11  McCalls Strapless Summer Dress in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by JamieInTheAK on: June 15, 2006 09:10:26 PM
Hey Gals.  Last week I finished a McCall's pattern - 5040 EE It worked out pretty well.  I used the size 20.  I normally wear a 18 jean, so if that give you any indication.  This was my first pattern project.  Pretty happy with it and thought I would share. 

The dress:

She is a little stretched on, but I don't think Betty would mind.

13  Re: Amazing hoodie swap 2 in The Swap Gallery by JamieInTheAK on: June 04, 2006 09:45:16 PM
I haven't heard if VeryCrafty has received her hoodie, but I decide to post my pics of it.  I did a little post stalking and learned that her nick name is angel and she likes Japanese stuff, so I painted with acrylic and fabric medium and sharpie marker wings on the back of the hoodie then a bunch of loose feathers.  In between the wings I wrote in Japanese "Angel."  It was just a pull over hoodie so I sewed in a zipper.  It was my first and turned out "okay" there was left over hoodie at the bottom, but it was EVEN!  Anyways, I hope she enjoyed it.

The back:

The side (with me in it...excuse the pj pants):

Close up of the back:

VeryCrafty-  If you have better pictures, please go a head and post.  I was just happy with the outcome and wanted some feed back.

Thanks to Lasandri for being an awesome swap coordinator!

15  Old Skirt Into Strapless Dress in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by JamieInTheAK on: May 08, 2006 02:20:09 PM
I have been drooling over the cute little strapless summer dresses I see everywhere, but couldn't find one that fit me right in the top.  As fate would have it, I also cleaned my closet and found a skirt that I used to love but never wear anymore.  So! what I did was cut the top (to keep the elastic and draw tie) -- made that into a bodice empire waist thingy then stitched up the slits in the skirt.  Now the draw string makes a cute little bow on the top of the dress. (Not that it looks cute in the picture, but I had just finished sewing) Grin  I actually wore it to work the other day.

17  Magazine Bowls (idea from previous post) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by JamieInTheAK on: April 16, 2006 10:51:59 AM
I finished up two magazine bowls using the tute from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=71395.0.  I really like this idea and am starting a HUGE bowl...kinda like a floor vase.  I just wanted to bring this idea up again and show off what I have done with so far.  When I am done the floor vase I will post.  Thanks for the great idea!

My first one -  I like the idea of bending it.

The second I gave a way as a present, so it's not as artsy.

18  Beer Cap Frig Magnets in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by JamieInTheAK on: April 16, 2006 10:42:43 AM
My ex boyfriend collected bottle caps for about a year. So I promptly took them and told him he would get a craft as payment.  This is what I came up with.  I used scrapbooking letters for the inside of the caps.  Some I flipped to put letters in and some I put the magnet inside so they are flush with the frig. I think they turned out way cool.  I wish I would have kept them for myself  Wink  The words say "Got Beer."

19  Box with tissue decopage (Image heavy) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by JamieInTheAK on: April 16, 2006 10:36:12 AM
I got a set of boxes with candy in them from an office mate for Christmas.  I took one of the boxes and decopaged tissues (neat 1950's kitschy design)  all over the box.  The quote says " She threw herself eagerly into the baths of unsuitable men"

20  Picture frame out of a window frame in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by JamieInTheAK on: April 16, 2006 10:29:43 AM
I got this window frame from a flea market.  I used masking tape and put in a mediocre photo of a barn that I took a long time a go in it.  It gave it a whole new life for the frame and the photo.
