1  Swirly silver wire dangle earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by janetsjunk on: September 07, 2013 08:59:35 PM
Ok, another try at bending and shaping the wire on dangle earrings and this pair is much better.  I just love the long dangle earrings of the 80's.  I wore these ones today and loved every minute of it.  They are lightweight and pretty.

2  Halloween dangle earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by janetsjunk on: September 04, 2013 07:01:44 PM
I've been practicing my jewelry making skills and my next project was themed for Halloween.  Long dangly black/orange earrings just in time for Halloween, which is right around the corner I might add.    Grin

3  Wire Heart Dangle Earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by janetsjunk on: September 02, 2013 08:49:24 PM
Okay, so I just started making jewelry and can i just say it's my favorite craft by far now.  I've been a seamstress ever since I was a young girl but this is just amazing how much fun I'm having.  This is the first pair of earrings I've made using the wire and bending it into a shape.  Let me know what you think, I would like feedback.  I'm an earring hoarder so either I'm going to have an even larger selection of earrings for personal use soon, or I'm going to need to part ways with some of them.  LOL

4  Recycled 3 shirts into super cute rocker purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by janetsjunk on: November 14, 2010 09:28:57 PM
One T-Shirt & 2 button up shirts later and this is what I came up with.  Just like my other ruffly purse, I sewed gathered ruffles on the front.  I utilized as much fabric from the shirts as I could.  What do you think?

5  Recycled Goodwill Purse to Scrappy Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by janetsjunk on: November 11, 2010 10:13:13 PM
I found someone online that make a recycled scrap bag using strips of fabric tied into sections on one of those store bought crochet type bags.  This picture does it no justice as it's cuter in person but I think it's a cool technique I wanted to share.  Her blog tutorial is at http://ohsohappytogether.blogspot.com/2009/08/todays-tutorial-rag-bag.html.  And here is the one I whipped up this evening.

6  Sheet + 2 T-Shirts + Ribbon = 1 Cute Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by janetsjunk on: November 08, 2010 09:33:00 PM
This purse was made using brown fabric from a sheet I got last year from a friend to make a palm tree costume for my son. I also cut up two t-shirts & ribbon. I had a design in my head for the shape, cut out paper and then cut out the sheet fabric. Then cut the two t-shirts into strips. Two of the long strips were gathered to create a ruffled effect and sewn to the outside of the purse front, then ribbon at the top of the patterned t-shirt fabric. First I was going to attach some wooden recycled purse handles but ended up making loops for straps to go through and used the remainder of the 3 fabrics & braided them through to become two straps/handles for the purse. It is lined with the same brown sheet fabric as well.

7  Second attempt at apron in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by janetsjunk on: November 08, 2010 09:30:01 PM
Here is my 2nd apron using the same pants from before, just instead of one leg, I used the front of the pants with pockets.

8  Capri pants & Pillow case turned Waist Apron in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by janetsjunk on: November 04, 2010 09:16:56 PM
So I took the leg of a pair of khaki green capri pants that didn't fit anymore, a flannel pillow case in animal print I never used & some consigned ribbon and made this super cute waist apron.  It's one of many things I'm sewing for America Recycles Day at work in about a week.  Let me know what you think.  Thanks.

9  Another CD Case in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by janetsjunk on: April 15, 2010 11:29:41 PM
Heres another CD case thats a bit different in functionality and holds a whopping 8 CDs.  I used an old pair of jeans (actually same pair that I used on the last one), some extra fabric from a purse I made, a couple red buttons & some elastic to hold it closed.  I also added my JJ Janets Junk tag to the back.  I reinforced the whole thing to make it stiff using a couple cardboard cut outs from our soda 12 packs boxes.  It was the coolest thing to use and I just cut it to size and sewed it in.  Im lovin this one and am hoping to make a few more the next few days.  What do you all think?  Comments are welcomed! Smiley  Thanks.

10  CD Case in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by janetsjunk on: April 12, 2010 09:55:49 PM
I'm making some things for our Earth Day event at work in a couple weeks and this is one of the things I'm going to make a handful of for it.  It's a CD case made of old worn out jeans (only had to use one leg) and some old fabric scraps from a purse I made a while ago.  It has a velcro closure too.  The other ones I make will hold more than 4 CD's though.  I will also need to make the pockets on each page bigger so the CD's won't fall out so easily.  Enjoy!
