53  Grace Kelly Cuff made from Curtain Panel Fabric in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by nmcakemom07 on: June 08, 2010 12:32:52 PM
This is a cuff bracelet that I made for my swap partner who loves all things Grace Kelly.  The background fabric is material that I cut off of a Curtain panel that was too long for my bedroom window.  It has a kind of ultrasuede feel to it and I just couldn't part with it so I found a new use for it.

The pictures were off of a domino collage panel that I purchased from magicpug.com on etsy, and printed on inkjet printable fabric.  I then sewed a zig zag stitch onto the black fabric to secure the images and stop them from fraying.  Next time I think I may apply fusible web to the back of the images so they are easier to sew.  I ran a simple beaded stitch along the edges for some bling.
I also used fabric markers to add a little bit of color.

 The clasps are magnetic since she has very small children who like to grab things.

Comments and criticisms please!

54  Alfred Hitchcock Do Not Disturb Sign in Beads: Completed Projects by nmcakemom07 on: June 07, 2010 03:56:34 PM
This was done for the Vintage Swap: Movie Edition for my great partner gigglygirl.  She had two young children and a love for Hitchcock movies so I figured I would try something ambitious.  I used size 8 beads and did this in brick stitch.  Comments and criticisms welcome

55  M and M grandkid shirt in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by nmcakemom07 on: December 22, 2009 07:39:48 PM
My sister in law collects m & m s and has also become a grandmother to 3 boys and a girl this last year, so I decided to make her a grandma shirt for Christmas.  I used photoshop, google images and the Hanes transfers to get these results.  I hope she likes it.

56  Party Pipecleaner Poinsettias (say that 3 times fast) with Tutorial in Winter Holidays by nmcakemom07 on: December 15, 2009 03:07:47 PM

I got the idea for these from a drink I had in a bar with a palm tree skewer in it and thought "wow these would be great for my chocolate fountain at out annual cookie exchange"
So I put together about 100 of these while watching "Julie and Julia" on DVD the other evening.
This is my first tutorial so please bear with me.

Low temp glue gun and sticks
Barbecue skewers
pipe cleaners with "puffs" on them in red and white
yellow pom poms
regular green pipecleaners
scissors or wire cutters

1st cut puff pipe cleaner into sections so that you have the leaves of the poinsettia

Apply glue to blunt end (top) of skewer and place 5 "leaves" around the top.

squeeze leaves onto skewer and wrap with 1/2 inch piece of green pipe cleaner on the bottom of bloom.

Fold and bend down leaves to form flower.

Apply small dot of glue in the middle and top with yellow pom pom.

 You can use multiple tiny poms if you wish but I couldn't find any small enough to my liking so I went with these.

Place on your table or in your tree as picks and dazzle your guests like you know you can.

Thanks for looking
