11  Phoenix wings in Costumes: Completed Projects by Bee_U_Tiffle on: January 23, 2005 01:27:02 AM
I made these a while ago.  They are kids dress-up wings I made one day out of scraps.  I was thinking "bird' but they kind of evolved into flame coloured fluttery creature wings.

The triangle satin feathers look pretty cool when the kids run around as they flutter and move as they move their arms.  There is two loops of elastic around the shoulders, then two wrist loops to hold them on.  I also made butterfly, ladybird and erm.... purple lizard wings the same day.  Most of them ended up at pre-school in the dress-up box.

12  Purple glittery revamp for $2 school desk! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Bee_U_Tiffle on: January 19, 2005 01:25:35 AM
I finished this desk set today for my 5 yr old.  

It was supposed to be for Xmas but the weather wasn't great for painting.  It will be good to store all her craft bits and pens etc that usually clutter up the kitchen.
The desk is an old school one and was $2. They gave me a matching chair for free  Grin  I needed to sand out all the scratches and graffitti. The legs were an icky chipped institutional grey originally.  I already had old test pots with paint and after much searching I found the perfect girly paper for decoupage at the supermarket (hearts, flowers, butterflies, ladybugs.....).  The whole lot has three layers of glitter polyurethane (Fairy Dust).  It does not show up in the photos at all but there is a beautiful subtle shimmer over every surface.
The two shades of purple don't really show up in the pics - there is really much more contrast.


I've blurred out her name on the chair back.  I used a Celtic type font as a stencil and highlighted the name with silver.  The crown is a stencil I made from Word clipart.  The finishing touch will be some jewels glued on the crown.  I have some tiny ones but now think we need to get some much bigger ones!

Little Bee the new owner is very happy.  She loves purple, and now has somewhere to deal with all her imporant correspondence  Grin

Hi  Smiley, this is my first post AND my first Jordy bag completed!   It was fun to make.  I used a thrifted baby tee shirt (with Cat in the Hat design) and denim.  I tried sewing red piping for the first time on the bag handle and top of the bag.  I am really happy with the final look especially the piping.  I used iron on interfacing to stabilise the t-shirt fabric.

This is the T-shirt before:

and after:

I used magnetic closures for the first time - so easy!

I am now planning my next bag.  I want to try a zip closure and interior zipped pocket next time.   This one is a library book bag for a 5 year old.  She loves it.
