11  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Stamp swap results (pic very large) on: August 05, 2008 10:35:49 PM
So I did the handmade stamp swap...I've never worked with rubber before, so it was an experience!

This poor guy was supposed to be Pon, of Pon and Zi. Yeah. I didn't do so well.

I also did a couple lino cuts...of which I am way better at. Tongue

I was really happy with this one...I managed to get it down, even freehanding the image! Cheesy

12  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Japanese swimming.. on: June 26, 2008 10:21:02 PM
Okay, that's the title I used for my post on my blog...I am not up for two different clever titles in a day. Tongue So called because they came out ridiculously wide, for some reason, and they are my first foray into Japanese pattern books.

All the trials and tribulations posted on my blog....
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Geisha bag...sort of... on: February 24, 2007 02:37:57 AM
I made this bag for a Geisha swap. The main part is silk, the insert is vintage kimono silk, and the lining is a synthetic which happened to match perfectly! The pocket is like a little bag just attached at the sides.


14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Japanese notebook cover..thing...and Hello Kitty! on: February 24, 2007 02:24:25 AM
I made these following a Japanese pattern, with all the instructions in Japanese characters, and making up the measurements as I went along, so I am pretty damn proud of myself, lol! Grin

Also made a little wristlet with Hello Kitty!

Made them for a Japanese little present swap.
15  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Dragons and Geishas....trinket boxes on: February 24, 2007 02:13:16 AM
I made these for a few swaps. They are painted with acrylics and watercolor pencils, about 4x6x2. The geishas are lined with recycled Japanese silk paper, and the dragon is lined with Japanese rice paper. The green geisha is also bordered and embellished in silver foil. Outlined with permanent archive quality pen.

Whaddya think? Grin

16  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Japanese Flower Hairpins *Added different ones* on: February 17, 2007 05:31:15 AM
I made these for a swap, using a pattern out of one of those Japanese pattern books, and recycled Indian silk for the fabric. They came out GORGEOUS, in my not so humble opinion! Grin

Editing to add these ones I made awhile ago, which I forgot about:

Made from silk, and start out with a circle the same size as the others, but then gets folded and sewn and folded and sewn til it's this tiny little fiddly thing! Came from the same book as the ones above.
17  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Guess my favorite band! (slightly pic heavy) on: January 10, 2007 04:19:59 AM
Come on..it's pretty easy...Elephant and candy cane swirls?? Grin Grin

And while we are here, my daughter wanted a giraffe just like the ones I made for Roxybadoxy in a swap:

So I made her a similar one:

All credit for the patterns go to Marmota-b and her Grandma: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=120321.0

All comments welcome! Cheesy
18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / A cumulation of swaps (pic gargantuan!) on: December 28, 2006 04:02:35 AM
For some reason, I have been making a lot of bags for swaps, so I'll throw them all in here together, rather than making a post for each one. Grin

Big Asian tote bag:

I had the coolest Asian print scarf, all in my favorite colors, with a nubbly texture, with little gold accents, just waiting for the perfect project, and I found it here. The black was an unfinished pair of organic linen pants that a friend gave me..I guess she got sick of them before she ever completed them!

The inside is this rough textured red, yellow and orange striped material. The clasp is a huge Chinese cinnabar bead, about 1 1/2 inches across, to give you some perspective! Cheesy I just winged the pattern to fit the dimensions of the scarf.

Mock suede Shasha dream bag:

The outside is brown mock suede, with this olive green embroidered mock suede that I cut up and re-composed for better effect. The inside is the same red, orange and yellow stuff in the Asian bag. I like it a lot. Grin The clasp is also another red Cinnabar bead, in a different shape, obviously. This one is only 1" long.

Retro wristlet:

Pretty self evident. The inside is just plain orange, the same orange as the outside dots. I ended up having to handstitch around the pull end of the zipper, inside and out, cause I couldn't get my machine to do it smoothly. I think I did a good job, minus a little puckering, hardly visible. Grin

Princess Bride rules!

An inside joke for Princess Bride fans. Cheesy Made with a basic Jordy style, lined with a pirate-y red and white stripe. Hand painted the Jolly Roger and lettering and then protected with a vinyl cover. I was so busy trying not to immortalize any lint or fluff from my sewing area that I accidently immortalized the wrinkles.  Roll Eyes Whoops.

I also made a couple of simple little bags for a couple of my nieces:

Basic Jordy, with velveteen iron on images. Went over big! Grin
19  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / Glass etching cream in Sydney?? on: November 25, 2006 05:53:33 AM
Okay, I have been to Eckersley's, Lincraft, and hardware stores, and they all have looked at me like I was speaking Martian or something when I asked for glass etching cream! There has GOT to be some where I can get it here!! Somebody help, please!! Undecided
