1  whoever said polka dots weren't rad... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by sexy_penguin_ on: January 17, 2007 07:38:35 PM
...was greatly mistaken.
so, it's been a rather long while i've posted anything here, and i'm proud to say i finally got off my butt and MADE something.

this purse was a product of some random ideas and a LOT of fabric left from a dress project long dead.
now, pictures!

here's the front of the bag, please excuse the crappy pics as i just got my new camera and i'm not all that great with it yet.

you can't really tell, but it's got a little flap pocket on the front, with the actual pocket sandwiched inside the bag. im not sure that made any sense...
anyhow, here's the inside of the bag with a bunch of my crap in it meant to show scale but failing that, it's about 9"x12"x2.5"(it has a gusset and the bottom is rounded at the corners)

it's a bit too big for me (as you can see with all my stuff just thrown in it) and with figuring out that tricky pocket on the front, i completely spaced out and didn't put any other pockets in!
i'm pretty proud of it, and thinking of selling it/ more like it. If anyone could tell about how much you'd pay for it, and maybe any changes i should make (besides putting in more pockets ovbiously Tongue) that'd be great too!
thanks for looking!

well, i've been a) too lazy, and b) rather hesitant to shame so much duct tape by shaping it to my less than proportionate measurements to make one... but i heard something about using a shower curtain rod, and 3 of those L-shaped wall shelf brackets to make an adjustable one.. illustrated (rather quickly) by my mad ms paint skillz:
yeah, i forgot to include in there that if you do that whole drill- a - hole- in- the- base thing, you can adjust the height... but anywho... i think that should be effective, if not time intensive... i think i may just make one now... except for the fear i have of seeing myself, life- size, in all the honesty of duct tape... but alas.. i've wasted rather enough time... good job, and by the way, i LOVE your room... haha, I'd never guess you liked purple..

3  Another Done to Death saying made into a nifty shirt! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by sexy_penguin_ on: December 03, 2005 02:58:10 PM
So I know this saying is everywhere but I'm in love with the symbolism, ran across some cheap shirts today and was like, "hey, i should put this on a shirt!" so, without further ado, my shirt!

So yeah it says "Gun + Gun= Bang Bang Bang". Yeah here's a closeup because i take crappy puctures of myself.

so yeah. comments plz. Be gentle this is like my 3rd stencil and my 1st posted one..  Grin

I don't think that the knife would lose any sharpness, the cans are really easy to bend and cut. BUt I would reccomend NOT using the ice inside the cna if you're going to use a kitchen knife, I tried it that way (didn't have my exacto and was in a crafting frenzy) and it didn't work in the least. Here's mine, I used an exacto knife, and no ice inside the can... I think the kitchen knife would come to about the smae effect....
