101  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / press-button jewels on: December 12, 2007 01:37:32 AM
I've bought a jewelry findings-kit on eBay and a couple of days ago it finally arrived! But I didn't had any beads so I came up with using 'sew-on' press-buttons. I don't like to use those on clothes, so I had a lot of them just laying around. Because I am not really wearing a lot of jewels, I really love the end result, it is so simple  Smiley These are just basic, but maybe in the future I'll make some more complex patterns  Grin

102  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / my attempt at the wee bunny on: December 09, 2007 09:50:15 AM
This is the first doll I made. I thought this "wee bunny" in the tutorial list looked super cute and not too difficult to make  Cheesy(http://weewonderfuls.typepad.com/wee_wonderfuls/store/wee-bunny.html)

Unless I followed the instructions very good, it was really not that easy as I expected. I came out with this creature  Grin

I decided to give him to a friend for his birthday. So I wanted to make him more sturdy and gave him a tie. I didn't have a lot of time so I've partly put it together with some textile glue.

Note: I used recycled fabrics. He's made from a curtain, a sweater and a dress :-)

103  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / vintage fabric on canvas? on: December 06, 2007 06:02:34 AM
I have found a great vintage 70s fabric. Now I had the idea to put it on a wooden canvas for hanging it as a decoration. (Would make a perfect gift!) But I have no idea how I should do this... Any suggestions?  Embarrassed
104  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 23 ENTRIES / frightful 90s sweater transformed into fluffy boots on: December 02, 2007 03:40:20 PM

I just found out about this community and it's challenge. This was really my cup of tea (two lumps of sugar please... Grin)!
My life is all about thrifty finds. Almost everything in my house is second hand and I even worked in a thrift store (= 'kringloopwinkel' in Belgium) some while ago. I am really passioned about making something out of nothing, giving value to things other people find worthless.

So off I went hunting  Cheesy I knew already what I was going to make: a pair of thick, HOT slippers for using inside the house. (Like a lot of women I often suffer from cold feet.) I easily found an atrocious jumper, made out of a hideous printed(!) fleece. As you see on the price-label, it costed me 2,50 (or 3,66$)

Somewhere in a distant corner of the house I found a boring, slightly dirty pillow to use as the filler of my booties. When I opened it, the first thing that I thought was  "Lips sealed OMG! The hair of a dead afro-head"... Really horrifying at first, but now I know better: It's amazing warm stuff  Grin!

I started sewing since a couple of months, so this was really a challenge! I almost gave up on it, but here they are... I am quite proud of them!!!

Inside view:

Surprise! You can wear them in two ways, cuffed or uncuffed. When cuffed, another pearl is peeping out.

Thanks for looking and another BIG thanks if you vote for me!!! (as I am a newbie to craftster)

Hello everybody,

I am a 23-year old girl from Belgium and I am very excited to find out about this forum. This would be my first post and my third bag I ever made. It's a bag with two cats on it that I made for a friend named Katty  Embarrassed Smiley Thanks for looking!
