11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Day of the Dead WIP Tote + Crochet Hook Book on: August 26, 2010 12:40:38 PM
Did you use a pattern for the bag itself?  This is a great size and design, I'd love to make something similar (except for stitchers bwahahaha!).

So adorable, I love everything about this Smiley

Thanks Smiley I didn't use a pattern for this. It was actually pretty simple to do, but kind of hard to describe. Maybe I can sketch it out and post later.

Also, for those that love the fabric, it is Alexander Henry's Paseo de los Muertos from the Skulldiggery collection: http://www.ahfabrics.com/products.php?cat_id=510
It is part of the current collection and is widely available (so no need to kill for it, just buy some!)   Wink

Yay! I'm glad you liked everything, Lellibo. This is my first swap-it's so satisfying to see my projects in someone else's hands and know they are appreciated  Grin
I posted some more pics of the skull bag in the bags & purses board, if anyone wants to see it with the crochet hook "teeth" http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=357513.0

Can't wait to see what I'm getting.

I recently participated in my first Organized Craft Swap.  "Yarnies vs. Sewists"
My partner's favorite color combo is red and black, and she preferred something non-girly. Styles she likes are rock, goth and steampunk. That was kind of challenge for me, as my style is more vintage-modern and I love light colors! But there is a Goth that lurks deep within my soul (wish I had pics of my Robert Smith worship days). I made a WIP tote for her crochet projects based off of my original Monster Art Totes that I made awhile back (here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=340056.0). I found some great Alexander Henry fabric that fit my theme, and I lined the tote and made the side panels from it.





I also made a crochet hook book to fit inside the inside pocket of the tote. It is fleece and soft to protect the finish of her hooks.

I have made a couple of bags inspired by this post.

But I wanted mine to be big enough to fit an A4ish sized colouring book, so I used the extra space to add a name.

This was the first one I made, it was for my daughters friend Duke (modelled by my little monkey).

And this is the one I made for my daughter.  Her name is Genevieve, but I cheated  Cheesy

Thanks so much for the inspiration!!  Grin

OMGoodness! I'm so stoked to see this! Love them both!
If you do Flickr, I'd love to have you add these to my group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/hideousdreadfulstinky/

I just had to share this picture my son drew, inspired by his new hobby horse. It is a family portrait: Upside-down head Daddy, hobby Mama, upside-down head hobby Huck and six-eyed hobby Milo

On a recent visit to a friend's house, my almost-4-year-old son, Huck, got very attached to a hobby horse. So attached that we ended up taking it home with us. That sparked an idea off in my head, and I started to draft a pattern for my own stick horse. My original plan was to make this as a Toy Society drop, but Huck really likes it, so I may have to just make a new one.

Of course, this is my first go at this, so I see lots of things I can do to make my next one better. Less forehead, wider snout, crimp the ears so they stand up more. I'm happy with the mane-I found an amazing yarn store close to home where I plan to spend a lot of money. I'm still trying to figure out a way to properly attach the head. It pops off now and then. Hot glue, maybe. Inside and around the base (so it is stuck to the fabric as well as the stuffing inside). My husband suggested stuffing a bunch of red yarn on the inside so when the head pops off, the red yarn all falls out.



Here's Huck modeling it  Smiley

Oooh! So fun to see some stuff being posted in the gallery! I should send mine off already, but I feel like every time I say "I'm done!" I get one more idea for just a little something more Smiley

I did a tutorial for this - modified to correct some problems I had with the original bag - on my blog and on Flickr (lots of images, Flickr was much easier for this many pics):

Hi all, just checking in so I don't feel like such a lurker Smiley
My projects are finished-did a medium and a small-and I got some extra goodies to throw in. Although, I have another small rolling around in my head, and I think I just may do that one. I can't send out until after the 15th, anyway (a.k.a. payday!) since it's going across the pond!
