12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My first zipper attempt on: November 23, 2007 11:01:24 AM
I saw these "coin purses" everywhere on here and Noix85 posted a tut,
(credit since she was my inspiration to actually attempt something like this)

 I decided it was time for me to make one, but I didnt use the tut, mines a lil different since the zipper went straight down the middle of one of the Firemen!

Im beyond proud of this! I made it to go with a bag I made here:
13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / refound love of jewelery making on: November 22, 2007 02:09:05 PM
I haven't made anything in a while, I got caught up in moving around and then sewing a ton because my mom reignited that fire but I fell in love with these beads and faux pearls. I was up till all hours of the night but here is some of what I came up with. The ring is my favorite!!!!

Let me know what you think!

15  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Love Letter box- image heavy ...now with link to online tut... on: November 04, 2007 07:28:58 PM
I hope Ive put this in an appropriate place ....

A while back I made this "Love Letter" Box Its quite possibly my favorite thing Ive ever made, I moved around a lot and it got left in boxes in storage due to lack of room ... I found it looking for more crafting stuff!
The second I saw it I knew I had to share it with everyone here....
so without further adieu:

I adore this thing and plan on making more, I need to find someone whos good at faux finish painting so they can paint me some vintage envelopes.

Id love to know what everyone thinks!

*****Link provided by Staciart to the Carol Duvall tut (who knew?)***** 
This is fabulous! I've never known anyone who has made this - looks way better than mine!  I was trying to do the one from Carol Duvall show, but couldn't get it to look anywhere near as good as your  :\

 Smiley     I rocked it, too!  Here is a link for instructions: http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/cr_paper_crafts_boxes/article/0,,HGTV_3289_1399648,00.html
16  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / dragonfly, snowflake and crazy belt! on: October 24, 2007 02:51:22 PM
I love these! This was one of my favorites, it used to be on a clear stretchy necklace worn as a choker with my Poca-Hottness [LOL] halloween costume a few years back...

"snowflake" - I made a ton of these for my friends mini christmas tree in various colors...

I made this belt to wear with my Pocca-Hotness halloween costume too ... took FOREVER! all seed beads ...yikes!

17  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / I even impressed myself with this one! on: October 20, 2007 09:55:56 AM
The outer fabric is from a table runner I got for 2 bucks!
The linner (holy cow I actually did a liner in a purse) is leftover sheets I used to actually make a trial run on a dress ... see here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=203033.0

18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / trial run on: October 20, 2007 09:54:27 AM
I got a pattern (McCalls M512-Hillary Duff collection) I wanted to do a trial run cheap Because the only thing Ive sewn larger than a purse was my costume last year with the help of good ole' moms. This time no mom ... I used a sheet that I got uber cheap, It turned out good enough to wear in public!  Cheesy

The back doesnt gape open like this I guess its the way Im standing...

I plan on making it next in the fabric I originally picked out but Im adding sleeves since its getting chilly here.
19  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Target clearance placemats = my newest purse on: October 15, 2007 09:37:18 PM

20  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / last years good witch costume on: October 13, 2007 08:48:52 AM
This was my first ever major sewing project, I had my mom here so I could go to her for any advice or translation of sewing terms. I thought it wouldn't be too hard since I made my daughter a Eeyore costume the previous year for her first halloween ....  Ill post those too if I can find the pics ...

heres me with my angelbaby:
she was Dumbo, my stepdad found the costume last minute at a second hand store ... sweetness!:

and me with my mommy:
she was a fairy:

 Ill have to find the other pics or take some more the sleeves have a sheer thingie over them .... and the back is a corset-y type thing ....
