Are there any tutorials as to how you get a zip in?

Here's a couple:


2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Re: Two Bracelet/Earring Sets on: February 18, 2011 09:20:45 PM
Well, I'm not an experienced beadweaver, so I can not give any tips...but I think they are lovely. I love the second bracelet & the colors are gorgeous!!

I'd also suggest that maybe your super awesome step-mother would like jewelry like that. I happen to know for a fact that she still wears the stuff you made her 2 Christmases ago....Just sayin'  Tongue
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Wool Slacks to Buttercup Bag on: January 31, 2011 07:01:05 AM
I signed up to be an angel for someone. I've also been wanting to make something out of wool, but didn't want to pay for expensive wool yardage. I found a pair of men's wool slacks at the thrift store, and decided to try making a Buttercup Bag. I had picked up a remnant piece of pink satin a while back & used that for the lining. It turned out great and the wool gives it a lovely texture - perfect for winter! I love the bright colored lining. I hope the recipient will enjoy this bag....it was a little difficult to send it away!

4  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Peacocks from Embroidered Effects on: January 30, 2011 05:58:32 PM
I did the peacocks design from Embroidered Effects for a personal swap. I used silver sequins in the tail feathers. It was a great piece to practice some stitches on. I used split stitch, stem stitch, backstitch, french knots, and a little satin stitch. Thanks for looking!

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Zombie Reminder on: December 26, 2010 09:34:10 AM
I made this for my step-daughter for Christmas! This is the first time I've designed something myself. A friendly reminder to always be prepared for the day zombies arrive. I used 6 strands for the lettering and 2 strands for the brain.

So glad you like everything, and yeah that tool is a hole punch/eyelet setter. There are different sizes so by changing the tips (they screw on & off the metal shaft) you can work with different sizes. You just put it where you want and hit then top end with a hammer to punch a hole. The little black mat is to protect your surface....I always did it on the ground since it's kinda noisy on the table. The tips with the little star on the end will set eyelets. And I just realized I shouldn't have sent that bag of stuff marked Extra...that was for another hole punch tool that I already gave away, so just throw that away!

I just downloaded pictures from my camera & realized I never posted my last bookmark from Yumjello01! I'm so sorry  Cry

She sent me this cute drawn butterfly & it's laminated too. She also sent along a laminated metro pass since she was having so much fun with her new laminating machine!

That's a great idea, I'd join if I was single! Hope you find some others to join you.
