81  Pulp clutch purse (The red one) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Rascal Kosher on: January 22, 2008 05:29:12 AM
I saw this cardboard books at my local craft shop and
this idea popped up in my head as I stood there.

I have a thing for old pulp book covers and since I have
a collection at home I decided to scan and laminate my
favorites. Turned out that I had a lot of favorites so I
thought it would be cool if I have one on each side for
more variation of the clutch.

I sprayed the cardboard book/box, made a hole for the
elastic band and the paper fastener (who in this case were
sprayed black first) then I glued some felt on the inside
and the laminated covers on each side.

Easy and in my opinion  a very cool clutch purse.
(Yes, I got tons of compliments on the 50's scene when I
went to see a friend gigging.)  Grin

The result:

83  MY OWN HANUKIAH in Winter Holidays by Rascal Kosher on: November 28, 2007 04:57:32 AM
I actually made my own Hanukiah.  Grin
I'm from Sweden but I've been living in England for a year
now and I dedicated it to my love for Stockholm.  Smiley
The black and white pattern is the same pattern as the
main square Plattan in Stockholm City and there's a praying
Jew for every day of Hanukkah.

How I did it:
I used a tin Hanukiah that I got for almost nothing at a
Jewish bazaar (at the flea market section).
I sprayed it with black matte spray paint, let it dry.
I glued on laminated paper (the black and white pattern)
and then cut out and laminated the praying Jews, glued
them on and let it all dry.

So, what do you think?
Shmate or geld?

84  FROM DUVET COVER TO CURTAINS in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Rascal Kosher on: November 28, 2007 04:33:14 AM
Sorry but here comes a long post...
(I don't know if this is the right place for it.)

One year ago I moved to England from Sweden and it actually
is the small things that make a difference.
(But hey, I'm flexible and won't let anything stop me from
make my home a better and prettier place to live.)

Anyway, my darling uses a king size duvet, most Swedes uses
a single duvet, we don't want to share or fight for a warm cover
during those cold winter nights so we want to have our own.
So little ol' me had seven pair of single bed-sets that I didn't
want to give to charity or throw them away because I knew I could
find some use for them one day and last Saturday I finally did.

I turned two duvet covers into curtains.
A while ago I decided to retire our old blue curtains because we
don't have anything blue in the house and I wanted to make a
beach set for my sweetie (shirt and shorts) from those old curtains.
(Yes, I will post pictures whenever that project is finished.)
So I ripped the net or tape or whatever it's called from the old
curtains and sewed them on to the duvet covers after stitching the
entrance in the bottom for the duvet, of course.

The pillow cases will turn into smaller pillow cases in a near

My honey really likes them and so do I.
It might not look so very nice in the pictures so you just have to
take my word for it.  Wink

85  SPRAY BOTTLE, BEFORE AND AFTER in Completed Projects by Rascal Kosher on: November 27, 2007 02:15:51 PM
Hi everybody!
This is my first post so I hope this works out as it should
and that you all feeling fine and dandy today.

First off, I love black matte spray paint and I use it often
for various craft projects.
This is no exception.

I needed a spray-bottle for water for my hair and for ironing 
but they are often very ugly and doesn't suit my style.
I decided to revamp a bottle I found for 1.

I used black matte spray paint and a water sticker with a cute
pin-up that I found in Sweden.
It wasn't harder than that.

Here it is before:

And here it is after:

(Did you noticed that she's holding an umbrella, I thought that
was neat because for the water that comes out of it.)
