11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Recycled Messenger Bag on: August 31, 2012 09:00:53 AM
I've never really sold anything before that I've made or "remade" into something else. I don't know where to start! I was thinking maybe my local craft fairs?
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Recycled Messenger Bag on: August 30, 2012 03:46:33 PM
My boyfriend (who owned a print shop) has a box of these messenger bags in the basement.



I needed a new messenger bag.... I used some Mizerak cloth adhesive (made for billiard tables) and glued down the material then sewed around it to make it look better.



I think it turned out pretty well.

I've always wanted to decoupage an old guitar case I have... this has inspired me. Beautiful!

16  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Doll bed, bedding, new pj's and two new outfits in one weekend! on: August 26, 2012 01:34:52 PM
Whew.

My daughter just got her first AG doll for her birthday. So of course she "needed" a bed, clothing and EVERY thing else that this momma can't afford. I barely saved and skimped enough to buy the doll !



So here's what I came up with on my own. The doll bed itself was a very old and broken doll crib that I cut up, glued, screwed and nailed back together and painted. The actual bedding was actually a crib set... bumper made a great mattress, while the sheets and crib skirt was just sized down for the doll bed. The blanket was the matching curtains from the old nursery. Pillows from the leftovers! I was so tired afterwards and it actually looked soooo comfy I needed a nap! lol! BUT, no... my little one needed some pj's for her dolly... so I took a pair of old leggings of hers and made some. THAT was my Friday...




Saturday, well, she again "needed" clothes. So back to my daughters stash of no longer wanted or worn clothing pile for material. I love how the little dress turned out. And an old pair of jeans too small and some ribbon made a cute little capri's and strap top for her new doll.



Sunday, I'm resting. Until the girl child "needs" something else.....
