11  Vintage Button Scull NetBook Cozy in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kiwiblue on: November 16, 2009 08:40:25 PM

 Iv been looking all over to find a netbook cozy  that I liked ..Never really found anything exciting . Im ashamed to admit I drag my netbook everywhere I go .

I made this Button Scull for the button chalenge but never decided what to do with it and I did not read all the rules until after I finished it . You had to use it on somthing already made.

Even though I suck when it comes to sewing with a macheine , its the same thing that happens when I try to fish I end up with a big  ball of tangled mess ..

I thought how bad can it be its just a big padded envalope .So this is what I ended up with .Even though I don't sew I have a collection of fabric (Dizzy)  I had this Beautiful Grayish purple embossed velvet I finally got to use ..

I like how it turned out but am wondering If I need to embellish it more on the front
Opinions Are Greatly Appreciated . As long as its not about my grammar  Smiley Thanks for looking Arther

13  Re: Recon fabric scraps and beads lampshade in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by kiwiblue on: August 31, 2009 01:57:48 PM
I love it!!! Cheesy Now you can always look at those beautiful fabrics! And I always wanted an Eiffeltower lampbase, I feel rather jealous.

I am a bit confused about the beads though. Are they hanging from the rims of the frame or is there some kind of platter beneath it? I don't really see how they are attached in the pictures.

Thank you !

I started a Eiffel tower collection after I was moving to Philadelphia from Seattle  My 7 year old nephew was very upset  told me please don't move to Philadelphia there are gay people there and all they do is sit under the Eiffel tower and eat cheese.
So now everyone gets me Eiffel towers and cheese... Oh and I'm gay so that made it even more funny..

14  Recon fabric scraps and beads lampshade in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by kiwiblue on: August 29, 2009 03:14:15 PM
Had lots of remnants since I hate to get rid of scraps.. Lately I am trying not to buy any new stuff just use what I have .

I took the beads off the frame on the bottom of this lampshade
Then used some big glass beads I never knew what to do with to replace them . I also used them for a finial on top.

Then I hit up me fabric stash .I used  lite on one side and dark on the other  so I had a sort of dimmer just turn it to the shade. It helps when my eyes get all blurry from beading to long ..

I left the lining in the shade and used an exato to cut the outside panels of gold fabric out .then just used liquid stitches permanent glue stuff to attach the new panels..
buying shades at places like Ross is much cheaper than buying just a frame at the craft shop . Not having to do the lining yourself is awesome .

I'm ashamed to admit It also is my pin cushion .

Thanks for looking ...Art

17  Up Cycle 1 Dollar Cookie Plate Clock in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by kiwiblue on: March 18, 2009 07:40:56 PM

 I found this at my favorite thrift store for 1 buck.. Its the bottom plate of one of those layered cookie plate things the top plate had a big chip out of it ..

So I  finally got around to making a clock out of it .
The hole was a bit to small so I took the dremel to it took about 5 min to get it all put together ... I think Its my new favorite ..

Comments welcome Smiley

19  Learning To Sew With Hot Men !! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kiwiblue on: February 07, 2009 03:29:13 PM
My Friend is helping me use a sewing machine . Ive always done everything by hand .
 Every time I have tyred It always ended up just life when I try to fish,  big ball of tangled mess.

These are my first  project I still didn't measure anything.  I did pad and line them I was not ready for buttonholes .
 I used A old microfiber Shirt and pocket to line the Cowboy glasses case .

 the lines are a bit wonky but I'm working on it Smiley

20  Doller Store Bird Ornament Makeovers in Winter Holidays by kiwiblue on: December 01, 2008 11:19:17 AM
I found some glass bird ornaments at the dollar store I was surprised to find they were thick glass and really nice quality .

I liked them but I was not in love with the feathers
I started to play around and this is the result .

I used  metal leaf glitter wire crystals feathers  .


What do you think Huh

Blue My Helper  she cant control herself when I use string wire or feathers .
