1  Re: Free People Knock-Off Cowboy Booties in Shoes: Completed Projects by trinashere on: November 27, 2011 08:45:46 AM
I've got a version of my own. These boots were one of the only things my mom saved from the 70s, but I've never worn them - they just don't work with me style. But I couldn't throw them away either! This was the perfect solution.

2  A Christmas Gift for Me - Holly Golightly Sleep Mask in Completed Projects by trinashere on: December 23, 2010 02:35:58 PM
I've been wanting one of these forever and realized yesterday that I had everything I needed to make Holly Golightly's sleep mask from Breakfast at Tiffany's. Now I'll feel glamorous even when I'm sleeping.

And of course, a gratuitous, not-at-all-flattering action shot:

Merry Christmas to me!

Inspired, I made a set of these for Christmas for the graphic designer at the magazine I work at. They're from a newer version of Photoshop - here's the linkon Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/93255902@N00/5261264602/

And with Craftster image hosting:

Merry Christmas!

6  I'm having the hardest time with my vintage machine - help! in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by trinashere on: March 20, 2010 09:19:36 AM
I really love my vintage machine, except I'm having such a hard time using it!

Ever since I picked it up at a flea market, I've been trying in vain to find a manual for it, especially since I'm not really used to some of its controls:

I haven't found any information on it online at all. I think it might be one of what people call a "branded" Japanese machine, but again, I have no clue really! Here's some pictures of the company and model names:

Any help would seriously be appreciated!

7  The "I'm Always Awake" Sleep Mask in Completed Projects by trinashere on: January 05, 2008 11:36:17 AM
Since I was a little girl, I adored Holly Golightly's sleep mask in Breakfast at Tiffany's. I wanted to try to make one but slippery satin scares me, so I nabbed a pre-bought sleep mask we had used for a prop in a photo shoot at work:


(Pretty plain, huh?)

I spent a half day, mixed with plenty of felt and tiny little stitches, and came up with this funky, fun and semi-glamorous sleep mask.

Plus, it looks really funny on people while they're wearing it (gratuitous, yet necessary, action shot below).


Now my eyes are always open, even when I'm asleep!

8  Zombie Birthday Cake for My Main Man in Dessert by trinashere on: October 19, 2007 05:36:34 AM
So my husband loves zombies and I love all things Halloween. Since his birthday is October 18, I decided to combine both or our loves and make him a zombie themed birthday cake.

I started out with this recipe: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Black-Magic-Cake/Detail.aspx. It made a super sticky moist cake which I would recommend to everyone. I filled it with cherry filling so that when you cut the cake it's like it's bleeding. I tinted icing and coconut green, then frosted the top and covering it with the coconut to make a grass like setting for my cemetery. The gravestones are Pepperidge Farms Milano cookies iced with gray icing (I took store bought black and mixed it with some white) and black gel piping to make the letters "RIP" on each. Finally, the arms I bought at a local craft store, then Sharpied green and drew stitches on. There's also some red gel blood covering each.

Altogether it was a pretty simple cake, but I think it turned out rather well.

Here's a close-up. It's not the best, but unfortunately it's the best one I took.

All I have left to say is .... BRAINS!

9  Cloth and Felt Halloween Wreath (pic chubby) in Halloween Decor and Parties by trinashere on: September 24, 2007 07:38:16 AM
I absolutely love Halloween, like most Craftsters do. I wanted a wreath for on my front door, so this is what I spent my weekend on:

I started with a simple circle of fabric, then cut a hole in the middle and stuffed it with shredded shopping bags. All of the figures are made from felt, with some extra details, then tacked on. To finish it, I wrapped some black tulle around and tacked it in place.

And here are the detail shots of each creature:

The vampire has a red lace cravat.

The bat's eyes are made from an old pair of earrings.

The spider's legs were some old bangle bracelets that I cut open and wrapped with black yarn. His eyes are also old stud earrings/

The skeleton is pretty straightforward.

The witch is my favorite. She has yarn hair, french knot warts on her nose and chin, and creepy eyelashes that I scored at a thrift store. Her hat is embellished with an old earring that looks like a moon and a star.

Thanks for looking and Happy Halloween! Comments are appreciated.

10  The Magic Felt Toilet in CHALLENGE 18 ENTRIES by trinashere on: May 02, 2007 04:03:49 PM
"Why is this toilet magic?" you ask. Well, for starters, it's made with glittery white felt - glitter is always magical, isn't it?

Additionally, it's the only toilet in the world who's pee, poo and 2,000 Flushes Blue come alive!

Yes, the lid on the seat and the tank both lift up. The tank is empty (besides Mr. 2,000 Flushes) and can hold other magical treasures.

I tried to think of the most ridiculous thing I could make out of felt and this was it. Hope you enjoy!
