2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / recycled thrift store sweater= beautiful new bag (WITH PICS :)) on: January 30, 2006 04:42:53 AM
the material is a felted wool sweater embellished with needlefelted wool, crocheted piping, and lined with recycled sari fabric.  it's mostly hand-stitched and took hours, partly because i'm new to making bags and partly because i just couldn't stop decorating it!  it was really satisfying, especially since i spent $2 on materials- plus it's 100% recycled.  even the thread.

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / reversible necklace from antique playing card tile (PICS!) on: January 21, 2006 03:20:00 PM
i found a box of these tiles at a thrift store- they sort of remind me of mah jong tiles, but with playing card images- i have no idea how one would play a game with them, so i'm making jewelry instead.

one side has the "1" of hearts, and on the other i decoupaged a tarot card of cupid.

the rest is copper, silver, garnets, amethysts, moonstone, and czech glass.

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / recycled felted sweater purselet with needlefelted designs on: March 01, 2005 06:35:06 AM
here's my first felted purse- i felted a thrift store sweater, cut it up and resewed it, knit a handle, and add needlefelted embellishments.  so tiny.  so cheap.  so satisfying. Smiley

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / easy beaded snowflake ornaments: tutorial (complete w/ photos) on: November 18, 2004 02:40:25 PM
happy holy-daze!
here's a little something to whip up for your tree (or to give away, or even assemble kits for).

you will need:
beading wire or other fine gauge wire (i used 24 gauge)
wire snips
round nose pliers

1 cut 5 pieces of wire, each about 4-5 inches long.
2 holding them all together, tie a knot in the middle.

3 spread the wires out evenly around the knot.

4 slide your beads on one wire "arm", and finish with a spiral to hold the beads in place.  repeat with the other arms, then attatch fishing line or wire to hang.  how easy was that?  

you could even get really crazy and tie a whole bunch of wires together and spread them out to be a 3-d starburst.  or, as you can kind of see below, wrap the wires around something fun, like sea glass.  or make really tiny ones for earrings!  or make a bunch and hang them on a dead branch, like so:

i've been making blank books, all less than 5"x 7", using old (ugly) game boards and other recycled materials mixed in with some new and handmade stuff, as well as a few tiny mirrors.  they're all bound with coptic stitch and wheat paste.
