281  My 1st chainmalle project in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Kimmermonroe on: September 21, 2007 03:50:13 AM
So I've seen some really nice chainmalle projects here and some really neat ones on Metal Chik and I thought I'd give it a try.
Not as easy as I though..........and this was an easy one!
After a few hours, a sore thumb and pointer finger, and a half circle dent in my already very short nails I had this.
The rings are aluminum and it's kinda hard to see the 3 brass ones in the middle.

282  Kid's headboards in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Kimmermonroe on: September 11, 2007 04:57:05 PM
So my DH and I made these for our kids last year.
My son is into dragons so we made him this textured flame headboard.
The texture is for drywall we got it at Lowes, I originally had the rock putty but that would have made it pretty heavy. Don't mind the white bits on it. One of his pillows had a hole.

And this one for our daughter. I don't know how much longer she'll keep it. She'd decided it's too cutesy.

283  "I Did IT!!!" crocheted flower belt in Crochet: Completed Projects by Kimmermonroe on: September 06, 2007 05:05:50 AM
I can't crochet. I want to be able too, but I can't. I can almost any other crafts, but knitting and crocheting, no. Knitting is way out, tried and failed. My crocheting consists of strange simple purses and wonky scarves. Anyway I just found the ThreadHeads website and saw the episode for crocheting flowers and watched it about 10X. This is my 2nd flower the first is really screwed up. But here's the belt I put together for my daughter.

284  Left over materials BDU purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Kimmermonroe on: September 03, 2007 06:57:44 PM
If you look back I made a BDU messanger bag for my son for school. Anyway I took the leftovers and made a purse. The flower is on a pin. That way if it annoys me there I can put it elsewhere.
Don't mind the stray string, they're just bits that fell off me and onto the bag,

Made a pocket up front for my cell


And my purty flower

Would you believe I still have scraps left over......

285  BDU Messanger Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Kimmermonroe on: August 26, 2007 02:46:13 PM
My husband picked up a messanger bag for my oldest(He's 11) for school. Well after 3 days of school the bag wasn't working. Was too small for him so I decided to make my own for him. I took 2 of my husband's worn out BDU (Battle Dress Uniform) tops and my seem ripper and took the whole thing apart. Reconstructed it into this new messanger bag for my boy. It's big enough that he can fit his books, lunch, and his gym clothes in it. I also added a key ring for him to attach his cell phone to. Plus you gotta love all the extra pockets.
Bag closed.

286  The not so easy dinning room chair make over, in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Kimmermonroe on: August 24, 2007 07:31:56 AM
First sorry for the no before picks. This is a dinning room set we bought while we were stationed in Turkey. After 2 kids, 3 moves since, and 9 yrs. the fabric was ruined.
Here was the interesting part when I started the first chair I cried. The fabric and cushions were glued and stapled to the chair!!! There was to just popping the seat part off. I had to rip off the fabric and trim and redu it the way they did!!!!!!!!! By the time I was done I was sooo sore. Anyway here it is.

After a few weeks away from that fabric I made a fabric basket for the table. I'll fill it later. That was kinda fun to sew.

287  Not made from Polymer clay but for it in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Kimmermonroe on: August 24, 2007 07:23:55 AM
I don't know how it is with everyone but I like to be able to move around the house with my craft projects. I call it mobile crafting. Sometimes in the living room or outside on the porch. I came up with this for my smaller polymer projects.

It is a glass shadow box I picked up from the $1 store.

I did a reverse glass painting with a image I found on yahoo and decopaged behind it and lined the inside lid with felt.

With the glass on top I can work right on it and keep all of my supplies or extra clay inside!
Before I forget that's not a tail on her it some flames shooting out from abound her feet. I didn't like it but was stuck with it after the glue dried.
I' think I'll make one for my mom for her mobile crafting.
Thanks for looking. Grin

289  Sad Susie Sad Eyes in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Kimmermonroe on: August 11, 2007 10:06:05 AM
So I've been watching the revamped dolls on here for awhile and I figured I'd give it a try.
See I have a little COCD (Crafting Obsession Compulsion Disorder)condition so I knew this could possibly send me over the edge and yet I did it anyway.
And it did....
Anyway found my Susie Sad Eyes on ebay in not so bad condition.
Did some research...... I big thanks to "tabloach" anyone interested in doing this she has a FANTASTIC website.
When the doll came in I popped her head off and started removing the hair.
Problem 1. She only had maybe 20 hair punched holes.
Solution. Had to draw and measure some of my own to punch through.
Problem 2. The stupid hair I bought wasn't working. It kept unraveling and knotting
Solution . Dismantled a old wig I had.
Anyway finished her did a little makeup update and gave her a deep purple eye color and Viola.

Oh I made this quick outfit with a felted sweater I had.
Thanks for looking!!!

290  Leather Bracelets in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Kimmermonroe on: July 19, 2007 08:01:48 PM
A few years ago on a jewelry making show I saw a women make a leather bracelet and it peeked my interest. So in full Obsessive Compulsive mode I went on ebay to find my leather. I ended up finding a "lot" of different leathers belt pieces. Peeked my interest so I bought all of them sat put them away until recently when I came up with this idea. It is stamped polymer clay pieces cooked first then glued to the strap. I used a leather punch to make the holes in the back then I laced it with lace or leather.
