1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / adorable bubble-skirted jumper on: May 26, 2007 07:56:56 PM
i'm so proud, this is my first wearable item i've made from scrap Smiley
its about time, i've been sewing for years..i'm just lazy.

this was my inspiration:

i didnt use her tutorial though. i just made it up as i went along.

(before i added the straps)

with the straps....

the back

the buttons are functional. i kind of sewed the holes in the wrong direction, but thats alright lol

i got so many compliments on it when i wore it to school, i think i might make another one in red.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / tape alternatives for painted walls on: April 01, 2005 01:54:25 PM
i just painted my room and i have some paintings on canvases that i've done that i would like to hang up in my room. the paint i used is latex and i tested out some tape to see if it would peel off the paint and it did. i dont want to nail my paintings to the walls because, thats just a pain in the ass  Tongue so i need an alternative to tape that won't peel off the paint and won't leave residue. any ideas?
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / stenciled pillow on: May 23, 2004 03:20:30 PM
hey there... i made a pillow! my very first pillow..aww. its not quite done. i need to get more stuffing, then sew it back up.

front- it says "shattered dreams" in white. i used letter stencils and fabric paint to do it. another first attempt there. i thought it needed a little something so i added a pocket below it. why i put a pocket on a pillow? who knows.

and thats the back. the skelliton is made out of felt. *nods*

not too shabby, eh?

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / messenger bag & 1 jordy on: May 23, 2004 03:10:23 PM
i've been lurking craftster for a while and finally decided to make an account... and this is my first post! alright...

so let me introduce myself. I'm Michelle...15 years old. I just got my own sewing machine last month so i'm new to making purses and such.

anyways, on to the good stuff.

my first attempt at making anything with fabric is thing handy dandy messenger bag!

it was just supposed to be a purse, but i turned out to be a little bigger than what i had wanted, but it looks rather nifty!

((inside)) the interior is a black and white checker pattern, and so is the strap.

and for my first attempt at a jordy, here she is...

the smiley face is felt.

i put the lining in wrong... but it didnt make much difference to me.

lets hope the pictures work..heh   Grin
