1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Ninety nine beers on necklace. on: August 26, 2011 01:56:55 PM
I have been making a lot of beerrings (earrings), out of beer cans.
This is my first beer necklace. Much more to come ...

I've really been needing more plants in my house, so here is my first new planter ...

Before: Dollar General swan planter and hot pink spray paint ...


After: Swan flamingo planter, a very rare creature, the swamingo.

The swamingo planter.

Succulents in my swamingo.

Well that's my swamingo, one could say I am tickled pink about it.

You still say earrings?
Well they are beerrings.
And here is my latest pair.

I have a massive collection of cans sitting around,
not all from my drinking, hahaha, my friends help,
soon I will have beerrings of ALL kinds on my Etsy.

These are cute..even though I only drink liquor.
Are they sharp or did you sand or coat them with something?

I did not sand or coat them with anything. I don't think they are very sharp, but I am sure you could cut yourself with it, like a paper cut or something ... overall though, not sharp, and when they are worn they make amazing sounds as they dangle around. Since you only drink liquor ... maybe you drink some soda from time to time? I made some more from soda cans today.

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Coat rack revamp. on: May 01, 2011 03:10:31 PM

My boyfriends father gave me this rather ugly coat rack,
knowing I'd paint it or something,
and of course that's what I did.
It's pretty simple but
I am pretty happy with the way it turn out.

Very cool, nice work. The buttons are a perfect match. Is the laminated fabric difficult to sew? I think I've talked my mom into making my son an art apron with some.

The problem I had was that it did not want to feed through the machine properly. Sewing seams (with right sides together) wasn't much of a problem because the wrong side of the laminated fabric is just a basic cotton weave. However topstitching was basically impossible, when the right side of the fabric was (not) being pulled through the feed dogs properly (and also sticking to the presser foot and bunching-basically not feeding through at all). My solution was to 'borrow' tear-a-way stabilizer scraps that we throw away at work (the remnants of embroidering lab coats) and sandwich the garment between them. It fed nicely, but I had to be super careful when tearing the stabilizer away, because it tended to lift some of the stitches (causing loops) even when I tightened the tension and the bobbin and shortened the stitch length.

This could be a problem with my machine, but it generally does pretty well with a variety of fabrics, so can't say for sure. [/quote]

First off, I love the raincoat and how everything matches, great job. When I read about your troubles it reminded me of something ... I have had issues slightly like that when sewing with vinyl. Recently I came across something online, that could be a solution for the both of us, I have no tried it yet. But here is a link that might be useful ... http://paradisodesigns.blogspot.com/2011/01/method-monday-tutorial-on-pleathervinyl.html

This is great, all the way to the core, maybe a lil' hardcore.  ; )
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Reflect recycle. Abstract eco necklace. Broken light. on: March 05, 2011 01:40:42 PM
I found this broken piece of tail/blinker light outside of the house
after there had been a car accident one day.
I saved it for a very long time and finally
ended up using it for this necklace ...

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Love gone postal. Security envelope style. on: February 07, 2011 09:09:10 PM
I've been covering everything I can find with security envelopes these days.
These are wood beads.
Decoupaged with itty bitty strips of security envelopes.
Then painted.
And varnished.
