1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Origami Bookmark Dolls on: August 06, 2006 10:21:20 AM
Is anyone else fascinated by these:

I think they're called shiori ningyo in Japanese. I kept finding them in second hand stores and was intrigued. I started making them without any real instructions on how to do so, just copying what I'd found.
Recently I got a book on them, but the book is in Japaense so it's a little hard to follow, but not impossible.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Freeform lace scarves on: August 05, 2006 09:16:43 AM
Here are a couple of "freeform" lace scarves I made with a bunch of ribbons and dissolvable fabric stabilizer on my sewing machine:

It's a pretty easy technique if anyone's interested. I keep thinking of using this technique to make fairy wings or the front panel of an Elizabethan costume, or maybe lace sleeves for a funky renaissance dress...
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Micro-macrame necklace on: August 05, 2006 09:10:46 AM
I make a lot of micro-macrame stuff, here's one of my necklaces:

 and here are a few watchbands:

I started doing micro-macrame about 3 years ago - I just figured if it could be done on a large scale (like plant holders and owls) I could do it on a really small scale. Apparently, it used to be known as a lace form before it became popular in the 60's.
