31  My Swap Journal in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by photojenn on: September 03, 2007 07:45:40 AM
I used a plain composition notebook to make this.  While I was taking out some of the pieces of paper I broke the binding, so I had to take it apart and re-sew the binding (way easier than I thought it was going to be).  Then I realized that the covers were actually two layers of thin cardboard not one so I stripped off the top layer and recovered the whole thing with cardstock and scrapbook paper.

Here is the outside, the text in the orange piece says "imagine"

Here is a pic of one of the pages

I used a cool typewriter font for all the text, the fields are
- swap name

- organizer
- sign-up date
- sendout date
- partner screenname
- partner real name
- address

- date sent
- dc number
- date partner received

- date partner sent
- dc number
- date i received

- what i sent
- what partner sent

There are also 3 other pages for each swap with fields like
- info i sent
- info partner sent

- ideas to make
- supplies needed
- notes

- misc

I love this and it's been really handy to keep track of everything!  I am even printing off pictures of everything that was sent/received to make sort of a mini scrapbook.  Thanks for looking!    Smiley

32  UrbanOutfitters Clock Inspired Card in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by photojenn on: September 03, 2007 06:57:12 AM
I was looking through the UrbanOutfitters catalog a few weeks ago and saw a clock with these cute birds on it (I can't find the pic on the website).  I wanted to make something with the birds, so I made this card.  I like how it turned out, but I'm not sure how I feel about the sun.  Comments/suggestions are always welcome  Smiley

33  First tote attempt in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by photojenn on: August 01, 2007 07:40:59 PM
I made this tote over the weekend.  I modified the jordy design to make it bigger and add the divider.   It didn't turn out too bad but next time I think I will make the straps a couple inches longer and a bit wider.  The bag measures about 13"x9"x4" with 22"x1" straps. 


Inside with 12" powerbook to show the size:

Inside again to show the divider better:

I really like the bag but it doesn't hold its shape very well when weight is placed in it.  Any suggestions on how to make hold its shape better?  I used the thickest interfacing I could find, maybe I will try doubling it up next time.  Ideally I would like to make something sturdy enough to carry my laptop in.   Also, any other comments and suggestions are welcome Smiley

36  My First Purse (and sewing project ever)! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by photojenn on: June 03, 2007 08:15:11 PM
I just finished my first purse (and sewing project ever) and I am so happy with how it turned out!  I used the jordy tutorial and modified it a bit to add inside pockets and make it bigger.
