1  Teesha - esque (sorta kinda) bag (pic FATTY) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kuckyjune on: July 03, 2014 01:00:27 PM
I made this bag for my friend's birthday. I'm not much of an embroiderer, my hands just can't take too much of it, so most of this is machine sewn. I used lots of patches, paint, beads etc. My favorite part is the strap. I used the straps and  buckles(?) from an old pair of overalls because I wanted the strap a bit longer and I LOVE how it turned out. Now I just hope she likes it as much... Roll Eyes

This tute gave me the inspiration to try a bag like this:

And this one is where I got the construction instructions I still use for almost all of my bags:

2  Woodburned SIFF necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by kuckyjune on: July 03, 2014 12:34:17 PM
I made this for my friend's birthday. She is a volunteer for SIFF (Seattle International Film Festival) and totally flipped out over it! Grin
Its pretty simple,I already had the wood with the holes pre-drilled. So I just looped some of this braided green cord through and tied it off. The logo is reversed on either side so she can wear it how she likes on any given day.

I've used this tutorial several times now. Here are just some of the bags I've made using this technique, with just minor tweeks for different styles.

This was for my sister's birthday.

This was for Dragonflower in round 2 of the Ancient Cultures Swap.

And this one was for krizzle in the Inglorious Grindhouse: Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez Swap

 I made this for my friend's birthday last month. This is something he says...A LOT.  Wink
His apt. is done in red and black, so I just took some red fabric, ironed on the letters, and wrapped it around a piece of cardboard. There's a piece of black felt glued to the back to cover the edges, but I forgot to get a pic. The "frame" is actually the door to an old jewelry box, I just took out the glass and painted it gloss black.  There's no hanger, because I'm lazy.  Grin

6  An uncommonly gentle man. in Completed Projects by kuckyjune on: January 16, 2012 10:56:06 AM
I made this Edward Scissorhands woodburning based on a simplified/tweaked version one of the movie posters. I had the wood for quite a while and I knew I wanted it to run up/down, so it was hard to find an image that I liked and would fit. I wasn't sure about splitting him in 1/2 lengthwise like I did, but I am super happy with how he turned out. The wood is stained with watercolor paint and then lightly sealed with Thompson's wood seal.

7  TARDIS bag for my sister in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by kuckyjune on: November 26, 2011 11:01:13 AM
My sister's birthday was a couple of days ago, and since she is way into Dr. Who I made her a TARDIS purse/tote.

I used the basic insructions from this tute: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51187.0  and changed the sizes a bit. Not being a Dr. Who fan myself, I was worried whether I got the details right. But she seemed to really like it. The light on the top has velcro on both sides for a clasp of sorts.  Anyhoo, onto the pics!

The red on the bottom of the bag in this one is just a piece of loose string that got stuck to it, its not attached. Wink

8  Hospital Bed Bag for Grams in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kuckyjune on: September 15, 2011 11:52:00 AM
So, I'm not sure if this is the right spot for this, but it didn't seem to fit anywhere else. Mods feel free to move it. Wink

My Grams just had her 80th birthday. I wanted to make her something pretty, but also something she needed. My Aunt (who is her caregiver) suggested that she could use a bag to hang on the rail of her hospital bed for used tissues etc. This is what I came up with, her favorite color is blue and she loves butterflies.  It's fully lined, machine washable, has adjustable velcro straps and a pocket on the front for her to keep her sudoku books etc in.



Pocket (not sure if you can see, but the button on the bow is a butterfly, too):

Back (kinda messy  Undecided ):

What do you think? She seemed to really like it.  Smiley

9  A couple more rugs in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by kuckyjune on: August 11, 2011 10:46:13 AM
 Our house is only carpeted in the bedrooms, otherwise its hardwood or tile. That's fine for us, but our dog on the other hand spins out on the slick floors all the time. Usually its just kind of amusing, but on occasion she slips and hurts herself. Never anything serious, but still, I don't want my little girl laid up so I've been making rugs. I made this one a few weeks ago https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=386277.msg4569034#msg4569034 and made this first one the same way:

This second one I totally winged. I had to trim around the edges of the bottom piece to make it match because the patch work somehow wanted to get wider as I went along. I'm looking forward to seeing how this looks after a few washings, I left the edges free so they would fray. :

And a shot of my inspiration enjoying the red rug  Grin:

10  John Deere Kitchen Curtains in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by kuckyjune on: August 05, 2011 01:28:46 PM
 For the longest time my hubby and I have had an old Jack Daniels flag as our kitchen curtain. There was no rod when we moved in, so we tacked it up as a temporary fix (the sun blasts in that window in the afternoon and the kitchen gets HOT.) Of course, as often happens, it got left up way to long. So when we found a really nice curtain rod (still in the package and with all its hardware) for $2.99 at a thrift store, I figured it was time to finally make some curtains. I already had the John Deere fabric, the brown lace I used for loops, and the white I used to line them. Sorry there's no before pic, but trust me - you ain't missing much.  Cheesy
