51  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Michael Jackson messenger bag?! (pictures) on: June 08, 2005 11:53:57 AM
      All right, folks, this is a very sad tale. I bought some white denim and sewed it up into a messenger bag. Surprisingly, (VERY surprisingly, considering my sewing skill), the sewing went without a hitch and I had a great bag to start working on. I was making it My Chemical Romance-themed; I was going to have lyrics, stencils, buttons, etc. all over it, but instead of the emo-ish colors and themes that unfortunately usually accompany MCR, I wanted it to be bright and colorful. Well, here's how it turned out:

       The stencil is of Gerard Way, the singer. Unfortunately, I got so many people asking me if it was Michael Jackson that I was traumatized into trying to fix his nose. A combination of whiteout, sharpies, and paint made him even more skeletal and Michael-looking.

That, plus, with my filthy school, two days of carrying it around got the following lovely stains:

Yup, that's almost completely duct tape. There's a coat hanger wire running through the stem and stamen to give support, but otherwise it's all tape.

Hope you like it!

This was made from neon green and black duct tape; the texture is really odd, but cool. I finished it in an hour, triumphant with a scissors battle scar on my finger.

The inside:

These are just some white jeans that I Moulin-Rougified with sharpies. I can't really tell you how long they took to make; I sort of worked on them for a day, left them for a week, worked on them, etc. I have put them in the wash (after ironing to heat set-them) and they came out faded, but almost as good as new. I'm sorry about both the quality and quantity of pictures; I had to take a lot because my crappy camera can't pick up detail.

I hope you like them!

This is my first actual post! I hope you guys like it. I made this purse by drilling holes in pennies (and foreign coins for the handle) and threading them together with fishing line and embroidery floss. The pennies aren't attached to the lining; they are just hanging over it. When you have it on your arm it hangs to just above your waist. Sorry about the poor quality pictures!

56  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Problems with Badge-A-Minit on: February 27, 2005 01:58:19 PM
Hello there; this is my first post at Craftster and I hope you can help! I just got a Badge-A-Minit hand press and every now and then the button come out with a little of the clear plastic covering coming out of the back. I was wondering if anybody else has had this problem and may know how to fix it. Thanks a lot!
