1  first fabric wallet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by smellymel on: November 09, 2007 12:50:16 PM
 a couple of weeks ago my wallet got lost in the trash (long story) so i decided to make one out of the TONS of vintage fabric that my mom sent me. i was a bit impatient the day i made it so it's not the best, but i'm happy with how it turned out.

i just started sewing...i've only done simple pillows and pajama pants until now. for the fabric, i used some vintage pillowcases that i had lying around. here's a pic.

6  respective bathroom buddhists (?) in CHALLENGE 11 ENTRIES by smellymel on: May 05, 2006 09:10:36 PM
i found these about a year ago at a weird little book shop and decided that i had to have them. the orange canvas background was untreated and dirty with grease spots or something and this challenge inspired me to finally do something with them. i had leftover paint from doing my shower curtain so they became new bathroom decor. they're nothing super special, but since seeing this challenge inspired me to FINALLY do something with them, i've decided to post pics.

7  heart pillow 1st seaming project in Crochet: Completed Projects by smellymel on: February 19, 2006 09:19:27 AM
i decided to make this heart shaped pillow from http://www.crochetme.com/pieces-of-my-heart last week. i started out just doing it for fun but realized an old friend had a birthday coming, so i gave it to her. i really liked how it turned out for my first seaming project, but i don't think i put enough fiberfill in in  Undecided oh well...she loved it, and it was good practice!

9  my first "real" crochet project! in Crochet: Completed Projects by smellymel on: November 29, 2005 09:58:45 AM
i've done a lot of practice swatches over the past month or so, which i then named pot holders and pawned off on my mom. then i decided my first project would be a scarf for her, since she put up with and willingly took the crap that i made. i kind of didn't have enough yarn, so i had to take a couple inches off the length of the scarf itself and the tassles. i think it turned out okay....

then goatgodess' super fabulous fat baby chinese new year poster bookmark rocked my socks off:

finally, flareon's "asian dragonfly". it's so delicate and beautiful...i don't want to use it!
