1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: wire hangers?OH Noooooooo on: April 28, 2010 02:10:16 PM
i have some very fancy fairy ornaments that hang from heavy duty hooks that stick into the bases of plants.  when one of them broke, i used a hanger to remake it.  basically, it is just a swirl to hold the ornament and a straight end to go into the dirt.  works really well.

awesome job!  those are really cute, and somehow "old-fashioned" at the same time as being "futuristic."  cool.

6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Re: hooded towel (as a baby gift, not for a dog as shown) on: April 15, 2010 10:02:32 AM
thanks for the comments! weirdly enough, because of the shape of the hood (which is basically a rectangle with a seam up the back, it didn't fit on my dog at all- it kept falling off of him.  so i think if you were going to make one for a dog, it would need to be more sloping than how i made it so it would stay on the dog's head.  good luck!

8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / hooded towel (as a baby gift, not for a dog as shown) on: April 14, 2010 07:58:25 PM

So I didn't use a pattern or anything for this, because after looking at some of the others on here I was too daunted to try any of the patterns...  So I whipped it up from a hand towel and a regular towel.  It's probably too big for a baby, but I thought it would be good for a toddler.  (Though modeled by my dog, it is not actually for him.)

Towels shed A LOT.  So there are a lot of rolled seams on this bad boy.  All in all, I'm pretty happy with it.

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bag from Circle Skirt (Mother's Day Gift) on: April 13, 2010 09:39:59 PM


Not having a job or money at the moment, I needed to make something for my mother for mother's day from things I already had.  I have had this skirt for six years and I only wore it once! But I loved the fabric, which was why I couldn't get rid of it.

It was heavily pleated so I cut off the top band to make a long rectangle of fabric and used some old curtain fabric that a friend had given me as a lining- a lime green canvas-like material.  This gave the bag a great structure.  I took apart the top band to get rid of the bottom part of the skirt and hand-sewed it back together to make the "latch" and the strap.

The bag is 13" tall, 12" wide and 3" deep.  Great size for magazines, which my mom loves!


(this pic is a little weird because I had already cut off the top band before taking the picture, but you get the idea)
