21  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Another book clutch... prom style on: May 25, 2005 08:15:57 PM
My girls and I got together to make cuuute purses for prom.  Here's how they turned out.  I actually made both the black and white ones... the silver one is the work of the owner!

These two pics are my black clutch... I'm sorry if you can't see it too well.  It's black satin, with a little clasp that i glued on made from a sewn rectangle of fabric.  The button matches the buttons on my bracelet:



This one is a cute silver one with a silver sequin elastic wrapped and glued around the top to give it a cute little closure w/o a clasp or handle.  I'm not sure what the fabric was, but it was thin enough that we had to cover the book with white paper before trying to attach it.


This big white one was a near disaster b/c I ironed it with water still in my iron and I had these horrendous water stains on part of the fabric (it was satin!!) The NIGHT BEFORE PROM NO LESS.  But we managed.  This one I made the clasp for sans sewing... just a folded fabric scrap with enough hot glue to hold its shape.  Even the button hole is superglued Smiley  The button is an adorable pearl button that i found in my mom's collection and it goes w/ her heavily beaded dress perfectly.


I hope everyone adores these bags... we did!  Post with abandon your comments!
22  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Vintage buttons bracelet on: May 25, 2005 07:39:37 PM
I made this bracelet to wear at prom... it was painstaking work, but totally worth it.  I got these cute buttons from the 30s and 40s and attached them to 3 sets of brass chain with matching jumprings.  The little beads were in there b/c they matched my dress and i needed something to tie it in.  I used a 3-prong clasp to finish it up.  I hope you guys like it!

this is it laid out on my counter: just look at all those cute buttons!


this is me trying to model the clasp w/o success:


this picture is a not so effective one of it on my wrist:


oh and this is one of the earrings I made to go with the bracelet... they're just those same little reddish beads attached to extra chain and a matching earring finding:


this happens to be a cruddy but cute picture of me wearing my earrings on prom day:


I do hope you guys will post any and all of your comments!
23  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Dyeing satin shoes on: March 26, 2005 05:33:10 PM
I really love these shoes... I want to wear them for my prom!  The only thing is I need them in black Sad  Do you guys think it's possible to get these dyed?  They don't say dyeable, but they don't say not reccomended for dyeing either.  Any advice guys? Huh
