1  Whats a good housewife? (4 pics) in CHALLENGE 12 ENTRIES by Joler79 on: June 03, 2006 11:53:54 PM
With out a stunning centrepiece for her Table?
Esp in those extra special times of need when you cant afford real fruit, and after all whats fruit with out a bit of sparkle?




 
 
 items of choice - pasta, pom poms and pipe cleaners (sparkly ones!)
My basket -  made of woven macaroni with the half circles for decoration all spray painted gold. It has a cork bottom and the side supports - after much trial of different materials are skewers
Fruit - sequins pins Styrofoam shapes - with simple shaping (and a very sore thumb and numb bum) and pipe cleaners (apple orange and pear)
pom poms and pipecleaners and strawberry's with felt ( grapes, strawberry's, Cherry's)
and just pipe cleaners for the banana
 
easter grass (was to be original banana) was used to add some height to the fruit in the basket

3  showing off second bag and Critique needed please in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Joler79 on: February 08, 2006 04:49:36 AM
Ive made my second ever handbag for my neice who is fairy crazy! and while showing off a few people have mentioned wanting one.
Do you think these are A nice enough for a gift and B nice enough to sell. I m adding a little zip purse to go with them. i sort of winged my way through it based of what i had learnt about making a simple lined envelope. Im nervous as this will be my first handmade gift since a lil girl. Im also only fairly new to sewing.


The dots in the handles are glitter and they are attached by ribbons, they are only fabric lined with no stiffner.
