1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bag for knitting needles on: July 25, 2010 12:19:46 PM
After I made a bag like this for a swap, my sister requested one like it for her birthday.
I was able to improve some things that I learned while making the first one and now
here it is:



I added a place for a little notepad as my sister is always taking notes while knitting
and the elastic loop can hold a pencil.

Some seams are crooked and it's not perfect, but as I'm still a beginner at sewing, I'm really proud of it anyway!  Smiley
I hope it will have a place for everything she needs to carry around for her knitting!
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Door wreath - winter theme on: January 17, 2010 11:05:35 AM
Some time ago, I saw a door wreath like this on a crafting blog and I liked it so much, it stayed in my mind.
Now I finally came round to make one in winter colors for my door.
As much as I would like to give credit to the person I got the idea from, I can't find it anymore! Hers was in orange and red.
If anyone knows where I found it, please tell me, so I can insert a link.

The pompoms are just knotted to a straw wreath and I glued a bow with a little snowflake on it. So easy!

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Little monsters on kitchen towels on: January 17, 2010 10:54:05 AM
I embroidered 2 kitchen towels for friends as a Christmas present.
The pattern is from Urban Threads.
As I had some problems to transfer the motive to the waffled fabric, I free-handed
most of the monsters with the printed pattern lying next to me.
Also as I had to free-hand it anyway, I made them a bit bigger than the pattern was originally.
Here they are - I hope you like them.

4  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Alternative uses for soap? on: December 23, 2009 03:47:05 AM
Hello Everybody!

I have the following problem:
I bought myself a piece of soap a few days ago. It was pretty expensive and smells
very good.
Unfortunately, I seem to be allergic against an ingredient, because after using the soap,
my skin got very hot and had a very christmassy red color...  Sad

Does anyone have an idea what to do with this bar of soap now?
I searched online, but I found only recipies to make new soap or liquid soap out of

Has anyone ever used soap in a sachet for the closet or something like that? Will it make stains in my clothes?

Thanks for your help!
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Names of my friends kids made from cardbord (for their doors) on: May 20, 2009 03:13:25 AM
I actually made these a while ago, but I haven't had the courage to post something I made
on Craftster yet...

I made the names of my friends kids out of cardbord to hang them on their doors.
This was a gift for them, as the second child was born.
On each letter is an animal which starts with that letter (in my language - I'm from Germany).

I used different sources to inspire me for the animals, as I'm not good at drawing without
a sample lying in front of me. Some of them are from an old childrens book and some of them are from a gift wrapping paper I had at home.



And a close-up of the chameleon, which I liked most of all the animals:

I hope you like them.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Christine Haynes - Book "Chic & simple sewing" ?? on: May 15, 2009 02:01:01 AM
I saw the advertising for this book on Craftster yesterday and I thought it sounds interesting.
Now I was wondering if somebody already has this book and would recommend it (or not  Wink ).

I'm a sewing newbie, but I get better and more courageous with every finished project
that doesn't look too bad...  Grin
