 Etsy, and it's Buddha. Let me correct that.   Embarrassed
1422  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Buddha for the Holidays! on: December 13, 2013 07:49:55 AM
 I drew my (future) SIL's name for Christmas this year and I was so excited. She loves Buddha's and I had already purchased her this fabric just in case I got her. I have been looking for something like this for a while.
 She likes bigger bags so I used Emmaline Bag pattern. It's approx. 15" wide, 9" tall, and about a 4" bottom so it can hold a lot. This was my first time doing an intermediate pattern. It is far from perfect but I think it turned out nice. The bottom has a plactic base that you made a pillow type opening for and then put the interior over. I was unsure at first because I have never done anything like that but it worked!

 It also has two interior pockets. One with a zipper.

 and one without done in the exterior fabric for a little pop.

 Thanks for looking. I plan to use this as her wrapping and add all her goodies inside. I am so excited to give it to her. I hope she likes it!
 Oh, and I plan to make another one for my sister's birthday in Apri, in a different fabric of coursel. I think that one will turn out a little better since I am more familiar with the pattern.

 Just finished this up for my (future) SIL last night. She loves Buddah's and I was so excited when I found this fabric. This is a larger purse and it is far from perfect but I am still proud of it. It was my first intermediate pattern. It has a plastic piece in the base and you do this pillow type fold to keep it there and then you put the liner in.  Huh  Turned out though! It has two pockets inside, one with a zipper and one without. I already plan to do another one for my sister for her birthday in April. I figure it would be a little nicer since I am more familiar with the pattern. I am going to give this to my SIL with all her gifts inside, it's sort of the wrapping.

 inside pocket #1 (sorry the pic is a bit fuzzy)

 and the focus pocket.

 Okay, here are some better pics of Kwality570's monster calendar!!!!!!! (Imagine the Muppets type yelling there  Tongue )

 Ignore my messy desk, that means I am being productive.  Wink

Love that top hat!
and the mythical date

 See, lots more colorful. Sorry for the first round of dark pics. It was late and dreary out when I was getting pictures.
 Thank you so much Kwality570! I have it up at my desk and several co-workers have stopped by to look at it! We all love it!!!!

 Smeddley - Almost the exact same thing happened at my house last night. My hubs was opening a Christmas card from my family and he froze and started screaming "Glitter! Baby, help! Glitter!!!". It was a false alarm and just hologram paper. I laughed for a good hour and did impressions.  Roll Eyes
 Lindyv321 - Mmmm those mint thins make me want to throw my diet aside and dig in! Yummy looking.
 amymarie78 - Fantastic idea for the archeology! And the scarf looks nice and warm. I could use it right now.  Embarrassed

 Way to go! We have such a talented group here.

Battle/Challenge:  December - Bag of Holding
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Buddah Bag
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: It's a bag and it will definitely hold things.  Wink  I made this bag for my (future) SIL. She loves Buddah's and I was so excited to find fabric with them on it. This has two inside pockets. This was my first intermediate pattern. I was so nervous to try it. It has a plastic piece at the bottom. First time I ever did that.  Tongue  Anyways, I am happy with how it turned out and I hope she likes it.

yoopidou - I love those Elves! I just bought a fairy doll made with the string wrap like that at a craft show, not cheap at all! I wanted to figure out how to make them. If you would share your secret, or a link, I would be forever in your debt!
 I got the most amazing package ever from Kwality570. A reusable calendar! I know they have a word for them that sounds better but I can't think of it. But it's the kind that you can use year after year. It is so adorable! For some reason my pics are really dark. I am going to try to take better pics in the morning. It's bright and cheerful really. I put today's date and my two favorite pics, April and Friday.  Grin Each picture is CO cute. SO CUTE! I love these monsters.

 Oh and she sent me these awesome stencils from her gelli print(er). I already have ideas how to use these. They are so neat and iridescent and cool.

 Thank you so much for swapping with me Kwality570, you never disappoint!

 I love this swap and I just moved so I can use more art for my walls! Count me in!

 Cool bear hoop FancyButch! I like the color choice and the detail!

 My package to Kwality570 seems to be in limbo. I have been tracking it and it hasn't moved since the 9th, the day I sent it. Called the post office and they said it wasn't guarenteed to be there in 2 days and to wait until the 15 before trying to have them figure it out. They weather isn't really bad here so no excuses!  Angry
1430  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / These foxes say nothing on: December 11, 2013 12:17:12 PM
 We moved into a new home a couple months ago and I wanted to put some art work up that was no so obviously my stuff. I decided to try some abstract since I normally draw girls.
 I picked two foxes playing in the snow. It will be a seasonal thing to put up.
 The background was done in metallic paints and richer, warm tones.

 then I painted over it all with white, cream, black and a touch of blue. I originally wanted this to be more textured but it was my first time doing it and sort of chickened out. Here is a close up of the crouching fox.
