321  Miniature Rose Topiary in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by HSG on: January 06, 2008 02:57:05 PM
Made this topiary for my sisters bathroom. It turned out well for my first time with this kind of project, and looks pretty in her bathroom. The whole thing is about 12 - 14 inches tall.







Thanks for looking. Smiley

322  Bagsket for Dylan in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by HSG on: January 06, 2008 08:47:11 AM
My niece's son turns 4 this month, so I wanted to make something for him. Saw this bag/basket here on Craftster, and was completely taken with it. It combines two great bags for a functional multi-use bag.

Used denim and an old chambray shirt along with some grosgrain ribbon. Then used fabric paint for the letters in his name. So without further ado here is the bag for Dylan's art supplies. Smiley





Supplies


Loaded up! This thing is huge inside, and could hold twice this amount.


C&C always welcome, and encouraged. Smiley

Here is an extreme close-up. They look like patent leather.

327  PVC Pipe + Buttons = Napkin Rings in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by HSG on: December 20, 2007 02:40:06 PM
Found these napkin rings made of buttons when I was searching for something else, and loved them!
BUtton Napkin Rings.

This is my take on them:


Needing 12 meant I had to find another way to make them. Because sewing buttons on 12 loops of elastic was not happening. Enter PVC pipe.  Wink

Quick and easy project!
Supplies: buttons, glue, PVC pipe


All glued:


Painted (spray paint, too!):


Done!




The look great painted all black and shiny. The texture of the buttons really make them interesting to look at.
The variations on this are endless. You could leave the buttons au natural, or have them all one color. Smiley

wow Shocked that is amazing!  I didn't realize that the top was all beaded in the first picture! How did you get the beads to stick? glue?  agian, she is just beautiful!  great work!!
Thank you!:)

And the beads were all glued on one at a time with Aileen's. I used a hat pin to attached them instead of my fingers. That allowed me to get the beads placed exactly as I wanted.

I hesitated to use the lace, but then I thought it would be a nice way to make the project more special. Not to mention if I keep putting off using it, then it will just sit there. Which is a shame, I think.

329  Victorian Mannequin (Lots of Pictures) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by HSG on: December 16, 2007 12:35:05 PM
This project originally started out as a mosaic project, but once I got to the skirt portion of the mannequin it took on a life of its own.

Completed her today, and there were a few firsts in this project. The first time I've sewn period clothes, and the first time I've sewn doll/mannequin clothes. OY VEY!!!

The lace used in the gown was made by my Grandmother. She was 96 when she passed away, and that was 2 years ago. Smiley

Instant gratification image:


Here are some of the images, but for the complete project check here for photos & commentary.

The arms are not attached because they do not fit properly. To make them work I would have to add clay or something else. Save that for another time.

Comments, suggestions and questions are always welcome! Smiley

330  Doll Mannequin Victorian Project (Lots of images) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions by HSG on: December 14, 2007 03:48:33 AM
Warning: Long post ahead.  Smiley

This project originally started out as a mosaic project, but once I got to the skirt portion of the mannequin it took on a life of its own. Now I've got some questions for how to finish off her gown, and all my period clothing research is not bringing the answers I need.

Here are the before shots:






Beginning Stages (Mosaic):










Perspective shot:


Sewing Begins:






Bustle:


This is the point she is at now:




Now for my questions:
I'm not sure how to finish off her skirt waist. Should I add a bow, flowers, beads, drape, etc.? I've never tackled period clothes, or doll clothes for that matter. OY!!!  Roll Eyes

Any comments, suggestions or questions are extremely welcome. Smiley
