1  ASIA / Japan / Craftster in Tokyo? on: April 29, 2008 03:15:37 AM
So, I'm this 19-year-old Swedish girl who thought it would be a good Idea to go to Tokyo for three months to learn a bit of Japanese.  But I have found out that Tokyo is not at all as fun on your own as it could be with company. So if anyone esle needs someone to craft with or go shopping for fabric of maybe just have a coffee let me know Smiley

I'll be here untill July.

I know your out there!

So, I want to make a bag, and I need to buy leather (thin, brown, not huge amounts but a meter squared or so.) I have been looking around for a bit, but all in vain. Could someone help me? Anyone who knows where to find it? I'd be very thankful!

The actual rose is made from Sculpey clay. The necklace is copper wire braided with beads.

...but then I made this:

It is like a drawer that I keep in my bookshelf. The front matches the theme of my room, and makes it look really neat. It consists oc a frame with tulle as a net on one side, where I can hang my earrings, and hooks for necklases on the opposite side. It is really practical. I love it!
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / My black-and-white theme on: January 19, 2006 08:00:27 AM
I decided my room needed a makeover, but I didn't feel like making it a huge project, so I decided to keep the walls and floor and such as it was, and just spice it up a bit with little cool detail. Oh, and I've been obsessed with black and white lately   Grin

My doll, dressed up in polkadots, and with a rose in her hand. and yes, it is her in the picture too, on vacation  Cheesy

A mobile I made. It is really simple origami. I made the patterned paper too.

My clock

My lamp. Excuse the bad pic.

Lill' sweeties living in my bookcase. I found them in my brothers' rooms. Grin

Paintings I've done to match. And some pics of my dear friends. (They live in Madrid, whilst I live in Stockholm, so I don't get to see them too often)

I hope you like it!

6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Friends 18th birthday coming up... on: August 19, 2005 10:59:26 AM
One of my best friends is turning 18, and I need a special gift for her. She is always busy and into art (goes to artschool), vintage (as for clothing), music (pays in a band) and lives in her own house (although it's next to her parents). The gift has to be non-cheese and "worthy" - BUT I don't have a lot of time. Any ideas...?

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / "Newspaper" top on: April 24, 2005 12:51:46 AM
I found this fabric in the sales-pile once, and I absolutely loved it. It would be a bit too messy to make an entire top out of though, so I mixed it with some plain white fabric. It was a bit see-through, so There's a second layer of white fabric underneath. The back is all white. I made the pattern.

Thanks for all the credit! Cheesy
Making the pattern wasn't that hard at all, I just drew a plain top on a piece of paper, then got out a ruler and drew some lines across it. I decided what to make which colour and cut apart at the lines. I added seam allowance when transferring the pattern to the fabric. I sewed the front (the stripes) together first, and then added the extra layer and the back just like with any top. I might make a real tutorial if I have time.
Oh, and I found the fabric in the scrap-box at my local fabric store, so it was cheap too! Grin
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Felt flower pin on: April 23, 2005 05:57:09 AM
I'm really proud of this one!
The stammen and leaf are made from wire wrapped in green paper. The pins are saftypins tied to the wire by small pieces of string and covered in paper too. The flovers are felt, with seed beads in the middle.
