1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Doctor Who messenger bag on: January 25, 2016 01:41:17 PM
I haven't been on here in a really really really long time.  Haven't had time to get crafty and make anything until now.  I originally made this to carry my new tablet around so it's padded with foam.  I think I might make a new one thats not padded for everyday use. 

I want to make a new one with a zipper to close it inside and better snap on the outside.  Didn't think it was actually going to work so I used velcro instead and the snap on the outside was an afterthought.  I also want to change the writing on it.  I can't embroider so I painted it on.  Painting on felt is hard!  Maybe I'll use something other material for the black and white pieces so that I can paint the words better.  Either that or learn to embroider! 

Inside has a pocket.  Outside has a bigger pocket on the back.

I haven't made a bag in years so I'm pretty proud of this one even with all the things I want to change  Smiley
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / monster fur? on: November 13, 2009 06:42:43 PM
So, I've been promising my little cousins monster bags for nearly two years now.  I'm finally ready to make them and have red and pink fur.  But I also need either orange, purple, yellow, or navy blue fur for the third girl.  I can't find it anywhere!  My crappy walmart has like one aisle or crafts/sewing stuff now and joanns only has black, red, and white.  And I live in a small town with any other majors stores being at least 2 1/2 hours away Sad  Are there any places online that sell it reasonable prices?  I found one but it was over $20 for a yard!  I didn't pay anyway near that for the ones I have!
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / witch? on: October 10, 2009 10:29:44 AM
Ok, I'm sounding stupid here, but I think I want to dress as a witch for Halloween.  I've never been one before.  Been everything from rainbow brite to a clown to a hooker even (when I was like 11 - what was my mom thinking!), but I've never been anything scarrier thana zombie for a friends halloween haunted yard/house thingy.  I don't even want to be a scary witch ( I have a pretty religious family and wouldn't want to completely irritate them, plus I have a 6 year old son). 
 Every year since my son was born I have dressed in rennaissance dress mostly nice dresses, but a few times as the wench look too and I just want something a little different this year.
What do witches wear?  Is there a pattern/tutorial somewhere?  I've looked online and there are a few I like, but I don't want to buy them, I want to make one. 
Here are a few I like, just don't know how to go about making them or if they are even a good costume, right on track or completly out there and weird.
Also, I'm about 40-ish pounds overweight and live wear it can get super cold on Halloween so something warm is needed.

I know it's a child's but I think it's cute Smiley

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Diabetic Supply Cases ? on: November 23, 2008 06:57:08 PM
Has anyone here ever made a diabetic supply case?  My 10 year old cousin was just diagnosed with diabetes and she has a case to carry her supplies in, but my mom said she'd like something different.  I'd like to make her one for christmas, but don't really know where to start.
5  UNITED STATES / Michigan / Craft Fairs? on: January 11, 2008 06:59:40 PM
Does anyone have a list of craft fairs in Michigan?  I'd really like to start going to some, but don't know when any are or where.
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / hiding a very ugly wallpaper border? on: November 02, 2006 12:58:39 PM
Does any onoe have any ideas on how to hide a wallpaper border going around the entire room at the top of the walls?  We're renting and can't paint or take it down.  It's way too girly for me, roses, pink and other flowers and all.  And even though I'm a girl, it's just too much.  Plus it clashes with our bedding that is mostly dark navy blue with some yellow and white in it.  I need really cheap ideas since I pretty much have no or little money to put into it.  Plus, I need something that won't ruin the border or the walls.  Any ideas?
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / my mom's 50th bday is on Aug. 18 and I have no gift!!! on: August 15, 2006 09:03:59 PM
I have no clue what to get my mom for her birthday.  Her birthday is in a few days - August 18 !!   She will be 50  Shocked  .  I can't believe I forgot about it.  She really likes playingplaystation and psp and all that, and I suppose I could buy here a game or movie for those, but it just doesn't seem like a very good gift for her 50th.   Sad   I thought about making her a quillow because she "stole" the one I made for my grandpa, but I'm not sure I would have enough time.  She also likes painting and stuff like that.  She has very bad arthritis.  I honestly don't know what other stuff she likes. 
8  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / photography - my son - need opinion on: June 07, 2006 04:34:18 PM
Hi all, I love taking pics of my little guy and plan to get one I took the other day printed and put it in a nice fram and give it to my husband for fathers day, but I need help picking which version to use.  They are all the same pic, just different.

All Color:

All black & white ( not sure why it's spotty on here)

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / quilted patchwork purse on: May 20, 2006 03:51:32 PM
I saw a really pretty purse on Ebay that someone had made and I fell in love with it.  But, alas, it has already gone over what I could pay for it and still has 5 days left.   Sad  I'm cheap AND broke unfortunetly.  Unless I can sell something it's just not in my future  Cry   So, I did what I always try to do, make my own.  It didn't turn out quite like I wanted, but I think I'll make another and make it bigger and change the shape a little. 



INSIDE: ( I hate the way the lining turned out)


Oh, here's the link to the purse I want on Ebay:
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / making shirt smaller? on: May 09, 2006 02:35:55 PM
How would you bring in one of those shirts that nurses wear to make it smaller?  My brother-in-laws girfriend wants me to make it smaller, but not mess with the sleeves, plus there is a pocket there on the side too.  I'm clueless about this, but if I don't try I'll never hear the end of it.
