1  Dr Who Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by calicotortoise on: December 29, 2011 07:23:11 PM
Confession--I'm not really a huge fan of Dr Who. I've watched a few times, but that's about it. However, my sister loves it. So, come Christmas time, what's a crafty sister to do?

No pattern, I just sort of "winged it".  

I made it large enough to hold her Kindle, and another book, which is a useful thing for a librarian.

2  Purple poncho in Crochet: Completed Projects by calicotortoise on: March 26, 2011 04:53:18 PM
When I was in elementary school (in the '70s), my mom crocheted ponchos for me. By far, my favorite was one made of varigated purple and lavendar yarn.  I think I would have worn it everyday if she'd have let me.  Anyway, I taught myself to crochet a couple of years ago, but hadn't ventured into making garments for myself yet. But, I ran across a pattern for a poncho in an old crochet magazine (that if have since mislayed, I'll update it if I find it) and had to do it.  It turned out to be a great stash-buster, it used 10 different yarns.  I got to use up a bunch of purple and lavendar yarns that I'd collected doing afghans for nieces and other little girls; including two kinds of really soft, varigated purple yarns--like the poncho my mom made me!  It is also really cool because each band of color uses a different stitch or technique. 

Hope you enjoy!
(Sorry for the picture quality, I used my iPhone camera, so the photo isn't the greatest.)

3  Bathrobe for my horse in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by calicotortoise on: March 26, 2011 04:33:41 PM
This is my first sewing project for a horse.  It's actually a cooling sheet, but it serves the same purpose as a bathrobe, lets them cool off slowly after exersize during cool weather.  The pattern is Suitability 7900.  I used red anti-pill fleece, wide velcro and webbing for the straps and head band, and trimmed it with black braid I picked up for $1 at a yard sale.  (In the pic, he isn't sporting the headband/hoodie part.)

It wasn't complicated, but it was a LOT of fabric.  This is sort of a practice run for another sheet I'm planning that will be a little more decorated and detailed.

Thanks for looking.
