11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / DIY Vintage Look Cameos/Cabochons :) on: August 29, 2006 08:31:31 PM

I made these last week - they're supposed to look like old cameos/cabochons. They were pretty easy to do and I like how some of them have a greenish blue tint from the brass bezel they're set in. Smiley
12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Pirate Cameo in a Vintage Setting on: August 20, 2006 10:34:30 AM

I found a really cute skull and crossbones cabochon and wanted to do something spiffy with it. So I pried an ugly old cabochon out of a 1970s pendant and replaced it with this one to create a new look. I like that it's sort of an unexpected visual -- kind of retro and kind of pirate like all rolled into one Smiley
13  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Rubber Stamps + Shoes = Supercute! on: August 06, 2006 01:31:30 PM

After spilling a bit of grape juice on my sandals I decided to cover up the stain.

I just colored in a pretty rubber stamp with a fabric pen from the craft store and stamped all about the shoe.

And they should be fine once the ink is totally dry - rain shouldn't make the color run since they're meant to be used on fabric and be washable. Smiley
14  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Mosaic Pet Bed on: July 03, 2006 06:13:02 PM
I made my fur-enabled companions a pet bed using only recycled materials. Smiley Here's the headboard, made with glass pieces from the crafts section of a dollar store, tile grout and a piece of scrap wood:

The bed and the mattress with removeable cover, made from a pillow and black fabric from a vintage jacket. The base is the top part of a small 1960's wood and laminate table top which means it's low to the ground and easy for the pets to access. I still have to make sheets and a comforter for it, but the cat has already made himself comfortable. He's looks angry because the flash woke his furry butt up. Smiley

15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Stenciled Microbead Patches - to decorate clothes or accessories! on: June 25, 2006 05:15:01 PM

A skull and crossbones patch that I made this weekend to attach to a pair of jeans. It's made of canvas, fabric paint and microbeads and can be attached to clothes using a zigzag stitch and fabric glue. Smiley
16  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Mixed Media Necklaces... on: May 06, 2006 09:18:34 PM
I whipped these up today -- they're a combination of wood, paper, metal and vintage beads.

A few additional charms for future necklaces. Smiley

17  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Paper Punch Luggage and Gift Tags! on: March 03, 2006 12:09:20 PM

Last week I couldn't find the luggage tag that came with my suitcase. And since I needed one fast I simply found some heavy duty cardstock with a pattern that I liked, wrote my name and address on the blank side with a fine point sharpie marker then laminated both sides with contact paper. Used the paper punch to punch out a large circle around the address and then added a grommet and some ball chain. Smiley

These also make cute gift tags too, just skip the lamination aspect, add a grommet and tie to the present with pretty ribbon.
18  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Resin Trinkets from Russian Candy Wrappers & Vintage book cutouts :) on: January 15, 2006 04:18:35 PM

I saved some very cute Russian candy wrappers and ultimately decided that it would be fun to make resin charms with them. This is how they came out. The plan is to eventually drill holes in the top, add a jump ring and wear the rectangular ones as necklace charms.

The small dome shaped ones are wee cutouts of people found in a vintage cookbook. Don't know what to do with those yet, though they could be fun made into quirky little buttons or rings. Smiley

19  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Vintage Owl Tee from an old Wall Hanging on: January 02, 2006 05:10:54 PM

I found a miniature 1970's wall hanging at a yard sale. Scanned it, cut out the owl portion and ironed it onto a 3/4 sleeve tee shirt. I like how it came out but part of me worries that people will think I'm wearing a "hooters" eatery souvineer shirt. Smiley
20  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Rabies Tag into necklace Charm on: November 27, 2005 10:42:20 AM

When the Wonderdogs  rabies tag expired I decoupaged it with a cutout of a mosquito from an old encyclopedia and laminated it with a couple of coats of clear varnish. Put it on a vintage chain and pouf, a cute new necklace for me.

The cool thing is you can decoupage both sides and have two necklaces in one! Smiley
