I made my hubby & I some stockings several years ago & kept meaning to make some for my kids, but kept putting it off. Well, now that son is 19 & out on his own & my daughter is almost 18, but I made them this morning, finally:
I just got a new Fuji Finepix, and while I own a camera case & its fine for everyday use, I want to take my camera with me to the Renne Faire & it just won't do. So, I made myself a cute little one out of two layers of felt.
I did this one from an illustration from "Angels & Demons" by Dan Brown. It reads exactly the same upside down as it does right side up. I used acrylics & textile medium, and it took about 5 or 6 layers of each color.

This is my first post in here (not my first shirt - I'm just lousy at remembering to get pics). I made this shirt for my geek daughter, for school this year. Today was her first day & she wore it, so I remembered:
Just done with freezer paper, acrylic & textile medium.
I entered this in the bag challenge, but thought I'd post it here, too.
This is my own pattern, because I couldn't understand any of the hobo tutorials in here enough to feel confidant making one. It seems like I'm always searching for the perfect sized bag, either they're too big & I lose everything inside them, or they're too small & I can't fit what I need into them, or they're perfect, but the strap is too long or too short.. so I came up with what I hope will be perfect for me:
The outside, which I beaded & added beaded fringe too, because I'm a freak for anything that has a gypsy flair to it.
The inside with all of my junk in there. I hope to make some matching stuff for it soon.
Action shot.. my hubby's computer hutch loooooves purses!
I've been busily sewing purses for my booth at our upcoming Renaissance Faire. These are all a modified Jordy bag, where I add a few seems to make them boxier, don't use interfacing & add a flap. They're all fairly small, but I'll make a few larger ones before July. No idea on pricing on these yet.
Here's the first one, I embroidered around the suns & accent pieces & the lining:
The second, I think this is my favoite one, I like the embroidered heart & the softness of the colors & the lining:
The third, I added the little sun, because I felt the flap needed a bit of something & its lining:
And the last one. This one gave me a lot of problems, the button loop is crooked, as is the inner pocket.
This is my first actual project post here, so be gentle *L*
This first soap is the last cold process I made, it's pumpkin pie, colored with cinnamon.
The next is when I went back to Hot Process Oven Method & is a soap scented with a fragrance called "Sensual" that I'm calling "Black Magic." It smells like sandalwood, vanilla, musk & a little orange & cinnamon. Its my new favorite.
This is also HPOM, scented too lightly (I had two batches of CP fail before using the last of the fragrance on this one) with Apple Jack. I also cut the bars too thin.
The last one is Pumpkin Oatmeal, with added oatmeal & colored with cinnamon (I added the oatmeal & cinnamon at trace), before I put it in the oven. It's also HPOM.
