1  Bat curtain - filet crochet in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by damn your eyes on: August 23, 2008 04:40:43 PM

I made this curtain for my bedroom window from the pattern used to teach filet crochet. It's perfect for this window, which doesn't get very much sunlight through it to begin with.

3  Re: Fake-out Bettie Page Bangs Without the Commitment~ w/ tut in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by damn your eyes on: February 29, 2008 02:56:11 PM
I did it!!

My hair is really thick and coarse and curly and long... I usually straighten it like so:

Because I flat-iron my hair, I didn't want to cut bangs because I knew they woul dbe tedious upkeep. Then I found this tut and....

Looks good with hair up,

and with hat,

Here's a closeup of where hair meets fake bangs;

Almost the perfect crime. I would definately wear this bad boy under my hat or out at night, but probably not in broad daylight. There's the weensiest indication of color change and a bit of a bump, but I LOVELOVELOVE my false bangs!!

Thank you so much!

Thanks for the comments, guys.

You touch on a good point, fashionruler; I was kinda going for raw, "imperfect" feel... stuff for girls who color outside the lines, you know?  Tongue It is a slippery slope between 'edgy' and 'sloppy', so I value everyone's imput.

I had a photographer shoot new photos, and it's remarkable how different they make the product look... check it out:

5  Leather Biker Jacket Recon in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by damn your eyes on: November 15, 2007 08:24:38 PM
I found this leather jacket at Value Villiage for $19.99.

It fit great in the shoulders, and I loved the classic biker collar... but it was hideously 80s! The length was askward, and the sleeves were really wide in the upper arm. Belt loops!  Embarrassed

Don't I look happy?

So I took my sharp sewing scissors and taught it a lesson!

That's better! Cropping it meant replacing the zipper, but it was worth it!

I premiered it last month... went well with my Halloween costume!

Thanks for looking!

6  product opinions and pricing please! (img heavy) in Get Product and Website Opinions by damn your eyes on: October 25, 2007 10:52:36 AM
Hey gang,

Before I dive into the magical world of etsy, I'd like some of your opinions about my products and the prices I'm thinking of asking. I have seller's anxiety a la mode, so I would really appreciate some brutal honesty!

1) I make wallets. The exterior is leather with leather applique. The interior is interfaced cotton/broadcloth. Leather strap /w snap closure... zipper change purse... blah-de-blah.



I'm thinking $40 for the leather with applique, $35 for leather exterior with another form of embellishment (foiling/reverse applique), and $30 for non-leather exterior. What do you think?

2) I make coasters. Sets of 4, reversible leather. One side has reverse applique, the other just has detail stitching.

$30 - 40 bucks? I really don't know what leather coasters go for...

Thanks in advance to all feedback. xo

7  Reversible coasters! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by damn your eyes on: October 23, 2007 02:58:59 PM
Leather with reverse applique. I used bleach to paint on the fishbones. Just toilet duck and a paint brush!

They turned out reversible, which I actually didn't expect! The bottom of the coasters look good with just the stitching!

I made 4

Thanks for looking!

8  2 new leather wallets - opinions needed! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by damn your eyes on: October 17, 2007 09:48:21 AM
...and my wallet obsession is on temporary hiatus because I broke a needle, and am out of black bias tape.

This is a burgundy version of another raven wallet I made;

and this one I call "Lady".

The applique was meant to look like a woman's eye and the shadow under her nose. I showed my boyfriend and he said he thought it looked like a pregnant pterodactyl (as if he knows what that looks like!). He might have been just teasing me... but I'd like some opinions as to whether or not this is actually what it looks like.

Thanks for looking!

9  Leather wallet - undeadclothingco in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by damn your eyes on: October 11, 2007 06:21:13 PM
My second wallet ever, and I'm stupefied at how much I love it. The first one was a disaster to the extent that I won't even post it. Ugh, it makes my brain ache to think of how much time I wasted on that one...

Anyway, I made this wallet today.

Outside - black leather with gold and brown leather applique;

unsnapped; (ooh, kinky!)


Thanks for looking! xo

10  "Elegant Lady's Slippers" in Crochet: Completed Projects by damn your eyes on: October 02, 2007 09:19:06 AM
When my mom requested a pair of slippers for Christmas, I wanted to make her a very cute pair, but also practical and mature. I found this pattern entitled "Elegant Lady's Slippers" and I thought "Perfect!".

Here they are;

closeup of rosebud detail (which I emprovised. I got the leaf pattern from http://www.crochetdoilies.com/crochet_rose_applique.html)

Eerily enough, between the time I printed the free pattern (just last week) and today, acmoore.com appears to have gotten rid of it! The link I used  http://www.acmoore.com/Projects/yarnproject.asp?ID=633 no longer works.

Think she'll like 'em?
