Katsters, you made my day! So much fun! Especially:

The new random tips are SO much more helpful now. I found this one especially useful: Random Tip:  Always accompany guests to the bathroom. It is not necessary to do anything. Just sit and stare. Good to know!! Grin

2  bag for a friend in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Juliska on: August 23, 2010 06:08:36 AM
Hi there,

this would have been something for the recycling challenge, but too late... Roll Eyes

Nevertheless, here it is, my super recycled messenger bag, which I gave to a friend as a birthday present. It is made of an advertising tarp (don't know if this is the right word for it), and I used this tutorial: http://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/2009/06/basic-messenger-bag.html

this is the tarp

and this is the finished bag:

inside with zipper:

and again the whole thing from the top

btw it was awful to work with such a stiff material, but I'm happy with the result and it was the perfect birthday present for my friend who loves soccer...

thanks for looking!

and now I'm hopefully in the right board... (reconstructed... Roll Eyes )

Yesterday I came home and found the parcel of Emuko Shocked It felt like Christmas!!! And the things I got are SO BEAUTIFUL!!!
Here is the gorgeous page - I totally love it and will find a special place in my bedroom for it:

one without flash (I'm afraid, the photos don't show the beauty of the original...):


and here are the extras!!

a pendant with the map of Paris (one of my favorit cities - how did you knew, Emuko?)

And a WONDERFUL necklace with a scissors pendant! It's totally pretty!

and everything together:

I'm so happy with all these things, thank you so much, Emuko!!! I have the feeling that my extras aren't half as good as yours...
Thank you again!

4  "weekend sewing" tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Juliska on: January 15, 2010 06:42:16 AM
these are my first attempts on sewing bags. the pattern is from heather ross "weekend sewing", but i put a zipper in it. the tote in denim was the "prototype" as you may see on all the loose threads hanging around (also the first time i was sewing with denim - three needles broke!), the violet one was a christmas present for my mum - it turned out very well, no threads hanging out, but if you take a close look, you will see, that one handle is twisted. Embarrassed my mum liked it nevertheless...
oh, and if you plan to make this tote, don't skip the inside-pocket as i did on my denim one - it takes ages to find your cellphone without the extrapocket!

5  Re: Old letters in a new book - Help! in Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions by Juliska on: November 12, 2009 01:42:19 PM
hello sierrarose! today I read your question and it reminded me on a project I did long time ago but I have no pictures and it was a present... So, to help a fellow craftster, I reconstructed the process for you - It's a kind of self-made binder for see-through plastic pages - or sheet protectors (I hope we talk about the same thing?), and it's rather cheap to make and you have nearly unlimited possibilities for decorating. so this is what I made:

you need two pieces of good cardboard (a little bit bigger than the plastic pages), power tape (strong, but flexible tape - I only had one in silver, but there are also black ones, which I would prefer) and some kind of clip (I don't know how it is called, but it's easy to get at office supply stores):

find the middle of one cardbord and the middle of the clip, and find out, where the clip for the pages must be, so that there is some space left on the right edge of the cardbord.

cut the clip, so that it will be within the cardboard and secure it with a small piece of tape

fold a piece of tape in the length of the clip (and do it without the crease, which I made, because I was impatient Smiley ), sticky sides together and bunch holes in it - put it on the clip

now take a look, that the second cardboard is absolutely parallel to the right with the clip (it helps to use the table as a guide). and then take the tape and put it on both cardboards from the lower end of the clip with a little bit space in between the cardboards (very important!--but be careful that the thing won't stick on your table!) - do the same thing on the upper side, let a little bit of the tape be longer and fold it back.

now you should have something like this, if you turn it around:

now you take a long stip of tape and press it all the way on the backside (again, fold over the edge to the front).

you can put the plastic-pages in it and you can turn them.

the decoration of the cardboard is up to you! (maybe a picture of granny? a collage? paint it with acrylic paint?) - maybe you should do the decoration first - I'm not sure which way is better... you could use some ribbon (cut a small hole on the edges of the cardboard to put the ribbon like those folders that artists have) to close the folder...

what I made for this post is only the frame to show how you can easily bind sheet protectors - the decoration of the cardboard is the secret that this folder becomes special (and if you are careful - and don't try to take pictures at the same time as struggling with the tape - the whole thing becomes much more neat than mine...)
I hope this helps or at least give you some inspiration. And good luck with your present! It's a wonderful idea!
