HippieKender your craft work is just awesome...
But how did you manage to color it in such a symmetric form, did you fold that piece of cloth before coloring it???
Would like to know its details.....
Thank you so much!
Yes, the fabric was folded and bound before adding the dye. There is a link in the first post for the video tutorial I followed.

HippieKender, I am totally in awe of that wallet!  As a mediocre (at best) seamstress, wallets look nearly impossible to me in general, and your is just so cute!

You can totally make one! BabyAngel has a great tutorial here: http://babyangelsparadise.blogspot.com/2007/12/so-i-needed-wallet.html
She does a great job of explaining, and the pattern is easily altered to fit your needs.

Whoops!  I forgot that I said I was going to do another purse for this swap! I did make one, and posted it awhile back... Here's a couple pics

The purse. Much better size and I love the fabric my partner picked.

New wallet. LOVE! My old wallet was so big it could have been a purse all on it's own! This is compact and lightweight and adorable (imho Cheesy )

Tissue Cozy. My partner got this fabric from a previous swap and I love it.  As a mom, I always need tissues!

My partner also sent me a tin of Altoids - I love the mints and I save the tins to re-purpose! She also sent me a tiny purse-size brush and a business/gift card holder, but I seem to have misplaced those pictures Sad  

A couple more pics and a little bit more info can be found here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=373147.msg4391625#msg4391625

And, now, I should get back to packing my house. I was going to try to be crafty today, but when I went to grab supplies I realized I had already packed 95% of my craft supplies Cry Very sad.

Awesome, definitely! These patchwork skirts are a pain to make - even on a small scale.

The scrapbook paper does a pretty good job of masking the embossed lid. I made travel candles out of newer Altoid tins and covered them with scrapbook paper. I'd say, unless you were REALLY looking for that embossing, you'd never notice it. Especially if you are layering images.

Awesome!  I love yours! 
I think you can steam it (like in a vegetable steamer) on the stove. Just wrap it in plastic wrap first? Not sure though.
Or, just don't wash it, ha ha!

HippieKender - Looks like it got a little wrinkled in shipping, you might want to iron it out some. Cheesy
Yeah, sorry about that! I was too impatient to take pics - no time to bust out the iron!  Wink

green, I love those flowers.

I received my mug rug from zigg13pra today!  She also went with my kitchen colors Smiley  It also looks like she was inspired by my wists and went with a dresdon plate inspired design. Love it!


With mug (excuse the blurry shot. I haven't figured out the new/used camera yet):

Hmm, that picture makes the rug look absolutely huge. It's not really gigantic, it's a perfect size! Objects photographed by an amateur photographer may appear larger than life!  Cheesy

Thank you, Zigg13pra, i love it!
