I wanted to make some little bags to keep tampons, etc in, for 'that time', so I came up with these!
The one on the left is a roll (like a painter's roll - geddit?!), with pockets for tampons and pads, and the one on the right is a little bag, for non-applicator ones, with a press-stud fastening for the ribbon, to fasten to my new hand-made bag's loop, so i can always find them!
The little bag is made from an old skirt, lined with sari material, and a hook and eye fastening, with a decorative button - it looks wonky in the picture, but it's not - I promise! There is a press-stud fastening the ribbon (it was meant to be an eyelet, but I picked up the wrong snaps - d'oh!!)
The tampon roll is made from an old skirt and pair of jeans, and is stitched with bright pink zigzag stitching.

Sorry for the dodgy pics - knew I should have asked my friend to take them!
I had a pressie to make for a friend, and I wanted to do something off my 50 Projects for 2010 list (not doing so well on that lol!), so I came up with Fairy!
She was based on a pattern in a Nikki Trench Amigurumi book, but I made her a bit more 'glam'!
Any comments or criticisms would be great - this is my first attempt at a 'real doll' - her eyes are little black beads sewn on, and I tried to sew on eyelashes, but I don't think it worked out so well.

Well, I was inspired by this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=350056.0, so I thought I'd have a go, and make one myself. I found a knackered old Cluedo on a charity stall for 50p, so I went for it, and six rolls of electrical tape later, here you go! It's totally wonky, and not flush, but it was my first go, so I'm happy enough for now - plus its one ticked off the 50 projects for 2010 Craftalong! Yay!!
Finished item.Plus an old PG tips box I covered with an old OS map.

I hope you like - I know it's a bit pants, but it's my first go!!
