1  Little netbook case in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by beatlejessie on: May 09, 2011 06:44:07 PM
I got a new netbook a few weeks ago, and knew I needed a case for when I throw it in my bag.  I am working on a shoulder bag, and used my leftover material to do a case.  No pattern, and I'm pretty happy with how well it turned out!!


All closed up- I figured an envelope-type case would be easiest to construct.


All cozy and safe!


Peeking out!

I've been in a brain funk/creative slump lately, so it was nice to get inspired and creative enough to do this!

My package came today!!!  All I can say is ZOMG HATS!!  (Which was what I'd asked for- I'm covering up a bit of hair loss from my last round of radiation)



The first 3 awesome hats, and half of the two sets of little clippy accessories- they're so pretty!  And sparkly!!

And my favorite, I think it looks like Elle's hat from "Legally Blonde" Cheesy


(Ignore the wonky smile, please- stupid surgery!)

Thanks so much, Shayneblate!!  Tamalama, I'm hoping you will get your box by Friday or Saturday- sorry for having to send a bit late.

Shayne- are you out of the hospital now?  I hope everyone in our swap is doing reasonably well!! *sends hugs to all*

So, I had to drop out of this swap because I had to start another round of radiation treatments Tongue  But today when I got home, there was a little package waiting in my mailbox!!



haroldlovesmaude made me a Lil Dylan to cheer me up!!!  He is adorable!!!  And also very timely, since I finished up my treatments this past Tuesday Smiley

Thanks so much!!!!!

Ok, I just found this thread and it is SO COOL.  Everyone's art is gorgeous!  So here is my contribution:



Designed by me (with execution by my best friend).  It's on my lower back (right side), and is a little less than 2 inches across and a little more than 2 inches tall.  I've had it for... wow, 7 years now!  This thread has got me thinking about getting another one, though....

5  Patchy-sort of bag :) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by beatlejessie on: October 23, 2010 11:53:45 AM
Just finished the other half of Simplicity pattern 2396 - I am SO happy with how this turned out, even if the sides do not quite line up exactly right Cheesy  I searched all over for O-rings to attach the straps, but was unable to find them anywhere (even online!) so I just used D-rings instead.  If I do make this pattern again, I think I will lengthen the straps- they are a little shorter than I'd like, but other than that I am loving this bag!!

 

(Not-quite-matchy-sides!)

It is huge!  I think this will be great for traveling- lots of room for everything!

6  New bag :) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by beatlejessie on: October 16, 2010 06:39:24 PM
I got this Simplicity pattern (2396) a few weeks ago, and have been itching to try it out!



The outer fabric is a bit thicker and heavier, which I think will wear well for being a purse.  I found this nice subtle pattern for the lining, and I think it works well:



First time using fusible interfacing- it is great stuff!  Just started cutting out pieces for the other bag that goes with the pattern- apparently, I am on a bag binge Cheesy

My box came today!  I hurried home from work, then hurried to the post office to pick it up!!!

First up: A cool painting that I will have to make sure to hide if River ever comes over...



Next, a cool use of an old keyboard....



Hmmm, a tiny box...



With a Kaylee bracelet inside!!



And finally:



This is kind of poignant for me, since tomorrow is the one-year anniversary of finding out I had cancer- I went though 2 surgeries and 6 weeks of radiation and am currently cancer-free, so I FEEL like a big damn hero!!

Thanks so much KT!!

9  First freezer paper stencil! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by beatlejessie on: September 06, 2010 01:59:13 PM
I have seen so many of the amazing projects you all have done with freezer paper stencils, and decided to give it a try!  I had this little canvas bag which someone had given me, and since it is pink, there was only one thing I could put on there- my sorority letters Smiley



Cutting out all of the bits of the letters was HARD (though I was amazed at how well the paper stood up to the exacto knife!) and I am SO PLEASED with how this came out.  Thanks for all the inspiration, and the knowledge to tackle a new craft!

10  Skirt becomes a shirt! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by beatlejessie on: August 22, 2010 02:12:17 PM
I've had this wrap-around skirt in my closet for a few years now- I wore it once or twice, but it is a bit small now, and just taking up space.  I found this great sewing/recrafting blog "http://newdressaday.wordpress.com/" this week, and I was inspired to turn the skirt into something wearable.


(There are supposed to be ties over on the right- I cut them off before I took the 'before' pic!)

I took off the ties, and hand-stitched the bits I'd had to seam-ripper.  I also removed one of the inside buttons, and stitched up the old buttonhole.  The biggest effort was figuring out how to close up the back- I had one button left, but the rest was hanging open.  So, I put in a zipper to keep it closed.



I only had a black zipper on hand, but when the button is closed you can't even see it!

I took in the sides, then used the ties to make straps, and tah-dah!
