1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Two Cool T-Shirt Handbags on: September 02, 2006 10:31:16 PM
Made from, plain t-shirts, (scrap fabric only on for the brown one), wood handles, iron-on transfers. The Erykah Badu Bag (orange) has round handles and the Bob Marley bag has semi-circle shaped handles. Got the handbag idea from the book "Teasse: 50 Inspired T-shirt Transformations".

Tell me what ya think. All feedback welcome. Tips too!  Wink



2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / I Clueless about making a Leather Cuff!!! AID ME PLEASE!!! on: August 29, 2006 05:37:30 AM
I've search all of the craft stores around and I'm at a loss now and in serious need of some guidance.  I'd like to make some cuff bracelets similar to the ones below.  First, I have no clue where to get the supplies and once I have them...well, I could wing it, but info on the bracelet constructions would be nice.  The original cuff bracelets are made of an assortment of: leather, texture(whatever that is), snakeskin, stones, tiger shell, feathers, etc.  All different depending on the cuff.  So help please.  Yes, I'm grovelling.  Any directions on how/where to get the supplies and how to create the cuffs? 

The oringinal website is located here:  http://karmakultura.com/store/collection_she.php?Id_products=59&Id_collection=5

Thanks in advance for your ingenious tips!    Kiss

4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / My Iron-on Transfers T-Shirts from a Newbie!!! on: May 06, 2005 09:51:07 PM
I'm new around here.  Only a few post to ask questions and to gush over other people's work.  I can't sew, but I'm learning to this summer.  So, for now I am the lover of Iron-on transfers and no-sew projects.  Here are some of my iron-on transfer shirts.  Comments and suggestions appreciated!  Thanks for stopping by!

This shirt has an Outkast lyric on it.  It says "Sad, but one day our kids will have to visit museums to see what a lady looks like."  I love Outkast.  I added some jewels with my gluegun.  The jewels are on the back too.

I made this recently. Does anyone remember the show "Fraggle Rock"?

Here is the back of the "Fraggle Rock" shirt.

I cut this shirt up.  It was a plan white t-shirt.  I also tied on these lacy sleeves from a old headband.  That's Etta James on the shirt.

Here is a close up of the Etta James shirt.
