1  Baby Shoes with Sharks and Buttons in Shoes: Completed Projects by Sewer Rat on: December 23, 2011 05:06:29 PM

Wool felt baby shoes with embroidered sharks, 'cause Mom likes the S.J. Sharks and mother of pearl buttons, 'cause Dad loves to dive for abalone.  Love the Purl Bee's baby shoe pattern!

3  Twin Lens Reflex Camera Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Sewer Rat on: April 08, 2011 07:51:58 PM
    
     I sewed two wool felt bags that are supposed to look like those old Brownie box cameras.  The smaller bag is for my cell phone and keys.  The larger bag can hold a water bottle.  The silver areas are either felt or ironing board cover fabric.  A Japanese company called Motif makes these.  They're much cuter than mine.  (Yes, my embroidery skills are crap.)  I just can't afford one right now.  My son thinks I should add more buttons and a hand crank on the side.

5  Leafy Lace Edging Scarf (x2) in Knitting: Completed Projects by Sewer Rat on: January 06, 2010 07:43:27 PM
This pattern was published by the Nonotuck Silk Company in 1886 and was intended to be knit out of silk thread.  I used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Dk.
I found the pattern on the Vintageknits website.  This is very simple lace pattern suitable for a first-time lace knitter.

6  T-day Napkins (Nothing Special, Just Pretty Fabric) in Thanksgiving by Sewer Rat on: November 26, 2009 11:28:28 AM
Woke up this morning obsessed with sewing Thanksgiving napkins.  I used fabrics that are reproductions of textiles popular in the southern U.S. at about the time of the Civil War.  They're super easy to make-- just a hemmed 22" square with mitred corners.  Happy T-day!

Here's my second necklace.  It's made of freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals, Czech glass, quartz, enameled beads, silver frame and a photo.
I don't know about your neck of the woods, but it feels like New Year's Eve here in Berkeley, California!  Woo hoo!

8  Inauguration Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Sewer Rat on: January 18, 2009 10:42:58 AM
Here's a necklace I made for the inauguration.  (It's my first necklace.)  Whoa, it's super dangerous to venture into a bead store.
I looked everywhere for a tiny pic of Obama.  Finally found one in Black Hair magazine.  Attached it to the frame with Diamond Glaze.

9  Re: Fabric Beach Balls in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Sewer Rat on: January 02, 2009 08:46:28 AM
I've sewn 24 balls so far.  I'm tempted to make a class set for tossing around on rainy days when we can't go out for recess.
It takes me about 20 minutes to make one ball, because I reinforce all the seams.  Sometimes it comes in handy to be obsessive!

10  Fabric Beach Balls in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Sewer Rat on: December 28, 2008 07:27:20 PM
     These are fabric beach balls I made using a tutorial from The Purl Bee, a fabbo website. 
I haven't decided whether I'll add the little circles at the poles.  I'm going to make one for
each of my twenty first grade students, to take the sting out of coming back to school after
two weeks of glorious vacation.  The beach balls will be on their desks when they enter the
classroom.
