21  Ruffled Mini Skirts, lots of them :) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by charmingflaws on: June 18, 2009 01:49:36 PM
I love making these skirts. They take me an hour and the pattern is easy and they fit all sorts of sizes. I am so happy with them! They're all made from vintage thrifted fabrics.

The fabric on this one is called The Painted Desert, which I think is the most romantic name ever.




Made from a thrifted sheet.



This fabric is called Canterbury Manor, which I also love. I think fabric-namer is a good career choice.


White linen.


From recycled t shirts.


More vintage fabric.




Thanks!!

22  Pleated Curtain Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by charmingflaws on: June 15, 2009 07:04:51 PM
I am very pleased with how this turned out! I had a great vintage curtain (one single panel of it) that I got at a thrift store and I used the original pleats. So it was really easy! Just a big ol' tote made of this great brocade fabric.

25  lots of vintage goodness.. I do mean lots. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by charmingflaws on: May 27, 2009 01:11:14 PM
I just signed up for my first craft fair so I've been crafting up a storm. Here are a few things I've made lately, mostly vintage materials.

This one is made from a vintage pin, chain, and a lot of fake pearls.




This one has a brass fan charm, a glass bead, a salvaged rose earring, and some great vintage ribbon.




I call this one the Sword and the Spyglass. It has a vintage watch movement.



A vintage earring as a ring..


Some drapey chain and a watch movement


Miracle Elixir necklace... I was reading Wicked.


Thanks for taking a look!

26  Hinge+Vintage Rope Chain in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by charmingflaws on: May 22, 2009 10:36:36 PM
I am really pleased with how this came out. I think it is kind of couture, maybe if you stretch that a little Wink

It's a vintage hinge and some fantastic vintage rope chain I've been saving for like a year. I want it's future owner to wear it to a fancy gala or something.

27  Knob Ring... or the biggest ring known to mankind. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by charmingflaws on: May 17, 2009 11:37:12 AM
This one is a real whopper. I love big rings, but I've never made them this big.

It's made from a knob that says "oven". It is actually two inches at its longest point. But it's really lightweight and doesn't slip around. I thought it would break really easily but it is actually really strong. Nice surprise!

28  Light Meters... part 3! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by charmingflaws on: May 16, 2009 10:00:14 PM
I just can't stop. I love gutting light meters. Quick explanation: those adorable devices for photography that help you find the right exposure. I take them apart and make jewelry. There are two other posts on craftster floating around.

Today's creations!

I call these Photo Donuts.


And this one is moveable! I love it.

29  Photography Jewelry Part 3 in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by charmingflaws on: April 09, 2009 05:30:55 PM
So I have an addiction..? I do think I am at the end of my camera parts though. But I made this ring out of the windy bit that winds the film of a 35 mm camera. The little door opens up! I am very happy with this one. (I made some necklaces and earrings that are floating around craftster).






Thanks guys!

30  Paper Bustle in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by charmingflaws on: March 25, 2009 06:28:06 PM
Well.. it's kind of clothing.

I made this bustle for my 3D class (they call it woodshop, it's kind of a lie) this semester. It has a cardboard structure and I covered it in newspaper rufffles, with a big butt bow. I just sort of stand in a cavity in the front. It had a tie that held me in but it (gasp) broke during my critique. Yeah that was fun.
