2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / iPod case.. on: October 08, 2005 01:53:10 PM
Yes, ANOTHER iPod case.

Boring, but I like it.



^open


^closed (front)


^back (put in a slot for the carrying clip, & its closed with a snap)


^top (hole for earphones)

I basically used this tutorial (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=42994.0), but I modified some things.

I know it's very plain, but I'm thinking about adding something to the front. I just don't know what yet.

Comments/criticism?
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / TUTORIAL! >>iPod cozy from old pyjamas..<< on: August 02, 2005 10:59:42 AM
So I had these really cute pajamas with ice cream sundaes on them and whatnot, but they were WAY too small. So, I cut off part of the bottom of one of the pant legs and part of the drawstring, and turned it into a REALLY cute cozy for my iPod mini.

(Sorry if the pictures are huge)


^Front


^Back (I was too lazy to change the thread on the machine, so I used black  Lips sealed)


^My iPod going in the cozy


^iPod in the cozy, with the loop/button thing closed.

So.. comments/criticism? I know it's not very original, but I like it, and it suits the purpose.

EDIT: TUTORIAL NOW ADDED!

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / My new sewing room! on: July 08, 2005 11:02:21 AM
So, ever since I found this site, I've become really interested in sewing and whatnot. I originally didn't have a very good sewing room, just a little cubby thing with a big mess everywhere. Well, I still have that little cubby thing, but now it's so much better than it was before.


A good whole view of the room. You can see the built-in table with my sewing machine on it, and room for laying out patterns, and the board on the wall with the slots and hangers to hang stuff on (helps keep clutter away!)


A better view of the table. Now I have a good sewing room to go with that pretty sewing machine my parents bought me =]


A better view of the board and the hangers. Yeah, there are only two right now, but my neighbor owns a sports store and has lots of hangers to give us, that he doesn't use anymore.


And the little devil who always insists on being with me when I'm sewing, just to make a mess. His eyes are really glowy in this picture.. haha.

So there ya have it, folks; my awesome sewing room.

This was made possible with the help of my dad, who got the board, the table, and made the sliding doors to cover up all the insullation and power control things. I did all the painting, though!

So what do you all think?
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Question about this wire that I have... please help. on: June 30, 2005 03:40:49 PM
Okay, so I have this wire:


That I got at a scrapbooking store a couple hours north of where I live. I checked their online store, and it wasn't listed, because I bought it like.. a year and a half ago, maybe.

Problem is, I didn't keep the package, and I don't remember what gauge it is/what it's called (like what type of wire).

I know you guys might not be able to help, but it's worth a shot. The wire is really thin, and it looks like this:

(sorry for bad pic)

It's really really thin, and it bends a lot, almost like it's going to break.. but it doesn't, haha. It doesn't hold it's shape very well.

So if anyone knows what gauge it is, what it's called, or any uses for it (look at all the pretty colours! wouldn't want that to go to waste!), can you please share? Thanks a bunch in advance!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Crazy checkered capris to skirt recon on: June 18, 2005 10:59:48 AM

Please excuse my pudginess and mess of a room =]

Comments/feedback/criticism are welcome!
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / TUTORIAL ADDED - Funny 'I Am Canadian' shirt to over-the-shoulder bag on: June 14, 2005 05:44:44 PM
Okay, so I had this t-shirt that I got a while ago in Port Elgin, Ontario, and I absolutely love it, but it got too small, and the words on the shirt started cracking. So.. I made it into a bag. It goes over my shoulder so that I can bring it to concerts and whatnot.. and it's strong, so it holds everything I need. The strap is also made out of this padded material that I had lying around.

^ 'Action shot'

Yep, that's it! I guess you could say it's lined, since I doubled up the t-shirt fabric before I sewed both pieces together.. it's kind of complicated to explain. I'm surprised it turned out so well, since I didn't really measure or anything like that. Hm; weird. Tongue

Comments/Criticism are encouraged! =]
