11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Two cute little wallets&A makeup bag! on: June 07, 2009 08:09:06 PM
My mom's friend saw a few of the purses and wallets I've made and asked if I could make her a coin purse like my moms (same print, etc etc), but she wanted it to be closed with velcro.

Here's the wallet! (the image has the front, back, and a picture of the inside and all that jazz)

And then, my mom really liked this fabric that I had, so I decided to make her something out of it. It was only my second time doing a zipper! How'd I do? Okay? Oh, and the stitches were hand-sewn and MEANT to look crooked, I have a wallet kinda like this and she loved when I did them all crooked and thought it was really cute so I did hers that way too Smiley It was added to her list of gifts for Mothers Day.

Image has picture of the front with a cute little bow I made and of the inside!

And, a makeup bag, again, for my mama for Mothers Day. She needed a new one really bad. This was my FIRST time doing a zipper!! I almost got the whole thing stuck inside out! And, it's padded pretty thick so it holds all her makeup. And trust me, she STUFFS that baby even though she probably wears makeup two times a year Tongue


thanks for looking!!

12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / black&white checked capri pants into a cute bag! on: June 07, 2009 07:38:15 PM
So I had these black and white checkered capri pants, and I figured they would make a really cute purse. And, oh, look! They did! I love it's size, it's just big enough for all the crap I just MUST carry but don't even use half the time when I'm out, but not too big and it doesn't get really bulky when it's full of all that MUST-carry-never-use stuff!

Hooray! Okay, here's the pictures Smiley

the inside, I just lined it with a sturdy black fabric Smiley

on me. Sorry for the angle.

thanks for looking!
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Cute jean skirts, to cute jean purses! [kinda pic chubby!] on: June 07, 2009 07:30:28 PM
A jean skirt, into a cute purse!
It works just perfectly for overnight visits and such.

It's the only purse I've made out of a skirt that I haven't lined, because the denim is SO thick, and at the time I was impatient and didn't have any to match anyway so I skipped it Tongue

Skirt purse!

Detail of the button/bow. These took me forever!

wearing it Smiley Sorry for the horrible shot. It was 4am and I had to take it myself.

Anndddd, this was a skirt that was a little too short for my liking as I ended up shooting up about 5'' since the last time wore it.

I didn't take a picture of the lining >.<, but it's a cute bright orange and white checkered fabric! Oh and the handle of it is thick white ribbon!

Front [I did all the splattering myself];

Back [I promise it's not lopsided like that haha! The little orange hand prints are my baby brothers, and the white ones are mine. He loves when we finger paint, so I decided to make a purse with his precious little hands on it!];

14  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Greek pizza&Spanakopita! on: June 07, 2009 06:50:53 PM
I'm 1/2 Greek, yet I'd never made Greek food. And I knew my mom was dying to try even something a tiny bit Greek. So on Mother's Day, I decided to make it for her! And my goodness... it was heaven!


Greek pizza [Aren't the colors just gorgeous?!];


On my plate, haha!;

the end Smiley thank you for looking!
15  COOKING / Dessert / Guitar cake mama made a few years back :) on: June 07, 2009 06:22:55 PM
Oh boy, I hope I'm posting this right.. I've never posted anything on here before. I've been on craftster for years, lurking, pretty much. I never registered until a few days ago. So I'm sorry in advance if anything is posted wrong!!

So a couple years ago, on my 14th birthday, I begged my mom for a guitar cake and she wanted to do it in my favorite colors, pink and black. She went to I don't know how many grocery stores to find black icing and each told her "You'd have to wait until October and it'll be around", she wouldn't stop. She eventually found it somewhere. Sorry for the novel, here's the cake [it's a carrot cake inside, with cream cheese frosting...my favorite!];;

Another novel to explain the 2 1/2 strings before I show you the pic, ha! She told me not to touch it... but I did and I broke one of the 3 strings. She was a little bummed she couldn't make a life size one, but I still think she did a great job and it's still perfect and beautiful and made with lots of mama love. Her hands were swollen and broken out at the time, and they hurt a lot when that happens, yet she still spent forever on my cake.

Thank you for reading Smiley!

I wish I had pictures of the Hello Kitty cake she spent hours hand decorating (the things a mother does for her babies!) when I was 8. But it collapsed in the fridge before anyone could take pictures, if I remember correctly. Anyway, I should stop rambling.
