21  I *heart* pic bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by jmesdiylounge on: June 09, 2005 08:38:55 PM
I saw a bag like this some where I am not sure where...

But I decided to make my own

I made the Appliqus with felt and reproduction calico prints.

The pocket is clear to insert a picture of your love!

It was my first time using wooden handles but it turned out cute, if you over look the fact that it is really deep. I know my best friend will love it though.

22  Re: Whrere to buy Livestrong style bracelets for DIY or crafting in Crafty Charitable/Social Causes by jmesdiylounge on: June 09, 2005 07:46:46 PM
Okay So I just made one

Here is how I did it.

1. Find a bracelet. I got mine from here for free.


2. Fit it around something, I used an Altoids Sours tin (It has a nice flat surface, and the bracelet fit perfectly.
3. use a Sharpie to write your saying. (DIY or DIE...What ever you want!)
4. I added scissors and knitting needles cause they are cute, but deadly! (Hee Hee)

Then You are done!

Hey crafty people

So here was my last Crafty idea that took over in the shoe isle at Walmart.

I saw those canvas shoes for $3.00 that remind me of old ladies with the elastic across the bridge. Check these here http://www.stockshoes.com.tw/leisure/ladies/CS582-2011.jpg

And I said (to myself of course!) "Hey I bet you can remove that elastic part!"

and upon closer inspection the elastic was just sewn in, so with my handy seam ripper they became Ballet/sneaker shoes.

Close-up where i ripped the seam

On the Blue ones I sewed a poka-dot ribbon tie

I haven't decided what to do with the pink ones yet!!!. I am going to get more of the shoes because they are cheep and really cute done up!!!!

Have Fun, Jaime

24  My Last Second Valentine Clutch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by jmesdiylounge on: February 19, 2004 12:36:09 AM
So here is what I was making instead of drying my hair, so I left too late to go for the Girls only Dinner (But I didn't miss the girls partying at the bar, dancing until our feet were crying!!)

It is a clutch with a zipper and Ball chain handle based on the square bottomed purse tutorial everyone is so hip on!

(I had to undo it twice to fix the zipper! I am always putting them in upside down!!)

I cut out little hearts from random samples of fabric that some random uniform company sent me. then I zig-zag stitched them to the denim and houndstooth base.

Then I assembled the rest.

Oh Smart girl in the house.

I made a book bag out but I hate it! I will post the pic!

I haven't used it yet. I Reeks of E6000 and it has glue marks and it holds nothing (My Cell phone keeps falling out!)


Edited to add Yucky pics

I Used Fran Drescher's book Enter Whining

WOw in the pics it seems big and the sides aren't too puffy but in reality the books spine is barely an inch wide.

So my Tip would be Look for a book that is wide enough to hold your stuff and is cool looking!

I love curbside finds. I love to imagine what they might become.

Here is a cool chair I found for free, and worked my crafty magic on. With my kitty who was also free, but not a roadside find.
