I think that's totally fair cyndiq. I'm really not sure what everyone wants from me at present, but I am fairly certain I have everything I need to start asap.

Either way I am doing some serious coin-tossing about what to choose as well (how can there be so many yummy crafts up for grabs! no fair!)

Problem is I don't think my yarn stash would fit in my car, cyndiq! I did take some stuff with me to the house-minding...

Here are pictures of my offerings: The Geek Chic Shoppe is now open!
5 of my "Pulp Greetings" cards per pack, made from the covers of truly awful paperbacks. They come with envelopes and are blank to use for all occasions:


My big totes. I can make them in a variety of fabrics. This is "Mexican Cowboy" fabric and a "Shabby Chic/ Country Living" version. I can also do Sesame Street and various colours and florals or an office version using suit fabric for the main part and ties for handles.

This is the Mini-Tote. Good for evenings or going out with the girls to lunch. I can make it in a variety of fabrics, including some fancier evening-types and can use various trimmings (beaded fringe, ribbon, lace, braid). They are fully lined. Also available in  Elmo version in red boucle (one only) and Sexy Frenchmaid version (one only) in black satin with white ruched lace and elasticated handles for "naughty" bounce.

Side view. See things don't fall out because they are narrower at the top.

And they really hold a lot! See?:

All of this was in the actual bag while the photo was taken.

Finally the jewellery:
Asian earrings with chain and bead necklace:

Or if you prefer a thread and ribbon bead necklace on its own (they take longer):

I can make the thread version in greens, red opaque beads or pearls. The threads will be in similar toning colours and the ribbons will be strong or pastel colours.
The wrist cuffs/warmers or headband . They can be plain knit stitch with a coloured intarsia design such as a heart, star or short word (geek, Love etc)

Or they can be one colour but in a lace patterned stitch. I have yarn in most colours of the rainbow.
     
This one is a prototype I did in rough green wool but it can be done in cotton (or any yarn) or made narrower if you prefer.
So there it is!

Alrighty everyone.  I now have an "online shop" you can check out with pics of all my stuff.  Seriously, these items only take about an hour to make (maybe a wee bit more - but definitely NOT over 2 hours) so all my stuff is, I guess, medium sized.

Here is the shop link:  http://home.exetel.com.au/wootton/craft%20shoppe/_sgt/f10000.htm 

ENJOY BROWSING!!!  Grin Grin Grin

I have also updated the pictures earlier in this posting (page 3) http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=145547.20

Quote from: tanza
QDIY did you ever get round to checking and seeing if it was indeed the cheaper alum cause the problem of ink washing out excessively?

Tanza:  I did make up the solution and if you look at page 3 of this thread, the cosmetic bag I made using this solution (made with the cheaper alum).  The results were the same - no excessive loss of colour.  I am thinking maybe it might be the printer ink.  Huh
