21  various bead projects, necklace, bracelet, earrings in Beads: Completed Projects by thebluepixie on: June 30, 2008 02:53:20 PM
So I've had some time on my hands and have gone a bit mental with the whole crafting thing! Hope you like the beads...
Theres a brillant tute for the necklace on this board, search for "princess necklace". My personal favourite is the earrings; I'm not a big fan of the bracelet but thats mainly because I don't dig the colour combination, it was made with some left overs from a commission! Thanks for looking....

22  Flower Power Chair in CHALLENGE 28 ENTRIES by thebluepixie on: June 01, 2008 08:49:35 AM
I made this a little while ago so i don't have pictures of the original chair(s)- sorry!.
This chair was rescued from the parts of three chairs which were headed for a bonfire (so the legs, back and seat all came from different chairs), they were basically your bog-standard pine flat-packed dining chairs but after years of abuse they were scratched, wobbly or else bits had actually snapped.  I don't want to think how many hours and packs of sandpaper it took to get the bits of the chair smooth again, the seat especially had some really deep gouges i wanted gone but lets say i sanded for so long that the motor on my electric sander burnt out and i had to finish by hand! The flowers are all individually cut out from a huge stash of gardening magazines I found in the attic (credit has to go to my mum for spending hours cutting flowers out with me : ta.xx), the flowers were then stuck to the wood with pva glue and then finally I varnished the whole thing half to death because there needed to be a lot of layers to keep the paper and the soft pine protected from being damaged again. So basically a frustrating project but I love how it turned out, a permanent reminder of spring.  Cheesy

23  Re: Plastic Pony beads...what to do?? in Beads: Discussion and Questions by thebluepixie on: May 29, 2008 01:55:58 PM
okay so here's the whole weaving thing. Hope its clear and that the text is big enough. Personally when i read some instructions i found it hard to envisage but as soon as you have the threads and beads in front of you its pretty clear and easy. I'll post something on putting together a cheap loom in a bit but I need to write several thousand words on philosophy first  Undecided

24  PVC Jacket in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by thebluepixie on: May 19, 2008 03:03:22 AM
I've made clothes before but never from a pattern but there were some on sale so I thought I'd give it a go.... The jacket was a NewLook pattern but the picture on the packet was pretty hateful so i shortened it, brought the waist in (not enough!) and added a collar. I should have got a picture of the lining, its a deep green.

25  recycled plastic bag bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by thebluepixie on: May 11, 2008 01:25:09 PM
I found a tute on ETSY for fusing plastic bags together and since I had a whole load knocking round the flat (+ an iron) I decided to give it a go. Fuse enough plastic bags together and the fabric is both water-proof and nigh on indestructable, although both these bags I lined with denim from some old jeans because I find it makes it a bit more flexible.

the carrier bags I made this with were nice bright colours but lacked any interesting logo's so I made the flowers out of the handles I'd cut off

This ones a bit more obviously made of recycled bags since the store logos are all still on show, I made it for a UNICEF charity auction and it was so hard to part with! Smiley
