1  Some stencils of my love, Michael Jackson :) in Stenciling: Completed Projects by LovecatLiz on: March 03, 2010 12:26:43 PM
I printed these stencils out from the internet and transfered them onto nice paper using tracing and paint. So I can't take credit for the stencil itself. But I am proud of my steady hand Smiley  Hope you like them as much as I do!

I added some watercolor to this one, the other ones I like just black and white.

I can't wait to frame these and put them up in my room!

2  Nintendo controller Wristlet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by LovecatLiz on: September 17, 2009 08:07:54 PM
Felt, a zipper and a hot glue gun are all it took to make this nifty wristlet. I adore it. My friend wants it to put his gameboy and games in....I said no. Grin

The back.

Thanks for looking!!

3  Lovecat's version of record purses. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by LovecatLiz on: September 17, 2009 05:57:23 PM
I fell in love with these as soon as I made them.
I used my handy dandy hot glue gun to attach the fabric, and let me just say, it works beautifully. The cutting of these sucks. I used a heavy duty razor,  thats why the handles on the second one are uneven. But i figure it adds charm.  Grin

I used blue hemp string to attach the handles.

This one I love more.

Thanks for looking!

4  Watercolor Stencil the Lovecat way :) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by LovecatLiz on: August 12, 2009 11:35:09 PM

My best friend's birthday is tomorrow. I've been seeing so many gorgeous watercolor stencil pantings on here, I wanted to try my hand at one for her. So I made her a portrait of herself. I used my favorite picture of her to make the stencil. I love how it turned out!!  Shocked
I'm going to make one of my sister and I for my mom next. I'll post the steps how I did it too. It's soooooo simple.

This is the original picture. Isn't she pretty? Grin

You know I was thinking of entering this into the "Dollar Store" Challenge, because everything I made this with I got at the Dollar store. What do you think?? Oh! And also I bought a frame there too for this picture, but I didn't take a picture with it because it made a glare.

5  Plastic Bags+Crochet= Awesome Clutch! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by LovecatLiz on: July 25, 2009 02:56:37 PM
I've seen people crochet plastic bags into reusable grocery bags. I LOVED the idea. So I took a shot at it. Halfway through I thought about it, and I wanted to make it into a clutch purse instead. Check it out! Grin

I lined it with extra fabric I had from a previous bag I made.

It's quite roomy actually.

It was so much fun to make! I'll be making more soon. For crochet-ers, I used a triple crochet stitch and a size 8 hook. The bags are Walmart plastic bags. As far as how many bags it took to make this??? I'm sorry, I didn't count. You take a plastic bag, cut off the bottom and top, and then cut it into one long strip.....I should post a tutorial next time I make one and then I can be more precise huh? Would anyone be interested in a tute?

The possibilities are endless! I want to make a black one out of those big black garbage bags. And as far as the style of purse, you can do other kinds besides a clutch. The wheels are turning in my head.

I would LOVE to hear suggestions as to what else you can do with crochet plastic bags. Lets see, you can make floor mats, car mats, place mats, coasters, produce bags, shelf liners...hmm, what else can we do guys?

Thanks for looking! Tongue
