1  Hand-printed LOG purse! woodsy goodness. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by SugarPickle on: August 20, 2008 07:28:43 PM
i dreamed up this purse last night, and then i made it!  lol...i am really excited about it, anyway.  it's crafty in two ways, but since most of it's sewing, i thought i'd put it here.  FIRST, though, i made the lil' panel insert in the center front.  it's on organic cotton, and it's printed with a linoleum block i carved, using acrylic paint mixed with textile medium.  then i made the bag; i basically put the lining in using the same method as one would use with those little lined zipper pouches?  you know, minus the zipper.  topped off with adorable, round vintage button.  YAY!  hope you enjoy. Cheesy

2  Re: Fiber Friday 8-1-08..!! in Spinning: Completed Projects by SugarPickle on: August 01, 2008 04:14:37 PM
WOW!  ever single thing on here is great, truly, i can say that to everyone!!  (i especially admire the ability to spin sock yarn...)

okay, i guess i'll introduce myself; i am a long-time craftster, first time spinner!!!  i'm not even going to say i'm a beginner, i'm like a pre-beginner.  i mean a friend just gave me a drop spindle and some wool last week!  and i bought a book about it, which i haven't completely read.....so, that said, you probably are no longer wondering what this plain, uneven, twisted up mess is!  i just had to share though, i feel like such a big girl LOL....  Tongue

anyway, there isn't much more to say about it.  oh, i guess i can say i've set the twist (i think?)  i have no idea what kind of wool this is, or how much is there.  it's a small amount, though.  i am thinking i'll be getting me some kool aid and dying this wad!

Thanks! Cheesy

3  Kolor Klutch - black & white, buttons and color in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by SugarPickle on: June 08, 2008 06:11:47 PM
so i have been away from craftser for a while now....a long while...and am kind of catching up, bit by bit.  this here's a little something i made for a christmas present last year.  a very simple zipper pouch with a little hand loop, corduroy houndstooth, waffle knit apple print, and some silk accents.  peace!

4  Circus Couture-ish tribal fusion halloween costume!! in Halloween Costumes by SugarPickle on: June 08, 2008 05:56:28 PM
um, so...i just realized i never shared this costume!  (ok, i have been away from craftster for months and months now. hello again, by the way!)

i made this for one of the monthly shows we have at the bellydance studio i go to.  (guess what month  it was!)  the great part is i actually made this the day of the show, which is not exactly a wise idea, especially if you are to be DANCING in it the same night.  but it worked!

as far as difficulty level, it was really very simple; it was just a matter of choosing the right style, and of course, accessories! hehe.  i made the striped top, skirt & gauntlets, the veil, and the lime green tassel belt.  (i didn't make Kuchi belt.  duh.)

hope you like it!  these are not very detailed pics, but they are the best i have  and i think the photographer did a good job of making me look good. Tongue

5  Mermaid Belly Dance Bra in Costumes: Completed Projects by SugarPickle on: June 06, 2008 11:32:26 PM
i love this so much i just had to share; i took a regular lingerie bra, cut off the straps and added my own strap system, then covered the cups with sari fabric, tassels and beaded fringe.

one of the coolest things about it is that i really didn't plan it; all of the fabric and embellishments were scraps i had around here and there in my stash, and it just came together.

(the second pic is a little weird, i just wanted to get a clear view of the straps.)

6  Super Awesome MUSHROOM! purse..... for real. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by SugarPickle on: June 06, 2008 09:20:53 PM
haha...um, well, maybe it sounds like i'm a little full of myself.  it's just that i'm really, really pleased with how this came out!  simple elegance meets woodland whimsy....or something. Tongue  i love the neutral pinstripe fabric with the dark gray of the mushroom.  first i used the freezer paper stencil technique and some acrylic paint mixed with  textile medium.  then i made a very simple pattern.

hope you enjoy!

7  Roy Rogers Pot Holders! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by SugarPickle on: December 02, 2007 09:15:37 PM
i made these for Christmas, for one of my mom's friends who loves roy rogers.  i think they're pretty nifty.....they were simple enough, but took a lot longer than i thought!  i would be glad to do a tutorial if anyone's interested (thought i can't promise i'll get it up too soon....) 

anyway, i don't have a pic of the back right now but it's backed with calico patchwork.  i used calico cotton for the whole thing, with two layers of cotton batting, machine stitched over the top of that, added bias tape and a little button at the bottom of the loop to top it off.  i stenciled the images on....my first stencil job EVER.....and am hoping they don't come off!  (i am planning to test it out, on another image i printed that night, before i give them to her Smiley )  it may have been wise to do that before i sewed them all up, but i'm sure it'll be fine....  Wink

let me know what you think!

8  the golden squid in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by SugarPickle on: December 02, 2007 09:10:08 PM
....or octopus.  i don't know.  but, really, i guess it's not an octopus since it has only 3 sad, misshapen legs.....  not a squid either.  i'm so confused.  anyway, i don't know why, but i was so compelled to make a gold lame (luh-MAY, note lame Tongue) sea creature tonight, it took about 5 minutes, looks like poo, but i just LOVE it for some reason....

9  Vintage/Retro/Cheesy/Classy bag for pads! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by SugarPickle on: November 11, 2007 09:15:52 PM
Okay, I have recently begun using cloth pads, and realized I needed someting to store them in.  It's really simple, but I really love it, and once I get around to putting up the laundry that's stacked in a huge pile in the corner of my room, I'll use it.   Tongue

I took three sections of fabric and used binding at the edges to create a simple envelope, and used five different buttons and loops for a closure.  I then finished it up with some nice, big, cheap lace around the edges.  And I have to say, I LOVE the fabric.

10  My Felt Menagerie! and then some....somewhat IMG heavy in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by SugarPickle on: November 02, 2007 08:02:32 PM
I'm obsessed with making little felt dolls.  Okay, one of them isn't tiny, nor is it felt.  Namely the octopus.  And the others are mostly mushrooms....so...it's not much of a menagerie--but oh well.  hehe.... i hope you enjoy anyway!
