Thank you Joler79!

is the handle just plaited or did you use a backing to it?

Joler79 I made the cords and braided them. I don't know how to use a backing. That would be and interesting technique to learn.

Oh it is SOOOO easy!  If I can do it ANYONE can do it!  You just iron the interfacing on to the wrong side of the fabric following the manufacturer's directions! BAM! You're done! There are several kinds of interfacings, some are stiffer than others, some are only "sticky" on one side and some allow you to stick the fabric together with the inter facing in the middle.  Which interfacing you use all depends on the project.  However, I use a very stiff fuseable interfacing that is only "sticky" on one side for just about every project simply because I got 5 yards of it on sale cheap.

Thank you alwaysinmyroom and joler79.  The earrings were fun to make.  I first strung the beads onto a head pin, but didn't like the "stiffness" of the earring, so I took them off and separated the beads into 2 components for each earring, then attached the 2 parts to give them some swing and flexibility.  I'm glad you like them!

A great trick to do with interlining/Staflex/Vilene (loads of brand names) is to lay out a simple design cut from different coloured fabrics, iron the whole lot down and then add embroidery, beads or whatever to decorate the seams and pieces.  This is an easy way to make all sorts of things without masses of sewing - I've used it on my Ice-cream Cushion, which is done, and will be posted soon, I promise

Sewknitter - Your bag is adorable! It's reversible? What's the inside look like?

PinkyK - Did you say something about clothing made out of potholders? You've piqued my curiosity. I'd love to see what you made.

Uluru and Kalona - the jewelry is so pretty! I used to do a lot of bead-work, but never with wire, and I've always wanted to learn So pretty!!!

Stephen Weaver - can't wait to see the ice cream cushion!

And am I a loser cuz I don't know who Auntie Mame is?  Undecided

Here you go! A link to my Kitschy Couture Ensemble!

My avatar is also a picture of the skirt. It is made out of 18 pot holders. The purse is made out of three.

Aunty Mame is a character from a book, play and movie.  I prefer the Rosalind Russell version of the movie.  She is over the top and flamboyant.  She is "left" her nephew to raise and the movie is about living life to its fullest and staying true to yourself no matter what life throws at you!

Well, I couldn't sleep for some reason tonight, so I made my PINK project!  I wanted to make something useful so I thought a sunglasses pouch would be perfect!  I went a little crazy with taking pictures, but I hope you like it!  The fabric IS pink, but it seems that my camera is making it look a little peach-ish and It's ruining it's cuteness!

Here is my pink item for June! It's a birthday party invitation for my niece.  She is going to be one in a couple of weeks. 

There are more pictures and details here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=16740113.0



This one was actually a team effort so I'm going to try to finish another pink item. I still have a placemat purse to finish and it has a bunch of pink details.

PinkyK, I bought a bolt of the stuff, because I had "big" ideas for making little cases with zippers for my friends. . . only I have the whole bolt, and never did the cases. . .  Actually that's on the agenda for my vacation. So I will have tons more for stuff.

PinkyK, love the skirt and the jewelry on your link.

I still don't understand how you'd get a braid with backing. would you lay a giant piece of cloth on the handbag sized interfacing, then scrunch it into a braid shape and iron?
