11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Embroidered blouse on: June 08, 2010 12:56:00 AM

I made this blouse some time ago, and now it is a little too tight for me, but I still like the way that embroidery turned out. It took pretty much time to make it, but the pattern (it's my own) kind of embellishes this blouse, making it look special. Now I think maybe I should have used either red or burgundi cord for the ornament; maybe black is too contrasting... What do you think?

Thankx for looking!

I'd like to know your opinion on these. I was just experimenting and I thought it would be interesting to insert something right into the petals instead of making them just layered. I wonder if anyone tried to do it before... Any thoughts are welcomed!

Thank you for looking!

13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recycled CDs grow with flowers! on: November 23, 2009 08:26:35 AM
Hi guys!

Don't know whether this is the right place for this, anyway, just wanted to share may idea of giving a new life to the old CDs. I make fabric roses or other flowers and glue them to the discs. I guess such trinkets can make good table decoration or Christmas tree decoration. I personally use them to embellish the tops of the disc holders on the table.

Thank you for looking!

Hello craftsters!

I love flowers everywhere! I especially enjoy wearing them in my hair, that is why I've already made lots of them in various colors and shapes. The flowers are made of fabric and attached to the bobby pins or ponytail holders.

Please, have a look at some of them:

Thank you for looking!
15  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Recycled CDs for Christmas Tree on: November 16, 2009 10:14:51 AM
Hi there!

Christmas is coming and I must have been overwhelmed with this, so I've been searching for the interesting ideas of decorating the Christmas tree. Lots of CDs can't be stored in the drower for years! I decided to give them a new life. Here what I've created in the long run:

These flowers are handmade of the regular fabric and I just glue them to the disc. My kids love such decoration!

The tute for making the flowers are at my blog


Thanks for looking and reading!!!

Hello Craftsters!

Recently I've decided to try myself at making bobby pins with fabric flowers. I also plan to make something alike for ponytails holders.  What do you think of these?

Thanks for looking!
17  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Lots of handmade brooches on: July 07, 2009 12:46:12 PM
Hi there! 

I've been recently making a lot of stuff - mainly clothing and many brooches, since I like them very much and actually wear more often than other jewelry. Here are some of them. Take a look and tell me what you think of them. Thank you!

Thanks for looking!
18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / "I Love Purple" Skirt (my own design) on: July 04, 2009 01:14:50 PM
Hello, guys!

It's been some time since I posted here (it's a busy summer!), so I missed you!

But I have much stuff to share with you. This time it's a skirt I've made of two types of fabric: colorful soft and thin one and a little bit rougher whole-colored fabric. I especially loved the lace I used on the edging of the purple material. Oh, one more thing: both kinds of fabric are sewn to the waistband only are are not sewn to each other, so, some tricky wind may partially uncover the leg, which I guess would look so sexy!

So here are the pics. Hope you'll like them. Thanx for looking!

19  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Are floral necklaces in favor? on: May 31, 2009 01:47:55 PM
Hi there!

I usually make chokers in Gothic/Victorian style, but this time I decided to make something different. Here is a necklace in which I combined beads with fabric flowers that I love so much. It was meant to be romantic and sweet. Do you think I succeeded?

Here is Gothic one for the comparison:

Thank you for looking!
20  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Wedding fabric flower brooches/corsages on: May 28, 2009 08:31:46 AM
Hi there!

Here is what my addiction to fabric flower brooches has led me to:

I've made these brooches because I saw the stuff in the wedding shops, and I actually did not like what they had in the stock (I live in Ukraine). Well, the brooches they offer are not that bad, but they seem typical. I wanted to make something special, as wedding, as I believe, is the most special thing in our life. So here what I've come with.


By the way, making them I use the same technique of soaking fabric in gelatine I described in one of my previous posts.

Hope you'll like them!
