31  Re: My take on the pop tab thing ANKLE BRACELET!! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BlankGirl on: November 20, 2005 02:55:07 PM
I absolutely love them. especially the color......howd u get the color so bright?
Grin I finally did it! I made my daughter a pop tab bracelet but she wanted it for her ankle. I spray painted then clear coated them with spray and laced them except she doesn't like the button thing so I put a heavy duty snap on it! I like the way it turned out! Let the comments fly! Good or bad I need the advice!



The Snap Woot!

34  Re: hi im new and this is my necklace! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BlankGirl on: November 20, 2005 02:21:01 PM
i havent made any like that but if you make stuffed animals and used them as a sort of pendant i think that would be awsome!
let me know if you make any like that, id love to see it.
Hi everyone!

I recently stumbled upon a darling jewelry creator in both Nylon & Vogue magazines who makes these big, chunky, pearly, cartoony necklaces. I instantly wanted one, however, the thousand dollar price tag scared me off...

these are her works.. http://www.caterinazangrando.com/sito.htm

Once I saw these, they stuck in my mind, I love funky necklaces!

I also love Harry Potter, so I searched all over ebay for figurines but they were all so BIG! Then I found the little lego men.

I bid and bid and finally got a set, after 2 months. Why these are so popular is beyond me.

Regardless! I took apart several old pearl necklaces, bought some cheap sparkly beads from Walmart, some bigger funkier ones from a local bead shop (The Beadman!) and began the necklace of my silly dreams.

I just burned holes with nychrome wire through their little bodies and strung them up!

These are my results!



Necklace!



Toggle!

I have REALLY enjoyed seeing everyones lego works, they are great!

Heres a question...

has anyone made funky necklaces/earrings out of felt? i've searched around the forum but i havent seen anything!

Thanks for looking & thanks for posting such awesome things!  Kiss

thats a nifty idea there missy! I never even thought of that......you should think of something to do with pill bottles and stuff like that!!
So I'm on The Pill (you know the one), and I really like the shape of the pill packs and thought how sad it was that they were destined to sit in a landfill until the end of time, so I threw around some ideas for things I could make out of them. Well, they're too flimsy for belt buckles, and even though they looked kind of cool on my shoes, buckles down there went out with the tri-corner hat. They don't make good bracelets, or anklets, and they make a neat scarf ring, but the foil aspect tears a little too easily for that, so if you did decide to use them that way, you'd have to be really careful. Not that being careful is a bad thing, it's just something I'm incapable of, so. The scarf ring concept was right out.

This is what I ultimately came up with:


Now I just have to get the courage up to wear them in public.

37  Re: Too many seed beads and saftey pins= 1 bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BlankGirl on: November 20, 2005 10:27:27 AM
ive always wanted to make a bracelet like that. i was wondering how you get the end of the safety pin off.....tried so many times and could never get it.!!!

I had a ton of tiny seed beeds and about 1 million saftey pins...so I thought I'd make a bracelet.   It's a bit tedious to put all those beads on the saftey pins, but I think it was worth it.

38  Re: Chain maille bag with rune inlay in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by BlankGirl on: November 19, 2005 10:54:49 AM
can you do a tutorial of how to make the chain maille? i ythink your idea is awesome. my friend actually gave me the idea also but i just dont know how to put it together.
I can't believe what all materials you crafty people make bags out of! Cheesy

I guess I'll add mine to the list:



Made from 1/4" brass rings, and blue anodized aluminum for the inlays. It closes up tight with the leather cinch around the top, and I haven't found too much that will fall through the holes, either.... Smiley

Oh, and this one's big enough to hold a Pepsi or Coke can, whatever ya like!

Like it?  Cheesy

39  Re: 1st purse and a messenger-based diaper bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by BlankGirl on: November 18, 2005 06:24:53 PM
wow i really like the secret pockets.........could u possibly do a tutorial of that.(huge fan of anything having to do with pockets!!!

This is the 1st purse I ever made.
It's very utilitarian. The main part zips along that white curvy zipper, and there are hidden zippers in the side seams.


Hidden checkbook pocket open. This pocket is the exact size for my checkbook and a pen.


Chapstick/ID pocket. It's divided so the top part is for chapsticks and gum, the bottom is for IDs/credit cards/etc.

Since the main things I use from my purse are checkbook, chapstick, gum, IDs, so I put these things in their own pockets. I have used this purse for a few months now and it ROCKS. I never have to search for the things I use most.

Lesson learned, however: USE INTERFACING.



Messenger Based Diaper Bag...
I got involved on a craft swap on another forum. My swappee asked me to make a diaper bag, said she liked bold colors and messenger type bags. Here is what I came up with. Finished size is 11x14x6.


Closed up bag. Maroon corduroy on the flap....


which zips up to reveal a slashie pocket, and becomes.......


A removable wipe-clean changing pad.

The liner matches better IRL than in pics. The stripey fabric has maroon and tan and yellow and greenish stripes, so it actually does coordinate.

Let me know what you think!

(BTW you can right-click and select "View image" to see the pics bigger.)
