2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / linenandroses card case on: March 31, 2005 12:08:14 PM
I know these things are no big deal, but my cards were getting pretty narly floating around in my bag.
So I make a case for them. Brown linen and a bedsheet.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / zippered collar t-shirt on: March 31, 2005 11:54:36 AM
hey guys.
in a desperate need to sew something I actually liked for the first time in months, I put together this shirt, which an existing red t-shirt, 3 zippers and NO ZIPPER FOOT. I don't know what happened to it, but it's gone, needless to say sewing zippers in has never been messier, or as unfinished. This shirt will be redone when I find my zipperfoot or buy a new one.

anyway. Here it is:
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / knit cuffs on: January 10, 2005 05:09:43 PM
I made some patchwork cuffs a while ago and put them in the jewelry section, but I don't think they quite are, let me know if I'm wrong about that.

I just learned how to knit like.. I don't know about two weeks ago and I've been making these knitted cuffs with random buttons on them. Here are a few photos, I apologize for the quality.

5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / rock and spiral note books-- tutorial on: December 24, 2004 01:05:59 AM
Alright kittens, I wanted to make my sister some notebooks for Christmas because shes till in high school and she's keeping good copies of all of her notes.
I wanted to give her spiral bound note books because they're the easiest to keep notes in (you know what I mean), but I needed to find a way to cover the Hilroy cover without that edge behind the spiralling.  I used old LP sleeves from the thrift store.
Well, here it is.


annnd a tutorial:

step one
unfold the sleeve

step two
cut the cover off

step three
crop to fit your notebook (generally 8x10.5")

step four
flip over the sleeve image, and on the back mark lines that match up with each ring in the spiral, make them fairly lengthy

step five
draw one straight line accross all of the little ones

step 6
punch holes at all of the junctions

cut little lines from the edge to the hole

step 8
fit into spiral binding (just push the tabs in carefully) and glue down.
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / patchwork wrist cuffs on: December 04, 2004 10:53:21 AM
Hey guys, with the need for christmas presents, and to make use of my ever growing fabric scrap collection, I made these cuffs.

I didn/t set the white balance on my camera, so perhaps I'll rephotograph later, but you get the idea.

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / walkman case... pictures fixed on: October 15, 2004 09:46:58 PM
I am a strong advocate of the casette tape walkman.
so, it really was only natural to make a case for it.

I'm going to go pick up some velcro dots, so the flap with fasten closed... but otherwise here it is.

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / seems like you ladies are all over this type of thing-picture fixed on: August 26, 2004 01:38:22 PM
Here's an off the shoulder top I made for a friend who's moving away.
It was made to fit her, so I won't model it, and she hasn't seen it yet.

So here's a picture of it on the floor. The top band is actually sewn straight I just didn't lie it flat down.

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / fake inches? on: February 15, 2004 03:37:43 PM
out of stark curiosity i thought a pattern i bought might have been too small, so i checked the sizing charts and my suspicions were confirmed that the inches for the size I'd bought were much less than the number I thought I was. HOWEVER I always buy that size and it always seems to fit

has anyone else experienced anything like this?
do the inches on the chart match your actual inches?

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / wool skirt, made on the bias on: February 14, 2004 10:27:24 PM
well. here it is. quite the simple skirt-
thin-medium weight wool, mossy green with little vurges of dark browns, whites, reds and oranges.

hunted down some vintage four hole buttons and sewed them near the hem at the bottom left.

side zipper.
