11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / [ tea CD. ] +5pics. on: December 22, 2006 08:18:36 AM
first of all, I don't know if I'm really supposed to be posting this at all.  I know there are new rules about mix CDs in regards to swaps, but I thought I'd try.  If it's not supposed to be here, I'll take it down.

that said, now that I'm home from school, I've been working furiously on christmas gifts.  first on my crafting gift list are a bunch of things for my one friend who is in Vegas.  I made this 'tea' CD first.

here's the actual CD, assembled.  (ah, it looks really terrible in this picture, but whatev.)

on the actual disc, it reads:  

Have Yourself a Cup of Tea: a blend of tea related songs by our favorite artists.  

& here are the inserts that I whipped up in Photoshop


here's the CD in its packaging.  I took two pieces of tissue paper and cut open a tea bag and sealed the actual tea between the two sheets of paper.  I folded it in half and glued the sides, then slipped the CD inside, folded the top like a tea bag and then stapled on string with a tag I made in photoshop.
here's a shot for scale (& because it's silly.)

hope you all like it.  comments & critique appreciated.
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / [too long dress to little teal bag.] on: December 07, 2006 06:47:20 PM
so I had been working on my version of stopthefacades' Iron(III)Oxide
dress & I must really have needed sleep because it ended up being far too
long.  kept the scraps of the hem that I had to chop off and the bits from
around the 'pattern' and made them into a little bag.  mm, I hope this
qualifies as a reconstruction or else I've put it in the wrong board.

here's what I had to work with.  this might be a little confusing, but if you
look at the original dress, I think it'll make more sense.

so I decided to flip them over & use the 'band' as the top.
here's a detail shot of the handles.  I cut long strips of the fabric
that was left over after I had cut my pieces out and then braided them

this isn't my first project, but it's the first thing that i've
posted.   comments & critique appreciated.
13  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / 'Quilted' Blanket Questions. on: August 15, 2006 08:09:38 PM
All right, Im not sure if this is the right place to be asking this and I hope it doesnt irritate anybody, but Ive already gone through like 30+ pages of threads and I havent found an answer (perhaps because Im not sure what Im looking for).  But anyway

Im really interested in making this:

Or something similar.

Ive never quilted before.  Im not sure if this is even quilting at all, but this is the closest thing I can relate it to.  So Im hoping someone could help me.

I just want to make a light blanket/throw or something.  So I was thinking I wouldnt have to use batting, per se.  Maybe some other fabric, muslin?

Im not sure how to applique the pieces on?  And then how to stitch it together without the stitches transferring to the back of the blanket and having a 'stitched heart' on the back in thread.

Yeah, sorry for so many questions.  Its just I dont know anybody that I can ask and I figured you guys might have some suggestions.  Everyone here on craftster seems really helpful.  If this is in the wrong spot or if I'm just being completely oblivious, please delete.

Thanks in advance.
