1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Ghost Girl (book character) inspired hand mirror on: September 19, 2012 12:34:07 PM
I present:  Ghost Girl inspired hand mirror
(rescued for 50 cent from thrift store)


Added some bling to front of handle as well

I've read the trilogy and it just hit me that I wanted a mirror inspired by the character. I've gotten a couple of comments when I've taken it with me on trips.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / The Man bag/ the manly carry all - for work or travel on: December 12, 2010 04:13:05 PM
I got the idea from cut out and keep
but there was no tute so I did some piecing together of the bag as I went along
I used one pair of men's cargo pants from good will (should have got a bigger size
than 30-31 would have had more to work with but I think it turned out ok)
and one mens wrangler shirt to line the bag. I sewed this by hand but would recommend
if you are more friendly with sewing machines than I am use one of those instead.

This was the result:

I came up with using the cuff for deco on the front on a whim

I save the pockets from the shirt so the bag has a total of 6 pockets

It will be a present for my boyfriend who travels a bunch for work and could use a med size bag for some of the things he carries around.
Now my cousin the grad student has requested one too so it will be an inexpensive christmas present.
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / hello kitty marker/crayon apron on: December 12, 2010 03:47:18 PM
This was a gift for the birthday of my boyfriends daughter. She is five
and loves hello kitty so I got some coloring and activity books for her
and this was to go along with them.

I had left over hello kitty fabric and red double sided hem binding so this
was the result (there was no pattern since it was made on a whim)

she was wearing it around her waist while coloring after her bday party so it was a winner.
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Monster high skull shrinky dink jewelry-My first craft posting on: August 10, 2010 09:06:52 PM
Monster high skull shrinky dink jewelry-My first craft posting so be gentle
I'm relatively new to using shrinky dinks as jewelry so of course I'm using alot until
the novelty wears off...hopefully Smiley

Right now I'm in to Monster High which I'm finding not alot of people have heard of yet but
Matel has come out with products of the characters-which are creepy cute!
and I took their skull logo and changed it to purple (I'm adverse to the color pink)

I know the instructions say not to use markers but I used a permanent marker for the black and
it didnt run or bleed during the process, I thought it made it look bold

the eyes kinda look like they have eyelashes at the ends,
the chain was attached to a multistrand necklace so I liberated it for this project

forgive the picture quailty too!

I want to do the school crest next!
