Did you get it cold or too hot?  And have you shaken the bottle?

Wow - I've never heard of Biscornu before.  Are they just decorative?  Can they be used as ornaments?

Regardless, yours are lovely!

Oh my.  I'm blinking away tears right now.  What a sad story and what a gorgeous quilt.  I know that her family will appreciate the thought, love and prayers that went into it and will treasure it.

3297  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Embroidered Purse from an Embroidered Skirt on: December 28, 2010 06:10:47 PM
For the current Friends of Craftster Raffle swap (come join!), I made a purse out of a skirt that I was going to donate.  The requirements were to upcycle something into something else.  I reused the outer skirt, the lining, and the tie.  The only thing I used that was new was the interfacing and thread. Cheesy  No pattern, just cut and went with what was in my head.  

After:

The tie was on the skirt as well, as a belt-like thing and I thought it was perfect to close the purse with.

Woo hoo!  I'm in. Cheesy  I hope what I made is up to snuff!

So here's my offering ... a medium-sized black purse with a tie close.  There are also seed beads decorating the embroidery.

In a previous life, it was this skirt:

Okay, I spent the last couple hours sewing and I have my item (a purse), my info is sent in ... WOOT.  I will post a pic once I'm approved. Cheesy

Alright, in cleaning out my closet (it's been on my 'to do' list for three years now), I found an old skirt I was going to donate.  However, it would make a great purse.  Only thing is ... can I use new interfacing?  As far my mental plans go, that'd be the only 'new' thing - the lining and such would also be from the skirt.
