241  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / 2 bird brooches on: March 03, 2008 08:44:41 PM
I got tired of making hearts like this, so decided to try some birdies instead!  Fabrics used are scraps of silk on the top one, and faux leather animal prints on the lower one.  Seams are covered by sewing on bits of ribbon, trim and fibers.  I used a real feather for the wing on the lower one.  The pic isn't very clear - I'm photography-challenged!

Oh wow ... these are scrumptious!  I loved your doughnut bracelet you posted previously, but these 'take the cake' (! lame pun, sorry ....!)  Great job.

I wish I was your swap partner!  This is beautiful.  You did a great job.  Love it.
244  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / NEW ZEALAND / Re: Anyone else has an ETSY shop? on: March 02, 2008 04:24:07 PM
I'm new here, and was searching the threads on selling one's creations online, and see this thread was started awhile ago, so was hoping someone could give me an update for 2008 (after the introduction of NZ sites like Felt and Toggle, plus of course Trade Me).  What's the feeling on these 3 options, as well as Etsy?  I've had interest from a few small boutiques (on consignment) but am seriously thinking that selling my items myself, versus putting a higher price on them and having the shop get their half (or whatever) share, is a better option.  I HATE peddling my creations shop-to-shop (I don't take rejection very well!  LOL).  Any help/advice/ideas would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in anticipation ...
(If you'd like to see what I make, so that you can give me relevant advice, please check out my Craftster gallery.  Thanks.)

I'm not on the Nth Shore, but I would suggest you ask at one of the needlework/patchwork shops, or even the craft section (upstairs) at Spotlight.  Might have some luck there.  Hope you find one.

Love it!  Great job.  I love big chunky jewelery like this too.
247  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / A few more pics on: March 01, 2008 03:21:13 PM
I've made a few more bits of jewelry for my DD:

2 more brooches from scraps

Felt squares & beads on stretchy flex (got this idea from a fabulous book by Deborah Schneebeli-Morell called "Bead & Button, Ribbon & Felt Jewelry")

Pretty ribbon & beads threaded onto stretchy flex.

Chiffon ribbon threaded with beads on stretchy flex.

Another scrap fabric, ribbon, button, trim, fiber & faux leather cuff bracelet.

Incredible edibles!  Wow, I love them!  Great job.  Have you tried liquorice Allsorts done the same way?  Easy and they look good on a bracelet too.  Didn't take pics of the ones I made and have given them away, but the idea is the same.  Love your yummy looking chocolates!  Mmmmm ...!  Please share more of your delicious creations with us, calorie-free ....!! LOL
249  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Eat cake! on: February 29, 2008 12:25:36 PM
Not sure if this should be under polymer or papercrafts, but after oohing and aahing over Porge Creations' beautiful food jewelery, I remembered I had this birthday card I'd made awhile ago.  The slice of cake is embellished on the top with 'sprinkles' of microbeads embedded in clear Dimensional Magic.  The fork is a charm and the plate is a punched circle of card rubber stamped with a border design.

Love your felt/stitched cuffs whitebelt!  Gorgeous.  I did the brown one (far right in my pic) more or less the same way.  Laid lots of fibers onto a strip of cheap felt and sewed and sewed and sewed (wish I had an embroidery foot on my 38 year old Elna sewing machine!).  Embellished with beads and charms, hand sewn. For the other ones I cut a piece of leather (although 2 of them are done on felt) a bit bigger than what I wanted the final product to be, then laid fusible webbing (iron-on stuff) onto it, laid the strips of ribbon, fabric, faux leather, etc. on top, ironed it to fuse the lot, zigzag sewed them down, added some fibers along the sewing line, cut the whole thing to size, edged with that Fray-Stop stuff (you can also use fabric glue I guess) and zigzag stitched around the whole thing.  Embellished with buttons, beads and other good stuff.  Oh yes, sewed elastic pony holders between the 2 layers before the final zigzag around the edge (on the pale green/pink one I used narrow strips of leather for the loops - elastic is better though - more 'give').  I think that's all folks!  Hope this helps with your queries ...
P.S.  The 2 heart brooches here https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showgallery.php?cat=500&ppuser=129371 were made the same way.
