1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Embroidered Doctor Who TARDIS Outer Space Purse 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.

ever since I got the book Altered Curiosities where they show wisdom teeth being used in some projects, I'm wishing I had my wisdom teeth (well, 3 of them.  one never would have made it and should be considered medical waste).  while I'm not huge on gold, I do like this piece.  very unique and a great way to turn something evil into something pretty.  Smiley

Altered Curiosities
looks fantastic. I'm putting it on my Books to Buy list.

You're lucky they gave it back to you.  I've had to have several teeth pulled and they refuse to give them back. After what I paid in dental fees, I figured those suckers should have been mine! Tongue

One of my friends was very surprised I got mine back as well. She said her dentist told her pulled teeth were considered "medical waste" and they legally weren't allowed out of the building. Which makes me wonder if the laws vary from state-to-state, or if my oral surgeon was just rebellious, haha. I'm fortunate to have gotten this one... in one piece, nonetheless.

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
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Frankenstein's Monster Face (FrankenFace) Bag 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.

Oh my goodness, these are so beautiful and amazing! I too, am an outer space enthusiast. I do outer space paintings on canvas, but with oil paint. You did such a good job with acrylic... I imagine it would be more difficult to get the colors as vibrant. Kudos!

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?
