1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Fishtank to Table on: February 16, 2004 06:06:20 AM
This isn't a super cute project, but i thought i'd post it incase there's someone out in cyber land that needed an idea for a fishtank...

I redecorated my room last summer, and i really needed some kind of a vanity. We had this old nasty fish tank lying around, and it was a great size. I used a ton of nasty chemicals to strip the rust/paint off, painted it white, and just got two pieces of glass to use as surfaces. It probably cost a total of $10!


I also think it would be pretty cool to just leave the tank in the base, and put a piece of glass over that... just fill the tank up with funky toys, etc.

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Heavy Metal!!! on: February 11, 2004 08:15:06 PM
My new purse!!! I got the cassette design from the last issue of ReadyMade. I embroidered it onto a simple tote i got at Michael's. This was my first time doing it, and it is addicting!! so i had to add a phrase of somekind, and when i think embroidery, heavy metal comes to mind. Wink

i hope you guys like it...


3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Grommet/Eyelets on: February 03, 2004 03:02:21 PM
Hey guys! i have a question. I was wondering if there are any sites/stores that sell grommets/eyelets in large quantities for cheap. I can only find them in small packets at fabric stores. it's driving me mad, and poor.

any suggestions will rock my world.<3
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Zipper Decorated Purse! on: January 16, 2004 08:15:49 PM
Hey craftsters!

This is my first real post... I absolutely love this site. You are all so fantastically creative. What an inspirational group!<3

anyways... i just thought i'd share a purse i made over my winter vacation. I was browsing through a fabric store (as i often do) and there was a great deal on zippers. 4 for a dollar. They were in really great colors as well, so how could i pass it up?? I've always loved how zippers look, so instead of making them functional, i just put them on the front of a purse, for decoration. i think it turned out way funky. then the grommets and chain strap added more hot hardware. anyways. here it is... i hope you guys like it...

monochromatic! yay! heheh.

Houndstooth rules my world so hard.
