21  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Preserve a Bird Nest? on: February 09, 2007 08:40:46 AM
During the last ice we had, a tree in my front yard lost a ton of branches. On one of these brances was a teeny tiny, but perfectly made bird nest. I saved it, but I want to know how to preserve it better? Is there like a spray or something that would be clear that would help it to keep it's shape? I don't quite know what I plan to do with it, but I'm going to do something, and I would hate for it to fall apart. Any ideas would be appreciated-thanks!

I originally posted this on the wrong board....sorry!

23  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Harley-Davidson Purse (4 pictures) on: October 17, 2006 11:21:51 AM
My first purse!  Smiley

I made this one using the instructions in the Generation-T book. It's made from two Harley shirts that didn't fit me. I think it came out pretty good-I had some trouble stitching the fronts together, because it didn't want to go in my sewing machine near the bottom, and then I sewed the corners together Undecided, so I had to rip out some and hand sew it, but other than that...it was pretty easy. Oh, and the hole to carry it isn't as small as it looks in the pictures, I can wear it on my shoulder fine.

Thanks for looking!

24  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Birthday Horse-Yay! on: August 11, 2006 03:01:40 PM
So...due to lack of money, I have decided all my friends get plushies for their birthdays. I made my friend Sarah a horse for her 21st birthday tomorrow. It didn't quite turn out how I wanted...nothing ever does, but I'm still really proud of the way this turned out. I only wish the back legs weren't sticking out...it's supposed to be a standing horse, but I guess a sitting horse is good too. Also...those are some major pec muscles!! Hee hee...don't know what happened there. Anyway, the pattern is from the book he's sitting in front of, but I didn't really get the instructions, so I winged putting him together. Enjoy.  Grin

26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / HSUS Tube Top (3 pics) *better size now* on: August 04, 2006 11:46:50 AM
I made another tube top. I figure I'm going to need one or two when I get my inner bicep tattoo. I don't want any sleeves rubbing that area! This one is made from a Humane Society of the U.S. T-shirt. I love how perfectly the picture fits over the boobs, so I don't have to wear a bra!  Grin

Front-it's really hard to take a pic of the front of your body by yourself!

27  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Happy Sun on: July 29, 2006 12:59:05 PM
I had a yellow "scarf" that was more like just a piece of fabric lying around, so I made a sun. It had to be all handmade because my sewing maching didn't like 3 layers of that thick material. It's not as tight as I would have liked, but I got impatient and didn't make my stitches very close. Plus....he's pretty lopsided, but I guess the sun isn't perfectly round either.  Wink

28  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Ahh!! The Eyeless Sock Monster! on: July 04, 2006 03:02:44 PM
I got the Stupid Sock Creatures book from the library and this is my first creation from it. I used a pretty ugly and plain pair of socks, but I wanted to see if I could do it. I think this guy came out pretty good. I don't have buttons (can you believe it? They have disappeared) so he probably won't have eyes for awhile. Next time, I'm using better socks!

29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Wolf Tube on: May 20, 2006 09:52:43 PM
Hello. This is only my 2nd project post...I'm a little nervous.  Cry (<-nervous sweat)

This wasn't the hardest thing to do in the world. I had a long sleeved shirt with some wolves on it, a new book on reconstructing tees (Generation T by Megan Nicolay) and a desire for a new tube top. Pretty much I just cut the sleeves off, cut the neck hole off, sewed up the sides so they were a little tighter, add a hem on top, and trim the bottom to desired length. The book shows a drawstring, but this is a little on the tight side, so I left that part out. I'm pretty happy with the outcome.

30  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Froggy, Doggie, and Lizard (kind of) on: May 07, 2006 04:45:24 PM
Hi! I've been here for awhile, but I never thought I would actually post anything.  Undecided Then I needed some cute ideas for some upcoming birthdays at my work. Being broke, I thought some cute stuffies would be great. Here are the results.

First a frog-I found the pattern here: http://www.frogstore.com/frogbeanie.htm
This was my 3rd and best attempt at this one. He is now in his new home.



Next I made a dog-I made up this pattern-it's not as good-his legs went all over the place. He has a tail too, but you can't see it in the picture. Even though he's funky, I think my friend still really liked him.


These last two-the lizard an another frog, were both supposed to be frogs. They were the 1st ones made, but in the case of the lizard, I didn't add any of the darts, so I added a tail and made a lizard.


Well, there they are-my first good stuffies and my first post. Enjoy!  Smiley
