We have a new featured member: the fabulous Diver!  Heer are some of the fabulous projects Diver's posted on the PBW board:









When and why did you begin making purses, bags, and wallets?

I started making purses about 10 years ago, my first project was a patchwork corduroy bag without a pattern. I didn't even make a lining. I constructed most of my bags without patterns for a long time. Once I found craftster, I followed a few tutorials (The Jordy Bag square bottom purse) and applied my newfound skills to my pattern free purse making.


How long have you been sewing?  

My mother taught me how to hand sew when I was younger, but I didn't start using a machine until about 12 years ago


What type of sewing machine do you have?

I have a Bernina Artista and I love it!



Do you have any tips for anyone looking to make their first bag?

Find a tutorial on craftster and keep trying


What other sewing projects have you tackled?

I've made 2 crib quilts, a variety of nursery items for my son. Infant and children's clothing, adult's clothing, kitchen accessories, curtains.


What other crafts do you enjoy?

Tie dye, hair accessories, bead and wire jewelry.


What's your favorite aspect of Craftster?
The tutorials of course!


What's your favorite PBW project on Craftster that you've posted?

My best Plaid Spring Purse




What's your favorite project on another board that you've posted?

Electric Guitar turned coat rack. It was heavy and required a little handywork from the hubs, but it worked.





What's your favorite PBW project on Craftster that someone else has posted?

Definitely the Jordy bag.

14  Environmentally-Friendly and HypoAllergenic Nutlace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by kaz814 on: April 01, 2014 05:05:08 AM
So with all the cold, snowy weather we've been having lately, I had the urge to make something pretty and spring-like.

After checking the coming trends, I settled on one focus: nuts.  Unfortunately, I'm a teacher and with all the peanut allergies, I couldn't wear a nut to school.  However, I found a solution: a packing peanut.

Using 3 strands of turquoise embroidery floss and some beads and stones I had squirreled away, I centered the peanut in the place of honor.  I think it turned out great, and will definitely be something that will get noticed!

What do you think?




and a closer, money shot:

16  Re: 2013 Christmas Tree Along! in Winter Holidays by kaz814 on: December 01, 2013 03:37:17 PM
I used to have an artificial tree, but my rabbit decided the wire made a good teeth tester and ... yeah.  So a new tree for this year.  I decided on a real tree and looked all over for a small one (since my house is teensy and I wanted it out of range of rabbit teeth).  After searching and not finding what I wanted, I bought a regular sized tree, had them cut it in half, got the boughs for decoration and a small tree.  Cheesy  I was just lucky that the trees were oddly affordable!


I've decorated it in Craftster chic.  75% are ornaments I've received in swaps, either hand made or purchased for me, with the last quarter being sentimental favorites I just can't not put up!  You can also see the stocking I received last year in the Stocking swap and the garland I got the year before in the Stocking swap. Cheesy




And nighttime:

17  Re: Holiday Ornament ATC Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by kaz814 on: November 23, 2013 01:30:49 PM
I received from vincentvanbuck and stellou!


vincentvanbuck needlefelted a nativity scene for me - I simply adore it!  The colors are vibrant (and perfect with the blue and yellow) and the scene is awesome.  I cannot believe this was his first venture into needlefelting.







and stellou used my Christmas tree theme and my doors theme to make two gorgeous ATCs.

The background of the tree is burlap with the tree embroidered on, and the door has real hardware!  And a wee little key!




Thank you both SO much!

I've received from Helcura and kosmicgirl!


From Helcura ...


A fabulous nature scene, complete with adorable fox!




and the back with a very cool pinwheel:





And a gorgeous stained "glass" which I adore.  The colors are amazing.




And the back:  (Funny thing, my very first ornament I got when I was a baby looked very similar!  Love it!)






And from kosmicgirl:


She went with my nativity scene and drew or painted (I think) the wisemen.  I am in awe of her skills.:




and the back with the star:





Thank you both SO SO much!  They are going to look amazing on my tree!

19  RRR Challenge: Holiday Edition in Reusing/Recycling/Recrafting: Challenge Entries by kaz814 on: November 01, 2013 04:54:50 PM

It's beginning to be that time of year again!  And this time, the Reusing, Recycling and Recrafting Board has a challenge for YOU.  What sort of holiday decorations (Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Yule, New Year's, etc.) can you create from recycled materials?

To be eligible, the final project should be at least 50% recycled.   More reused items=better!  Let's save the earth while we make our homes prettier!   Not only will we leave a beautiful world to our children, but we might inspire others to do the same.  (Please note, we're on the honor system with this.  I won't be checking, but the whole point is reusing and recycling!)


Here are the details for the challenge:

During the week of December 1st through December 7th (until 11:59 pm, Eastern) you can post pictures of your entry. As it's impossible to know if your entry is 100% original, if you're inspired by someone else's project, please give that person a shout out!

Voting will open on December 8th and run for one week.  Voting will take place right here and the first place winner (US or non-US) will get Eco-Craft: Recycle Recraft Restyle by Susan Wasinger.





TO ENTER DURING THE WEEK OF DECEMBER 1-7, START A NEW THREAD ON THE Reusing, Recycling, Recrafting: CHALLENGE ENTRIES BOARD BY CLICKING ON "NEW TOPIC" AND UPLOADING YOUR PICTURES! GOOD LUCK!

If you have questions, feel free to ask them here! Smiley

20  RRR Craftalong in REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING by kaz814 on: October 15, 2013 02:37:18 PM

There has been some discussion on the FOC board (thanks, bookstorebabe and Onyxnox) about starting up a Reusing/Recycling/Recrafting craftalong, so here it is!

The idea is that each month, we'll have a reused/repurposed/recycled item that we'll use in our crafting or we'll have a theme around which you can recycle anything your heart desires!  Crafts can be posted in this thread and on the board they'd usually go under so everyone can share in the recrafting goodness!  



So who's in?
