1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Notebook & Covers - True Blood - Twilight - Repo on: October 17, 2009 12:44:38 PM
So...I posted here some months ago with a sketch book I did for a friend out of a Harry Potter book...and I've made some more since then.
I haven't made any more Harry Potter things...but I've made some Twilight, New Moon and True Blood things Smiley

First, as I put in my Etsy listings...no books were harmed in the making of these Smiley

This is the first one I did...I made it for a friends niece for her birthday. She's a huge Twilight/Edward/Carlisle fan Smiley





I've made about 3 Twilight ones in total. Each one I tend to use different quotes from the book -






Here is my lone New Moon one...no one has bought poor Jacob. lol






I then decided to make some note book covers...these ones hold regular 3 ring paper -






And here is an Eric Northman one -



I had a girl order a custom one...dog themed - This one was made for A5 paper - It's about the size of the first Twilight notebooks I made.





Now to start making more, because I have a craft fair coming up around Thanksgiving. Smiley
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Harry Potter Sketchbook on: January 29, 2009 12:15:45 PM
This was a Christmas present for a friend.
She loves to draw and she loves Harry Potter...so I figured this would be perfect.
It only took me a few hours to put it together. Mainly, I had to wait for glue to dry and then cut the paper to the right size.
I put the rings on it, so she could refill it with more paper or use it for something else once she's done sketching in it. Smiley
I used a Harry Potter book that was somewhat falling apart. So I don't feel as bad for doing it. But it was still hard for me to do this to a book.
I have found out a better way of doing it since.
I used Packaging tape on the front and back covers, because I didn't have anything else I could use at the time.

Front cover -


Inside front cover, I decorated it with some pieces that I cut off of some scrapbooking paper I had -


Inside back cover, I did the same thing to it that I did to the inside front cover -


Back cover -


And she loved it Cheesy
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Why So Serious? Joker purse on: January 28, 2009 08:51:32 PM
So...I found this t-shirt at Wal-Mart. Sadly they only sell it in white...white and I don't get along, but I got it anyway. I figured I'd make myself a bag/purse.

So a couple weeks ago, I finally figured out how I wanted to make it.

I used purple, black and green corduroy pieces, recycled from corduroy pants.
I used some striped fabric on the inside...and also used pockets from some corduroy pants.

And this is how it turned out -







You can't really see it, but the inside pocket also has a side pocket. Smiley
The strap is half green, half black. I wanted to use purple, but I didn't have a long enough strip left over.
I love it...and I've used it everyday since I finished it Cheesy
4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / T-shirt quilt/blanket on: July 19, 2008 12:19:07 PM
I hope this is the right area for this Smiley

I made this quilt/blanket using pictures from t-shirts.
I was originally gonna make this for my sister-in-laws birthday...but that has since passed and it wasn't finished yet.
So, it's gonna be her christmas present. Smiley

Don't mind the cat Tongue



I think the part that takes the longest is finding the shirts to use. I found anything I could that had something she liked on it. I even threw a cheerleader shirt in there because she was one in high school. Although it has my brothers  high school mascot on it. Cheesy
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My first messenger bag - Batman and Robin themed on: July 18, 2008 08:53:23 PM
I have always wanted to make a messenger type bag. For some reason I thought they'd be too hard. I was wrong Smiley

The picture on the front is from a kids t-shirt -


The sides have some left over Batman and Robin fabric from another project -


Pockets under the flap -


The inside pocket is also from a kids t-shirt -


I also stitched around the flap and the top of the opening in yellow.

The corduroy...I found at at a local thrift shop.
Does anyone know where I can find more?

I love how it turned out. Much better than I thought it would, that's for sure.
Unfortunately, I don't be keeping it.
Someday, I'll make one that's just for me Smiley
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Can I get some opinions....necklaces on: May 24, 2008 01:19:08 PM



Sorry that the pictures suck...the camera died shortly after the pictures were taken. booo

I guess...I'm just curious if these are worth attempting to sell. My dad and I do a craft bazarre each year around Christmas time...just trying to find some new things to make.
I tried to make them like rosaries are made...not exactly the same, but it came from that idea....
Not to sure that I like them, entirely, though...

