12  corduroy leaf skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ledleeaf on: September 20, 2008 11:18:02 AM
here's a silly little skirt I made to wear to a work party.  Makes me laugh.  It's orange corduroy with fake leaves sewn to the hem.  There's a petticoat under it to make it all fluffy

(I'm all sweaty from dancing in this picture, the skirt was quite twirly on the dance floor)

I used your technique for some pins for my friend's bday, thought I would share the link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=268524.0

I've been doing leaves in resin too, so I was excited to see your version of that!

14  Firefly bag- tons of pics in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ledleeaf on: September 12, 2008 02:27:45 PM
Here's a bag I made for my friend's bday this Sunday.  I don't know if I'll be able to wait that long to give it to her.  She loves loves loves firefly (the old tv show).  I made everything except the strap, which I purchased at Michael's.

Here is the bag:

And some CUs of the pins I made.  They're resin pendents of the Serenity logo wrapped in felt and beads (used this tut https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=255127.0)  I added one more pin to the front after I took the pictures.

Her favorite quote on the back as an extra pocket.  I ironed the material onto freezer paper and then put it through my inkjet printer.  I used Papyrus font as that is the font they used for the Serenity movie poster.

And when  you open flap:

A look at the inside, lots of pockets for credit cards and license, with bonus naked picture of captain tightpants.

A good look at the cell phone pocket.  Not sure if this was the best spot for it, but it's where the material wanted me to put it.

I just sort of cut and sewed, so there's no pattern.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

15  Re: The random RESIN question thread! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by ledleeaf on: August 12, 2008 03:01:05 PM
Okay, could not find the answer by searching, so my question is- is there any substance I can use to fill holes in my resin.  I made some pendents by filling a mold, letting it dry and then filling the mold again and putting the first resin piece on top the mold.  This worked for about half of the resin pendents.  The other half had holes in them from where the two pieces separated or air bubbles were.  Any ideas on something thicker than resin that won't flow out of the holes during drying, yet still dry clear?

16  camera bean bag tripod cozy in Completed Projects by ledleeaf on: July 26, 2008 11:51:44 PM
So my friend has this neat little bean bag thing that he can mount his camera to and use basically anything as a decent tripod.  So, he asked me to sew him something so he could strap the beanbag down to stuff.  And thus the bean bag tripod cozy was born.  It's made of strong outdoor material and straps; super proud of getting all that to go through the sewing machine.  I put some of those things you have on your backpack to adjust the length of the straps on there too.

And now, pictures.

First here's the bean bag tripod on the left and the cozy I made on the right.  This shot looks like a bra to me, hehe:

And now a shot of the bean bag tripod modeling the cozy, looking all tentacle like:

And finally a pic of the cozy alone with the straps stuffed inside:

17  Tattoo Wine Charms in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by ledleeaf on: July 20, 2008 01:46:52 AM
My friend had a birthday party tonight at a wine bar and she seems to love wine, so I made her these beaded charms to put on her wine glasses (you know, so everyone can remember which glass is theirs).  The little bird pictures in the charms are from her tattoo, so she seemed to like them a lot.  Let's just hope she likes them as much when she's sober and in a well lit room!   Cheesy

18  Re: strapless dress in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by ledleeaf on: June 19, 2008 11:08:55 AM
beautiful dress and a very cute girl! My daughter also wants  a strapless dress, the problem is that it comes off when she moves  Cheesy. Any tips how to make it stay?  She is 5 yrs old and i tried to make her understand that she needs boobs to make it stay ha ha ha...

When I was a wee one, we lived in the dessert and I had a couple strapless tops.  But they were all that scrunchie material that has like six pieces of elastic in it and they stayed up just fine.  You know, the material like in the adorable little sundresses.
