Drilled a hole in the bottom of a small tea cup. Just enough to fit a bulb through it to go into the socket.
With light on:
Took me forever to make the hole, but I probably didn't have the best equipment. If anyone reading this knows a good way to make holes in porcelain, please let me know. It would be awesome to simply cut the hole out in a perfect circle, one could cut out pieces of the decoration and use for jewelry or buttons?
I've made one in dark blue fabric w/ small flowers as well, and have one more in the making, trying to change the straps to go over the shoulders and cover a regular bra strap, but it's hard to do right for some reason. The type of fabric and coulour/patterns make the dresses look different, so I don't have to feel tooo stupid wearing the same dress all the time
After seeing some delicious-looking pillows by Bonjour Mon Cousin (fabric with prints of chocolate and candy etc), I happened to munch on some chocolate chip cookies when I realized the plastic bag the cookies came in could become something similar...
The bag wasn't big enough to make a pillow (I wish!), but a coin purse!
Here's a cute little project made out of some red fabric scrap, paper, plastic, black ribbon, and a tag form a t-shirt (washing label?).
A key holder! This one is meant for the keys to a bicycle lock.
The motive is from a bicycle ad from an old magazine.
I used a small piece of velcro to keep it closed.
Funny detail: the key ring is fastened to a label from a t-shirt.
I also made one with paper from a phone book, meant for a house key. But I guess it'd be a bad idea to have your own name and address on it
All I did was layer equally sized: plastic sheet, paper, and fabric. Placed the tag for the key ring in the middle, and fastened all of it together by folding the ribbon around the edges and sewing it on. I sewed by hand to make the stitches less visible. The velcro is the kind with glue on the back, and I just cut it out so it's a small circle.
By using paper you can pretty much have whatever motive you want on the outside.
Any questions and comments welcome! Thanks for looking
Well, I'm not sure it's waterproof, but it's made out of 'waxed fabric' ( I have no idea what it would actually be called in English).
I bought the fabric, just a cheap left-over, about a year ago, and feel stupid for not making anything out of it yet! The fabric is kinda stiff, so it's easy to sew with, and I kept it pretty simple anyway.
I like the clean look, but feel like somethings missing...maybe a little strap sticking out as a loop in one end or something...any ideas?
Hello there! I'm so proud of my purse, so I need to show it off!!!
Its main materials are scratched vinyl records and an old curtain I got at a thrift store.
Detail of the 'rose' in the middle.
I wanted to use the vinyl as a material, and not mainly as a record, so I covered up the centre, bent and cut them. To sew the fabric to the records, I drilled holes in them, and heated the records up in an oven to cut and bend them.
If you have any ideas for changes I could make, especially to the handles (not liking them much, myself), let me know.
