31  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Stevie Ray Vaughn Drawings on: July 09, 2009 05:16:00 PM
These are two drawings (done is Prisma Color colored pencils on bristol board/paper) are of singer Stevie Ray Vaughn. They were done for a friend of mine who years ago generously helped me pay my rent one month and in exchange I would do three drawings for him (the first one I did was of Jimi Hendrix)

There is a shot of him playing his guitar and a closer shot of his guitar Number 1

Thanks for looking!
32  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Scrabble rack and tile Name Hanging! on: July 09, 2009 05:04:32 PM
This is the second one of these I have done. I did this one a bit differently that the first. The first one I used jump rings and screw eyes to attach the letters to one another but I didn't have enough screw eyes for this one and didn't have the $ or time to order them before I had to get this in the mail (it's for my pen pal) so with this one I drilled holes through the tiles and strung them on embroidery floss. Drilling holes completely through Scrabble tiles is HARD! Needless to say I ruined a couple letters and had to paint new ones but enough blabbing and onto the pictures!

Sorry the pictures aren't the greatest! I was in a hurry. I mod podged torn scrapbook paper onto the rack and painted the tiles. The colors were supposed to alternate but I screwed up my calculations somewhere but it still works Smiley On the rack is the last name and the names hanging down are of the Mom, Dad, two daughters, two dogs, and one cat Smiley
And since I used string I had the tie it and the top to attach the names to the rack so I tied little bows to hide that a bit Smiley
Thanks for looking! Smiley

OH and I almost forgot there are super strength magnets glued the the back and some jump rings attached the the top ...so you can either set it on a ledge, stick somewhere with the magnets, or hang it up with the jump rings.

OOH and there are beads in between each tile Smiley
33  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Question about white pants... on: June 24, 2009 08:34:21 PM
Okay this is going to be a weird question and kind of embarrassing to explain LOL! Okay so I have these really cute white pants that I have yet to wear because of two major problems....first understand that have a huge booty LOL! The first problem is obvious any colored underwear showing through except tan which wouldn't normally be a problem (I have specific underwear and bras for wearing white-flesh toned) but when I try to wear thongs with the white pants the pants end up riding up my butt too much and well looks terrible. I asked my DH "Do these look like they are half up my butt and does that look bad?" And he said "Yes!" LOL! And he's pretty good at giving clothing advice Smiley So I tried to wear boy shorts but that creates the same riding up problem but slightly less but also creates panty lines! So I guess my question is.... is there any way to remedy that? Is there a way or should I line the pants so that I can wear my regular underwear that doesn't ride up? Is lining a good idea? Is there anyway to fix the seams or add something to prevent them from riding up my butt crack LMAO!!!!!!!   When they ride up like that I feel like I'm practically just showing my bare ass to the world! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!! Sorry for being so wordy! That's me though Cheesy
34  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I made something that's actually wearable!!!!!! Wrap Pants, Skirt, Shirt!!! on: June 12, 2009 04:50:52 PM
So I am TOTALLY excited to have made something that I can actually wear!!! I'm quite proud! I mean I've made a couple easy skirts before and reconned some tees. I've also resized a few clothing items but these are the first items I've made from scratch and that fit and are actually wearable!!!

So first I saw some wrap pants here on craftster and thought those look simple and comfy, why not let's try it! This is the tut I found http://community.livejournal.com/craftgrrl/10571744.html?style=mine
I think it's been posted by someone on here before but I can't find that post, so whoever you are THANKS!

Onto the pics!

Some pics are tied in front and others tied in back. They are super comfy! I got the fabric at Joanns and it was on super sale. It's really soft and comfy. Close to a jersey knit but a bit thinner. And I thought I would screw up the first try at making these pants so I bought 4 yards just in case but only needed two for the pants.

So with the leftover fabric I made this skirt! Using this tut: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=34064.0  Thank YOU rickrackruby!!!!

I still had some leftover fabric and made a shirt!! I will change the ribbon to a thicker satin sheen ribbon that is either lighter or darker than the color of the shirt but I have to find and buy it first. So just to see if it fit etc... I just used what I had on hand. I was inspired by this post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=308455.0 Thank YOU pamcake1323!!!!

Can you tell that I LOVE this site!!!!!

Thanks for checking out my stuff!!!

