1  Sock blanket/quilty/rug thing in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by the.fee.fairy on: September 22, 2012 06:24:26 AM
A few years ago the lovely MrsFlibble made a sock blanket for her daughter. I've been wanting to do something similar for quite a while.
I went through my sock drawer and any that had holes in or had been previously repaired got sent to the blanket fund.

I cut the tops with the pictures into 2, one for each side. I used the elastic tops as hair bands, and the foot also got cut into 2.

Then, i patchworked them together really simply in squares. I had 51 pieces (some of the bottoms had really gone too far to use). So i made a 10x5 thing. It's too small to be a blanket, and too small for a rug. I plan to add to it whenever I do a sock drawer clearout.



The whole thing



Some detail



More detail.


I hope eventually to make it big enough to back with rug backing for the floor. I think it'll make an interesting rug.

2  Matching Bedding - Lucky dog! in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by the.fee.fairy on: September 22, 2012 06:15:59 AM
My dog had a beloved blankie, but it was starting to look a bit worn and dirty (despite repeated washings!!).

So I went to the pound shop and got her a new blankie. The problem was that she just didn't love it as much as the old one.

So...A bit of cutting, sacrificing a pair of PJ bottoms and some patchwork later, she had a new quiltish blankie:


The blankie (with dog) from the top


And with the bottom flipped to show the old blankie.

The new blankie (the brighter pinky one) that I bought was a long rectangle shape, and I can't bear waste, so I made her a pillow cover using the other half and some more sacrificed PJ bottoms.

I'll get a pic when she gets off of it!!

Nucky is a rescued Chihuahua cross. She's now really happy with her new quilty blankie!

5  First Soaps in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by the.fee.fairy on: August 19, 2007 09:04:04 AM
It looks a bit rogh and ready, but i left it too long at trace.
I give you:



Coconut-Ice-Cherry Soap. The bottom(white) is coconut, and the top (pink) is cherry. Both layers are fragranced with a hint of Bakewell to bring the scents together. It is a very sweet smell, but i think it goes well with the coconut ice confectionery look.

And


Orange and Lemongrass Egg Shampoo Bars
They smell nice, and look quite neat too. I'm pleased with them.

Sorry about the lighting - it was late last night when i took the pics.
