I saw this before Christmas but didn't have time to try it. But, now that my big Christmas push is done, I'll have lots more time to try this.

Thanks for sharing the idea and the tute!

That looks great! Cute fabric Smiley
Thanks, my SIL is a musician as well as a knitter Smiley

It's lovely. Especially the ribbons. Well done! Smiley

Thanks! I love how the ribbons turned out, too! And, I hate sewing on snaps Wink

Irasema, she is so cute!!  I like the dress...I discovered yesterday that the clothes are tough for me!

I'm dreading the clothes, too...My first attempt at making clothes for something did not make me happy! Which reminds me that I should finish them up...and then it is Poppet time! So, I should get my butt in gear and get to it!

Well, it was down to the wire on this one! I finished it up, wrapped it and headed out for Christmas Eve. My SIL brought her knitting and an extra set of circular needles, so she was able to see how it worked right away. The needles in the packages fit in the lower set of pockets, but for the higher ones, they'll need to be taken out of the packages...

I used this tutorial listed in the first post: http://www.jenminnis.com/artblog/?p=152

I modified it a bit because I didn't want to quilt it or put on a bias binding. I also stitched everything to the inner panel first because I didn't want the stitch lines to show on the outside. And, instead of snaps, I used ribbon ties.

And, if you think the black fabric looks wonky, that's because it is! My machine decided it hated that fabric and would not stitch well on it at all. I had to use it, however, because I ran out of the music notes fabric (I only had a fat quarter) and finally used up the last big pieces of the red fabric. Of course, I used up the red fabric at an inopportune moment and had to use the hated black fabric to make up the last two pocket rows...

But, the rest of it came out great, I think! But, I'll let you decide... Wink

And now, I think I need to make a crochet hook roll for myself!

What a neat idea! The textbook graphics look awesome! And, thanks for sharing how you made the glue...much cheaper than buying a bottle of envelope glue!

I have some old textbooks lying around that would be excellent candidates for sacrifice! Hmmmm...now I'll have to do some digging.

Opened it up made a remark on how it was a good idea and can't wait to pass it around      (which I think means regift it) 

This is a good thing Wink This means that your cute little elephant will make an appearance at next year's swap...and the year after that! Maybe it will even become the running symbol of the swap. Of course, eventually someone may want to keep it Wink

7338  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: Ribbon Votive Holders on: December 26, 2007 09:13:11 AM
Very simple! I took about a yard (use more if you want more than 3 votives) of 1.5" wide ribbon, and folded it in half. Then, starting at the folded end, I measured about 3 3/8" and pinned to mark the spot. I measured at 3 3/8" intervals down to the cut end of the ribbon. Then, I stitched lines at the pins, trimmed the ribbon ends, added fray check and the votive holders and I was finished! The votive holders I used were from Pier 1, because they were fairly straight. I'll be keeping my eyes peeled this year for other ones that might go on sale so I can make it for even less $$.

Hmmmm...I might have to give these a try. The technique looks similar to the straw shrimp that I've seen somewhere around here. I've managed to make a couple of decent shrimp, so I might be able to handle a grasshopper! Wink

Thanks for sharing such a neat little project!

I am in love with Bob! He is such a cutie! I love his short hair! I wish I could paint eyes like that...

I love how, in the first picture, he looks like he has little "love handles!"
