1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Ring & Bracelet Display on: January 22, 2011 11:49:51 AM
I always make something cheap to take with me for those people that make impulse buys, so I picked up some wire at the hardware store and pulled my box of beads out and made some quick rings and since I like to display my things vertically so I have more room on my tables and they look less cluttered, this is what I came up with...

It's an old Chutes & Ladders board, covered with left over Christmas wrapping paper, and the bees are just some cute thumb tacks I picked up. I poked them through and then used my jewelry pliers to twist the backs around so they're not sharp and are sure to stay on.

And for a bangle and bracelet display I picked up a mug tree at Goodwill for $2 yesterday, and it's going to work perfectly...

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Buttercup Bags on: March 13, 2009 04:45:51 PM
I made these purses from the Buttercup Bag tutorial.

This one was for my last swap partner...

I've started using interfacing on the exterior of the bag and now I think its my favorite pattern ever! It always comes out so perfect!

I also made a matching checkbook cover and travel tissue pouch to go with it

I love this one too, not sure who it's for yet, my oldest daughter will probably beg for it lol...

This one is mine...

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Grocery totes on: September 05, 2008 04:46:52 PM
Today is my mother-in-law's birthday so I made her a set of grocery totes...

I realize they dont look like they are very big laying there like that so I filled one up. It held 10 boxes of crackers, cocoa mix, Hamburger Helper, and such

I think shell be super pleased. Monday she was talking about the ones I gave her several months ago, but they were the ones modeled after plastic grocery bags and theyre not great for carrying boxed foods, so these will be much better for her! I bought the fabric at a Dollar General store, it was 2 yards for $5, who would have thought that they'd be selling fabric there!!! Now I need to get off my butt and make myself some.
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Pre-made screen? on: July 06, 2008 09:43:39 AM
I want to silk screen some t-shirts and have a pretty simple design, but I'd like to be able to send the picture, which is words and a very simple image, to someone and have the screen made and shipped to me so all I have to do is put the image on the t-shirts. Is there anywhere that offers this service?
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Fireman shirts for my rugrats... on: July 01, 2008 12:32:49 PM

I tried making a stenciled shirt last week with contact paper and it didn't turn out the greatest. I ended up going back around the edge with white paint to make it look right because it was sorta a big blob. So I did some research on here and found out that freezer paper works better than contact paper so I went to the grocery store and bought some to experiment!

Yesterday my 4 year old wore a solid white t-shirt and I knew it wouldnt stay white for long so this morning when I pulled it out of the washer I decided to make him a fireman shirt. While it was in the dryer I went searching for firefighter silhouettes and drew one based on one on a friend's MySpace page. If Im going to do much stenciling Im going to have to invest in a printer to save myself a load of time!!!

I dont think it turned out bad and the lines came out much cleaner with the freezer paper. My son is going to be thrilled when he sees the finished result

And since I put so much time into the drawing I couldnt justify throwing away the center I cut out so I used it and made a star burst one for my oldest daughter

Them both together

Now Im totally going to get grief for only making 2 of the 5 kids shirts so I have to go dig through some dresser drawers to find more solid shirts!!!
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Nursing Bracelet on: June 24, 2008 12:46:10 PM
One of the ladies on the fire department with my hubby is due with her first baby next month. She's planning on breastfeeding and has asked me a ton of questions so I made her a nursing reminder bracelet to help her remember which side she last nursed on and at what time...

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Apples Knitting Bag on: June 18, 2008 05:54:46 PM
I made this for a swap and absolutely loved it! I don't even knit, but I really wanted to keep it lol. It's a basic square bottomed bag with a full pocket on the front that I divided to hold the knitting needles, based loosely on the Oh Fransson tutorial...
