41  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / More wee Teesha Moore style pouches. on: March 08, 2012 04:39:20 PM
I was only aiming to make ONE as a gift for a friend but once you get the squares ready to put together sometimes they don't fit or just don't match as well as you thought they would so you go through your stash of finished "poptarts" and you don't always find quite the right thing but you Do find a few squares that look really great together so you set them aside for other pouches but you've still got to make just one more patch and while you are friends and relatives see what you're doing and you can tell they really like it so you pick out fabric for pouches just for them and ... it's just endless, lol.

Anyhoo, here's what I've been up to all week.

This is my favourite square, I wanted to keep this one for myself...

42  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Tutorial for making felted booties, make both in a single step! on: March 04, 2012 09:57:34 AM
I didn't understand this at first but check out the second link for a step by step tutorial. Very clever, doing both booties at once. As the author says "Felting a boot without any sewn seams can be a long job. It often takes beginners several hours to get the job done and then they are too tired to make the second one. This is OK for those of you who are felting for people with only one foot..." LOL  Cheesy Cheesy

43  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / First completed Teesha Moore style patch bag, stolen immediately by my daughter. on: February 26, 2012 03:14:41 PM
I've been playing around with this technique for a while as well as swapping craft supplies etc for patches with people here AND I just finished a swap from which I received 9 lovely patches from my Craftster partners Smiley so I finally had enough of them to make a bag, yay!
My fingers are a little sore from all the stitching through many layers of fabric, ouchy. And of course my daughter has claimed the finished product for herself, she pretty much made it clear it was going to be hers when I first got started, lol. Each patch is a little treasure in itself with so much to look at, she loves those Eye Spy books and this is like a 3D version of that. She's filled it with things to take to school tomorrow for Show and Share, she's pretty excited to show it off.

All finished!

Hello moderators! Could a sticky post be made for this? It would be SO handy to have a ready list of where to buy eyes, fabric for skin, fun fur, limb joints etc. I'd love that so muchy  Grin Wink Kiss.
45  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Anybody know what this stitch that looks like a barnacle is called? on: February 19, 2012 08:35:15 AM

48  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / What to do with all this felted wool? Got any ideas? :D on: February 12, 2012 08:12:25 AM
I scored 3 mohair and wool blanket/rugs at the thrift store and thought I'd felt them in the washer but now I have no idea what to do with them. I was thinking a rain jacket from the pink ones for my daughter but there isn't enough of it. Maybe slippers? I don't need a bag. Art? I don't know...

Those are the golf balls I washed them with


Here they are felted up (I washed and dried them about 5 times but could do it again another 3 times at least, there are areas that are still a bit loose).


A close up for comparison.


49  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Recipe for non-greasy lotion (does this sound good?) on: February 06, 2012 06:43:37 PM
I have no idea, I thought I'd ask you experienced alchemists...

Thanks for taking a look!
50  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Teensy little Teesha Moore style pouches, pic hefty ;). on: January 03, 2012 08:21:43 AM
I love making those little squares but am not motivated enough to put them all together into a large purse or journal cover yet. So what to do? Whip 2 or 3 of them together into a tiny little pouch! They're great sizes for cell phones, credit cards, jewelry etc. I've given a few to little girls to store their special treasures in and the rest (there were many I didn't get pics of) were all snapped up at craft shows this December. Cute, fun, quick and endlessly creative, these are the best travel project ever!
