1  My first two coiled fabric bowls in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by isnessofwhatis on: May 15, 2010 04:25:34 PM
Inside of the first non-tester (machine tension was a pain to figure out) fabric bowl I made. I like the look of the smaller and closer together zig zag stitches better than the longer and wider ones. It takes more time, but the resutl is worth it. The thread is a gold color. 38 feet of rope was used to make this bowl.  It measures 3 inches deep and 8 inches in diameter.


this is the outside pic of the bowl above


This next one is a bowl I made for my ministers 25th wedding aniversary, the party was today. It's made from a remnant of a home dec fabric. The freying made it look more unique. It's a dark silver color with lighter silver flowers and some blue accents. the shape it took was totally by accident. the loops were ment to be verticle but ended up in a horizontal 3-d shape.  This "mistake" is giving me some really good ideas for future bowls/baskets.  The pic doesn't show it very well but the loops really are all the same. 45 feet of rope was used to make this bowl.


So, let me know what you think!

3  My sock monkeys in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by isnessofwhatis on: February 05, 2010 06:14:15 PM
Last Fall I started off making just the one monkey for my niece whos nickname is Monkey.  Then I had several other people ask me to make one for them too (the extra cash was fun too!).

Here is my first monkey I made for my niece, my brother named it Fe-Fe laFeet.


This is a monkey my mom had me make for my great aunt.  I just learned today that the aunt who got this monkey was put in hospice this week.  She's in her 90's, has alzheimers, isn't eating more that a few small bites per day and as a result she weighs under 100 pounds and she is 5'8", and she isn't walking anymore.


These are two monkeys I made for one of my ministers.  The one with the green and white stripes went to my other ministers grandson.  He HAS to sleep with it every night.  I'm the human in the picture.
