11  Various bead woven rings in Beads: Completed Projects by homebunnyj on: January 09, 2007 03:00:03 PM
Some of these are from online instructions and some I just winged it; I don't really remember which are which. Embarrassed

Actually, there are two or three that are strung on memory wire. I'm sure you can tell which ones.

12  Brick stitch earrings, vintage bugle beads in Beads: Completed Projects by homebunnyj on: January 09, 2007 02:55:24 PM
Guess the subject line says it all.  Cheesy The bugle beads came from a beaded purse reportedly from the sixties. It was all to pieces, but I did salvage the beads.

13  Macrame earrings and bracelets in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by homebunnyj on: January 09, 2007 02:48:37 PM
Here is a pair of crochet-cotton macrame earrings with faux pearls which I made some time ago:

Here are a pair of waxed linen and a pair of hemp earrings, both with glass beads:

And a hemp and shell pair:

And a hemp and glass bracelet:

And a hemp and polymer-clay-bead bracelet:

That's about all the pics I have of macrame jewelry I've done. I have this cool green-crochet-cotton and chinese yellow turquoise micro-macrame necklace and earring set I did, but I can't find it anywhere. If I find a pic I'll post it since I consider it my best piece.

Thanks for looking.

Better late then never, I hope!  Embarrassed

Here is a pic of my candy earrings:

 Embarrassed You can see that through frequent wearings I have broken the stem off one of my lollipops.  Sad  I don't have another one, so will have to figure out a repair. I like your lollipops much better than mine.  Smiley

15  My t-shirt recon! Extra long with tummy room! in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by homebunnyj on: December 04, 2006 05:31:16 PM
This is a shirt made from one of my old tees (top part) and a tee from the men's department at Walmart. (I found their women's tees to be too cutesy.) It really isn't see-through-thin, it's just the flash on my handy-dandy duct-tape body double.

I ruched the side seams (Thanks for all the inspiration, Miss Tee, dearie!)  Kiss
The neck of the men's tee makes the bottom parts of the keyhole openings.
I think I'll ruch the sleeves too.
I think the front of the yoke part needs a little something, but I don't know what. What do you think?
I traced the skull and bones with glow-in-the-dark paint. I thought about going over the letters with bronze glitter paint just to make it a bit more 'there'.

Anyway, it seemed to me that putting the top part together the way I did allowed for better bust area shaping. And using a men's xxxl tee (I'm a size 18/20) made it possible to have plenty of room around the tummy. Plus, moving the neckline down to bust level and using a yoke made it possible to have the extra length I wanted to camouflage my tummy bulge.

I sure hope I'm coherent enough, I'm absolutely flat-out tired right now.
Well, let me know what you think, if ya don't mind. Thanks Smiley

16  Crochenit baby blankie in Crochet: Completed Projects by homebunnyj on: November 08, 2006 08:16:23 AM
I found this in the bottom of my yarn stash waiting to be edged, so I edged it. I started it about four years ago. It worked up quickly on a double-ended hook I made from a dowel (prolly about a size P) and is made of some vintage acrylic I got in a humongous bag of yarn my dad sent me.

detail pic:

I may never crochenit again  Roll Eyes although it is exceedingly fluffy and plush

17  Beanie for son in Crochet: Completed Projects by homebunnyj on: November 08, 2006 08:09:37 AM
Here it is:

It's made in Paton's Classic Wool. Ds also knits and always has a few skeins of paton's classic on hand in 'manly' colors.  Cheesy  I went to make up a couple more and found I had misplaced the printout of the free pattern; so I can't really tell which website I got it from at the moment.... I printed out so many beanie patterns before finding the one I wanted to make. I ended up adding an extra increase round and a couple extra length rounds as well, and left off the slip stitch edging since it made the brim tight and rigid.

I was wearing a similiar one a couple weeks ago when my hubby and I were out and got a request for a black one from the bartender. Hmmm.... Wonder how much beer we could get in trade........ Grin

19  There's something about an adult in an acorn hat... in Knitting: Completed Projects by homebunnyj on: November 08, 2006 07:57:43 AM
... that makes me giggle.....

The adult is me.
I made this a couple of years ago. No pattern, just winged it. It's actually large-kid-size, but very stretchy.

20  Maxim Magazine (somewhat risque but not x-rated) **PIC HEAVY!!** in Halloween Costumes by homebunnyj on: October 31, 2006 08:03:35 AM
My friend Nancy had been begging me to dress up for Halloween with her. I really didn't want to, but I told her I'd make her costume. She said, "OK, what should I go as?" and I blurted out, "Well, last night as I went to sleep I had this brainstorm.... You could go as a magazine." A magazine? Specifically, a sexy magazine. Not quite porn... but hot.
Within ten minutes she was on the phone with everybody she knew spreading the word... talk about excited! So now I was in the spotlight... had to do a really good job.  Roll Eyes

I made her a black mini (just pinned the fabric around her, cut to fit and sewed), she chose pages out of some issues of Maxim Magazine, I sewed clear vinyl pockets for each page, and attached four to each side of the mini skirt. The pages were attached along the left edge and left free to be turned just like in a magazine. Each one has a little Velcro tab on the upper right backside corner to hold it to the skirt.

I reconned a t-shirt, removing the sleeves and cutting the front into a low scoop neck. I covered a Maxim cover in vinyl and sewed it onto the front of the shirt. I cut the back low and cut ties all the way down, about an inch and a half wide, for a sexy snug fit.

I made earrings,  cutting black M's from polymer clay, then painting it with silver sparkle nail polish after baking. I baked a wire hanging loop into the clay. I strung a black bead and two sparkly ones, added the M, and voila! matching earrings.

I macramed a black choker with three dangles. It ties in the back and the ends hang down... very sexy, actually... got a lot of comments.

A pair of black fishnets and some high heels and Nancy's costume was complete! She looked good. There were many younger, very cute girls at the party, but guess who got all the attention.  Grin Guys couldn't keep their eyes off her skirt; they just had to come up and turn the pages. (My friend is shy about talking to guys, and I thought if this didn't bring her out of her shell, nothing would. She shone. She had a great time. We won second prize with this costume, and some people took her picture at Denny's afterward. It was great. A definite, resounding success.)

Without further ado, the pics:
(My hubby took them, and we had problems with glare off the vinyl, so hopefully you can see the details okay.)







Hope you like it.  Grin

***EDITED TO GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE: I had seen annrkey's porn skirt here at craftster some time back (Don't look, Ethel!!!-- corny seventies reference Tongue ), however it is constructed in a much different manner, it looks pleated and is made with packing tape, if I remember correctly. Thanks, annrkey!!
