That's a very lovely brooch, but did you by any chance get that rose off a ring? Because I have exactly the same one:

I love the translucent red beads that you used! Can you share where you got them?

I got them from Oasis market in Birmingham - if you don't live near there, I could send you some if you like??


And yes, the clasp is on the side - it's a little heart Tongue


Thanks for your feedback, everyone Smiley much appreciated

5  "Alice in wonderland" necklace - with pocket watch! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Bolshy Walshy. on: January 22, 2009 02:54:55 PM
Cut up an old (non-silver) chain, and put beads and stuff Smiley


Some of the little beads are hearts, I wanted to make some little teacups out of clay, but I'm not so hot at clay Sad

I bought the pocket watch from Spain, but it was juts on a crappy plain chain when I bought it



Comments and critisism welcome Smiley

6  Re: DIY Kit Swap Round 11 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by Bolshy Walshy. on: November 28, 2008 04:18:39 PM
I received!! And on my birthday!! (Yesterday, 27th November - I turned eighteen Cheesy)
I didn't take pictures as I was opening it, I had friends round for a small party so I forgot Tongue
But here are the pictures after the friends departed:



A pretty project bag - very well made, might I add!







Huck weaving instructions, embroidery thread, huck towelling





A needle book - this image is from a necklace on my wists, I liked the necklace so much because it reminded me of the women's suffrage propaganda in England, so it's lovely to see it embroidered - I assume it's hand embroidered, but the stitches are all so tiny and uniform! I could never embroider like that!!





Workbasket magazines!! I don't think we had these in England, so they'll make for an interesting read Smiley They also have some cute crochet patterns, too






Crochet hook roll! With thread snips, crochet hooks, and tape measure. That little grey hook is actually mine, I was just excited that I had somewhere to put it Tongue





10mm!!!  Think of all the scarves I'll make with this  Shocked

Thankyou so much, I really enjoyed this swap, and I'm glad I had you as a swap partner (especially as it was my first swap:))

7  Stitch tension screwed up in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by Bolshy Walshy. on: November 07, 2008 07:47:17 AM
Okay, lets say the blue is the fabric, the green is the underneath stiches, and the red is the top stitches - why do the red stitches do this?




Any way that I adjust the tension wheel, it's fine for the first few stitches, then it just ends up as a line of string, with the underneath stitches going all the way through the fabric.
Then the fabric gets wrinkly and I stop sewing out of frustration.

8  Pencil dress, Late forties?? in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Bolshy Walshy. on: September 19, 2008 09:25:28 AM
I made this at the start of the year, the first wearable item of clothing I've ever made. I've only just got round to taking photos of it  Tongue
And please excuse my squinty, tired face, I've been at school all day...


Fabric:


The front:


The back:


I can't remember what pattern it was, I'll check later, but it was really simple Smiley

Pattern is by Simplicity, number 3539
My scanner is "having a day off", so here's a crappy phone picture:


It's really quite old - If you look on ebay, alot of old simplicity patterns have the same skirt-part, so you'd just need to figure out the top, I guess Smiley
