1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Posting a Friend's First T-Shirt Recontruction on: August 19, 2006 12:34:46 PM
Co-Worker of mine claims not to be very crafty  Roll Eyes
But check out her very first t-shirt reconstruction!
She followed a tute and used extra material from a bed sheet for the straps and edges! I think this top is really well done!

Her craftster user name is VeganLady ... so if you see her around, let her know what you think! I'll let her in on this post.
Hope she doesn't get mad at me for showing off her stuff!!  I've been threatening to do it for awhile now.  Grin
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / My Drawings and Sketches (many images) on: July 17, 2006 09:24:13 PM
I  just started posting stuff on Craftster. Thank goodness for an *art* forum.  I thought I would show off some of the drawings and sketches that I have done.

Just to let you know, I can't draw many things from the top of my head. I look at pictures and basically copy them, and usually draw them much bigger than the original picture.  Roll Eyes


copied from a picture in a magazine using charcoal - *charcoal = messy*  Tongue


a sketch of a friend from a photo done with pencil


frog done in colored pencil, copied from a photo found on the internet


more frogs in colored pencil! I love froggies ...


didn't think I would draw more frogs, did you? Done in pencil.


this one is not complete, but its a sketch on my niece on my dad's lap. In pencil.


a sketch of my grandmother taken from an old photo done in charcoal pencil.


sketch of a pin-up girl, but didn't quite copy it exactly. I was fed up trying to draw in her face, so instead I threw her hair over it! Artistic License rules!

I have many more sketches/drawings and even paintings that I have done. But I thought the million pictures I posted in this thread will be enough for now Wink   Cheesy
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / New to quilting ... my attempts! on: July 17, 2006 09:03:10 PM
I love quilts! The only ones I own are the ones that I made myself. The time and the patience (which I have none of most of the time) is what discourages me from starting another.

Ok ... so my first quilt was made without any instruction, just thought I would give it a try (like every other craft I do). Haha ... you can laugh at it, my cats sleep on it now!  Wink



So after that little disaster I thought I would buy myself a book on HOW TO quilt. Ahh! And then I made the following:



See what happens when you follow directions? Still isn't *perfect* but I love it just the same. I pieced the quilt all together over a year ago ... I am still working on hand quilting the pieces together. It just takes forever and so I haven't worked on it in awhile. I use the blanket to snuggle with though!
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Leather Wrist Cuffs from Old Belts! on: July 16, 2006 03:33:11 PM

I really love my wrist cuffs and wear them all the time. I make them from old belts that I either have at home or purchase at the thrift store. Here is a picture of the first one I made. 



I added the star (its a button that I secured underneath) and 2 circular studs as extra decoration. I closed the cuff by adding 4 grommets (2 on each end) and weaving in elastic string in a color to match (in a "X" pattern) so I just slip it on and off!
