1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Mini crown I made using shuttle tatting. on: June 18, 2013 06:23:40 PM
It took me a long time, and I started over a few times, but this is my first project. I still have to clean and starch/shape it. I'm pretty proud of it though, despite the mistakes.

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Hair clips I've started making. on: October 14, 2012 07:48:47 PM
I've started making these hair clips to try to sell, all to fund my fabric stash.



3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Made a lotus blossom hair clip on: March 08, 2012 11:40:57 AM
I've been making hair clips lately, after I got inspired by watching The Big Bang Theory and the episode with Penny's "Penny Blossoms". I was doing regular flowers with the singed fabric technique and decided to try a lotus. Here it is!

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Beaded leaf pattern? on: November 05, 2011 12:59:04 PM
I'm still working on my mother's gift and looking for a pattern for a leaf I can use to accent little lilac flowers I plan to group together. I'm using Miyuki Delicas and looking for something probably with a peyote stitch or similar. Thanks =)
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Need ideas on how to make a necklace. on: October 14, 2011 03:50:14 PM
I am trying to make something for my mother as a late birthday/Christmas present. Very late -_- (I live in another country, so it's hard to send stuff).

Anyway, I am looking for ideas for a necklace preferably using peyote stitch or similar. I have 5 different colors of miyuki delicas, 2 different greens, a blue, and two different colors of purple. I'm hoping to use them to make an intricate necklace of lilacs or something like that, since they're her favorite flowers, and amethyst is her favorite stone. I might also be making some matching earrings if I have enough left over.

If anyone could point me in the direction of some tutorials that might be helpful in my planning of this necklace I'd be very grateful, as I don't know where to start. My beading skills are decent, though I've never done anything spectacularly complicated.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Adding your own pinstripes? on: September 19, 2011 09:58:51 AM
Has anyone ever added their own pinstripes to material with a sewing machine? Is this a feasible idea? I have a white shirt of my husband's that has an elbow rip and I was thinking of making a pencil skirt from it, but I think the material is rather boring and thought of adding my own pinstriping.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Turtleneck turned into sweaterdress. on: July 06, 2011 02:01:37 PM
My grandmother sent me a turtleneck sweater for Christmas, and I knew I would never wear it, so I decided to turn it into a dress.

This is what I started out with, minus the turtleneck:


And these are some of the steps I went through to turn it into a cute little dress:





And the (almost) final product:

All I have to do now is hem the underarm part, and fix the stitching holding the shoulder/cowl thing on.
