1  1 Fat Quarter + 1 2yr Planner = Super Spiffy Planner or Checkbook Cover in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Mishy on: December 29, 2006 05:44:03 PM
Hey Everyone, because my funds were limited this year, I had to get super crafty with my co-worker gifts (I had 10, even if I spent $10 each, that's a hundred... and to buy a gift under 3 bucks usually ends up a cheesy gift). Well I came across these cheesy lookin 2 year planners one day at a party n dollar store, looked at them, but thought that was still somewhat cheesy. But the idea didn't leave my head, a few days later the lightbulb went off and I desided to embelish it! The girls LOVED them, a few of them actually have asked me if they could "place orders" for them for their friend's b-day gifts (I've had "orders" placed a few times for a few of my crafty creations) But I wanted to share this with all my fellow crafty creators here and if you want a tutorial, I'll be HAPPY to fill the request  Grin!

You could totally run with the idea and do more with the fabrics, and embelishments, buttons, ribbons, applique... if you all do.... PLEASE POST PICS I WANNA SEE HOW GREAT THEY LOOK!!! It only takes like 20 mins at the most to make!!! Tell me what you think!!

The one I made for me was the "trial and error" one, when I embroidered it it came out ITTY BITTY tooo small, and I ran out of the fabric so I made this one for me

2  Personalized Etched Glass Mugs in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Mishy on: May 26, 2006 11:15:17 PM
I made these for the girls at work for christmas. I filled the cups with a baggie of hot coco mix and some marshamellows. Everyone loved them... This one I made cause one of the girls wanted me to make one for her to buy and give to her sister for her birthday. I think it came out swell. I used the tutorial from here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=17742.0 very very easy! On the font I put their name & back of the mugs I put hearts simular to the circles idea on the tutorial.

Bought the mugs from walmart for like $.97 so it was a really froogle way of giving x-mas gifts   Cool

Hey all, Pink_Dinosaur recieved my bag Monday and asked me if I took pictures of them, so I am going to post them. It did have a magnetic button closer on it as well. I hope she really liked them, I worked really hard on it And since I was late due to a family emergancy I made a matching checkbook cover with a slot for an ID or picture, even got a very large hole punch so I could put the thumb slip in the clear vinal Smiley This is the first time I made a bag like this (and didn't even have a pattern, of course I never have a pattern LOL)

(Pink_Dinosaur was posting at the same time, yes here they are)
