I love how Harry Potter's glasses take up his entire face!

Cookie decorating is hard on the hands, and congrats on finding a unique way to decorate each cookie!
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Sale table linens = new purse! (4 imgs) on: August 07, 2009 09:40:29 AM
I made this out of three 16x16 cotton napkins that were very cheap on sale and had a cute design. The pattern for the purse is my own.
I wouldn't count it as a recon as I didn't actually use any of the existing seams.

The main body is one whole napkin that I pleated on both sides (first time with pleats, too!).
The handle is just slightly shorter than twice the length of the napkin and was made with 4 separate pieces of fabric... I am quite proud at how well the pattern lined up.
I sewed the pocket onto the lining (scrap fabric) an added an edge at the top to cover all the seams. The opening is quite wide and stays closed pretty well when it's on... I was going to added a button but decided there was no need.









This is my first professional(ish) looking sewing project and I'm really happy how it turned out! Hope you like it! Questions/comments/criticisms welcome Smiley

I'm pretty sure I could never have that in my house because I'd be afraid of it!
But that is a really neat idea!
7  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Cake Pops on: July 26, 2009 05:18:07 PM
I've made the cupcake pops twice... the first time they looked awful and I used baking chocolate becuase I had no candy melts, and made chocolate with vanilla frosting.

The second time I bought the candy melts, and did vanilla cake (coloured pink) with cream cheese icing.


My friends adored them both times so this recipe is a big hit no matter what they end up looking like... but yours look pretty good!

They're so cute!

Assuming they're vegan, do you have a recipe?
I'm going to a tea party in the summer and I'd like to make something vegan friendly Smiley

hi everyone,

Yesterday I got a bit bored and was feeling crafty so I made this:

I loosely used the tutorial here:
http://blog.craftzine.com/archive/2009/05/papier-mache_floral_brooches.html?CMP=OTC-5JF307375954

But instead used a cereal box and covered the backs of each layer with mod podge and some magazine pages (the paint didn't cover the cereal box image) and glued sequinned string for the centre. I didn't have a compass so I used various circular objects and traced... I would recommend a compass if you have one, and they have dimensions listed which would have been very helpful.

I didn't have a pin-back on hand or else I would show it in action, but it's really lovely and sort of looks like it could be made of wood. It's definitely not perfect, but looks professional enough to wear ... it's perfect for summer!

Here's another shot, which shows what it looks like in the light:
