1  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / My first, funky Frosted Glasses! on: June 19, 2007 09:17:55 PM
I got into the joy of ArmourEtch tonight and made some glasses.

This one is for my brother, who loves Pirates. I did the lettering, and the ship was a stencil that came with my etching kit:

This is for me. It's my initials, and designs relating to my school major, theatre design:

This is also for me. It features lots of cute bunnies! :

And finally, for my sister, who asked for a sun on hers:

Poor Ambraqi has had a bad month. Her partner flaked on her and just recently her little hampster, Basil, passed away. The swap was to make little gifts for our small pets and their human counterparts.
If an angel could make a nice package for ambraqi, it would be appriciated. Perhaps something in memory of little Basil?
Thanks! Smiley

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Brown Corduroy Embroidered Messenger on: August 07, 2006 01:57:20 PM
Name: Brown Corduroy Embroidered Messenger

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My brown courduroy messanger bag on: August 05, 2006 07:15:12 PM
I was inspired to make a bag the other day, and a trip to Jo Ann's Fabric resulted in some beautifully embroidered brown corduroy fabric that I just had to buy (despite it's rather steep $14.99/yrd....I only needed a yard anyway!).
Following a wonderful tutorial by Frogz (found here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=36676.0), I made my first messanger bag (and my first lined bag, and first project with piping!) complete with buckles, pockets under the flap, and a little pocket on the shoulder strap. I added some iron-on interfacing to the front, back, and flap for strength.
I'm in love with this bag!  What do you think?

Modeling the bag (I look really excited...but I was!)

The exterior of the bag:

The interior:

My room after the bag...what a mess!

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My first pair of PJs! on: August 04, 2006 03:02:12 PM
I've been an amateur sewer forever...I can do your basic hems and pillows and all that jazz, but I've never attempted clothing (except for dolls)...until today! When I was at Jo Ann's Fabrics the other day, I fell in love with this cozy flannel print featuring little palettes and famous architecture. I bought it and went to work...I had an older pair of PJs that were worn out, so I ripped out the seams and used them as a pattern for a new pair of pants!
And I found a pajama shirt I had that happened to match, and added some coordinating cuffs.
Without further ado...my first venture into clothes:
(ignore my funny looking boobs...I dunno what is going on here!)

The pants:

And the shirt, with the pants:

Not too awful for my first try! The back of the pants sits a bit low, but otherwise, they fit great Smiley
10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Pockets the Denim Penguin on: January 10, 2006 04:43:16 PM
Here is my new friend Pockets:

He's made out of the leg of a pair of jeans, with pockets for his wings and beak. I used bleach to get his whitened tummy and eyes. What do you think? Smiley He definitely looks better in real life (and much more cuddly!) I guess photos don't do him justice!
He was pretty easy to make, seeing as I'm a terrible sewer and I don't have a machine available, so this guy was done by hand. If there is a real big interest, I can make a tutorial.
