2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Amy Butler blossoms bag on: December 21, 2011 06:01:29 AM
I just finished one of these bags yesterday, unfortunately I mailed it before I remembered to take pics. I thought the finished bag was nice looking, but I found it unrulely to construct because of the thickness. The peltex #70 was just too heavy in my opinion and if I were to make this bag again I would use something lighter. I made the shorter handles, but because of the bulkiness, the bag felt awkward under my arm..I dunno, not what I'm use to I guess. I also didnt care too much for the instructions for adding the zipper or attaching the dividers, they were terribly confusing for anyone not familar with what they were doing, luckly I have made a few zippered pouches before. In the end, I think this is the last Amy Butler patterns I'll use. I've made the sling bag as well and the materials lists for both were lengthly and ask for WAY too much fabric and the end results from both the bags werent practical in size or fit for me.

This is an awesome idea, I am surprised I have never seen this anywhere. I do love tofu scrambles, but this seems to be even less expensive and just as protein packed. I haven't ever used garbanzo bean flour before, im guessing it is not as gluey as wheat flour when mixed with liquid. Can't wait to try!

Okay these Creatology kits are a pain! I'm working on putting together the dollhouse one and it is so frustrating! I'm wishing now I had gone with the Greenleaf kit I had planned. Undecided

I love this kind of corset/t-shirt! Know of any tutorials that show how to make them?

 I made this without a pattern using only the sewing bust as my guide, but here's an awesome gal who offers a tutorial similar though. http://www.etsy.com/shop/patriciavalery?section_id=7402314
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Popeye Corset -Handpainted Spinach Can on: September 06, 2011 09:22:56 AM
I forgot about this top I made as it was quite some time ago, but I was going through some photos and laughed when I found these.



I handpainted the graphic on using fabric paint on jersey material which I misted with glitter. On the spinach I used fabric paint that puffs up when you iron it to give it a 3D effect, but you can't tell well in the photo. I found this popeye fabric at a goodwill and LOTS of it, I believe I have at least a couple yards stashed away and have no clue what to do with it now. I wish I hadnt taken a photo with the waist at the smallest measure because it overlaped, but the size was kind of a one size fits most.

This is so exciting! I found a house making kit at Goodwill for $5! The crazy thing is that the kit is from a store a couple of blocks from my house (The little doll company in Toronto, if anyone knows about it) and it retails for $60! What a find! As soon as I saw the kit I thought of the houses you made Knickertwist. I'm so joining this craft a long!

What type of paint do you use and do you prim the wood before painting?

The kit I bought was missing the instructions, so I went on the manufactures website where I was able to download them. The house I have is called buttercup doll house.

That is so awesome you found it for $5.00! I'm using the Greenleaf buttercup kit as well, I found it on amazon for $27 that includes shipping.

A box or package of pasta is usually about 1 lb. but 1 cup of olive oil to only 1 lb. pasta?! Wow! Smaller portions I suppose!  Wink
