41  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Nature Pendants (from my little sister for Christmas!) on: January 08, 2006 08:38:24 AM
I just wanted to show off what my wonderfully artsy/craftsy sister gave me for Christmas. She made these pendants in an art class at school, and used real leaves for the images:

I'm so used to giving out handmade presents at Christmas, I love receiving handmade gifts even more! The little triangle one is my favorite.
42  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Vintage Craft Projects / Crafty Pinups on: January 08, 2006 08:18:25 AM
I wasn't sure where to put these, but I was looking through my tear off pinup calendar for 2005 (which I never tore off, wanted to save them for craft projects!) and I found these two lovely ladies. Maybe someone could use them for an iron on transfer or decoupage...

43  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Re: Pirate-y Velvet Blazer on: December 28, 2005 02:14:56 PM
Arrgh! Was it hard to embroider on the velvet? I mean, was it lined or double thickness and did that pose a problem?

It was actually really easy, as I was just embroidering on the flap, and not through the thickness of the flap and the body of the jacket.

This is a very basic tote pattern, though you might want to buy a little more webbing to lengthen the straps. It looks tacky, but with a funky fabric, it would look great!

Wellll....my partner, ClassyLassy, got her package a while ago, but I know she's been having some computer problems lately, so I'll go ahead and please the masses and post pictures of what I sent her.

This isn't all of it, I don't know where I saved my other pics!

46  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: how to get away with tracing patterns..any ideas on iron on paper? on: December 14, 2005 09:45:57 AM
I've been just printing out my design on plain old paper, pinning it to the fabric, and sewing right over it (i feed lined noteebook paper through my printer as well). It sounds sheisty, but it works REALLY WELL!! Now I can do intricate stitching very easily, with no in-between steps to get the image on the fabric.

When I'm done stitching, i just tear away the paper, like dyabolica said. Its so easy, I can't believe I just realized recently I could do it like this.

These are absolutely gorgeous- the top skull and "beauty is pain" are my favorites. You should really consider selling these.

I love it! Great job! Hope your partner contacts you at some point, I have a non-appreciative/communicating partner as well- some people just have bad manners, your partner should contact you whether or not they liked it.

Hey thats really neat!!  How many times have you washed the pillowcase?  I would like to try it on my duvet cover, but don't want it to fade (too quickly!)

Hope your sister liked the pillowcase!  I think I got that sheet set from a garage sale this summer lol!

I haven't washed it yet, but I have a pillowcase skirt that I used these markers on, and they didn't fade when they went through the wash! I think its pretty much the same idea as a permanent marker, which will NEVER come out of clothing. Thanks for the compliments!
