21  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / "Modern Age" Purse on: November 21, 2004 11:18:50 PM
Ok, It's another book purse.. but this book was so perfect that I couldn't pass it up. I made this one a little differently than I ever have before.

the spine is down as usual in this picture.. has anyone ever seen a book with the cover printed that direction?

I was so excited about the whole direction of printing thing.. and the name.. and the colors!

I put elastic in the sides so that it will pull closed a bit instead of just hanging open this time

then i realized that it would probably pull away from the sides.. it was only glued on after all.
so i added screws.

just a random shot of the back
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Orange Rectangle hat on: November 06, 2004 06:05:24 PM
I know there is a thread for these but I can never find it so I'll just start a new one. Here is my version of that rectangle beanie that has the little tassels in the corner, modeled by my roomie!

23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Awesome Grey hat (from coat) on: November 06, 2004 06:02:28 PM
I posted a page of these hats before but I am so excited about this one that I have to start a new link! It's my newsboy hat, but this one is by far the best job of it that i've done, it looks much more professional, plus I made one of those tie flowers (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=5089.0) only first I made a tube of my fabric and gathered that instead of a tie.

My hat started out as this huge coat.. I actually only used the fabric from the front left side so I have quite a bit left

This is the finished hat modeled by my lovely roomie:

and this is a closeup of the flower
24  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / How do you do a longstitch? on: September 07, 2004 02:45:04 PM
I saw a book done with a "tradional longstitch" recently and have been looking everywhere to try to find out what that is.. does anyone know where I could find a tutorial for that or is someone willing to explain it? Thanks!
25  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Polka Dot Storage Dresser on: September 07, 2004 11:29:38 AM
I am an RA this year and one of my duties is making the lounge a nice place to be. I bought a super duper ugly dresser at value village (someone had painted it a very dark blue and done a very bad job of doing so) so my roommate and I bought some primer and some acrylic paints that match the slipcover things we put on the couches, and this is what we came up with!

this is it in its home

(it reminds us of hip-ified wonder bread)
26  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / spiral bound journal and planner on: August 20, 2004 03:31:55 PM
I finally went to Kinko's and got this done. I decided to make myself a planner this year and had big dreams for it but went with more simple in the end. The front and back are transparency scrapbooking sheet things from Michaels (the people at Kinko's put the back page on backwards.. oh well, ces't la vie!) and then it has dividers and 5 pages for each month. The pages are from a spongebob squarepants weekly planner from Michaels too..

I also have had this journal waiting to be bound for FOREVER but I had to punch the holes in the cover myself so I had them make a demo page and I used my dad's drill to make holes.. and then I had to put the spiral thing in myself because the girl didn't want to ruin it but it was kinda fun. It's from an old record album cover.

27  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / dangly heart chain earrings on: August 19, 2004 04:18:15 PM
these are the first earrings i have made like this.. i've seen them everywhere though and think they're adorable! I went to the local bead store and asked if they had chain by the foot but they didn't but they had really cheap chains so i just bought a few of those (i only needed two, turns out) and cut them up and put them on here. i got the charms at the same bead store.

28  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / bedskirt and pillowcases :) on: August 17, 2004 11:21:27 PM
I fairly recently painted my room green (you can see the wall a little..) and the other day I found those daisy sheets that match oh so well (I love daisies!) and then my mom found that striped fabric and decided I needed a bedskirt! She made the bedskirt, I made the pillowcases..

29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / simple pleated jean skirt on: August 17, 2004 06:46:23 PM
I know this is nothing new, but I'm really happy with how it turned out!

30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / a very versatile skirt on: August 13, 2004 11:01:50 PM
I made this skirt originally intending it to be worn the way it is in the first picture, but then discovered that it has more ways to be worn.. the last one is very 80's-esque, I think..
