1  Travel Folders\Envelopes in Completed Projects by daisypirate on: October 26, 2005 08:02:58 PM
i've seen these kinds of things (made by eagle creek, for example) and they look great for packing and holding all those carefully ironed items into place -- but the cost is too high for me so i decided to make my own!

i took a large book (roughly the same area as a folded shirt), traced it onto newspaper print, drew on some "flaps", cut and stiched and added some snaps! very simple and now my clothes don't get messed up in duffel bags or large luggage pieces!

2  I've gone Fringe Mad!! in Beads: Completed Projects by daisypirate on: October 26, 2005 07:50:57 PM
i stopped into a bead shop a couple of months ago and ended up going back every day for a week, fixing or adding to random pieces of jewelry i had

then, someone taught me how to make a fringe bracelet and i went nuts and made several -- with earrings to match. i hope they'll make nice xmas presents for family\friends

anyway, just wanted to share! thanks  Smiley

3  School Uniform Button Ponytail Holder in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by daisypirate on: October 26, 2005 05:44:01 PM
hey guys!
a few months ago, a friend gave me a bunch of buttons from her grandmother's button box -- they were all old buttons from brothers\fathers\sons\uncles\etc school uniforms! anyway, i was so excited but i didn't know what to do with them -- but finally, i used 6 of them to make this ponytail holder. i also added a few wooden beads and strung everything together on a piece of elastic. i love wearing it cos it makes a little jingle :-)

the 3rd picture is a little fuzzy, but i wanted to show how i put it together! i used 3 split rings strung on the elastic and attached the buttons and wire-wrapped beads to the split rings. then, i used a jump ring to keep it all together!

4  Denim Quilt for Mom in Quilting: Completed Projects by daisypirate on: October 26, 2005 05:27:23 PM
hey there,
just wanted to share some photos of a quilt i made and gave to my mom last mother's day

i was moving and decided to cut up my old jeans to make the quilt top and use an old printed sheet from india that i'd used as a wall hanging for years to make the quilt backing

it was so cheap to make (rotary cutter, cutting mat and plastic square for $1 each at the shop, a spool of thread for a couple bucks and that was about it! oh i did splurge on iron-on batting but it wasn't worth it, IMO!)
