21  Re: Fill A Purse Swap Round 4 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by SkitzoLeezra on: May 27, 2009 09:36:50 AM
I sewed a little matching case for my swap partner's tampons so they wouldn't roll around her bag but decided that it was just too boring, as is.  The dotted interior fabric reminded me of a starry night. 

Soooo I embroidered something on the inside lining, all the while hoping that she isn't sensitive about her cycle/moon phase.

Hey Everybody,
Check out what Spotnik sent me!
She DID GOOD!  I love everything!!
Love the fancy yarn she used for the purse, love the size, love the green lining - just perfect. 
Crocheted lip balm cozy - fabulous.
Camera cozy - a perfect fit and great colors.  I tried to take a photo of the camera in the cozy but try as I might, just could not figure out how to do that.
Zip wallet - great size. (oops, forgot to take a photo of that)
Keyring and magnetic closure bracelet - will be worn practically every day because I have a lot of pink, green, black in my closet.
Paper and pens - I have a pen addiction so welcome new products.
Spotnik - immensely happy to have you as a swap partner and appreciate the time and thought that you put into my items.  It is so neat to see what your talents bring to ME!  Wink  I feel special, I tell ya!
Much appreciation and big hugs,  Skitzo Leezra

24  Re: Square-bottomed canvas bucket :: Now with TUTORIAL:: in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by SkitzoLeezra on: April 09, 2009 03:54:04 PM
I made these buckets from the tutorial but forgot to post them here.  They were in the "curse word swap" and let me tell ya, I said plenty of curse words when I realized that I had stitched the labels UPSIDE DOWN!  THREE times!
My mom said that would make interesting hats.

But I got over it and sewed a handle to the opposite side so partner could decide which to present to visitors.

Thanks so much for posting this tutorial!
I made these necktie flowers  and hot-glued the petals to a round disc cut from an expired giftcard. Covered the disc with a fabric scrap.  Then glued on an old earring. 
Here's a whole 'nother mess of flower brooches, topped with earrings and vintage pins.

Yeah, I have one of those too, for my embroidery floss and jewelry supplies.   Smiley
If a furnishing looks like it was used in a municipal building, I want it!

27  Re: TUTORIAL: Singlet Style Shopping Bag (like the plastic shopping bag) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by SkitzoLeezra on: January 28, 2009 10:13:22 AM
I made them longer and slightly thinner so they will fit over the shoulder.  Since you can't sew the handles and then turn the bag, I kind of faked it by sewing the top of the handles RST and then hand sewed the bottom, but I wasn't happy with the results.  Does anyone have any suggestions for doing this?? 

Hi Yorkiemischief, I modified the pattern to include longer straps but kept the same width, thus I could sew the handle as directed.  Perhaps a wider width would help ya.  Here is a photo of my modified bags that fit on the shoulder.

28  Rubber stamp storage in Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions by SkitzoLeezra on: January 26, 2009 02:56:44 PM
Before the new fangled acrylic mounted removable rubber stamps came out, I found a cool flat file for my rubber stamp storage.  Great one layer storage for easy viewing. 

LOTs of stamps and paper goods fit in this big maamajamma!

Hey Jennieingram, why don't you post your recipe for methamphetamine next year because it would be LESS addictive than this stuff!!
Strange thing, I had less than a full bag of chocolate chips, how does that happen?  So I melted some white chocolate bark and poured that atop the melted chocolate chips and swirled it around.  Worried that it might then be TOO sweet, I sprinkled some coarse kosher salt on top.  LOVE me some sweet and salt combo!
Thanks for making me a Christmas crackhead, Jennie!

30  Embroidery transfers from vintage coloring books in Needlework: Completed Projects by SkitzoLeezra on: December 19, 2008 11:54:47 AM
So my buddy Kay gave me some vintage coloring books, from the 1960's.
When PerachYafeh suggested a few unusual holiday ideas for a tea towel swap, I perused the coloring books for her "Ice Cream Soda Day June 20" image.

First I tried the pink transfer pencil which totally did not work so then traced with the tried and true black transfer pen. 

Ironed the image and started stitching.

I took liberty with PerachYafeh's idea of "5 a day" food pyramid.

Cupcake image from the same coloring book.
