1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Elephant jewelry box *0* (WITH TUTORIAL) on: July 19, 2011 02:32:29 PM
I love this! All the pictures reminded me of wood shop class in middle school. I can even smell the sawdust now.

I wish I had access to the tools for this, I would definitely make one.

OMG, those little critters are adorable. If the hedgehog was a bit rounder, you could play a tiny game of Alice croquet Tongue

Those are great! He looks proud.

If you're having trouble with toner sticking to regular printer paper, you probably need a new fuser. If it's specialty paper, make sure you get the stuff for laser printers next time Wink  As a temporary fix, though, try ironing it (with another piece of paper on top to protect the iron). (also no steam!)

I received this marvelous little cross-stitched needle book from Usagi-chan! Just what I needed, it's already filling up with needles that had no homes.

Wow. Just wow.
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / A cute vintageish shoulder bag on: June 07, 2011 09:14:11 PM
I entered into a personal swap with GoldenSunshine for some beads she wanted to destash, so I offered to make her a purse. I looked through her wists, and then through my fabric stash, and found a lovely vintageish patterned cotton that I had picked up in a bundle of remnants that felt similar to some of the things she said she liked.

She just asked that it had a strap long enough to be worn on the shoulder, and that it have a separate pocket for her phone.

I sent her a note explaining where everything came from, and she enjoyed it, so I'll share with you all too Wink The ribbon came from my grandmother's stash, the buttons (there's two of them stacked) came from a collection of buttons I picked up at a thrift store. I highly suspect both the buttons and the ribbon were manufactured in the 70s.

The inside zipper was removed from some old clothes - I'm not sure what, though. Probably pants. I learned how to insert zippers better *after* making this bag, so I wish I could do it, oops.

The fabric was interfaced and the whole thing was lined in satin. Also, I tucked a nice little selection of vintage buttons that also came from that collection I picked up for her to keep.

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: TUTORIAL: Reconstructed Men's Shirt to Button-down Tank Top! (surgery prep) on: June 03, 2011 04:20:43 PM
Here's the first one! Couldn't get her to do an action shot, but I think it looked great on her.

The one thing I did differently.... was I sewed the buttons shut. She never wore this shirt much before because it always needed ironing, and neither of us wanted to bother. Now I'm happy to report this shirt will get worn without needing ironing! Hooray!

Oh, I also cheated and used my serger instead of rolled hems.  Tongue

Definitely going to do some more. I've been trying to think of some style changes to do on some of them so they're not all the same. I want to try shirring something, so I might work in a shirred waist on one.
