I was looking through a country cooking mag my dear passed on grandma gave me and I saw a photo using these for a thanksgiving cheese platter

so less than 20 bucks later and a trip to dear ol' wally world and I have a gift for my Aunt...the one who cooks so well dont bother bringing anything youve cooked no matter how good cause shes better Tongue....so ha!! not only does she love them she still cant belive they were so easy. Whodathunkit?! Grin

i bought
-turkey threaders... .88 cents a pack..i bought 3
-good ol E-6000...didnt care how much cause I know Id use it for everything
-a value pack of glass beads $5.00
-two different packs of little silver beads ...2.00 a pack

twirl the area with the glue...twirl on the desired beads for maximum coverage and adhearance....and thats it...just dry for a good while ...I left them for 24 ish hours

I made this just to see how the beads might come out and my little one took it, I only got it back long enough to snap this shot, as you can see from the chubby little fingers in the pic

made this for my daughters friend ...she picked the too small clothes and helped cut/pin/sew(not for long), and braided the straps
sorry kinda large

painted the cherries with glitter and made some flowers to cover the sewing where the straps went

sorry so messy guys, i could move, I sprained my ankle so im not all that mobile...this is a bag  Imade for my daughter to put the jewelry she made in...just so happened to have the perfect themed jammies

heres the purse...I am SO prod of myself it is my first major sewing project...this was actually the first thing i made...and its all hand sewn...i dont have a machine...I even lined it  Grin

this is the inside...i guess reverseable

the only thing I didnt do was press it, next time i might

thanks for looking

thanks for looking Smiley
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / shrits my girls begged for... from a re-con book on: October 02, 2007 09:25:30 PM

This was picked by my middle child, pretty basic and basically no sew...she is NOT allowed to wear it out though...just for around the house

this is my oldest and her pick...sorry i dont have a better pic, but its corseted up the back and the straps are braided and criss crossed in the back, and no sewed on (poked holes and pulled through and knotted) it is longer, more like a tunic length...its also "in the house wear"

thanks for looking! Smiley

8  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Hello from So Cal on: September 23, 2007 12:21:53 PM
Hello there, I'm new to crafster...sort of...for a few days on and off I have been trying to learn the ropes...but I have 4 kids and a dog and a hubby so its sort of sporadic. I come from a long line of artists on both sides of my family and so (whooda thunkit) I seemed to have picked up a love of all the crafts in the family line and maybe even some they would scoff at (think tattoos).

I paint, sew, draw, glue, photograph and craft until the itch is gone for a while and then usually it comes back again with a mean vengeance. I honestly think I have found my new on line playground....seriously who needs myspace when theres craftster?! Grin
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Arm Slings for broken arm on: September 23, 2007 11:53:44 AM
My oldest daughter broke her arm and the hospital was too swamped to remeber any aftercare instructions...on a whim after seeing her lug a huge cast around on such a tiny arm , I made these out of an old t-shirt (the pink/skull one) and her fave bandana ...they are hand stiched and I painted the pink one with watered down fabric paint.

 this is my first post Cheesy...hope this works

okay i had to modify this, i think...just trying to figure this thingy out here
