1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / IMG heavy- Shrink Plastic Pendants on: September 22, 2007 09:36:48 AM
Lately I've been making tonnes of shrinky dinks.
I get the pictures from various google image searches. I can't take credit for the incredible artwork.

I totally stole the design for the heart piano pendant from here. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=169748.0
I gave it to my sister.

This is my personal favourite, it gets a lot of strange looks.

And with a penny for size, the CRAFTSTER logo.
I wear it in hopes of finding a fellow craftster.

Let me know what you think, please.
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Swallow Stencilled Camera Case on: September 15, 2007 02:53:39 PM
I started out with a boring camera case. Label on the front- bleh.
Seam ripper + stencil + old purple fabric paint

And a close up-

The second photo shows the colours the best.

I wish I could remember where I got the stencil from to reference it, but it was a photobucket collection of everything organized by category- very handy!
3  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / [ACCEPTED] Swap Links in Profile on: May 28, 2007 08:08:23 PM
When I do a swap, I really like to check out my partner and see what they do.
I find it really difficult to find the thread of their swaps, searching doesn't always find it.
I would love to see in the profile where it says the name, a link to the thread.

I don't know much about this, but when you put the persons swap feedback as "in progress", couldn't their be a box to put the link?

What do you all think?
4  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / against Animal Cruelty on: April 04, 2007 08:12:56 PM
I whipped these up the night before the circus came to town.
My friends and I protested.
Animal circuses  Angry

I hope this isn't considered too political. Focus on crafting!

I apologize for the dirty shoes and poor picture skills.

EDIT: Hurrah for size ten feet!
5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / dinosaur birthday papercard! on: January 19, 2007 04:29:05 PM
I hope this belongs here...

I made this one night- it was super fun and easy. It looks terrible, I know, but it was fun! He got a doughnut to make up for what the card lacked.

It was my friends birthday. His initals are HB, just like HB for Happy Birthday so I combined it as I thought it funny.
There are a load of Bockings in the world, so I don't think it matters much that I put this here.

More of the dinosaur!

And the pretty letters...

All I did was print a dinosaur picture, trace using a lampshade instead of lightbox onto a piece of pretty paper, cut it out, glue onto black paper.
Cover with everything and a billion tonnes of glue. Yarn, sequins, crepe paper streamers...
6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Discussion and Questions / Help with freehand machine embroidery mess! on: January 03, 2007 06:45:11 PM
Sorry about the awful picture quality- I scanned it. I was attempting to do some freehand machine embroidery. And got this:

However, the back:

It's terrifying.
And the stitches are skipped. It's messy and bad.
Could anyone help me with this.
I have a Kenmore machine, about 20 years old...

EDIT: I was inspired by this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=141127.0

And I forgot to mention: the second picture is inverted strange. I meant to flip it from upside down in photo editor, but instead did a horizontal mirror image thing.  Roll Eyes
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bags, wallets, zippery pouches. IMG HEAVY on: December 27, 2006 06:41:35 PM
Please tell me what you think- this is my first making a new thread, so I hope I did everything right!!

As soon as I discovered craftster, I started sewing Christmas presents for my friends from all the amazing tutorials here.

Sorry about the horrible quality photos. Does anyone know how to take good close ups? My camera over exposes with flash on, without is too dark!

This is not from any tutorial. It is TERRIFYING. But the fabric is so amazing.

Next, and much better- we visit my wallet, made with hdoglovesyou's tutorial

And a chicken one!

thejordy's Jordy Bag tutorial helped me with this:

tinafish's Slouchy Hobo Bag ish:

(Look- it's reversable! I bought the parrot for .50 at a thrift shop!)

e.r.i.k.a's tutorial for zippered pouches made this:

and the back:

It's from adorable ballerina fabric scraps which I then appliqued? on.

I made so many of those bags, but didn't take pictures.
One I made at an angle as I made an oopsie cutting the fabric. It doesn't have a lining though.
