1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Magazine Chain Purses on: December 10, 2008 08:33:19 AM

Cutting, folding, putting together, and sewing these bags take such a long time >_< Yet I just can't stop folding old magazines! hehe
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Dress Jewelry Holders (lots of images) on: December 10, 2008 08:26:30 AM
WOW! I haven't posted on Craftster is like years I think! Anyway, lately I have been obsessively making lots of things .
I love jewelry and I make so many different kinds that I just never know where to put them! I hate stuffing the in boxes or drawers where they get tangled up or I can't see them. I saw inspiring but really expensive dress jewelry holders and I wanted one so badly. Sadly I don't have the budget to pay $60 for a jewelry holder. SO.... I made some for myself and for sale in my area:

They were all sculpted by myself with clay and I just added some wires. The first jewelry holder's dress was sewn by myself with my own pattern Cheesy The other dresses are from old barbie dolls...haha And the purple/gold/red ones are purely clay that was painted Cheesy

More to come when I get more time to make them!
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Vintage Coca Cola Card Purse (Sorta Image Heavy) on: March 28, 2006 06:49:06 PM
I saw these cards at Target and I just HAD to make them into a cute purse! I bought a lot of these packages to make for friends of mine because they really like it a lot Cheesy

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / A Cute Original Coca cola purse on: March 28, 2006 06:24:05 PM
I don't think I've seen any coca cola purses around here so I wanted to make a purse out of soda cans. I tried flattening them out and making them square but it got too complicated so I decided to keep them round. After a while of experimenting and using pliers and sissors to carefully cut and tear out the sides of the can, I was satisfied with this lovely thing!

With a nice little cap that snaps on and off! haha, the cap was actually made by accident while I was trying to figure out how this was going to close lol It's basically made from the bottom of a can!

It is quite small so I just use it once in a while to put my cell and wallet in there and other little things Smiley

I could make a tutorial if anyone wants one XD

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Silky Blue Bustier Purse! on: March 28, 2006 06:16:39 PM
I really really like those bustier purses shaped like this but they were too expensive for me and I thought I could try and make my own! After a hours and hours of sitting and thinking and planning and trying to figure out a pattern for this ....TADA! I made one XD This project was a tough one but it's all worth it in the end, a lot of people at my school liked it XD

The fabric was from Wal-mart btw, hehe.. I also have pink fabric that is waiting to be made into one of these too!

7  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Magazine Sneakers on: January 23, 2006 08:41:50 PM
I was really bored the other day and i've been reading my magazines all day and cutting out clothes and collaging them on paper... then i saw my shoes and they looked like blah and I made these shoes lol... I just glued them on there, and then I put clear nail polish for a top coating... i need to get a real clear coating or something for these so it can be waterproof.. i couldn't go to the store :/

I just stumbled upon cponi's shoes and saw she had the same pair as i used above before lol... yeah just so you know this is what it used to look like... (the shoes below are cponi's) hope it's ok to use ur pic here:

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Cute Mini-Card Purse? on: January 02, 2006 05:44:12 PM
This purse is made out of mini playing cards! XD Not the regular sized ones but the smaller ones I got from the dollar store lol.... I used clear duct tape to put them all together Cheesy And I used EVERY single piece of playing card from the deck... and even the leftover scraps I cut off for the sides so it's a /_\ shape... i used it for the straps lol

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / X.x Dead Bunny Purse XD on: December 30, 2005 10:42:29 AM
I just LOVED flauncychauncy's dead cat bag, and i thought is was so funny! I wanted to make one, but I also wanted to be creative and make a BUNNY instead XD I followed some of her tutorial but I sorta got confused so I did a lot of it on my own and made up half of the pattern for a bunny lol

...and I broke 2 needles on my new sewing machine lol.. yeah I'm still trying to get used to my new machine.

I had fun taking pictures..

^And haha my sister just LOVES the purse she keeps taking it from me sayin "MINE MINE this is MINE COLLEEN!"

I might have to make one for her too lol
