1  Lampwork beads! in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by popple on: May 30, 2011 06:45:29 PM

I have just started lamp working in the last two weeks or so, and thought I would share some of the beads I've made so far!
The beads here are mostly SCA beads designed to match 9-10th century Viking garb. Some of them (the greens and crazy colored ones) were just for fun. I'm learning how to make and use stringers right now.

Any other Lampworkers out there?

2  Re: Post Photos of Your Tattoos! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by popple on: September 01, 2008 11:48:04 AM
Looking at all of the beautiful tattoos made me want to post my new ones!!

The one with the flowers isn't totally finished yet, its getting a third lily and the letters touched up. Its kinda hard to tell where it is, but its on my thigh, starting right at the bend of my hip and ending about 4 inches from my knee.
My treble/bass is actually a cover up of a tattoo that was posted on the original thread a year or so back, and was happy with it at the time, but later on i REALLY started to hate it. Thankfully my tattoo artist covered it up and did a really great job Smiley there's white behind the treble, but you can't really tell as it needs a touch up.

I also have "verliebt" tattooed on my inner lip, but alas, no pictures - it means beloved in German

Also, upon looking at the picture, the lettering is not nearly as blurry as it looks on the picture. It doesn't really do it justice. Its the last line from an e.e. cummings poem:

(i do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens;only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
nobody,not even the rain,has such small hands

3  Battered Fingers! (aka stained glass) in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by popple on: October 28, 2006 03:45:54 PM
So I thought that it would be a good idea to learn how to do stained glass. And while it was a blast, it almost killed me.

Without further ado

4  Nerdy Goodness. in Completed Projects by popple on: June 29, 2006 04:57:56 PM

So I lost the adorable pink cover to my jump drive on my keychain. I didn't want it to go harmed, so I was browsing sites for new covers I could buy when I saw one that had a teddy bear cover! Unfortunately, the site was in French and I doubt, for sale.
So I made my own  Grin

Original keychain

With added jump drive!

Action shot!!!

I've had to reupholster (what a weird word) many a clarinet and bass clarinet cases.

But again, I'm a slacker and didn't try to terribly hard. 

So basically, all you do is take new fun semi fuzzy fabric and lay it over the previous outline of the saxophone foam. (If you have to refoam it, I would lay in some of that almost couch-like foam and put the sax in, and leave it for a while to get an impression).

Then...turn to hot glue! Just go around the corners and tuck the fabric in all of the little tight spots and hot glue it down. Don't forget to add a little slack for the sax though.

Is this making sense? I'm not totally sure. But here are some pictures of my latest case. Its held up for two years now.

This is the outline of the case. Actually, the inside of this one is lined with Styrofoam, so that's something to think about (I didn't do that though, it came that way- I can't imagine it being too difficult)

A close up of the inner workings (you can tell its getting a bit bare- I march, so I'm extra hard on my case)

And the clarinet in there, snug as a glove (yay for slant rhyme!)

I hope that was at least semi helpful...

6  since I didn't want to cut up my chucks... in Shoes: Completed Projects by popple on: June 16, 2006 10:58:06 PM
I saw all of the ADORABLE Mary Jane's out of converses on here, and I have the perfect pair for mary janes, but they are red plaid wool. They stopped making those babies in the 80's and if I botched them, I'd never forgive myself.

So I thought I'd take a gamble and botch some men's dress shoes from the thrift store (I wear a size 5 in men's, so I'm not sure who turned those bad boys in)

Originally- cute but bad on the feet.

And then...

A little rough around the edges, I know, but I'm fixing that later...Too much work for right now Smiley

7  GHOSTBUSTERS!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by popple on: June 07, 2006 07:42:42 PM
So this is my first skirt. Its not the best, but its cute. And it took forever to make because the site that I got the Tute (not here, don't be alarmed) was VERY wrong in its measurements.

The fabric is fine, those are rainbow panties you see.

  I just recently got back from Europe, and while I was there,  I thought that being in Salzburg and all, it would be a good time to get a bass clef tattooed on my back ( I play Bassoon). I'm 16, so in the states its illegal for me to get one without a parent (my parents would never let me get one). So I decided to take advantage of my situation. Its a pretty small, but I didn't want anything big and flashy, just small and classy (pathetic, I know.)

9  my slouch purse (edit) and now...iPod cozie! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by popple on: June 27, 2005 02:23:01 PM
So, I jumped on the bandwagon and made one too...out of an old dress and adorned with an old necklace.

and a close up

I know that there are weird little frizzies on it, but I haven't had time to clean it up yet...so just use your imagination.

special thanks to Tinafish for the Tute. I would have been lost without it Smiley

EDIT: and now an Ipod cozie...It looks a little wonky on here, but it is straight...not all curvy like my silly camera likes to think it is...

10  HELP! LATE BIRTHDAY SHIRT in Stenciling: Discussion and Questions by popple on: June 19, 2005 11:34:45 AM
So I posted this shirt in the completed projects, because I kinda thought that it was done.

Then I got some comments, and realized who this shirt was for (a VERY picky  boyfriend)

I took some paint to an image of the shirt so I could preview it, but i'm torn...change it or no?


What may be...
