121  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Mushroom purse on: December 06, 2007 08:32:09 AM
I made this bag for a friend of mine as a birthday gift. I found a tutorial for this here [it's German, but the pictures should help a lot, too.]
I used red and white cotton, the white dots were painted with fabric paint. Painting took the most time, actually xD

122  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / No more cold hands! on: December 05, 2007 11:15:41 AM
In fact I don't even know what the English word for this thing is  Cheesy (Couldn't find it in my dictionary, either... *cough*)
But... erm. It keeps ones hands warm... and that's about it *lol*

It can be worn either with the black/white oder the black/red side showing.

123  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tea Party reloaded on: November 26, 2007 08:23:33 AM
A while ago I made a bag I called "Tea Party" (for obvious reasons *lol*)
I was asked to make the same one again, but big enough for school. The picture is slightly different because it's not a stencil but painted.
I forgot to add the satin bows before I took the first pictures, but you cann see them on the last one ^^

124  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Cupcake earrings on: November 25, 2007 02:45:37 AM
Made of polymer clay... they could be better, but I still think they're cute.

125  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Belt made of cards ~ Added tutorial! on: November 25, 2007 02:43:24 AM
I got this idea from here, but decided to use cards instead of other pictures. I had to curve the belt a bit to make it fit on my hips and I used self-adhesive film. The buckle is taken from an old and broken belt of mine.
There are some folds on it and the seams aren't perfect, but I still like it.

Edit: Here's the tutorial I promised - please remember: I used a tutorial myself and only changed a few things, credit for the original tutorial goes to Schuldig.groben.Unfugs.
I don't know if it's actually understandable, but I tried my best  Cheesy

What you need:
- A deck of cards (you won't need all the cards, though)
- foil (I used sticky foil, you could also use the normal kind like in the original tutorial) Edit: The stuff is called "contact paper" Wink It just has a completely different name here...
- a belt buckle
- some eyelets
- small pieces of synthetic leather
- adhesive tape

I started with fixing the cards into a slightly curved belt. It works best to take two cards and let them overlap a tiny bit on the upper side and fix them with adhesive tape on the backside.

Continue doing this until your belt is a bit longer than your hip size.

If your buckle is smaller than the cards you need to cut the belt a bit where the buckle will be. (Black line: original form, red line: new form)

I attached another piece of card for the buckle.

Then I took the other end of the belt and adjusted the width of the cards there, too. It has to fit through the buckle on the overlapping part of the belt, you can see this quite well on this picture:

After that I took the adhesive foil and glued it on the front side of the belt. I cut the foil a bit larger than the actual belt and folded the overlapping parts to the backside.

Then I added two holes for the buckle (depends on the kind of buckle you use) and attached the buckle to the belt.
You can use more adhesive tape for this or add a seam to fix it.
After that I sew around the whole belt with white thread (by sewing machine).

Then I added the eyelets - I tired the belt on, marked where the eyelets should be and marked two other positions, too (one larger and one smaller one)
I glued some small parts of synthetic leather on the backside of the belt  (where the eyelets should be), punched holes and added the eyelets.
126  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Yay for skirts! [picture heavy] on: November 25, 2007 02:24:59 AM
I love making skirts, so here are some I have made  Smiley

An older one, tartan and black cotton. The chains can be taken off.

My favourite skirt... black and grey cotton.

Fits my sister, too ^^

Another one... I don't know how the proper name is in English, but it's made from a complete circle of fabric. I also added a ruff - the hem is 8 meters long  Cheesy
I actually made it for myself, but my sister mostly wears it to her dance classes  Roll Eyes

I more elegant one... the photo is taken from a weird ankle. I'm fat, but not that much xD
The fabric is elastic, so I can actually walk while wearing the skirt. Climbing stairs is a bit of a problem, though...

And another favourite of mine: pink tartan <3
The straps for the buckle are made of synthetic leather, the straps on the back were originally two lanyard keychains. There are skulls on it, the picture is a bit to bulrry I think.

127  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Capri Sonne (capri sun ;) ) bag + WIP on: November 25, 2007 02:07:55 AM
I guess it's not the most creative idea any more, but it's one of my favourite bags though Wink
A bag made of German Capri Sun packages. Plus Denim lining to make it more solid and an inside bag for my mobile.
I wrote a WIP for this... it's German only atm, but you can at least look at the pictures if you want to  Smiley

-> Work in progress

128  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Some of my bags on: November 25, 2007 02:03:14 AM
Since bags are my favourite kind of projects I decided to show some of my recent (or less recent) creations here  Smiley

A mix of striped cotton fabric and black fake fur, decorated with some lace trim, a ribbon and a strawberry button:

Same style, but black/white skull fabric and white lace instead:

A belt pouch made of synthetic leather and black/red striped cotton fabric, decorated with... various things  Smiley I love the button!
I made this one for myself, but I hardly ever use it. I don't really know why, I think it's cute xD
The lining is a bit darker than the tone of red on the outside and there are some folds. I could have done better there I guess.

A bag made of sevral black/white patterned fabrics. I'm quite proud of this one and already working on more of these ^^

Another bag... made of fabric that I simply had to buy because it was so cute... but it's not really my style xD

comments? criticism?
129  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Hey everyone =) on: November 24, 2007 01:29:47 PM
I thought it would be a good idea to introduce myself...

Basic stuff: I'm called Eva, 20 years old and I live in Germany.
Less basic stuff: I've been sewing for a for years now and have started to actually learn how to sew in August (at a fashion and sewing school which is simply awesome). I'm planning to turn my favourtie hobby into a job  Smiley
I like music (many kinds, but mostly metal, gothic and medieval rock or folk rock/metal), dancing, going out with friends, discworld novels and... well, crafts Wink
