301  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Left over materials BDU purse on: September 03, 2007 06:57:44 PM
If you look back I made a BDU messanger bag for my son for school. Anyway I took the leftovers and made a purse. The flower is on a pin. That way if it annoys me there I can put it elsewhere.
Don't mind the stray string, they're just bits that fell off me and onto the bag,

Made a pocket up front for my cell


And my purty flower

Would you believe I still have scraps left over......
302  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / BDU Messanger Bag on: August 26, 2007 02:46:13 PM
My husband picked up a messanger bag for my oldest(He's 11) for school. Well after 3 days of school the bag wasn't working. Was too small for him so I decided to make my own for him. I took 2 of my husband's worn out BDU (Battle Dress Uniform) tops and my seem ripper and took the whole thing apart. Reconstructed it into this new messanger bag for my boy. It's big enough that he can fit his books, lunch, and his gym clothes in it. I also added a key ring for him to attach his cell phone to. Plus you gotta love all the extra pockets.
Bag closed.

303  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / The not so easy dinning room chair make over, on: August 24, 2007 07:31:56 AM
First sorry for the no before picks. This is a dinning room set we bought while we were stationed in Turkey. After 2 kids, 3 moves since, and 9 yrs. the fabric was ruined.
Here was the interesting part when I started the first chair I cried. The fabric and cushions were glued and stapled to the chair!!! There was to just popping the seat part off. I had to rip off the fabric and trim and redu it the way they did!!!!!!!!! By the time I was done I was sooo sore. Anyway here it is.

After a few weeks away from that fabric I made a fabric basket for the table. I'll fill it later. That was kinda fun to sew.
304  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Not made from Polymer clay but for it on: August 24, 2007 07:23:55 AM
I don't know how it is with everyone but I like to be able to move around the house with my craft projects. I call it mobile crafting. Sometimes in the living room or outside on the porch. I came up with this for my smaller polymer projects.

It is a glass shadow box I picked up from the $1 store.

I did a reverse glass painting with a image I found on yahoo and decopaged behind it and lined the inside lid with felt.

With the glass on top I can work right on it and keep all of my supplies or extra clay inside!
Before I forget that's not a tail on her it some flames shooting out from abound her feet. I didn't like it but was stuck with it after the glue dried.
I' think I'll make one for my mom for her mobile crafting.
Thanks for looking. Grin

You can't tell by the pics but the felt is textured.

307  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sad Susie Sad Eyes on: August 11, 2007 10:06:05 AM
So I've been watching the revamped dolls on here for awhile and I figured I'd give it a try.
See I have a little COCD (Crafting Obsession Compulsion Disorder)condition so I knew this could possibly send me over the edge and yet I did it anyway.
And it did....
Anyway found my Susie Sad Eyes on ebay in not so bad condition.
Did some research...... I big thanks to "tabloach" anyone interested in doing this she has a FANTASTIC website.
When the doll came in I popped her head off and started removing the hair.
Problem 1. She only had maybe 20 hair punched holes.
Solution. Had to draw and measure some of my own to punch through.
Problem 2. The stupid hair I bought wasn't working. It kept unraveling and knotting
Solution . Dismantled a old wig I had.
Anyway finished her did a little makeup update and gave her a deep purple eye color and Viola.

Oh I made this quick outfit with a felted sweater I had.
Thanks for looking!!!

So I come to craftster.
Alright enough sucking up.
I would love to start making cloth dolls. I am looking for a easy but cute doll pattern. Something like this:
Any ideas on patterns? I'll tell you I picked a troll pattern from online 6 months ago and it is still sitting in the package. Complication is not my thing.
309  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Help with dog coat!! on: August 03, 2007 07:17:50 AM
My mom just got a maltipoo pup as a gift and she asked if I could make a few coats for him for the upcoming winter. I said no problem......
So here's the problem I live in the south, her way up north. I've never seen the pup or what one looks like. Also I have never made a dog coat before. And from what has been explained to me this dog is tiny.
AHH help!?!?!?1
310  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / EGGstra special surprise jewery box and more on: July 26, 2007 12:19:31 PM
I come from along line of craftsters. Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother and so on.
My mom made these and since I haven't seen anything else like these on here I asked my Mom if I could put these on.
She has been working with different kinds of birds eggs for a long time. Yes they are all real eggs. I can't tell you the amount of hours as a kid I sat there helping her clean the eggs.
In my house I have carved emu, ostrich, chicken, turkey, and goose eggs. Here is a sample of 2 that I have that she made:
First is one she made special for me after my first child was born:
Goose Egg
Inside the egg is a scene of a bedroom with a cradle on the right hand side. Kind of hard to make the cradle out in the pic
This is a chicken egg jewelry box:
Yes the drawers do open:
