1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Brown and purple beaded bracelet with fringe on: August 16, 2008 10:03:38 AM
Here is a bracelet I made using the square stitch. It's my new favorite technique, I have many ideas for more bracelets and other things.  Smiley

   

   

Close up of the fringe:


Thank you for looking!  Cheesy
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / New bag for Spring... for me! on: March 26, 2008 04:29:27 PM
I made a bag for myself! It's all mine. That almost never happens, it's always for other people!  Tongue I made the pattern, I wanted something big enough to carry all my stuff plus a book, and a long strap to go across my torso to make it more comfortable, I walk a lot and I hate when handles slip down. Both the top and the pocket close with magnetic snaps and I added a little appliqu. It's fully lined and the outside is interfaced.

The only thing is that it's pulling a bit at the snap closure on the pocket, but I really love it anyway. I had a few compliments on it, that's always very nice. Smiley

So here it is:







Thanks for looking!  Cheesy
3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / I think we need a new Harry Potter swap... on: January 08, 2008 04:39:15 PM
We need more Harry Potter goodness don't you all think?  Smiley

Do you guys have any idea for a new swap? I was thinking maybe a wishlist swap where everyone makes a wishlist of HP items they'd like to get. Or maybe a theme? Like Dark vs. Light... or Hogwarts... or a specific profession or school subject.

I'd love to hear what you all think.  Smiley

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Feedback question on: April 29, 2007 09:20:52 AM
How long does it take for the feedback to appear in the profile? I'm organizing my first swap and I thought I'd put my feedback IN PROGRESS first to figure it all out now that the sign ups are started. I'm using myself as a guinea pig.  Cheesy

But I did it last night and nothing changed. The feedback isn't in my profile and the name of the swap isn't in the list of swaps. So that's why I'm wondering how long it takes for feedback to appear in profiles. I'm worried I did something wrong.  Sad

9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / I want what I can't make swap on: April 21, 2007 07:36:56 PM
A swap where people recieve items they want but don't have the skills to make. Like someone who usually knits getting a handmade journal. Or someone who makes jewelry getting a tote bag.

Asking people who join to make a wishlist of what they want and then listing what they can make and choosing partners accordingly. Maybe even including a DIY kit about a craft you can't make could be interesting too.

I think it could be fun, what do you guys think?  Smiley
10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Phoenix t-shirt... on: March 21, 2007 12:25:31 PM
I found the stencil online, I can't remember where, I had it saved on my computer. I used acrylic gold paint (it's sparkly but doesn't show in the pictures) and fabric medium on a brown t-shirt. I love how it turned out.  Smiley





Edit: I found the website: http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v673/star_stencils/. It's in the animal category.  Smiley
