21  some of my summer projects(incredibly pic heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by raycheezy on: September 19, 2007 04:09:22 PM
The title basically explains it. Goes from packaging tape to cloth to fused plastic bags.

   I hope you like 'em! They're in order from when I made them, I think.

22  Cutie Vegetable Doll(pic heavy)*new state fair pic!* in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by raycheezy on: September 19, 2007 04:03:00 PM
I made this in sewing 2, and yet I crocheted it. Each appendage is a vegetable, and the dress is sewn with a corset back. I've been working on it for about 3 weeks in class, and I spent a weekend crocheting the pieces. Hope you like!

The pictures don't do it justice.
*EDIT* Here's a new picture, with the first place award I won at the state fair. I won first place in "Hand Crocheted Items 14-17 y-o". I know it's not that great of an achievement, but I'm excited Smiley

23  a beautiful disaster in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by raycheezy on: August 11, 2007 02:52:57 PM
I originally intended this to be from all one fabric. Of course, this is my first shirt from scratch, my second outside sewing class. I should've expected this to happen. Then it was too small, so I added the side strips in a contrasting cloth, and decided to make part of the front match. Oh yeah, and I added small slits on the sides to make it fit around my hips. Despite the huge change from my plan, I absolutely adore it. I hope you like it! All cloth from the thrift shop!

24  my crazy one evening scrapbook bag(extremely pic heavy!) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by raycheezy on: July 19, 2007 09:06:04 AM
I'm officially in love with packaging tape. After making a wallet with it, I settled down to a movie with my family, with a ton of pictures, yearbookish notes, and cute messages my friends have written to me that I've kept, in front of me. I went slightly mad, and refused to go to bed until I finished. I used up the entire roll of tape, and I still need to reinforce one of the sides. Here are the pics Cheesy
                   The entire bag

                  Closeups of the front

                   closeups of the back

                  even the straps are pictures

                 and a very bad picture of the inside, there are a few notes in there too Smiley

   To sum it all up, I took a bunch of things that make me happy, which I look at about once a year, and made them into a bag I can look at all the time. Smiley
      I hope you like it!!!! Please, comments and critisisms very much appreciated! This is my first time trying this.

25  purty $1 circle skirt- too short? in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by raycheezy on: July 19, 2007 08:52:32 AM
I went to the thrift shop and found a TON of this gorgeous cloth, so I decided to make a circle skirt. I've never made one before, but I have no patience for patterns, so I took a swing at it by myself Smiley I had to seriously trim the bottom edge, because it was so uneven, and trimmed it too much. So I sewed some of the cloth back on the skirt(you can't see it in the picture). This is how it turned out.
  Sorry about my pale legs, I'm just getting over a dislike of them and trying to wear shorts for the first time in ages. I also have gym shorts underneath them, 'cause with circle skirts this short, you'd see my underwear constantly Cheesy
                   straight shot

                 action shots!!!!!!!!! :b I think I've fallen in love with the 10 second timer on my camera.

       Is it too short? Do you think I can pull it off? I'll always wear shorts underneath it. Maybe I'll try and stay out in the sun longer so my arms aren't 10 times tanner than my legs......
          Thanks for looking! Comments mucho appreciated!

26  warning: may cause headaches (VERY colorful patchwork skirt) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by raycheezy on: July 12, 2007 06:02:18 AM
I was looking around the site yesterday, and happened to notice a pattern for a tiered skirt. I was caught by it, because I realized I could make the skirt without actually looking at the pattern Smiley When I started on it I was feeling really weird and it was the only thing I could focus on. By the end I was miserable and it was soothing me. I haven't hemmed the bottom yet, but I still love it.
  Please tell me what you think. I've never made a skirt like this before. Are the colors too much? Also, how can I make it so the sides don't puff out and make it look insane?

           Thanks for looking! Oh, and I'm 17. I look much younger than I am in pictures, so I thought I would clarify that.

27  Re: Fill A Purse Swap 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by raycheezy on: June 29, 2007 02:38:14 PM
Everything I've seen on here so far is wonderful. I love the spider theme. Here's the stuff I just got today from MissTee_2. I love it all so much! I'm leaving on a week long trip tomorrow, so I kinda had to take pics and post in a hurry. This stuff is perfect for my trip.
First of all, here's the package it came in. Just looking at the colorful package made me really excited(I'm REALLY excitable).

Please do not post the label with your address on it - this is a public board.  Smiley SevsOnlyGirl
whoops, sorry about that. I fixed it. The package was what I wanted to show.

The lovely bag with all the stuff on it.

Camera case and wallet.

Scented lip balm(my only collection :b), a crazy hair brush, and shiny hair ties

and lastly, an action shot. Please ignore my expression. I didn't realize mi madre was taking the picture of more than the bag.

I love it all so so much! Thank you!

28  Re: Tutorial: Mini Duffles in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by raycheezy on: June 15, 2007 07:10:43 AM
Hee, I found the purse, bag, wallet tut page and went mad. I loooove this pattern. My very very very late mother's day present for mi madre. I did patchwork for the outside, and decided not to line in. I like it unlined. Plus, I messed up and redid so many things so many times(zipper ahhh!) I was not willing to do anything else. I love it, though, and so does my mom.

Oh yeah, I also didn't use interfacing, so it doesn't have a distinctive shape. It worked out, though. Thank you for the pattern!

29  birthday pencil cases :D in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by raycheezy on: April 05, 2007 06:02:18 AM
Three of my friends have birthdays in april, so I decided to make their presents over spring break. It took FOREVER, but I love them. While normal people socialize and do weird things on the computer, I sew and crochet. They start out lovely and get progressively worse as I began getting tired of making them.

first case


second case

inside(she's a tarheel fan)

third bag

I'm really proud of them, because this is the first time I've really made an effort to do everything correctly so there are absolutely no raw edges, and the zippers are as perfect as I could get them. I'm only 16, so this is quite an achievement of focus for me.
                   Thanks for looking!

30  dove milk chocolate bag(pic heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by raycheezy on: March 26, 2007 06:30:36 PM
You know those dove milk chocolates with the "promise messages" on the inside? Well, I love them, and some of the messages make me really happy. I collected them, and decided to make a bag! I'm not sure how much I like it, but I though I'd get some other points of view.

front with flap down.

My two favorite wrappers.


Thanks for looking! Any comments or advise would be greatly appreciated.
