1  Ladybug matching Purse and Cell Phone Holder (5 photos) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by BeccatotheMax on: August 11, 2009 09:48:16 PM
So about two weeks ago my Stepmother asks me to make her a purse and this is what I came up with!  Actually, the first thing she needed was a cell phone holder she could clip onto her pants for work because all of the ones she ordered were the wrong size!

Sorry if these photos don't turn up well, my photo taking skills could use some work.

This is the cell phone holder:

Here it is open (the lining is an aqua-ish color):

Here it is laid flat:

Here is the purse (tried rotating, apparently it didn't work):

And here is a close up of the adorable ladybug fabric I used:

Everything was hand sewn, so that's why it looks a little rough, and the cell phone holder closes with a snap and some magnets.

C&C welcome!   Smiley

2  German Paper Carousel (6 pics) in Completed Projects by BeccatotheMax on: July 20, 2009 07:02:48 PM
Hello everyone! This is my first craft post, and I'm so excited!  I figured this would go in Misc. because it's not really a paper craft since it came already pre-done in the box.  If I'm not allowed to post something from a kit, please tell me so I don't make the same mistake twice! Smiley

So while on vacation in Germany, I stumbled upon this paper carousel that I thought would be wonderful for my stepmother!  I did not know what I was getting into.  

4 weeks later, I open the box and get to craftin'.  Now to shed some light, this carousel is a whopping 900 pieces, all paper!  The directions were all in either German or French, so I pretty much had some "craft by looking at the pictures" moments.  I'm sad that I didn't take WIP photos, because some of it looked pretty intimidating.

The finished product!

P.S. This carousel actually works! There is a hand crank that makes the body move, and there is a sound system that plays some traditional carousel music! All in all, this craft took me about a week and a half because some of the parts needed to dry overnight. Lots of glue involved, so much that my hands smelled like it for about 3 days afterwards.

Comments and Criticisms are appreciated and welcomed Smiley
Thanks for looking! Smiley
