11  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Sherri Dupree Watercolor on: February 08, 2005 06:09:01 PM
This is a watercolor that I finished last week in art class of the "lead" singer of Eisley.


I sent her a link to it and she said she really likes it which makes me happy. It's my first watercolor that I actually put some work into.
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Presenting: the "four hour havoc". on: December 21, 2004 05:25:56 PM
So last night I was cleaning out my closet [not in an eminem way], and realized that I have a lot of crappy bags that I never use. They are all flimsy, non-functional bags, with the exception of two. Soooo I'm throwing them all out-okay I'm giving 2 to my friend, but the rest are going away for a loooong time.

The Lara bag must consist of 3 major ingredients:
Stabilty, cuteness, and of course it must function properly.

So I said, "NO MORE PROMOTING BANDS ON MY BAGS! [except for pins]" With Igor on my side I got to work and slaveeeeeed. Yes, the damn bag did take 4 hours from cutting to sewing the last detail, I'll explain after the pictures.


As you can see in the last picture, my Jordy bag has a weird curve. This was NOT intentional. It's another When good sewing machines go bad story. Of course I did know how to use the buttonhole function on my mom's high tech machine, but for some reason the thread was bunching up and I had to keep ripping it out. I was a smartass and decided to not use the velcro to begin with, and so decided to add a button in the middle at the very end. ...never again.  Angry

But hey it's functional, cute, and it holds my cell phone, wallet, orbit gum, and keys with plenty of room left, and that was all I really needed. Plus it's got heavy duty interfacing so it's not flimsy  Smiley

Comments, questions, concerns?

13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / pretty pink clutch on: December 19, 2004 01:28:58 PM
I'm hoping my friend doesn't come to craftster because she'll see her presents. Anywayyyy:


https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=20061.0 <-- that was the tutorial

I had to tweak it a little though because I'm stubborn and refuse to put the velcro on after sewing the lining and outter pieces together. So naturally, I screwed up the bag and had to find a way to fix it.  Cheesy
14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / :) It's little, its got hearts, and it's 100% sexy. on: December 10, 2004 07:03:19 PM
There is a slash pocket on the other side, and messed up red lining with a zippered pocket inside!
The lining got messed up because I messed up my zippered pocket and had to start over and didn't know my starting measurements.

I'm planning to make a new one that isn't defective.
Thanks for listening, I mean reading..
15  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Charities and Foundations that I can raise money for? on: December 09, 2004 02:32:44 PM
I was looking for good organizations that I could raise money for if anyone knew of certain ones that are good.

Then after that I'm going to somehow connect my craft to what I'm supporting. [i.e. if I'm raising money for troops in iraq, I'll be making some kind of military related craft]

Thank you for your time.
16  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Like taking the lord to a hardcore show. on: November 09, 2004 02:25:29 PM
It's not finished, I still have to stick a band's name in the banner, but it will be a "hardcore Christian band."

"Ouch" to the annoying hardcore scenesters. Jesus is more hardcore than you.  Tongue
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 50s-ish homecoming dress on: October 31, 2004 05:56:01 AM
I started sewing the top half of the dress, but my mom sewed the rest due to this past week's hetic schedule. Our theme was Alice in Wonderland, and I wasn't trying to be part of the theme. Tell me what you think.


Excuse my fake smiles.
18  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / I will be your friend forever if you can guess what I am... on: October 28, 2004 01:06:29 PM
Today was our school's Halloween costume day, and it seemed everyone thought I was a judge or a graduate.


And to think I spent so much time on that patch and tie to be called names like that.
Bloody muggles  Angry
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Big shirt:: Needs Big Ideas on: October 09, 2004 06:13:38 AM
I got this shirt at a show last night and even though it's a small, it's huge. I was thinking of turning it into some kind of dress.

What do you think I should do with it?
And if you think I should make it into a dress, what style dress should I make?
20  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / I do photography. [kinda image heavy] on: October 03, 2004 09:42:35 AM
