1  raindrops keep falling on my head... (pics pics) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by razzly on: March 07, 2006 10:43:06 PM
So, I've been going through my closet and dresser drawers pulling out all the clothes I don't wear anymore, and cutting them up and piecing them back together into items I will wear. So this shirt was made from a white tee that had some paint and pizza sauce stains on (hehe I'm such a slob), and 2 button up spandexy/cottony shirts I got too big for. I cut the raindrops and cloud outta the 2 shirts and hand stitched the faces on, then just used my sewing machine and alot of patients (curses wee stretchy stuff always bunching up!) to put them onto the tee over all the stains! And voila~ My own creation of silly raindrops and a loveable raincloud!

2  snappy coin purse and my first actual purse (image heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by razzly on: November 18, 2005 11:34:41 AM
After I made a few easy projects on my new sewing machine, I wanted to make something smaller and easy, too. So, I ended up with this coin purse with the left over fabric from my husband's pillow case and lined it with some old fabric my grandmother had left me.

 Then I decided to make a purse! I didn't have a pattern, but just started sewing away! I wish the camera didn't make the outside fabric look so wonky~ Tongue It's a brown and blue soft tweed type fabric.
There's an outside pocket with a snap and an antique button on the outside from my grandmother. There's also a simple inside pocket, and a side cell phone pocket as well.

I got the fabric for the purse at Hancock's and the coin purse fabric at In the Beginning Fabrics (which has an incredible amount of vintage looking fabrics!!) But I really just love the lining fabric for the purse! hehe

I got some pink tweedy type fabric and some pink version of the purse lining to make my friend a Christmas present. Anyone know of any stores that have really neat purse/hand bag patterns?

Thanks for looking! Cheesy

3  first project: Pillow Case in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by razzly on: November 18, 2005 11:23:10 AM
What's the first thing you make when you get a new sewing machine and haven't used one in year? A pillow case of course! Cheesy

So, I made one for my husband.

I chose this fabric because he really like weird colors and donkeys.
I used the "chicken feet" stitch for the outside seem because it makes me giggle.

hehe anyways, thanks for looking!

4  my new pin cushion in Completed Projects by razzly on: November 17, 2005 12:29:02 PM
this little guy is very handy around the house! it took me a whole 15 minutes to make this! if i can get my scanner to work, I'll scan in the pattern i used to make it. please take note of the detailed stitching. yes. very beautiful work, i must say. i thought adding this precious border might help bring out the unique handsomeness of this elegant pin cushion.

thanks for looking.

  Cheesy  Wink

(just in case. yes this is kinda a joke. my husband looked at it after coming home and started making fun of how sadly pathetic it looked and it probably needed extra love to make up for its shortcomings. so i thought i would share our silliness with you. Smiley and no, there is no pattern either.)

5  Cake Topper (Fisher Price Little People) in Weddings and Bridal Showers by razzly on: August 08, 2005 06:58:05 PM
Me and my hubby wanted to make our wedding as personalized as possible and try to break outta the "wedding mold" Tongue (I was lucky enough to have a fiance that actually insisted on helping out!)

One of our fun projects was the cake topper. We sat down and tried to come up with ideas that appealed to both of us, and we had both played with the Fisher Price Little People when we were kiddos! So we looked on Ebay and checked out the thrift stores for the ones that weren't like the modern day squat-chubby ones, but the ones we actually had back in the 80's. We found the ones we wanted on ebay for fairly cheap (generally $0.99 a piece or for a set of 3 or 4 depending on if there's rare ones in the lot). These also work great because they have that thinner part below their body's that would go in the holes of their chairs or cars or whatnot, and just sink that part of them into the cake! Then noworries about them falling over (cuz her veil pushes her over on her face! LOL )

His was fairly easy for the groom. We just ordered a Circus Ring Master for his (LOL he liked the one with the funny mustache!!). And I ordered the "Mom" with the yellow hair and the blue body with the "Samantha Stevens" eyes from Bewitched. (Anyways, that's who those eyes reminded me of as a kid anywas hehe Tongue ) Well, I have black hair, and was wearing a white dress, so I had to do some painting.

I very lightly sanded down the Bride and used 2 layers of white primer paint on her hair and her body. Then I used a semi-gloss white we had at the house, and semi-gloss black for the hair. Both regular Latex Non-Toxic house paints. (Be sure the paint you use, if you do this type of project, is NonToxic, cuz it'll be touching your cake Tongue ).

After she dried for a day or two (wanted to be double triple sure being I was a nervous bride and didn't want ANYTHING to go wrong Tongue ) I then hot glued on her veil with a scrap I had cut from some of our left over tulle we used for decorating the church and topped it off with some ribbon left over from our homemade invites and some "pearls". They were the talk of the reception! Cheesy

Hope every bride and groom here has equally fun and cute projects to add personality to your wedding!

6  Space Invaders wall (image heavy) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by razzly on: August 08, 2005 05:48:06 PM
we just moved into a new place, and i promised my husband he could have his very own room all to himself, and he decided it needed to be a game room (finally we have a game room!!  Cheesy )

so as a suprise (and he was!  Grin ) i decided to make him a Space invaders wall!

here we go!

First we just had a large walk in closet that he had decided he wanted to set up his arcade machine. It's pretty ugly.

Especially after i've sanded it down and puttied up some holes.

I started out with some basice colors we had lying around the house (he's a arteest!) and printed out some MS Paint "patterns" i created of the aliens from the game!

Then, I painted the wall black, and tried to start painting the aliens in color... but alas, started over by painting them in white first, then in color. was much faster this way, and could see the aliens better!

and Ta-dah! Finished project! He was extremely happy! Cheesy

Don't forget to use fans and open doors and windows when painting! Especially in a closed in area such as a closet! Cheesy
