The lights that I got had about 3" from the switch to the first light so there aren't any lights on the outside.  When I make one for myself I will fix the switch to the back since I know where I plan on setting it.
 The wooden box wasn't that hard to get thru. You could probably just hammer a nail thru it to get the hole to string the lights into it.

 I dremelled a small hole behind the candles and strung the light thru. I was debating gluing the switch to the back but depending on how she hung it up that could cause it to lean weird and I also wanted to leave it exposed so she could change the battery if need be.

Brief Description: I made this shirt for Abbeeroad in the Favorite Book Swap. Its for a book that we both like (I love) called Love and Decay.

Project Name: If you never saw the Stars
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=448226.0
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.) I found my old Dremel and put a small hole in the back of a wooden box and attached the lights with bonding glue. This piece has candles, electrical wires, wood, glue, and paint. Lots of different mediums. Its one of my favorite quotes from the Raven Boys, If you never saw the stars, candles were enough.

Team: Analog

Bonus Points: Community, Swaptastic, Brain Power
Project Name: Eternal Tote
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=448224.0
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.) I had this wild hair that I was going to learn to freeform sew for this tote. I had the idea and couldnt shake it. It was for a swap with Abbeeroad and I had to do it.
 First I decided I needed to hand paint/dye my fabrics. I was making it way more difficult because I had this vision in my head. You can read about it in the Community post.
 I watched some YouTube videos and found some instructions in an old Paper, Cloth, Scissors magazine. After I got the dog feed down it wasnt that bad. Just go slow and try to keep the stitches even (who am I kidding that didnt work). At first I was jerking it all around and it was a mess. LOL! I was very nervous on if she would like it or think it was a huge mess. She said she liked it. I thought the style went with the quote, from Perks of being a Wallflower, and in that moment, I swear we were infinite. Free form stitching felt energetic.

 Okay, I have no idea where this would go so I am guessing here. Moderator, sorry if you have to move this....

  I made this for the Favorite Book Swap. Its one of my favorite quotes from Maggie Stievater and its from the book The Raven Boys (or maybe the second one, Dream Thief  Huh ).
  This is one of my all-time favorite quotes. I really wanted to make something out of it. I had the idea and ran with it. I also love that it lights up. Thats one of the things I havent done much of with crafts and I decided it was time to light something up (but not with fire). Fairy lights it is!
 I really want to make another one for myself. The quote says, "If you never saw the stars, candles were enough".
 Here it is with the lights on.

 And lights off. I tried to swirl the wire so it had an interesting, kind of Van Gogh meets Burton feel when it was off.

 Thanks for checking it out.

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Eternal Free form sewing tote on: June 28, 2016 07:26:22 AM
 
 For the Favorite Book Swap I had this idea to make a freeform panel for a tote for my partner. I have never attempted to freeform sew before but I was determined. I had this vision of what I wanted to do and couldnt shake it.
 The first road block I came across before I even started sewing was the design. I needed a heart on the fabric. I used Inktense pencils and drew one out on white fabric but as you can see on the left, it wasnt really that intense. I let it dry and went back over it. That was the result. So I decided to try a couple more ideas. I didnt want to use acrylic because I didnt want it to be stiff or hard to sew thru. I ended up painting some Tim Holts inks onto it. I let it all dry, heat set it and then hand washed it. It held up pretty good.

 I did the same for the strips of fabric minus the Inktense pencils. I just dripped the Holts ink on then uses the reducer on it to blur it all out. Here it is before the reducer. I also used paint pens for the words so they would stand out and be clear. The Quote is from The Perks of Being a Wall Flower and says, and in that moment, I swear we were infinite. Such a great quote!

 Im not sure how youre really supposed to freeform sew but I pinned my pieces down and then just started. It was a little jarring at first. No, I dont have the freeform sewing foot. I plan to get one though. I was just so happy to get the dog feed to go up and down that I wasnt really concerned past that point. LOL!

 And then I just sketched and wiggled all over it. Below is the first run with the blue. I used four or five different colors of thread.

 I was really pleased on how it turned out. Especially for my first one. I think I want to fix the first heart and do something with it too. I loved the organic and energetic outcome.  I also enjoyed trying something new.

Thanks for checking it out.
