1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Old game tiles = bracelet on: July 29, 2009 11:35:08 AM

My mom and I really enjoy playing scrabble, so when we saw this game called Banannagrams, we thought it would be similarly fun, but we didn't really like it.  So I've been using the tiles to make bracelets.  I drilled holes into the tiles with my dremel and I used some old steel rings I had from when I used to make chainmaille to put them together and then I just added a closure I had from a big value pack I had bought a long time ago.  Voila!  (Almost) instant bracelet.
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Screen Printed Flutes! on: July 27, 2009 11:13:27 AM

My co-worker's son's birthday is August 1 and she really wanted to make this shirt for him, but couldn't figure out how to go about it, so I told her I would do it!  First I thought of stencils, but that would have been way too complicated.  So, I remembered I had seen a tutorial here on how to make a screen with modge podge and curtain sheers.  I used acrylic paint mixed with textile medium and I think I got it a little too thin, but otherwise I'm really happy with it. 
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / The Adventures of Pete & Pete Quilt (Img Heavy) on: March 28, 2009 12:54:50 PM
This is a quilt that I made in tribute to one of my favorite tv shows from when I was a kid.  I took some of the images from online and the others I captured screenshots from the dvds and converted them to drawings in a photo program.  Then I traced the images onto fabric using fabric markers and a lightbox.  At first, I thought I would embroider the squares, but I decided I didn't have the patience.  I searched until I found some cotton fabric with the black and red pattern for the borders because I knew I wanted it to look like Little Pete's hat.  The backing is just plain black fleece.  It is machine quilted.  I don't know exactly how big it is, but I think it would fit on a full size bed.  I made it for my boyfriend's birthday (Pete & Pete also happens to be one of his favorite shows). 

Thanks for looking!
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My version of the Shag Bag on: March 19, 2009 08:44:49 AM
I saw this post:


and I knew I had to make one of my own.  So, I went to the dollar store bought a couple of car cleaning mitts, ripped the seams and sewed them together.  The handles are made out of jewelry chain inside of plastic vinyl tubing.  I was too lazy to sew any more of the green stuff together for a handle-my sewing machine didn't like it.  I also took the white lining out 'cause it was too much of a pain to get lined up right.

Thanks for looking!
