1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Vintage pepsi handbag on: November 22, 2008 12:58:20 PM
I had this vintage-like pepsi fabric and yellow plastic handles laying around for almost a year, but some days ago I finally got my hands on to make the handbag I had been thinking of:

This was made completely from scratch and hand-sewn, and I think it turned out quite good for a first time!
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Felt flower hair pin on: November 17, 2008 02:58:35 PM
Hi Smiley
I live in Chile and as summer is finally here, wearing plastic flower hair accesories is getting very trendy. And as I wanted to stay trendy in my own crafty style, I made some felt ones!

Here's the one I first came up with:

And an action shot! (love them!)

And since it was so fun and easy to make them, and I'm such a nice big sister, I also made a couple for my sisters:

And one of my sisters wearing hers:

Hope you like! Smiley
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Another star !! on: December 12, 2004 06:57:01 PM
Okay. You might remember a felt star I posted a while ago. I wanted to make one for my boyfriend, but I thought he'd think they were too silly/girly so I didn't. The thing is, he came over and he LOVED the star and asked me to make him one! So here's the one I made for him:
He told me to put "Sum 41" in the back, because they're his fave band (and probably will always be). It wasn't that hard really, besides it was easier (and shorter) than writting John Mayer, so I'm glad he didn't tell me to put that.... he loves John Mayer more than he loves me, I swear! Hehe <3
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Question for sewing!!!! on: December 02, 2004 07:41:43 AM
Okay, it's summer where I live. And my problem is that, since last summer, I've lost a lottttt of weight (which is awesome), but now all my cute shirts look way too big on me!!! So I NEED so make them smaller.
The thing is, I don't have a sewing machine. I do sew little things by hand, like pencil cases and stuff like that, but I'm kind of scared to hand-sew a shirt.
Any suggestions? Should I wait til I get the chance to do it with a sewing machine?

Thanks in advance!!! xoxoxo
5  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Question about Lip Balm... !!! on: December 02, 2004 07:00:51 AM
Okay, so I saw this topic https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=14717.0 and I'm really excited about making my own lipbalm, but I have a little problem. I don't live in the US, actually I live in Southamerica, so I have NO IDEA what Crisco is..... if you could tell me what it is for or what it is like I'd be really glad, because that way I'd know what I should use!!!!
thanks a lot, in advance ! <3
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / "Felt" Star on: December 01, 2004 07:52:17 PM
Hey everyone!!
This is my 1st post and my 1st project, so I' very excited! Well, I've made easy stuff before, like pencil cases out of old t-shirts and stuff..... but i reallyyyyy wanted to make one of those super cute felt monsters. First, I wanted to try something like the ones seen here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=17253.0 but I wanted more detail and stuff.
As it was my 1st project of this kind EVER, I decided to try something easier first. I was so impacient to make something that I ddin't even get real felt, I used a bag thing I had which was made of felt-like material, but it was lighter. First, I wanted to make a smiley. But I thought it was gonna be TOO easy, so I decided to make a star. I ddin't want to, because here where I live it's crowded of stupid kids who think wearing pins with stars with cute faces is emo, and that pisses me off a LOT, but I did it anyway. And I must admit, I LOVE the way it turned out!!! I look at it and I can't believe I made it myself! Maybe its not that great, but it's the firts thing I've made so I'm super excited.

Now, the pictures!!! Excuse my crappy webcam pics, but my digi cam is broken:

And as my name is Fran, I sewed a bead with an F on the star; it's an idea I got form the link I posted above:

and yeah, now the star's name is Fran too  Smiley

Well aaah I'm still all excited about it, so mind if I write a short description of the steps I took?

First, before drawing the shape on the material, I did it on a piece of paper, and I'm glad I came up with that idea because the first star shapes turned out very deformed, hehe. As the material was thin, its easy to see through it, so I just put it over the star I drew and copied it. Then I made the face and sewed the bead, and then started to sew both pieces (front and back) together. Oh yeah, everything was HAND SEWN because I don't have a sewing mahcine, hehe.
Anyway, I stuffed it with this weird thing my mom once bought to clean something...... I have no idea of it's name in english (I speak spanish), but it looks like a soft mix of cotton and small pieces of white fabric. I like it because now the star is all fluffy Cheesy I love itttttt !!!!! I want to take it everywhere with me haha, but I was also thinking about giving it to my boyfriend -if he likes it- or something....

Yeah well, sorry for the huge stupid message, but I seriously am excited about how cute my first project turned out; and I'm sure I'm not the only one who got all excited after seeing my 1st project finished...... Can't wait to start making monsters!!!!
