1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Portal Nook Sleeve on: September 21, 2011 01:23:06 PM
I made my boyfriend a Portal themed Nook case by following this tutorial: http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2009/05/elizabeths-fabric-focus-5/

I left the flap off because I'd already cut out the design and a flap would have covered up part of it. The Nook just barely fits, so it really doesn't need a flap! It stays in all on its own.

@Mindle83--I agree with elderflower! I think it looks awesome on you. To me, this style works for a lot of people because it's cinched just under the bust and I think that's flattering on a lot of shapes.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Super Easy Skirt Draping Recon on: August 25, 2011 09:48:27 PM
Inspired by a skirt I got off eBay, I did this really easy recon on this skirt I've had for a while. All I did was sew ribbon ties on the inside seams. I can untie them and wear the skirt straight if I ever felt like it, but I prefer it puffy at the moment.


Before, for reference:

I love it now! But it reminds me of lettuce... I might RIT dye it a little darker so I don't feel so much like produce when I wear it.

I was so excited when I saw the thumbnail for this project--Eevee is my favorite pokemon! You did such a great job.

This dress has been on my to do list ever since I saw this one a few years back: http://www.outsapop.com/2009/06/diy-one-seam-t-shirt-dress.html

Thanks for the tutorial!

Great bag! What size did you make the pattern for the messenger style one? I found the original and was thinking of making it bigger but I can't figure out how to. Thanks.

Thanks--I think I just did a lot of trial and error--I cut the big rectangular panels to the size I wanted and just measured around the perimeter to get the length of fabric I would need for the sides.

Great job, they look great! Was it hard to do the painting? I always wanted to try some painting too but I thought maybe it doesn't worth the time

It was completely easy--I just put the canvas in my front yard and threw paint at it.  Smiley

Thanks everyone--

were did you get those charms

I got the charms from a local bead store--if you're ever in Boone, NC, stop by the Bead Box downtown... it's really an amazing shop.
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Funky earrings--astronaut, octopus, and watch pieces on: November 19, 2008 06:20:27 PM
These were made with octopus charms from a local bead shop, caned glass beads I received in a swap, and findings I already had.  I wanted them really dangly, but I'm starting to think they're too dangly.

It's scarf weather now and these earrings slightly impede the scarf wearing process.

I made these to unwind from a stressful day... which happened to be a mistake.  Some of the watch pieces were so tiny that I couldn't get the gap in the jump rings to close enough.  I even had some parts fall off the next day when I wore them, but I added more when I got back to my dorm.

It feels a little like cheating to say that I made these because they were so simple--just astronaut charms attached to fish hooks with jump rings.

Love!  I actually have this book--did you use the recommended yarn?
