1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: 1 Fat Quarter + 1 2yr Planner = Super Spiffy Planner or Checkbook Cover on: December 29, 2006 09:53:06 PM
Thanks... what I did was I took some poster board (went to get cardstock paper, but passed by the poster board and thought it would do better), cut it out the same size as the planner unfolded out (not in the plastic cover).... then I placed it over the fabric and cut the fabric out leaving about an inch of edge, folded those over the cardboard and used a spray adhesive to glue those edges. Then took another piece of poster board the same size I had cut before, and placed it over the side where the raw edges of the fabric were exposed, using spray adhesive again.... I then folded the fabric covered poster board and used the iron to press it so that way the fold was nice and perfect. Inserted into the plastic cover, then put the planner in behind it. But you don't really have to use an embrodiery machine for embelishing, there's many things you can do, like super cute beads on a floral fabric or use gems for eyes on animals or what have you Smiley the possibilities are ENDLESS Smiley But I made sure when I did it, it was something that could lay flat, you couldn't see raw edges, basicly something a botique wouldn't have issues selling LOL.

Thanks!!! Overall I spent less than 20 bucks on them, cause I already have TONS of fabric, and used my embrodiery machine, so I spent less then $2 each out of my current pocket LOL... Thanks for the compliment!!

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


4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Swimsuits for the Rest of Us! on: June 12, 2006 09:51:14 PM
You know, looking around for the perfect swimsuit made me think... We area all uncomfortable in them because of the "exposer" with swimsuits.. lovehandles, thighs... and in my case from the recent surgery the belly bulge I NEVER had before (seriously a problem, my upper and lower lower body fits one size, but I have to buy a size larger with the massive scar tissue issue... anyway.. in clothes we feel a lot more hidden, and going for shorts and stuff. Well I was thinking wouldn't it be nice to have an under swimsuit blubber-holder-inner? I know the ones that are made to be "slimming" I didn't particularly care for the design of it, I wanted the swimdress (to hind the thighs & hiney) but the one I got, I thought had the "slimming" thing, but didn't. But I mean kinda a wrap maybe for under your suit for around your waist, we find clothes to flatter our figures, but swimsuits are soo difficult. I myself know I'd buy one if it were out there. What do you all think?

It's soo hard to find a swimsuit! Unfortunatly my old navy didnt have any what so ever! I went around all day looking for one, it was very discouraging, I did finally find one but idealy I wouldve liked it in a different print.. the one I found was cute, but I have seen cuter.
