13  tree sculpture made entirely out of stolen silverware in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by jamiewatchthestars on: September 12, 2007 05:47:48 PM
i "borrowed" about 100 plus pieces of cutlery from the yale dining hall to make this.  it was shown in the Green Street art gallery.

sadly it broke while transporting it home from the show.  still, better to have loved and lost than never loved at all......

14  Whimsical Plum Bedroom (not for the faint of bandwidth) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by jamiewatchthestars on: September 11, 2007 05:34:37 PM
Finally got it clean enough to take some (lots of) pictures.  All furniture for the most part was bought at the NOVA thriftstore near my house and refinished by me.  I am not much for photographing rooms, but i guess i will just post a bunch and hope you can get the gist of the room:

Closet curtains made by me, fabric from ikea.  Bookcase from Target.  Chair= from our former family living room.  Desk, painted by me from thrift.

LACK shelving from ikea.  bed area!

old pix on wall


dresser (finished by me)

egress window (im in the basement)

anyway i work at a fabric store (envy me) and they needed somebody to make a sample from this new book we just got in.  the book looked cute enough, so naturally i volunteered, and to my surprise the book was oozing with cuteness and forwarded by leah!

well anyway, here it is, in all its creamy goodness:

yay for crafty girls out in the real world!

17  Makeup bag made entirely from plastic bag fabric....not hideous! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jamiewatchthestars on: June 22, 2007 01:13:39 PM
For a tutorial on how to create plastic bag fabric....go here:

I made this bag.  It was a LOT of fun to sew.  It was incredibly easy fabric to work with.  I thought it would make a nice makeup case because it can be wiped out with a damp cloth to clean it.

top view:

Flower deatail:

the flower was attatched with hot glue, the rest was sewn on my machine.  I used an overlock stitch to make the edges look neat.  there is velcro to close it.  im really happy with how it turned out.  i am going to try to make a messenger bag next.

18  reminds me of dad's tie skirt (new look) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by jamiewatchthestars on: June 21, 2007 04:55:17 PM
i used a pattern from new look, im lazy and forget the number.  i can add it if anybody is interested.

the only thing i have to say about it is that the sizing is not true to the measurements on the package.  it ended up having to sit at my waist, instead of two inches below like the package said.

also i put the yoke on upside down.  whoops!

19  two tone skirt with shirred waist in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by jamiewatchthestars on: June 21, 2007 04:51:10 PM
i was planning to just make two solid circle skirts, but i was short on fabric.  I ended up making it two tone, and then attatching some flowers i crocheted.  i am going to eventually take off the flowers and change the hem to just a raw edge with a zig zag stitch.  it looks weird how it is i think.  i can provide a tute if you want

anyway, i really used my math skills for this one.  it took so much geometry to figure out the circle dimensions.

the waist was done with the elastic stitch on my machine, which is so cool.  i had to use geometry for this too (scale factor!)

hahah anyway, you probably don't care....pics

im most proud of the waist

if you don't know how to use the elastic stitch on your machine, learn! it makes such a neat effect.

20  birds paint by number miniskirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by jamiewatchthestars on: June 21, 2007 04:45:46 PM
i made some curtains (you can find them in the house crafts board) and i had a thing long strip of fabric leftover, so i decided to make a simple miniskirt.

easiest thing ever. 

it has an elastic waist and the stuff hanging out of the bottom is some curtainy-tulle type fabric that nobody can seem to figure out what it is actually.

the fabric is from moda's uptown chic collection, which i lusted after at work for a few weeks before finally buying a bunch of different prints.

if anybody wants a tutorial i can provide....
