131  Rustic Holiday Pillows in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by ehinders on: December 03, 2009 02:40:53 PM
I made these pillows out of burlap and felt embellishments I found at the Dollar Tree. My mom had given me a huge pile of pillow forms she got at an auction.

Red burlap and snowflake. I fringed the edges on this one

Regular brown burlap and a Christmas tree:

Regular burlap and grey and white snowflakes. The snowflakes on this one had holes in them to hang as ornaments so I added the bow in the existing holes.

I just did a simple envelope back in case I ever wanted to change out the case:

I'm thinking I need to make the bow out of twine on the grey and white snowflake one. What do you guys think?

I did make a mini tute on my blog here if anyone is interested.

C & C always welcome!

132  Latest Necklaces in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by ehinders on: December 01, 2009 08:53:42 AM
I cranked out a few necklaces recently that I thought I would share.
First is a chunky chained piece that has a vintage spoon handle pendant and some other trinkets. I used a ribbon for the closure at the top:

Here's a vintage spoon handle pendant on just a silver snake chain:

Finally, I altered a domino with vintage images of a boy and girl. It's reversible with one pic on each side of the pendant:

133  Gift Boxes and Santa Sign in Winter Holidays by ehinders on: December 01, 2009 08:32:39 AM
I love Christmas! It's my favorite time of year. I jumped into my stash of Christmas scrapbooking paper recently and made a few things:

I covered some plain matchboxes I had laying around. All of them are big enough for a gift card or some jewelry except the one with just one Santa Head on it (he's just a little guy!):

Using some of that same paper, I made this sign:

I thought it turned out really cute! The base is some heavy duty chipboard I got at my Dollar Tree. I wish I would've gotten a bunch more of these, cause now when I went back they didn't have them anymore! Sad

Sorry the pics aren't the greatest. My camera's flash died, and this was the best I could do with natural light. New camera has been ordered and is on the way!

C and C always welcome!

And the best thing, a sock monkey style Ood!

135  Latest stuff in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by ehinders on: October 29, 2009 08:49:52 AM
I've been doing a lot of jewelry again lately. Here's some of the stuff I've gotten done:
Cupcake earrings (these are just post earrings):

Bracelet made from vintage dominoes:

And my favorite, a bracelet made from an old pie server:

Here's a view of it from the side so you can see the end of the server:

I love it! I made some other silverware stuff for my Mom's shop, but forgot to take pics of it before I left it there.  Roll Eyes I would ask her to take some and email me them, but it would be a nightmare to walk my non-tech savvy mother through it!  Cheesy

C & C always welcome!

136  Re: Ongoing ATC Swap -- September --sign ups 9.01.09-9.30.09 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by ehinders on: October 02, 2009 01:44:53 PM
I received awhile ago. Sorry it's taken so long to post pics. I lost my camera cord (again)! I found it now, so I have two cards to post.

First, from Corduroy Cat, a reading themed card. I took a pic of the card she sent too, 'cause I thought it was neat that she had her name on it!

Close-up of the card so you can read the quote:

the book is slightly raised on the card, but you can't tell in the pic.

I also received a bird themed card from macnatalie:

I love the color of the feather.

Thanks gals!

I also received from TerraBella01, but didn't get a pic yet. I will try and post that in the next couple of days.

SimplyFabulous's package was waiting for me when I got home from a mini-vacation on Tuesday. Finally getting the pics posted now.  Roll Eyes

First up: a very pretty t-shirt:

I love that mermaid!

Next was a handpainted shell:

Gorgeous!! I'm envious of your painting skills Gwen!

A diorama (complete with sand castle right off my wist!)

A little mermaid beaded keychain

Extras: a boatload of shells (pun intended) and shark teeth!

Yay!! I love everything! Thanks SimplyFabulous!!!!!!
p.s. I know you were worried about everything getting here alright. It definitely did. The only problem was one of the feet on the diorama popped off, but I glued it right back on. You have some serious packing skills, girl! Wink

Once again, I apologize for not getting these up already. I thought I had and I've been taking a hiatus from Craftster due to some personal stuff.

Okay, here's the great stuff I got from erinmariez:
First, a Merlotte's apron. I've been using it as a crafting apron and it works great!

Next, a Fangtasia t-shirt:

An American Vampire League t-shirt:

Two pins:

A Bubba magnet (sorry for the blurry pic, none of my turned out right.):

and possibly my favorite, a Fangtasia logo mug!!

Gotta love that "jazzy script!" Wink

Thanks so much erinmariez! I love everything and have been wearing the shirts and using everything else constantly.

139  Two Pincushions in Completed Projects by ehinders on: August 25, 2009 01:06:43 PM
Most of the pincushions seem to be posted in here. So here goes. I made two pincushions recently.

One I made from a small (about 7 1/2 inches tall) tin chair that was a candleholder. I made the seat part into the cushion.

closeup of seat:

The other one I made from a terracotta basket I had. The basket is about 4 inches across and 3 1/2 inches high. I thought it looked like a picnic basket, so I used yellow and white gingham to simulate a picnic blanket.

C & C welcome!

140  Tentacle pillowcase: freezer paper and bleach in Stenciling: Completed Projects by ehinders on: August 05, 2009 10:01:09 AM
I love my freezer paper. And bleach. In fact I love them both so much that pretty much everything I use a freezer paper stencil on, I bleach instead of using fabric paint. I just like the effect better. My latest creation is a pillowcase....with tentacles. That's right I said tentacles!

I of course choose a black pillowcase, which meant loads of separate applications of the bleach, which meant that my freezer paper started to come up a bit and made the edges bleed. But in the end, I decided I liked the look. Here's a closer pic so you can see what I mean:

Whadya think?
