1  Kaffe Fassett's Tropical Frothy Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Weltanschauung on: July 27, 2008 09:40:06 PM
Here's my version of the Tropical Frothy Quilt.  I adore the fabric for the back.  I didn't have enough, so I put in a strip of scraps from the front.  Inside I put wool batting.  I plan to hand-quilt the blue triangles on the border once winter comes (when it's cold outside and I can snuggle under the quilt as I'm quilting it!).

2  craft bucket in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Weltanschauung on: October 06, 2007 03:43:10 PM
Hey, just made this craft bucket in about 3 hours. It's for crafty supplies or knitting, etc. Kinda fun on a rainy afternoon.  Here's where I learned how:

http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/cr_needle_arts/article/0,2025,DIY_13768_5299326,00.html

I changed the pattern a bit.
1. I ironed interfacing onto the non-denim fabric for extra stability.
2. I put a circle of denim onto each section (the denim and the non-denim sections).  I simply opened the zipper of the jeans before sewing the circles onto the tubes.  Then I pulled it all through the zipper.
3. I didn't make a circle of cardboard for the bottom. The double denim circles hold it nicely.

I'm not really into Western gear, but for some reason, this piece of fabric spoke to me!  Yee Haw!

4  Canada Day Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Weltanschauung on: June 29, 2005 04:22:08 PM
July 1 is Canada Day, so I decided to make a bag to carry around all day.  Here it is!  The front and pocket are dollar store flags, and the back is a bandana from the same dollar store.  Cost about $6 and I can use it for years!  (Only once a year!)  It is, of course, in Jordy style.

5  Handbag - reminds me of the 70s in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Weltanschauung on: June 23, 2005 02:37:23 PM
For those of you who remember the 70s, doesn't this fabric remind you of those flowers we used to stick into our bathtubs so we wouldn't slip?  And the lining reminds me of Spirograph!

The bag itself is a Jordy with a magnetic closure and a pocket.  It has interfacing, batting and lining.

6  Simple Pink Asian Handbag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Weltanschauung on: June 23, 2005 02:31:37 PM
Here's a handbag I made!  The pattern is from "Bags With Style" by Stephanie Kimura, but it would be very easy to make on your own.  The corners are flat (not Jordy-style), and it has iron-on interfacing, batting and lovely pink lining.

The purses are waterproof.  The transfers were made to put on clothes (like tshirts) that are washed again and again.  I have washed a couple, and they are fine.  The transfer part gets wrinkled, especially when I'm turning the bag inside out after making it, but a warm (not hot) iron smooths it out quite well.
I haven't tried putting a transfer on dark fabric.  What I HAVE done is put one an applique onto black velvet.  Here's a photo.  The first two rows of beads attach the "applique" to the velvet.
I also put batting between the layers to give it some padding.  Works well.



I love the pink lining:

Thanks so much.
Yes, I do bead it all by hand.  It takes quite a long time.  Recently, I've reduced the number of beads and sequins to save some time.  They still have a "bling factor" but they're not as elaborate.  People I give them to don't seem to notice!  I've been thinking of selling them, but they take about 5 hours each (after I've found the pics and downloaded them), and I would want to make some money!  I guess that's the problem with crafting - do we ever really get paid what we put into it?

Here are some less elaborate ones that I made.

10  beaded eiffel tower pillow - and NEW world pillow in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Weltanschauung on: December 01, 2004 09:09:49 AM
I made this a while ago when I was going through an Eiffel Tower phase.  For some reason, I really like the architecture!  The pillow is beaded, in case you can't tell from the photo.  The pillow is about 7" by 10".



___________________________________________
This just added:

Here's a world pillow I beaded a while ago.  I traced the outline of the world onto white fabric and then drew a few lines across as a guide.  The world/globe is one of my favourite "symbols" if you can call it that.
