1  t-shirts to bags in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by queenoftiaras on: April 12, 2006 07:32:29 AM
Haven't posted here in ages been busy with uni but managed to knock up some bags recently.
These were t-shirts that were old or too big so I though instead of re-sizing them to turn them into bags.

Before ^ old faded cyberdog tee

After^ cute little handbag! This was pretty easy I just measured a rectangle out & went from there.

No before pics I can't find them! but this was a cute tank type top from an underwear set that was too big so I turned it into this fantastic bag.

2  sewing stockings in Winter Holidays by queenoftiaras on: December 15, 2005 06:58:41 AM
since I lost the thread a new one!

I sewed up some stockings, I just drew out the basic shape & cut pieces out. I tryed to make some from fleece & zebra fabric. the fleece ones didn't work but the zebra ones did!

the top ones crammed full of items! I sent some secret santas (from another forum) out in them  Grin i may make more for family pressies but they'd need to huge! so it depends on my fabric stockpile.

3  Re: First soaps, melt & pour soaps I've made. in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by queenoftiaras on: December 15, 2005 06:55:52 AM
the leaf mould was on a huge mould I got on ebay (99p!) & the skullie mould I got thanks to a fellow craftser.

I've made more so heres a photo of soaps made this past weekend, I went a bit over the top when I realised I had loose glitter I could add to soaps.

the purple/blue soap with gold glitter looks so fantastic

4  First soaps, melt & pour soaps I've made - new photos further down! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by queenoftiaras on: December 10, 2005 10:57:18 AM
I intended to make some cute spooky soaps for halloween but the dyes came late so I only really recently made some melt & pour soaps up.

This first one i made last month

it was reluctant to escape it's mould so I kept it for myself as the knife smushed half of the edge, it's pink & chocolate scented it's almost a small blob in my sink now but for my first soap it smelt yummy.

More recently I made these up

Much better results! (excuse the soap box to balance them on) a mixture of peppermint, lavander & chocolate scented soaps, the leaves came out very cute actually they were all a test as my 3rd lot of soaps and finally they turned out alright. The only slight problem being one of the blue soaps is a bit oily I used essential peppermint oil instead of fragrance but it is slowly drying up next time I'll use less oil.

I'll be including them as extras for xmas presents now I just need some cheap cute packaging (ahh student budgets)

5  easy project, trimmings to necklaces! in Beads: Completed Projects by queenoftiaras on: November 08, 2005 05:30:10 AM
I recently spotted some yummy beaded trimming in my local abakahn's & thought why not make them into necklaces. After buying a ton of metres worth of different trims I figured the easy way to make them wearable.

Get your length of trim & a glue gun, simply glue the ends together, don't do this while its fully hot! as you'll need to hold the ends together so the glue stays on.

then it's done!

so much cheaper than claries, each trim cost no more than 50p a metre!

6  alternate jewellery stands! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by queenoftiaras on: October 22, 2005 07:39:01 AM
I was desperate for a new jewellery stand, as I've been using a barbie stand to hold all my necklaces and well it couldn't hold everything so after looking around my room I made use of items & now they have a second purpose:
Bass jewellery stand.

I don't have the time to use it what with uni being insanely busy so it's making a new use & holding half of my big necklaces!

Cd rack stand.

It was handed down to me by my sister so now as well as holding cd's it holds some extra jewellery

Not much effort was used but at least I saved a few pounds!

7  bunny/cabbit & kitty earred hats! tutorial added down the page in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by queenoftiaras on: October 20, 2005 08:07:59 AM
I made these months back & they are so fantastically cute! I just made mine based on a similar hat I bought from http://www.vags.net last year, I wanted bigger kitty ears though so made one & started from there.

All modelled by my 'modelling head':

They're pretty easy to make if I get the time a tutorial attempt shall pop up.

8  Re: scrapbook eyelets used on clothing in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by queenoftiaras on: September 17, 2005 08:17:31 AM
incase anyone noses back I've used the eyelets to decorate a corset I'm making:

^ I had to punch a hole as usual but couldn't secure the eyelets properly so I've glued the back of them & will covering them in cotton tape when it arrives, so hopefully they'll stay in place!
