I wasn't sure where to put these, but I was looking through my tear off pinup calendar for 2005 (which I never tore off, wanted to save them for craft projects!) and I found these two lovely ladies. Maybe someone could use them for an iron on transfer or decoupage...
I used the amazing Marvy Fabric Markers to turn this super girly pillowcase from the thrift store (only $1.15) into a personalized much-cooler pillowcase for my little sister. These markers are so easy to use, don't come out in the wash, and make it easy to draw fine lines & details. Sorry to sound like an infomercial! Here's a link to where you can get them: http://www.durablesupply.com/fabricmarkers.html.
These clear ornament balls hold a world of possibilities- I used contact paper, alphabet stickers, and etching creme to etch the names on the ornaments, then suspended some charms with thread and dropped some beads in the bottom of one. Tie on a ribbon, and voila! Classy looking, no?!
Hope you can get the idea from these sub-par photographs.
My 8 year old brother hates homework. And just recently got glasses, that he only needs to wear when doing it. When he puts them on, he knows he's in homework mode. So the new joke is, whenever i see him, i ask, "having you been doing your homework?" then i screw up my face stupidly and say, "HOMEWORK, NARFFFFFF" while pushing up my invisible fake glasses. He thinks its hysterical.
I picked up this shirt at the thrift store for $1.50, used iron on lettering, and used a glasses stencil I got off of Google Images- I used contact paper to make the stencil (oh so easy).
My family never really celebrated Christmas (I grew up "non-denominational Christian") but my boyfriend's family always made a huge deal about the holidays. So we decorate- one year, we had an apartment with tall enough ceilings, so we got a real tree, lugged it up the stairs to our 3rd floor apartment, and had a tree decorating party. We got a bunch of those clear ball ornaments that you can put things into, and laid out a crapload of magazines. It was really fun. This year, we're pretty low key with our crappy artificial tree (shown next to a plant for scale). The ornaments come from our decorating party and a lot of them are through a christmas ornament swap I did last year. Then we just have some random things strewn about. The toppers are mini donuts I made from a tutorial on this site for felt donuts.
I LOVE Simplicity 4668- I've made about 5 bags from this pattern already- I love its hugeness. I made this first bag from the ever popular Alexander Henry tattoo fabric (I got mine from reprodepot.com). One of my coworkers liked it so much she asked me to make her one:
This bag is for my boyfriend's sister. It's made out of corduroy, which I HATE HATE HATE working with. But its done, thats all that matters. I just never want to see it again....
And there is a vintage pin (eBay) coming in the mail that I thought would fit the bag perfectly
*Phew*. Sorry for all the pictures. I lined both bags with heavy black canvas, so I got to avoid interfacing! I would recommend it for all bag making.
