1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Stockings!! on: December 13, 2007 12:29:02 PM
I made my hubby & I some stockings several years ago & kept meaning to make some for my kids, but kept putting it off. Well, now that son is 19 & out on his own & my daughter is almost 18, but I made them this morning, finally:

My son's

And my daughter's

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Camera Case on: July 02, 2007 12:33:05 PM
I just got a new Fuji Finepix, and while I own a camera case & its fine for everyday use, I want to take my camera with me to the Renne Faire & it just won't do. So, I made myself a cute little one out of two layers of felt.

The whole enchilada:

And the belt loop:

3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / "Illuminati" Tee on: August 27, 2006 11:26:58 AM
I did this one from an illustration from "Angels & Demons" by Dan Brown. It reads exactly the same upside down as it does right side up. I used acrylics & textile medium, and it took about 5 or 6 layers of each color.

and the action shot (the dark spots are water from my wet hair)

Here's the other one I made my daughter for back-to-school:

The beginning:

The middle:


Again, just freezer paper, acrylic & textile medium.

5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Geeky DOS Shirt on: August 17, 2006 10:07:01 AM
This is my first post in here (not my first shirt - I'm just lousy at remembering to get pics). I made this shirt for my geek daughter, for school this year. Today was her first day & she wore it, so I remembered:

Just done with freezer paper, acrylic & textile medium.
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / BoHo Hobo on: April 19, 2006 03:58:49 PM
I entered this in the bag challenge, but thought I'd post it here, too.

This is my own pattern, because I couldn't understand any of the hobo tutorials in here enough to feel confidant making one. It seems like I'm always searching for the perfect sized bag, either they're too big & I lose everything inside them, or they're too small & I can't fit what I need into them, or they're perfect, but the strap is too long or too short.. so I came up with what I hope will be perfect for me:

The outside, which I beaded & added beaded fringe too, because I'm a freak for anything that has a gypsy flair to it.

The inside with all of my junk in there. I hope to make some matching stuff for it soon.

Action shot.. my hubby's computer hutch loooooves purses!
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Cell Phone Cozy on: March 06, 2006 08:48:35 AM
I started out using this tutorial: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=21586.0, but since I was in the other room, all I really got was the basic idea & the shape, then I went my own way.

The outside:

The inside:

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Several Purses - IMAGe HEAVY on: February 16, 2006 04:09:18 PM
I've been busily sewing purses for my booth at our upcoming Renaissance Faire. These are all a modified Jordy bag, where I add a few seems to make them boxier, don't use interfacing & add a flap. They're all fairly small, but I'll make a few larger ones before July. No idea on pricing on these yet.

Here's the first one, I embroidered around the suns & accent pieces & the lining:

The second, I think this is my favoite one, I like the embroidered heart & the softness of the colors & the lining:

The third, I added the little sun, because I felt the flap needed a bit of something & its lining:

And the last one. This one gave me a lot of problems, the button loop is crooked, as is the inner pocket.

9  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Jack o'Lantern Patch on: October 26, 2005 08:55:40 AM
I have been making little handsewn prizes for my upcoming Halloween party & came up with this little patch last night. I'm trying to decide whether to sew a safety pin on the back or leave it as is.


The colors are actually somewhere in between - stupd camera!
10  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / My Latest Soap (Image Heavy) on: October 23, 2005 07:29:19 AM
This is my first actual project post here, so be gentle *L*

This first soap is the last cold process I made, it's pumpkin pie, colored with cinnamon.

The next is when I went back to Hot Process Oven Method & is a soap scented with a fragrance called "Sensual" that I'm calling "Black Magic." It smells like sandalwood, vanilla, musk & a little orange & cinnamon. Its my new favorite.

This is also HPOM, scented too lightly (I had two batches of CP fail before using the last of the fragrance on this one) with Apple Jack. I also cut the bars too thin.

The last one is Pumpkin Oatmeal, with added oatmeal & colored with cinnamon (I added the oatmeal & cinnamon at trace), before I put it in the oven. It's also HPOM.
