51  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Creepy Cute Doll on: September 12, 2006 08:17:46 PM
fizzledimpulse should be getting this doll tomorrow. She was flaked on in a swap and I was lucky enough to get to "angel" for her. I am really hoping that she likes it.
52  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Red Wool Clutch Purse w/Fabric Collage Top on: August 22, 2005 08:51:03 AM
I'm posting a purse on craftster!!
I made this clutch on Saturday. It's red wool on the outside and has a flap. Right now I have a ribbon/braid running through two gromets that I hammered in but I'm going to try some other things. I topstitched a collage of different fabrics and threads before lining it.

53  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Cool Idea (Bad pix...) WEATHERGRAMS! on: May 26, 2005 01:26:17 PM
Weathergrams -- Fun and Cool and Easy! Tutorial.
My scans came out really strange (any help on this for future tutes = appreciated!). I dont' remember where I first found the instructions for these but it was a while ago. To explain WHAT it is--this is the copy that you put on the inside (in your own words or not):
"Hang this Weathergram outdoors to be completed by nature's elements. Weathergrams are generally replaced at the EQUINOX and SOLSTICE as a way of celebrating the seasons. I recommend you visit your Weathergram from time to time and bring it in when you think it's just right."
Size of good quality, sturdy paper (I like a rough finish; I used red paper here): 12" X 3". 3" at the top gets folded down.
In the fold down position, decorate however you like--paint, stamp, colored pencils--I did them all here. Punch a hole at the top (the hole is going through the "flap" and the back of the paper now). Print out the saying so it fits within the 3" width. Open the flap and glue the saying on the backside of the flap. Then I used cheap but natural looking twine to put through the top hole plus, you'll see, that I also punched the flap part, too, and  strung twine with a cute button at the end. So fun!!! A card that becomes MORE artful in nature!!!
I hope this works as far as getting the pictures on here...it's my first offering to craftster.
54  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Can I Stitch a Pattern on My Top Layer... on: March 23, 2005 09:50:58 AM
even though I've already sewn my applique images to this top layer???
This is my first quilt project--luckily it's just 24" X 24". It's looking a bit too plain against this solid orange material that I picked...so  I want to give it some life. Is it just crazy to try to put some stitching on it now? Also--big question--do I do this jazz-up stitching BEFORE I make the "sandwich" so that it's just on this top layer???
Thanks for info!!
55  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Collage Paper onto a Fabric Purse?? on: March 08, 2005 11:12:07 AM
Any suggestions on how to collage words, paper visuals, etc. onto a fabric handbag other than sewing around the paper?  I couldn't find anything when I searched. Much thanks 4 help.
56  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Using chain for purse straps--pls help! on: March 03, 2005 06:33:48 AM
I'd like to use some chain links that I got from Home Depot for purse straps but I couldn't figure out how I could do it when I tried last night. I  usually sandwich webbing between the outer fabric and lining and sew over it. Can anyone tell me how they've done it--or might do it? Would you go ahead and sew the outer and lining together and THEN just hand sew the chain into the lining??? Honestly and truly any help would be great. Thanks muchly, Susan
