21  Pink satin bag with green lining and trim in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by sarahdotcom on: August 29, 2004 12:38:20 AM

I made this to go with an outfit I'm wearing to a wedding in October.
It didn't really come out as professional-looking as I wanted, as it was really hard!  I gave up on an inside pocket with zip I was going to do, and the handle is a little bit off-centre, but I don't care any more because it's FINISHED!  It was also really cheap to make as all the fabric was on special.

Now I can go back to sewing pajama pants, skirts, and t-shirt reconstructions Wink

Here's my finished bag.  It came out a little bit wonky, but I'm reasonably happy with it.  The handles felted waaay more than the rest of it!  I added a crochet flower to make it look a bit more interesting.  It's just pinned on.

23  Basmati rice bag photo story in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sarahdotcom on: June 04, 2004 05:31:05 AM
I don't feel like writing much text so I'll just let the photos say it all!

One 5kg basmati rice bag, unpicked and cut into two pieces.

Added in a denim gusset (and guess who forgot to pre-wash the denim?  I guess I'll just have to worry about that later).

One piece of calico, folded and sewn up to form the lining.

Time to give it corners!

Sew the handle on before the lining!

A bag is born.

I'm a walking advertisement for Moshim's!

24  Resin bracelets in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by sarahdotcom on: December 13, 2003 02:54:03 PM
Hey, this is my first post here so I'm a little nervous... I posted this at craftgrrl yesterday so some of you may have seen it before:

They're made of resin and moulded in ice cube trays.  There's a teaspoon of resin (left to harden), then a picture (inkjet printout) dipped in resin and placed on top of that, followed by another teaspoon of resin.  Follow the instructions on whatever resin you buy, and I'd suggest doing this outside because it gets a little toxic.  Cover it up with some kind of box while it dries to keep the dust out.

They're not too hard to get out of the trays, although sometimes a little persuasion is needed from a craft knife.  The surface has to be polished or varnished somehow to shine it up and to allow the picture to show through properly.  I haven't completely refined that part of the process yet so if anyone has any ideas...

Then I just drilled some holes in and attached it all together with 10mm jump rings.  Hope you like!
