1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / A KICK @$$ NEW CREDIT CARD HOLDER/MINI WALLET on: August 04, 2005 12:20:59 PM
I just LOVE how this turned out!  OK. The ribbon snap thingy could have been centered a bit better, but all in all a success!
I took 4 kinds of ribbon and wove them together.  Then I ironed on some fusible interfacing onto the back to hold it together while I sewed the ribbons for extra stability.  That gave me a really cute looking "ribbon cloth".  I made it into this:  (It's alot brighter in real life.)

Front - closed


The back - open.

2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / HELP! Why doesn't my site come up when I do a search? on: July 26, 2005 06:41:53 PM
 I just finished putting a website together using Freeservers.com (Yes, it's really generic but it is my first try at a website.) and if I type the address in it comes up just fine, but if I try doing a search it just won't come up.  Does anyone know why this might be happening?  Here's the site:  http://norahnadine.4t.com

3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / A pirate t-shirt! on: July 08, 2005 04:45:22 PM
Hi everyone!
I have a friend who is moving away to live on a sailboat in the US Virgin Islands!  I made this t-shirt as a going away present!

The front.  It is hard to read in this photo but it says "Got Rum?"  (We all love Captain Morgan's and Diet Coke!)

The back.  I fouled up the middle of the A but it gives it character right?!    Grin
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / New green bag! on: July 08, 2005 04:37:56 PM
Two very good friends of mine are moving away to live on a sailboat.  I made this as a going away present for one of them.

My friend is Irish and she loves green!

I added 3 pockets.

I sewed in a clear vinyl pocket and put in a photo of all of us taken  last New Years.

I also stenciled a pirate t-shirt for her husband.  I'll post a photo of it in the stencil forum!
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My first Jordy bags! on: June 29, 2005 07:26:48 AM
Hi everyone!  This is my first post so I hope I get it right.  I made these bags on Sunday and I really like how they turned out!  Smiley (Thanks Jordy!!!) Smiley   The pink one has 6 pockets on the outside.  The green one doesn't have any pockets.  I gave the green one to my sister and she suggested I make more and try selling them on e-bay.  I need your advice on that.  Do you think they are good enough to try to sell?  Also, what do you think I should ask for?  Thanks!

I put heavy interfacing on both the outside and on the lining so it holds it's shape.

I also put it in the handles and an extra 2 layers on the bottom so it is nice and stiff.

 I double stitched all the seams so they should be fairly sturdy.
