To tell you the truth, I wasn't sure what this was before I opened it (but I did suspect it was most likely SC).

(I supplied the pic of Lexi)

A small knit (?) bag with a vial of glitter (I'm already using the bag to hold some of my Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Oils I got the other day).

Other that clothing, I usually hit thrifts for crafting supplies, which I got some from yogirly87. Along with a cami shirt (which I didn't get a pic of), were a pink & white "gumball" bracelet, pieces of fabric, & some beads.

14  Thrift Swap Leftovers in CHALLENGE 2 ENTRIES by ForevrBee on: June 24, 2005 05:24:46 AM
I'm the first one, no suprise, but anyway...

What I had was originally was a "leftover" orange shirt from a thrift-related swap, along with some jeans with small hole in the knee also found at Goodwill

The shirt, I cut off the collar, added ribbons as straps & also at the shoulders. I also sliced the sleeves down the side.

(Not a good pic with the sun)

I also cut off a section of the shirt & added an "undershirt" (also a thrift store find), sewn to the shoulders.

I did something with the "Abercrombie & Fitch" logo on the shirt covering up (to the best of my abilities) with a "bloody Rainbow" ( I got it from a picture mag) & added Iron-on letters.

For the cuffs, I sewed them together for a "fingerless glove" look

For the jeans, I took what I cut off from the shirt, patched up the hole in the knee

& just simply covered the other knee with another piece of the fabric & drew a Keith Haring- inspired angel on it.

So here's me "modeling" the stuff

(Again, not very good pics. I took better of the dog)

Any way the jeans were about 4-5.99 & the A&F was about 2.99. The "Undershirt", I can't really remember how much it was, only I got it super cheap (Goodwill had a "4 for the price of one" type of deal when it came to shirts one day, I guess). Minus the Ribbons, Acrylic paint & the iron-ons, it came up to around $8-9.

15  Anime Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by ForevrBee on: June 11, 2005 05:21:15 PM
I didn't see one started, so I began one.
With what I got from Marikit

A "cat-head" pillow with the "frustrated" mark (the Cross-like marking).

& A purse, but I don't really know who exactly the face is (I'm thinking either Kurtz from FMP or Allen from Escaflowne {Two of my fave animes}, but I could be wrong).

I now have my stuff from gollygweez. She had asked what styles & like & whatnot, I'm pretty eclectic, but with more of a rocker edge.

A shirt with little stars & a gun at the sleeve (there also Stars are  on the back, but the pic was screwy looking)

Along with jewelry consisting of winged hearts. the pin has bat wings, while the bracelet (I think that's what it is) has angel wings.

18  Re: classic movie ATC swap gallery in The Swap Gallery by ForevrBee on: April 23, 2005 05:19:12 AM
Got mine from IQJones yesterday. She made a set of 6 themed on the Breakfast Club, All the Main characters (Andy, Brian, Allison, Claire & Bender along with Vernon & the Janitor

I kinda feel bad, because I struggled to come up with an idea for this swap, finally camp up with one (on the mail-by duedate, natch) & have to kinda start over after what I had was a bit too big for the dimentions of an ATC. But I'll be sure to get it completed & mailed by next week.

19  Beach Ball Pillow- with Somewhat of a tutorial in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by ForevrBee on: April 15, 2005 02:47:10 PM
An inpulsive trip to Barnes & Noble scored me Todd Oldham's new book "Handmade Modern" Some of the "pillow" projects look especially pleasing to me, So much so that I tried the Beach Ball pillow on my own.
I took a scan of the template in the book

I resized it to 13 1/2" in length to make the 12 in ball
You can also have it at 15 1/2" for a 14in. or 17 1/2' for a 16in.
Cut out 6 pieces of fabric to the shape of the template (The book had wool felt, I used old jeans & some tweed like pants)
Make half the ball by stitching together three pieces , repeat with the other three, then stitch both halves together, leaving a 4 in. space to turn it right-side-in & stuff with poly-fill
With this as the finished product:

This is just my example, doing it in my own way, also hand-stitching it while the book of course, did it by machine. The book has more detailed instructions on the pillow.

Completely unrelated, a friend of mine is gettin' hitched next month and I've been wondering what I could make for her...I'm getting ideas Smiley Somebody do a "Sex Toys Part 2" for all of us who missed it!

Go right ahead if you want to (when, of course, after 4/27 at least). Meanwhile, while I got my swap stuff from crafty_dame ,I need to get my stuff together on who's sent what, Who's gotten & the sudden trace of flaker-itis.
 Edit: Here it is, or at least most of it in the form of a scan
