1  My first skirt! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by MeShellRene on: March 19, 2011 09:52:20 PM
So here's the first skirt I've ever made! It only took about an hour and a half start to finish!
I've only made bags in the past and this was pretty simple for me.

It's basically two rectangles with a pocket at the top for the elastic waist.
I think the next skirt I make I'll attempt to put in pockets.
Hope you like it!

The floral patter is browns and grays with a bit of mustard.

2  Happy Housewife in Needlework: Completed Projects by MeShellRene on: August 30, 2009 09:28:04 PM
This is an embroidery piece I did for an up coming "Labor" Day art show. I designed the pattern in Freehand on my computer then transfered it over to the fabric with graphite paper. It took me a few hours a day over a week and a half of time. I'm really pleased with the way it came out the only part I'm not happy with is the small circles at the bottom this was the first time I've attempted something so detailed. I also got the frame at a local shop and spray painted it a high gloss red to up the Kitch factor.



Hope you enjoy it!

Started with my pattern (I cut out the dots b/c I had to get it turned in for the show and ran out of time)


Making Progress


Just Finished


All Framed and ready for the art show

3  Evil is powerless if the good are unafraid... Ronald Reagan in Needlework: Completed Projects by MeShellRene on: January 09, 2009 08:55:00 PM
Here is a portrait I embroidered of President Ronald Reagan.
The company I work for was having an art show for it's employees and this is the piece I entered.
For my first portrait I think it turned out pretty well.
I made the pattern on the computer using Freehand and a photo I found of him.
The frame was from a thrift store and spray painted with a high gloss red paint.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out!!

5  Magazine Totes: 1949 Time Life, AFI and Funky Fashion **Image Heavy** in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by MeShellRene on: February 11, 2006 10:11:05 AM
I love making these bags and they sell really well at the craft shows.
The first bag is made from a great movie ad from a 1949 Time Life Magazine and the rest are from a Rolling Stone and a NYLON mag.

6  4 New Bags: Fruit, Friends, Green Curtain and Vintage Yellow **Image Heavy** in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by MeShellRene on: February 11, 2006 09:59:21 AM
Here are some new bags that I've made over the past months. Now that the Holidays are over I might actually have time to make more.

After taking the photos I realized that I probably should have used a less busy background. Sorry.

7  My "Hip to be Square" Bathroom in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by MeShellRene on: February 03, 2006 08:58:15 AM
We moved into our new house a little over a year ago and this is the only room in the house that is completely decorated and finished.... well almost finished I need to get some little trinkets for the boxes.



I've seen boxes like these at Target for around $20 but I got these at a local Salvation Army Thrift Shop for $3 and with a little white paint I think they match perfect.
