my friend goes to Japanese camp every summer, but they don't allow anything English. she cant stand to be away for two weeks with out music, so i made her a felt bunny to hide her ipod in!

he has a fully lined zipper pocket that holds a video ipod and a grommet in his *butt* for the head phones! I'm going to make myself one know cuz he is so cute!

the inside of the pocket (i used knit cotten jersey)

his butt

wow. sorry i havent updated and responded in a while.

1.thanks to all u and leah for making this my very first featured project! (w00t!)

2. Im sorry, but i am not going to post a tut. cuz im wayyyy to lazy, and i kind winged it in the first place. if u want i can scan the pattern for u guys under 2 conditions:

you dont steal it and use it for profit (cuz its mine). and you have show me your cute creations!!(they don't have to have pockets and butt grommets if you dont want them)

3. my friend wasn't able to use him because her mom stopped her!!! (i know... boo)

4. (finally!) the zipper was yellow cuz i was not paying attention and didnt buy a zipper at the store...

thanks again for the sweet comments and everything! i love craftster!!!

8  junk from the thrift store=cute earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by cats_pajamas on: July 07, 2007 12:35:55 PM
i haven't made jewelry in the longest time, but these things that i found at the thrift store where just asking to be made into cute earrings!
i don't know what the bears are supposed to be, but they are made of a rubbery-type material and are hollow on the inside (which made them easy to drill a hole through.)

the martini glass earrings where made from poker chips!

after finding all this great stuff to make into jewelry i was wondering, Where do you guys find your stuff to make into jewelry?

after lurking in this thread for ages, i finally got around to dyeing it this after noon with my friend.

i owe everything to her! i coundn't have done it with out her.

here is my hair after i bleached it, i didnt use enough bleach, or leave it in long enough, but it still worked out...

and here it is after i use RAW candy pink hair dye on it. it smells and looks like cotton candy now... (i made every one smell it)

That is so stinking cute!  Is the strap attached or is that your.. ahem... bra strap? 

no, its just my bra strap. I'm thinking of attaching a strap from a bra to the shirt (so it is adjustable and less likely to fall off.)

since ppl have had some intrest in making it ill post a (sorta) tut.

to start, take a regular t-shirt pattern (i used a good fitting tee that i traced on to paper) and make it into a one shoulder tank top like this:

make two patterns

then draw on your stripes and label them...

next, cut the pattern apart and fit the pieces onto your fabric (make sure that the knit is facing the the right direction on each pattern, you might want to draw arrows on the pattern while it is still together to make this easier)

when you cut out your pattern from the fabric, add on a 1/2 inch all around (for seam allowance)
this picture should explain both:

as you cut your pieces out, keep the pattern with each piece and keep them in order. this will keep you from getting mixed up later.

then just stitch every thing together (in order, red to orange, orange to yellow and so on and so forth) on your machine with a medium sized strait stitch without stretching your fabrics. you'll get the best results if you let the machine pull the fabric through instead of forcing it in, or pulling it out of the feed dogs.

this is a picture of the inside of the shirt to demonstrate this:

use your other copy of the pattern to cut out the back (make sure that its a mirror image of the front piece you just made so the shoulders line up)

when you get the front all together, stitch the back on to it and hem the edges.

ta-da!!!! your done!

feel free to ask questions for clarification
