1  Sexy cowboy tobacco pouch/wrap in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Luinecu on: August 04, 2010 07:01:02 AM
I've been sewing a lot recently.. Not got around to posting most of it, but I absolutely had to share the tobacco wrap I made to keep all my rolling tobacco stuff in one place. I was getting pretty peed off with my previous method of storage, that being the chuck it into the abyss that is my handbag method. Very frustrating.

So.. own design, didn't so much plan it as had a vague idea of how big I wanted it, the whole thing changed as I went along.

Of course, I just HAD to use the sexy cowboy fabric I had knocking around from making a friend's birthday pressie last year (year before?). I could seriously find a use for a whole bolt of this fabric Cheesy

For the inside, I chose polkadots, because I'm totally obsessed.

It's about the size of a standard size packet of tobacco, but holds about 1/3-1/2 a pack. The little zippy pouch fits perfectly and keeps the baccy from getting everywhere (which it always did when I was keeping it in the packets it came in.

I'm rather chuffed with the paper holder pouch.. I used my buttonhole setting to create a mouth on it, so you can pull out a paper without having to fiddle with the little cardboard pockets.

Filters just go in the pouch, which is closed with a cute button on some decorative (and functional) elastic.

Finally! Here are the pictures from the most wonderful Clarity! I feel so guilty for posting photos late, but not only was I away for a few days, but when I got back the internet was down And my camera had died!!!! I'm not having a good couple of months for technology, I've had my laptop, ipod and camera all fry on me, it's not fair!!!

These are the pictures she (most kindly!) took, cheers sweetheart!

First we have the biggest item! clarity had warned me one of my items would be VERY pink, and she wasn't kidding! She'd made me this utterly fantastic pink sparkley bag, inspired by Holly's party hat, with a sequined bracelet to match! She also included a very kitch (perfect!!) pearl necklace with a rubber dinosaur charm, I'm in love!!

Next I unwrapped this darling mug with Cat on it! It fits in perfectly with all my other animal themed mugs, and I think it will be my new favourite for drinking green tea (I'd hate to stain the inside with all the coffee I drink!)

After that, a very innonvative foam pincushion, with a little bathtub on top! It made me giggle, it's wonderful!

The next item blue me away! She's aimed to incorporate the feel of breakfast at tiffany's with my own personal style (using my wist for refrence) and I think she did a pretty good job! There was also a simple pearl necklace not pictured here, perfect for wearing every day.

Then if that wasn't enough, she made me this AMAZING wallet to encorporate the poster 'Jets to Brazil' which is on Holly's wall, which happens to also be the name of one of my favourite bands, who got their name from the film!! (check them out!!) It's just too good for words this item, I love it so much!

She's made me this lovely candle holder too, and included a red candle to "burn away those mean reds"!! Very thoughtful and clever!

And last but not least, a set of laminated bookmarks! Very handy, I must say!!

Thank you Clarity! You've been a wonderful partner, and I hope you had as much fun crafting as I did!!

4  Rockabilly polkedot mini skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Luinecu on: May 19, 2008 01:53:23 AM
Another crazy short skirt for you here.. For those of you that saw my Harry Potter mini (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=240660.msg2650240#msg2650240) I'm sorry to report that the cotton was not such a great bargin after all, and all the colours faded Cry I'd even put it on a low wash for safety! Oh well..

This one is made out of the bottom half of a pair of jeans my housemate chopped into shorts. The spotty fabric is bought (sorry hard-core reconstructors!!), and incase you can't tell, it is so short, even my boyfriend (nautorious for trying to get me out in public with my knickers almost showing Roll Eyes ) said "I think you should.. er, wear tights with that one" !!! Cheesy

Mission accomplished! Haha.

Excuse the bad action shot, it was 1 am when I finished, and I just *had* to get pictures right away!

Yes, my zipper sucks. I don't have a zipper foot Embarrassed

Original idea & tutorial by ViolentJayne

C & C would be lovely Kiss

5  Piratey Rat Hammock!! Edit: Action pic!! in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by Luinecu on: April 21, 2008 12:31:49 PM
This hammock is going straight to my friend Katie, and her 7 beautiful ratties!

It wasn't hard to make at all, and a great deal more successful then the one of similar design I made for my three (rather heavy Tongue) ferrets. Although they've still worn the thing through, I think it's about time I went fabric shopping with them in mind!!

The inside is lined with fleece, and the tabs are of a strong woven ribbon which should hold us, since her darlings aren't overly enthusiastic chewers.

I'll be sure to update with action shots as soon as I can! Wink

Any C&C are very welcome. Smiley

Edit: Action pic!!

This little missus (Gabby) is loving her new bed and demanding more!

6  Elphie (From the books/musical Wicked) Keyring in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Luinecu on: April 21, 2008 12:22:19 PM
A (very wonderful and generous Tongue) friend and myself are going to see Wicked in London next Saturday for her bithday. This little figure is part of her birthday gift (being a poor university student, I'm having to raid my stash and go handmade this year Cheesy). She's a little messy up close, please excuse the fluff! I was out of sand paper Roll Eyes

I used Corrie's clay bride as inspiration, thank you.

8  MCR Bottlecap belt! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Luinecu on: February 26, 2008 07:18:43 AM
I made this belt for my My Chemical Romance fanatic best buddy. She hasn't got it yet, but I sure hope she likes it, I was tempted to keep it for myself!

I think I can see myself making many more of these; I've had my housemates collecting bottle caps since the start of the year so I have no shortage of supplies!  Wink They think I'm mad...

The caps are attached to the belt by rounded buttons glued to the cap insides by epoxy glue, then sewn on. The eyelets were attached using my new eyelet setter; which I've been using for every project I can shake it at as of late Cheesy

The images were printed off, cut out into circles, and then PVA glued to the tops of the caps. Several layers of PVA were added to form a protective coat over the pictures, letting each layer dry completely in between coats.

A close up!

And an action shot!! Whee Cheesy

C & C welcome!

I thought I'd do a hair timeline since I'm thinking about having a chop soon Smiley

The blue I currently use is Manic Panic (After Midnight Blue, Shocking Blue, or Black and Blue); it's the best I've come across in the UK, having tried the supermarket stuff, Directions and Stargazer in the past.

As for what's next, I was thinking about this cut: http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k163/luinecu2/Original.jpg
Look! I even Photoshopped it onto my head!!! Cheesy http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k163/luinecu2/Shortblue.jpg
