61  Wine Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by twilight on: April 03, 2004 12:25:42 PM
I made a wine bag as part of a Christmas present for my mother in law and her new husband.

Their present was some local New Mexico wine, the wine bag and two wine glasses I glass etched hearts onto.

To make the wine bag:

Cut out two rectangles that are a bit taller than the wine bag and overlap around it. For the outside I used scrap upholstery fabric and silkly fabric for the inside.

Sew together inside out, leaving a hole big enough to turn right side out. Hand stitch the hole closed.

For the bottom cut two squares out of the fabric slightly larger than the bottom of the bottle. Sew together right side out, having raw edges stick out.

Sew square to one end of the tube.

Trim off the square corners making the bottom piece circular.

Turn bag right side out. Braid a tie out of matching yarn and hand stitch at seam.

Slip wine into bottle. Voila!

A friend gave me a table. It was sort of beat up so I thought I'd redo it.  

First I put down pages from the Nation. Then I laid down lots of pics that reflected different parts of my life. I love the way it turned out!

63  Telephone Wire Outfit in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by twilight on: April 03, 2004 12:44:09 AM
Last year I made an outfit out of telephone wire for the Taos and Santa Fe Recycled Fashion Shows.

I took a seam ripper and ripped open telephone wire. Inside were all these wires in bright colors. I seperated the greens, blues and browns.

I created the design as I crocheted. The skirt was made in four panels then sewn together with more wire. I made the cups of the top and then crocheted straps to connect them. (one around the neck and one for the back)

For my hair I took more wire and braided my hair around it to form the circles. Then I wired old cell phones that I had taken apart into my hair.

In Santa Fe I won first prize!

65  scarves and skully sweater in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by twilight on: April 02, 2004 11:01:21 PM
I made go go garter scarves for my neices this past Christmas. I used multiple strands to get the varigated effect.

Here's my version of the skully sweater. My husband wanted it plain and a bit longer. This is my first sweater.

I'm hooked on decoupage! My latest projects have been containers for pens, cat treats and crochet hooks.

67  Cat Shelf in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by twilight on: April 02, 2004 07:03:07 PM
This winter I put plastic over the windows to keep out drafts. The cat wasn't too happy about this since it meant he couldn't sit in the windows. So I made him a cat shelf. Everything's recycled except the brackets.

I started with some scap plywood, some quilt stuffing, some salvaged upholstery squares and some shelf brackets. Upholstery worked best since my cat likes to scratch the fabric.

Sew the upholstery squares together big enough to wrap over plywood. (Prana is already showing interest.)

Next staple quilt stuffing onto plywood with staple gun.

Wrap upholstery around plywood and staple underneath.

Screw brackets to bottom and to wall.

Cat tested and approved!
