11  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 26 ENTRIES / Daisy the Dollar Store Dolly on: April 02, 2008 07:35:11 PM
I have always wanted to make a Waldorf Doll and had a directions about how to make one, so that was what I set out to do! Cheesy   Of course there are specific supplies used to make Waldorf dolls, but Dollar Tree items seem to work very well too!  And a lot cheaper, I'm sure.  I am sooo happy with how she turned out.  So I present Daisy the Dollar Store Dolly....

I headed to Dollar Tree and found the closest thing I could to the actual supplies needed:

for doll:
1 pair white trouser socks
1 pair light pink tights
1 bag cotton balls (not in photo)
1 skein acrylic yarn
for her clothes and accessories:
1 baby onesie
1 baby halter dress
1 plastic bead kit
1 plastic bead necklace
1 pair polka dot socks
(The white monkey anklets in the pic were not used Smiley)

Help me! 

I love this pic in her socks and undies

Here are her mary janes:

12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Sorry Silpada... on: March 27, 2008 05:37:46 AM
I saw this Silpada bracelet at a vendor show and fell in love with it!

But, with a price tag in the $60 range, it just was not gonna happen.  Embarrassed

So I made a trip to my local bead shop for some sterling beads and a sterling toggle and raided my stash for the rest.  Oh, I bought the black and white glass beads too.  It really doesn't resemble the Silpada, but I think I like it better!!  Grin

13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Scrappy Gal Tote on: March 12, 2008 08:10:24 PM
This is a tote bag I designed for myself for the Amy Butler Sew Inspiring contest.  It has 10 exterior pockets that expand and is plenty big to carry all my supplies to my various papercrafting clubs.  I used Amy Butler fabric and the brown fabric is a vintage fabric. 

I didn't win or place in the contest  Cry but I really love the bag and will put it to good use.  It is probably the most time consuming design I have ever done, but super functional  Smiley

The winners of the contest can be seen here:

14  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 24 ENTRIES / The Great Ribbon Roundup on: February 03, 2008 03:53:22 PM
One of my New Year's Resolutions is to:  "Use what I have".  Because I don't have a true craft room where I can keep all of my stuff in one place, I often don't really even know what I have  Huh 
This was especially true of my ribbon stash.  I LOVE ribbon and use it all the time in my sewing, paper crafting, jewelry making etc. etc.  But I really didn't have a storage system in place and when planning a project I would buy more ribbon so I wouldn't have to hunt it all down.
So, I was inspired by those over the door shoe racks and figured I could somehow create one perfect for ribbon storage.  So I chose which door in my house I would hang it on and took the measurements.  I hit up my stash for some upholstery weight fabric and interfacing and began!  My plan came together beautifully and Michael's sells wooden dowels that fit perfectly through the ribbon spools  Cheesy  Just sawed them off to the right length, always looking for a reason to use my saw!  I thought about using actual ribbon to secure the dowels, but actually settled on woven strapping.  So here are the pics along the way and the final product:

the back and wooden hanger seems the strongest

Ta Da!!!  The finished product, loaded with ribbon

It is sooo fun now, to go and choose which ribbon I want to use!  Plus, I just love to look at all the pretty ribbon  Grin  Yeah, I know that's kinda weird.
15  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Clowning around on: January 24, 2008 07:11:53 PM
 Grin This was my completed project in the t-shirt transformation swap.  My partner is a fan of clowns, so this was my design for her.  The bag itself was made with a hot pink t-shirt and the clown's ruffle collar is the sleeve and hem of a blue t-shirt.  I think he's sooo cute, I have to admit it was hard to give him away!
16  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Auld Lang Syne Charm Necklace on: January 19, 2008 06:53:48 PM
This is my entry for the challenge, just got it done, Yay!  I took a traditional song for this time of year, Auld Lang Syne, and made inchie charms with it for my beaded charm necklace.  It started out to be a bracelet, but I soon realized it was meant to be a necklace.  I used silver chain, black silk cord, I made glass and Swarovski bead dangles and used snowflake charm.  Thanks for such a fun challenge  Cheesy

17  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Shea Bay Bag on: August 29, 2007 06:51:49 PM
I wanted to try and make a bowling type bag and this is what I came up with. I just used stash scraps but I think it is now my favorite!  The dog on the front is my dog Shea Bay, he's a maltedoodle and the sweetest.  Smiley  You can download the dog  shape on Anna Maria Horner's blog.  I think it would make a cute t-shirt too!

18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Sara's bags on: August 29, 2007 06:20:43 PM
I made these bags for my friend Sara today, purse, wallet and coin purse.  She pretty much gave me free reign with these.  You have to smile when someone says, "You decide, I trust you!"  Can't wait for her to see them!

19  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Little Sylvie Sparkles aka Kitty Poppet on: August 28, 2007 06:38:26 AM
I used ghilie's awesome Poppet pattern but turned her into a kitty,  inspired by my family's long ago kitty Sylvie.  I think Sylvie would approve, she would love the dress! Wink

Great pattern ghilie!!!
