11  Wham, bam throw pillows! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by drunkenatheist on: August 06, 2010 10:48:43 PM


The tube pillow tute came from Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-shirt (project #87; "Cute Roll-up") and the others were just simple throw pillows (cut the shirt into two square/rectangular panels, sew them wrong sides together leaving a 6" or so hole, turn them right-side out, stuff em and sew the openings).  I think I'm going to be going through a throw pillow phase...good thing my boyfriend can't stop curling up with the smiley face one.  lol!

Thanks for looking!

12  20 minute tote bag! (T-shirt to tote) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by drunkenatheist on: August 06, 2010 01:34:05 AM
From this....

To this...

I used <a href="http://www.vanillajoy.com/tutorials/t-shirt-bag-tutorial">this tutorial</a> to whip together the tote.  Actual work time was somewhere between 20 minutes and a half hour.  I gotta be honest, it had been several years since I had sewn anything, and I was pretty shocked that this didn't come out horribly disfigured, lol!

Also, FYI: Watch out with using 15+ year old t-shirts.  I had to make my base a little wider because I managed to put a hole in the bag while ripping a couple stitches.  Oops.

I was so happy with my sewing job that I even went on to make a few throw pillows.  Yay for newfound crafting confidence!  Tongue

13  Tweaked version of "Mom" tattoo from Subversive Cross-stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by drunkenatheist on: July 16, 2010 04:20:50 AM
This was part of my boyfriend's Christmas gift (09).  I can't imagine that it took me longer than a day to crank out.  I mounted it using a little spray adhesive into a frame.  We keep the glass inside the frame to prevent dust/fuzzies getting drawn to it.

Thanks for looking!

14  Perler bead coasters! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by drunkenatheist on: July 16, 2010 04:06:18 AM
Back in February, I had intended on making my boyfriend some etched rocks glasses to go along with some Star Trek fuse bead coasters for his birthday.  Around this time, I also thought it was a brilliant idea to buy the 11,000 bead jar of unsorted Perler beads.  I finally sat down to make the coasters a few weeks ago and learned that sometimes it's worth spending a little extra money on a supply.  (That realization hit me after the millionth time I squinted my eyes at two beads trying to figure out if they are really the same color or if I've been staring at beads for too long.)

He loves them, even though they're in pop art colors and in no way true to the show.  Smiley  Next project: sitting down and using my etching cream on his rocks glasses!

Here's the back of the dark blue one:

15  Perler bead sprites! in Completed Projects by drunkenatheist on: July 16, 2010 03:58:19 AM
I finally, finally, FINALLY got most of my Perler Beads sorted.  (What a hassle; in the future, I'll just spend the extra money to get the presorted beads instead of buying the jug of 11,000.)  I threw together a set of Bub & Bob sprites and a monkey (from Yoshi's Island, IIRC).  I think Bub & Bob might turn into magnets, but the monkey might just stay as he is.

Here they are!

Thanks for looking!

16  Girl power jewelry box! in The Craftster Guide to Nifty, Thrifty, and Kitschy Crafts by drunkenatheist on: March 17, 2010 03:46:52 PM

I made a modified version of the cigar box jewelry box.  It took forever due to a bunch of life stuff and the fact that I didn't like where it was going.

Here it is in all its heavily decoupaged glory:


It took so long that I'm just happy to have it done, cockeyed mirror and all!  Smiley  Thanks for looking!

Oh, and I should mention that it's been dubbed the "girl power" jewelry box because I had a ton of comic books of female superheros. And I'm cheeky.  lol
