here's a couple more pics of the pouch.  the colour is a bit off due to the red wall in the back ground. it's more of a yellow-green  in real life. 
It's a modification of the jordy bag.

3  Re: FUNKY CLOTH PADS swap!NEW, IMPROVED! (Sign upCLOSED, Mail by June 14th) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by cottoncandymandy on: June 20, 2005 05:01:19 PM
Incidentally, this is how i fold my pads for storage and keeping them in a purse or what have you.



meaning that you fold the ends toward the middle and then do up the snaps, making a neat little bundle. 
this keeps the inside (the side you place against your skin) clean and crud free and eliminates the need for those little plastic wrappers that disposable pads come in.

Also, this is one way to deal with an away from home pad change.  Iif they're not completely soggy, you can fold them this way to keep them from getting the rest of your bag messy till you get them home to your laundry basin or basket to wash or soak them.

4  fuzzy pink yoke/mini- poncho thingy in Knitting: Completed Projects by cottoncandymandy on: April 22, 2005 05:30:28 PM
usually when i decide to knit something i don't know what it is that i'm going to end up with when i start.
I just kind of experiment.  Since i'm not very good at it, lots of things get taken apart and redone.
this is one of the experiments that worked rather well--plus it only took a few hours.

Thats a great tutorial! I really dig it a lot. I wish I could find great finds like that at the yard sales that I go to. I only find depression glass and old tae bo tapes. Undecided
And your avatir is freaking me out! How did you do that Shocked?

Thanks, glad to hear it.
as for the avatar, here's a better picture of it, if you want to see how the temporary piercing was done:

the needles (i think they were 20 guage) were pierced in at a 45 degree angle, and then laced up with black elastic, so that they were staight up and down.

6  lame chairs reupholstered in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by cottoncandymandy on: April 16, 2005 12:21:03 PM
i wish i had a before picture.  The chairs were this awful textured blue grey lumpy fabric.  The only way i could have hated them more would be if they were beige.  but i fixed that.
they were suprisingly easy to recover.  i just unscrewed the seat and back and handstitched the new fabric on top of the old.   they're much more interesting now.

that was so ridiculously simple i need to make more, in fabrics more befitting my style.
this was just a "first try" one made from some scraps that were handy.
perhaps this one will go to my sister--she's more of a hippie than i am.

how long were your corset piercings in for, and did they migrate much?  i'd heard that surface piercings are iffy at best.  i'd be interested in hearing about your experiences with them.

probably about three hours
this is not a piercing you could wear for long--hence the "temporary"
p.s.
here's a better pic of it:

10  pulp fiction coasters (not the movie) With tutorial in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by cottoncandymandy on: April 14, 2005 09:57:50 AM

http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y72/mandyology/craftster/forcraftsterandsale010.jpg

Here's how it's done:

To make one coaster you need:
Cardboard/posterboard/cardstock/or even plastic
glue
mac-tac (the clear sticky paper/shelf liner stuff)
felt or craft foam
and whatever picture you want on the coaster.  you could use something out of a magazine, or you could use photos. your favorite album covers, maybe?  the possibilities are endless.  I used postcards of the front covers of  old pulp novels.  

ok, so cut our a circle of card stock, a circle of felt, and a circle of your picture.
glue the carstock to the picture to stableize it, and make it stronger.
stick the picture, face down, to a piece of mac tac larger than your circle.  
http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y72/mandyology/craftster/coastertut.jpg

cut slits in the mac tac, all the way around, then fold them over and stick them to the back of the picture.
(i did two layers of this to make absolutely sure that no moisture would get onto the picture and ruin it)
finally, all you need to do is glue your circle of felt on the back of the coaster.
now you can be stylish when you're being anal about not leaving watermarks on your coffee table.
(please note that the table in the photo was one that was being refinished, not one i was worried about protecting  Wink )
