1  butterflies in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by junquette on: February 08, 2009 10:50:34 PM
I have always loved butterflies and think of spring when I see one. But really want to see hundreds right now!
So I made these earrings to help force spring to get here fast

your set is very cute!
SO friendly plastic is making a come back? I can't believe it!
I have so much of it left over from the 80's.
I made horse barrettes and pins from it using a mold. They used to be really popular but I can't even give them away anymore. here's a pic I hope

3  Re: Need a critique of your Etsy shop? This is the place!how about a biz card in Selling Crafts on Etsy.com by junquette on: June 11, 2007 10:49:09 AM

I am trying to work out a design for my biz card with my shoe purses. This is in black and white at the moment but I do plan to do it in colour as soon as DH hooks up the other printer for me. What do you think? Is it too busy? does it get my point across?
other ideas?

4  solution to my problem in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by junquette on: May 02, 2007 08:08:10 PM
I'm not sure this goes here but it is a spoon rack converted into a jewellery holder.
I finally found something that will hold all the necklaces I've been making and loosing because I've had them everywhere!
I found a three tier spoon holder and a bunch of push pins and I found that it held lots more than I expected. I can actually get about 50 of them on there. right now I have about 30 and 6 bracelettes hanging on it. Plus there is even enough places to put my cuff bracelettes too.
At the very top I have a little necklace holder that holds all of my turquoise rings! I have way too many of them  Wink

5  surgery-vest-shoe--- guess who!! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by junquette on: April 25, 2007 08:58:13 PM
Marylin Monroe!
I had surgery last week and couldn't work so I shopped and found a marylin vest in Andy Warholl style with her face all over it in several colours. I have not made a new shoe purse in a while so since I had a big acrylic shoe already taken apart this just had to be!!
Here's a shot of the original shoe

wow sorry about the size of these pictures! I couldn't upload any of them for quite a while and thought I reduced them before I got it through.

6  art deco bar stools reupholstered in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by junquette on: April 04, 2007 05:56:47 PM
these are the stools I reupholstered. They had turquoise plastic and a ton of duct tape and were very ugly but the frames were in fabulous shape. They swivel too.

This is the bar that I redid the 4 stools to match. I sewed the silver and red vinyl together and stapled it all on on the inside then stuck a decal on it.
The whole set turned out really great

I received the most incredible red bag! It's so cool my life is more like the 50's since I work in a soda shop and gingerquilts portrayed it perfectly! It's a red vinyl bag and is large enough to be an over night bag! Perfect for me every few weeks or so. It's fabulous! Not only that
but it came with extras!! She made a glasses case for my cats eye glasses plus a zippered pouch big enough for all I need! It's just perfect.
I absolutely love it gingerquilts! Thank you so much. Now it's swap anxiety for me, I only hope she likes what I made!

I posted your pic for you here hope you don't mind.

This is quite the challenge especially with tshirt fabric. But i really like your idea.

I would cut out a template out of cardboard for each of the peices so you can lay them on the tshirts to cut out.
I think your easiest way to do this is to cut each shirt up the sides and under the arms into two pieces the frint and back.
I would sew the peices together using red thread on to of the reds and yellow on the yellow. I think it might be easies this way. I would get yellow and red ribbon and stitch them onto the points where the tie is to be. then you can tie them together or another neat look might be to sew up the sides again once all pieces are together then let the ribbons hang loose from the side seams.
I hope I'm explaining this alright for you.
Since sewing on tshirt fabric can be tricky I'd use a narrow zigzag stitch. on it. This would also give some extra embelishment to the whole project.
I think you might want to practice one with a couple of old shirts that don't matter first to be sure it's going to work out the way you planned.
good luck and be sure to post a pic when they are done!
