White is so cute Smiley I like how you did the nose - I thought of it, too (he has to breath fire somehow, doesn't he?) but was too lazy Smiley

Here's a paper lantern I made from a gift box, some organza scraps and lace. It's not very safe but if you are careful and do not turn it over, it's ok Smiley

13  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / One little dragon with brown eyes, taking his first steps out of the lair on: July 16, 2006 05:03:01 PM
This is my first toy, a dragon I made for my boyfriend. Have to wait a while untill we meet and I can give him the gift, but I just have to show it to somebody Smiley
He sits on my shoulder when I'm reading and likes to hide under my t-shirt so that only his tail is sticking out, and at nights he sleeps in my underwear drawer...I feel that it will be really hard for me to finally part with him Smiley
Sorry, the pictures were taken with my phone camera which sucks, but I couldn't wait till my Mom gets back from a vacation with a normal camera Smiley He's made from grey velvet. The wings are attached a but assymetrical as can be seen on the third picture, but I guess I'll live with it Smiley
Here's where I took the pattern from: http://www.wyrm.org.uk/cuddly/beanbag.html - the sewing inctructions there are really good.





14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / just another ruffle skirt from old jeans on: April 18, 2006 04:39:46 PM
This is nothing special, but it was my first attempt at reconstructing Smiley Old jeans -> new skirt.
(I used to think that finding a pair of useless jeans was easier! Every pair I took made me think "oh no, it would be a pity to destroy them, I'd certainly wear them again" I guess it's just me Smiley

15  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / A bag to carry my whistle with me..and other stuff on: April 18, 2006 04:32:03 PM
Made this bag because I started to learn to play whistle and didn't have any bag quite wide enough to carry it along with me Smiley I still would like to decorate it somehow but I'm using it already while I'm still thinking on it..

Here's the bag:

And the pocket for my treasured whistles (too bad I didn't know I'd have two of them when I was making the bag, or I'd make two pockets Smiley )

http://www.craftster.org/pictures/uploads/43281/13.jpg

And some more pockets on the other side (there's a zipped one, too)

So I needed just a bag for the whistle and then I ended up with one that fits tons of useful stuff.

Thank you, thank you! Smiley I can't wait to give the bag to my friend Smiley Smiley

Mela, I don't even remember what was the outer fabric called in the store...it is not as sturdy as denim but alike.

I made a new year present for my best friend and I can't help showing it to somebody since I can't show it to her before new year Smiley
I fell in love with the lining fabric! If I didn't love my friend more than everybody in this world, I would be so sad to part with it  Grin Grin I like that the flowers kind of don't look too girly if you know what I mean.
She loves horseback riding so I thought I'd decorate the bag with this leather horse applique. Can you believe I hand stiched it all the way round, and it took me like an hour, and then I was ironing it and accidentally burned the horse's tail with my iron! I was so mad. I'm proud I had the patience to cut out a new horse and start it all over again! Smiley

Here's the front:



with the flap opened:



and inside: it has a zippered pocket and a cell phone pocket (it can be seen on the left with a phone sticking out)

ktgotskills,

I used this tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=49235.0, but it has sides and bottom all one piece (called 'edging' there) and I had them separate: bottom and two sides.

Here is how the outer part was assembled together:



First I made front and back: 3 rows of 3 squares then stiched together row by row. Then I made sides and bottom (rows of 3 squares again). Then I stiched front and back to the bottom, and the sides after that. The lining was assembled the same way just it didn't consist of squares thanks God Smiley Smiley
And after that I followed the tutorial I gave the link to for the top part with the zipper. (Ah, and that bag has different straps - mine were sewn between the layers before I turned the thing inside out.)

If that doesn't make much sense or you have more questions, just ask! Smiley
