from basically the same idea and just put bigger faceted beads at the junctures. it's a choker and  it's actually quite sparkly in person...

hey there--
thanks for the interest!  i was supposed to be pumping up the pbn empire this summer, but i totally slacked.  i do have some new ladies, though...

and my friend "lisette":

maybe i need the structure of going to work every day to make me do web design, i don't know!
anyway, i'd love to trade a canvas for a surprise...just send me your address and we can work something out.
thanks, again, for the kind comments.

153  Re: messenger bag with gusset tutorial in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by annette on: August 22, 2004 02:25:53 AM

just made this with nearly all free materials...the bag is denim free from scrap, the trim also from scrap, the velcro was in my toolbox from god-knows-what and the lining was leftover scrap.
i couldn't find my interfacing to save my life, so it's a little floppy, but the fabric is tough, so it's not too bad.  like a doe-head i sewed the flap inside the lining and had to take it out and redo it, but it's all pretty good for a first sincere effort.  i have more of all the fabric and trim and i think i'm going to make a full bookbag sized version tomorrow.  (this one has a copy of summerland in it, just so it can look legit.  Wink  i wanted to see how much it would flop and pull with weight in it and that was the fattest book i had on hand.)
fun stuff!

oh, that was my furry little head!  sorry--i totally spaced on writing a note or anything...
here was the head in its "natural environment":

still awaiting legs and then i'll post a picture of the new figure.
here's the new parts version, two shots to show off the amazing reversible torso--i LOVE all my parts, though i'm not sure they're ever going to really all hook up.  still, i like just having hot legs here, a great head there, etc.  i'm sure they will all find happy homes and the little bag and cat are just adorable.  thanks so much to everyone!

this is basically like a cyanotype and you can print out negatives on transparency sheets and use those to make contact prints...they are very cool.  or you can use sheet film, if you have a darkroom, but that's more of a big deal project.  anyway, you want the transparency to be fairly dense to get a clear image, so you might print out two and layer then on the sunprint sheet...or use regular black and white negatives for a sheet of small pictures in the middle of the collage of little bits...or stencils and such in combination with leaves and feathers and all sorts of things.  they are great fun.

(always love to show off a picture of my girl... Smiley )

156  kind of okay fingerweave scarf from tights in Knitting: Completed Projects by annette on: June 21, 2004 12:09:28 PM
i never went to camp, so this was my first fingerweaving project, at the ripe old age of 34.  i had a couple of pairs of cotton-wool tights that were too short and i decided to cut them up and try this after seeing the cute fingerweave bag on here.  it's a skinny scarf, but i like the texture of it...and it distracted me for a while from obsessing about a paper i'm writing.  i think next time i would probably make a little peg board instead of using my fingers and make it a little wider. 

okay, back to collection management hell...

157  Re: my filmstrip lampshade in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by annette on: June 18, 2004 09:00:30 PM
today i went to the ikea about bought about three lamps to work with--this is the first one and i think it came out really nicely--i'm just lucky that my estimation was so close to the fact and the filmstrips fit on the sides so well.  i think i might put a ring of black tape around the top and bottom to finish it--not sure yet--but here it is!  filmstrips on punctuation and health and nutrition.  Smiley  i made it for my friend ann for her birthday next week.  this one took only two hours, almost exactly!

ah!  thanks, melidomi!  i wouldn't have thought of that, but it makes sense that that would be a good teaching tool. 
not a great picture, but here's the underside, so you can see (maybe) where some of the connections are:

unfortunately my hands are a little shaky in the morning and the cam isn't that great at macro!  but i hope that helps a little bit.
ps--the little sort of tent-shaped triangles are the connection from the loop-around-the-loop to the next button.  otherwise, it pretty much does look the same...and that one weird little black button is only that color on the back.  Wink

159  Re: square bottomed lined bag tutorial in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by annette on: May 23, 2004 09:37:13 PM
here's a little bag i made for my friend peita's daughter, lucy.  i did her name in ribbon, sewn onto the little patch and i closed it with velcro... she's going to be 4...hopefully at that age they aren't very picky about the quality of my sewing! 
anyway, i thought it was cute--

here's the bag, though i messed it up a couple different ways.  i think i'll make another when i get around to buying some solid-colored fabric because i do like the basic idea of the bag and i love my little screen.

it's not too bad, just a little messy.
what's the deal with the stamp set, SarahFroggy?  i never bought that part because i never understood what it was meant to do--how it was different from the regular screen printing with the gocco...
