31  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Jewellery display on: September 12, 2007 11:14:47 PM
Inspired, as usual, by a post on Craftster, I made a jewelery holder for my daughter.  Got an old picture frame and decoupaged it with old stamps.  then I took some rickrack and some fabric scraps and attached them across the frame.  I also added some hook eyes and some buttons to hang earrings and stuff on. 

Then I glued toy soldiers to the top

Then I screwed some hooks along the bottom for strings of beads and necklaces.

I like it, hope you do to.  I'll try to find the inspirational post and put on a link to it. 
32  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / glass marble brooches on: September 12, 2007 11:10:40 PM
I was inspired by a post on craftster, but I haven't been able to locate it.  IN the local $2 shop they sell glass marbles for fish tanks or flower arranging. They come in a bag of about 30 for $2.  I have been cutting out pictures from books or fabric catalogues and sticking them on the back using mod podge.  Then I glue on a brooch pin and bob is your proverbial uncle.

33  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / cosmetic bags - img heavy on: September 12, 2007 10:45:10 PM
Using the tutorial by queenofdiy, which is here;
I have been madly sewing these gorgeous cosmetic bags.  The tutorial is a real dream - it makes neat zippers possible even for klutzes like me.  The first one I made is in pink fabric

and it has striped lining

The next one I made for my daughter and she chose the fabrics.  It is a zebra stripe and the lining is maroon-y red

I also made one for her friend using keyboard fabric with a colourful polka dot lining, but I haven't got a photo of it. Since then I have been going insane in the membrane with this pattern.  Little prancing kitties

with green lining

Jane Sassaman floral

with a lining by Kaffe Fassett

A nice harvest fabric

with the same maroon lining. 

Hope you enjoy the pics, and thanks again to the Queen of DIY
34  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Rich coloured 9-patch quilt - just 3 years overdue on: September 02, 2007 11:10:27 PM
Last week I finished a quilt I have been working on for some time.  I promised it to my brother for his wedding, which was over 3 years ago.  I bought all the fabric, but didn't start it until late last year.  I had to leave it for a while because of other commitments, but finally finished it last week.  (yay!)  It is based on a Kaffe Fasset design.  I call it 'sitting in a tree...' because it is a wedding (now anniversary) present and it is rich green, red and gold colours.  The quilting is stipple/meander quilting, with a 'waves' border.  I had to learn machine quilting as I went, so I started adding some fancy patterns towards the end.  The binding is not very clear - it is musical bars/notes, which is because my brother and his wife are both musicians.  Comments, feedback would be welcome!
Here is the quilt

This is a close-up

and here is a detail of the quilting

The colours look a bit washed out in the pictures - they are very rich in real life.  Hope you like...
