12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bright, Colorful, Rose Jewelry From Zippers on: January 02, 2009 09:41:02 AM
I have been making these like crazy lately, I am doing the Indie Sacramento
show on Saturday, so I will see how they sell.  I just love them because they are so colorful and interesting, definitely a conversation piece when someone notices they are made from a zipper!
Some little girl headbands made from plastic zippers

An array of Brooches, some plastic, some metal and some two tone:

Look how cute they look on a sweater:

I prefer stitching them, I feel like I can sculpt them better, but you can also use a low temp glue gun(just be careful of the glue showing)
Let me know what you think Grin
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Craft supply carry all tote made with a placemat and ziplock bags on: December 23, 2008 09:48:49 AM
My mom has made these for years for her quilter friends as gifts.  The are really great for organizing your craft supplies like embroidery floss, trim, or whatever.  I use mine all the time.  I made some for a craft fair, and they went over well.  let me know what you think, I could do a quick tutorial if anyone wants, they are super easy.  I picked up this placemat and the vintage trim at a thrift store and I buy the ziplock zipper freezer bags at Target (their brand)

Thanks for looking!
14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pink felted clutch lined with yummy Heather Bailey fabric on: November 23, 2008 07:36:51 PM
I really wanted to make a felted bag, and my knitting skills are very basic.  So I did a little research and came up with this:

This bag is lined with my favorite fabric designer of the moment, Heather Bailey.  I give instructions how to make this (it is really simple) on my BLOG
15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Earrings made from vintage sewing trim/lace on: November 23, 2008 05:49:35 PM
I made these earrings by using fabric stiffener on some vintage flower trim you would typically use for sewing.
 
I posted a tutorial on my BLOG
Check it out they were super easy to make and there are so many options of what type of fabric you can use.
16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Orange Crush Felted Clutch on: October 08, 2008 04:23:20 PM
I made this felted clutch, and I think it turned out lovely.  As most people know I Loooove the color orange and I fell in love with this wool yarn the moment I saw it.  I used a great vintage button for the closure, and lined it with this great cotton Heather Bailey fabric.

 

let me know what you think, thanks for looking Cheesy

I made these earrings from a technique I saw in a craft magazine, where they used fabric stiffner and lace.  I decided that I would use skeleton fabric, and i think they came out pretty good.

I am in love with this book, bend the rules SEWING, by Amy Karol(the fabric store near my house is closing so I got the book for 50% off, score!).  The cover project is so cute and easy and makes a last minute gift.  I have made a few of these so far and plan to make many more.


This one i made as a last minute gift for a friend to keep her invisaline braces in:





This one i made for a swap, I used red linen fabric and painted the dots on it:






It is really fun to pick out contrasting fabrics and the buton Cheesy
