1  ring bearer pillows! in Weddings and Bridal Showers by mollyxmayhem on: May 23, 2010 03:29:19 PM
this is from a while back, but i'm SUPER proud of how they turned out.
i managed to erase most pics of the pillows, but i just found two of them.
my first sewing job that was more than 20 minutes long.

they had a red wings theme for their wedding.
and two ring bearers!

up close!

2  my try at kanzashis! [[5 imgs]] in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by mollyxmayhem on: May 23, 2010 03:19:29 PM
so i decided to try my own hand at kanzashi flowers.
didn't quite work as amazingly as i had hoped, but wearable!

i made this one out of pinstripe suit pants.
my mom's...SHH!

out of a pillowcase my neighbor gave me!
i also made a wallet out of this.
it's gorgeous!

i made a friend her ring bearer pillows and this was leftover red fabric.

these were pajama pants from goodwill!

this one is a little big.
it's from a skort.

3  piano wallet out of duct tape! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by mollyxmayhem on: February 23, 2009 01:52:32 PM
i was doing a project for speech class, and it happened to be an informative speech on duct tape.
i thought about what to do, and thought, "a simple old duct tape wallet will do, but i won't use it!"
then i thought.
"i should do a music themed one!"

then it hit me...

i'm so proud of it, it's my first try, too!

front, with piano!

it's hot pink, the music.

the inside is hot pink, and the piano part [[i'm just so proud of it!]]

comments, criticism?
i know it's only one pocket, but it's simple enough that i'll use it.
thanks for looking!

It looks pretty big, what size did you make it?? really cute

it turned out 4 3/4 inches wide, and 3 3/4 inches tall.

it started about 10 1/2 inches tall by 5 1/2 inches wide.
i think.

it's big, but not HUGE.
just a little bigger than a card.
my phone, a 1st generation verizon lg chocolate, JUST barely doesn't fit in it.

this is a pic of it with a 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 picture on it.
[[and i do apologize. i'm not good with a camera. Huh i look like that when it comes to taking picture with it.]]

I like! I see Christmas presents now! LOL!

haha, i'm moving to a new school.
i start monday.
finding friends and their likes before i make them sounds good.
but yes, presents this year will probably be homemade.

5  the best thing i've sewn. ever. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by mollyxmayhem on: August 23, 2008 03:29:56 PM
...which isn't hard, considering i've sewn about 6 things.
but still.

i used this tute, https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=187229.10, a pillow case my neighbor gave me, [[it's brown with white polka dots, not black.]], and some black lining.

it's an AMAZING tute, if you want a cute wallet, use that one.
it's simple, and CUTE.

pics time!

the whole thing.
it's all the same fabric, but it's SEW [[pun intended]] me.

this shows it's brown, because of the simple black lining.

so much.

thanks for looking!!!

it's absolutely GORGEOUS.
it's the first thing i said when i saw it.
"mom, it's gorgeous."
she looked at it and nodded.
"it is."

more picture time!

i'm home from square dancing where they told me in german i HAD to dance.

and heads up, the first three pictures are just as much me as these next ones are.
i dyed my hair in between.

please excuse the dorky faces, i had much fun.

"good job!!!"

"i hide from you."

"shh, don't tell!"



"you looks bored waiting for caleb, spongebob, so let's play video games!"

my nephew as he walked in, not knowing what's coming.
he's one-and-a-half.

notice spongebob in the background...
...because he apparently hadn't yet.

mamma [[my mother]] "caleb, look!"
caleb "*slow smile* BOBOB!" [[spongebob!]]


"GOT HIM!!!"

"caleb, show momma what you have!"

"are you sharing pop with spongebob?"

"give spongebob hug, caleb!"

"...and kiss!"

...this wasn't a good shot of spongebob, but i thought my nephew looked adorable!

I hope you like mine just as much!!!

you were an amazing swapper.
thank you SO SO SO SO SO much.

The UPS man rang the doorbell and I was like, "Hey mom. Dad's got a package."
She looked at me like I was crazy and said, "I think that's yours..."

I immediately jumped up and got it!
I was so excited.


me opening the box.

Me AND spongebob, what I asked for!

spongebob sitting.

i have WAAAAY more pics, i will post later, though.
I have to get going somewhere.

and future pictures will prove I had fun with him until my nephew got here, then he stole all the fun.

but, my nephew turned around and saw it, and then smiled, then said, "spongebob!"

post more later!!!

8  youth group shirt to WHAT? [[large images]] in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by mollyxmayhem on: August 11, 2008 11:13:13 AM
my youth group is richer than all get out.
that's why the popular rich kids go to it.
but i go too, me and my poor self.

so they give out shirts at like, everything.

i took last year's shirt, a black one with ephesians 6:11 on it.
and cut it up.
and made a purse with it and some leftover straps and denim.
and then added I AM LOVED pins from helzberg's.

it took me two and a half hours, and it's pretty decent for my almost non-existent sewing skills.
it's the second thing i've sewn.
i'm super proud of it.

i went to the VBS at that church, and 3 people asked me to make them one out of jeans and a shirt if they paid me.

so, here goes.
comments and constructive criticism welcome.
*crosses fingers*


says - SATAN PROOF YOURSELF "Put on all of God's armor so that YOU will be able to stand firm against all strategies and trick of the Devil." Ephesians 6:11


strap modified with I AM LOVED pins:

10  my first [[and worst]] attempt at sewing something on my own... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by mollyxmayhem on: July 29, 2008 02:56:42 PM
a messenger bag!
this is my first time making something with a sewing machine on my own.
so it's totally not even close to perfect.
it's kind of sloppy, but i'm super proud of it!

i used this tutorial kind of.

it's polka dot corduroy and denim with an orange undertone!
and it's a belt for the strap.


[[not so bad for my first zipper]]

front minus flap.

action shot!
[[i'm 5'7"]]

thanks for looking!!!
