1  bunches of mini drawstring bags in various fabrics in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by paisley-sink on: July 15, 2008 03:45:51 PM
i had so much fun making these little drawstring bags. they are fully lined and have strings or ribbons for pulls. i made a bunch more matching ones that use as sand bags to weigh down my jewelry displays at craft shows, and they worked awesome!

Thanks for looking!

2  plaid madness! a laptop bag and a backpack in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by paisley-sink on: June 04, 2008 10:16:55 AM
so these are my latest large (no pattern) sewing creations modelled by assistant/ little sister.

the laptop bag was a huge dissapointment because of some short sightedness on my part. my laptop fit in it PERFECTLY until i sewed in the zipper (which is the kind that doesn't open at the end). and so just barely my laptop won't fit! i seriously almost cried because i was so pleased with the bag and didn't realize that it wouldn't fit until i finished. so now i need a new laptop to fit my bag  Grin  the bag took forever as it has many layers of fleece for super padding that were a huge pain to sew (especially the zipper)
on to the pics!

expandable pocket for my cords.. i made a mushroom button out of polymer clay and put on it but the stem of the mushroom later broke off  Sad

now for my plaid back pack, that took forever... i'm pretty happy with it but i really wished i had used interfacing its a bit to floppy/slouchy.

a bit to big for a second grader! (good thing its for me  Wink)

thanks for looking!

3  My bright purpley jacket in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by paisley-sink on: January 03, 2008 02:29:07 PM
So i made my first jacket a while ago but i just recently took pics of it. The bright crazy fabric is actually from a awesome skirt that i found at goodwill i bought it because i loved the pattern but it was quite unflattering as a skirt so now its part of my jacket. The solid purple sleeves and lining is from a sheet i had when i was little. the black fabric is from a knit shirt that i had. so it is all recycled materials! (except for the zipper)
 Smiley i was pretty pleased with it turned out, its one of the only sewing projects i've done that i have liked enough to wear out of the house haha


i accidently made the hood to small, so i added fabric and now its way to big, but i was to lazy to change it again.  Cheesy

4  Clay hairsticks in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by paisley-sink on: January 03, 2008 02:14:44 PM
here are some hairsticks i have that i didn't sell over the summer. i make alot of polyclay jewelry but for some reason i never take pics. i'm thinking i remember why though now that i've uploaded the pics. i can never take good close-ups the colors always come out strange, like in these they look bluish.
Oh well, i'm going to share them anyhow  Smiley

they are just clay covered wood kabob type sticks that i cut down to a good hairstick size.

i frequently do the little curly tops on the ends like in these on my hairsticks, do you guys have any suggestions for other cute ways to top them off?

thanks for looking  Smiley

5  Re: Dreadlocks in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by paisley-sink on: October 02, 2007 04:29:59 PM
i would like to say i feel some what guilty for almost never posting in this thread, i've been lurking in this thread since its early beginnings. so i thought i would post pictures of my long gone dreads.
i had them for about a year, i did a little backcombing to get them started but as you can see i wasn't big on the maintainence thing.
I loved my dreads but they just got out of control and were all stuck together. At one point i couldn't scratch they back of my head and had to have someone seperate them with scissors. Also, they were all thick at the bottom and skinny at the top because where my hair was bleached they dreaded up more. So anyway after i graduated I cut them til they were each about 5 inches long and then spent 3 days tediously combing out the hair i had left. but it worked out pretty good after i was done because since they were all about the same length from my head when i cut them, it gave my hair a kind of layered effect.
My hair is MUCH thinner than it was before i dreaded my hair, which i attribute most of that loss to the combing out process i wish i could show you the trash bag full of hair i had after i finished Grin but i have been dreadless for about 4 months now and my hair seems to be making a comeback so i'm happy.
Once my hair grows out a bit i will be starting the dread process over again, this time i plan to take a little bit better care of them in their beginning stages.  Smiley

And that is the story of my dreads!
on to the pics!

my fattest dreadies:

Thanks for looking!
I love seeing pictures of you're alls beautiful dreadies!

6  colorful wallet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by paisley-sink on: October 20, 2006 11:32:27 AM
so i made this wallet a little while ago from a tutorial posted on here, i can't remember which one but i'm sure it would be easy to find thanks to the new awesome tutorial lists! i got this awesome canvasy fabric at a yard sale so i didn't back the fabric with anything to make it stiffer.

my wallet has been getting good use!

thanks! comments appreciated!
