1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Leather wrap bracelets on: April 14, 2011 07:01:44 AM
I have lusted over this design for far too long and finally decided to make a couple of them! The green one is made with jade beads, the black and white is made with shell beads. I used leather cords and waxed linen to tie it all together!

Thanks for looking!

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Simple and classy guest room w/pics!! on: June 25, 2010 05:55:17 PM
We moved into our house almost a year ago (yaay!!) and the smallest bedroom has been completely neglected since the moment we moved in! It was painted a purplish gray, and was hard to look at for prolonged periods of time. This summer we're having a few out of town guests pop in here and there, so my hubby and I (Let's admit it, it was mostly me  Roll Eyes) turned it into a guest room, without repainting. So I worked with the gray, and this is what I came up with!

These are the pictures I framed. I used my own photography, and spray painted some mix/match thrift store frames to match!

So lets see:

Curtain rods and fabric for curtains: $70
Bedding: $42
Photos: $20
Stand&Chair: Free! (the chair we already had, and the shelf stand was spray painted to match and re-purposed)
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Mother's Day earrings! on: May 07, 2010 06:49:28 PM
I made these for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day. I don't wear earrings, so these are the first pairs I've ever made (C&C are appreciated!  Wink)

I think the purple ones are my favorite! I made two pairs of the blue-themed ones, because I feel like the big blue beads MAY be too big for earrings.  Huh
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / California Beach-Wedding Dress on: May 05, 2010 07:45:15 AM
My hubby and I got married in April in Half Moon Bay, California (south of San Francicsco). I've been sewing for about two years and everyone expected that I'd make my own dress. So I did, even though it was to be a very small ceremony. We are from NY and chose to fly out with just our two brothers (One from DC, one from NM) to California. It was just the four of us, the officiant, and the photographers. The beach and weather were both absolutely beautiful! So, on with the pictures!

Thanks for looking!
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / MP3 player case! on: April 13, 2010 08:03:17 AM
My fiance and I are flying out to California (from NY) very soon for our wedding. Last time we flew I loaded up my Blackberry full of music with the hope that a kind flight attendant would let me listen to it. I did not find that kind flight attendant. So this time Im prepared with my actual, handy-dandy MP3 player! Trouble is, I dont want my headphones getting wrapped up in a jumbo knot at the bottom of my carry-on bag. So I whipped this up tonight! Aside from applying the Velcro a tad crooked,  it came out surprisingly well!

I used some leftover fabric from a wallet I made my little sister, and lined it with some old scraps of fleece that matched!

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Plain corset for wedding on: March 15, 2010 06:05:21 PM
I made this simple beauty over the weekend. It's to go UNDER my wedding dress. It's an underbust, since the wedding dress is a halter top.

I did not use a pattern, I just drafted it myself on some old newspaper, added a seam allowance, and went to town.  Cheesy I'm only wearing it once so I used some twill-covered plastic boning. It's a thick exterior fabric, plus cotton twill inside.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Anyone with County Fair experience? on: March 08, 2010 10:00:41 AM
I'm thinking about entering one or two sewing projects in the Home Arts competition at our county fair in NY. I've never done this before, so I was wondering if any of your craftster out there have entered anything like this into fair competitions. What should I expect? How does set up and exhibitions work? Thanks everyone!  Grin
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Does anyone have a leather guitar strap? on: December 15, 2009 04:50:45 AM
I'm making a leather guitar strap for my brother for Christmas, but I'm having issues with the measurements. I understand the construction of these straps is two-part. One part is the thinner adjustable strap, the other is the wider shoulder strap, either of which can be entirely separated from the other. If anyone out there has a leather guitar strap like this, would you be so kind as to measure the two separate pieces and let me know how long each one is? Thanks so much!

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Cat-proof toilet paper! ....FINALLY! on: December 01, 2009 07:49:26 PM
Ever since our cats were kittens, one of them, Pogo, has been obsessed with shredding toilet paper. You can imagine what a frustration this is. So tonight I had this brilliant idea to make a cat-proof toilet paper cover. I can't tell you how relieved I am!

Here's Pogo caught in the act when he was still a kitten

And still doing it now that he's two years old....sigh.

And now, never again! It's a double-sided strip of canvas fabric and fleece interfacing about 4 1/4" wide and long enough to wrap around a full roll.

I made it completely adjustable to protect the roll down to the last square, so the elastic and three button positions will wrap around even a mostly empty roll. I did this on a whim, so I didn't match the elastic very well......

Here it is all laid out flat

Think of the trees I'll be saving from Pogo! Thanks for checking it out!  Cheesy
