61  X-mas Baubles With Pinups! in Winter Holidays by Rascal Kosher on: December 03, 2008 10:29:20 AM


Easy!
Search on eBay for water decals with pinups or whatever you fancy.
Get a pack of baubles, my choice was assorted colors.
Put the water transfers in warn - not hot - water and wait 20 seconds and
just slide the transfer onto the bauble, smooth it out with a piece of tissue
so there's no water, bubbles or wrinkles left.
Done!

I've been making these since 2003-2004 and everyone goes bonkers for them!
Perfect gift for the rockabilly or retromaniac.

62  Dorthy Accessories (My Wizard Of Oz Tribute) in Completed Projects by Rascal Kosher on: December 03, 2008 10:14:12 AM


I love red glittery things and this is my tribute to the Wizard Of Oz 70th anniversary 2009.
It's an eye-mask and a case for birth control pills.

Do you think Dorthy would have liked them?  Grin

63  Burlesque Choker in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Rascal Kosher on: December 03, 2008 10:04:19 AM


This one took me only 5 minutes to do and it cost me less than 1!
It's only satin ribbon, Velcro, tulle and a flower sewn together.
Perfect if you need something quick for a party.  Smiley

64  From Odd Vintage Bits To Something Oh So Sweet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Rascal Kosher on: December 03, 2008 09:53:44 AM


I love these earrings, I think it's the best pieces of jewelry I ever put together to be honest.
I made them out of odd vintage/antique bits I've had in my craft boxes for ages.
The roses used to be attached to a dress from H&M a' 1997.

Save & Revamp - That's me!  Grin

Note: There isn't any rust on the earrings, just a discoloration on the enamel since they are old.

65  1940's Red Gingham Sun Top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Rascal Kosher on: December 01, 2008 07:17:45 AM
Made this from a pattern dated 1944.
I used a red gingham cotton fabric and two vintage buttons.
(The hair-flowers is my creations too.)

This top won DD (Daily Deviation) on DeviantART this summer.
(Yes, I'm proud.)
 

Me in my lil' creation.


Front and back.


Please don't comment on my ink, it's work in progress and most of
it will be covered up in a near future. I know it looks bad at the mo.

66  From Drab To Fab - Wicker Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Rascal Kosher on: December 01, 2008 07:04:30 AM
I'm the queen when it comes to revamp stuff.
This one was a very easy task.
Hope I inspire you to revamp something in the near future.

I found this wicker bag in a charity shop and payed 1 for it.
My goal was to not overdo the revamping.
The bag itself is pretty exotic and I wanted to give it a little
extra spice to really bring out the best of it.

The first thing I did was to remove the two rater clumsy
"clasps" (not pictured) and then make a smaller clasp out
of a wooden bead and some metal wire.
I stitched two red flowers onto the outside with a thread with
the same shade of red as the flowers and stitched the
leopard printed felt on the inside. I used fishing line becuase
it's transparent and you can't tell it's there.

This project took me about 20 minutes and the material
cost me around 1.20.

67  From Drab To Fab - Vintage Sweing Box in Completed Projects by Rascal Kosher on: December 01, 2008 06:55:59 AM

My man bought me this big vintage sewing box for 1.50 in a charity shop.
It was in a state but with some love, determination and elbow-grease I
revamped into something that's a little more "me".

I started off with removing the old motif.
I wanted the new motif to match the rest of the  colors of the box so
I laminated a picture of Elvis by Andy Warhol (I didn't dare to decoupage it
because of the size of the picture) and glued it onto the top of the box,
it looks like it's framed.
I also added some plastic horse shoes I found in a cake shop.

Yes, this one is very similar to my VHS case purse.

68  From Drab To Fab - From Video Case To Funky Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Rascal Kosher on: December 01, 2008 05:54:20 AM
I'm the queen when it comes to revamp stuff.
This one was a very easy task.
Hope I inspire you to revamp something in the near future.

I used an old video case, glued some felt on the inside that match
the background of the picture, printed the picture (Elvis, by Andy Warhol)
and decoupaged it onto the case, I let it dry and then I added some
horseshoes that I found in a cake shop.
I had tons of beads over from another project that happened to match
Elvis shirt AND the background, I put them on a piece of metal wire,
drilled 4 small holes and fastened the wire.
TA-DA!

69  From Drab To Fab - Bettie Page Cigar Box Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Rascal Kosher on: December 01, 2008 05:46:16 AM

This one was a very easy task.

I found this terrible ugly cigar box purse at a car boot sale, my man
insisted on haggle the price down to a cool 1.25. (He loves that stuff.)
He knows how much I love cigar box purses and bamboo handles.
The old motif was terrible ugly but I knew that I could do something
really cool with it.

I removed the old front (but saved the beads for another project), cleaned
the metal end-bits, and then I printed and laminated a picture of Bettie Page,
glued it onto the front, folded the edges before I screwed the end-bits back on.
Then I glued a silk flower onto her hair.
TA-DA!

70  From Drab To Fab - Sexy Bettie Page Tray in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Rascal Kosher on: December 01, 2008 05:37:26 AM

I got it at a local car boot sale for 50 pence.
It was way too granny for me and in a bit of a state but I sensed that I
could make something cool out of it.
My man was helpful and stripped the white paint of the glass for me and
I did the rest.
Scanning and printing old magazine covers with Bettie Page and then
laminate them and put the glass back on that is.
