14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bright, Colorful, Rose Jewelry From Zippers on: January 02, 2009 09:41:02 AM
I have been making these like crazy lately, I am doing the Indie Sacramento
show on Saturday, so I will see how they sell.  I just love them because they are so colorful and interesting, definitely a conversation piece when someone notices they are made from a zipper!
Some little girl headbands made from plastic zippers

An array of Brooches, some plastic, some metal and some two tone:

Look how cute they look on a sweater:

I prefer stitching them, I feel like I can sculpt them better, but you can also use a low temp glue gun(just be careful of the glue showing)
Let me know what you think Grin
15  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Craft supply carry all tote made with a placemat and ziplock bags on: December 23, 2008 09:48:49 AM
My mom has made these for years for her quilter friends as gifts.  The are really great for organizing your craft supplies like embroidery floss, trim, or whatever.  I use mine all the time.  I made some for a craft fair, and they went over well.  let me know what you think, I could do a quick tutorial if anyone wants, they are super easy.  I picked up this placemat and the vintage trim at a thrift store and I buy the ziplock zipper freezer bags at Target (their brand)

Thanks for looking!
16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pink felted clutch lined with yummy Heather Bailey fabric on: November 23, 2008 07:36:51 PM
I really wanted to make a felted bag, and my knitting skills are very basic.  So I did a little research and came up with this:

This bag is lined with my favorite fabric designer of the moment, Heather Bailey.  I give instructions how to make this (it is really simple) on my BLOG

I made these earrings by using fabric stiffener on some vintage flower trim you would typically use for sewing.
I posted a tutorial on my BLOG
Check it out they were super easy to make and there are so many options of what type of fabric you can use.
18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Orange Crush Felted Clutch on: October 08, 2008 04:23:20 PM
I made this felted clutch, and I think it turned out lovely.  As most people know I Loooove the color orange and I fell in love with this wool yarn the moment I saw it.  I used a great vintage button for the closure, and lined it with this great cotton Heather Bailey fabric.

20  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / My Craft room is orange!!! I love it!!! on: August 29, 2008 06:40:22 PM
 I have been itching to paint my craftroom orange, I am an Orange freak Cool!!  So i finally got up the guts, and this is what happened.  I havn't finished my remodel but it looks a heck of a lot better.



I finally found a use for that beautiful  Shocked Veuve Cliquot (my favorite Champagne) Silk Scarf.  The pincushion painting is inspired by the tattoo in this post,
that I have been obsessed about since I saw it posted here on Craftster.  Here is a better shot of the painting:

My first painting!

Thanks for looking Cheesy
