2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / necklace - lucky charm! on: December 19, 2005 06:35:50 PM
first time making jewelry!
this is a necklace with a lucky charm a did this afternoon... I'm going to use it on December 31, we call it PATU (pi - too - i) and we use it to attract luck and to keep us away from bad luck, envy, and negative energies from other people!

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / *PICS* pirate handmade journal/diary! "whole-page bookbinding" TUTORIAL ADDED on: December 19, 2005 06:23:19 PM
ok, so x-mas is coming and i had to do something to my bf. actually i've already bought a book for him, but i wanted to give something special, something I did!
we live in Brasil and next January he's going to spend 1 month in new york Sad so i made him a diary, just like the ooooold pirates used to have when they went sailing and looking for treasures  Grin  I'm a little obsessed with pirates, and he likes them too Wink
The binding is a different way i learnt in college (I'm a graphic design student and we were making books) and i haven't seen it on craftster... it's cool 'cos you can use the whole page, pretty useful if you draw a lot!
feel free to ask me if you need a tutorial, I'd love to help you and make one.

no more talking, here are the pics!

AHOY, CAPTAIN! (did you ever played 'the secret of monkey island' ?)


i guess now you can understand the binding ...

that's all for now!
I'm sorry about the messy english

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Zebra Purse with ribbons! [with pics!!] on: July 15, 2005 08:00:05 PM
this is my 1st project that's not a recon. I can barely believe it that i bought this fabric for U$1 (R$3 in brazilian money) a meter!! the inside was only U$0,30/meter. Pretty unbelievable.

I followed supereggplant.com (i'm a mariko fan! hehe) tutorial for tote bag, but it's a mini... actually, a hand bag! I added a cute ribbon outside and a label from Weee!Wear - which is my almost-done-commerce - and fot this one I MUST thank vanityandagun tutorial .

soooo... here are the pic so you'll understand my messy explanation!

ribbon close up:

and the label!

that's it, see ya!
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / first t-shirt recon! on: July 04, 2005 11:55:07 AM
omg. i'm a sewing machine bitch.  it's addictive , once you start it you can never stop.

this one used to be a XG t-shirt from a punk band that my boyfriend never used ... so he gave it to me and here it is.

after i did put a cute ribbon on the shoulder , i'm not sure if you can see it on the second pic ... messy pictures , dirty mirror...sorry!
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Exploited purse *with pics ^^ * on: June 24, 2005 11:07:55 AM
Hello again ^^

I had this t-shirt for years , and actually i would never wear 'cos it's from Dance of Days , a brazilian awful "emo" band, and they "copied" their silk from Exploited.
So i did cut the "Dance of Days" logo and let only this awesome punk skull in red...and made a purse!
now i have a exploited bag and i'm in love with it.

here are the pics.

t-shirt ...

... to bag!

a view from the inside.

that's me in the bathroom Smiley

that's it!
see ya later Smiley
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / purse made from old pants! [first post ever] on: June 21, 2005 01:28:03 PM
heeeey everybody.
this is a bag i made a few weeks ago , actually it was my first sewing project ever lol
i'm still learning how to use the sewing machine.
my old pair of jeans didnt fit me anymore , and it used to be my fav! so i brought it back to live, i needed something to carry my notebooks and stuff to college...
the straps are made of the legs .
i think it came out nice , i never thought i could do anything like this.

here are the pics! hope it works...

the purse Smiley

a nice view from the inside fabric . i spent only 1 dollar (but i'm on Brasil and it was 3 REAIS , our local $) and it's so cute.

it's really big inside .

i can use the old pockets and it's REALLY useful.

thanks everybody Smiley
i don't think i need to post a tutorial , i've seen some bags like this one on the forum before Smiley but any doubts just ask me!
