Please, please, be honest! I can take it. I'm not posting to get my ego stroked. I want and need constructive help. Ignore the piece of thread on the face. I don't know how that stray thread landed there!
I need help making this doll look right. What can I do to the next one to make it better? Is it the hair? I know the mouth is kooky. Should I scrap the whole pattern? My 26 yo daughter said, & I quote, "That is the ugliest doll I have ever seen."
Hi, I had been admiring the pencil rolls on this site - I finally made one. It's for my grandson. It measures approx. 10X27" and holds 21 pencils. I did make a fatter slot at the beginning of the roll to hold a pencil sharpener. It is held closed with a piece of elastic.
This is the simple water bottle carrier I whipped up for my grandson, who just had to have one. I didn't feel like going through the major hassle that I did when I made my own insulated one. This is simply a leg of a pair of denim shorts, no lining, no insulation. I also just sewed the botton shut straight across. I didn't even box the corners, it was just too thick. It is unlined so I did a french seam on the side seam to make it just a little neater. It holds a 16 ounce bottle.
This is the Angel Bag I made from a pattern off the internet. I don't remember where I got the pattern, but you can google "angel bag" and get it. It's about 12X6 inches. It is made from leftover denim & the plaid is an old sheet I got at the thrift store. In the original version, the plaid is to be on both sides, but I couldn't get the plaid on both sides to line up right, so I just omitted the one side and made it from denim instead.
I made each of the bags in the pattern. They all turned out very nice, except the one with the tied handle. I didn't care for that one. The handle just didn't tie very nicely. Here are pictures of bag "C" that I made for my daughter(black corduroy) & granddaughter(cotton) .
b]This is a wonderful pattern. The totes are just the right size & easy to make. The pink one I added velcro to close it. The black one has no closure. I don't know if you can tell, but there are 3 outside pockets on both the front & back sides of the bag. I highly recommend this pattern.[/b]/color]
This is my first Wonder Wallet by Lazy Girl. I was surprised that there were no "pattern pieces". Some parts of the instructions were confusing to me, but I muddled through. It is roomy & the coins really don't fall out. I wasn't in love with it enough to ever make another one.
