11  Sustainable OOAK Fabric Wristlet with key and birds in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by lafemmedramatique on: May 14, 2008 05:38:03 PM
I made this out of new and vintage fabrics. It was really fun to make. It's a pretty easy technique too (solvy and fabric bits) but I'm starting to try to branch out from your basic fabric cuff.

Hope you all like it!

12  Re: Wall Letters for Future Niece in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by lafemmedramatique on: February 27, 2008 12:26:00 PM
These are super cute! I have used Hobby Lobby letters before for myself, actually! This is mine: .

I just hand painted it. I had seen my roommates cute gold letters that she had in her room (the overpriced ones you can buy at Hobby Lobby that she got b/c she worked there and could get the discount) and I loved the idea, but I really didn't want to spend that much on it... I was really pleased with mine, honestly. I never thought to use scrapbook paper, though!

Great job! I'm sure the little sweetie will love it as she gets older and realizes what it says!

13  button and apple bead earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by lafemmedramatique on: January 19, 2008 07:56:30 PM
These are my new favorite thing to make! They're so fun!

The button earrings are so easy to make, and the apple earrings are my favorites!

I got lucky getting the apple beads. They were an awesome thrift store find!

Sorry about the white box on all the photos!
anyway, I hope you like them!

14  another cute yoked top from a men's shirt! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lafemmedramatique on: September 15, 2007 12:07:21 PM
This photo makes me look pudgy, but i felt like it was the best one for showing the whole outfit... I would have taken it standing up, except that the kitchen is currently flooded w/ light, and so the photos aren't working well.. So, living room it is!!

This is a similar recon to the last one (ie. they both have yokes) except that this one is the v shaped yoke, and it came from the front instead of the back.

I actually got the idea from Ladyjane, since she mentioned that the last one looked like a built by wendy top. So I looked at the website, and I liked the way one of the tops looked, so i worked out how to do that cut of yoke... it was actually really easy, and I liked how it let me cut out the tiny "AE" that was stitched in without cutting out a bunch of fabric or compromising the shape much.

I really like this one, even if I look like I REALLY like cake... but, then again, I really DO like cake... Smiley

Enough talk, here's the photo!

15  Yoked top from a men's button up t-shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lafemmedramatique on: September 14, 2007 07:11:01 PM
My brother-in-law and his brother were getting rid of shirts in a garage sale, and before my sister took the non-sellers to Goodwill, she gave my boyfriend his pick of them. Some of them were too big for him, so I scooped up some of them for myself.

This was a long sleeve collared button up... it's a very soft t-shirt like material... and yes, it was originally from the Gap. But now you would never know it was a too-big mens top from the Gap. ya...

If anyone wants tips on replication, i would be happy to give them. However, I don't think I can do a tutorial... I'm WAY too busy, for one, and I don't think I would be good at writing one, either. However, I would be more than happy to tell you what I did. Just no photos.

Anyway, here it is! Hope you like it!

Farther away...

A close up of the yoke. This used to be the back of the shirt. Please excuse the wonky hand.

16  Liquored up and ready to go! Liquor tag necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by lafemmedramatique on: September 14, 2007 06:13:28 PM
I saw Saint Lexi's necklaces that were made out of liquor decanter tags on here a long time ago, and I thought they were really neat.


So, I got on Ebay and bought a set of 6 of them for dirt cheap, and here's the first one that I've actually put together into a necklace.

These are all probably going to go to a craft fair the first week of Oct. I might keep one for myself, but I have yet to decide. I do have one person who I think might want one of them that I'll give first pick before I send them off, but I haven't decided yet. We'll see.

Anyway, here are the photos of it! Let me know what you think!

17  crotcheted latice work baby hat OR Would you buy this for your kid? in Get Product and Website Opinions by lafemmedramatique on: September 14, 2007 02:00:50 PM
So, I was trying to make a lattice work hat, and it ended up much smaller than anticipated... However, I think it would be really cute on a baby...

My only question is, would you buy it for your kid or not? My roomie is going to a craft fair the first week of October, and I don't know if I should send this with her or not. and if I did, how much would you pay for it?

Here is the hat on my pillow:

And again on a new roll of Vanna's Choice yarn! It's about 12" around, fyi.

I wish that I could show the lattice work a little better Sad Unfortunately, I don't have a baby to put it on so you can see it against, well, not yellow yarn.

Let me know what you think!

18  digital collage and a poem, written by me! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by lafemmedramatique on: September 10, 2007 06:47:09 PM
I decided to do a digital collage for this one... prehaps I shall eventually start doing paper collages for some of my poetry, but for now this is less messy!

I wrote this during an exercise for my poetry writing class.... I'm pretty  proud of it...

Anyway, here's the picture

19  dainty flower necklace, with real flower in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lafemmedramatique on: September 10, 2007 06:39:17 PM
So, today I was sitting there going through some junk in my purse, and I realized that I REALLY needed to throw away my old blush container (i've been out of blush for weeks) but before I did I noticed that the metal part could pop out, and would be perfect for a collage pendant...

So, some scrap fabric, a dried flower I found on the ground several weeks ago, some scrap ribbon, and some Mod Podge and hot glue came together to make this!

I'm so proud of it. It has a victorian-esque feel, to me, but the fabric has frayed edges, which adds a nice urban chic feel....

Let me know what you think. I thought about selling it on etsy, but I'm so attached to it now! haha!

20  Don't step on my new blue shoes! in Shoes: Completed Projects by lafemmedramatique on: August 19, 2007 08:01:53 AM
So, they're not blue suede shoes, but whatever...

These have been one of my favorite pairs of shoes for ages... they were green, and I got them at payless... but I had been wearing them for 2 years off and on, and they were starting to get a bit raggedy looking...

So, I painted them!

It's just 2 coats of acrylic paint, followed by a thin coat of Mod Podge... So far, they're holding up fantastically!

Here they are!


And the original color on the inside...
