11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / new green bag with bow on: November 09, 2007 10:47:08 PM
Finished this one up yesterday. The fabric is real vintage era, I loved it when i saw it. I decided to add big inner pocket and front bow. I made the strap wide so it's comfy on the shoulder.

The bow looks awkward in this picture, but it is even. Tongue



12  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Pillow passion on: October 27, 2007 05:45:35 PM
I love pillows and love making them. I made them fairly boring and simple so they match with anything really. From L to R: Blue flannel feeling fabric, Dotted satin, Aqua Satin and polished cotton?, and Tan textured faux leather. The triangle one I made a fabric covered button for the centre. Hope you like!

13  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Curtain Frenzy! on: October 19, 2007 08:10:15 PM
Okay, so i hate the white blinds that came with our house so what better way for an excuse to go buy fabric and make curtains!

The bathroom curtains. I used an existing plain curtain that was much too long and gathered it then added white/brown bows at the bottoms:


Craft Room. There are two of these actually and they cover tall full length windows. I just combined 2 fabrics I previously had to add some color to the room.


Dining room. I found this sheer fabric discounted at $1.50 a yard and hadto get it, then I found .99 plain white cotton fabric and layered the 2 fabrics.


Hubby's guy room needed something to cover his closet area since there's no door, so he picked out the fabric he wanted. It's modeled on the floor since the bar still needs to be installed.

14  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Rag/T-shirt rug along! on: September 23, 2007 10:49:57 PM
I've been wanting to try a rag/tshirt rug for the longest time. We have this spare room in our basement with a concrete floor just begging to be covered up with one of these. I saw this simple tute on sewing one with just 3in x 6in strips of tshirt material and wanted to try it out except larger:
Sewn tshirt strips: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art46899.asp    &     http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=8423765
Braided Tshirt rug: http://yesimadethat.blogspot.com/2007/06/braided-rag-rug.html    &    http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog.jsp?CATID=cat13851&PRODID=xprd73361

I've seen other tutes aswell in terms of crocheted, knitted and braided ones too, doesn't matter which way you choose just as long as we all recycle our goods in the end, right?  Grin
 
I've already started cutting shirts up and let me tell you the cutting part is time consuming and a mens medium shirt, doesn't look like alot of strips so I'm guessing you're gonna need atleast 8-10 shirts.

 Anyone else want to join in and get rid of some spare clothes too? 
15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Big and outdated shirt recon on: August 04, 2007 02:59:44 PM
So basically it was a 1X non-fitted blouse, ruffle cuffs(eww)..... too out of date for me basically. So I cut it all up, made a yolk style top with the cuffs as short ruffle sleeves instead. Then i made ties for the back so it's even more fitted when tied up.

AFTER



16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Dress collared shirt to party shirt woohoo! on: July 14, 2007 08:46:24 PM
Wish i took the before shot but picture this: a regular long sleeved, button up, collard business shirt in this bold formal fabric. Seems abit contradicting imo lol. So I turned it into something that suits the fabric and that I'm more likely wear. I added the extra band that goes around the top and the black bow that ties in the front. I was surprised how the recon barely even looks like the original shirt. The fabric is this irredescent purple/blue/pink color. Comments?


Hard-to-take back shot
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / printed top on: July 14, 2007 08:37:44 PM
Well this top was created from an original idea I had inmind that i modified as I went along. It actually overlaps on the front(kind of kimono style) but the pattern is so busy it's hard to tell in the picture. The sleeves are cap sleeves that are nice and flowy. I made it from scratch top to bottom, with the grey being jersey knit and the floral being vintage fabric picked up from a garage sale. Total cost $2.50 yippee! Golly i hate taking self pictures. :S


18  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Is there a list of swap flakers? on: July 14, 2007 02:33:53 PM
I don't know where to put this topic but I'll try it here. Just wanted to know is there list of flakers and even a list for personal swap flakers in particular? I'm asking b/c I'd want to add a name onto that list. Yes I realize participating in personal swaps is at my own risk and Mods can't necessarily prove if i didn't recieve a package or not but I feel when a flaker is boldly advertising in their sig that they want to do personal swaps and is a flaker then the rest of Craftster should be warned, no? :S
19  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Retro Orange messenger bag on: July 14, 2007 11:31:38 AM
 I finished this bag for my shop yesterday and it still needs a good ironing but I had to take pic out of excitment. It has official vintage orange floral fabric on the inside aswell as a matching applique on the outside. The outside is an off-white denim/corduory type feeling fabric. Comments?

20  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Leftover Supplies and Crafts ongoing Swap? on: May 26, 2007 09:30:38 PM
Okay I know there's similar de-stashing ongoing swaps like "the Ongoing Offer what you have swap" or the "Shop the Sweat shop" but this kinda combines both. People will make a list that's composed of atleast 5 items: crafted finish or unfished items, craft supplies, fabrics or whatever findings that can be used for crafts. What makes this swap different from the previous two is you don't have to wait to claim from the last list posted (like with "Offer what you have swap") and your items don't have to be just craft items (like with the STS). So basically it's the exact same process as the STS(you start out with 3 claims, once your shop hits 7 claims your closed) except you can include craft supplies too, not just crafted items and the first person to claim(via pm) gets the item. You choose what your items equal in terms of a claim(like choose 3 for 1 claim, 1 claim each, etc..) but nothing priced higher then 1 claim per item each just make it easy. This will be a great way to recieve and get rid of craft supplies and crafted items(that don't have to be made by you either!). Almost like browsing through a bunch of classified ads with items for free, woo hoo!

Anybody else want to destash their craft stuff and give it to a more appreciating home? I sure have a box full I could get rid off!
