1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Earrings earrings EARRINGS!!! on: February 12, 2008 11:22:41 AM
I always disliked making earrings until recently. I *heart* them now. Smiley They're great when another project is stressing me out because a little bit can go a long way and before you realize it, you're done. Smiley

I'm using a Super Nintendo controller for another project, and I was really excited to see that the top buttons were being held on with pins. Insta-jewelry with no drilling (my exhausted drill thanks me!)

I bought these 4 guitar picks and added 4 glass beads for a little extra pizazz. The wire is actually a broken E string. I want some more guitar picks and strings!!! The downside is my crimp beads were a little too wimpy. It took awhile to get them to stay in one place. lol.

Barbie shoooooooes! My mom dropped off all my barbies a few months ago, and I just couldn't wait to make something of my barbie shoes!

2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / NES controller ipod holder on: January 30, 2008 01:28:23 PM
I just made it this morning. It took me a few hours because I would do something and realize that I was messing up. This is an extreme prototype. I messed up a lot and I plan on making another one and using this one as a coin purse, or using the good stuff on the new one. I love it though and it makes me smile. I used craft felt and embroidery floss. I used a zipper because I needed my headphones to come out of the case. I didn't cut holes for the headphones/usb cable or to be able to control the hold switch. The next one I make will be better. Smiley OH! The pics don't show but the cover of the controller flips open and you have the ipod screen. It's closed with velcro, but the velcro barely stays on so I'll have to figure something else out.

3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / The bane of my existence! My 1st commissioned taggie blanket. on: January 28, 2008 10:28:47 AM
It took me months to finish this 18in x 18in 4 block baby blanket.  First my sewing machine was wonky, and then I got a sinus infection/ear infection and couldn't work on it. Sheesh! Thankfully the person I was making it for wasn't in a hurry and I'll be shipping off tomorrow. Smiley

I used fabrics found at Hancock Fabrics. The polka dots and stripes are cotton quilting fabrics and the backing is micro Kashmere. I didn't put in any batting because the micro kashmere is nice and thick. I bought the ribbons at Michaels.

Anywho, here is an in process picture:

The end result (don't mind the mess. My sewing table aka dining room table is cluttered with scraps!)
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Coffee cup cozies due to insomnia. on: November 29, 2007 10:58:58 AM
This is my first time posting anything I made.  I guess I should tell you the backstory.

I drank about 5 cups of coffee in the afternoon which lead to me not sleeping the entire night. Yes, that's right, I haven't slept since yesterday! SHEESH!

So I had a bunch of felt from a different project and I really wanted to do a fun craft and besides, it was 2am. What else did I have to do?

Coffee...coffee...coffee.... OH! Coffee Cozies! (yes, this was my train of thought!)

By the way, don't hand sew anything if you have caffiene shakes!

The puppy is sewn on with embroidery thread. I blanket stitched the edges so they looked more finished.

I eyeballed the petals and center and you can see that didn't work out too well. By the way, did I mention don't sew when you're shaking?

My personal fave: Sir Jellyfish. I drew one on a sheet of paper and then pinned and cut it out of hot pink felt. I can't draw to save my life, so I'm surprised and happy that it came out looking like a jellyfish. Another thing is if you cut the tentacles too thin, they'll rip right off.

Hopefully I posted this in the right place. I stared at the front page for five minutes because I wasn't sure where to put this!
