1  Use a Subway bag to store other Grocery Bags!! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by aimee_ant123 on: December 28, 2011 09:39:45 PM
So this isn't really anything that I made, but I had one of those "Ah ha" moments today. Use a Subway bag to store other grocery bags!! Cut one corner off to use as the dispenser. The long skinny shape of the bag makes for more compact storage, kind of similar to those fabric bag holders I've seen made before. I love seeing those simple cheap ideas that make life a little easier Cheesy

2  Cutesie Photo Collage Wall Hanging in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by aimee_ant123 on: July 19, 2010 09:53:42 PM
I always have trouble deciding what board to post my randomness on... so I decided on "Home Sweet Home" since its technically a decoration.

I made this for my niece's 16th birthday present, and it turned out to be one of my favorite creations!!

I pieced together some random fabric scraps... had some of our favorite pictures printed in wallet size... sewed them on... then added embellishments such as buttons, bows, ribbon, silk flowers, shapes cut from fabric, made some random stitches with embroidery floss, and Viola!! a photo collage wall hanging Smiley

the one in the red glasses is me!!

Thanks for looking!!

i read your blog about the first bag...  i know exactly what you mean about the instructions for this bag!!  i am teaching my friend how to sew, and she wanted me to teach her to read patterns.  She chose this pattern as her first... and needless to say she doesnt have a very good first impression of patterns.  Here I am trying to explain it to her and the instructions are very unclear and they even had mistakes in them.  We were bothing swearing at that pattern by the end of it...lol.  But it does make a very cute bag and i love the fabric you used.  and i agree that the handles need more support... she reinforced hers too.

here's how hers turned out:

6  v.s. PINK tag magnets in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by aimee_ant123 on: July 17, 2009 07:00:03 PM
Okay so not the most brilliant idea ever but i got new panties today and i turned the tags and stickers into magnets!!  I thought they turned out pretty cute so i thought I'd share them.

ya know those business magnets you have stuck all over the fridge? they can be great for turning anything into a magnet as long as its not too heavy... just add glue...

thanks for lookin...

10  Talladega 500 Tuxedo T-shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by aimee_ant123 on: October 25, 2008 10:20:36 AM
A friend of mine went to the Talladega 500 nascar race a few weeks ago, and with us both being fans of the movie Talladega Nights, I just had to make him a tuxedo t-shirt to wear to the race.

I just freehanded it with white fabric paint onto a black t-shirt.  I wish I had close up pictures of the shirt before I gave it to him, but he emailed me the ones he had.

He said he got alot of response from people at the race. This is him in front of the Talladega Superspeedway:

This is what he wanted the back to say: "If ya aint first yer last" it looks kind of sloppy it was last minute

Thanks for looking!
