This is about my 5th or 6th wallet I've made out of a vintage Playboy, but it's the first one i've remembered to take pictures of, and also my favorite.  For the last couple wallets I used the packing tape tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=9299.0

But on this one, I decided to sew it, in the hopes of it being sturdier.  

I hope you like it!
12  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / my super awesome tiled colorful crazy bedroom wall on: February 08, 2007 01:35:36 AM
so i JUST moved... and painting my last apartment was such a pain in the bum (let's just say i started it the week i moved in and finished it seven months later Smiley) i wasn't anxious to do it again.  soooo... enter my super awesome idea.  paperaddict.com, site of many reasonably priced awesome 12x12 scrapbooking papers. a little strategic placing (making sure that similar colors and similar patterns weren't too close, yes, i AM that anal) and voila!  my wall!  i totally love it.  i have full mirrored closet doors across from it so when i look in the mirror it's my backdrop.  this was a fairly cheap super easy super awesome way of jazzing up my boring white wall.

13  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / crochet-a-day super fly hat on: February 08, 2007 01:32:48 AM
the minute i saw this hat in the crochet a day calender i knew it would be perfect for my friend dee.  it's kind of like the ones that are in style now, but a bit.. floppier, and therefore more easily molded.  she totally loves it.  she likes to wear it the way she's wearing it in the picture. i asked her "dee, can't you only see out of one eye when you wear it that way?" and she was all "yeah, but i look COOL!"  go figure. Smiley

14  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / smack pappy z... on: February 08, 2007 01:30:38 AM
my friend zach has dubbed himself smack pappy z... it's his rap name Smiley

and he's been asking me for a t-shirt of it forever, and i've been dreading doing it, because he wanted it in the intricate old english font that some rappers use and, well... so many little pieces!! but i bit the bullet, cut out all the letters, ironed THAT down, and THEN cut out each little piece, meticulously ironing it down.  it took awhile, but... i think it was totally worth it. Smiley

15  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / i made me a big 'ol hobo bag... on: February 08, 2007 01:26:08 AM
and boy do i love it.  i've been looking for this pattern FOREVER, and i was so super excited when i found it here on beautiful wonderful amazing craftster.  

i got this corduroy super on sale at joann's - 70% off!!! i love it so.  and it's humongous, so it holds my computer if i want, and tons of stuff in the meantime.  and my favorite secret hidden feature... the outside pocket, instead of installing a magnetic snap cause i only had silver and this bag would look better with gold... i sewed a small magnet into both the front of the bag and the front of the pocket.  invisible attraction!!


it's huuuuge.  and with a super long strap too.  i modeled the size after a bag i got in paris.


bag beauty shot!!
16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / my pretty red flowered jordy... with kanzashi pin! on: February 08, 2007 01:22:55 AM
ii made this bag for my friend dee.  i thought the fabric was so pretty, and i was excited that i found it's inverse to line it with.  it's got a magnetic snap inside but the spaces are big enough on either side that she doesn't have to even open it to get her stuff out.

AND the flower... this is the FIRST time i've done a kanzashi flower... i kind of cheated a little, since i didn't have starch, and i used glue to hold the petals together while i was folding. but it worked!  it turned out great, and it's on a pin so she can take it off the bag if she likes.  yay for my first jordy bag!!



(the flower looks a little smooshed cause she's been using the purse so much!!)
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / i made a shirt!!!! that i would actually wear!!!! on: February 08, 2007 01:18:38 AM
i cannot tell you guys how excited this makes me.  this is my first finished garment that i would actually wear... and already have!!! it's from the built by wendy pattern, #4111.  i got the fabric super on sale at joann's in the juvenille apparel section.  i so love the way it turned out.  it miraculously fits me perfectly (ok, after a little bit of bring it in at the waist to make me a sexy mer) and i love the little heart buttons (that i thought would be too cutesy but turned out great.)  i know there are two pictures of me in almost the same pose, but... i made a shirt!!! that i can wear!!!!


18  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / my best shirt so far... coleco vision!!!! on: December 12, 2006 10:13:03 AM
so my friend sean requested a coleco vision shirt - he remembered it so fondly from his childhood.  but the text is printed in a rainbow gradient!! what to do???


so... i spent, like, HOURS getting the blending the paint to get the gradient perfect.  i'm so very very proud of it.  


ta-da!

19  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / how ought i make this into a stencil? help, por favor on: October 03, 2006 09:04:41 PM
so i'd like to make this into a stencil, because they work sooo much better than iron ons.



i'll need to do the black and then the color.  so do i need to do two separate stencils? which parts do i cut out of each one?  i'm having trouble wrapping my brain around this one.

thanks for the help, guys Smiley
