1  Decoupaged Bangle in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by ellegal22 on: July 09, 2009 08:00:58 AM
I am teaching a jewelry project at the library next week for teenage girls. Usually I do a beaded project, but this time I decided that we would decoupage bangle bracelets. So, I got a bunch of plastic bangles and cut out hundreds of designs from magazines and wrapping paper.
This is the example I made. It was originally a green bracelet, but I covered it with bits of yellow magazine, and then I decoupaged post-it notes over it. I cut a long strip of paper and put it on the inside of the bracelet to cover up the raw edges.

And another view:

Thanks for looking!

2  Palm Tree Collage in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by ellegal22 on: June 26, 2009 07:07:59 PM
Hello! This collage is based off the backdrop at the end of the movie Raise Your Voice.
The palm tree and black grid are connected, and then I cut out different colored squares of magazine and glued them behind the grid.

Sorry for the bad photo!
Thanks for looking; feel free to comment!!

3  Bright Clutch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ellegal22 on: May 17, 2009 07:53:07 AM
I get my license this week (well, go for my license), and I wanted something to put my license, keys, phone and money in without having to carry around an entire purse. I noticed a lot of people have these clutch sort of things, so I decided to make one too.

Front, with spot to put license:

The spot for my license is really crooked, but my mom at first she thought it was supposed to be "op art-ish", so maybe I'll pretend that's the reason.
Thanks for looking!!

4  Pink, orange, and yellow fabric keychain in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ellegal22 on: March 20, 2009 03:41:26 PM
I'm not sure if this goes in this section, but it seems kind of purse/bag/wallet-ish.
Anyway, I get my license in two months, so I figured I'd make a fabric key chain, much better than the bead one I use now that I made when I was five.
I sewed the scraps onto a piece of ribbon and then sewed that around the key chain.

Thanks for looking!

5  Pink, yellow, and black tank top/dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ellegal22 on: January 01, 2009 12:19:32 PM
I originally started making this as a dress, but it also works as a shirt (and I think I like it better that way). It's based off of a somewhat similar dress a friend had bought.

As a shirt, with the rest of the material rolled up and tucked underneath:

Back (don't mind the folds and everything, when I actually wear it as a shirt, I'll be more careful about that):

As a dress (I still need to hem the bottom):

Thanks for looking!

6  Colorful picture frames in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by ellegal22 on: January 01, 2009 12:13:16 PM
Here are a few picture frames I've made. The first and the last ones I made the physical frame itself, out of cardboard.
The second one is a cardboard picture frame that I had that I just decorated.

A collaged frame (I got the idea from my friend, who did it first):


White paper with blue and green ribbon (and of course I got concealer on it, but oh well):

Thanks for looking!

7  sponge painted stationery in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by ellegal22 on: January 01, 2009 12:07:22 PM
I made this stationery a few years ago, and I don't really want to mail it to someone!
I taped off the sections I didn't want painted, sponged over it, and then peeled off the tape.
In the pictures, the note card is on top, and the front of the envelope is lying beneath it.

8  bright, collage heels in Shoes: Completed Projects by ellegal22 on: November 28, 2008 12:00:46 PM
I got the idea from these posts: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=101928.msg967387#msg967387
and https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=75191.0

the result:

here's a picture of the original shoe:

i used fabric shoes, not plastic, so the cut outs and mod podge didn't really stick to the shoe that well. to cover the gap between the two straps, i hot glued contact paper to connect them (the contact paper didn't stick either, so i figured out to use hot glue, which was ten times easier). then i just used mod podge and magazine cut outs to cover the shoes! i'm very happy with the way they came out. here are some close ups of the designs:

9  pink, orange, yellow, & white bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ellegal22 on: June 19, 2008 01:30:58 PM
i take a jewelry and textiles class at school, and for one of our projects we had to weave something, so i decided to make a bag. i cut up strips of fabric and wove it with white ribbon. there was a section in the fashion show at our school that featured everything people in the class made, which was really cool.

and here's a close-up of the weaving:

the good thing with the fabric i used was that i didn't have to cut it straight or even at all; when i wove it, it ended up scrunching up wherever it was too wide.

10  bandana & macrame... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ellegal22 on: June 19, 2008 12:34:35 PM
i made this purse a few years ago from a bandana and macrame necklace i had. i didn't fold the bandana in any special way, but it ended up wiht pockets on the inside.

this was before i had my sewing machine so it's hand-sewn.
