1  Hand Made Birthday Card (Image Heavy) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by adadancer13 on: July 20, 2007 11:04:33 PM
I made this for my friend's sweet sixteen. It has two layers. I used card stock, origami paper, sandpaper, and transparencies for overhead projectors. I also used stickers for the letters.

2  Five headbands in one! (picture heavy) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by adadancer13 on: July 20, 2007 10:49:18 PM
I thought to myself: "Why buy a headband for each outfit when I can make one for each and still only need one headband AND recycle at the same time?"

Plain plastic headband from Target:

I sewed tubes or sleeves to go over the plain headband. I used scrap fabric, old ribbon, and pajamas I rescued from the Goodwill bag which my mom keeps hiding from me.

The sleeves on the headband:

3  My barrettes were too boring! (un poco foto gordo) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by adadancer13 on: July 20, 2007 10:39:20 PM
So, I bought these barrettes at Target and they were so boring. I only had twenty minuets before I had to leave for a party. What was a crafty girl to do?

All of them together:

I just super-glued scraps of ribbon, googly eyes, buttons, and rhinestones on the clips and I was ready to go!

4  Unique Scrap Scarf for my best friend's sweet 16 in Knitting: Completed Projects by adadancer13 on: July 20, 2007 10:32:22 PM
What do you get for a bright and cheery environmentally conscious best friend who's always cold for her sweet sixteen? You knit her a scarf made from all those stubborn scraps of fabric you can't seem to use! (I made my little brother model it!)

All I did was tie fairly long and thin scraps of fabric, ribbon, and even Christmas garland*, plastic streamers*, and caution tape together*. I knitted using size 17 needles and only seven stitches. A gauge is not necessary because the differences in materials causes it to be uneven. Don't worry if it is lumpy or uneven. This makes every scarf different and gives it some personality! I tried to make a pattern, but one could not see the difference in stitches.

*I only used these materials at the ends of the scarf because I did not want the scarf to be to itchy or to poke her neck.
