1  Embroidered Doctor Who TARDIS Outer Space Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by missannapants on: July 05, 2013 06:07:44 PM


I haven't done much embroidering before, but I knew I wanted to make a TARDIS purse, and it seemed like a viable option to make it work. Not perfect, but not bad! I used the zig zag setting on my sewing machine to make the stitching stand out more. The lettering is all hand sewn.





It has a zippered interior pocket as well as a zipper on top. Zippers pain me, but I usually find it worth the effort when my stuff isn't always falling out of my bag Cheesy



I really love the outer space fabric! I need to get more of it.

2  Wisdom Tooth Necklace: Glitter-Style in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by missannapants on: February 14, 2013 12:42:21 PM
I recently had to endure the agony of a rogue wisdom tooth coming in to my mouth. I had the other three removed nine years ago, but the fourth just now decided to make an appearance. Not fun and quite painful. Anyway, after I had it removed, they sent the tooth home with me. Which gave me an idea: turn that evil tooth into something cool!



I got the idea for a necklace. I knew I wanted to make it glittery--I've been really into glitter lately.

Before glitter:


After glitter:


I coated the tooth in Mod Podge and then dipped it in glitter. After it was dry, I sealed it with another coat of Mod Podge.

At this point, I wasn't sure of how to turn it into jewelery. I tried wrapping wire around it, but it looked tacky. I decided to try resin; I had been wanting to try it out for awhile, anyway. I bought a resin starter kit and followed the directions. Pretty simple, just takes a lot of patience waiting it out while it dries!



The starter kit I bought came with a small drill, which I used to make a small hole to put jewelery hardware through. I added some cord, and done!





I'm very pleased with the result. It's so strange that that thing was still in my mouth about a month ago Tongue

3  Frankenstein's Monster Face (FrankenFace) Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by missannapants on: September 18, 2011 04:21:22 PM
I've had the idea to make a Frankenstein's Monster-inspired bag for awhile, especially after making my Angry Face Bag: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=374217.msg4407812#msg4407812

After getting distracted by a number of other projects, I decided it was finally time to make this guy! And what better time than nearing Halloween? By the way, I freaking love Halloween. Favorite holiday ever.



Like Angry Face Bag, his mouth is a functional pocket!



He's made from soft green fleece and vintage fabric for the lining.



There's another functional pocket on the inside. I love having lots of pockets.



And there you go! Happy early Halloween, y'all.

4  Angry Face Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by missannapants on: February 27, 2011 08:19:43 PM


Basically, this bag was a fun experiment. I had the idea of using a zipper for a mouth, and ran with it. I think the coolest part of this bag is that the mouth is also a functional pocket!

The facial features are hand-stitched, but the rest is machine sewn. There is another hidden pocket on the inside--I like having certain items close at hand.

The blue fabric is a nice, soft, old corduroy fabric I inherited from my grandmother, and the interior is a sturdy striped fabric I found at a thrift store. The facial features are made from scraps. The eyes are actually planet shapes from outer space fabric I had lying around. Comments/criticism?

5  Dia de los Muertos skull painting in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by missannapants on: February 27, 2011 07:32:23 PM


When I found this ovular canvas at the craft store, I knew I wanted to paint some sort of iconic-style portrait with a faux frame. I just wasn't sure of what at the time. Lately I've been interested in Mexican folk art, (I love the colors, the subjects, and the themes) so I decided on doing this dia de los muertos-inspired skull.

I used acrylic paints (I prefer oils, but acrylics are more house-friendly for me--mineral spirits make me woozy). I do really like the metallic gold acrylics, though! The photos don't really portray its shinyness. When I was done painting, I had the idea to use some fake gems I had left over from another project. I super glued them on the "frame," the hat flower, and the eyes. I decided to call this painting "In Limbo" because of the heaven and hell symbols on the right and left of the skull.

Overall, this was a fun project I think turned out pretty well. What do you think?

6  Pirate Kitty Sling Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by missannapants on: August 09, 2010 10:12:44 AM
So, I found an amazing kitty cat t-shirt at a thrift store for 98 cents! Sadly, I didn't take a before picture. I added some sharpie marker to make Pretty Kitty into Pirate Kitty, used sweet skull-and-crossbones fabric for the lining, did a few hours of cutting and sewing, and AHOY! We have Pirate Kitty sling bag.




The design is very SPARKLY! I love it.


I also added an interior pocket and a button & loop closure.



Comments/constructive criticism?

7  Epic Painting in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by missannapants on: July 19, 2010 11:28:31 AM
My goal for this painting was to create the most epic painting I could muster up. I think I fulfilled the goal, except that I think it would be much more epic if I had used a gigantic canvas. (The one I used is about 16 x 20 inches.)

8  The Two Fridas (with Robot Minions) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by missannapants on: July 19, 2010 11:19:50 AM
This amazing post jogged my memory:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=350638.0

I did these two paintings last year. The second painting is a self-portrait of myself as Frida. The robots in the latter are collaged on, and the rest is oil paint.


Inspired, of course, by The Two Fridas:
