1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bamboo placemat purse on: April 12, 2009 06:51:57 PM

Today I did the initial sewing on the face and hands for a Gypsy quilt block I am doing. Not much progress, but once the face was sewn, it had to be washed to remove the marker I used to mark the features for sewing. While that was drying, I worked on a new purse. It is made from thrift store items. The material was a man's shirt for 50 cents, the handles were from a 50 cent handbag that was otherwise trash, and the bamboo is a placemat which came from a brand new pack of four that they had marked at 90 cents! The flower on the front I made with my embroidery machine and I added tiny gems to the center of each flower for a little bling. It has two pockets and strap to hold pens and my ever present notebook. It is a little small for me, and I prefer a long handle, but I couldn't pass up those placemats! Not bad for 1.25! Can you tell I'm over winter?

2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Girl's Jean Jacket on: April 10, 2009 04:44:19 PM
This is a picture of my first jeans jacket - and maybe my last. They aren't easy! I finally resorted to embroidering the unicorn as a patch and attaching it to the jacket. I couldn't get the thing to hoop because of the seams down the back, the thread frayed, the clips caught on the machine... but I like how it turned out. I don't know anyone who can wear it, but I got a deal on the jacket and figured I had paid little enough for it to use it for experimentation!

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Are these dolls or quilts or what? on: April 10, 2009 01:29:15 PM
I love fantasy crafts. They are so carefree. You can't go wrong no matter what colors you choose. And as far as I am concerned, the fewer rules, the better.



This blond fairy was my first. She really didn't fit into my decor because while I love to make fairies, I don't decorate with them.



The buyer commissioned this red haired fairy and these are pictures I sent to her as I was working to get her approval on color, etc. Unfortunately, I didn't take pictures of the finished work. What WAS I thinking! But the last photo shows the background fabric I chose.



After the fairies, I moved onto this wizard. I had that "beard" all over me! The owl feathers were sort of messy, too.



Slowly coming back to reality, I found this picture of an African Tribal Queen and had to do her. She looked so powerful!



This elegant lady is my latest. I just love these old dresses, but the corsets! Well I am glad to say there has never been a bone in anything I have ever worn!

I still own these last three.  One thing about crafting... you have to have somewhere to put it all!
