1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Two Cool T-Shirt Handbags on: September 02, 2006 10:31:16 PM
Made from, plain t-shirts, (scrap fabric only on for the brown one), wood handles, iron-on transfers. The Erykah Badu Bag (orange) has round handles and the Bob Marley bag has semi-circle shaped handles. Got the handbag idea from the book "Teasse: 50 Inspired T-shirt Transformations".

Tell me what ya think. All feedback welcome. Tips too!  Wink



2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / I Clueless about making a Leather Cuff!!! AID ME PLEASE!!! on: August 29, 2006 05:37:30 AM
I've search all of the craft stores around and I'm at a loss now and in serious need of some guidance.  I'd like to make some cuff bracelets similar to the ones below.  First, I have no clue where to get the supplies and once I have them...well, I could wing it, but info on the bracelet constructions would be nice.  The original cuff bracelets are made of an assortment of: leather, texture(whatever that is), snakeskin, stones, tiger shell, feathers, etc.  All different depending on the cuff.  So help please.  Yes, I'm grovelling.  Any directions on how/where to get the supplies and how to create the cuffs? 

The oringinal website is located here:  http://karmakultura.com/store/collection_she.php?Id_products=59&Id_collection=5

Thanks in advance for your ingenious tips!    Kiss

4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / My Iron-on Transfers T-Shirts from a Newbie!!! on: May 06, 2005 09:51:07 PM
I'm new around here.  Only a few post to ask questions and to gush over other people's work.  I can't sew, but I'm learning to this summer.  So, for now I am the lover of Iron-on transfers and no-sew projects.  Here are some of my iron-on transfer shirts.  Comments and suggestions appreciated!  Thanks for stopping by!
-Natural Starlet Wink

This shirt has an Outkast lyric on it.  It says "Sad, but one day our kids will have to visit museums to see what a lady looks like."  I love Outkast.  I added some jewels with my gluegun.  The jewels are on the back too.

I made this recently. Does anyone remember the show "Fraggle Rock"?

Here is the back of the "Fraggle Rock" shirt.

I cut this shirt up.  It was a plan white t-shirt.  I also tied on these lacy sleeves from a old headband.  That's Etta James on the shirt.

Here is a close up of the Etta James shirt.
