81  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bunny Tote Bag on: May 09, 2007 06:17:11 PM
Here is what you do when you only have a small amount of a really cute fabric leftover from another project:  make a tote!

I made this for bongirl5 to carry her books and music.  The fabric is Kona Bay and has the cutest little bunnies on them--I had enough for the flap and a panel.  It is sewn onto plain black canvas like fabric.  There are a few pockets inside in case she wants to throw in her cell or a few small items as well.

82  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / ALL KIDS' CLOTHING INCLUDING RECONS IN THE KIDS'BOARD PLEASE on: April 15, 2007 03:55:32 PM
One of the reasons a Kid's Board was made was so that all of the items for children could be viewed in one area for those interested...

Superstitch and I are asking that even though some of the children's clothing might be recons, that you still post these on the Kid's Board--maybe down the road, if there are enough of these posts, a Recon for that board will be set up....

Superstitch will be modding the Kids' Board (she has kids, I don't!) Grin

Thanks for helping us make Craftster a place for everyone!

84  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Blythe Doll Clothes to Entice My Friend to Buy One... on: April 02, 2007 07:24:20 PM
A friend of mine, who sews, is thinking of buying a Blythe--I have been telling her what fun I have had making small clothes instead of human clothes, quilts, bags, etc...

So, girl--go get yourself one so we can exchange fabric scraps and make tiny clothes!!

Ruby Grace wearing her new hoodie! What a pain to make and the hoodie is for show only since her head is way too big and the hood looks goofy unless she wore it when I first made it to fit her head...

New party dress:


Fleece coat, hat and scarf:

Pirate skirt and top:

Convinced now? You know you want to... Cheesy

86  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / An experiment for me--paper CD holder into notecard holder on: February 28, 2007 07:07:01 PM
I normally don't do paper crafts but I needed a fast way to wrap a CD, so I made paper CD covers...and, after the CD is removed, the person can use the cover to store the notecards and envelopes I made as well!

Front--made of scrapbook stock, Japanese craft paper, raffia:

Matching notecards:

Additional covers:

These were very simple and fun to make so I might try some more projects!

87  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Striped Felted Purse that was almost a disaster! on: January 16, 2007 10:43:27 PM
I wanted to combine my love of making purses with my new skill of knitting... so I knitted a rectangle out of Pattons wool with no pattern...it looked kinda wide, but I thought it would shrink evenly--WRONG!!! It shrank lengthwise, but not in width!! What a goofy looking purse it was! 

So, I cut it down, folded over a flap, embroidered the edges, sewed on a vintage button and put in silky lining and --voila--a felted clutch size purse!!!

I made it for our wonderful mod kittykill...shhhh--don't tell her I sent her a goof that I saved!! ha ha

88  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Finally--I tried a beaded doll! on: October 28, 2006 11:00:10 PM
I received some really cute polymer clay faces from the bead doll goddess koi in a swap in July of 2006.

I finally had a chance to try my hand at making a little beaded doll for a special person.  I attached a pin in the back so it can be worn or attached to a bag, whatever... it is about 2 inches long--the face is the size of my pinky nail!!

I attached the curly yarn because it was going to someone who is a felting goddess...I must say, I have a lot of respect for you beading artists--this little guy took a lot of patience, a magnifying glass, and lots of pokes in my fingers!!

Anyway, I enjoyed trying and will now go back to bigger projects, ha ha!

89  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Archive of Featured Projects for Clothing: General on: October 10, 2006 09:29:17 PM
Amazing how many people love making original pieces of clothing! (even if a pattern was used!)  I am going to feature some of the items that I found to be fun, creative and fairly simple to make.  I might also feature something just plain awesome (I will be looking for your suggestions and comments to help me choose!).

Keep checking this thread--your item might appear here! To keep this current, I will be deleting older choices.

by MidoriMentality!

The fabric and the attention to detail really drew my eye to this piece. What is even more amazing is how young yet skilled this craftster is! I see lots of beautiful projects in her future!  MidoriMentality--what a fabulous job you did!
Check it out! (2/16/11)


OK--I am tired of drooling over the creations by member McAnaraks! It is time to show them off and give them the love they deserve!  Not only is this a recycled project, but it is also an art project, a sewing project and a make-your-own buttons project!!!

Read more at the link below...and be sure to look at the other posts as well!

I was stumbling around the boards when I found these awesome shoes!! They are so well done and they were made for someone else...I missed them when they were first posted but I think they deserve some more love!  Who knew shoes could make the entire outfit!  10/7/2010

With spring in the air, we all want to dance and enjoy the warm weather and the beauty of the outdoors...what better way to celebrate than to wear a colorful and fun patchwork circle skirt!  This one was made by Casey1201 for her swap partner pixieval.  Can you tell that pixieval loves her new skirt? Cheesy 5/19/2010

I picked this Totoro hoodie because it goes to show that sometimes you have to struggle to get what you want! Hard work and learning through mistakes can still get you to your goal! What a fun post to read--goofs and all--and the end result is exactly what skullseamstress wanted!  Check it out! (4/20/10)

by skullseamstress!

I love everything about this dress!  Made with unexpected materials (upholstery fabric!), great mix of textures and patterns, wonderful color selection and wearable! What a cute complete outfit! love it!

by goonie!!!


I guess once a hippie, always a hippie...I love this skirt and the applique is a detail that really makes this skirt special!  A lot of care went into making this for a swap partner! Wonderful in my eyes! (7/24/08)


It is summer ,and, where I am in the Eastern part of the USA, it is stinking HOT!!!  Well, so it this wonderful bathing suit!  I love the pattern, the fit, and I think it is sexy and modest at the same time! Check it out! (7/7/08)


I love it when people find inventive ways of making clothing special and "one-of-a-kind"...I guess that is why we all love to craft!  I never knew that flocking existed--I mean, now I do and see so many ways to be able to use this technique...try it and please post your stuff...so cute and easy!(02/17/2008)


This is not sewn clothing but it was so awesome that I thought it would be of interest to every seamstress!  We spend so much time in our sewing spaces, why not add some more fun! I also liked her idea of making a spool of thread shape...hmmm..I love this! (02/17/2008)


Innovative, sexy, and a great detail--so much work went into this gorgeous and unique dress: (12/22/2007)

Great score on fabric, mod style, and fun craftster--what more is there?  This is really cute and fun! And this gal sews up a storm!(11/3/07)

It is one thing to go buy fabric and a pattern and another to dye your own fabric and make your own pattern...I love renegade girls that take chances and come up with beauties like this! (10/09/07)
