21  Birdy Scarf (sewn, not knitted) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by modpodge on: November 26, 2005 10:04:06 AM
Inspired by the latest issue of Readymade, I made this scarf out of two sweaters I never wear for my boyfriend's stepsister. It was a pain to sew, but I'm pretty happy with how it came out. The birds are charms from http://www.sacredkitschstudio.com/ (an awesome site with some really cool charms) and the surrounding material is felt. I would definitely do this again, as I can't knit, but love scarves!

Its pretty long....

22  Amazingly Huge Simplicity 4668 in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by modpodge on: November 06, 2005 03:58:46 PM
I love this pattern! It was pretty easy- I haven't sewn from a pattern in years, and i had no trouble with this one. The dimensions are pretty huge as well, which i appreciate in a bag (i carry around a lot of stuff).

Does anyone have any suggestions for what to put on the outside? It looks a little plain to me...

23  Pirate-y Velvet Blazer in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by modpodge on: October 30, 2005 04:37:37 PM
I made this a while back, before the blazer explosion! It was thrifted, and cost me about $5.00. I jazzed up the fake pockets with a split stitch.

I'm no tease! Here is my bag, in all it's floppiness-

I picked it because it fits my two requirements for a purse-

1. The handles fit over my shoulder (i have no time or energy to hold a little clutch in my hand)

2. It fits a book (i have no time or energy for purses that cannot fulfill this requirement!)

I like the colors, but its a little too bland for me...the perfect pick for this swap- it holds possibilities for painting, stenciling, or embroidery!

Well....I can help you out on this one- decoupage is definitely the way to go. I used this book http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/3822819794/qid=1129648261/sr=8-2/ref=pd_bbs_2/002-1998287-5420867?v=glance&s=books&n=507846 to decoupage some cheapo Ikea planters:

Decoupage, again for a cheapo Ikea mirror:

Decoupage on a much bigger mirror that I found lying in an alley:

This site also has some tattoo-inspired bedding and pillowcases http://www.sininlinen.com/products/pillowcases.htm
You could probably make some of your own with the lusted after fabric from ReproDepot: http://reprodepot.com/taflbl.html (it comes in black and "tea" colored as well)

*Phew* Ok, i think i'm doing. sorry if i killed your computer with all the pics!

27  Family Tree for my Grandparent's 50th Anniversary in Stenciling: Completed Projects by modpodge on: October 09, 2005 04:02:27 PM
I made a family tree for my grandparent's 50th anniversary. As you can see, its pretty large- and this is only kids and their kids (no spouses)! I used a vintage pillowcase as the background, acrylic paints, and a fabric pen to put in the names. It was fairly easy, and I'm thinking of doing something like this for christmas presents.

I received my pack from sporkx71 today- there are an assortment of beads, brass (head-pins, i think they are called), fabric scraps,and a star stamp! This was the swiftest, most problem-free swap, I've ever been in, thanks for everything spork! I'm especially happy with the beads and pins, as I just started to make jewelry.

30  In Memory of Lynne in Crafty Charitable/Social Causes by modpodge on: September 30, 2005 07:32:13 PM
My boyfriend's mother Lynne was a crafty kind of lady...she acted, sang, and made full fledged home movie productions with her husband... Here's a link to my boyfriend's donation page. Just thought I would put this out on Craftster:
