431  Fold-up Tote Bag (Tutorial on Page 2-image heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by craftADDchick on: February 29, 2008 04:27:14 PM
This is a tote bag that I made for the Reading Rainbow 4 Swap. It folds up and then unfolds to make a pretty good-sized tote. I modeled it after one that I had purchased at the grocery store, but I made the bottom wider.

This is what it looks like folded up:

And here it is in all of its unfolded glory Wink

I did take pictures as I was making it, so I could try to make a tutorial for it if anyone is interested!

432  Toiletry Bag w/ Fused Plastic Lining (2 pics) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by craftADDchick on: February 28, 2008 03:11:05 PM
I made this toiletry bag for a swap, and I was so darn proud of it, I just had to show it off. It is far from perfect, but I didn't use a pattern- I modeled it off of one that I own. I used fused plastic bags for the lining to make it water resistant. It wasn't very hard to make, but I put the zipper in waaaay too soon, and made it much harder on myself. The next time I make one, I'll know better...I hope Wink

433  Re: ****NOW WITH TUTORIAL**** red eyed tree frog in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by craftADDchick on: February 28, 2008 03:03:54 PM
I finally had a chance to make one of these. The pattern was very easy to follow! In fact, I have to make another one this weekend!

Here he is on the closest thing to a tree he could find while indoors in the middle of February...

Thanks, wibit, for sharing such a great little frog pattern!

My partner, mom2blu, can't find her camera cord, so to take some of the pressure off of the search, I thought I'd post a pic of what I sent.

I sent her two fabric books for her son, Shoot the Moon by Billie Letts, and The Universe Below by William Broad (an excellent book about the history and science of deep ocean research, which sounds like an odd choice, but she said she liked to research things). I also sent the tote bag and one bookmark, which has a quote by Thomas Jefferson-"I cannot live without books."

And, as I posted earlier (but I'm going back to delete that post), the bag unfolds into a good-sized tote bag. My mom helped me do the monogram on her embroidery machine.

Ameythystlily, those frog rocks...rock!! And, that box is so adorable, as is the fire belly toad (and to echo bronzfrog, I'd also like to know how chilledsoup made it Wink ).

And, MissDisney, no swap anxiety needed! I received today and it's great! And as proof...

The whole shebang: A little blanket with terry cloth on one side and and an adorable snorkling frog print on the other, plus the leftover fabric, little frog soaps (or chocolates? I didn't want to taste them if they were soap, or wash with them if they were chocolates Wink ), and a fantastic frog bracelet with some very cute polymer clay frogs and a whole bunch of very cool beads!

And a close-up of the bracelet so you can ooh and aah over the beads!

Thanks so much MissDisney!

celestialxxdreams, you got an excellent package from Tsuki_Tsubasa!  Fantastic books! Ive only read Wicked (about 6 years ago), but it was great, so Im guessing that these will be too. The bookmarks are adorable, and the fabrics on the bag are neat! Lucky you!

xxb_umblebee_xx, what a gorgeous bag you got! I love the fabric combinations (on the bookmarks, too!). Great books, too! Great job Audrey!

And, since I just mailed off my package, Ill show off the one thing I didnt sendsince my partner hates pink and purple, I yanked this bookmark out of the package and kept it for myself Wink

I got my package from mom2blu today and I couldn't be happier!

First up, the awesome bag. I wanted something that would fit a book (or two) but still have room for a small project (like a crochet amigurumi project). This bag is the prefect size for a decent hardcover, and because it is long, I can tuck a small project in the top. Plus, it has a magnetic snap closure so I don't dump my stuff everywhere, and the handle is the perfect length for shoulder slinging or hand carrying! And, the fabric is wonderful, too!!

Then, the goodies inside the bag- mom2blu really spoiled me! She gave me a copy of The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe, which is great, since I brought my copy into school and it disappeared. Also, the book Murder in the Place of Anubis, by Lynda S. Robinson. I know what I'll be reading over vacation! She also made me 2 fabric book covers (that nicely match the bag Wink ) and 2 bookmarks of the same fabric (which I didn't photograph...oops!). And, she also tucked in some materials for a crochet project: a booklet of crochet patterns and a ball of Sugar N' Cream yarn!

Thanks so much, mom2blu! You are an awesome swap partner!

439  Snail...Male... in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by craftADDchick on: February 14, 2008 04:59:32 PM
Here's a cute little snail I crocheted (pattern from: http://www.pepika.com/ ). He's a cute little guy who loves all things 70s, hence his penchant for the color orange. Wink

I finished! Well, I just need to weave in the ends, but I'll do that tomorrow. It's Simply Soft Victorian Rose and Off White. And, putting the chains in (I tried it one more time with the hook) after it was all crocheted seemed to work better- it stayed flatter while I was putting the chains on.

Now, to go and work on my March '07 square Wink
