Inspiration without application is moot.

Cute reference to the Woven Monster...leave it to NOO to make it up so cute!  I would find it a treasure to get that loom for so cheap!  Well, it'll be 12 hours of sitting two girls(kitteh terrorists) and it is hot outside(Yay)  I may take them to the McD's later(down the road), Otherwise, it's me and my crochet today. *sanity*

I can't believe how productive everyone has been on this board; way back in January I posted a list of projects that I was sure I would get my teeth stuck into but life got in the way as it does!  But now I can present my first finished item, which wasn't even on the list, of course  Roll Eyes  It's the Buginarug cowl from Berocco and it is incredibly easy; great for beginners - just a whole heap of casting on and off.  I used Shadow Tweed Fuschia by Patons, the colours are much darker than my photos, more of a grape to boysenberry colour.  I love the variegated wool, it gave it more oomph.  Hopefully I will be posting again soon now that the drought is broken!  I also got to use up some Fimo as well, to make the buttons, yay me!  Smiley





 
(this is closer to the colour for both the wool and the buttons)

do you think its possible to make a fabric paper mache? then you could still have all your scraps but in a solid form. Hands would look good, or ohhh birds!
I used to beat myself up about scraps, but they can just take up space in your room, and in your brain. Its ok to let the scraps go to fabric heaven.
Today I was making doll quilts and my strips where too small, so I started joining some together before using. Gave an interesting patchwork look with no effort at all. Ill post pics after I have recovered from work. That could be a saleable product for you.

What a lovely cowl!  It looks amazingly complicated!  I love the twists and turns...and the color is gorgeous!

wow--I wish I had not seen the woven monster...it took everything I had to throw out the snips of fabrics and yarn...I even pulled some out thinking I could use it for stuffing or something...but I threw them out again...my rule now is that if I cannot use the scrap to make TM poptarts or fabric bookmarkers, out it goes! Cheesy

Heck yeah! I like working with either thin fabric or at least tissue paper best of all-can't stand using the traditional newspaper. Can't figure out how to link to someone else's pics, but for the Steampunk ornament swap last Christmas, I did an Agatha Heterodyne doll, and two airships. (Before I had a camera, so only one of the airships was posted, sigh.) I used a mini nerf football base, lots of old cotton fabric, and a LOT of cheap white craft glue, paint, and misc. for the airships.'Twas fun.
