Cork is a great idea! That was the most frustrating part...making the tiny wings and then getting them to stick inside the bead.
3082  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / THE GOLDEN SNITCH!! earrings on: March 06, 2010 12:18:41 AM
This project was inspired by a recent post...I tried to search for you but the search feature isn't working right now! Thanks for the inspiration, though Smiley

My best friend and I are huge Harry Potter fans, and she's even in a Quidditch league at her college (yes, it's very confusing, but cool! apparently every part of the game is assigned to a person, even being a Bludger or a Snitch!). I made these for her birthday.

These were a PAIN IN THE TUSH!!! The idea definitely changed as the project progressed.

I like to think of them as abstract.

BONUS! A fun little gift box I made for them out of a plastic pin box from a sewing kit and a paper measuring tape.


Thanks for looking! And thanks again for the inspiration.

Love everyone's ideas of making the paper beads! They are so unique, and best of all, free! I sat down and made a load of them one afternoon and then came up with these for a friend who loves unique jewelry.

The colors are much brighter in real life. I wanted to make some jewelry out of these that looked sophisticated and not just like I made it out of paper. I got the idea to use the fishing line to make the beads seem to "float" on top of each other in an interesting way.

A close-up. It turned out decently! I experimented with different ways of looping the line to make each earring different.

In action! I think they probably look better from far away, and in a less blurry picture. Anyway, I hope my friend liked them.

Thanks for looking!
3084  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Silky tie wallets on: March 05, 2010 11:55:57 PM
Aren't ties a weird fashion statement? Maybe the men's equivalent of high heels...we force ourselves to walk on the balls of our feet and they tie a noose around their necks every day. I don't know. Anyways, they are good for other things too.

These are some cool little wallets made out of silk ties!

Yellow paisley print and dark blue with tiny apples. I didn't put a closure on them since the interfacing makes them stiff enough to stay closed on their own (and I couldn't think of a good solution after a few weeks of thought!).

Lining is some turquoise and black/white plaid cotton from stash. I think the colors complement each other really well!

I made these for some friends who enjoy crafty/recycled stuff. Hope they enjoyed them.

Thanks for looking!
3085  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Crocodile tears! on: March 05, 2010 11:33:00 PM
My first attempt at constructing a purse from scratch! I call it the Crocodile Tears purse.

I was inspired by finding the little stick on metallic water drops on clearance. The material was a vinyl remnant from JoAnn's and some felt. Handle is braided strips of the same vinyl.

Design close-up

Mr. Croc is made of felt and machine-stitched onto the material!


Lined with iron-on interfacing and a black and white plaid material from my stash.

Charm close-up

I love purse charms, so I added one made from some junk I had lying around.

It's a bit lumpy and bumpy, but I was pleased with it for my first try! I was going for that mini-bowler bag effect.

Hope you enjoy!

Beautiful! Absolutely LOVE the color. It goes great with the tile. And the sink is so modern and wonderful. Hitting this rocks!

Looks like they actually work better than the real thing! The water is gone out of mine after about a day or two (despite the claim of up to two weeks) even after watering the plants fully right before putting them in...
