Thanks, chocolatejellybean!  Here's a pic of the back.  Not too much fabric overlaps in the back, but just enough so that you can't see any frays around the edges.

And I use an exacto knife to cut tiny slits into the screw holes (that sounds so dirty!) and I poke the fabric through with the tip of a pen.  Since it has some adhesive on those little bits too, they stick nicely to the holes in the plate.

12  Switch plate delight in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by bubba*tink on: May 19, 2007 07:49:46 AM
Hallo!  I made these for a craft show coming up in June.  I picked out some swanky fabrics and cut the shapes out and used spray adhesive to stick them on the plates.  Then I cut slits in the holes and folded the edges in so that it had a nice finish to it.  I then brushed mod-podge over it all for a glossy finish.  Ah luvs them!  Now to convince the hubby to do it to all our switchplates!

The first one I added some puffy paint to some of the flowers.  The last one I spray mounted some a felt bird and felt plant to the front.  With the mod-podge it has a great hard-spongy kind of feeling.

These are just fabric covered.  I liked them the way they are, they're busy enough I think.  The apples one is very thin jersey fabric, so the glue kind of seeped through in bits and you can see splotchy bits.  Oh well!

thanks for looking!!

HOLY CRAP, what frikken excellent doodling!  Playswithfire, you've got marvy talent...

My doodling sucks, but the background story of my sketch book is interesting so that's why I'm sharing today.

My family and I took a road trip to Austria when I was about 13 or 14.  When we stopped in a little town to eat at a restaurant, I saw this cool chinese fabric-covered book on the curb, right next to a bag of trash.  I was really shy about picking it up, but I knew if I didn't pick it up I would've regretted it forever.  (how dramatic...)  Well, it turned out to be a girl's journal!  Unfortunately it was written in German and I don't speak a word.  My Austrian friend translated some of it, but it was so long ago that I don't remember what it says.

I wanted to keep the book forever, but I didn't want it to be useless.  So I decided to sketch on random pieces of paper and stick them in the book.  For the random paper I "doodled" on, I cut up some photocopies that my English teacher handed out with passages of some fabulous books.  It feels nice to recycle two things that meant so much to me!

Anyway, on with the crap doodles!  This is the first sketch I did during my sewing class in '98.  I was obsessed with the '10s and '20s.  I made this dress too, but it wasn't as cool as I would've liked.  The fabric was too thick, not light and airy. POO!

I had a theme of "Simplicity to Absurdity", taking overly ornate costumes from throughout history, and mixing in overly simple aspects to them.  I never made any of them, it was just an idea I had to explore.

14  Red n Blue fold-over bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by bubba*tink on: May 08, 2007 05:18:00 PM
Hallo!  I was rushing to make a red purse for my hubby's cousin's wedding, and I have this cool-ass bag on my wists and wanted to copy it:


So I made this one!  It's red corduroy and blue chintz.  I love the strap too, I put snaps on the ends so that you can remove it, although I don't like clutches so the strap is essential for moi.

yey bags!  It's pretty small, but it fits my keys, camera, lip balm, eye drops, mini harmonica, and my little solid perfume.  Hurrah!

15  Is the skully dead yet? Not yet!! Two skully purses! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by bubba*tink on: April 25, 2007 04:00:59 PM
heh?  Oh well.  Here are two skully purses I made!  One was for a swap for Jonnamarco, and the black and white one was a custom order for ChloeisCrazy.  Ah luvs them!!  I still have to make myself one...

Most of the fabrics used to make the skull came from the stash my grandma left me.

The skull fabric is this really cool linen-type fabric that's got a nice texture to it, and the bow is red thin corduroy.

I ironed on some interfacing on the fabric and cut the shapes out, then spray-adhesived the shapes onto the purse so that they wouldn't move when I appliqued them on.  It was so much fun making these!!

16  Puffy bum'd leprechaun (aka, a skirt n a shirt) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by bubba*tink on: April 21, 2007 07:50:24 PM
Hallo!  I've been taking some time off from craftster (naughty naughty) and haven't really posted anything recently, so thought I'd post some pics of a skirt and shirt I made a few months ago!

das skirt is somewhat puffy and very flowery.

details of the straps on the shirt and the sleeves:

I originally made these for a wedding, spent the eleventh hour finishing things up and everything, but realised that it wasn't posh enough...well poo.  I love the skirt so much!  I'd wear the shirt more often but I made it from some kind of synthetic fabric and it gets really hot...What do you guys think?

How beautiful everyone's eggs are!!  I tried too, but with an egg dyeing kit that my hubby and I bought five years ago.  I love the results!!  And it was so much fun!  We had a friend come over too, but I wasn't able to take pics of her eggs.

I made three more, but they kinda suck, so I left them out... Grin

It's a traditional Japanese koi swimming up his arm, and chrysanthemum on his chest.  It's so beautiful!!

and here are some videos of him getting inked:
