1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / RECONSTRUCTIONS for a presentation on: July 09, 2009 02:52:38 AM
okay so i'm going for a group job interview, my first career-related job interview
and one of the things is to present a 5 minute oral presentation to everyone, about anything you want

im considering conducting my presentation on object reconstructions
anyone have any fave reconstructions that would look great up on a powerpoint presentation to talk about as examples?
i have a few ideas in mind, but nervousness means i need a big prod in the right direction Smiley
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Jagermeister Insulated Cooler Bag on: January 30, 2009 08:28:35 PM
I guess this is technically a purses/bags/wallets topic, because its made to hold stuff in it.
Or more specifically, made to hold a 700ml bottle of Jagermeister.

This reverse-cosy is made of felt, and is lined with an insulated material that is made to maintain coldness.

Keep your Jager chilled this summer!


It has been made as a continuation of my other Jager-related crafts

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Gothic spikey lace-up lamp on: July 20, 2008 04:16:55 AM
See https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=258234.0 for the full story, or go to http://ladydementorette.deviantart.com

Anyhoo, I originally had a pair of reconstructed boots:


Which I chopped off, and turned into a lamp shade:


It was fairly handy, it produced a low, sexy dull mood light in the room and held heat pretty well.

Peace out,
4  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Spikey gothic boots to shoes to lamp to sandals on: July 20, 2008 04:11:27 AM
Originally these were a pair of plain boots.

I added eyelets and lace to them and spikes:


After wearing them to death, I then cut the boots down and turned them into Mary Jane shoes:


And the rest of the boot subsequently became a lamp:


But after awhile, I got sick of the Mary Janes, and stripped them down to the base, and turned them into sandals, by using the spikey bit from the lamp as the strap to go over the foot.

5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Plush Pacman Game!! on: July 20, 2008 04:02:05 AM
Okay, I'm totally hooked on Pacman, and his Ghosty enemies.
So why not make them out of felt?


Since making them, I have attached velcro to the packs of them and attached them to a stick, so it can rest on a ledge or sill, or the top of my bookshelf.

However, I also made another purple ghosty, and sewed some ribbon to the top of it, and turned it into a keyring, that can also hand from the mirror of my car.
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Felt Nintendo NES Controller on: July 20, 2008 03:58:07 AM
I do remember people making these things awhile ago, so I admit that this is not an original idea. But I figured it was now my turn to make a felt Nintendo NES controller.

7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Plush Jagermeister bottle and cocktail glass on: July 20, 2008 03:55:11 AM
Okay, haven't posted anything on craftster.org in over a year, so forgive me if the images dont show.
if they dont, just go to http://ladydementorette.deviantart.com and you shall find them there.

Anyways, my cocktail glass broke yesterday, I loved it muchly. So in mourning, I made a felt version of it *grins*


And here is a felt version of a Jagermeister bottle, because I do have quite a love affair with Jagermeister lately.


Aaaaand here is a picture of them both together, in a set Cheesy


Peace out fellow craftsters!!
8  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / ~Painted Triangle Rock Canvas Shoes~ on: January 18, 2007 09:13:06 PM
I bought this pair of plain white canvas shoes by Dunlop for about $12 from Big W, my mission was to paint a pattern (because I love patterns) that is unlikely to be seen on anyone else's shoes (because I hate how everyone wears those checkerboard vans, even though the look so cool they are no longer unique).

Thus the Triangle Jungle was born (okay, okay, so I occasionally name my shoes....):


I challenge you now to run into someone else in the street with these shoes! (unless you can buy shoes with a similar pattern? I hope not!)
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / ~A Top Hat Lamp!!~ on: January 18, 2007 09:03:16 PM
I saw this really cool futuristic metal lamp base in Target about a week ago. It was for $12 in the bargain bin because it was missing a shade for it, so I couldn't resist getting it, if not just to make a whole bunch of lamp shades for it for fun that suit my room that I could alternate between.

This top hat was purchased from Lombards for about $10, I used it for my school's dress up day and it had been sitting on my shelf ever since. The photos don't really do justice, the lamp looks so cool in real life, although I know a more elegant black lamp base would have suited this hat more.

10  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / *~Dunlop Canvas Checkerboard Painted Shoes!!~* on: December 21, 2006 12:09:13 AM
Hi guys!

I know checkerboard shoes are so totally overrated now, but I did paint these a fair while ago. They were originally a pair of pink and white camoflauge shoes that I bought at a shoe sale for AU$7, I wore them tons and got sick of the pattern on them, so I decided to paint them. I'm hooked on checkerboard so I wanted to reflect that in my shoes, unfortunately the shops agrees with me and stocked checkerboard shoes more frequently too Sad I then coated them in a layer of Modge Podge to seal them. They held up really well, and were my favourite pair of shoes.

Anyhoo, originally I started with a green and grey checks pattern. Unfortunately, when the grey dried later on, the two colours were very similar, not must of a contrast, so I had to change the colour to make them stand out a bit more.

Here's what they looked like when I painted over the grey with black.
