241  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Zip-top pouches on: March 05, 2009 07:37:39 PM
I haven't posted here in...oh...forever Smiley  But now I'm going to post some finished things!  These are two zip-top pouches I made, one for me and one for my sister for her birthday.  I started using a fleece-like batting in my bags which has made them look SO much more professional.  What do you think?

For my sister, who likes classy as opposed to more cutesy stuff.  The exterior is a stretch twill (I think) that I had leftover from cutting out a sundress - I haven't sewn the sundress together yet because, well, it's still snowing here and was -30C a few days ago.  It's just too depressing to make something I won't be able to wear for, oh, 2 months at least.  The interior is a cute black dotted white dress fabric, likely polyester, that I thrifted at Value Village.

For me.  I found this awesome fabric as a fat quarter on a trip to the States, and my future MIL bought it for me.  I also used it to make a purse (which is a separate post).  I'm not sure if I'll use it with the purse or separately as a cosmetic bag, but overall I'm thrilled!  The interior is just a plain pink broadcloth.

Creme brulee!  It's so easy to make (really!) and very delicious.  And it only uses egg yolks, no whites!

Oh, and they look delicious Cheesy

If you don't mind the smell of coffee, it will actually work faster than baking soda.  Put in some unground beans in an open container with the yarn, and in a few days it should be completely smoke free (albeit very coffee-like!).  It also won't make a mess if the beans get mixed in, as long as you only put whole beans in with no loose dust.

AUGH!  Army worm (aka Forest Tent Caterpillar)!!!!

Fantastic picture though, forgive my visceral reaction Smiley  It's just that up here every few years they strip the leaves off every birch and aspen leaf for hundreds of square kilometres.

But your picture is wonderful! Smiley

247  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: fondant sculpting question ? on: April 06, 2008 10:58:32 AM
I can't help with the fondant/sculpting problem, but if you end up going with Minnie Mouse one of the best ways to infill is to use buttercream icing in a piping bag, and fill in a colouring book outline by piping small stars.

Check out the Wilton cake decorating site: http://www.wilton.com/decorating/noveltyshape.cfm.  Of course you don't need to use a shaped cake, you can just trace out a shape you like on a sheet cake.  You might be able to rent a shaped cake tin from a store as well.  Here almost all bulk-food type stores carry Wilton cake decorating supplies, and you can rent the shaped tins from them, as well as buy the icing colours (for this kind of decorating you will need the paste food colours to get the right tint without watering your icing down, or it won't pipe correctly).

 Shocked *eyes bulge* Shocked

OH MY GOD.  These look like the type of gingerbread cookies I've been trying to replicate for 10 years - I kid you not!  Tell me, do they have the following qualities?

1) Chewy, almost cakey, not crisp
2) Lighter colour
3) Sweet, light flavour while still tasting gingery but NOT molasses-y

PLEASE PLEASE could we have the recipe? Kiss Grin  They look fantastic!

Oh and I like the button ones best Smiley
