101  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Body Bag for my BJD on: March 11, 2007 10:07:42 AM

I wanted to make some unique bags for my dolls, given this was the first one I was doing I didn't want to make it out of a fabric I loved, so I used Purple PVC.  I absolutely love how it turned out can't wait to get one made up in a color I will keep! LOL
102  Washington / Washington: West / South Puget sound - anyone interested in a get together? on: March 06, 2007 06:49:40 AM
I'm not quite sure how to go about planning one, but the weather has been alot nicer lately and I'm sure there are bound to be more than just me South of Seattle in the Tacoma/Puyallup/Olympia area lol.  Anyone interested in getting together and meeting new friends in person? lol

103  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Flaming Hot Mini Messenger Bag (edited to add the tote) on: March 06, 2007 04:48:31 AM
I made two bags tonight (yes I'm a night owl its 4:46am lol) but only managed to get pics of this one so far.  But I'm in love lol.  Hubby says I need to get rid of some of them, as I'm avg'ing about 6 a week... I think he doesn't understand that I have a bag obsession.  LOL 

and a blurry interior shot

And here is the Tote I did too.  Not the best pictures but I love this little bag as well (8"x10"x3") It has a large exterior pocket and a large interior pocket as well with a magnetic snap to keep it closed up top.

104  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Misc. Clay completed projects>>(alot of images but smallish in size) on: March 04, 2007 04:48:03 PM
Here are some of the misc. projects that I've been working on with my poly clay's lately.  The first three pics are of my stitch markers I've made The set with the skull, combat boot and bone also has a neon pink heart but I ran out of the little gadgets to hang them so it's not pictured here. 

The next two pictures are of a revamped altoids tin made from scrap clay from other projects.

The final pic is of the clay doughnuts I started making for a friend for our dolls.  I think they look delicious lol.

Enjoy comments or suggestions are welcome Smiley

105  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Have you ever made a bag and wanted to kick yourself afterwards? on: March 04, 2007 03:39:50 AM
Just a slight vent I really could kick myself for this one.

We had a suprise babyshower for a friend last night, and I had made her a babybag that I thought was so very very cute (chocolate brown & aqua messenger bag 'short trip' style) but after talking to her on Friday she mentioned seeing a bag on ebay she really wanted that they would customize with her baby's name on the flap.  But that they wanted $65 for that and she was toying with wether or not to spend that much on the bag. 

Well the lightbulb went off in my head (I have an embroidery machine!) and I rushed home and started working on a new diaper bag for her from a white Vinyl/PVC with black piping.  I did it messenger bag style as well and embroidered the baby's name on a black/white polka dot heart on the flap, I lined it in black/white polka dots, put an extra pocket on the side of the bag to hold a bottle, made a little section inside the bag with 4 pockets on it to hold the 'baby essentials' in miniature (lotion, powder, desatin, soap) that connected with snap buckles Put an extra big pocket on the opposite side, and attached a D-ring and one of those little 'portable' trash bag caddy's to the D-ring.  I worked on the bag for almost 12 hours straight between planning/drafting & sewing it up.  I finally crashed after my crafting Rendavous about noon yesterday.  Hubby woke me up just before 5 when we were to go to the shower. 

We get there and She and her husband arrive and we are all having a fantastic evening (Strange 'ritual' amongst our friends was a baby shower/BBQ/excuse to watch a UFC fight - night)  We came back home around midnight and I realized I didn't take my camera & I didn't get pictures of the bag before we left. 

I could just kick myself Sad  I wonder if she would think it's too strange if I called her and asked her to bring it by so I can get pictures of it lol. 
106  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Comic Book Evening Gown on: March 02, 2007 11:09:58 PM
I had shown ya'll my last ball gown a few months back, this is the most recent I'm a little pissed that this is the only picture of me in it from that night, hoping some of our friends got a better shot of me in it. 

107  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Flaming Skull Pajama Pants for the Hubby on: March 02, 2007 12:34:02 AM
I had started these a while back but lost my waistband elastic, finally finished them and now have a happy husband once again lol.  (I think they work too since he's sleeping, either that or I'm just evil and take pictures of him when he's passed out in his chair) 

108  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / my bad word bag >>>> on: February 27, 2007 12:06:48 AM
I get called this quite often  Shocked so I thought it would make the perfect handbag for me.  I love the messenger bag style of purse but really wanted something smaller so I did just that.  It's got Red PVC accents with white topstitching to accent the lettering and a magnetic snap.  I also put 3 card holders in the flap that hold the cards nice and finished it off with a quilted lining.  I'll post more detailed pictures when the lighting is better for taking them.  Enjoy Smiley 

109  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Camo Evening Gown on: January 16, 2007 02:07:28 AM
I'm a military wife and for our ball last year I wanted to stand out among the crowd, being a tiny little thing that's often hard to do so I took to work and made this dress for me to wear. 

Bought the pattern for $1 during one of Joann's sales (some simplicity one if I remember right) and some fabric (the black is actually shot with olive green and it is a stretch knit picked up for $1 a yard, and the camo is a netting that is used by hunters to cover their faces I picked it up for $2.44 a yard, total dress cost was under $15.  Shoes (if you can see them) were modified with some camo fabric (1/2 yard at $3 a yard) and a can of 3M headliner glue.

I didn't have to worry at all at the ball, there was no one else dressed anything like me lol!  This year, its comicstrip fabric for my gown, will post pics of it soon. 

110  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Jeans used to be too small >>>> on: January 15, 2007 11:53:54 PM
I have a ten year old daughter who is real tall and ultra skinny so we run into issues with clothing fitting her, if they fit in legnth they are too big throughout the waist, if they fit in the waist they are a few inches too short.  

She has been begging me for a new wardrobe, so rather than running out and getting frustrated with nothing fitting, I decided to revamp her current wardrobe to give her some new looks.  We bought 10 boxes of Ritz dye on sale at Joann's and started redoing her clothes Smiley  Here is the first project that we finished today Smiley (I'll post the others as we finish them up) I'm kicking myself for not taking before photos.  These jeans were real short on her, and originally were a very light blue denim. They were much too cute to completely eliminate the embroidery from the legs, so we worked out how to incorporate it into the finished skirt.  

We cut up the inseam of the jeans (to one side of the seam on each leg) and then cut off the jeans from below the knee.  Then we trimmed up at the crotch to just where it curves and sewed it flat (to form a negative V) then cut around the embroidery portion of the leg parts that we cut off and added it to the openings in the front and back of the skirt.  We then clipped around the hem and the V in the  front of the skirt so that it will frey when we wash the skirt.

We then dyed the skirt with "Cocoa Brown" dye from dritz and voila! a brand new look from something that was destined to go to the goodwill.