Pic are gone, sorry!!!
35  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Hipslinger/Fanny Pack :) on: June 12, 2009 04:37:08 PM
So I saw this post ages ago: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=31379.0 and loved it!!! So thanks for the TUT!
So I finally have gotten up the courage to try a few harder things (I'm still quite the beginner). And thought this would come in quite handy when we go to Long Pine, NE this year. So onto the pics!

Preview Pic!

This is the first one I made, more of a trial run to see how it would work, to give myself practice. It was a little too thin so then next ones I lined one side of the outside with interfacing (if that makes any sense). So here is the "practice" one:

Instead of using the carabeeners I used one metal rectangle I had from a previous item and just attached the velcro to one side. I hope that's easy to see in the pics.

This is the second one a made, sewing still not the greatest but better but OOps I sewed one side of the lining inside out! And I did not feel at all like ripping out all those stitches!

So I attempted one more time and this one I LOVE!!!! I adore the lining fabric and the outside is jean material. I figured it would blend in well when I wear jeans which is often! I also added a pocket on the inside of this one so I could keep my phone protected from my keys if they are in there together etc....
The is only one grip about this one and that is that I didn't make the flap wide enough to fold over before I sewed in on so there is a raw jean edge that will prolly eventually fray a bit but it is jeans so it's not so bad.
I'm thinking of making some as gifts for some of the girls in my family Smiley

I should've taken a separate pic of the lining to show cuz I just love it so much. Totally reminds me of the 70's.

Thanks for looking and thanks to rocknroar for the great tut!

Pics are gone, sorry!!!
36  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Button Flowers on: May 08, 2009 06:29:34 PM
So I got this idea to make some button flowers for my penpal for Mother's Day (I got a penpal through the craft group I belong to on myspace, we send each other handmade cards and little gifts for every holiday, it's tons of fun!)

Then I decided to make some for myself, my mom, my mom in law, and two of my sisters in law Cheesy

Thanks for Looking!!!!!!!!!

Some of my pics are lost so these are the only ones I have, sorry!

37  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Earrings and some pendants - Pics are gone, sorry!!! on: February 05, 2009 05:20:43 PM
Here are some more things I've been doing lately Smiley

Button Earrings

This is a pendant/necklace made from a large flat backed marble. I attached a piece of tinfoil to the back.
It's a lot more colorful in real life. I could not capture it with the camera as well. The marble has some gold/pink shimmer to it which looks cool on top of the silver of the foil.

pics are gone sorry!
38  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Interchangeable Hair Bows :) - Pics are gone, sorry!!! on: February 04, 2009 07:17:31 PM
I hope this is the right place Smiley

I've been pretty busy lately crafting like a mad woman LOL! So keep a look out for more posts from me Cheesy

I'm gonna start with this one!

These are hair bows that I made and they all attach to one clip with velcro Smiley
And a couple head bands I made.

And these last two head bands were made from knee high socks. The toes had large holes that I could not fix so I cut the long part off sewed them together and voila! They are tight but I love them cuz for work (I clean houses) they keep the hair out of my face Smiley

39  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Hand Made Felt Ornaments - Pics are gone, sorry!!! on: December 13, 2008 10:50:44 PM
I had to wait until my partner got them in the mail before I could post and now that she has them I am SO excited to share them with you all Smiley

I have really never done much with felt before this project. I made all of these for an ornament swap on a craft group called DIY Girls on MySpace I belong to.

We all answered a few questions to help with the swap and we do it like secret santa so here are the questions and her answers (which will help explain each ornament)

Favorite Colors: Blue and Silve
Favorite Things About Christmas: Snow
Favorite Band: Fall Out Boy
Something you collect: Robots
Favorite Christmas Movie: A Christmas Story

K On to the pics!

Snowflake in her Fav. Colors (this one isn't felt but cute Smiley

Robot also in fav. colors:

Flying Sheep (Based off latest Fall Out Boy album:

MY FAV! Leg Lamp from A Christmas story:

And a bonus grab bag of random goodies

40  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Hand Drawn Re-coned T on: November 23, 2008 09:17:07 PM
I was going to wait until I had more done to post but I was so excited I couldn't wait! Plus it might be a bit till I get more T's done cuz I've been working on ornaments like crazy! But I had this large red T that I resized to have more of a feminine shape. I already had done this with a previous red T but keep the original neckline and decided I didn't need two plain red T's. So I sketched out the words with chalk first and then just hand wrote the words Hate and Love on both sides of the shirt. I wanted the words to have a really sketchy grungy feel. I used permanent marker.

On to the pics!
