1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Bombom amigurumi coinpurse on: May 20, 2010 07:43:47 PM

I made this for the science/geek OTT swap, my partner requested something crocheted, and preferred something useful so I adapted this ami pattern into a zippered coin purse. It is based off this free pattern:  http://wolfdreamer-oth.blogspot.com/2009/04/bombomb.html to add the opening I added an extra row in the middle with 4 sc's and the rest as a chain.

The zipper got sewn in by the tape using normal sewing thread.

I lined it with some taffeta fabric I had lying around, just cut out rough circles larger than the actual purse, which got sewn to the zipper tape

here's a shot of him squished flat
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / soft structured carrier on: January 12, 2010 12:15:57 AM
My current baby carrier is starting to fall apart, I needed a new one, found this tute: http://latebloomercrafts.blogspot.com/search/label/SSC and this is the result:

I used the shorter body length, interfaced the print fabric, and used the curved waist piece pattern, if (when) I make another one I'm using the straight waist pattern, the curved one is a PITA to sew. I like to wear the straps crossed in the back, like this:

I used 16" of webbing to connect to the male end of the buckle, next time I'll use 20". Also, next time the male end is going on the end of the strap instead of the female, the buckles sit in an uncomfortable place on the back.

All in all, I'm happy with this as a first attempt. here's another shot:

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / "free as a bird" T on: December 27, 2008 09:42:07 PM
I made this for the birds are beautiful swap

The cage is handpainted on, with stitching over the painted lines, and where the back of the cage would be. The bird is outlined in copper paint and stitched on jut in from the edge. In between, i freehanded "free as a bird", unfortunately it doesn't how up in the photo as it is a bit sublte.

I'm really proud of this one.
