1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Mexican Loteria Projects on: March 20, 2007 02:15:54 PM
Bracelet and necklace made from a teeny loteria game I picked up in Mexico.  I can't wait to make more!

Bracelet with "la Sirena" stabilized turquoise chips, red glass beads, and red, turquoise, and blue rocailles:

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Retro 40s dress on: May 15, 2006 06:12:13 AM
I stitched this up from a pattern by Sense and Sensibility.  Here's the pattern: Swing Dress

It was a project for DH's grandparents' 60th wedding anniversary party.  We all got done up in period dress.  DH found a WWII Marine's uniform on Ebay, other men were able to round up stuff from the local VFW.  We did a vow renewal, and my daughter had a fancy flower girl dress made by MIL.


It was a bit picky, as it's made with "retro" techniques as well.  Lots of pinning and topstitching, rather than flat out sewing the seam.  I have to say, I'm not really impressed with how it made up.  Maybe the fabric was too busy, and it didn't show the detail as well.  I think I could have really made it stand out in a more subdued print and piping at the detail areas.

At any rate, here it is:



And a family pic, DS was being a butt and wouldn't get in the picture:
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Stamped Melamine Plate on: May 15, 2006 05:54:15 AM
Here's a project I did with our Brownie troop.  I got the kit for the plates from www.makit.com .  The girls colored theirs with markers, but I did some stamping when I had the free time.  You send them off, and UPS brings you a professionally molded plate with your cool design.

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Decoupage Teacher's Gift on: May 15, 2006 05:52:11 AM
It was Teacher Appreciation Week last week, so I whipped up this goodie for DD's first grade teacher.  Base was a 67 cent chip box from AC Moore.  Covered in Spring Stack base paper inside and out.  The handstamped background didn't scan well, it's a floral stamp behind the teacher's name.  It's filled with 8 handstamped notecards.  I noticed she always wears pastels, and purple is her fave color.  Enough with the apples already  Wink
