11  New bag with braided handles in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by dizzybell06 on: April 01, 2009 05:01:49 PM
Hey everyone!  I made this bag over the weekend and overall I am pretty happy with it.  I hand braided the handles and I added three pockets - one on the outside and two on the inside.  One pocket on the inside also has three spots for pens or crocheting needles.  This bag was also way inexpensive to make - the purple fabric was given to me from a friends stash and the lining fabric was really cheap from the as-is section at Ikea!  I hope you guys like it!

12  Thomas the Tank Engine bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by dizzybell06 on: March 20, 2009 04:49:24 PM
Hi everyone!  I just made this tote bag for my little cousin for his second birthday.  He loves Thomas the Tank Engine so I made this bag for him to put his trains in.  It took about 2 1/2 hours to make (I mess up a lot!) and it is reversible.  The bag looks a little wonky because the only thing I had on hand to stuff it with was yarn balls - it looks better in person!  Hope you guys like it!

13  "Watching the Wheels" in CHALLENGE 36 ENTRIES by dizzybell06 on: March 05, 2009 08:41:11 PM
So let me start by saying that this is my first challenge! ... and my project did not turn out exactly how I would have hoped it would ... or as good as I was hoping for.  I became pressed for time so I had to skip a lot of the details that I planned to include.  This was my first time embroidering (if thats what you can call the attempt that I made!)  I chose "Watching the Wheels" by John Lennon.  The middle is his face and he is dreaming of peace ... the line in the song that I picked to focus on was 'People say I'm lazy dreaming my life away".   I was inspired by the picture of John lennon that I posted below.  I changed the lens of his glasses to tires since the song is called watching the wheels and I made the tiny thought  bubbles shaped like flowers. I just embroidered right onto a t-shirt.  I hope you guys like what I came up with, hopefully I will be able to go back and focus on the detail another time.  I hope this all makes sense ... I'm pretty tired!

finished




Good luck everyone!

14  Striped Wallet in Crochet: Completed Projects by dizzybell06 on: February 14, 2009 10:29:38 AM
I crocheted this wallet type thing for a girl at work who wanted a wallet type thingy to hold receipts in for her other job. I sort of based it off of a little pouch that I had made before and I sort of made a pattern from that.  I made some adjustments and I think it turned out alright ... it's a little wonky, but it's not terrible.  Hope you guys like it!

15  Pen and Ink Doodles in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by dizzybell06 on: February 10, 2009 04:20:28 PM
I made these when I was at work - it gets boring watching kids after school everyday and when they don't need help with home work and stuff like that I doodle to fill my time.  I work at an after school programs so all of the kids want me to make a doodle for them wit their name in it ever since I made the first one with my name in it.  These are the three I had on hand - The top one with the pink around it is for one of the kids and it says "Naomi" in it,  the one on the side with the green around it is just random doodles, and the one on the bottom with the blue around it says my name, "Liz" in it.  Hope you guys like them!

16  Christmas Cards in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by dizzybell06 on: December 26, 2008 12:40:10 PM
I made these cards and envelopes for my parents and grandparents for Christmas.  The letters on the front are from magazines and the tiny green stars are brads that I used to hold on the star cut out to wrap the string around.  You open the card by unwinding the string from around the star and brad.  The green envelope is made from construction paper and the red envelope had red construction paper "lining" and the outside is a Revlon ad from a magazine as well.  I am pretty happy with how they turned out.  Hope you all like them!

17  One skein scarf <3 in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by dizzybell06 on: December 24, 2008 09:51:53 PM
So after seeing everyone's one skein scarf I realized that I had to finally get the Happy Hooker book ... and I fell in love with it.  This scarf is so fast and the book has wonderful directions.  Also thanks to cocomarie and cjshinn for answering my random pm's even though you don't know me!  You were both very helpful - thanks so much.

I'm pretty happy with the results ... it could have been better, but all in all I think it turned out pretty well

18  Pocket storage wall hanging in Completed Projects by dizzybell06 on: November 17, 2008 05:23:28 PM
I wasn't really sure were to put this.  It's a storage hanging to organize some of my sewing and craft items.  I got the idea from one similar to mine that someone made, but I can't remember where it was.  Mines not perfect and its a little crooked but it works and I didn't get to picky about it because it is only for me and not someone else.  Hope you guys like it!

19  Purple/Pink scarf in Crochet: Completed Projects by dizzybell06 on: November 13, 2008 05:13:25 PM
Hi everyone!  I made this scarf a few weeks ago for one of the girls I watch at my work.  It is done in double crochet.  I think it turned out pretty good.  For some reason it curves a little, but she loved it so that's all that matters.

20  New Bag!! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by dizzybell06 on: November 08, 2008 08:49:30 AM
Hey everyone!  So I made this bag about 2 weeks ago.  I have had loyda1's plaid bag (check it out here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=262495.0) saved in my bookmarks for a while now and I happened to find some left over plaid fabric at home.  It turned out ok, but I'm happy with it.  My bag is a little bit wider and not as tall like loyda1's bag.  I didn't have the neat straps like loyda1 did, but I found some on two craft bags I had and don't use so I cut them off and sewed them together with a strip of fabric.  I also put a big pocket on the front, but there aren't any pockets inside.  I love this bag and I want to make more, and hopefully better ones soon!!  Thanks loyda1 for the inspiration! I hope you all like it!

Pics!  (sorry they are pretty bad!)





Comments and criticism are greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks again loyda1!!! I'm so happy you made and posted that bag!!
