41  Re: Old CDs / AOL CDs / AOL CD Cases in What the heck can I do with THIS? by artzyfartzy on: February 28, 2006 07:00:24 AM
here's what i made with old aol cds:


I didnt nuke the cd's like some suggested ( i'm too chicken  Tongue) .. instead i just broke the cd's with a tin nipper and smoothed the edges with a dremel.  I roughed up the surface to make it look a little distressed/cracked by running the dremel sander quickly over the top.

it was a long process but very addicting!!!!

42  Re: Container Gardens in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions by artzyfartzy on: September 21, 2005 04:30:03 AM
I know this thread is kinda old - but I thought I'd post a picture of my tomato container garden:



I used Miracle Grow Soil and my hub drilled 1 inch holes in the bottom with our dremel for drainage.  I planted 1 plant of "sweet millions" salad tomatoes and 1 plant of  medium sized "celebrity girl" tomatoes and we had a great turnout.  I currently have 17 medium tomatoes ripening and at least over 40 salad tomatoes..

43  Re: Crochet me's Fleuri bag in Crochet: Completed Projects by artzyfartzy on: March 14, 2005 01:25:35 PM
A very fashionable friend asked me to make her something, as crocheted items are supposedly "big" this spring.  Out of a bunch of patterns I emailed her, she liked the Fleuri bag, and since I was bored this weekend, I made one.  I used about 2 oz of hand-me-down, so-old-it's-no-longer-made Bernat Carmen yarn, a thin worsted weight cotton yarn in a screaming red color, and a G hook.  I left off the plastic handles, and added a wrist strap; otherwise, I followed the pattern.  It came out 5 in. wide, with a 5 in. strap.  It definitely needs a zipper, and I'm debating on lining it.  My question is: for those of you who have made crocheted bags, do you line them?  If so, how do you make it look nice?


the front of the bag - the color is waaaay brighter in person

hey jennye....i'm finally done w/my poncho & starting a fleuri clutch!! i'm so excited and scared at the same time! [ about the zipper install Wink) ]  right now I'm at the point of almost finishing the front of the bag before the petals ........ i was wondering at what point did u do the wrist strap?  did u just keep crocheting after finishing the front ?..or??

im a little confused at this part too. any help would 'again' be appreciated  Grin

wow, how beautiful!!! LOVE the color...i did indeed make this bag ( i tried to take pictures a few days ago but the lighting was way off, so I have to retake again)..but i love the idea of a clutch to match!

Can i ask how do you add a zipper to a crocheted item?

Hi again JodyBoBodie... here's my poncho! i did it!!! I'm so excited Grin



I didnt have a N hook as the pattern asks for so I used a P 11 1/2mm hook instead.  It is so soft and comfy! I am already starting a pink one for my (7 yr old) daughter.  But! get this.. I went and bought a N-hook for my daughter's poncho, and when I started the neck it wouldn't go over my head! It was too tight!!!  Huh  It wouldn't go over her's either?!  So luckily I had just started and I had to rip it out and start it over with the P-hook.  Did you use an N-hook for your ponchos??? Maybe me and my daughter have really big heads! LOL ... would it matter on the type of yarn used?  for her poncho i'm using Lionbrand's baby pink something.  I just used inexpensive Red Heart for mine?

Anyways.....thanks so much for helping me out!  It was actually easier than I anticipated.   Cheesy

Hello

This is the second time I post anything I've made on Craftster.

I made this gold seedbead Necklace for my BF:s mother for her B'day. I hope she likes it, always a bit stressfull giving things that you make.





nicee jewelry! very pretty! I made a spiral necklace like this once and it was SUCH a pain and took forever!  did you have to restart your thread a few times before it was completely finished?  I had a hard time heading my thread with this particular necklace design !  that's the part I hated most! ..the end result is sooo great tho' isnt it?

Mold from: Ebay Auction
Soap: Creamy Goat's Milk MP + Cocoa Powder & Chocolate Fragrance from WSP


lisa, your soap rawks! My customers loved the little samples from the promo swap we did  Smiley  I've colored soaps with cocoa powder before and after time I had it turn white on the edges ( just like chocolate does when it ages ..know what I mean?) ~ have you had that problem at all?

Here's a few I made some time ago.  I added small glass flower beads and some silver shapes (heart & flowers) that I made from PMC.  I reinforced the shapes so if they caught on anything they wouldn't fall off.  I never had any problems.  You can find tons of peyote patterns at www.about.com in the beadwork section and also at www.bead-patterns.com (free ones).  Remember to work the ends of your threads to the middle so you don't have fraying on the edges.


ohhh i like your rings very much! i never thought of adding shapes to them!!!! i love'em! .. I usually knot my 2 ends  and add a drop of super glue to the knot to secure it?  so after the 2 sides of the ring are weaved together - you just take each end and weave to the middle then cut the remaining thread?  I guess i took the lazy route Tongue
