41  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / First attempt at a Jordy bag on: March 21, 2005 01:37:33 PM



I think it came out quite well.  I was really torn though on which of the fabric to use as the liner and which to use for the outside. The lining fabric was quite thin though, so I didn't think it would look good on the outside. Also this way I was able to add my own little detail with the fern leaves that I painted on there.

42  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Easy Beaded Hair Combs =) on: December 02, 2004 06:12:18 AM

I made these in about 10 minutes. I used Tulip brand glitter fabric paint(in Gold) for the glue to hold the beads on. I'm going to wear them to a formal dance and they match my dress very well. I was getting so frustrated trying to put the beads on the comb with fishing line, that's when I got the idea to just glue them on.

43  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I *heart* my new shirt! on: October 25, 2004 04:01:10 PM
Ok, that was pretty cheezy since the shirt I painted has hearts on it Smiley


I just took a cut out of a heart, put it on the shirt and painted around it. I used some cardboard and just wiped it off between colors. (The dark square toward the bottom is just a folder I had put in the shirt so the paint wouldn't bleed.)

I also did some tie-dying this weekend, here's a shirt that came out pretty cool.


I love craftster so much, everyone here is sooo talented!
44  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Making a capelet? on: October 12, 2004 12:26:01 PM
I'm going to a winter formal type party in December and I don't want to freeze in my dress, so I thought of making a capelet.
I'm not too great at using patterns or I'd go that route. It seems to me that I could make it like a big circle, cut out a little circle for the neck part, and cut it down to front and then hem all of that.
Is there a reason that it might not really be that easy? I just don't want it to drape funny. I want it go about to almost my elbow as far as length is concerned.

I have seen instructions for cloaks that use the circle principle, do they turn out well?
Thanks in advance!
45  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Paint sample mosaic... on: September 30, 2004 12:54:20 PM
I would like to make some wall art with paint samples (aka paint chips).
Do you gals think this would be best on canvas? Or maybe heavy poster board? I want to use a good glue to glue on them, and I don't want them to warp,like most paper does when I glue it (like with ModgePodge or Elmer's)
Any tips or trick are welcome =)
