Great little earrings!


@ madcrafter: It's actually a box, not a spool. The beaded part is the lid Smiley

It think it would, Ludi. Badwolf and her hubby did a couple amazing projects together if I remember right.

Work continues on my research project. It was time to break out the paints for an accessory:

I think I like your photoshop version, Ludi.

Pattern and muslin (cheap-o thrift store sheet in this case) have been made for my research project. It's a simple, simple design, but I don't have enough outer fabric for redos.

Hmm, I could be well on my way to a Cinderella costume with that sheet. Well, if I get rejected from the circus...

...and better!
Here's what wendiek sent me!

A puffy, pumpkin-colored pouch:



I'm thinking of all sorts of uses for it.

In the background are four crocheted african violet (right, wendiek?) things. I will turn them into something. The colors are great!

And what's this?

A posable flamingo! Flamingos are one of my favorite animals. This one has joined my collection on my flamingo shelf. He's fitting in well with his flock.

Thank you, wendiek! I love what you sent- including the striped bag! Thanks for asking me to swap!

97  Scrappy Batik Bunting in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Calabaza on: September 28, 2014 09:30:46 AM


To make this bunting I took two batik cottons (one bright, jewel-toned rainbow; the other one in blues/greens/purple/roses) and tore them into 2-3" rectangles.



Next I arranged them on woven fusible stabilizer and ironed them in place.



I took my newly ironed fabric, folded and sewed it in half the hot dog way, flipped it out so the batik showed on both sides and sewed around the edges of the little rectangles on both sides using a variety of threads. Then I cut out my pretty-front-and-back triangles.


(truly terrible couch picture)

The final step was to trim off the rainbow netting from some yarn I had laying around, fold it over the tops (to keep both sides looking all right) and sew it in place using invisible thread. I used the chenille part of the yarn as the hanging string.



It was actually a pretty fun project! My least favorite part was machine sewing back and forth, catching all those rectangle edges, but the rest was entertaining!

Prompt:  September battle (board games)
Team: Randomizer
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Snaps and sugar!
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=435817.0#axzz3EclVhwMW
Brief Description: I thought I was done with these, but then I thought about making the flaps removable. Earlier this month I got my seam ripper out, added snaps then closed up the purse body and flaps separately. Now the flaps can be changed out or left off entirely!
Snaps and sugar has become my go-to family-friendly exclamation and is sometimes uttered in the heat of a board game Smiley

BTW, the post has some info on ironing fabrics into a new fabric.

Project Name: dress straps
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I picked up some dresses for work at a super price, but they didn't have straps. One mistake and... So, I wardrobe malfunction-proofed them. I sewed on small, plastic curtain rings to loop the straps through, making them adjustable.

Yep, the flap is huck woven. I couldn't find a good fabric at the store, so I had to make my own. Here's a better picture:

The version I made for me is in there too Smiley I went on a bit of a spree.

100  Snappy Purses (removable flaps!) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Calabaza on: September 23, 2014 05:03:57 PM
I got on a purse kick.



This one is mine

I tore 2-3 inch rectangles of two different batik-y fabrics, arranged them on woven fusible stabilizer, ironed them then sewed around the edges using various colors.

And this one is now my bud, Stickers:

I used huck fabric and craft thread to make a Mexican-blanket-inspired design then carefully cut and sewed around the edges to keep the threads from getting wonky (when you embroider huck, the threads dont show through to the wrong side.)

I thought I was done with them when an idea popped into my head: make the flaps changeable!

So, whenever I get a little bored, I can make up just a new flap and snap it on! Snap on, snap off Smiley
I tried out the idea on mine first, to make sure the snaps wouldnt make it too heavy. It seemed all right to me so I redid the other too!


The bottoms are wider than the tops.

Theyve got zippers for extra security (and for going flapless.)

Mine (mixed fabrics.)


Sticker's. I found some slightly textured material for the lining and pockets.

Both have two big outside pockets each hiding two small pockets. Inside the zippered part there are four small pockets.


I widened by an inch the pattern I made and used for this purse and this one

Thanks for looking!
