1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / I love these bags!!! on: March 10, 2013 02:48:52 PM
Hi all! I'm Krisa and I'm a college student. I'm also a (sometimes) Pinterest addict! Lucky for me, I found these two tutorials on Pinterest that are quick and easy and adorable!

First off, being a busy college student, I have a TON of pencils, pens, highlighters floating around my backpack that need to be wrangled. So, when I found this tutorial http://sweet-verbena.blogspot.com/2011/10/charmed-pencil-pouch-tutorial-and-etsy.html I freaked! It's exactly what I need, not to mention super easy to make!

I wanted it to be a little funky and fun, hence the crazy multiple fabrics. I don't want my school supplies to be boring if I can make them fun! (Especially since I LOVE my classes this semester!)

After I got done with that, I realized that I have had two fabrics sitting in my sewing room since before Christmas. My best friend's birthday happens to be the day AFTER Christmas. I had made her a ton of cute gifts for Christmas, but wanted to make her something for her birthday as well. Long story short, I got really busy with school and life and such and didn't get to make her the bday gift I had planned on. Sooooo, I decided a few days ago, it's time I get on it and make something for her. My best friend has a ton of makeup and a ton of nail polish. So, I wanted to make her a bag that she can use for either of those.

I found this tutorial online- http://www.noodle-head.com/2010/10/scrappy-make-up-pouch-tutorial_20.html and thought it was pretty cute, although I didn't box the corners at the bottom, since I wanted her to have as much room as she needs to hold stuff!

Enter the land of really pretty colors and patterns!



I had some fabric left over, so I decided to make her a small bag for her makeup brushes. I used the same pattern that I had used for my pencil bag.



They aren't perfect, but I'm loving each of these bags, none-the-less! Thanks for looking!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Gryffindor, Slytherin, and Girlie scarves... on: January 17, 2009 01:29:15 PM
I made these years ago when I was first learning to knit. I look back on them now and wish I had done a few things different, but it was a learning process, so what can you do?

Gryffindor-This one took me forever to finish beacause I kept messing up and starting over. At one point, I was watching Michael Phelps (during his first olympics) and got distracted and just kept on knitting instead of changing colors.


Girlie-This one is my favorite scarf. It's super super super long. And I didn't want each color block to be the same length. That was actually more fun because instead of counting rows, I just went until I wanted to change colors. I could knit without really paying attention at all and it came out great! Plus, it's super warm.

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Snow White (pic heavy-ish) on: January 17, 2009 01:19:34 PM
I was on the color guard during high school. I loved going to competitions, aside from the fact that we had to be on the bus at 5am on a Saturday. The buses were never warm at 5 in the morning in mid-November. So, I decided to make myself a quilt that i could stuff in my bag and take along to keep me warm. Here's what I came up with.

4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Dinosaurs...(Pic heavy) on: January 17, 2009 01:11:52 PM
I made my first quilt when I was around 13. I picked out this horribly bright dino fabric to use because I wanted something crazy. I figured I would just give it away when I was finished, since it's a baby quilt and I wasn't overly fond of any of the fabrics. Once it was all done though, I couldn't give it up.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cold Sister+Christmas=Wrap or Scarf on: December 28, 2008 07:15:17 PM
My older sister is ALWAYS cold. So, for Christmas I decided to make her a wrap that she could fold over to use as a scarf as well. She loved it! She instantly put it on and tried to burrow down in her chair.

I'm looking a little messy in the pictures since I'd just gotten out of the shower.

6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Darth Vader Shirt on: December 24, 2008 08:35:53 PM
Hello all! Long time lurker, first time poster here!

So, my 5 yr. old nephew LOVES Darth Vader. He actually dressed as him for his last birthday. So, for Christmas, I decided he needed his own Darth Vader t-shirt. This actually became a huge hassle for me to make, but I'm pretty pleased with how it came out. My printer is out of ink, so I had to freehand my original picture. This is also my first tiime using freezer paper. I couldn't find an exacto knife, so I ended up using scissors to cut out the stencil. I didn't get the iron hot enough to make the freezer paper stick well. It was pulling up the whole time I was painting. (Excuse my pictures. I don't have a digital camera, so I took them on my sidekick.)

(Edited on 12/28/2008 to show pics)

Here's the front-


The green paint is supposed to glow in the dark, and I didn't want him to freak out if he saw that during the night. I didn't paint it very thick.

By the time I started on the back, I had found the exacto and had figured out how to make the freezer paper stick. It came out a lot cleaner than the front.

The word "Force" is in glow in the dark paint as well.

I'll try to get some action shots tomorrow after he opens it!
