361  Re: Looking for a Pattern for gloves in Discussion and Questions by qazicat on: October 15, 2005 06:39:17 AM
I've made a pair of long gloves by adapting the pattern that I found on this site

I just extended the pattern before cutting my fabric it is also important that you use a knit fabric for this pattern.

Here is a photo of the finished product.

I received my package from Lv2ScrpBk today.   Christmas Tree Ornaments   Yay  can't wait for Christmas so I can put the Christmas tree up.  Maybe I should put it up extra early this year.  My husband usually complains if I put the Christmas tree up before December.

Thank you, Thank you LvScrpBk

363  Necklace storage in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by qazicat on: October 08, 2005 01:48:36 PM
Something I whipped up to hold all my various necklaces and the odd bracelet too.

I made it from a cheap  multi photo frame that I bought from one of those cheap warehouse places.  I removed the glass, covered the timber backing with batting then with velvet, put the timber back into the frame.

I used corsage pins to hang my jewelry on.

Comments always appreciated.

365  I can't stop making these. (updated 8 January 2006 new photos on page 2) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by qazicat on: October 06, 2005 04:10:25 AM
I made this for a swap.  Posting this now because I know that she has now received it.  My swap partner wanted a roll up knitting needle holder so I made her this one.

But then I decided to make one for my mother.

Then I decided to make one for my jewelry making tools, plyers and such.

Then I just had to make one to hold my doll making tools.

I made all of these in one weekend.

As always comments appreciated.

366  Asian Attic Window, (my first quilt) in Quilting: Completed Projects by qazicat on: October 02, 2005 05:50:51 PM
I'm  just about to start my second ever quilt, so I thought I would show you my first quilt.  I have been sewing for a long time and have also been buying fat quarters to use in my various crafting projects but I never thought that I would get into quilting until I saw an attic window quilt in a magazine.  The block is so easy to do I thought I would give it a go and use some of my stash of fat quarters.  I used 6 fat quarters to make the top.

367  Japanese-y storage box (WITH MINI TUTORIAL) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by qazicat on: October 02, 2005 02:59:01 AM
After attending a recent craft fair and buying more card stock for my card making,  I realised that I really needed something to hold all of it in.  Hence the box below.

1.  Take corrugated cardboard box and cut down to size, with box knife. Inside dimensions of the box are bigger than required. Tape box sides together with masking tape.

2.  With cardboard offcuts, tape pieces of cardboard to the sides and base of your new box.  Each side has two layers of cardboard.

3.  Make sure all raw edges of cardboard are covered with a layer of masking tape.

4.  Paper mache the entire box, including the inside with tissue paper and PVA Glue diluted 1:1 with water.  You need several layers to make sure the cardboard corrugations and masking tape are well consealled. Modge Podge can also be used.

5.  Once glue is dried, paint with black acrylic paint.

6.  Glue Japanese yuzen paper to front side.

7.  Vanish inside and outside  with at least  10 coats of PVA Glue /Water diluted 2: 1, allowing each coat to dry.  Modge Podge can also be used.

8.  Embellish with Asian Coin and small tassel (purely decorational),  Coin is attached with hot glue.

368  Re: Show me your craft "room"!! in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by qazicat on: September 23, 2005 04:30:31 AM
Been watching this thread for a while.  I finally got around to taking some photos of my sewing room which is many used for sewing but I do store all my crafty supplies in there.  I do my other crafts in the lounge while I am watching TV or on the dining room table.

From outside the door.

Just inside the door.

Left to Right - you can see the edge of my fold down cutting table, my sewing table with my sewing machine and overlocker/serger,  my CD player sitting on top of a plastic draw unit with casters containing craft tools and supplies, a cork pin board with completed projects and inspirational pictures.

From in front of the window looking at the opposite corner

My peg board which has completed items for sale (I'm getting ready for a an upcoming craft show/fair) eventually the peg board will be mounted on the wall but currently it sits on top of my cutting table.  I have to move it if I want to cut fabric.

From my sewing machine table looking at the wardrobe.

The boxes are copy paper boxes that I got from work.  Each one is labelled with marker on what the contents are, which is either a particular craft supply or fabric type.  More supplies hang in the wardrobe, plus clothes that need mending or are going to be reconstructed.  A roll of brown paper that I use for pattern drafting, and a big bag of polyester filling.

From my peg board looking at the selves which are just inside the door.

In the corner are bolts of upholstery and dress fabrics
Top self:  Completed dolls that I have made
Next Shelf left to right:  container with paint brushes,  small draw unit with jewelry findings and the like, a half finished doll sitting on the chair, containers with half done beading projects, my fat quarter bags
Next shelf left to right:  all my various types of glue, 2 draw units with my rubber stamping supplies, one draw unit filled with beads.
Last shelf in photo left to right: cardstock and small guillotine, plastic bags with dress fabrics, craft magazines and books
What you can't see is the floor which has more boxes of fabrics and another for my various types of paints.

369  Bohemian Turquoisite (now its a whole matching set) in Beads: Completed Projects by qazicat on: September 21, 2005 01:08:42 AM
I have had a turquoisite donut bead for ages that I use to wear on thin black leather thong.  But I haven't worn it for over 3 years.  I wanted to do something interesting with this bead so that I would want to start wearing it again.   It has taken a long time but I have come up with this to match the spring (southern hemisphere) fashion colours of brown and turquoise.

Edit: Bracelet is on page two

370  What happens when you are bored and have just finished watching POTC in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by qazicat on: September 21, 2005 12:49:22 AM
I made this a couple months ago and have only just got around to taking a photo of it.

It was a Sunday afternoon, I was bored and had just finished watching Pirates of the Caribbean DVD and I found some gold sculpey left over from another project.  I decided that I wanted my own pirate medallion and this is what I came up with.  It has been antiqued with some black acrylic paint and gold metallic paint has been applied thinly to give it that precious metal look.
