1  Vitamin Water Table - Now With Pictures in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Phunkorama on: November 25, 2004 09:12:51 PM
Anyone familiar with Vitamin Water?


Well. I bought a crate from Costco (much cheaper) and after having drunk it all, I washed and dried the bottles. With at least nineteen bottles clean, I then assembled them in a nice little pentagonal shape. I then found a lovely and conveniently sized piece of round, flat plastic in my garage. So I glued all the bottles to it. And then I had a table. And this is how it came out (the pictures really don't do it too much justice):

Has anyone ever though(or created) a book clutch with tulle? (Tulle:read: the meshy stuff taht ballerina tutu's are made of.) Cause Iw ant to have it peeking out of the top of my clutch. Any tips or ideas will be appreciated. Thnx in advance!! *huggles*

Well what I'd probably do is sew the tulle onto the very tippy top of the back of the lining that I was going to use. Kind of like...
...but kind of softly pleat it so that it has that ruffly thing going on. If you know what I mean. And then proceed as usual.

PS Holy cow, sorry this is four months late, but I haven't been on this website in... well... more than four months. Sorry  Undecided[/font][/color]

3  Book Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Phunkorama on: February 16, 2004 08:13:58 PM
Hey, this is my first project post on here. So please don't make me cry.

I made a book purse using an old book called "Human Heredity" which I found at a little bookstore. I saw something like this on http://www.lavoleuse.com/handbags.html selling for $110. I don't have that kind of money to spend on a purse. I also don't have a digital camera, so I scanned it the best I could. Except, the best I could was, apparently, not so great. Scanners, pshh.



The side, inside, and spine were done before the handles and flower.

Right. Please don't mind the quality. And I'm a little bit upset that the book is kind of ratty. It even had a dirty pawprint on the first page.

I'm not sure if anyone wants to know how to make this... It was pretty easy; a cereal box, some hot glue, and some fabric, and voila! You can reply to this post if you'd like to know how to make it, I guess.

And, this project was a first time thing; I plan on making another one, now that I actually know how to do it. Maybe next time I'll sew instead of use cardboard, so they can open and close a bit better... like the ones at http://phone.victoryatsea.org/. Those are pretty.

I planned on putting more decorations on the outside, but decided not to since it had a nifty little pedigree-type design. But a pretty flower was enough.

Ah, how I love genetics.
