1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Band Tee to Zipper Pouch on: July 26, 2015 11:36:41 AM
I got a few Hawk Nelson t-shirts for Christmas a few years back, but they were a bit too tight and never really fit well. However, I really liked the designs and didnt want to just get rid of them. I decided that turning them into zipper pouches would be a great way to keep them and get them out of the closet.

I forgot to take a before photo before I began cutting up the shirt, but this is the design on the first shirt.

I was able to cut two 9x7 rectangles out of the tee. I also found some light pink fabric for the pouch lining.

Aaaaaand here is the finished zipper pouch!

I was a bit worried that the large words would get cut off by the side seams, but they stayed pretty well centered.  I have another HN shirt that Im hoping to get two pouches out of Hopefully theyll turn out as well as this one did!
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Tiny Chalkboard Trinket Boxes on: July 17, 2015 05:21:07 PM
These smaller boxes were stained with a steel wool & vinegar stain, and the inside lid was painted with Martha Stewart chalkboard paint like I did  with the larger box. (Also on Craftster: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=440019.0)

(Also not sure why my photos are sideways... They're all rightside up on my computer.)

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Stained Chalkboard Trinket Box on: July 16, 2015 03:25:05 PM
I made this cute little box inspired by one I pinned a while back. (https://www.pinterest.com/pin/188025353168293320/) I couldn't find the site the original project was on. It seems as though it doesn't exists anymore; the pin just links to a site that lets you buy the old domain name.

The box was a plain one like you'd find in the wood section of a craft store, stained it with a steel wool & vinegar mix.

The inside lid is painted with Martha Stewart chalkboard paint.

To keep the lid from falling back when the box was opened, I added an old drawstring (from a pair of shorts, maybe). After cutting it to size, I attached it to the box with thumbtacks.

And a few detail shots...

The stain aged the hardware a bit, which I thought was really cool.
