1  Re: Show Off Your Hair--Dyed, Cut, or Styled by Yourself! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by fc4real on: September 02, 2010 02:38:59 AM
I had a LONG back story typed out, lucky for yaw I accidentally deleted it. LMAO

Basically This was me for about 5 years:








needed to get my hair back healthy, was letting it grow out to my natural "dark blonde-brown mix" til I just couldn't take it anymore, decided to try to use a boxed "hair color removal" kit from walmart. and I got this:









That was the first time I ever trying bleaching my hair, and of course fried it beyond repair, so I had a friend come in to help with the fried parts, and she wound up taking around 3 foot off til I got this:







I was shocked when I first saw it, I wasn't sure how an old fuddy-duddy like myself was gonna pull off such a drastic hair color in my small southern town, but I have been getting compliments from some very nice strangers. LOL.So yeah, it has been figuratively, and well as literally growing on me. I wonder how hard it would be to replicate this on purpose?  hmmmm

2  Needed a pick-me-up, and a new purse always does it for me. (pic heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by fc4real on: July 24, 2010 01:26:41 PM
I had a friend that was getting ready for a yard sale, and had some nice nurse scrub tops for sale. I confiscated a couple and knew when I saw this pink paisley fabric I *HAD* to make a purse with it! The lining was some fabric I have had for a bit, and just couldn't wait to use! I love the smiling skully!!

The basic purse design (other than flap, I added that last minute) and coin and wallet designs were found online, I just put them together with style. LOL

  the outer shell completed, starting to work on the lining. I have made this pattern before, but I had never done it with more than one fabric. So I was thrilled when the ribbon and lower fabric turned out so well.

Lining with zippered pocket.

Liner, and flap sewn on.

Wallet, opened

wallet closed

completed coin purse.

outside of coin purse

Completed purse and wallet. I hadn't decided to make the coin purse when I took this pic. LOL. I have decided as well that I need to make a larger zippered purse for my papers and stuff I tend to shove in there.

I absolutely love this. it took me almost as long to rip ALLLL the seams out of the scrub as it did to actually sew this together. LOL Those things are very sturdily put together, I must say.

Thank you everyone for looking Cheesy
