1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Looking to Lighten Jansport Backpack on: August 17, 2014 12:38:54 PM
Hi! I'm starting my Junior year soon and I have my Jansport Backpack that I'm planning on using. However, I'm not a huge fan of the color. I just recently dyed my hair red, and the combonation of the two isn't ideal. So I'm looking for ways to lighten it/ dull the color. Ideally I'm looking for something this color: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-OfrzRI8Ot5A/TgSbJXzqXFI/AAAAAAAAAcQ/2J0PODi5WSg/s1600/light+blue.jpg.

My first thought was bleach, but I'm not sure how well it work on this fabric, how harsh it would be, if it would damage the bag, etc. So if you all have any other ideas, or advice on how to properly bleach it, that would be fantastic! Thanks for any help.

These are adorable! I love them! I've always loved the look of hanging things from clouds. I'm definitely going to keep this idea in mind.
Thanks! Smiley

Cloud Earrings I made today from FIMO clay.

I think they turned out pretty well...

If I were to sell something like these on Etsy, how much would you pay for them? I was thinking I could sell them for somewhere between $5 and $8.

4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Jean Legs? on: August 07, 2012 11:18:13 AM
Recently, I turned a pair of old jeans into shorts. Now I'm left with the two jean legs I cut off.
I was looking at tutorials online to get ideas, and almost all of them are bags. I do love bags, but I already have one too many  Wink
In the past, I made a vest out of jean legs, that turned out really well, but I don't really need another one

Any different ideas for what to do with them?

You could maybe make an umbrella out of it... You could find an old umbrella frame from a thrift store?

I'll try my best to explain this...
My friend took an old pair of earbuds, and used the wire to make a necklace with the buds hanging down the middle as a pendant. She either bought it made wire letter an stung them on (it said "music is life") . It looked very cool. Tongue

My Origami Shark Necklace - made out of card-stock, wire, thread, paint, chain, and my hot glue gun.

I used this: http://youtu.be/MxqFdiCPS5k tutorial to make the shark head.
Then, I painted the teeth on and glued a wire inside of the origami puppet to make sure the mouth stayed open.
The fin is cut out of the same paper I used to make the head... it's hot-glued that to the top.
Next, I cut two of the fish out of orange paper, and painted the same design on each piece.
I got my tread and hot glued on of the fish on each side... like a sandwich.
I tied the string onto the wire inside of the shark puppet and hot glued the knot so it wouldn't untie. Last, I made wire loops and hot glued them into the folds on either side of the shark head, and attached the chain to those loops.

Hope you like it!
