1  70's curtain bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by A_BigBigLove on: March 24, 2007 05:39:43 PM
i made this purse ages ago (almost a year!), but just recently got around to taking proper pictures of it!
There were a lot of similar purses floating around here awhile ago, because, like those, this was inspired by a purse from TopShop.
well enough talk, here it is!

and a close up

and the little keychain i made to go with it, inspired by one i saw on fredflare.com for $8! i like mine better.

thanks for looking!

2  Re: Show off your hair! And questions about hair styles! in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by A_BigBigLove on: February 25, 2007 10:58:39 PM
my hair hasn't been its natural color for about ohhhh 5 years.
heres a kind of timeline of the colors, as you can see i didn't get to crazy with color and id get lazy and go months without redying (as you can tell from a few of those pics)
its basically in sequence, except the first two, which should be switched, but other than that it goes from 4 years ago, to the color it is right now, which is pretty close to my natural color.

it's been brown for almost six months now and i'm bored with it! i think i'm gonna grow it long but i miss color too! but i don't want the high maintenance of a full head of color, whats a girl to do?!

4  blue meshy scarf! (semi-photo-phat) in Crochet: Completed Projects by A_BigBigLove on: February 19, 2007 01:59:20 AM
another project i made ages ago, i just made it up as i went kind of inspired by this scarf http://www.angelfire.com/folk/celtwich/mortoringscarf1927.html
even though they aren't very similar looking.

the two ends (which are different sizes  Undecided) are a pattern called ribbon from a pattern dictionary.

i was wondering if there was a way to make mesh without the squared looking so, well, unsquare-like.

5  your 10 cent clip-on is my fancy new necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by A_BigBigLove on: February 19, 2007 01:49:19 AM
so i found this gorgeous clip-on earring at a thrift store, with no price tag and no mate, so they gave it to me for 10cents!

this isn't a horribly difficult idea that took a lot of skill, but i thought it might inspire some of you other craftsters!

i just super glued the earring shut, you know, so it didn't "clip" anymore, and strung it on a chain!

isn't it lovely?!

6  my brand new car.... in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by A_BigBigLove on: February 19, 2007 01:38:43 AM

anyway... i got this little green car figurine in a Christmas cracker and instantly knew it would make a perfect necklace, so here it is!

(first picture is the real color)

oldly, i've gotten a lot of compliments on it, i mean i knew it was awesome, but i didn't think other people would care.

9  purple pdq! in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by A_BigBigLove on: February 19, 2007 01:12:54 AM
so I've been holding out on you, my fellow craftster brethren by not posting my creations for months.
well i made PDQ from the book this summer with some purple red heart
haven't a chance to wear it much since i made it in the summer then i moved to Arizona, so not much need. and i don't think i look good in hats. i just made it for fun.

so here it is, flaps down

and flaps up, which i don't really like at all

see, gross!

thanks for looking!

10  What to do with beyond repair converse?? in What the heck can I do with THIS? by A_BigBigLove on: July 23, 2005 04:12:19 PM
I've finally retiered my beautiful red converse. They've been "repaired" about 3 or 4 times already and need a break.
and i really don't wanna just throw them away or just have them sit in the corner of my room [i love them so Cry ]
but i can't think of anything useful to do with them, so i was hopeing all you wonderful craftsters could help me out with some ideas!!

here some pictures so you have an idea of what there is to work with [and cause i love 'em]


you can see that the hole's gotten outta control
...not sure why i'm doing the star trek hand signal :/


the "repairing" held up better on this one but rocks still find their way in :/

any ideas??? i do remeber someone on I Love the 80's mentioning their mother used her old ones as plant holders but haven't figured out how that would work...

any help is appreciated!!!
