21  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / recycled leather tote bag! on: August 09, 2012 12:26:01 PM
so i've been really into making bags lately. this little market tote is made from a really light canvas material. the peace sign  and the braided straps are made from and old leather chair! it's 15x14x6 so it's a nice good size. i love it!

22  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / nasty old suitcase gets a makeover!! pic heavy!! on: August 07, 2012 05:21:07 PM
So my bf and I have been hitting up yard sales a lot lately and i fell in love with this old suitcase. it was super nasty on the inside and smelled like an old person times 12348746531 but i couldn't say no. so i tore it apart and relined it with a red flower quilted cotton. and i loooove it now even more!! my little sister is going to use it at her wedding to hold cards people bring them  Smiley

23  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A coozie and a beanie!! summer and winter fun! on: July 31, 2012 01:06:31 PM
still trying to thin out my stash so I made some fun things!

First is a neat little can coozie! perfect for keeping your hands warn and dry!


and next is a slouchy beanie! I started to use this http://www.caron.com/vickiehowell/patterns/urban_jungle/urban_jungle.html pattern but didn't really like how it was coming out so I undid it and kind of winged it. I kept the general concept the same but changed it a bit as I went. For example smaller bobbles and band.


C&C welcome!!

Wow, those look comfy and quick to make, I never got to make crochet socks, oddly enough, but I definitely should!
The picture problem has already sorted itself out, it seems, but for the future: After you rotate a picture, it can take a while before the system gets all the new information right. So, after a while, the picture will appear the way you rotated it with the right proportions.

AAAhh! thank you! I was starting to feel like I was crazy or something. hahaha

thank you for the nice comments everyone!!

thanks guys! I really like the simplicity of it too. like it's just a tank top but adding lace makes it feel so much fancier! haha
26  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / sequin heart makeup bag! on: July 20, 2012 12:23:06 PM
I have had this red quilted fabric for a while and didn't know what to do with it. I finally decided to make it into a bag since it gives it a nice sturdy shape but not too stiff. It measures 8x7x2 and the bottom corners are boxed.
I hand sewed on a bunch of sequins into the shape of a heart!



The outside is gray jersey and the red is on the inside


I think it's pretty darn cute.
C&C welcome

27  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / cupcake with sprinkles! on: July 20, 2012 12:18:32 PM
I have been seeing crocheted cupcake hats for a while and finally got around to making one. I just kind of winged it. I definitely messed up and had to frog it a few times but I finally got it! and now i know what i'll want to change next time. nonetheless, i still love it and think it turned out pretty darn good!


I hand sewed a bunch of colorful bugle beads (i think that's what they are called) on the top o act like shiny little sprinkles!

C&C welcome!!

28  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / crochet slipper socks! on: July 16, 2012 04:37:11 PM
i whipped these bad boys up a couple nights ago. i made the pink ones first and loved them so much i decided to make another pair. the pattern isn't really a patern at all. i just kind of winged it and tried it on as i went so there was definitely a lot of frogging haha but i think i have it figured out now! woot!


**can anyone help me? if i upload this picture anywhere it keeps putting it upside down. even if i correct it. wtf??**
C&C welcome
