1  If a friend has an organ removed, you make another. Here's the cuterest uterus in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Diver on: December 17, 2015 05:37:49 PM
Made a new friend. Hit it off so amazingly well. When she had a hysterectomy a few months later, I took it as an opportunity to show off my weird crafty side. We all have that, right? Anyway, here's the cutest little uterus you ever did see.

And to top it off, I made it into a pouch, KAM Snap at the bottom opens to reveal a lovely red satin lining. And when I gave it to her, it was stuffed with shreds of red satin for one last period. Omg, I've just been dying laughing about this.

At first, I thought it was a little too weird to post here, so I posted it to reddit. But then it got the attention of a reporter from the website themighty.com And the dear gal wrote an article about me and my friend and my freaky creation.
Here's the direct link to the story http://themighty.com/2015/12/womans-makes-sweetest-and-strangest-get-well-gift-after-friends-surgery/

Thanks for letting me share it here, it was pretty exciting!

2  Rainbow brite coin purse (with frame) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Diver on: July 20, 2015 09:11:06 PM

Edit: I thought I had copy/pasted the info but I guess not, whoops!

The coin purse frame is sewn on, I drafted  my own pattern which includes a lining. I use regular fleece and a light interfacing for shape.

Love the idea about the missing antennae! Too easy not to do, thanks!

3  Rainbow Brite Girl's Dresses and bonus leggings! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Diver on: June 10, 2015 07:21:16 PM
I'm making some cute kid's clothes from my vintage fabric stash. I had a rainbow brite sheet I dug out and made a few dresses with. And added ruffles to denim looking leggings, it pairs super cute. Hope you guys enjoy!

4  Military style ACU women's purse/ messenger bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Diver on: October 29, 2014 10:35:40 AM
A friend had an idea and I went with it, decided to invest in making a prototype. I used a lightweight ACU fabric with a solid foliage green water resistant fabric for the bottom and sides. Its full of pockets and the same design as all the 80s bags I've been making. I used gun metal D-rings because that's what I had on hand, any other bags this style will have black plastic D-rings. I used a plastic tri-glide to make the adjustable strap. I also put strips of velcro on the front of the bag for badges. I've got a few more styles I'm going to test out soon.

5  More sheet bags! Care Bears and Rainbow Brite in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Diver on: October 25, 2014 07:01:13 AM
Been saving character bed sheets for quite a while now, finally putting some to good use. Today's special is Care Bears and Rainbow Brite with a Murky and Lurky patch on the front.
I also got my new custom tags in from tagtopia on etsy, I'm really pleased with how they turned out.

6  Owl hair clips in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Diver on: October 21, 2014 07:06:30 AM
I used cover buttons to make these and I'm so happy with the way they turned out. They are hand drawn and colored. I put them on hair clips, bows, headbands, and pony tail holders. I use rhinestones for the eyes.

8  Patchwork batik tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Diver on: October 09, 2014 07:02:23 AM
I'm so pleased with how it turned out. I used some batik fat quarters from my stash, some extra deep navy/charcoal pleather from the remnant bin and even some gun metal purse feet. It's my first time using the purse feet.

9  Rainbow brite bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Diver on: October 08, 2014 08:06:23 PM
I'm pretty sure the fabric was either a sheet or a curtain, but all I had of it was scraps. The bag is messenger style with an adjustable strap, inside zipper pocket in the flap, 4 pockets inside and four outside.

Another project from my bed sheet stash, this time it's smurfs!
