61  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Multistrand Uzumaki on: February 05, 2006 10:38:42 PM
This is my first ever real completed piece of jewelry!  I got the idea from the DIY Jewelry Making show on the DIY network. Its just a whole bunch of different things; chain, 2 sizes/colors glass pearls, 3 types of ribbon, and 2 colors suede wrapped together and attached to a multistrand clasp. The pendent I got at a bartar fair. Dont let the second pic mislead you, as far as size Id guess its about 2 in X 2 in.  The picture really doesnt do it justice as it has lines of pink and green in it.

You can get the instructions for the necklace here http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/cr_jewelry/article/0,2025,DIY_13762_4006378,00.html
62  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Having Problems with the Top o' Bags on: December 27, 2005 11:58:28 AM
Whenever I seem to make larger bags to carry things to school and work the top part of the bag sags down. What can I do to have my bags keep the same straight shape? Stiffer fabric? If my description doesnt make any sense Ill post some pictures of my bags as an example. Any tips would be appreciated. 
63  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Fuzzy Button Bangle on: December 15, 2005 10:04:10 AM
I found a tin of matching buttons at the craft store the other day, came home, and fiddled around w/ them until I could figure out what it was. At first I thought maybe bag handles, or a choker, but as soon as I added the fur yarn I knew it was meant to be a bracelet. Anyways heres what I came up with...oh ya and its held together with blue wire.


64  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Beaded Snowflake Glomitts on: December 15, 2005 09:57:30 AM
Im really an embroiderer at heart and only really started getting into beadwork when I purchased a book online entitled Embeadery.  Its an awesome book for both beaders and embroiderers.  This is one of the mandalas she shows how to make using a beaded feather stitch.  I used star sequins and white/clear beads to try to make it look like a snowflake. I dont know if you can tell from the picture but I also did some beading on the edge of the mitten part too. I know they arent identical, but no 2 snowflakes are *exactly* the same.

65  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Flower Pants *bluesparkie swap spoiler* on: December 05, 2005 10:45:05 PM
These are the pants that I just finished for the "Embellish my clothes" swap.  BlueSparkie sent me a pair of plain black pants and I went to town  Cool  She indicated that she liked noncheesy flowers so I found a tattoo pattern and based this off of it.  The large flowers took forever because I used a close netstitch I put a closeup of it to show the texture. Let me know what you think!


66  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / acrylic and textile medium on: October 17, 2005 03:07:16 PM
I just got started buying all of my suplies to try out stenciling.  My question is on the back of the textile medium it says to let the paint dry a week before heat sealing. Is this correct? Seems like a bit much.
67  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Sealing Mod Podge? on: September 26, 2005 10:07:56 PM
I was wondering if you guys know of any readily available sealers for Mod Podge.  Ive used Mod Podge on some pots and a table top and have noticed it gets tacky and absorbs water.  The instructions on the back suggest a Clear Acrylic Sealer. Does anyone know any recommended brand names or where I can purchase it?
68  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Alice and the Caterpillar on: September 14, 2005 10:04:40 AM
Ive only just recently become interested in embroidery since I joined a Brazilian embroidery class for the summer.  This was my first project ever. The caterpillar's cloud is a black sparkly see-through material and the pink flowers on the bottom are dimensional.

This is my first post with a pic in it so hopefully i get this all figured out ok Grin Lemme know what you think!
