11  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Does this thing really work? Whooooopie! on: November 01, 2006 08:19:25 AM
Whoopie Cushion

Made from 3 yards of 72" felt and a sharpie. Smiley



So, I saw this in a Budget Living magazine years ago and thought it was such a clever costume. I didn't realize that you could buy them in a costume shop until after I searched the entire town over for 3 consecutive yards of bright pink felt.

It was still a hit at the party... however, I did get tired of getting squeezes from random people saying, "Does this thing work?" in Rodney Dangerfield-esque voices. Oh brother.
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / I'm not paying $68 for that!! Cherella Knockoff Bag on: September 07, 2006 08:49:16 AM
While at the children's museum last weekend, I noticed a stylish mother across the room carrying the most AMAZING bag. I had to have it.

This is the Cherella Boho bag that stylish mommy was carrying:


So, using the supplies I had on hand, I came up with my own version using the Amy Butler (i'm such a fan of her easy-peasy patterns) Swing Bag pattern.



Detail:


I'm pleased! I'm excited to make more that look more like the original.

Thanks for looking!
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Amy Butler Nappy Sack on: August 23, 2006 07:21:40 AM
So, I've been carrying around my Amy Butler Nappy Sack as a diaper bag for a few months. I always get comments on it. The fabric is a super deal I found on the Wal-Mart $1 table and I bought the entire bolt. (10 YARDS!)

My MIL is a teacher's aid and she is convinced this would be the ultimate bag for her. She asked me if she could borrow my pattern for the bag so she'd have a new bag for school on Thursday. I told her I'd send it with my husband when he drops off my son (she was our babysitter this summer). As a "thank you for tending my kid for free" gift, I just made her the bag last night. Won't she be surprised when Mike shows up with a completed bag rather than the pattern.

My dingy old bag:

My son is a rockin' model:


I just hope she likes the fabric and hope it isn't too juvenile. I love this pattern. I have a feeling of accomplishment every time I do it because it is so easy. It always takes less than 2 hours and I feel like I am so advanced. haha! The simple pleasures in life!
