71  From Drab To Fab - From Paper Bag To Framed Culture in Completed Projects by Rascal Kosher on: December 01, 2008 05:32:56 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.

This is made from a 1930's/1940's paper bag.
The bag comes from a hat shop in Jerusalem.
I got it from an old lady just because she thought it was neat that both me
and my man are Jewish and really into the era between 1930's - 1950's.

Instead of just having it laying around in a drawer I cut the bag in half,
framed it and hang it on the wall in our bedroom.
This is the result.

72  From Drab To Fab - From Cigarette Box To Jewelry Box in Completed Projects by Rascal Kosher on: December 01, 2008 05:25:25 AM

My man gave me this old and rater rusty cigarette box.
It only cost him 50 pence and he told me to do whatever I wanted with it.
I just cleaned it up a bit, spray painted it red and added a piece of scarlet felt in
the bottom.
It now has a Russian feel to it and I store my collection of vintage earrings in it.


The result.


Before.

73  From Drab To Fab - Portable Craft Box in Completed Projects by Rascal Kosher on: December 01, 2008 05:20:40 AM

I found this wooden box at a charity shop for 20 pence.
It was used to store slides in the 60's (I read the index) and I knew right
away that it would be a perfect craft box while traveling or just to have it
handy by the sofa if I get bored and want to do some craft.
I just removed the slide holders and laminated two pieces of wallpaper that
I glued onto the inside.


The result.


Before the face-lift.  Wink

74  From Drab To Fab - Napkin Holder in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Rascal Kosher on: December 01, 2008 05:15:58 AM

I got this napkin holder from the Hemsby rock n' roll weekender (UK)
car boot sale for 1.
It was in a state but I knew right away what I was gonna do to it as
soon as I got home.
I just removed the bamboo and the red "socks", spray painted it black
and then waited for it to dry before I put the pieces back.


The result. (Yes, I got Elvis napkins!)


Before the revamping.

75  From Drab To Fab - Pinup Helm in Completed Projects by Rascal Kosher on: December 01, 2008 05:09:05 AM

I found this helm wall ornament at a car boot sale for just 50 pence.
Since we got a 1950's boat bar we started to collect nautical stuff to go with it.
This helm was an old souvenir from Malta but it didn't really work for me so I
just printed out one of Gil Elvgrens pinups, lamintated the picture and glued it
onto the center of the helm. Much better!


This is the result.


This is what it looked like before.

76  1940's Summery Sun Top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Rascal Kosher on: December 01, 2008 04:53:18 AM
Made this from a pattern dated 1944.
I used an old curtain that used to hang in the kitchen window every
summer in my childhood home, a white pillowcase and two vintage buttons.
You tie this darling in the back.

77  Red Sailor Collar in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Rascal Kosher on: December 01, 2008 04:46:13 AM
This is one of many sailor collars I've made this year.
I was very inspired by 1940's nautical outfits.
I added a bow in each end to make it more feminine.
Perfect to wear with a plain top, it really dolls up your outfit.

I used red cotton fabric, white satin ribbon and red n' white stripe satin ribbon.

78  1950's Polkadot Blouse in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Rascal Kosher on: December 01, 2008 04:38:22 AM
I finished this in May or June but I haven't got around to post it.
I made it from a Swedish pattern dated 1950.
The fabric was an old curtain that I got dirt cheap in a charity shop
and the heart shaped buttons came from an ugly dress.
I actually started back in 2006 but found it again earlier this summer
in a trunk and decided that it was about darn time I finished it.
I'm rather pleased with the result.


Me and my blouse.


The pattern.

79  Cherry bag with bamboo handles. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Rascal Kosher on: March 17, 2008 08:23:31 AM
I was a good girl yesterday.
I FINALLY finished my cherry bag.
It's been hanging about in my "I do it later" - drawer for almost two years!
I don't know why I don't finish stuff while I'm at it.

I re-used the bamboo handles, they were from my maternal grandmother's
old bag and I used thick white fabric with cherry print.

80  Pulp clutch purse (The black one) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Rascal Kosher on: January 22, 2008 10:57:46 AM
I saw this cardboard books at my local craft shop and
this idea popped up in my head as I stood there.

I have a thing for old pulp book covers and since I have
a collection at home I decided to scan and laminate my
favorites. Turned out that I had a lot of favorites so I
thought it would be cool if I have one on each side for
more variation of the clutch.

I sprayed the cardboard book/box, made a hole for the
elastic band and the paper fastener (who in this case were
sprayed black first) then I glued some felt on the inside
and the laminated covers on each side.

Easy and in my opinion  a very cool clutch purse.
