1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Flower Hair Clip on: February 22, 2011 06:04:32 AM
(I really hope this is the right section for this...)

This is a simple flower pin that I started making (multiples of) out of my boredom yesterday.  The flower is made of fleece with a button and there is a barrette glued to the back.  It looks really nice on me, my three year old niece, and my half year old nephew!

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / AHHHH!!! THERE ARE PINS IN MY HEAD! on: February 22, 2011 05:59:40 AM
I went to the thrift store yesterday and saw this set of 18 tealight holders (three diffrent sizes) for $3 that was calling for me.  My sister took three of them, but I was determined to find something to do.

Thus, my Pin Head was born!

I spent about 30 minutes transferring all my pins from a jar to his head, but I'm happy with the result!
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / A Quiet Little Snowman... found his wife and child! on: February 22, 2011 05:54:09 AM
Yesterday, I was on a huge sewing rush and this is one of the things I made (and time ended up flying till 1 am while making this... oops!).  Because of all the small details and types of stitching, I had to hand sew him, and I only pricked myself about fifty times! So here he is:

And now, after another whole day of being distracted by sewing, I bring you his wife and child!

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / How to straighten out a heavy brooch? on: February 15, 2011 06:30:51 PM
I'm gonna make this short and to-the-point.

I'm making brooches for a few purses that i've made recently with three fabric roses on a circular base.  The problem is, its so heavy that it always falls forward enough to show the back/pin.

What sort of pins/backings/techniques can I use to minimalize this problem?
5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / My First Two Cards :) on: August 24, 2010 09:20:17 PM
These are the first two cards I made (but not my first experience with paper crafting).  One was for my friend's graduation and one was for my One Year of Dating anniversary. I must say, it's easy to have too many ideas or too few ideas... but it takes way too much thinking to fill a card in a way I like it!

This is the graduation card... which I don't think was shown as much love as I gave it... eh, oh well.

This is the One Year card... yeah, so the pictures aren't the most romantic looking, but they didn't fit in the scrapbook and I couldn't let them go to waste!... plus I ran out of photo paper.

Thank you for looking!
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / One Year Scrapbook for My Boyfriend (Too... many.. pictures...) on: August 24, 2010 09:10:13 PM
So Friday is our One Year of dating anniversary, and I've been putting this scrapbook together since about month four. We're celebrating today, so I get to give it to him sooner than I expected (and thank goodness, 'cause I'm getting too excited to wait and not ruin the surprise!).  I picked some of my favorite pages to post, cause it would be crazy posting the entire thing  Tongue

This is what's on the cover, the two most important things to me that he bought me.

This is the title page, with the idea completely stolen from JanelleJ's scrapbook - https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=326866.0

These are my introductory pages, including a "note from the scrapbooker" and the lyrics to our song all fancied up.

This is from our school's formal dance

Valentine's Day <3

His birthday and my Honor Society induction were on the same day

This page will be given to him as is, then when we're through with the day, I'll put in the pictures we take Smiley

And finally, this page concludes the entire scrapbook, summarizing it into one 8"x8" page

Well now that you're probably burned out from looking at scrapbook pages, I'll end with one more sentence... Thanks for looking!
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Ideas for sewing a stuffed lacrosse stick? on: April 06, 2010 05:22:15 PM
I'm thinking of sewing mini stuffed lacrosse sticks for my lacrosse team. But there are parts of the stick which i dont know exactly how to make it work.... Here's what a girl's lacrosse stick looks like :

I have a few ideas, such as using an actual crafting stick (probably spray painted) as the handle/shaft and using netting for the ropey white part/mesh (its really hard to describe some of this in terms which can be understood).
I also want to put in some sort of ball to resemble a lacrosse ball (nothing too special to it).

What I need ideas for include:

-Materials/Providing structure in making the plastic part surrounding the mesh (the head)... so basically i need something thats bendable but can hold its shape.
-Connecting the shaft to the head

If anyone has any ideas, it would be well appreciated. I also want to keep it fairly easy, since I'd be making about twenty...
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Bright Orange Shirt on: January 11, 2009 09:06:52 AM
I have this bright orange fabric which I found the other day looking through my fabric, so I figured I would make a dress/shirt out of it.  It fits sew well (haha... sewing pun.) and I got so many compliments wearing it!  Its probably just about the simplest thing in the world.

The second picture is the actual item, the scarf is just to liven it up
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / INSANELY Vintage Dress (In fact, Prehistoric is a better term) on: December 26, 2008 05:40:10 PM
So I got a dress form for Chirstmas (Yay!!)  and how else to celebrate but to sew!  I must say, it was so awesome not having to put on what im making over and over and over trying to pin the fabric while trying to hold it up.

So here it is: My Dinosaurific Dress!

This is really blurry, but it's the best picture that shows the layout of the dress

There's a clearer picture of the front and its Dinosaury goodness

And the little heart thats in the lower left of the front (when you're wearing it).  You can kinda see a part of it in the picture above this one.

Thanks for looking!  I appreciate any comments or complaints... Or just any tips or trick that will help me in later projects, especially tips on getting the best results from my dress form (this is one of very few projects that I've actually done... so I still consider myself a beginner).
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Argh!! I'm a Pirate! on: June 23, 2008 07:47:47 AM
So for the Girl Scout Camp this year, I was helping and we got these shirts on which everyone painted stripes and a skull on the front.  Our leader told us to get a large shirt for the camp, since she knew we'd all want to do SOMETHING with it, and something I did!!

So here it is!

And of course, we need a picture of me AT the Encampment
