11  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / help me take pictures! please :) on: May 14, 2008 04:41:08 PM
ok, so i have a third hand (i'm broke) digital camera that i've been using to take pics of the stuff i make.  problems are, the viewfinder is wonky, plus the colors are off and i don't get the sharpest of images.  are there any tricks of the trade i'm missing?  i don't want to give up on the little guy since he was free, but it's driving me nuts...
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / cushioned reusable grocery bag... on: May 08, 2008 12:59:27 PM
i just wanted to share with you my latest grocery bag.  i've added felt between the layers to provide a bit of cushioning (i tend to buy a lot of stuff in jars that i'm always worried about breaking when they're in the car).  let me know what you think!!!

13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / new clutch! on: April 23, 2008 06:05:31 PM
so i just finished this clutch and i HAD to share it.  i really love it.  mainly because i heart the corduroy i used to make it.  and i've had this trim for years ago when i went to an nyc trim mill on a school trip.  let me know what you think!

14  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / bears, bibs, and towels...oh my! on: April 14, 2008 02:38:21 PM
so my family knows a lot of people that have been popping out kids lately.  my mom, the queen of gift giving for every occasion, has me make a bib and hooded towel for each baby we know.  let me know what you think.

15  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / sparkle bag! on: April 04, 2008 08:52:35 PM
ok, so i know i posted a bag in these fabrics last night, but now i am addicted to them.  i need suggestions for a closure though, so please feel free to comment.

 i love the gold loops i have the straps connected to:

i feel like the closure needs to jazz up the front since it's pretty boring...

I figured out a closure!  let me know what you think:

16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / i like big bags...a lot on: April 03, 2008 06:31:21 PM
so i've had these two fabrics for years and i LOVE them together but i never wanted to cut into them in case i might find that one perfect use for them later on.  i don't know why i was so worried, i have 10+ yards of each...anywhoo.

i like big bags so i figured i'd try and make one.  i made up the pattern and i think it worked pretty well.  it's lined in the denim but i forgot to take a picture of that and the camera battery just died...

close up of the pocket in between the straps:

comments?  suggestions?  i know sewing straight is a good suggestion..i just noticed how wonky the binding is!
17  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 26 ENTRIES / my attempt at a side table on: April 01, 2008 05:22:21 PM
this is my first entry so please be kind in your comments!
i started out with:
pizza pan, two glasses, tissue paper, two clipboards (which i didn't use), some rings i found in the wedding section, and lots and lots of super glue:

i glued the two glasses together (after using a ton of super glue to fix the glass that busted while i was making too quick of a right hand turn *sigh*) and covered them in the tissue paper.  i covered the pizza pan in tissue paper and the rings then glued them to the glasses.  voila!  my attempt at a side table...
