11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / More Bracelets on: May 14, 2011 09:11:32 AM
After I have just made ​​the Trashy-Bracelet-Tutorial https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=380412.0, I still could not keep away from the sewing machine.

So I just sewed a couple of bracelets. This time not so trashy. For these bands I have always taken only one fabric and double layered it. Put the rubber band in between.  Just like a sandwich. Then add a few buttons, done.

More pics on my blog.

Hope, you like it?

Today I had an idea what you can sew from fabric remnants:
A trashy bracelet! It's quick, and fun.  Cheesy

OK, here goes:

- a piece of rubber band
- Remnants of fabric
- a fabric pinking shears
- some buttons
- Sewing Machines

Measure a piece of rubber band, so it fits around the wrist. (Not too close!)

Cut out fabric scraps with the pinking shears. It can vary in length and width because it is a trashy band, so you must not be so accurate.

Put the first strip on the rubber band and sew. Keeping the rubber band under tension.

Overlap another stripe and sew, and another, and another...

Then put a few strips back and forth about it and sew.

Spread buttons on the bracelet and sew.

Sew the bracelet at the ends together.
(Before that time consider whether it also is in place.)

Done!  Grin

13  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / DIY Felt-Rabbit-Easteregg-Cup - With tutorial! on: April 22, 2011 02:57:56 AM
Yesterday, I crafted my Last-Minute-Easter-Decoration https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=378837.msg4476929#msg4476929 , and today still have left some felt. So I thought to myself: What can I do that for?

... ... ...

Yes! Exactly! Felt-Rabbit-Easteregg-Cups!

Here's a tutorial about this:

- Felt
- Scissors
- Permanent fabric marker (a fine Edding does it also)
- Needle and thread

Cut out felt an approximately 13.5 cm (about 5,31 inch) long piece with a "T-bar " in the middle.
(For the ears)

Cut out the ears.

Paint a rabbit-face with fabric marker (or fine Edding).

Sew the long ends with a few stitches together.

There you go: done!  Grin

14  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Last-Minute-Easter-Decoration on: April 21, 2011 05:20:03 AM
Hi there,

recently I noticed that I have no proper Easter decoration...
I had to immediately remedy the situation, so I made Last-Minute-Easter-Decoration.
I used felt and satin ribbons and eyelets.

See for yourself:

16  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Easy Felt Ring Tutorial (IMG HVY) on: March 23, 2011 11:28:29 AM
Today I'll show you how to sew a felt ring very quickly!

- Felt scattering components (eg, flower, butterfly, cut, etc., or even what felt)
- Buttons
- a remnant elastic

Now you can start:

Elastic band around the desired finger wrap so that it overlaps slightly. Superfluous cut.

Felt flower with button center to put the elastic band.

Sew. With the machine to go straight, you can sew it well by hand.

Now the elastic band-overlapping (as measured by the finger) and sew together.

After I started with a felt ring, I could not stop at all!
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / New Summertop. (Intended to be a skirt first) on: March 21, 2011 10:45:44 AM
Hello there,

(I am from Germany, so please, please excuse my bad english!)
I wanted to sew a skirt from a rest piece of jersey-fabric.
I draped it on my dress form and sew it together.

But when I pull it on and looked at me in the mirror it was not the way, that I expected it to be...

So I pulled it over my dress form again, and it stucked on the chest of my dress form.
What shoud i say: As a Top it looked great!

So I addet two stripes an voila:
