Very cool. There's something to do with the pants that have holes in *ahem* scandalous places.

That bag is awesome. I'm collecting fortunes for doing something possibly like this.

Whoa! That bag is so completely awesome. Somehow I can never have the patience for ducttape bags but I can spend multiple hours/days/weeks on other things. I really hope to see more cool bags like that around though.
114  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Tollhouse Cookie Tin Purse! on: June 24, 2005 07:55:34 PM
Yes! I found an awesome cookie tin bank purse and fell in love with it immediately. So, after tearing apart my basement (coming up with about six or seven tins, but just using one), I made this. All of it was done a couple months ago, but I'm just finally getting it up. Sorry about the bad lighting for the photos.

To find the tutorial for this, and the one that gave me the go-ahead to do this one, it is at: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=3871.0

The lovely cookie tin purse. It's so useful and durable.

The inside, complete with white polka-dotted red lining that has two pockets sewn and put on with spray adhesive by moi for optimum use of chapstick (Lip Rescue with Shea Butter!) and other assorted items!

Tada! The inside of the top with an old mirror for checking yourself out/checking out others behind you/reflecting the sun.
115  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Bags, Purses, Cozies, Wallets and Scarves! on: June 24, 2005 06:39:19 PM
What happens when you start your summer of with 1) no job, 2) boredom, 3) crochet hooks, and 4) multiple selections of cheap, useless yarn floating around your house? Take a wild guess. Six bags/purses/cozies/wallets/scarves later, we have an answer. Technically, it was probably more like ten crocheted items later, but I gave away my other ones already. Much of this was just bored experimentation, so I didn't use a pattern for any of them. I'd say they were all in sc, but I just found out all along I've been doing a stitch sort of like a sc or dc but not exactly like either. Oh well. C'est la vie.

116  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Pages from my art journal. on: April 01, 2005 07:13:03 PM
I really like the first three too. All of it's very cool. I love the Go Veg page too. The pig and the chick is so cute. (Yay for not eating animals!)
117  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: "France in a box" on: April 01, 2005 03:53:51 PM
Wow. I love all of these ideas. I might have to do something like this. I especially like the fleur de lys thing since my name is Iris. It helps.

Also, other possibilities:
-French chocolate (you can find it usually in some supermarkets, but it is an essential French staple...if you think it might melt or something, you could eat the chocolate and put the coverings on the "travel journal)
-Old looking French Posters (usually found in craft stores...more 20's France is good or the French revolution)
-Les Miserables by Victor Hugo...oops. someone already did that...
-Any Moulin Rouge memorabilia (tres chic!)...windmills, anything saying MR, corset things, etc.
-If you don't want movies, at least find pictures or trinkets from Amelie
-Frommage..er..cheese (not actual cheese, since that could be potentially gross, but any cheese-related things
-Frog-ish things (frog legs are a delicacy after all, right?)

I'm way to ADD to pay attention anymore. So that is the end of my ideas...for now... (This is why I shouldn't watch TV).

Hope it helps.

Whoa. That is an awesome purse! I would definitely do something like that!

That is so cute! This tut was awesome. I have a bunch of old square Toll House cookie tins that are just the perfect size for this. Plus, after looking at these pictures this morning, I tore apart the basement sorting through about eight gigantic boxes of material. I unearthed enough to make several bags on their own, let alone the lining for the tins. All I need is a nice long strap and I have everything! It's so awesome that you inspired me into action!

YES! This is awesome! I am a complete candy sticks addict! I gave all of my boxes to my friend though...guess I'll just have to go out and get some more!
