Hope you like it - Thanks for looking  Smiley

Vintage Leather brooch

12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bag Charms etc. (recycled clothing tags) on: November 26, 2007 01:18:14 PM
Recycled clothing tags at different stages.

I don't know if you're familiar with them but the 'George' tag at the top is how it started.  A thick cardboard tag that comes attached to the clothing when it's bought.

I sanded them, painted, collaged, rubberstamped, etc. etc. 

The playboy one I made into a bag charm for my daughter.  But they could also be made into keyrings, necklaces, brooch pins, whatever your imagination can come up with that I can't think of LOL. 

Thanks for looking.

13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / More SODA CAN Trinkets on: November 26, 2007 12:29:56 PM
OK sorry to be boring but what can I say?  I have LOADS of soda cans!!!  Cheesy

Here's the latest new ones - Coke Can Necklace and Pop Tab button brooch. Thank you for taking the time to look at them  Kiss

14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Dr Seuss Cat in the Hat T-Shirt Recon (Image Heavy) on: November 25, 2007 02:44:53 PM
This is my 2nd T-shirt reconstruction.  I was quite happy with the way it came out.

I bought a cat in the hat pajama top at a car boot sale and I really liked it but it had some coffee stains (or something?) down the front of it and it was a bit big and out of shape.  This is it:

I also had this t-shirt that had shrunk too short for me (somehow?)

So I put them together and made this:  I hope you like it, it's only my second try - Thanks for taking the time to look  Smiley

(That's a heart on the back with a tiny Dr Suess label that was inside the t-shirt added to the edge)
15  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Soda Can Candle holder/Ashtray/Candy dish.......... on: November 15, 2007 03:43:33 PM
I hope this is in the right place?  Sorry if it isn't  Huh

Little dishes I made out of soda cans.  I guess the use for them is only limited by your imagination.

I hope you like them - Thanks for looking!

16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / FIRST T-Shirt Surgery- Comments Welcome (Image heavy) on: September 21, 2007 04:34:03 PM
So here it is then.  I've wanted to do this for AGES but I've never had the courage to cut something up as I can't sew.

Still - I'm going to a party tomorrow night (husbands work friends that I've never met!) I wanted something new but I have NO money  Undecided  So I thought it was time to give it a try.

SEVEN HOURS LATER (I thought it would take about 20 mins LOL) Sewn finger  Cry and sewed the top to the bottom by accident and had to unpick it all.  3 T-Shirts, 1 tired person.

What do you think?  I'd welcome any comments as I know I did quite a lot wrong but hey I'm learning.

Sorry about the size of the pics.  I don't know why they are so big  Huh
17  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / cute cushion cover on: April 18, 2007 04:15:25 AM
I know it's not rocket science but I made this cushion cover for my son out of an old t-shirt - He likes it  Smiley and I'm new to cutting up t-shirts so I was quite pleased with it and thought I'd share.


I nearly forgot the before pic  Roll Eyes but you can see it WAS a t-shirt right?


18  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Paper Beads on: April 17, 2007 11:54:25 AM
I made these paper beads - My first since I was a child  Smiley

I'm thinking of coating them in something to make them look more like glass and then I have no idea what I'll do with them but it was fun.


19  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Matching Card and Magnet (Old Rugged Cross - Primitive) on: April 17, 2007 11:50:11 AM
I hope this is the right place.  I realise a card is paper stuff but as it has a matching magnet I thought I'd put it in here  Huh (Please move it if I messed up)  Roll Eyes

This is a card and matching magnet (as I said) that I made for somebody I care about. 




20  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Even MORE Hama Perler Beads - Sorry! (Img heavy) on: April 17, 2007 11:44:30 AM
I'm making something different as I type - I promise!

I just CAN'T stop doing these!


I'm thinking of making these bats into a necklace - What do you think??



And I HAD to add this one - My 7 year old daughter made this ALL on her own!!!  Shocked It's meant to be her (as it happens it's a good likeness)  Cheesy
