Very nice.  I have that pattern, and I have been meaning to try it.  I love the undie fabric, too.  So cute.

Gamestop and Software Etc. sell the old game controllers.  My husband runs a Gamestop, and I think he sells them for around $2.

That utterly rocks!  I'm also seeing knitting needle holders made from that....

I am going to try to make a bag from tyvek.  Ugly as they are, I need a fanny pack for Veterinary Tech. school, to hold random medical supplies.  I'm thinking tyvek would be good, because the animals can't tear it, and if it gets nasty from the pig farm, no great loss...

Thanks, everyone. Smiley 

It's a very tactile piece.  Definitely begs to be touched, and is meant to be. Smiley  The beads and coils are at differening heights, so I dont' know if that would work well for a stepping stone.  But that is definitely a cool idea.

I think my neighbor was an interior decorator, because she always seemed to be throwing away really nice fabric.  She would throw away half-bolts of $25.00+ per yard fabric, because it had tiny little imperfections, (that could easily be cut around).  I miss living near her!  Now I have to pay for all my fabric.  Grin 
26  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Elephant box on: June 01, 2004 07:20:33 AM
I have had this box for a long time, (over half my life!).  It used to have a piece of coloured glass with painted on flowers on the top.  But, my husband dropped the box, and the glass broke, (grrr), so I was left with a naked little wooden box. 

I cut up some small pictures from an old calendar, and mod podged them on to it.  The ribbon on the bottom of the box is hot glued on.  I got lucky, and the ribbon remnant was *exactly* the right size to go around the bottom of the box, both length and width.  I found a little elephant charm while I was walking one day, and added it to the top center of the box.  I think it came out pretty cute!  (In case you can't tell, I love elephants!)

I took a pottery class about 2 years ago, and this is one of the pieces I made.  It's my most favorite, and probably the only thing I made that came out halfway decent.  Wink

It was made by rolling out a flat slab of clay, and attaching coils and beads of clay to it.  It was allowed to dry, then fired, and then painted with acrylic paints, in various shades of blue, purple, and shimmery glitter paint!  The picture doesn't show the glitter at all, which is very sad.  It is far more shimmery and glittery in real life.     

It is about the size of a piece of printer paper, (8.5 x 11 inches, and about an inch high), and is HEAVY.  I had an idea to hang it on the wall, but it easily weighs 10 lbs, and I'm afraid it will break if I try to hang it.  Maybe one day I will have it professionally framed or something.

Very nice looking bag.  It looks really well made, so yeah, don't sell yourself short.  It is way better than I was able to do at 14!  The one and only bag I made in home ec at 14 fell apart. Tongue

I'm not familiar with the band, but I LOVE the animals, especially the elephant.  Very nice.

Here are some that I have made.  The first two are true to the original Jordy pattern.  The last is made with the same technique, but measures 14 x 12 inches.
