I do not know about you, but I have made book purses before, just two, always wanted to make more, but I just can't tear no book, so what did I do, I made my own book using plastic canvas and Scotch tape. I used paint on the outside and felt in the inside. I plan to make a better one once I don't run out of the Scotch tape like I did this one, because I like how I have done the alternative book. So, this was kind of done bit of sloppy, but I wanted to be able to enter my first challenge, and everything was going good till I ran out of Tape. You can click the pic to make it bigger.
The first picture is front of the book purse, It says Not Your Average Thug by Leehom Wang. Sometimes, he sings Chinese Hip Hop and R&B. But, he grew up in America. So, he knows his English. (It is not a book, but a song, if you have not heard it, you should listen to it, the song is really good and he sings it just right) http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c187/needapicnow/th_A013.jpg
The third picture is the review of the book (which is actually some words from the song). It says No Rolex on my Wrist, or Platinum on my chest, cause I don't need that sh to impress, But y' all don't get it twisted, I got love for the ghetto, Tho I'm not your Average Thug http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c187/needapicnow/th_A015.jpg
The fourth picture is the sides of the book purse, it is suppose to look like pages.
They remind me of Sushi, even though I do not eat it, lol. Anyway, this was my first one that I made, I did not post it with the others becuase I could not find it, but I just did find it in my Wal-mart folder where I have my pictures I need developed, lol.
I've been making these and having so much fun with them. I mean once people found out what they were, it was more aww, that is so cute. I would love to sell these. But, I do not know. I mean they are so quick to make. And I use the Whiplash (I think that is what it is called) stitch, lol. I use that because that way the stitch can be made on purpose and go with the design.
The last two pictures is when I was thinking of tissue and thought that be neat to get money out that way when I had first thought about doing this, but the others are my udpated verson to get money out quicker.
Sorry for posting late, I forgot to put the Wand Cozy PinkWinterGirl made me also, so when I have time will post it. In the picture is a Cup Cozy she Crocheted and A book that she made for me to put about Movies in. I plan to use the Wand Cozy to the movies, see I can hide my Candy Bar in it, so I be using it for Christmas, lol
I am going to be pimp in the new hoodie, lol, I can't wait to show it off this week, I am going to wear it tommorow for the whole world to show, I even have a Grumpy wristband, I have some blue bangles, I made, I am going to be rocked out tommorow with this hoodie, lol. I will try to get better pics, the hoodie is so shiny, lol. But she did Fabric Paint Silver Clouds, She seem to have put on all the studs herself on there and a Grumpy Bear Cross Stitch, I had put on there that I like Carebears and Grumpy is my Favorite, I am having Finals this week, so the hoodie fits it, lol:
My partner saids she has received, she said she liked having things that she can wear and use. So, I bought a scarf, I know, I did not have the time to crochet it, like I thought I did, and I put on there a favorite quote that she liked "Wiggle Your Big Toe" by Kill Bill, I figured a scarf would come in handy since Winter can be cold in New York, I think and I made a wallet with another favorite quote on there, and it is "Savvy" from Pirates of the Carribean, and then I made her a Popcorn Stuffie. So now she has a Movie themed scarf and wallet she can wear in style going to the movies, and a Popcorn Stuffie to cuddle with, while she watching a movie at home. The pics:
Edit: The Red circular thing on the scarf is the lips, sorry did not get a good picture of that, saying that quote. I made the wallet and stuffie, just not the scarf, I just embellished it instead.
