1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Holiday decorations on: December 06, 2010 07:34:56 AM
I made my decorations this year. My husband hates them (he would prefer something more traditional), but I don't care. They make me happy!

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Ideas: Making a gift out of wedding invitations? on: June 30, 2008 05:41:27 PM
I'd like to make a gift for my cousin's wedding, using the wedding invitation and the shower invitation. I don't want to just frame them.
Maybe make something unrelated using the papers? I'm stuck.
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Jewelry roll for traveling jewels on: May 04, 2008 05:01:44 PM
Vacation is coming up, and I'm tired of carrying my jewelry in plastic baggies! I travel with a jewelry "wardrobe," so I needed something that could handle it. I also couldn't find a jewelry roll for under $35, which I thought was ridiculous for something that I could make myself if I put my mind to it.
So I put my mind to it. Smiley
It has one big pocket with a snap, several small pockets, ribbons for my earrings, and a padded thingie with a snap for my rings.
Whaddya think?

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Question about dress forms on: February 02, 2008 09:18:48 AM
I've just started using my sewing machine for more than repairs and throw-together costumes! Yay!
However, since I can't follow a pattern to save my life, I find that I'm limited in what I can make without having a dressform to drape it.
Do you use a dressform? What does it look like? What do you like or dislike about it? If you have a relatively new one, what brand is it? What do you suggest?
I need one that will handle plus sizing, as well. *sigh*
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Wine stoppers on: January 03, 2008 08:10:17 PM
I made these as gifts. The tops are wooden balls from the craft store, painted with acrylic and then lacquered. To attach the cork, I drilled a hole into the cork. Then I cut the heads of some screws. I glued one end of the screw into the hole in the wooden ball, and screwed the other end into the cork (after I stuck some glue in there). They are hardy as anything.
I made an extra for myself, too. It's a good excuse to buy wine. Smiley

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My First t-shirt on: January 03, 2008 08:01:56 PM
Okay, so maybe t-shirt deconstruction/reconstruction is a common post, but i made this and I'm proud of it. Dammit.
Made for a friend who's very, very crunchy. I reycled a t-shirt and an old thermal. Used textile inks for the lettering and some scrap fabric for the applique.
The whole thing is very, very soft.
