1  Camera Strap ideas? in Discussion and Questions by wickedlady on: October 15, 2005 12:18:14 PM
Hello everyone!

I am really in need of a couple of cool camera straps. I looked on ebay for those old hippy ones but there arent many and they are usually old and yucky or expensive... So I have decided to make my own. I did a search on ebay and see some nifty vintage trims and stuff. I figure I could just buy a few yards od something and sew it to a backing of black velvet but I would like to make them adjustable and use pretty much the same hardware as the vintage ones. Does anyone know where to get stuff like that? like the buckles? Any other ideas for the design? I did a search in the crafster archives and was surprised to see there was only ever one post and all the replies recommended knitting the strap but i dont want to do that.

Anyway, thanks for your help!
I'll post an example of a hippy strap too...

2  Dene style mocassins in Shoes: Completed Projects by wickedlady on: September 25, 2005 01:21:10 AM
It took me 2 years but I finally got my butt in gear and finnished this pair of mocassins for myself. You know how it is when you are making so many things for OTHER people anything for yourself gets put  on the back burner...

The Dene people live up in the North in Canada where I live. These are typical of their stlye of mocassin making.
The uppers are fully beaded with seed beads. Soles are brain-tanned moose hide and tops are trimmed in beaver fur. They are very warm and soft. These are my 6th pair in 6 years, but all other ones besides the first were for relatives. I keep meaning to make a tutorial but I am bad and always forget...

I absolutly love beading. It's almost like painting but it takes way longer. I think maybe it feels more satisfying/rewarding when I actually finish a project because it takes so much patience. And its art you can wear!

Made this one for my mom for her birthday using even smaller beads. They take longer to sew with but turn out way nicer. Sorry still no tut...

Here are the mocassin uppers I am working on for myself now, one completed  one in progress.

I was thinking I could attempt to make a photographic tutorial on how to bead for those of you who want to learn. Don't know if it will work but I'll try!

This tutorial was the first thread i read on this site last week. It inspired me to get out my new sewing machine which was already gathering dust from  not being used since christmas. I thought it was a cat though, not a monster...oops! He turned out really warped because i used  cheap fleece and ended up having weird little peg legs so i put leg warmers on him with some yarn scraps.