What do you think ?
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Star Wars Hoodie! on: May 24, 2008 01:09:30 PM
So...I found a retro Star Wars sheet set at the local thrift shop a bit ago. And I knew right away I wanted to make a hoodie out of it.
It's gonna be my nephews birthday present. He'll be 7. He loves Star Wars, so it's perfect Smiley




I used a pattern, but ended up changing the pockets.
This pattern also didn't give me enough room to fold the fabric over for a clean seam. But I'll know next time to add a tad bit more fabric so I can do that.
The pockets they wanted to be on the inside of the hoodie, but I thought they'd look better on the outside, especially since I cut them with the ships on them.
Darth Vader was the only one that would work for a back picture.
I messed up on the hood. The picture isn't the way I thought it was gonna be.
But, oh well...it's for a soon to be 7 year old...he won't notice. He'll just be excited that it's Star Wars Smiley

A year or so ago, I only decorated a hoodie up for him. It had spiderman on it...I like this better.

All hand sewn as well Smiley

And only my third time using a zipper Cheesy
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / First Diaper cake on: May 24, 2008 01:04:21 PM
So...after seeing them around and then coming here and seeing how everyone made them, I had to make one for this girl I know. Smiley
Her baby shower is tomorrow...can't wait to see if she likes it Smiley







I wasn't sure how to do the bottom ring, so I ended up using that craft ring that you get in the fake flower section on the inside of the diapers to keep it together, and then one of those tin plates that you usually see around christmas time.
It's all I have at the moment. Next time I'll figure out something better Smiley
I filled the bottom with a couple fleece blankets, some socks, baby nail clippers, baby wash clothes....then I put a piece of cardboard on top of that and put the next couple layers on. I also put one of the blankets over the cardboard. You can still see it, but it's better than it just being there.

I made the pacifier and teether holders.

The duck is, actually, from Easter. Tongue
The one I really wanted, because I knew the girl would get a kick out of it, was gone by the time I went back to the store. It was a fat chick. I have one myself and couldn't part with it.
But I love the duck we got instead.

Besides that, we have a bag of stuff for the baby. Mostly the stuff that you really need, like baby powder, baby soap, shampoo, wipes...etc...and a couple more blankets, since you can never really have too many with a baby Tongue
My mom crocheted a baby blanket as well.
And we also have a bag of some goodies just for the new mom Smiley

Wish I could disguise it so she couldn't see what it was until it came time to open the stuff.
Now watch...someone else will have a diaper cake as well.

And I think my diaper cake should count for their raffle thing. You're suppose to bring a bag of diapers to be entered to win a prize. Besides, the rest of the diapers I put in the bag as well Tongue
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pants with d-rings and fabric on: February 11, 2007 09:20:57 PM
Not sure what to title this Smiley

Just thought I'd show off these pants that I somewhat re-did.








I cut the slit in the pant legs. It ends, depending on your height, right below the knees.
I folded over the edges and sewed that up.
I then made holes with an exacto-knife (sp?). I sewed the yellow around the holes by hand. Otherwise the holes didn't hold up. And they tend to frew a lot once washed.

I was inspired by a pair of old pants I had gotten years ago. Which only had the slit with the lacing...and inspired a bit by bondage pants and by a skirt this girl I know made...

I found that greenish/blackish fabric at a local fabric store a couple years ago. And it just sat there until I decided to do this.
This is the second pair of pants I've done this too with that fabric.

It took awhile, mostly with the holes...but I like the results Smiley


Time to experiment on another pair of pants Smiley
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / T-shirts in to bags... on: August 20, 2005 08:36:31 PM
This all started because I had some shirts, that either were now too big for me...or I loved the picture, but couldn't wear the shirt anymore, due to it being practically worn out...

I thought that they'd make neat bags...My first ones turned out somewhat big....mostly because I thought I had to use the whole picture...

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v102/CDChyld/IndianaJbagfront1.jpg

If no one claims this one soon, I may just keep it for myself...although I've already made two for myself.


And I also make these smaller sized ones -

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v102/CDChyld/Candyland.jpg
Currently the only one i have online of this one....


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v102/CDChyld/harrypottercomplete.jpg


Once I started doing them, they became easy to do.

If there is enough fabric..and there usually is, I use the back of the shirt for the body of the bag.

I line the bag with some other fabric, for added support.
And there we go...t-shirt bags Smiley

So now, I'm always looking when I go to thrift stores for cool looking shirts Smiley
