1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Brainstorming with bleach! on: June 14, 2012 04:21:42 PM
Howdy, all you crafty folks!

I'm making a purse out of denim, and I'm planning on decorating it using bleach. Right now, I'm considering either doing some space print type thing, or doing what someone else did here on Craftster with jellyfish, or something simliar.
I'm still not 100% sold on either idea(or combination thereof), so I thought I'd drop by and trawl for ideas! Any fun designs or ideas, just throw them out there!
It's a very simple purse, similar to a messenger bag, so there will be a nice flat surface, plenty of room to go crazy on. And the denim is quite dark, so there will be a great range of how things could stand out.

There are TONS of tutorials out there for fabric flowers that you could make out of some bright and cheery fabric, and then sew on. I think they'd look great clustered around one corner. Just make sure you've got a good heavy duty needle!

Oh, this is excellent! I love the idea of the combable fur for different expressions, and the teeth are just adorable. Reminds me of those wonderful floppy puppets on childrens' shows.

Try looking at some of these tutorials: http://babylondonstar.deviantart.com/gallery/5061515
Although you won't find exactly what you're looking for, these tutorials are a really good starting point to make something close to what you want.

Here's the only kangaroo pattern I've found in my hunts: http://www.sewingpatterns.org.uk/kangaroo-sewing-pattern.htm

I also think that with a bit of editing, this dog could make for a cute stylized kangaroo: http://www.womansday.com/home/craft-ideas/craft-project-little-pup-103939

Good luck!

These look wonderful! I love the idea of using one of these as a mini-purse!
And it sounds like a great idea to use nail polish for painting the eyes, they look great!

9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Weighting plushes? on: January 30, 2012 07:44:15 AM
I want to experiment with adding beans or pellets or something to the bottom of my plushes to give them some good heft, and so they'll sit on their own, but I'm not sure how to go about it.
Do I put them in their own little pouch at the bottom so that it doesn't mix with the rest of the stuffing, or does that matter?

Thanks in advance!
