1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Jar of Whimsies Rd 11 on: July 31, 2012 12:24:18 PM
I appologize profusely for the lateness in posting pics (the long and the short of my excuse is I got married 2 weeks ago, we eloped, didnt really think that I was going to be that busy but we have had friends and family visiting, my step kids and the godforesaken heat in Oklahoma the past few weeks has been unbearable and totally sucks any little bit of motivation and energy you might have), OK enough with my excuses are the the pics of the jar or should I say box I got from Jennden

This awesome box with a really cool paint effect on it and it was crammed full of stuff

these awesome little polymer clay things, one is a little box and had some beads inside
and another view of all the goodies!

Well, I was just experimenting and just so happened to have my super skinny friend over and I made these:


This one I put grommets down the back and laced ribbon through it and I added some black ric rac to the bottom edge


This one I used some bigger brass grommets and made some small ties out of the edge I cut off the pillow case.

I really am not a very good seamstress, some of the edges are really crooked, but I think it turned out pretty good. Gonna try and make one for myself tonight!

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Vintage pillow case and sheet skirts! on: June 25, 2012 11:41:48 AM
OK - I am really a terrible seamstress, I get super excited about sewing something and stuff rarely turns out how I envision it, but I had this box full of vintage sheets and pillow cases, the sewing machine has been sitting out on the table for 2 weeks (from when I fixed my sons shirt) I finally said "f*ck it, im gonna sew something". So for my baby girl (OK she's 5, not a baby anymore), I made her this one


Very simple, even I knew I could handle this, just cut the closed end of the pillow case off as long as she wanted it, sewed a seem at the top, ran elasctic, sewed shut (of course I had to buy her a new shirt to go with it)
For her sister I made this one:

(I made a matching hair scarf too, just didnt get a pic) same thing, just fitted the elastic a different size

Then for me I made this one:


ignore my fattiness, I think my inner hippie is starting to come out (plan on wearing it to see the String Cheese Incident next month)
and then I whiped up this one:

I even did so good and sewed some rick-rack around the bottom edge.
