671  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Men's Ties / Neckties on: March 19, 2005 12:26:33 PM
Well I brainstormed awhile then read the thread and found all three of my ideas mentioned. I had thought a hat (beret style), enhancements on pillows (I thought on barrel pillows would be especially cute), and a snake (which I am definitely going to try for my daughter).

So - sorry nothing new...

I love the colors as it doesn't look like a standard diaper bag...I have a friend that I think of when I see this. I think the changing pad is an excellent touch. Memphis Mama has a great idea for soiild goods. Another idea because I used one lots is an insulated bag for carrying bottles. You could go a long way with this.

She has a sweet, almost 1960's look. Are you going to paint her - or how will you finish her?

Great bag! I love Van Gogh!! I wish your shots were clearer because this looks like it could stand closer inspection.

BTW was the piping hard to do? I've never done pipe...
677  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My First Jordy Bag - and fourth sewing project on new machine on: March 19, 2005 04:22:16 AM
I haven't sewn since high school fifteen years ago and now I am addicted. My husband will wish his Mom had never bought a sewing machine for me. And yes, I am old! Sad

The bag. I sewed on a freehand cut felt flower on with button for center. I wanted it to look whimsical and slightly amateur - sometimes I love it, sometimes I think it looks tacky.


Detail of the uneven (purposeful) stitches - do they work?

678  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Photo Canvas Transfers (image laden) on: March 19, 2005 04:11:51 AM
I wasn't sure if these should go in home decor or paper crafts and decided to put them here. These are digital images tranfered to canvas that I pretreated by painting and then distressed with sandpaper. Iron-transfered the image to the canvas (using regular t-shirt transfer paper) and then distressed some more.

I've got several variations on this technique one set I did on paper I made by hand which is  much more labor intensive. My scans of those are filed away. Will pull them up when I feel like digging through stacks of disks and post them too.

679  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: Polaroid Transfer Book on: March 19, 2005 03:53:06 AM
This has to be one of the most awesome things I've seen in a long time. I've been scrounging forever for the right Polaroid camera for transfers and they don't show up cheap often...this is similar to a book I am working on for my Mom but it will be much more general and use a digital transfer technique I developed.

What i really like is how you thematically created the pictures using hearts - it makes for a wonderfully personal and loving series...worthy of a gallery imo.

I do have an Polaroid old Land Camera and the negs from those can be cool and you just gave me a fab idea - could bind them like you did into a special book for my friend in Scotland.

Wow - you are the greatest...not only did you create something beautiful but you got my brain ticking on what to do - I love it when I am inspired

I wish we could make friends lists here - you would be on mine.

You did a great job giving it a cartoon feel - I imagine that those familiar with Final Fantasy will know exactly who he is...
