4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Skirt that I made... (Img Heavy) on: March 02, 2010 03:17:51 PM
This is a skirt that I made. I used a pattern that I had for the waistband, and made the bottom of the skirt on my own. It's too bad it turned out a little small on me. I'm just glad it turned out so cute! I had gotten the fabric out of the remnants box at Joann's and for a second I thought I wasn't going to have enough, but it all worked out.

The zipper and clasp.

My first time trying this sort of hem. I really like how it turned out.

Special thanks to my little sis for modeling for me! <3

Thanks for looking!! C&C welcome!!

This is awesome! I've been looking to make a fanny pack/hip slinger type thing and this one is very nice. I live in New Orleans and Mardi Gras is right around the corner so it would be nice to make one of these so I can actually throw my arms up and actually catch some beads for change, without having to lug around my purse. Well done!!

Well I would say you have to visit downtown.. you should go to the French Market. The have all sorts of cool dresses, and lots of cool trinkets. While you're there you should go to Cafe' Du Monde and have beignets(it's a few blocks from the French Market). It's a New Orleans tradition! I would say the best way to explore the city is to just roam around downtown. There are all kinds of cool shops and sights to see. On the sides of some of the buildings there are plaques that tell you when it was built and interesting things that happened there, so look for them. One of our most famous restaurants is Commander's Palace and it is actually right around the corner from the house that they filmed The Curious Case of Benjamin Button at. There are so many cool places to see in this city.. just do some googling. Hope I helped & have fun!

I am totally going to do this!  My husband has a gigantic button collection sitting in tubs because he doesn't have a way to display them.  We are getting ready to finish the inside of our garage and I think it would be cool to do this on one of the walls. 

What kind of magnets did you use?  And did you remove all of the pin parts?

I just used these little circular magnets that I got at Michael's. You can get a huge pack of them for about $8. I popped the pins off of the back, and for the ones that were a little difficult to remove,  I used a wire cutter(I think that's what it's called) and pulled the pin out. After I got the pins off, I just hot glued the magnets onto the back of the buttons. I had a few buttons that were a little too small to glue the magnet on properly, so I trimmed down the magnet a little bit so it would slide in and I could glue it on right.

  A wall of magnets sounds awesome! You should definitely post some pictures of that when you're done. That's a really great idea. :]

So I had this collection of pins that had been hanging up on my wall for the longest time. I'd been wanting to do something with them to display them a little nicer, but never got around to it.. So the other day I came up with the idea to turn them into magnets, since I never wear them. Here's the before & after:

Here's when they were hanging on a ribbon by my door. My dog was sitting there while I was taking a picture of it so I got her in there too. Tongue

Here they are as magnets. The picture frames were made by my aunt, by the way.. aren't they adorable?

Thanks for looking! Let me know what you think. =]
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Adorable pink earrings & rose ring on: January 08, 2010 02:47:22 PM
So I had this bag of trinkets I had been meaning to turn into jewelry & finally got around to making them the other day, so here they are:

For this pair, I used hearts for the studs.

And for these, I used flowers for the studs.. Let me know which ones you like best!

And here is the rose ring I made also.. I didn't make the rose part by hand, but I plan on making a mold of it so I can have them in different colors.

Hope you like them and thanks for looking! Comments and criticism are welcome!
