really?Huh did you use any type of pattern as a guideline as to where to cut or did you just wing it? It came together so nicely and is well laid out...did you have a lot of scraps leftover or did you pretty much use all of the sweater?

I know the scraps will become even more cute stuff...
 

nope, no pattern, no guide, just kinda winged it.........and it was total luck with how well it all came together.... the next one HAS to be easier.....

 there were scraps, not a lot ....and no BIG pieces....but they are cut into some other things waiting for transfomation ..... another new project for me .......

OK, got this awesomeness from Beeker.



It is a woodburned gourd and is shellacked. Here is the other side and you can see the detail and evenness of all the lines.



BUT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





This is one awesome container and fits so tightly, you cannot tell that the top is removable. I think I am going to store my embroidery flosses in here.

THANKS FOR BEING MY AWESOME PARTNER BEEKER!!!!

I have a thing for boxes and containers of any type, and I don't know how you figured that out about me. Big hugs.

Have fun out with your gift tonight.

Awesome gourd! I couldn't even tell it had a removable lid in the first couple photos.

And I love the jacket. Phizzy, it looks very "you". Grin
