31  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / My Pincushion Bag on: July 26, 2006 06:51:33 PM
So I saw this pincushion bag on here and thought it was the perfect thing to handle all my sewing junk. After messing around with the pattern I finally figured it out. I used the cutest pink and orange butterfly batik material for the outside. Enjoy!

The bag.

Closeup. My fav. material!

Inside. I knew I wouldn't have a problem filling it up. I thought it was going to be too big. Ha!

Closeup of the pincushion and needle book. I went my own route with the needle book, using the orange ribbon on the outside for it. I think it turned out rather spiffy....

Thanks for checking it out!
32  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Frog/Brown Polka dot..My first Jordy! on: July 15, 2006 09:00:24 PM
So I took some pointers from the Jordy tute and dove into making my own. I used some of my fav material and fell in love with the outcome! Its a bit small but its so cute!

My Bag

The inside. I used the velcro for a closure. I was going to use those metal snaps but one of them did not want to be put on the fabric and started to make a hole so I had to change directions. But it still came out great!
33  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Hello Kitty Pin Cushion on: July 15, 2006 08:56:19 PM
So I got tired of carrying my straight pins around in a box because they were never where I needed them. Enter a pin cushion. I've seen so many awesome ideas on here so I decided I could make my own. Enter my obsession with Hello Kitty. I tinkered around and here's the finished project.

Hello Kitty in all her glory

Hello Kitty acupunctured

This pin cushion was totally simple to make. I just copied a picture. The most time consuming was her bow. Now I'm sure if you're an anal person like me you want the details just right....and that cost me like two and a half hours or so. Her bow is pink felt with black thread stitching. It took forever but I'm totally pleased with the results! I just hate sticking pins in her face!
34  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Question: Swap Journal on: July 14, 2006 06:51:57 PM
Hey all I saw that some people on here made swap journals and I really want to make my own but I can't find a thread about what exactly is on the pages. Can someone who has one tell me what all is on the pages? I know its about the swap and who you're swapping with but I wanted to know exactly whats there. I'm sure its already been posted somewhere but I can't find it! Help a craftster out please? Thanks guys! I'm preparing for when I can start swapping. I can't wait!!
35  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / X-Files Sketchbook on: July 07, 2006 08:02:35 PM
I wanted to make my best friend, who is a total alien loving X-Files freak, a sketchbook and when I found this book at the thrift store I felt like I hit the jackpot!! I followed rosered's hardcover sketchbook tutorial and voila! The perfect gift!

I used ribbon to close it because I covered the spine on the inside with ribbon and it kept wanting to pop open! But I think it works well with it.

Oh and if you get a book with a lot of pages be prepared to be folding computer paper for a long while! Enjoy!
36  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Duct Tape and RENT on: June 29, 2006 07:10:32 PM
Hi all newbie here! This is my very first shot at a duct tape purse. I never actually thought about them until I found this forum a few days ago and I have to say you guys are amazing! I got my idea about a RENT purse from DTChick who if I may say makes some rockin' purses! I made this for a friend of mine who is obsessed with, and got me obsessed with, RENT. I thought about keeping it for myself...but decided to be nice. hehe But I will hush now and let you see it!

I also added a black duct tape rose for decor. I think I'm officially obsessed with duct tape!!
