1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / dino love stencil shirt! (our first stencil ever, don't be mean) on: August 04, 2005 01:39:22 AM
I think we found this stencil on craftster. I'm not sure. Anyway, here's the shirt.

The shirt.

A close up of the dino.

My friend and I have been making them. Because they rockzors?
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / build my self confidence by clicking here (tube top, tie, square skirt) on: July 18, 2005 11:17:25 PM
I was over at my friend's house after spending a little time at our local fabric store. We had fun. My friend is modeling.

Please excuse the bra straps, my friend could not find her strapless bra.



Tie. Gold. AWESOME.

Square skirt with cool belt.
It's too short to be worn without pants or tights.

Thanks for looking.

This may sounds stupid, but how in the world do you attach grommets?

Okay, I am an big funky earring junkie, and I have so many things I wanna make earrings out of.

This is gonna sound stupid, but where do you get the hooks for them?
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / swimsuit --> bag on: June 09, 2005 03:47:56 PM
Old skirt that came with an old swimsuit. Sewed up the bottom, added some handles, and voila! A simple, but cute purse.




6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Broadway Musical Cylinder Bag on: June 08, 2005 07:15:54 PM
After I made my bubble wrap bag, https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=38501.0, I had a cardboard cylinder left that the bubble wrap had been wrapped around. So I gathered up a bunch of flyers from musicals I've been in and hot glued them to the cylinder. I lined it on the inside with flyers too. A strip of black cloth from a t-shirt is the strap. I'm not great at making purses, but I kinda like this. Sorry for the blurriness (I'm using a webcam) and the glare (the flyers are shiny).


The purse.




The inside.

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / bubble wrap purse on: June 07, 2005 04:57:05 PM
This is probably the easiest purse ever to make, though it's not for holding heavy stuff (though it withstood more than I expected.)



Just take a sheet of bubble wrap (you should probably have the actual bubbles on the inside so people don't come up and pop em) and fold it in half. Hot glue the sides together (inside out, just as if you're sewing.) Turn it back right side out. Cut two bubble strips and hot glue them to the inside for straps. It took me less than five minutes.
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Life cereal box purse on: June 07, 2005 04:26:30 PM
I got the idea from my friend and her Capn Crunch purse,
( https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=38359.0 )
so I decided to make one of my own. This is my first project, though, so don't laugh. Oh and sorry for the blurriness of the pics. I was using a webcam.


Front again


That's the ID sleeve I glued into it.

An extra pocket with a tiny snap closure.

All I did was cut the top off a cereal box (now that think about it, I could've used the reclosable top...ah well). Sewing was REALLY hard through cardboard so I hot glued the fabric into the box, leaving a little left for a rim around the top of the outside. I cut out a few strips of fabric, same length, and glued and stapled them one on top of the other for extra strength. I hot glued AND stapled the straps to the inside edges of the box. This way, they won't fall off. I cut another small square of fabric and glued it to the inside for a pocket. I cut out a small rectangle for the flap of the pocket. I sewed on a small snap. I cut out a piece of plastic and hot glued it to the other side of the inside for an ID sleeve. Finally, I reinforced the bottom flaps with hot glue to be sure they wouldn't break when I put stuff in them. You may also want to staple these.
