21  Ruffle Jammies!!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by envirocraft on: May 10, 2010 03:36:08 PM
Alright, after writing "jammies" I thought about Raj from one episode of Big Bang Theory where he says something about his "jammy" and Leonard is like "What??"


I had a fairly successful day of sewing today! Yay! (sometimes days of sew = days of frustration!)

I made cute pajamas! See, look:

They're actually made out of an old jersey bed sheet... so it's semi reconstructed! Smiley

Okay, so when I actually wear it, it kinda looks like a bubble gum bathing suit. Whoops. Smiley

The top is super cute, and maybe I'll wear it as an actual tank under a cardi or something...

I just love the cuteness factor of the bottoms... however they don't actually fit that well (so I kinda gave up on them. I didn't bother finishing the leg-holes...)

I love how cute the ruffles are. Even if I never wear them, I'll enjoy how cute they look in the drawer!


Thanks for looking!

22  Tacky old frame to cute dry erase board in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by envirocraft on: May 09, 2010 01:05:00 PM
I had an ugly old 8x10 picture frame which I didn't know what to do with.  I'm generally of the opinion that an 8x10 picture is larger than most people want to be in reproduced form. Tongue

I turned it into a cute dry erase board!

Here's the before of the frame:

A close up so you can really understand the tackiness:

And here's a close up of the flower doo-dad

I made the flower using my Fantastic Flowers thingy from when I was little.  If you don't know what Fantastic Flowers is, or if you remember it fondly and want to read more about it, check it out on my blog (in my signature).

Thanks for looking! I *heart* comments!

23  Scrapbooking Catch UP (Image HUGE!) in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by envirocraft on: May 07, 2010 10:08:34 AM
So, now that I'm all done school I've had time to catch up on scrapbooking! I'm proud to say I have finished the stuff from the last 2+ years and finally have the pages in albums!!

Here's some of the stuff I finished.  Additionally, everything I used came out of my stash! I didn't buy anything new... although now I'm out of glue dots and tape runner stuff. lol

And a couple pictures of the huge pile of pages I had to put into albums:

Some of those are other pages I did recently, I just didn't take pictures of all of them!!

Thanks for looking! C&C welcome!

26  Summery Spring Top Turned Elegant in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by envirocraft on: May 02, 2010 02:33:57 PM
I found this top over at Sew Mama Sew: http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/?p=791

However it calls for making out of a light quilting cotton... I just received 3 boxes of shiny dressy material, so I thought I'd try it with that.

Originally I thought I'd have to put an invisible zipper in the side because I didn't think my material would have much stretch, but it did (luckily!) and I bought invisible zippers and an invisible zipper foot for nothing.  I'm sure I'll eventually find a use for them!

Here's the shirt I made:

I added the belt because otherwise it looked like I was preggers!

Additionally, I made this cuff bracelet


It was inspired by this one: http://www.rufflesandstuff.com/2010/04/rose-cuff-bracelet.html

I plan to get some more (better) pictures up on my blog soon!

27  A few more layouts in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by envirocraft on: April 27, 2010 11:38:48 AM
I did these a while ago as part of my 50 projects in 2010 but never posted them!

This one is my boyfriend and me, and my best friend and her husband from new years.  The letters are chip board that I cut out!

This one is from my summer job last year working at a kids science camp.  We were doing science shows for the children's festival

This is from one of the week long camps I did.  The camp tries hard to protect the identity of the kids (understandable) so that's why there's happy little faces on the kids. 

This was from my trip to see my sister, we went to the Cannery in Vancouver, it's actually out on the port, but I think they're moving it for security reasons

This is my sister at Burnaby village museum!  lol She'd hate me if she saw this!

Hope you like these! I'm on another scrapin' kick, so hopefully more pics soon!

28  MONKEY STRAWS!!! in Completed Projects by envirocraft on: April 26, 2010 05:29:56 PM

Okay, now for the explaination of monkey straws. At the beginning of February my boyfriend and I went to his coworker's wedding. She is also one of those "we hang out with outside of work friends." Aka, we like her Smiley

On her wedding registry she wanted the silver monkey straw from Tiffany's http://www.tiffany.com/Shopping/item.aspx?sku=14560963&search_params=t+straw-s+0-p+1-l+-h+-c+-r+-x

A little ridiculous, I know, but she actually wanted it.

Not that surprisingly, she didn't get it. Sad

It's her birthday this weekend so my boyfriend and I created these so that she can now go on with her life because she has not just one, but 4 monkey straws!!

We fully expect her to pull them out when we come to visit Tongue

We had a heck of a time finding a barrel of monkeys AND curly straws! FYI: found the monkeys at Toys R Us and the straws came from Walmart (I try not to buy things from there, but we scoured the city!)

Here's the "tutorial" if you can call it that:

Use hot (but not too hot) glue gun to glue monkeys to straws. And you're done! lol

She loved them and immediately knew that they were MONKEY STRAWS!

p.s. There are a few more pics on my blog if you're interested!

I finally got around to making electrical jewelry!  Yay!  I finished 2 pairs of earrings.  Here's the link:


Additionally, I picked up fabric from my friends mom!! 3 boxes and 1 box of patterns! Heaven!  My  mom gave me that "you're bringing more stuff home?  And where do you plan to keep it" look that I'm sure other people also get, maybe from husbands/boyfriends, etc.  My boyfriend is happy about it, i think it might be different if it were at his house! Lol

(me and my new boxes!!)

30  Resistor Earrings! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by envirocraft on: April 20, 2010 01:47:42 PM
I finally got around to making jewelry from electrical parts! (I just finished my electrical engineering degree!)

First pair:  I found the metal part at Michael's on sale for $2.99!!! and then I painted resistors with gold paint, just so that they match better, but you can still see some of the stripes of the resistors!  LOVE THEM!


Here's the before of the resistors:

The painted resistors hanging on a clothes hanger!

Other pair:


Thanks for looking! C & C welcome!
