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 The other dresses are from old barbie dolls...haha And the purple/gold/red ones are purely clay that was painted
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
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!
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:
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 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
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!"
