I received some roving from Gale's Art. You can find her over here...http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5353128

and spun it into this

I love the colors.  It's called "Crayon Box"

Everyone has spun such lovely yarn.  This thread is such an inspiration!

2  As If I Need Another Bag.... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by RubyPurl on: July 03, 2009 11:08:19 AM
...but I had some great Robert Kaufman fabric laying around.  I had to put it to good use right?  I also had great tortoise shell handles and vintage buttons. So, this is what I came up with. 

I am pretty happy with the end result.  Grin

3  Who's Got An Ashford?? in Spinning: Completed Projects by RubyPurl on: January 11, 2009 04:57:20 PM

I purchased a "Kiwi" Ashford spinning wheel when I was on vacation in Santa Fe this past June.  I love it!

Here is a bit of what I have been working on. Most some is Corridale and some is Merino.

Spinning is so much fun!

4  Happy Birthday Violet in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by RubyPurl on: February 24, 2008 03:35:48 PM
For my niece's 4th birthday, I made her some felt food. 

Yummy cookies, almost good enough to eat!:

This pattern I made myself...pretty easy...not really brain science, ha!  Grin

And the ultimate pizza!:

I used a pattern that I purchased from http://www.feltcuisine.com/. It really helped me to understand the process of making felt food.  Now I think I will be able to come up with my own patterns.  Felt food is just so fun to make and addictive!

5  Guest Bedroom Makeover...long over due! in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by RubyPurl on: February 24, 2008 03:26:26 PM
Well, after 3 years of living in my house, I finally got around to making over my guest room.  I have to say it turned out just how I wanted it to.  It is a bit shabby and a bit chic. 


If you wanna play a little game, you can play "where's the kitty?"

Pardon the mess. I let the room "go" about a week before the makeover.

ahem...pardon the rum and coke too.  Wink


It is amazing what a few coats of paint can do along with some new mini blinds!  I think I am going to re-do my craft room next!

6  Sally Costume for Halloween in Halloween Costumes by RubyPurl on: November 06, 2007 05:46:30 PM
For Halloween I my boyfriend thought of the idea for us to be Sally and Jack from the Nightmare Before Christmas.  I searched for Sally dresses and could not find one I liked. So, I decided I would make my costume.  I think it turned out really well for my first time ever making a dress, or a costume at that!

Needless to say, it was a fun Halloween!

8  The Amy's in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by RubyPurl on: September 06, 2007 05:45:27 PM
This is a little bag I made a few weeks ago.  I love the way it turned out.  It was my first experience using Amy Butler fabric, which is probably why I love it so much.  I also used an Amy Karol pattern from her fantastic book, Bend the Rules Sewing. Here is the finished product.

The inside

I received today! Oh my goodness, my swap partner is fantastic!  She even included a little something extra for my doggies  Grin.  The bag is absolutely beautiful, thank you malgudi, you are very talented.  Here are the pictures (beware there are a bunch!):

Package before I unwrapped it.  It was tied up with a cute little strawberry button!

A cute little handmade card:

The little goodies for my doggies:

The FABULOUS bag my partner made me!!!!!!!

Close up of the beautiful fabric she used and the bead work on the fabric.  I really love all the colors.  Has such a sweet vintage look to it.

I love this, she added little heart beads on the sides, sooo cute!

This is a picture of the inside of the bag.  It is so roomy, I can put all kinds of things in it.  There is also a great pocket on the inside.

Here is a picture of the handles.  She really made me a fantastic bag. Great partner!!!

This was so much fun and made my day!

10  Weekend Market Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by RubyPurl on: August 02, 2007 01:12:10 PM
I have been wanting to make a market bag for some time now.  I finally got around to it the other night.  This is my first attempt.  I think it turned out pretty well.  There are some things I want to do to fine tune the next one to make it even better but I thought I would post the pictures of this one.

It is made out of a thick muslin cloth.  The interior fabric is cute print of various peppers.  I included a big pocket on the inside for holding bottles and such.  There is a pocket on the outside for a wallet or zipper pouch.

I think I am going to make a matching zipper pouch to go with it.

Now, I just need to go to the market!  Thanks for looking.
