21  Look what I made! - one shouldered top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by rebecnik on: December 08, 2011 03:33:21 PM

My first commercial pattern ever! I am super proud of myself! It was actually supposed to be a dress, but it's waaay too short, so it's now a top. The colors in this picture are a bit off. It's a golden-yellow and maroon.

22  Yaaay! First zipper project complete! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by rebecnik on: March 20, 2011 08:48:46 AM
Those of you who read my distressed post entitled "Why I HATE sewing" can now see the successful DVD player sleeve. I went back to the store to get more supplies, and I saw this satin hounds tooth. Hounds tooth is my favorite pattern! And to go with...a flashy red zipper! It's just perfect! Whew...stress be gone!

23  Why I HATE sewing...[DVD Case] in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by rebecnik on: March 17, 2011 01:00:20 PM
So I don't do a whole lot of sewing. Just basic stuff like hemming. I decided yesterday to sew a case for my portable DVD player. I was all worried about this project, being the first time I've done anything with a zipper. And when I got done sewing the zipper and two sides, I was super proud! The player fit perfectly!!!...through the back. The zipper needed to be about a freakin' half inch longer. And now I don't even have enough fabric to make a separate case for it. So now I need to know what to do with this. It's really not wide enough for pencils or my clay tools or anything. Ugh. I hate this. In every sewing project I do, no matter how hard I try to get everything perfect, I do some major, stupid mistake. Sorry for the rant. I worked really hard on this!  Cry

24  Re: Needle Book Swap (SO: 01 Feb '11) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by rebecnik on: February 24, 2011 05:39:21 PM
Well, I finally got back from a loooong underway, and it was a lovely "welcome back" to get my needlebook when I checked my mail! evilpixie made it, and it is PERFECT!!!!! I seriously love it! I am a huuuge Mario fan, so this is perfect! And it's made of fleece, so it's super soft. She also sent a little needle-felted mushroom charm. It's so cute! I LOVE it! I'm so glad this was my first swap; it really turned out well! And now for the pics...

25  Meet Jeremy! in Felting: Completed Projects by rebecnik on: January 15, 2011 06:13:34 PM
Jeremy the owl! He was sent for the needlebook swap, and I think it was a success. My partner loves it!  Grin Grin Grin

The first one is the "cover." The second is the center flap without needles (cover folded back), and the last one is the center flap with needles (those colors are much truer as well). The closure for the front is a bent nail. Smiley Jeremy is meant to look evil, but I have "programmed" him to protect his official owner. The center flap is meant to look like colors shooting out of a vortex. I don't know if that's what people get out of it, but that's how I envisioned it. I had fun making this, but it wasn't easy getting it done quickly. I'm working with some personal deadlines, so there were definitely a few full days of felting!

26  Re: Bottles of Hope (VERY image heavy) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by rebecnik on: December 16, 2010 01:17:42 PM
Sure do! When I was deciding which photo to post, I decided to just post to close-ups of all of them. I realized that, in the first picture, it is tough to see some of the detail that only I know is there.

27  Bottles of Hope (VERY image heavy) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by rebecnik on: December 15, 2010 05:16:21 PM
I've been working with polymer clay for just a few months now. I used Sculpey when I was really little, and when I decided that I wanted to get back into a hobby, polymer clay sounded perfect. These Bottles of Hope are pretty primitive, considering I've used these to learn techniques. I'm going to try to donate them to the cancer center where my Dad was taken care of.

Sorry the photos are behemoths. I've tried every way I can possibly think of to shrink them, and I just can't do it. Ugh.

Update: Thanks to Diane B. for teaching me how to post photos! Here they are...
Oh, and another update: The bottles in the group picture are happily on their way to the Illinois Caner Center (the 2 not pictured with the group at all are custom orders). Yay!
