1  Take your camera to work day! (earrings and beaded trees) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by maddiesmibbs on: July 09, 2009 06:15:47 PM
I recently got a new camera, and between that and wanting a picture of some of my jewelry I decided to take it to work (at a bead store) and get some photos. Cheesy

Made with chain and jump rings.  I also have some that are jump rings about that size connected by wirewrapped swarovskis.

My first attempt at a tree pendant.


Aaaand a silver one.

4  Aung San Suu Kyi t-shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by maddiesmibbs on: May 20, 2008 01:52:02 PM
My friend recently came home from college and we celebrated by tie-dying t-shirts.  We were a little disappointed with the results (the dye we bought was terrible), so today in my rainy day summer reading procrastinationness I decided to add a stencil.  I've been meaning to make a shirt dedicated to the Burmese pro-democracy leader Suu Kyi for a while now...she's someone I really admire and not enough people know about her.  I hope that wearing this shirt will get people to ask questions!

I can't decide whether to cut the neckline and sleeves off or just leave it...what do you guys think?

7  Spring-y necklace, just in time for fall! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by maddiesmibbs on: September 01, 2007 04:41:15 PM


I took this baby home from work to finish it and couldn't resist taking pictures. Tongue  It's 3mm swarovski crystals, peredot (who can resist peredot? it's so friendly) and gold filled chain.  I think it ended up being somewhere over 40 wirewrappings.


Horrible picture, but you see how it falls.  Grin  Do you think I should make it longer?  It's to sell (but not online, so I'm not advertising!) and I think my neck is smaller than average.

lkdlakdoieu I love this idea.  Here's some of mine: (click for larger)

Some people's tissue paper seemed to show through the freezer paper on the inside.  Mine didn't really. Sad

I also made one where I put half red and half yellow tissue paper on the freezer paper and ironed it so they just barely touched, making an enelope with a diagonal line dividing the red from the yellow side.  Alas, I've already sent it.

I also tried using wrapping paper.  It didn't stick as well--it was a little bumpy in some spots, but it did work.

9  Re: Need Help: Making First Freezer Paper Stencil in Stenciling: Discussion and Questions by maddiesmibbs on: April 25, 2007 05:27:32 PM
I'm probably not the best person to answer this (I've only done like 10 stencils) but I'll try to help. I see two ways you could approach this:

1.  Have the deer/pond/frog (everything that's dark in your design) be what is painted, meaning you want freezer paper over all the light green.  The spots on the deer would be hard.  You could either do "bridges"and paint over the bridge after you take the stencil out, or you could just cut the spots out of freezer paper and iron them on after you iron on the main part (does that make any sense?). 

2.  Kind of reverse the design--have the dark green be freezer paper and the light green be cut out.  You'd need a shape to outline the design in.  Basically what it'd look like is a square (or whatever) of ink with a the deer and stuff the color of the bag.  Again, I think you'd need two stencils: one with a big square cut out of it and the other the shape of the deer with the little spots cut out.  I'm thinking that this would be easier.

SORRY if this is all completely duh or completely incomprehensible.  It's hard to work out where you are from your post.

This might help ('scuse my mad paint skillz)

10  Fabric samples in What the heck can I do with THIS? by maddiesmibbs on: April 21, 2007 05:46:31 PM
So a billion years I got a ton of fabric samples from the scrap exchange.

I don't know what to do with them.  I have almost no sewing skills past pillow cases, and a sewing machine that's older than my mom.  My best idea is to do a crazy bag with a bajillion different colored pockects.  What can I do?

Here's the label, if that helps.
