That looks great! Do you remember where you found the pattern?
If you're doing steampunk, you could also use buckles instead of buttons. Small ones are pretty cheap when bought in bulk  Smiley


It's great that you are feeling better now! *hug* (if consent)

These are totally awesome. I am jealous of them. I should make some, no?

Thanks!

I think everyone should make a pair. Or a few Wink

I imagine some thick felt would work great as well
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / tutorial: quick and pretty fabric advent calendar on: November 27, 2013 04:23:29 AM
I made an advent calendar, and as I think its pretty cute I made a tutorial.

It was done in about an hour, so this would be just the right project for last-minute crafting.





Basically its a long strip of fabric, sewn together at one end. Everyday, one opens one bow and one sweet will come out.


You will need:
- fabric
- ribbon
- number tags (I attached the file with the ones I used at the end)

- scissors
- hole punch 1 and 1 3/4 inch (optional)
- stapler to attach the number tags to the ribbon
- needle and thread, or a sewing machine

Cut your fabric:
The strip of fabric should be wide enough to comfortably wrap the biggest of your sweets with a bit (at least an inch) of overlapping.

To determine the length of your fabric: Arrange all the sweets in a line with about one inch of space between each of them. Measure how long your line of sweets is, then add 5 to 10 inches at every end This is the lenght of fabric you will need, probably you will need to piece it together.  If you want, you can seam the rectangle, I didnt bother to do so.

Then sew the one end shut as shown in the sketch And, tadaaa: You're done. Now it just needs to be filled.


To fill it, start with the closed side. Put in one sweet, tie the section off with a piece of ribbon and attach the tag with the number 24 to the ribbon. Then repeat until you reach number 1.

If you have questions, please ask!


I also added the file with the numbers: For the smaller circles I used an one-inch circle punch. The larger ones are 1 3/4 inch in diameter. The file is in A4 format, but I laid everything out in a way that it should work on letter-format paper as well.

Great idea  Grin

And it's so clever to use the strawberry as a handbag!

Hi everyone Smiley

As my old slippers were falling apart, I made new ones.
The post with the old ones, containing the tutorial/pattern

People keep telling me that I look a bit insane wearing them, but I like them Smiley
The fabric is so soft and fluffy, like velvet with a very short pile? And the colours are so great!!!









Making of (Maybe this helps with the pattern?)
