1  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Maybe you wonderful craftsters can help?? on: July 01, 2008 12:12:49 AM
So here is the story and all the terrible tragedy that has rocked my world and brought me to my knees.  A dear and sweet friend of mine was beaten to death by her long time boyfriend on Friday morning.  She left behind four amazing children who are now going to be raised by their grandfather.  They are just the sweetest kids!  I know that we can't do anything to help their mother now but, I would like to do some fund raising to help these kids!  I was thinking about doing some jewelry pieces using shrink plastic that you can print on and printing Tricia's photo on it.  Maybe keychains and necklaces???  I was also thinking about a craft sale or a Chinese auction?  Any suggestions?  Ideas? Here is the link to the myspace page that I did for Tricia. http://www.myspace.com/riptricia 
2  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / My Lucky Drinking Shoes on: March 15, 2008 10:27:27 PM
 Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll EyesCheck out my lucky drinking shoes! Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Okay I have never ever ever done a project with shoes-- St Pats day is comming up and I had in my head the perfect shoe??  Well, pressed for time and still unable to find my shoes whats a crafty girl to do??  Step one buy a pair of shoes from walmart for 5 dollars-white canvas loafers.




Step 2- Paint those plain white loafers kiwi green so when you spill your green beer on them they still look okay(I used acrylic paint with textile medium added in)




Step 3- Take out your seam ripper and go to town ripping out the strange gathered part to the shoe-- and start painting away using all the shades of green paint that you have been hording away in the paint cupbard.



Step 4- Sew in some elastic to hold the cuteness to your foot so that the shoe will not fly off of your foot while drinking a green st. paddy's day beer and dancing an Irish jig. LOL  I hope everyone enjoys looking at these shoes as much as I enjoyed making them over for St. Patricks Day!  Thanks for looking!



3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Celtic Trinity Knot Tiny Jordy on: March 13, 2008 11:21:36 AM
So here is my new tiny little purse-- I have just started Applique and this was my second attempt-- I used green variegated thread to satin stitch around the Celtic knot-- I had a lot of problems.  My bobbin thread would not catch and there was a lot of profane language flying around!  I finally fixed the problem (I replaced my sewing machines needle) and it was all better.  So anyway here it is and I am extremely happy that it is over as is my seam ripper! and truth be told my roommate is probably ecstatic as well-- next time I do this Celtic knot design I will put it on a bigger bag.  Any suggestions would be appreciated!  Thanks for looking.


4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bird is the word bag on: March 10, 2008 10:28:15 AM
Hello all-  I have been making bags off and on for the last few years, although here lately more off than on.  A few of my friends and I are trying to get some crafty goodness together for this summer and we are going to peddle our wares at a few music festivals.  I am trying to get back into the groove of making bags again.  Here is my red bird bag-- I used felt for the bird.  Please tell me what you think?
