Adorable!  I would also like to know where you got that trim.  It's awesome.

Love your bag, sewingdiva!  The fabric is amazing! 

I'm planning on working on my bag o' the month this Sunday.

What did you do to get the "soap bubbles" in the 2nd and 3rd pictures?  I really enjoy that effect.

thanks for the question.  I just used those iridescent type fake pearls, the ones that come in bags from a craft store.  Know what I'm talking about?

I do know what you're talking about.  I can see it now that you tell me what they are, but before I was really stumped.  Again, great job!

I just saw this thread today.  Is it too late to join the fun?

I just received a whole lot of old clothes from my roommate that I'd love to reconstruct into bags.  Plus, I've got this cool yarn that I've been wanting to knit up into a bag.  Yay, craftiness!

GirlyGirlBags:  Great job with the bag.  I love bamboo handles!

When I saw the test garment you did earlier, I knew this skirt would be awesome.  But you completely exceeded my expectations!  Awesome job!  I love the green and white!

This might be a little too simple and it may sound stupid, but you could simply cut out little rectangles and have them make their own rectangle monsters.  Have them sew the rectangles together, then turn it inside out.  Stuff with stuffing and sew up the turning hole. 

Then they could use smaller bits of fabric for the face, or simply use permanent markers.  You could also glue the fabric pieces on if you don't think they're up to applique yet.

I'm kind of assuming your cousins are girls for this next suggestion, but if they  have dolls they like to play with, you could make little skirts for the dolls.  This would be really easy, and they are so many ways to mix it up! 

I hope some of this helps.  Have fun with your cousins!

Wow!!  Those are beyond awesome.  Can't wait for the tute!

I get free magazines from my work, and would love to make cool stuff out of them instead of just throwing them away.

WOW!!!  Those look amazing!  I especially love the swirly ones in the second to last pic.  Great job!
20  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Knitting without yarn? on: December 29, 2005 09:38:03 AM
licorice whips
fine chain.

I really like these suggestions.

Knitting with licorice whips sounds really fun (although a bit sticky).  You could totally make little candy scarfs or something.  Adorable!  (Just make sure you wash your hands before knitting.)

I'm very curious as to how knitting with chain would look.  In my head, a chain I-cord would look brilliant as a necklace or bracelet.  The more I think about it, the more I want to try it. 

Sorry that I don't have any suggestions of my own.  Everyone else's suggestions are just too awesome!
