That is just so freaking awesome that I had to comment. I want one... Wow, now all I need is a scooter, pleather, some paper mache, and yacht paint! Seriously, wow. Excellent craftsmanship (Holy crap, those wings!). Man, I'm showing this to the art ed faculty at my university... totally. freakin. cool.
This is an incredible bag! I love the colors/combo... And it looks so functional! I know this is an older post, but rebekah_lynn6, if you get a chance, I'd love to have some measurements, lol. I'm also really confused about some of the construction I plan on making a new diaper bag for me this week (old one is hanging on by a thread, literally), and I would love to try something like this.
Did I mention, the pockets look absolutely perfect!
So, I'm moving to Louisville in a few weeks and have no real knowledge of the neighborhoods, schools, guilds, well anything, etc. I am 26, have a two year old girl and a hubby. I graduated college recently with a Studio Art degree, emphasis Fibers. And I'm a craftster. What can you tell me about the areas in and around Louisville (more so city proper and all the districts)? I live in Murray, KY right now, but have only been to Louisville as a kid. Honestly, I need all the help I can get.
My first post in a LONG time! Just wanted to let you guys know that I'm right there with you. I've finished a crochet bag from ... ahem... "vintage, recycled" yarn. It's HUGE, more of a beach bag, but perfect for this summer. Also cutting strips for a recycled bag tote bag. I'll post pics soon!
Do you use any thing on the bottoms of the booties to make them non-skid? Would it be wrong to run lines of hot glue on the bottom for treads? Should I sew a leather sole? My daughter is 1.5 years and I don't want her to fall on slick floors. Any suggestions?
Scroll down here http://doku.bimyo.jp/scd/additional.html to where she is implanting the strands (looping). You can do this with yarn and a needle, you can also lust pull the yarn through and tie it... I've done it all three ways, and yes, it is as easy and yet tedious as it looks. Just remember to go in a spiral pattern and you will be fine!
So, I know you can make toy potatoes (stuffed with polyfil) out of pantyhose... Sounds simple enough... uuurrrmmm... but how do you sew/tie off the pantyhose in an invisible way? I made two and they have weird gatherey-puckers that I can't get out. Does someone here know the trick?
