11  Collaged cards with a butterfly theme in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by chirel on: February 01, 2011 06:25:50 AM
I haven't posted anything in a while, so now that I made and photographed something I decided to share.

Here are some of the cards I made in this series.


This one is too difficult to translate...

"Loved one"

"The sun"

"A shy dream"

13  Decoupaged clock with underwater scenery in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by chirel on: December 27, 2004 11:47:45 PM

I made this clock for my mother for Christmas as she loves fishing. I have to give gredit to my husband who helped me by painting the papers I used (the fish is from some prochure) as I had so many things I had to finish in time.

I  like the way it came out even though I would have preferred to make more things myself. I really ran out of time and had to by a set of numbers to use for the clock. I guess the most important thing is that my mother loved the idea  Cheesy.

Yay, I finally got the pictures uploaded (well my husband did). So here is the scarf. There is a similar set of dragonflies at the other end of the scarf, but they are not visible now.

And here is a close up of one of the dragonflies. So I stencilled the pattern and then followed the outlines with something that might be a backstich (if there's such a stich Wink).

Off to plan the knitting project...

15  Re: Craftalong Un-swap Part 1a: Sewing a purse in The Swap Gallery by chirel on: December 06, 2004 12:10:42 AM

My purse. It's been finished and in use for two weeks now. I even got a choclate stain on it already  Sad. It's comfortable and roomy. The strap is wide enough to make it light to carry even when I have an A4-folder in it or books.

I wasn't fully consentrating while making it so there are some mistakes and stuff, but I'm happy with the result anyway  Cheesy.

It only took me four years to make this bag (from the original idea)... Grin

16  Decoupaged boxes in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by chirel on: November 12, 2004 09:33:34 AM
I have two boxes (orange and green) I use to store deco booklets. The boxes were quite wobbly and after a year or so they started to look like they'd fall apart one day.  Then I have one box (violet) for miscellanious deco material that doesn't fit anywhere else. This box is an old box for chocolate. I wanted to make the two wobbly ones sturdier and to make all the boxes better looking so I decided to finally give decoupage a try.

I used bits and pieces I'd stored from deco making and other projects. Then I blotted some ink over the design.

17  Nursing shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by chirel on: November 12, 2004 09:25:44 AM
I made this shirt for my sister. I had the idea from magazine, but the pattern was of wrong size and actually of wrong shape too. So I basically made the pattern myself. The shirt is a bit too big for me, but you get the idea.

I'm quite happy with the way it came out, even though there are some details I'd do differently the next time (like the collar).

The front of the shirt is made of two layers of fabric. The top layer covers the slits for breasts. Here you can see how the slits work. (And that is a shirt showing underneath, not my bra  Grin)

Here are the fabrics I'm using. The top one I wove myself some years ago. (The second thing I've ever woven.)Even then I thought I'd use it to make a purse one day. Then there's the lining and the background is actually the corduroy fabric I'm using for the sides and strap.

Yesterday I cut my fabrics and on monday I'll try to sew the purse. I know I said I'd make many pockets and departements, but as I started thinking about it, I don't need them anymore. So there'll be only one pocket inside the purse. Makes my life a lot easier  Grin.
