Thank you for your nice comments! 

I truly hope others take on this idea.  It seems a shame to leave these pieces of history sitting in boxes forgotten about.  At least this way, every year they get taken out and put on display, and shared with family.

Ohhh.. I am dying to make this for myself!  I love the hat most especially!  I agree that using a fuzzy material would give it a different dimension!  ... Oh my gosh.. and I think I have some cat-eye buttons somewhere..  Thanks for sharing this project!

This is incredible!  I have painted lots of shoes for my clown costume.. I like painter markers (made by elmers).. and acrylics work great too.  You might be an established seamstress.. but i believe you have a future in painting.. and combing the two is just genius!

Wow!  You are a TRUE visionary!  I love that you saw her in her down-trodden state and could visualize a new existence for her.  I hope you make more clothes for her.. I suspect she has gone from down-trodden to DIVA.

First of all.. not only is she ridiculously CUTE... but what an adorable name!  Your pictures are well thought out, the way you show the materials lend to a "tutorialesque" following of how to go about piecing this together.  Craftsters beware.. you cannot make such a cutie without bestowing an equally cute name!
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Heirloom Ornaments--FAB upcycle! on: December 06, 2009 07:28:33 PM
Recently, My family went through OLD jewelry left to us from Grandma and our Aunt Mary.  Most of it was outdated, broken, mismatched, aged and dull... though all reeking of utter fascination and history!

An idea I had was to convert some of the pieces to ornaments.  (Easy thinking when you are accustomed to pirating vintage jewelry)  I felt that in this way, some of the men in the family could also hold on to some of these keepsakes.

This is my first post.. so please notify me if I need to do something different to make these images viewable!!

I hope my project idea is inspiring to some of you!

I love magnetic poetry!  I do believe you found an efficient way to create this fun gift idea.

I was wondering how you were planning on packaging these?  I made some for a nine year old girl, and put them in a vintage lunchbox so that the entire poetry set was portable and could go on road trips with her.  Later, she told me she took some of them out and put them in a small tin to carry in her backpack.

This project looks professional and is inspirational!

I wonder if you could use Felt?  I found this very festive felt with the sparkle already on it... so I may try my hand at it.

Also, thanks for such a clear-cut easy to follow tutorial!

These are just beautiful!  I bet this would be a great project for a girl scout troop!  Are you putting these on your tree? Pictures of them on a tree would be very nice.

Well Done!  Your uniqueness shines through your design style!  Only a true artist could have a room so eclectically put together. My favorite spot is the "ink-blot" painted corner.
