SilverMoon I love the batman mask/hat. Are you making them to give to a charity or are they being auctioned for charity?

I finished two projects this week so far. Some reusable wrapping and gift bags, I even made a pom-pom for embelishments.


And sweater boots. I used urban threads instructable for a basic how to. They almost got scrapped because when I first tried them they didn't fit how I wanted and looked very sloppy. But I ripped it out tried again. I'm glad I did Smiley The side

Those are some cute reusable gift bags!  I keep trying to convince my partner that we need to use some...but he insists that he loves the sound of ripping paper.  Maybe at the very least I can reuse newspapers or something.  Nice sweater boots too!

Super cute sewing machine cover.  Those owls are too cute. 

My little Aria would love the batman hat/mask!

My partner in OWS received.  I made her dad a car trash bag.  I got the pattern off of here...http://www.scribd.com/doc/24351414/Car-Trash-Tutorial

But, I used webbing instead of using fabric for the straps and I ignored the measurements.  This bag is supposed to be for her father's truck...I imagined he would prefer a bigger trash bag rather than a small one...

 
The bag has two layers of canvas inside with boning to keep it open and allow a grocery bag to be tucked into it.


I seriously need to invest in some different colored serger thread.  Oh well...hopefully he won't mind the red thread too much.

I also made her this scrappy cuff...

This is what it looks like on.


Woohoo!!  Up to 23 items...I just might hit 50 by the end of the year with holiday gifts and all that jazz!

Everything looks great!!  I've managed to get up to 35 projects so far this year!  I'm 5 freakin hexagons away from a Hexagon afghan!  That'll make 36. 

Random question.... I have 3 storage boxes of paper crafting supplies....  I'm not doing as much paper crafting.  I'm finding that I crochet, knit, embroider, play with polymer clay and sometimes make jewelry....  I'm not sure I want to give up everything but I need to clean out.  I need one of those boxes to start housing my poly clay stuff!!!  lol  If anyone is interested in a random smattering of paper crafting supplies let me know!  Smiley

Two more projects done!
A hat for Miss Five's Tuesday teacher, because it was her birthday yesterday:

(I really like that pattern!)

and another hat to add to my charity pile that I whipped up this morning and in the car. We were going to donate them on the way home, but DP was too tired and forgot to take the long way home, so when I get paid again tomorrow or Tuesday I will take Master Three to Melbourne on the train and do it. He'll like that - he's never been on a train before.


That's me at 61!

No, wait, 62! I just forgot - I made my best friend's wife a scarf like the one I made for the Random Swap because while I was making the swap one, I kept thinking how much my friend's wife would like it, so I made her one too. It was a perfect use for a nice chunky soft American yarn  Wink

Love all the really cool charity things on here, and feel super duper guilty for neglecting my 50+ I have gotten a ton done and most is swap related but I just can't seem to find my lists. I also love that we are up to 500 pages and w/ meleriffic's & I's posts we are passed 5001 posts!  Cool KEWL!

We are the kewlest craftalong for sure!!! Cheesy

rlynn--you have given some great details on the trash bag for the car/truck...I always wondered how to make them stay open so they would be used!  I really need a couple of those for our cars....the floor is my hubby's choice and I hate that!!!

love the coily hat!  Also, the little elf hats are so cute....

and, another nice purple scarf!  You make such a lovely model...

the sweater boots turned out fabulous!!
