1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Sewing Machine Cover on: April 06, 2012 07:28:20 AM

I recently made a sewing machine cover for a friend of mine. There are definitely some things I would do differently next time, but I'm learning as I go.

Naked Machine

Covered Machine

She was really pleased with it!

Thanks for looking!
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Plastic Bag Holder on: February 20, 2012 10:09:42 AM

I recently made this plastic bag holder out of some strips of fabric, elastic and some cute dotted ribbon. I have just started learning to sew and thought this would be a good first project.

Thanks for looking!  Smiley

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Sewing Machine Cover on: February 20, 2012 10:04:20 AM

I have just started learning to sew and this is the first thing I made without any guidance at all. It's a little too big for my machine but it does the trick.

I put a little slit in the top for the handle to fit through if need be. I also cut out a bit so there is space for the cables.

Thanks for looking!  Smiley

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Wire wrap pendant...kinda on: January 26, 2007 07:08:40 AM
Hi there,

I have just started playing around with wire and came up with the pendant below. Unfortunately the photo isn't the greatest. I used glass beads as well as faceted and round metal beads.


I think it's kind of neat. Let me know what you think.

Thanks for looking!
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Soldering at home on: January 14, 2007 05:21:39 PM
I'm looking into purchasing an inexpensive torch to solder silver (rings etc) with.

I have been reading different articles, and am still not sure what direction I should head in.

Any advice would be fantastic!!

8  CANADA / Ontario / lampwork classes on: October 01, 2006 04:14:59 PM
I did a quick search on the board and didn't see anything so I thought I would ask.

Anyone know of any good (and hopefully not super expensive) lampwork classes in toronto? My sister is interested in learning to make glass beads.

Any info would be great!

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / rose quartz flower pendant on: June 26, 2006 07:14:59 AM
Hi there,

I had my first chance to attempt setting a stone in class. I thought the whole process was kinda cool. I don't know how happy I am with this piece. I am a beginner and all but I messed up on the bail and the perfectionist in me isn't happy about it Smiley

The pendant is about 2 inches across, it's made of silver that I sandblasted.

I think it's kinda cute, I made it for my sister for her birthday.


Any thoughts would be great. Thanks for looking!

allo allo

This is the first silver pendant that I have made...I came up with the design quite quickly before class last week...I have decided that I looovvvveee working with metal and have enrolled in a college course to learn more.


I plan on getting a nicer chain...I had some of that chain around so I used it.

Feedback would be awesome!  Smiley
