11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / wallet repair/makeover on: October 02, 2006 02:25:24 PM
Yes, I read the rules and this cheap wallet was actually bought two years ago.
But according to bad quality I totally destroyed it. It had just a few seams and the rest was glued...

Im a greedy person, so I decided to disassemble the wallet and repair it.

I changed the black lining (too many holes) into a light grey and added new transparent foils. The thin old leather was in a lousy condition, but I had nothing else.  I started reconstructing it and it was a real mess (22 parts...).


The thin old leather looks like crap now... Well, I call it a "raw vintage-look"...most important are durable seams!





I dont know, if this is okay for the challenge...if not, Im just showing off.

Meine lieben Craftsterinnen,

wir wissen doch alle, weshalb wir hier sind... Es findet sich nicht viel hnliches mit einem ".de" am Ende.
Deshalb frag ich Euch mal, welche Bloggs, Seiten und Foren ihr empfehlen knnt.
Kleine Anmerkung: Bitte keine Bastelelfe etc., so alt sind wir ja nun auch nicht und Diddl-/QVC- Grukarten basteln ist doof...

Meine Ausbeute ist mehr als bescheiden:

Ich htte auch gerne einen Blog. Habt Ihr Erfahrungen damit? Lieber deutscher oder amerikanischer Anbieter?

Its quick, cheap and easy.
For my caps I used some fashion magazines and cut out leopard prints.
The caps are glued on a piece of ribbon.

16  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / glitter leather charms (tut) on: September 29, 2006 04:03:49 PM
I found a great site with handmade jewelery two weeks ago. Accidentally I deleted the link. Sorry.  Sad
There are bracelets and safety pin brooches with teardrop- and lightning-shaped charms made of colored leather.
A great inspiration.

I had a rest of white leather, so I decided to paint it with nailpolish.




For the glittered ones I used white nailpolish and dipped the charm into glitter.





The dried charms:



17  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / revamped vans on: September 29, 2006 03:12:18 PM
Sorry, I have no "before"-picture. Maybe youve already seen these shoes. The checkered skulls have been pink.
After a year I was sick of it and painted them black (fabric paint).



Yeah, it was a torture...I used an extra fine brush with lots of patience.
