1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / History Assignment; Memory Box! HEEEELLLP! on: May 09, 2006 02:56:53 PM
Okay, as an assignment for my Canadian History class, we have to make memory box of a 'Father of Confederation.'  My assigned father of Confederation is 'George Etienne Cartier.'  It doesn't matter if you're not Canadian or you have no clue what a 'Father of Confederation' is, but just think historical...  I need some ideas on how to design the memory box and what items I should put inside.  Please help!!!  Thanks.,
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bottle Cap Necklace Remake on: February 12, 2006 09:30:39 AM
I rented Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen (the movie with Lindsay Lohan) for my kid sister and I ended up watching it with her.  The necklace that lindsay lohan's character "Lola"  is wearing is absolutely phenomenal!  i fell in love with it!   I searched craftster for something like that and i found look a likes that were great so i tried my own hand at it.  Soooo... i bout a few cheap necklaces, some scrapbook bottlecap embellishments and i put it together into a necklace!!! it actually wasn't as hard as i thought it was and it definitely didn't take as long as i thought it would.  It's definitely not as good as the original (seeing as i don't have vintage coke bottle caps)  but, yea, its good enough for me, and plus im not pro jewekery maker either.

here's the original from the movie vvvv

and here's my take on it vvvv

me wearing it vvvv

please leave your comments questions etc.... thanks for looking!

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / CUTE PURSE MADE OF JEAN CUFF AND BANDANA! on: January 02, 2006 12:25:38 AM
Hellooo... I'm only 13 years old and I absolutely LOVE DIY stuff (Which many of my friends find strikingly strange because they say DIY is for grannies...which is so untrue).  This is my first and much needed post at craftster. This purse was created this past summer in a desperate need for something to do.  It's a cute purse that originated from a pair of jeans that I wore as a kid.  It's completely hand-sewn (this was before I got my new sewing machine).  I made the handle by braiding three strands of the blue bandanna and then sewing it onto the inside of the purse.  I made a similar one out of corduroy pants and a pink bandanna for my best friend's 13th birthday.     The pictures are kind of cruddy (sorry!) because I took them on webcam late at night.  But, soon I will try to get better pictures from my digital camera.

the purse....

the bowtie on the front (made of a strip of a blue bandanna)

the inside of the purse lined with turquoise-ish bandanna (includes my beautiful iPod, de-odourant and lipgloss Wink )

And there it is... Please leave your comments questions and suggestions.  Thanks.
