2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / License plate mailbox on: August 19, 2009 04:56:39 PM
About a year ago i saw a license plate mailbox for sale on some website for about $300 and I really loved it but it wasn't the kind that was wall mounted so I didn't get it. (i also didn't want to spend $300 for a mailbox)

A few weeks ago I made a california mailbox and I kinda over did it and made a few more. Here is a picture of the one I have mounted.

the design is really simple but they are a pain in the butt to make. after making a few of these i have realized i am not as strong as i thought i was, i had to get my dad to break some of the rivets for me.
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Closures? on: July 31, 2009 02:19:22 PM

4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Bibs, Diaper bag, and Changing pad. on: October 05, 2008 02:03:02 PM
Yesterday was my cousins baby shower and I decided I would make her a gift. At first I was only going to make her some baby bibs, but then I decided to make a changing pad, bibs, and a diaper bag. She is also a student so I figure until the baby is born she can use it for college. I am still pretty new to sewing so there are a few mistakes but she really loved the gifts.

Changing pad. The back is fleece and it is covered with fusible vinyl.

the Velcro closure

The baby bibs, I made two of each print. It was pretty interesting making these, I am not used to doing curves so it was good practice.  Grin

This is the diaper bag.

Inside the bag. This was my first time making elastic pockets and zippered pockets

Filled with gifts
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My first sewing projects on: September 12, 2008 10:35:55 AM
So this is my first time posting on this board, I have made purses before but those were made of either pop tabs, or hubcaps and license plates. Since i am starting college soon i needed a messenger bag, and i do have one that works great and i love it but it is to small to carry my laptop so i made these two. i made alot of mistakes when making these but i still love them both.

this one is about 16" x 12" x 5"

This one is a small one about 12" x 10" x 3"

And here is the messenger bag i have been using for about a year but is too small  Sad (i did not make this one)

8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Clay, Paint, feathers, and stones OH MY on: August 01, 2008 12:52:11 AM
My dad bought these molds for these figures about 11 years ago when i was 7. and when we moved a month later we lost them in all the boxes of craft stuff we have. so i was raiding our garage a few weeks ago and i found them YEY!. So i just used the molds with white polymer clay, and then painted them and added feathers and stones and this is what i ended up with. kinda weird but i like them.

on the wall with some of the wooden figures my dad has collected. he has a few hundred lol
