2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Long time, no post! Necklaces and a couple earrings. Img Fatty. on: May 21, 2008 01:37:50 AM
So, it's probably been well over a year since I have last posted anywhere on craftster! After moving, schooling, working, moving again, medical stuffs, and surgery, it's been a long year.

Either way, here are some recent workings!

Seahorse, Owl and Birds on the branch are all pendants I had bought and then embellished myself. Such as the eyes and the eggs.

A wire-wrap necklace I did a while back:

Some pretty simple stud earrings:

Posting some new cards I made over in the Paper Craft section as well. :-)

3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Chains and rhinestones, baby! New earrings on: September 15, 2006 06:28:06 PM
I made some new earrings for a boutique and came home and made some more!
Now I'm curious as to how much I should charge in my own shops... Any suggestions?

This one is just a bunch of different chain.

This one is different chains and rhinestone chain.

Same idea as the previous, only with pink chain instead of black.

Two kinds of chain, five strainds, three with beads at the end.

This just shows the different kinds of chain I use...

I tried to look around the net and etsy for similar items to try and get a ballpark price, but there really isn't anything I found that are similar. Most others have more beads and less chain.

Anyhoo.. let me know what you think! :] They are all really long too, which I love, and they are not heavy! YAY! Really, they are long though, about 4 inches. They touch my shoulders :]
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Fabric Necklace - with tutorial! on: June 20, 2006 07:34:11 PM
I've seen this type of necklace SOMEWHERE on the internet, but just do not remember where, or else I would give them credit or inspiration points or something :/ It was at someones online store...

Since then, I have been wanting to make one of these - and that has been a while. After a lovely 8 hour work day, I came home and finally made one.



It's out of some blue leopard print fabric I got on sale the other day at work (Joann Fabric) :]

Let me know if you want more pictures or a tut!

EDITTED. Here's the tut for the necklace!  :] Hope you like! Post pictures of your necklaces, I'd love to see them!

pppolaroids pretty much got it :]

Anyhoo - Here's the tut still!

-1 45inch or longer piece of 3 inch wide fabric. (Knotting takes a lot of fabric. My final size was about 15 inches.. At least double the size you want the final to be.)
-Some ribbion (at least half a yard)
-Pompoms (or marbles, woodbeads, cotton balls, wool, whatever you want to make the "beads" out of! I used little craft pompoms)
-Sewing machine/needle and thread


Step number 1;
Take your piece of fabric and fold inh half, right sides together. Sew a seam down the entire piece so you have about a 1 inch tube.


Step number 2;
Turn inside out.


Step number 3;
Knot one side about 2 inches from the end.


Step number 4;
Time to add your "beads"! I used two little craft pompoms (one wasn't enough!) I'm sure you can use marbles, wooden beads, cotton balls, whatever you can instead.


Step number 4;
Knot on the other side of the new "bead"


Step number 5;
Keep going til your all the way done! Make sure your two ends have the same amount of left over fabric!


Step number 6;
Cut your ribbion into two equal lengths, however long you want. I made mine about 9 inches long, long enough so I could tie them into a bow on my neck. Then, fold the ribbion inside the ends of the necklace.


Step number 7;
Sew over the ribbion and fabric.


Step number 8;
Show off to all your friends what Monique just showed you how to make; one awesome necklace (and super lightweight!)

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Dinosaur earrings and more -Kinda sorta image heavy- on: May 29, 2006 09:31:25 PM
Here are some earrings I've made recently. I sell all on my myspace as part of my clothing line, BTW :]

I really like the dinos. So do lots of other people!
Made from just plain buttons on sale at Joann.

Dinos on one of my business cards...

The rest of the dinos I offer...

Sorry for the blurry picture :[

More plain ol' button studs...

Comments, anyone?? :]
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I've been busssyyyy.... on: February 27, 2006 10:02:46 PM
Well, I finally did it. I finally started my own 'clothing line'.

Okay, I don't think you'd actually call it that, but a friend and I did join up and start selling our designs. On myspace and in person. Haha. WHatever works, right?

Anyways. Here's a bunch of pictures of some of the stuff I've done as of lately...

THese are from a tutorial I got on here.. came out pretty nice.. I would post which one I got it from, but I forgot and just winged it off memory.. Thank you to whoever did it though!!

Again, another idea from here. Again, I forgot the link. But it's the asymetrical corset style shirt.

Haha... so now.. for some horrible shame-less self promotion...
You can find most of these (some are already sold) at
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Giganto purse. (Thank you mgenevieve) on: January 08, 2006 10:13:52 PM
Found a tote by mgenevieve here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=49030.0 and I bought some fabric today that I needed to do something with. :]

Thus.. I made this huge purse. I love it. I wanted a really big purse for a long time now.. And I fell in love with the print..




I got the fabric as a remnant for $1.50 and the straps on sale for $3. Not to mention I get 15% off at Joanns for working there.. so this was a fairly cheap bag to make... I'm thinking of buying some lining to put in it, but I really dont' need to unless I want a pocket inside or something... :]
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Sweatpants to hot pencil skirt. [Image heavy!] on: December 12, 2005 02:35:41 PM
I don't even know how this turned out as well as it did. When I started I had just a pair of baby blue, baggy, too-short sweatpants. I was inspired by a skirt I saw on etsy.com by http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=7087. Anyways, cut up the pants, cut up some scraps, and made myself a pencil skirt!

P.S. Sorry about the horrible photo quality.. For some reason my digi is being poopy.. :[

Me wearing it..
Close up..
Super close up..
My floor wearing it..

Next time I made this however, I'm going to add a zipper. :/ Haha, I didn't have any around and I didn't feel like driving 30 minutes to Joanns. Also, I plan on putting black lace around the waist line. Mostly to cover up where I put in the darts, but eh, I think it'll add something to the front of the skirt (which is currently just blue).

Whatcha thinK!?
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Elie Saab Dress.. on: December 08, 2005 03:15:45 PM
Okay, I'm looking for a pattern for this Elie Saab dress:

I found Simplicity 5044
and I think it's going to be the closest match.. anyone have any other suggestions? Other patterns, or a dress like this you've already made?

I think I'm going to keep it mostly like the Elie Saab dress, with the silver sequins and white fabric, but going to arrange the sequins in another way. I think.. I still have a while to do this, so whatever helps :]

It's going to be my prom dress. :]
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Hat Rack? on: November 25, 2005 10:18:11 PM
So.. I think this would go in this topic, sorry if it doesn't!

My boyfriend has mentioned he needs something to organize his hats (he has many).  I dont' really want to just go out and buy an everyday hat rack, but I have no crafty-juice running thru me right now. Therefore I'm not really sure where to start. I dont want to do much woodwork (I just don't have the tools)

I work at Joann's and havn't really looked around at everything specifically for this project, would something might be there that I can work with?

Thanks so much if you can help!
