12  Love American Style Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by jenihall on: December 10, 2007 01:26:57 PM
First of all, Thank you to my inspiration. I got this basic pattern from the "pleatness" purse. Here is the link https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=178244.0.
I made two bags but forgot to take pictures of the other one and now it is wrapped up under my Christmas tree for my sister  Cry! This one is for my other sister but I remembered to take pics before wrapping it this time.
I loved this fabric. It is called "Love American Style". It is so '80s! I tweaked the pleatness purse pattern and added a flap and button. The coolest part is that I made the button too! It is my polymer clay creation. The other purse I made was black with music note fabric and red interior lining. I'll take pictures after Christmas. I hope y'all like it. Let me know what you think!
Here it is, TA DA!

Here is a side pocket

And the inside with crazy star fabric

and the green heart button! I made it myself!

Let me know if you love it!

13  a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, o' Cocoa in CHALLENGE 22 ENTRIES by jenihall on: November 02, 2007 02:18:43 PM
So, My husband came home the other day with a big box. I said, "what's in there honey?" "About 40 Pillowcases!" He says. He works in plumbing so I have no idea where these would have come from. Perplexed, I asked him "What the heck are we going to do with them?" "Use them on our pillows, of course!"

Well, that night I got a message in my voice mail from my sister. She told me all about the craftster challenge and how I should join her and learn how to embroider pillowcases. "It's a sign" I said to myself. So here I am posting my creations.
One pillowcase is for me and one for my husband. We are complete opposites most of the time. He loves winter, and cold, and he can't resista cup of Hot Cocoa. I love, love, LOVE the summer, heat and I can't resist a cool glass of Lemonade. So, I put three opposites together, Summer and Winter, Hot and Cold, Sweet and Sour. 
This is my first shot at embroidery but I have been sewing and doing other fabric crafts for quite a while.

Whether you are a summer person or a winter person you can agree that you can't enjoy one without the other.  This makes my mouth water, mmmmmmmmm. . . . .
It feels like hot cocoa time will be here soon! Living in Phoenix, we pray for cool weather when we can put on sweaters and drink hot cocoa without having heat stroke!

Thanks for looking, and . . . . . VOTE FOR ME!!!!!

So simple, yet so refreshing!

Mmmm, Lemons. Is your mouth watering yet?

Zoom in

Oh soo rich and chocolatey

I love mini marshmallows

Here is a close up on a snowflake.

Thanks again for looking and
Remember, Vote for me!

14  A touch of Tuscany in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by jenihall on: October 24, 2007 09:44:00 AM
I started this about a week after my baby was born. I needed something to keep me sane while he slept. My husband loved this picture and I found a itty bitty copy of it online (about 1.5''x''2.5) so I had to do my best to blow it up and make it look alive. This was done in acrylics. I haven't signed it yet because it doesn't feel like it's done yet. Oh, and in real life the sky has a cool Vanilla tint to it. Let me know what you think.

15  Mario Madness!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by jenihall on: October 22, 2007 09:53:19 AM
So, I am totally in love with Mario! When I was visiting my sister we learned how to do Bleach Stencilling. It is so amazing! I found the sweetest Mario stencil pattern online and made a bleach stencil shirt for my cute little boy. I loved it so much that I did one for myself too. I got my shirt for $1! And the bleach stencilling costs next to nothing. Mine didn't turn out quite as well as my son's but I love Mario so I will wear it proudly!

My son's shirt. Soooo cool!

This is mine, the color is kinda off on the pic but you get the idea.

This is my sweetheart wearing his Mario shirt for the first time! I think he likes it! Cheesy

Tell me what you think.

16  First time Figure. . . a Witch in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by jenihall on: October 11, 2007 08:31:33 PM
I didn't want to put this one in the "Halloween" catagory becuase I think it will get more hits here. This was my first attempt at making a figurine. I was going to make her really simple and cartoonish but it was never good enough. Once I got the face done I knew I was in trouble because I had to make a body to match. This was more time consuming than I thought it would be,  but totally addicting! I think I might do more of these little babies. Her arm is a little saggy and looks kind of awkward but hey, it was my first time. Tell me what you think!

Here is her head and hat.

This is her almost done, she needs makeup.

And here she is all cooked and complete.

17  Amazing kid's shirts, check this out! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by jenihall on: October 10, 2007 12:32:25 PM
This is the coolest thing under the sun! I found out how to use bleach to create really cool kid's clothes. I made a couple of stencils from transperancy film/acetate and stuck them to these shirts. Then all you have to do is spray and outline (bleach pens are really handy for these projects) and rinse.  And Viola! You have a cute original t-shirt!

Does anyone have any ideas or links for stencils for future projects?


Frog (this one is kinda hard to see, it looks better in real life)

18  Spoooky halloween beads! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by jenihall on: October 08, 2007 11:07:23 AM
So, I was in Iowa visiting my sister and was telling her all about how cool polymer clay is, and this is what I made! I made Lace Cane "spiderweb" beads and some little halloween buddies, a cat, a ghost, a pumpkin, a spider, a witches/wizards hat, candycorn, and a spider. Cool eh? I have never done little figures before. I mostly do pendants and beads. Hope you like them. I had a fabulous time designing them!
