21  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / a birthday present for my best friend! on: April 20, 2011 08:09:20 AM
i just wanted to share a few things i've made recently.

 My best friend in the entire world's birthday was recently and i had to make him something awesommmeeee. He likes to write, so i got him this plain black travel journal and altered it. Right now he uses a small dollar general notebook to write his random ideas in. I used his own writings and printed them on blue tissue paper and used modge podge glue/sealant.

I found a neat quote from Ray Bradbury, who my BFFL likes a lot (and i didn't know it until after the fact). "We must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy us." I used my silhouette cutting machine and made a stencil for it.


thank you for looking!

25  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Itchy tasty Drawstring bag on: March 31, 2011 12:16:00 PM
My husbands best friends 30th surprise birthday party is this weekend and i wanted to make him a little present! They frequently play D&D together and his friend is a zombie fanatic, and a self proclaimed master at the resident evil games. So i decided to make him a drawstring bag using my Silhouette cutting machine, freezer paper and fabric paint Cheesy

Here are some pics i took along the way!

I photoshopped a few images together and used my cutting machine to cut out the finished image on the freezer paper:

then put it on the fabric and slowly ironed it down, dont use too much pressure!

before the iron:

after ironing:

used matte tulip fabric paint and a sponge brush:

and dabbed to give it a textured look:

then cut it up and sewed it into a simple drawstring bag! Voila!

I'm pretty sure there is a tutorial in the tutorial section on making a simple drawstring bag if not this is a pretty easy one:

thanks for looking!

Got a few new iPad covers!

These all have pockets on the front, and are padded (using padding not quilt batting like most), and the first two have handles on them for carrying! Cheesy

IF i had an iPad-- This one would be MINE. Houndstooth is my most favorite print everrrr.

The infamous horror movie fabric!

30  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Shirred dresses! on: February 21, 2011 07:45:11 AM
I love love love these dresses! They are so simple and since my daughter less frequently grows taller, hehe, they fit for a long time and have lots room to grow since they are nice and stretchy from the shirring the top. Onto the photos---

I used light blue and white striped seersucker fabric along with contrasting yellow for the straps, and the heart pocket.

One more for now! This one was made from a shirt i picked up at the thrift store for $2.

thanks for lookin!
