21  Oreo Tape Measure in Crochet: Completed Projects by foreversandals on: March 12, 2008 07:24:20 AM
My swap partner had serendipitycrafter's oreo cookie tape measure on her wists. So I read her thread and figured out how she made it.
Instead of hot gluing the cookie to the tape measure, I basted through the brown, picked up a loop of the white, and through the brown again. A bit tedious, but it came out well.

22  Coin Purse in Crochet: Completed Projects by foreversandals on: March 12, 2008 07:19:16 AM
This was made for my swap partner in the Newbie Round 8 Swap.
I made her a wallet, but I suck at zippers so I thought I'd make her a matching coin purse.

Its all done in one piece.
You start at the bottom and after the first row of sc, you work in the back loops and the front loop to make two rows next to each other.
From there, I just spiraled up until I thought it was tall enough.
Then I worked in the back loop once to make a bit of a ridge, made the flap and button hole, and sewed on the button hole.

23  First Wallet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by foreversandals on: March 12, 2008 07:11:37 AM
I made this wallet using SexPixie's tutorial [https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=16097.0].
It was made for my lovely swap partner in the Newbie Round 8 Swap.
I hope she likes it.

It was a project of firsts for me...
- first wallet.
- first vinyl.
- first binding.
- first making my own binding.
- first interfacing.

I received from bergman!
She was an amazing swap partner and totally spoiled me.

First, this is the fun box I got. [Can you tell she's an elementary teacher?  Wink]

Group shot:

A cute tea/hot chocolate wallet:

Homemade oatmeal soap [I can't wait to try this]:

A crocheted wrist pin cushion. So hilariously cute.:

A box with my name on it:

Recipe cards both blank and filled in:

Marble magnets [great minds think alike...  Cheesy] and cute little paper clips:

And a homemade beeswax candle:

There was also a lovely card and some homemade lip balm... but its already in my purse... hehe.

Thanks so much bergman!!

I'm so excited that you love everything.
I was so nervous about the wallet. I've never made one, and I tried to make it more like the ones on your wists... but there was no way.

Here's a pic of the oreo tape measure.

26  Card for hubby in Valentine's Day by foreversandals on: February 14, 2008 08:36:08 AM
Hubby and I decided that we weren't going to spend any money on each other this year [budget's tight, plus we're not excited about it when the holiday tells us to buy each other things]. But I figured that doesn't mean I can't make him a card or present.

So here's his card. [We'll see if I make him anything today or not]
Mind you. This is the first card I've ever made [besides those ones you make as kids]

27  Re: Possible wedding colors.... opinions pretty please! in Weddings and Bridal Showers by foreversandals on: January 31, 2008 11:00:15 AM
Do the red and blue!

Those two colors are what we did for my bridesmaids' dresses. [Well my sister/maid of honor had a white ribbon]
It looked so nice. We pulled the red into flowers to tied it together with the rest of the wedding.

Here's a pic of my sister trying on one of the dresses pre-getting-taken-up. Sorry she looks like a dork, but it shows the colors and the dress nicely. They had them hemmed up to tea length.

Here's a very horrible attempt at me making a tutorial in paint.

One you've sewn the pockets, you should just be able to slide it over top of the scrapbook.

ETA: Hopefully this makes sense. I'm not sure if its clear. If not, I'll take pics and hopefully that will help.

29  Stained Glass Looking Ornaments in Winter Holidays by foreversandals on: December 04, 2007 03:55:36 PM
A few years ago my mom and I were in a craft store and found this idea. I had planned on making a bunch that year, but slacked. They've moved with me and I finally got around to decorating more of them this year.

Basically you find a peel and stick stained glass paint and go to town on glass balls. Either using the paints directly on the ornaments or by painting onto a flat surface and transferring it onto the ornament.

Here's the ones I've done so far using different ideas. I'm sure I'll have more by the time Christmas rolls around so I'll be sure to post them.

Let me know if you have any questions or just what you think.
If there's an ornament in the group photo you have questions about, let me know.

Here's the lot I've done so far:

These are done by just randomly squirting colors on the balls.

This one is done by painting the ball and then painting the circles on a flat surface, filling with sparkles, and peeling/sticking those on top.

This is the one my hubby made. I just wanted to show off his crafty skills.  Grin

And this one is done by painting the inside of the ball and then using leading paint outside.

I'll be sure to add more as I have pictures and as I make them.  Grin

30  Adult costume: Witch in Halloween Costumes by foreversandals on: October 28, 2007 04:38:16 PM
[Also posted on the general board: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=204593.0]

So we took a trip to my in-laws this weekend and my SIL asked me to help her make her Halloween costume for this year. She had envisioned a witch, but more of a wizard-y kind of witch and not the green, icky kind. Here's her drawing:

We started with a dress that she wore to her other brother's wedding this summer:

Then we added a tutu for height of the skirt.
We used the tutorial from Flickr [http://www.flickr.com/photos/ambrosialove/522118984/in/photostream/].
Here's the tutu:

Then we added a skirt made from this lightweight sheer material. Its a flat piece that has two hook/eye closures to hold it up.

Next, we made a cumber bun [sp?] kind of thing to wrap around. The material is more heavyweight, but beautiful. 

And all together:

She's wearing it to school on Tuesday and then again for Wednesday night. Once she wears it, she'll send me pics and I'll add action shots!

This was fun for me because I got to do a lot of firsts:
- First time using interfacing [in the cumber bun].
- First time using velcro [to hold together the cumber bun].
- First time making a tutu.
- First time using most of these fabrics.
