11  Padded ipod cozy in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by wickedmouse on: March 21, 2010 10:01:16 AM
I have recently become very intersted in making pouches and bags. Here is a padded cozy I whipped up the other night. I am a clumsy, clumsy individual and wanted something a little more protective for my ipod touch.

I am a little disapointed with the straightness of the machine stiching. I am a beginner at best (and using a very old machine). I will get the hang of it.

12  Charlotte - my first doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by wickedmouse on: February 18, 2010 08:31:46 AM
This is Charlotte. She is my very first attempt at making a doll.

I first stumbled across Waldorf dolls here on Craftster and fell in love with their little expressionless faces. It was a three week project and I had a couple issues.

1. Floppy Head
2. Neck Wrinkles

Despite those things I really love the way she turned out. I used a chenille-type baby yarn for the wig and she is wearing one of 2 outfits I made for her. I used an American Girl clothes pattern and altered just a bit. One was this pink princess dress, petticoat and jacket.

My niece Alicia turned 5 on Valentines Day and this was one of my gifts to her.

Thanks to all the people who's posts I studied so hard in order to make this.

Feedback really appreciated on the problems.

13  Old picture frames....monogramed jewelry frame in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by wickedmouse on: November 23, 2009 10:22:36 PM

I had an abundance of picture frames that had no glass. With the price of picture frames (and suitable substitutes) so low, I always just replace the entire frame.

I embroidered monograms on black material and padded a piece of cardboard before mounting.

 I also added a few beads and embellishments along with a few strips of ribbon to hold a bracelet, necklace or ring.

14  Old Levi's - become Memory Box in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by wickedmouse on: November 23, 2009 09:53:45 PM

Here is a new box (made of post consumer recycled paper) that I covered in a the scraps from a pair of old levi's.

The waistband goes round the top and the entire outside is covered in material.

I make them as memory boxes. Inside, a denim pocket holds cards and a pencil. Small notes and memories are recorded and slipped inside. My life is fast paced and I do not want to forget those funny things my children say and do. This is a simple way of keeping memories.

I have attached a silver dog tag and plan on hand stamping a little something on each one I make as a gift this Christmas.

The credit goes to a friend of mine who mentioned the idea.

15  Vintage cufflink ...The Remake in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by wickedmouse on: November 23, 2009 09:38:33 PM
I found a pair of fantastic cufflinks at mt local thrift/antique store.

The colors in the glass(?) is out of this world. The colors seem to move...it is a very dimensional piece.

I removed the protruding piece from the back and strung it with a sterling silver ball chain.

This is my favorite bauble!

It measures 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch.

17  Pixie bottle in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by wickedmouse on: November 08, 2009 08:37:45 AM
This is a tiny Pixie bottle I made for my boyfriend's niece for Christmas.

Just added some glitter and star beads to the bottle and a ribbon through a letter bead and afixed with superglue. It hangs on a card I made with thick paper and stamps.

18  Beaded medicine bag in Beads: Completed Projects by wickedmouse on: October 05, 2009 07:52:54 AM
This is a medicine bag that I made a while back.

The bird is a graphic from Gary Jennings book Aztec Blood.

I still have yet to attach the neck strap, I am looking for something a little unique.

19  My first pop tab bag (with pics) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by wickedmouse on: October 05, 2009 07:43:45 AM
This is my first pop tabs purse.
Many years back (when I was in grade school) my father made belts from pop tabs.

I had forgotten all about pop tabs until recently when the idea of a pop tab purse started forming in my mind. I am an avid collector of purses and thought it would make a great addition to my others. Turns out dad had been saving tabs all these years!!

First I had to locate enough ribbon for what I had in mind. I settled on two shades of grey (pewter and silver) and alternated them in the weave.

Several years back I had made and embroidered a velvet table runner. I was not pleased with the hem and shoved it away with my fabric scraps. It worked prfectly for the lining of the bag. I am terrible with lining things but I think it turned out great.
