111  Cupcake Clutch/Wristlet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by xperimentl on: September 17, 2008 01:40:54 PM
After seeing how thrilled my 3-year-old daughter was with my first amateur attempts at making pouches and wallets out of felt  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=268969.0  I decided to make something especially for her.  She loves having things with her name on them; she figures that way she won't be asked to share.  I'm curious as to how well this inexpensive craft felt will hold up with use, but between the fabric and zipper I'm only out about $3 and 90 minutes of labor (since everything was hand cut and sewn).

My favorite model...

112  Felt Baby Signs in Needlework: Completed Projects by xperimentl on: September 15, 2008 11:34:56 AM
Two of my friends had babies this week.  I wanted to make something personalized so I got out my felt and embroidery thread and went to work.  I'm new to needlework, but I'm quickly finding it therapeutic. The tiger and bunny are patterns from Cute Stuff by Aranzi Aronzo.  Thanks for looking.

113  My foray into felt in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by xperimentl on: September 15, 2008 11:26:24 AM
I'm new to this board and new to making bags and wallets.  Here are a few items that I have made which were inspired and based upon some patterns in Cute Stuff by Aranzi Aronzo.

My teddy bear pouch.  This is my first time using a sewing machine in 20 years and I've never inserted a zipper before, but I think it turned out pretty cute and my daughter isn't too critical.

My card holders, perfect for carrying gift cards and coupons.  These go fast, so I'll be making several for gifts.

A cozy for my old school nano.

Thanks for looking.  Comments and suggestions for improvement appreciated.

114  Candy Corn without the Calories or Cavities in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by xperimentl on: September 12, 2008 03:04:35 PM
Here's a candy corn bracelet that I made out of Shrinky Dinks.  I like it, but think I need to try making another one with smaller holes for the jump rings.  I need to find a good hole punch that doesn't totally disappear when I shrink, but doesn't leave holes that are too large in scale for small pieces either.  Early Happy Halloween!

115  Shrinky Craft Mojo Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by xperimentl on: September 04, 2008 03:45:00 PM
I made this necklace to hang near my craft desk for inspiration and to wear when I host craft parties for my friends; I figured it would bring me some extra good craft karma.  It combines two of my favorite things...Shrinky Dinks and buttons.

Thanks for looking.  I love your comments and critiques.

116  Re: Halloween Silhouette Charm Bracelet (New Pics with Beads added) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by xperimentl on: September 01, 2008 12:53:29 PM
Thanks for all of the ideas.  I added some pearlescent purple beads that I think glam it up a little bit.  Upgrade or downgrade?

117  Halloween Silhouette Charm Bracelet (New Pics with Beads added) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by xperimentl on: August 27, 2008 03:44:05 PM
The charms are made from black shrinky dink plastic.  Do you like it as is or do you think I need to add beads or bling?  It just occurred to me that my spiders only have 6 legs - oops. Thanks for your help!

Action shot: I wore it for awhile to make sure the charms didn't get in the way too much since they are larger than I usually wear, but it wasn't too bad.

118  Shrinky Skeleton Pin in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by xperimentl on: August 25, 2008 12:23:39 PM
I'm starting to get into the Halloween mood.  You know how it is... you go into the craft store and see the fall stuff and can't help but do a project.  I had a variety pack of Shrinky Dinks and decided to use a white sheet to create a skeleton.  I downloaded the pattern for it at http://www.benjerry.com/halloween/crafts/ and traced it using permanent markers.  It turned out to be the size of a dollar bill after shrinking.  The legs and arms are attached with small black brads with the lower legs and arms attached with jump rings so it can have more movement when I wear it as a pin.

Please excuse the glare, I'm still working on my closeup photography.  Thanks for looking!

119  Another Shrinky Dinkaholic in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by xperimentl on: August 20, 2008 01:50:59 PM
I have been experimenting with Shrinky Dinks quite a bit lately and wanted to post a few of my favorite pieces.  I love the instant gratification of shrink plastic!

Poppy pendant was traced onto Ruff N'Ready with permanent pen and colored with colored pencils and chalks.  The glaze was made my melting clear embossing powder over it and the crystal was placed in the center before the powder was melted.

I made variations of this keychain for my friends.  I printed the words on regular paper and glued them onto the shrunk piece before I melted embossing powder over it and it created kind of a transparent effect.
Thanks for looking.

120  Sock Monkey Makeover in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by xperimentl on: August 20, 2008 10:48:09 AM
My 3-year-old daughter just couldn't deal with having a plain old naked sock monkey, so I got out a fat quarter and made a little two piece outfit and matching bow.  I considered the monkey to be a male since I made him several years ago, so I hope he doesn't have a difficult time adjusting to his gender reassignment.  Perhaps my daughter's new found love for the monkey will help it cope with the transition.
Thanks for looking.
