221  Re: Ongoing Wish Swap 10 gallery! in The Swap Gallery by SevsOnlyGirl on: May 26, 2006 04:50:09 PM
I received totally amazing hair gizmo's from liebschien yesterday!  She said that she tried things she hadn't tried before, but I would never have guessed it!  They are awesome!

Close up of the beads on the hairsticks - I had to take them out of my hair to do the photo:

An Aschnebly (did I spell that right?) headband in my fave color:

a comb with fuzzy knitting?crochet? (anyhow it's pretty!), a hairtie with a crochet cover and a fantastic barrette:

A close-up of the barrette.  My daughter confiscated the barrette, she thought it was totally cool - she's 11yo.  I may never see it again.  I took it out of her hair for the pic.

I love my new hair gizmo's and now I think I may need more.  Thanks again, liebschien!!!

I received the most amazing swap journal from onthinice yesterday!

 It's beautiful and perfect for me.  Karen PM'd and asked if I had a particular theme I was looking for and I told her to make whatever she wanted.  She took the time to post-stalk me and figure out what I'd like and here's what I got:

The letter explained that the journal is made of Welsh Green Dragon hide embossed with the Slytherin house crest.LOL

The front of the journal - the little tin start says "Anti Spew" and it closes with rawhide lacing.

The embossed house crest

The journal pages

Yes, I'm in my 30's but I love Harry Potter so this was perfect!  What a great job, onthinice!!!  The funny part was that I had already seen her journals and thought that they were great!

I got my package from miss_katonic!!!  She really outdid herself.  Everything is wonderful and I love it!  So, here's pictures and descriptions:

First, a fabulous bag.  It's green velvety with black lace trim around the top, lined with burgundy satiny type material.  There is a stenciled patch sewn on the front of the Potions Master.  Great job! 2 pics:

A Snape Calendar - can you imagine a whole year of Snape? Is this what the file is for miss_katonic?

A boo-boo pad done in HP flannel.  I'm keeping this one at work for headaches and such:

Armwarmers in Slytherin colors!  I love these and am going to be wearing them all the time:

Last, but certainly not least, is a stenciled Snape shirt.  It's perfect *sigh* I know you can't read it, but it says "Five points from Gryffindor for being an insufferable know-it-all" , combining my love of Snape and Hermione wonderfully.

I hope these pics work!  Thank you so much miss_katonic!  Now I'm really worried about what I sent you.  Hey, how did your package get here before mine got to you?  That's weird.

224  First Circle Skirt - I cheated! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by SevsOnlyGirl on: April 13, 2006 06:42:25 AM
Okay, I was having a hard time with the measurements for the waist part of the circle skirts.  So I went off to JoAnn's and used my 40% coupon to buy a circle skirt panel.  Now I understand it much better.  But I also learned how to put in a zipper nicely, how to make a waistband and how to attach rickrack to the hem!  So it was a good lesson for $6.

Here is a closeup of the fabric:

Here is the skirt on:

I really like that the skirt hides a multitude of flaws!LOL  I've been getting compliments all day.  I'm pretty pleased and think that now I can make one following the patterns on here.

225  Just another Weasley shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by SevsOnlyGirl on: March 16, 2006 06:42:35 AM
I'm sure everyone is tired of seeing "Weasley Is Our King" shirts, but here's mine.  It's my first stenciled shirt and I was pretty pleased with it.  I just traced a crown and cut it out, then used my scrapbooking letter stencils to do the words.  I can't do straight and centered, perhaps because I'm a bit "off" (LOL), so I just went off to the side and angled.  It worked out okay.

Thanks for looking!

226  Anime (V-Day) Shrine in Valentine's Day by SevsOnlyGirl on: February 10, 2006 09:05:28 AM
Okay, a male friend of mine needed to do something for his wife for V-Day.  I talked him into making a shrine.  Ok, mostly because I wanted to try it, but she'll love it!!!

If you're into Anime, you'll probably recognize it.  This is her fave movie and characters and we did the inside kinda different.  Please tell me what you think:

I hope the pics come through alright.

227  My first Sha Sha Dream Bag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by SevsOnlyGirl on: January 22, 2006 10:24:45 AM
Okay, I've made reconstructed purses before, but this is my first attempt at a "serious" purse!  I really liked it until my dh pointed out all the little stuff, now I'm not sure I should carry it out in public!!  Tell me what you think please.

Here's the front:
I got the material from my friends material closet.  The outside is cord and I loved the inside fabric.

From the side:

The inside (I don't think you can see my Betty stuff though:

Thanks for any input!!

228  My best book purse so far (only done 2!) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by SevsOnlyGirl on: January 12, 2006 10:47:17 AM
I made this one for a 13yo girl, she really liked it:

close up of the front (it hooks with a snap, then I sewed the zebra button over it for a better look, besides I LOVE that zebra!)

shot of interior (had a few problems with this)

Critique please, but be gentle!

229  Bra Purse for Christmas! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by SevsOnlyGirl on: December 21, 2005 11:53:53 AM
This is the first bra purse that I made and I think it turned out pretty well.  I sent it to my sister for Christmas, she'll get a kick out of it.  I just used some red lacy ribbon (reminded me of lingerie) for the handle.  I fastened it with a snap at the high end.  I particularly liked it as the material was all donated and there was no sewing involved!LOL

My friend gave me the bra - said it never fit right.  The thing on the front is a frog I had left over from making a cloak.

I know it's nothing much compared to what y'all do, but it's a start!
