2  License plate mailbox in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by gdeeaz on: August 19, 2009 04:56:39 PM
About a year ago i saw a license plate mailbox for sale on some website for about $300 and I really loved it but it wasn't the kind that was wall mounted so I didn't get it. (i also didn't want to spend $300 for a mailbox)

A few weeks ago I made a california mailbox and I kinda over did it and made a few more. Here is a picture of the one I have mounted.



the design is really simple but they are a pain in the butt to make. after making a few of these i have realized i am not as strong as i thought i was, i had to get my dad to break some of the rivets for me.

3  Bibs, Diaper bag, and Changing pad. in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by gdeeaz on: October 05, 2008 02:03:02 PM
Yesterday was my cousins baby shower and I decided I would make her a gift. At first I was only going to make her some baby bibs, but then I decided to make a changing pad, bibs, and a diaper bag. She is also a student so I figure until the baby is born she can use it for college. I am still pretty new to sewing so there are a few mistakes but she really loved the gifts.

Changing pad. The back is fleece and it is covered with fusible vinyl.


the Velcro closure


The baby bibs, I made two of each print. It was pretty interesting making these, I am not used to doing curves so it was good practice.  Grin


This is the diaper bag.


Inside the bag. This was my first time making elastic pockets and zippered pockets


Filled with gifts

4  My first sewing projects in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gdeeaz on: September 12, 2008 10:35:55 AM
So this is my first time posting on this board, I have made purses before but those were made of either pop tabs, or hubcaps and license plates. Since i am starting college soon i needed a messenger bag, and i do have one that works great and i love it but it is to small to carry my laptop so i made these two. i made alot of mistakes when making these but i still love them both.

this one is about 16" x 12" x 5"




This one is a small one about 12" x 10" x 3"



And here is the messenger bag i have been using for about a year but is too small  Sad (i did not make this one)

I finally made a tute here you go. if you have any questions feel free to ask me.  Smiley
Smiley First get all of your supplies together. It will go a lot faster if you have everything ready to go.
Get something that is about the same size as your hubcaps. And wrap the first LP around it. Try to make it as round as possible, there will be a few little kinks.

Next drill holes into the lip of your hubcaps. All hubcaps have different types of lips.

After you drill the holes wrap the first LP around the hubcaps and mark were the holes in the hubcaps meet the LP.

Drill holes into the LP

Next you will rivet the LP and the hubcap together. Make sure the holes line up.

After you rivet it, you will need to make holes on the other side of the LP.

Rivet the LP to the second hubcap

After you rivet you will have something that looks like this

If your hubcaps have lips showing use tin snips to cut them off.

Next wrap the second LP around your round object. Like you did in the first step.

Next cut your piano hinge to the size of the LP about 6 inches.

Sand down the sharp edge.

Mark where you need to drill holes to attach the hinge to the LP

Drill the holes into the LP for the hinge

Rivet the hinge to the LP

Next you need to cut off the extra piece of LP. The second LP should flap over the first LP about of an inch.  Use tin snips

Mark where the hinge will attach to the second LP, the sharp edge should be attached to the hinge.

Drill the holes where the hinge will attach.
 
Rivet the hinge to the second LP

You will now have something that looks like this

Now drill a hole on both hubcaps at the very top. This is to attach the d ring hangers

Rivet the d ring hanger to the hubcap

Next you will need to work on the closure. Drill a hole about two inches down on the first LP in the center

If you use a backpack strap as the closure you should use a lighter to burn the edge so the edges dont fray.

Attach one side of the snap closure to the LP and the top part to the strap.

Measure the length you need of the strap. Make it about of an inch longer then you think you need.

Drill a hole into the bottle cap

Drill a hole into the second LP. In the center of the LP and about a  inch from the edge of the LP.

Stack the bottle cap the strap and the LP. Then rivet it all together.

To cover the original holes that are in the LPs I used bigger rivets that cover the roles. I put a metal washer behind the plate and used a rivet.

Next drill four holes into the bottom of your purse. Make sure they are the same distance and straight across from each other. This is important, you dont want a lopsided purse.


I used acorn nuts as the feet. Screw the acorns into the bottom of the purse.

I did not take pics of the lining because it is hard to take pics at the same time as gluing it. All I did was use a spray fabric glue. Or you can use a glue gun or whatever you like.
Then your done!!!!!!!!

7  Clay, Paint, feathers, and stones OH MY in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by gdeeaz on: August 01, 2008 12:52:11 AM
My dad bought these molds for these figures about 11 years ago when i was 7. and when we moved a month later we lost them in all the boxes of craft stuff we have. so i was raiding our garage a few weeks ago and i found them YEY!. So i just used the molds with white polymer clay, and then painted them and added feathers and stones and this is what i ended up with. kinda weird but i like them.

on the wall with some of the wooden figures my dad has collected. he has a few hundred lol

8  Dog House Big enough for three. in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by gdeeaz on: July 27, 2008 01:44:02 PM
My dad and i made this dog house about a month ago. it took us two days to make. one day to make it, and one day to paint it.

The outside of the house. and my dads dog modeling the doggie door.


we have four cars so i have to pull mine into the backyard. so we put a gate that can close around the doors so the dogs wont run out of the yard when the gates are open.


the side veiw with the window. so we can check up on them without waking them up.


the other side.


looking through the window.


and the inside. the main reason we made this is because when it rains, water sometimes gets into the normal dog houses since they are not high off the ground. we have three full grown boxers and they need their own beds. as you can see it has wheels so my dad can move it.


they love it. my dad also put a light above the houses that turn on when someone walks in the house to check on them.
