Awwwww, that is awesome!  I wish I had a cool name like "Lulu"; Grandmas always have the BEST names!  (Mine were Astrid -- but she went by Vera, her middle name -- and Aurora.) 

Lulu does rock.  I don't even know her, but I'm pro-Grandma and Grandmas usually rock!
great job, your gran is lucky to have YOU as well! Smiley
Lulu DOES rock!  Well the T-shirt anyway.  If only I knew the real rocking lulu!  Fabulous job!

Thanks everyone!! I am kind of afraid to show it to her, she might think I have lost my mind. I am pretty sure all her grandkids (And Great grandkids!!)are going to get one for christmas this year though! Smiley

MY Grandma is so cool.
When I got off the phone with her, my husband said "Lulu Rocks"
Then he said "that should be a t shirt"
Now it is.
My first stencil
I know it isn't perfect, but she is. Smiley

type sewing tutorial into the search, and you will get tons of ideas. Just start making stuff and you will start learning. Make something every day, and in a couple months you will be amazed what you have learned.

They would make awesome earrings too : )

I actually have earrings I made that were sort of the inspiration for these.

I will see if I can get some pictures of those tomorrow! Smiley

I have used it to glue fabric together, and it worked out fine. It can get messy though, so I would suggest puting a little bit on to a hard flat surface (that you don't care about.. a tongue depressor?), and then using some sort of little tool to apply it. (a flathead screwdriver?) just because  rhinestones and whatnot are so small. Oh- also, I have not washed the fabric I glued yet, so I don't know how it will be in the wash, although I would guess just fine because that stff is crazy with the strength!! Smiley Have fun decorating your bag!!

Anyway, they're really wonderful!  Do you perhaps have them somewhere permanent on the web where I could link to them from my website???

Btw, since they have magnets behind/inside, what are they sticking to?... the mirror frame looks like wood in the photo.  Did you put a tack or something in the frame or just use some Blue Tac, etc.?


Yes I do have them someplace permanent, but I am a little embarrassed. It is my ever going wok in progress... Funkensteins.com straight to the magnet page:

The Magnets are on the outside, and the mirror is metal itself.
I will have more pictures of magnets on my website soon, probably on the same page as the monsters. I made a set last night with a flower and some bees. I will post it soon. (Its for somebodys birthday, so I have to wait... ) Anyway, I will add your website to my links page as well!

What I'm wanting to know is what you made them out of?
They are awesome!


Mostly polymer clay, but the lower one has lots of embellishments. Sorry they are hard to make out. He was really hard to photograph. If I have time, I will try to take some better pictures later this week
 His nose is a little red bead, his mouth is a row of beads. he has little feet that are thumb tacks. His antennas are some kind of earring wire or something.. and around his eyes are little jump rings! Smiley I love him. The other guy is a little too scary for me, but my son liked him, so ok. Smiley
After I made them, I couldn't go to sleep. I just kept thinking of all the great ones I could make for everyone. I want to make a set for my Moms birthday with cats or something that she would like.

Here are some fun guys I made last night.
I put them on the edge of a mirror for the picture, but they live on my fridge.
The fridge just wasn't fun enough.


Here are some bees I made:


I used 3/4" magnets, if you are curious about the approx. size

My Grandma always used old wooden spools attached to the wall as hooks for her purses. That may be cute. Smiley They would even be good for necklaces too!
The bobbins on the curtain sounds cute, if you used metal ones, they might be nice as trim on a lampshde too because they would play with the light a bit. Make sure to post a picture of the room when you are done! Sounds like fun!
