1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / New purse recon... on: November 05, 2012 12:27:02 PM
I bought a new purse today but it didn't have enough personality for my taste. I'm terribly picky about purses, and I'm a cheapskate, so it's really hard to find one I like. I liked the inside of this purse but I wasn't crazy about the flap. I took the flap off but the magnetic clasp was still on the front of the purse. I used the lining from the inside of the flap to make a flower and I put the magnet from the flap on the back of the flower. The button I had in my stash already. The best part was the only sewing that I had to do was on the flower!




Thanks for looking!
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Nursery wall art- owls on: November 16, 2010 01:21:18 PM
I made these for my son's nursery today. I got the frames plain and painted them, the owls are 3D scrapbooking stickers.

The rest of the nursery is here if anyone wants to see it :https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=364908.0

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Our woodsy nursery! on: November 16, 2010 01:15:47 PM
We're expecting our first baby any day now, I put the finishing touches on his nursery today and decided it was time to take some pictures! We are renters so I tried to limit the number of holes in the walls. I used a lot of vinyl decals and they were the jumping off point for the woodsy theme. I used some of the decals on the crib and dresser too. The nursery also is our guest room, so that's why there's a bed in there taking up space, lol.

4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Baby name letters on: July 30, 2010 01:33:46 PM
These are sure popular! They are so easy though, so I can see why Smiley
I made these for my pumpkin due in November. His nursery is a woods theme and these fit right in with the wall decals I bought (http://www.roommatespeelandstick.com/walldecals/woodland-animals-wall-stickers.aspx)

Close ups:

I used foam letters I found at Hobby Lobby for 99 cents. I was going to use wood but they didn't have all the letters I needed, and the wood letters were about $2.50 per letter! These did take two coats of paint, and because they were white I had to darken the paint a bit more to get the end result I wanted. In real life the yellows aren't quite as bright as the picture portrays.

Thanks for lookin'!

5  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Moon onsesie on: July 14, 2010 07:04:13 AM
I bought the big Sublime Stitching book when I got pregnant so I could start on a bunch of onesies. I shortly realized that one of my pregnancy symptoms was total loss of patience! I managed to embroider this one and I painted the rest (you can see the painted onesies here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=353785.0)

I was so happy to finally buy this book, it has some awesome patterns in it!
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Hand painted and embroidered onesies- img heavy! on: July 14, 2010 06:59:45 AM
I'm expecting a boy in November, so I painted up a bunch of onesies for him. I made some girly ones too for a cousin who is having a girl soon.

These are all from the SUBLIME STITCHING: Hundreds of Hip Embroidery Patterns book.

The fish and snowman are my design, the robot I got of off someone's blog, I can't find the link right now for it.


These onesies I just stitched around the collars, one I did the sleeves too. The colors came out odd, there are two with blue stiching, one is orange, and the other is a combination of purple, pink, and light green.

This is one I just freehanded with flowers.

Thanks for looking!
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Thanksgiving onesie... on: November 11, 2009 11:43:50 AM

I have a friend who is due a couple days before Thanksgiving. I've seen other variations on this onesie, here is my attempt. It's done with cheap ol' acrylic fabric paint.
I had considered embroidering this, but I wasn't in the mood to sit for a few hours and do it. Painting took me barely 30 minutes!
Thanks for looking Smiley
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Recipe card holder on: June 09, 2008 11:13:12 AM

I've been wanting to make a recipe card holder for a while and this idea came to me today. For the base I used one of those little drink mix tubs (like you get from Crystal Light mixes) and two packing peanuts to hold the stem in place. I wrapped some floral wire around the top and made a couple loops to hold the card. Then I glued fake ivy leaves around the base as well as some flat marbles. Lastly I glued in the stem to make sure it would be secure. I recommend applying the hot glue to the leaves and not directly on the packing peanuts, they melt!
This goes well with my red and black themed kitchen Smiley
If anyone is wondering, I found the cute recipe cards at Target in their dollar bins, and they were on sale for 25 cents for a pack of 60! Needless to say I bought 4 packs Wink

9  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / "Big girl panties" sign on: May 13, 2008 10:55:34 AM
I made this sign for my study buddy in nursing school. We just had our final yesterday and we both passed with A's! (Yeah, I know, gloat much? lol)

Anyway this was our motto while going through school:

After I took this picture I added some glitter at the tops of the panties and on the little purple dots. I bought a plain board at Wal Mart and painted it with acrylic paint.
Thanks for looking Smiley
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / An organizer for scrub pockets...(a.k.a. pocket pal, pocket pouch) on: March 28, 2008 01:55:45 PM
If anyone has had to wear scrubs for work you know what a pain it is to find anything in your pockets. As a nursing student I have tons of stuff in my pockets, which makes it even harder. One of my teachers made one of these and I studied it a while and figured out how she did it. This is my first trial.




"Nurse Zita" is what my family calls me. Zita is my nickname and when they call to mooch some free medical advice they say, "I have a Nurse Zita question for you...". 
I think if I make another of these I'll make the front with two rows of pockets, a taller one for pens and a shorter one for other stuff like alcohol swabs or whatever.
Thanks for looking!
