11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Canada Purse on: August 30, 2015 04:54:47 PM

Found this adorable outdoor Canada fabric at Fabricland. I made this purse. I really love it and how the colours came together. Unfortunately on the front pocket where it said Calgary, now it only says Gary and seems like a name. My mom asked me who Gary was. The two front pockets are magnetic and inside is just open.
The back is all the yellow Canada fabric but i didn't think to take a picture of it.
Thanks for looking.
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Leather Tiger hobo bag on: August 30, 2015 04:47:14 PM

I started playing with leather. This is made from Italian goat skin lather.
I had a lot of fun making this Hobo bag. I embroidered a tiger on one side. I wanted it to be just a subtle accent. There is a magnetic clasp inside and a polkadot cotton lining. It has an adjustable strap. The orange side is more of a coral, the pictures arent great.
Thanks for looking.
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Alice in Wonderland Totoro Messenger Bag on: August 30, 2015 04:26:15 PM

I made this messenger bag with fabric I bought from Spoonflower. I embroidered a little totoro in the bottom corner. It is quite large and could easily fit a laptop inside. Has two sections with a pocket on one side. The flap has the fabric reversed so when you lift it, it is right side up. It's really very sweet. I have been really into purses lately and this is only one of many I have made this summer.
14  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Hooded animal baby towel on: August 30, 2015 04:15:40 PM

Made these cute hooded baby towels for my daughters teacher, who left on maternity leave in Spring.
They are very easy and fun to make. I just by towels from the store and cut into a square. The extras are used for the hood part. I embroider in the top half of a square, then fold in half so the back of the stitching in covered. Sew together and then cover all the edges with bias tape. I made my own from an unused flannel baby sheet I had lying around. I zigzag stitched the bias tape. Vey fast. I also use these on my dog.
15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Walking Dead corset on: August 30, 2015 04:08:26 PM


I've recently (a year ago) started making corsets.
I got the course and patterns from this website.
http://www.corsettraining.net/
I love making them. Supplies are a bit of a pain. I always use steel boning. They are fairly easy to construct and adjust.
I have some with the traditional busks, but find a metal zipper with boning on each side looks nice too and is much easier to do up.
This my Walking Dead corset and another waist cincher corset I made.
But it's too small for me. I embroidered a design from Urban Threads on the front.
16  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Baby Toothless plushie on: August 30, 2015 03:52:55 PM

I made these adorable Baby Toothless plushies. The large one is 13.5" and the small 10". I made them from a pattern by TeaCupLion. They were a little difficult. I sewed them a little different then the pattern said. Also I stuffed the nose of the little one with felt, made it much easier to fill the head without it being droopy in the nose. I  am now going to try the pattern again with some modifications.
17  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Paper pulp mud on: January 16, 2015 10:12:27 AM
I was looking around at different polymer clays and came across this.

http://www.aliexpress.com/item/NEW-24colors-24pcs-Soft-Polymer-Modelling-Clay-set-box-with-tools-good-package-FIMO-Effect-Blocks/32223779906.html

In the description it says Light weight clay and goes on to call it water soluble paper pulp mud. There are some pictures of it stretching really far. Im curious has anyone seen this before or tried it?

Thanks
18  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Pikmin Trio on: March 04, 2014 05:43:45 PM
So I bought a pattern for these pikmin on Etsy and I love them. They are so cute and easy to make.
If you dont know what pikmin are, they are little creatures from a distant planet in the Nintendo video game pikmin.
Thanks for looking.
19  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sack Boy on: February 24, 2014 03:12:58 PM

Here's the sack boy I made. You may recognize him as the main character of Little Big Planet. He was fairly easy and quick to put together. I made him in a weekend, easily. I am not sure if I will bother with a mouth or not, he's already pretty cute. I finished him up at work, I am thinking the kids are gonna claim him pretty fast one I get home.
There is a free pattern on Ravelry if you want to make your own.
Thanks for looking.
20  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / How to fix a pair of pants on: January 21, 2014 03:26:25 PM
So I bought a pair of grey/Taupe cords, but they were tighter in the calves then I like. So I thought I'd do this to them.

Well in my wisdom, I cut the front of one leg up to the knee, and the back of the other leg.
So my question is now what? I'd like to keep them as pants
