1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Braggin' on my C-ster girls!! on: September 19, 2017 01:33:05 PM
You guys are AMAZING! Yep, totally, totally the bomb! (Do people still say "the bomb"? Too bad, I guess, coz I just said it!)

My DIL Chr1stChan and I are working with the TLC women's shelter here in our hometown. And when my fellow Craftsters heard that we could use a little help, they started coming through in spades!  Check this out SO FAR (I know that more pouches have been made and are on their way, so you'll see additions to this post in the future):

So here are the thankyou's so far:

To my bestie Gozer, who sent 35 zippers - In spite of some major health challenges, you stepped up to the plate and thought of others, when it would be so much easier to just focus on what you've got to deal with at the moment. You're truly the best and I love ya!

To Noxica, who sent 23 zippers and zipper tape with 12 pulls - shipping from Australia?!?!? Holy moly, that's commitment and you ROCK!

To TheMistressT, who sent 14 zippers - you've been evacuated and dealing with wildfires and firefighters all summer, but STILL took the time to help! HUGE hugs to you!

To Lovely Miss, who sent 16 completed pouches - with every other plate you keep spinning both on Craftster and elsewhere, I'm so thrilled that you would take the time to help out! You are awesome!

To AlwaysInMyRoom, who sent 10 completed pouches - you're another lady who always drops everything to help souls in need! You have one of the biggest hearts on C-ster! Thank you!

Our goal was 65 pouches for the ladies in the shelter. So far we have 34 completed pouches and enough zippers to make 84 MORE!

THERE IS STILL GOOD IN THE WORLD and Craftster members make up a big ol' slice of it!

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Days for Girls ROCKS!! And so does Craftster!! on: September 13, 2017 11:10:50 AM
Hey, guys, this is more of a shout out to my fellow Craftsters than an actual project, although I did help sew lots of drawstring bags. I wanted y'all to be able to see it, so I put it here. Hope that's ok, mods!

I was blessed to be able to participate last week in doTerra's successful attempt to set a world record of Days for Girls kits assembled in one hour (that's assembled- not sewn. The sewing- which was the part I helped with- was all done before the attempt). And we did it! The record is now 5110 kits! So awesome!  Anyway, as I was sewing and threading ribbons, Celeste Mergens (the founder of DfG) came in to talk to us!!  I got to meet her and told her about how the fantastic and generous souls on Craftster were my first introduction to her program and that so many of you have given of your time and means and talents to help girls globally!

She asked me to pass on her most sincere thanks for all that you have done and continue to do!

CRAFTSERS ARE AMAZING! Honestly, you all are some of the most loving and giving folks I've ever had the pleasure to be associated with!!

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Zippered pouches for charity on: August 28, 2017 08:57:56 AM
My DIL started working with a women's shelter because of GISHWHES! It's really rewarding to be helping them out in conjunction with local food vendors. We take a delivery to them every Thursday, and we just love doing it!  There are 64 ladies in the shelter, and they don't have much. Many of them show up with the clothes on their back. They are in great need of personal care items, which we have been trying to round up for them.

In the meantime, I'm working on making these zippered pouches, and possibly some drawstring bags for them to put some of their personal items into. If any of you lovely crafters out there would like to donate zippers, or completed bags, send me a PM! We'd love the help! Here are the bags I've done so far:

I found the tutorial for them on here years ago, but have no idea where, so here's a link to instructions that I posted in the Nerd Games thread:

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Chunky butterfly necklace on: August 15, 2017 11:13:28 AM
I was able to use some one-of-a-kind beads from my stash to complete this eclectic piece.

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Modern Vintage necklace on: August 15, 2017 11:11:12 AM
I attempted classic with a modern twist, here. Hopefully I succeeded! My partner seems to like it, anyway.

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Scarab pendant on: August 15, 2017 11:09:39 AM
I made this for the necklace swap, and I was very happy with how it turned out. The wire work is new to me, so I was quite pleased that it looks like something other than a lump of twisted metal.

7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Tribal necklace on: August 11, 2017 04:34:32 PM
I made this for mandykaye in the necklace swap, and now that she has received it, I can post it!  This required a couple of trips back to the drawing board, but in the end I liked how it turned out. Best of all, all the materials were from my stash! Yay!

8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Fandom Mashup tee on: June 13, 2017 01:23:40 PM
Again, another swap item for the Random Fandoms swap. I will definitely be doing another round of this one later, it was way too fun!

This was for pottermouth, and mashed her fandoms of Halloween and Jane Austen:

The witch was painted on freehand, and the letters were stenciled.

Thanks for looking!
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Fandom Mashup apron on: June 13, 2017 01:20:32 PM
I'm not sure if this belongs in this thread, if not, my apologies to our good Lady Moderators...

I made this apron for pottermouth in the Random Fandoms swap. It was so much fun, getting wildly creative with each others' fandoms- there are, indeed, some amazing things in the gallery, if you feel so inclined to check it out.

Anyway, this apron combines pottermouth's love of Monty Python, Harry Potter, and leprechauns. How on earth do you combine those, you may ask...

Well, this might be one way:
