11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Altoids/Mini tin swap anybody?? :) on: March 22, 2005 09:24:57 PM
I was checking back in the archives to see if this swaps been done before but I can't find it if it has been.

I see all the amazing stuff people are making from Altoids and other mint tins, everything from portable shrines, makeup cases, hygeine product holders, condom holders (so discreet), and even purses. 

Lets face it, they're fun, they're versatile and they make a nice small easy to mail swap item. Yeah!

So, if anybodies interested in an Altoids tin swap, let me know what you think, I wouldn't mind taking a stab at organizing it  Smiley
12  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Bad Skully Kitty Stencil on: March 19, 2005 11:18:58 PM
This is my latest stencil, it's on a black shirt and was for my swap buddy in the Skull Swap.. I'm really happy with the way the silver acrylic paint (mixed with textile base) really makes the stencil pop.

13  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Death by Chocolate Skully Soap on: March 19, 2005 11:05:12 PM
I was just recently in the 'Skull Swap' and since I've been mucking around with melt and pour soap for awhile I wanted to combine the two. Let me tell you it's not easy to find a skull soap mold, and then one that doesn't look like some kind of 'C' horror movie reject!

I ended up finding a great one on Ebay, a single cavity mold that makes one round bar that's about 3.5" across by 2" deep. I used a Chocolate Cake soap sent.. and a little green and orange dye to make a slight brown. Voila..

Death by Chocolate Soap *skulltastic!*

And then the little label on the back has a skull and a chocolate Easter bunny missing an ear Wink

Mmmmmm chocolate...
14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My Flippin' Sweet Napoleon Dynamite Tote Bags.. *pic heavy* on: January 29, 2005 10:52:41 PM
My new passion is purses and I made one of these for myself and was smart enough to buy extra fabrics just incase. *go me!* So I'm walking around the mall and such with my new spiffy NP tote and everybodies freaking because they like it. I got mobbed in Claires!

My Liger tote..The front and back have heat press decals

The Inside has a stenciled pocket that says 'Idiot!'

and my second tote I finished today... I stenciled the front  Cheesy The rest is the same

I had a lot of fun making these and they turned out really really well, I was excited  Grin
I'm kind of nervous but I thought I'd try selling them on eBay. I've sold stuff before but never something DIY that I've made. If anybody that's sold purses on eBay has any advice it'd be appreciated  Smiley
Thanks for looking!

15  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My very first tweedy little Jordy Bag on: January 19, 2005 10:09:49 PM
 I was totally inspired by everybodies millions of different takes on the 'Jordy Bag' so I decided for my first one I'd try keeping it simple and classic with a little tweed bag. Smiley

I liked the flap and button idea because the topstitching looks kinda classy and retro when it's all tied together with the lining...

I added a little squared off pocket inside that I reinforced with some mid weight interfacing just so all the stuff I put in there won't fall out.

Other then that I'm pretty surprised at how easy and fun that was to make Smiley

16  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / My first 2 attempts at Black Shirt Iron on Printer Paper on: January 10, 2005 12:26:35 AM
I had these posted on my blog, and I just found this site (it's bloody great I must add) so I thought I'd throw them up here to show my decals I made with Avery brand iron on printer paper for black shirts  Smiley

My Kurt Cobain decal pre iron on

Pretty Kurt now on my nice black fruit of the Loom shirt

And one I made for my boy this week..

Very old skool I liked the little Mario star  Shocked

I have to admit although fairly expensive per decal I really find this stuff super easy to use  Cheesy
