11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Long Leaf necklace on: October 03, 2005 10:03:09 AM
I thought I'd try my hand at the ever-popular "long loopy necklace".  This is the result:

12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Wave o' Babies (Teen Girl Squad) messanger bag on: September 04, 2005 08:46:40 PM
I decided over the summer that I needed something bigger than a purse, but smaller than a backpack.  I settled on a cheap (clearly) Dollar Store messanger bag.  But it was missing something....

Enter, the Teen Girl Squad and a Sharpie!

I was inspired by this shirt: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=23403.0

But being without the money for iron on transfer paper, and learning somewhere on here that Sharpie and crayon can be set with an iron, I took my mom's light box and a print out of the pic and went to work tracing!

13  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Sci-Fi Greg tee... first attempt! on: September 04, 2005 08:37:29 PM
So I wandered onto the lovely stenciling board one day, saw how cool it was and how many possibilities were now spread open before me, and I just had to try it.  But what to stencil....?  Enter the wonders of homestarrunner.com and the ever fabulous Teen Girl Squad.  Add the fact that my boyfriend is a nerd, and we get the following:

That's right, my boyfriend is now in possession of his very own Sci-Fi Greg stenciled t-shirt.  Which he has indeed worn in public.   Smiley

(A slight explanation of Sci-Fi Greg:  http://homestarrunner.com/tgs9.html  When it says "it's over!", click the 'o'.)

14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Vintage Crewel Bag on: August 18, 2005 09:57:14 AM
Earlier this summer I decided that I wanted to try out crewel embroidery.  So I found a cute little kit at the Salvation Army and proceeded to make it.  When I was finished, I thought "Well that's nice.  Now what?"  So I decided to turn it into a purse, which, btw, I'm rather proud of.

It's lined and closes with a snap.

I was going to keep it, but then I decided that I don't need another bag, and I have to support my crafting habit somehow.   Cry   I will miss it.
15  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Teen Girl Squad!!! on: July 04, 2005 06:37:52 PM
No, your eyes do not deceive you.  You are looking at Teen Girl Squad tea towels.  I've been very interested in embroidery lately (mostly as a way to justify watching television), and this is my first real project.  Ta da!

(For those of you who are completely lost, the Teen Girl Squad can be found at http://homestarrunner.com/tgsmenu.html)
16  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Bertie Botts "costume" on: July 04, 2005 06:23:34 PM
As one can plainly see, this is actually a red t-shirt that has been cut up and painted on, but when I go to my local Barnes & Noble Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince release party a couple weeks from now, it will most definitely be my Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans costume.  Because let's face it, I'm 20 years old, and dressing up in a black robe and carrying a wand just ain't doing it for me anymore. 

I cut off the sleeves, collar, and hem.  Then I cut holes in around the neck and strung gold ribbon through them to make a drawstring.  The bottom was fringed and gold beads added.  The design is just fabric paint that I freehanded (!!!  -- I cannot draw at all, and it's a miracle that it turned out so well).

I am so ready for this party, and I solemnly swear that I am up to no good!

(PS - Last HP book release costume: https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=15980&sort=1&cat=500&page=1, https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=15979&sort=1&size=medium&cat=500&page=1
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Tablecloth Petticoat on: July 04, 2005 06:00:27 PM
So I have this friend.  She only wears skirts.  Seriously.  I've seen her in pants once.  And in the winter, she gets the biggest kick out of wearing a petticoat (that she made) under her skirts (that she made).  She says it makes her feel pretty and feminine.  Well, I've been wearing skirts more often myself, and when I saw this white circular tablecloth at a garage sale for 50 cents, I thought it looked like it should be a petticoat, and that maybe I should see what this whole petticoat thing is all about. 

It has a zipper and biased tape for the waistband.  The trim was already on the bottom.  As you can see here, it has a band all the way around 5 inches from the bottom.  I love the way it looks, but it's there because it was too long at first.  :-)

I've worn it under a demin skirt (my first sewing project from a pattern that I ever completed).  And it's true!  It makes me feel lovely and feminine, and I just want to walk around in it all day long!  :-)
18  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / records and magnetic poety on: June 12, 2005 06:31:35 PM
I made this stuff for my brother's upcoming birthday.  First, a record cup, good for holding pens and/or toothbrushes.

Also, a flat tin (actually an old AOL CD tin) painted and covered with a Taylor wine ad from an old Life magazine I have (our last name is Taylor).  It's filled with homemade magnetic poetry.

Hopefully he'll like this stuff and not think that I'm crazy!   Shocked

19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / From $1 tablecloth to circle skirt on: June 12, 2005 06:02:58 PM
My first picture post!   Grin  Just a few hours ago this was a happy $1 flea market tablecloth.  It's much happier now that it's my new skirt.  It kinda makes me wanna go polka dancing.

It was just a round tablecloth, and that crazy trim was already on the bottom.  It was just screaming "Turn me into a skirt!  Please!!!"

I had been wanting to make a circle skirt from the tutoral I found here at Craftster, but I hadn't found the right bedsheet.  But silly me, I was fated to find a tablecloth instead.  Shows what I know!   Roll Eyes
20  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Desk-less Drawer on: May 25, 2005 03:15:19 PM
So, I found this drawer.  It's a great drawer.  Plain, wooden, sturdy.  About 20" long, 10" across, 8" deep.  I was thinking I could use it to keep stuff under my bed, but does anyone have any other ideas?  Ideas for potential decorations would also be appreciated (though it's pretty cool the way it is).
