43  My take on the felt barrel purse...<3 in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by justxlove on: July 30, 2005 07:02:01 AM
Okay....what can I say.
I'm addicted to felt. haha.
I'm sure others have went through this, well maybe not but whatever. =P
Okay so I followed some of these directions with a few of my own twists...

I love it so much and the polka dot felt, well it's my favorite felt ever. I already have a clutch using it. lol. The lining is turquoise, I'm not sure if you can tell very well from the pictures and with all my junk in my purse. The lining is also felt. =P

I said this before but I truly believe this is my first really big sewing project. It took forever because I hand sewed the entire thing. It was my first time ever making an actual purse and not a clutch. It was my first time installing a zipper, making the ends round like that (which took me a little while to get the hang of), lining it like this (the only other 'lining' I've done is for a book clutch), my first time adding handles. Okay well a lot of first and probably even more than that. So I'm pretty darn proud of myself. I hope you like it. =)
Comments are always appreciated and thanks for looking.

44  a cute clutch for the cutest girl ever! <3 in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by justxlove on: July 30, 2005 06:46:21 AM
Okay so there's this little girl at my church.
She is absolutely adorable and the sweetest little thing ever.
I love her so much.
Well I saw this felt and it yelled Brenlee, so of course I got it.
I have two others of my own and after her looking through it one night I decided I'd make her one. =)
These are my other two... http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=41702.0
So anyhow here it is.

45  a little bit of a different take on the book purse. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by justxlove on: July 30, 2005 06:30:24 AM
okay so i lied, a little. lol.
its pretty much a book purse, my third. haha.
anyhow but as suggested to someone in my other post of book purses
i closed it with a ribbon.
i love this one the best. =)
and as i did the others i used an old readers digest
and again used the cow print material.

Thanks for looking! And comments are greatly appreciated. =)

46  pudding cups + christmas lights = pretty pretty lights -updated and image heavy- in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by justxlove on: July 26, 2005 01:08:07 AM
Okay so I came up with this idea one day when someone asked what they could do with pudding cups. I spray painted some pudding comes and poked a hole in the end with an ice pick and then I strung Christmas lights through them. It was a really simple process and I love the outcome. You could always decorate your pudding comes with drawings, sequins, rhinestones, whatever you wanted really. Well here are some pictures, these were taken in the dark to give the 'full effect' Enjoy!

And a few close ups...not too good but the best I could do.

Okay well anyhow, as always, comments are appreciated. =) I hope you like them as much as I do. If anyone wants/needs a full tutorial I'd be more than willing to write one out. Well thanks for looking. <3

! New pictures !
In the light, not too good but enough where you can tell.

47  my very first book purse(s) - image heavy in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by justxlove on: July 23, 2005 03:56:31 PM
Okay so I jumped on the bandwagon and made a book purse. The sides are extremely hard so don't even ask me how I did them because I'm not really sure myself. My first is so horrible. If you saw the inside in person you would probably freak out, yeah that bad. I didn't really sew it so yeah I don't know it's really hard to even tell you what I did. Well I just took some fabric I had around the house, it doesn't match but I really don't care. Oh these are some Readers Digest books that I had that are dated anywhere from 67-83. So I don't know about these but they're really old, hah. Okay well here they are.
The first purse -

And the second, a lot better and my favorite of the two -

By the way I hand sewed them and it's obvious but I really don't care. Oh and sorry for the crappy pictures I would take better but my camera is acting up so I don't know.

Tell me what you think.
Thanks for looking.

Oh I forgot to mention I haven't thought of an idea for closing it. Does anybody have one because I'm completely out of ideas. And I do not intend to sew any more fabric, haha so yeah that probably limits it down but yeah. Thanks again.

50  safety pin bracelet -updated- in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by justxlove on: July 01, 2005 06:13:59 PM
This is my safety pin bracelet.
It was really easy to make.
I'm sure you all know how.
I simply took seed beads of random colors and beaded them onto the safety pins.
I then flip flop strung them onto elastic string.
In other words I'd string the top of one then the bottom and so on.
I did this on both ends and then tied it and there you go.

Oh and I took a better picture because the other ones sucked.

Thanks for looking. <3
