71  Portraits of People You Never Knew in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by iota1617 on: March 01, 2009 12:51:24 PM
These are photos of people that I think are interesting to think about.  I found the photos online (http://foundmagazine.com and flickr). 

The first one is of a man. 

And the second is of twins.  there was a whole flickr pool of pictures of these ladies and in every picture they were dressed the same.  They were teenagers up through old ladies in the pictures!

72  Wire and Pop can Bird in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by iota1617 on: December 28, 2008 05:47:05 PM
This is a project I made as a Christmas gift for my parents.    This little bird is made out of non-corrosive alloy wire and pop cans. 

He was really fun to make and is free standing.  The hardest part of making him was getting the wings to stick to each other and the body!  But I have learned a valuable lesson.  Two Part Epoxy is a wonderful thing.

73  Wire Hang Ups in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by iota1617 on: December 28, 2008 05:40:20 PM
These are two projects I made for my Grandparents for Christmas. 

They are both made with non-corrosive, non-staining alloy wire. 

The little bird in the middle of this one is ceramic.  The rings all spin freely 360 degrees.

74  Plaid Shoulder Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by iota1617 on: December 28, 2008 05:33:58 PM
I made this bag for my Aunt for Christmas.  She liked it.  And I like it too!  When I was wrapping it I was thinking, "Boy, I wouldn't mind keeping this."

The straps and lining are a burnt orange canvas type material and the plaid outside material feels like a softer burlap.

75  Avocado Sushi: Version giant and squishy! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by iota1617 on: December 14, 2008 10:10:20 AM
This is a Christmas gift for my friend who really likes avocado sushi.   And he needs some pillows for his new place so I combined all that into this Avocado Sushi Pillow!  Both sides look the same with the avocado and the fish.

The size actually got away from me.  When I thought about making this, I wanted it to be the size of a couch throw pillow or something similar.  Ha ha!  As it turns out it wanted to be much, much larger!  It is about 18 inches from end to end, but that just means there is more to hug. (:

76  felt + cassettes = coinpurse madness in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by iota1617 on: December 04, 2008 01:02:22 PM
This is a Christmas gift for my friend who saw a cassette tape coin purse and loved it! 
It is entirely hand sewn.  I used felt and a clear cassette tape.

one side has polka dots and shapes

and the other has stripes

and here is the inside with the lining

I am pretty proud of how it turned out and can't wait to give it to her!

78  Secret Spell Book in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by iota1617 on: October 25, 2008 04:31:31 PM
My friend just had a birthday and I made this Spell Book with a secret compartment for her. 
I think it turned out well and that she liked it.

I made a fabric cover and stenciled the title and design on the binding.

This is the original book.

and the inside secret compartment.

I referenced this great Make: Weekend Project video to make the secret compartment.

79  Deep Sea Fish! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by iota1617 on: October 12, 2008 12:03:33 PM
I fell in love with this fish fabric the moment I saw it.

I used the fish fabric for the main front and back.  The fabric is really soft and comfy but not very stretchy so I used a mega stretchy cotton on the sides and for the band on the bottom.

80  Loopy Weaving in Beads: Completed Projects by iota1617 on: September 07, 2008 07:22:28 PM
This bracelet is a return to beading for me.  I used to to a tremendous amount of beading in high school but I eventually got tired of it, so I just kind of stashed all of the supplies away.  But then my friend and I took part in a glass bead making workshop and each had a hand in making our own glass beads.   

I made the big orange bead in the workshop and then made a weave with a loopy pattern.  I really enjoyed beading again and was happy with the result.
