234  Jordy bags for shopping bags in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ScrappySue on: October 12, 2007 07:46:44 PM
Hi, I made 6 bags last night by using Jordys method, so am pretty happy  Smiley
They are to be gifts , for my relatives to use for shopping to save using those pesky plastic bags.
I used curtain fabric offcuts, for two reasons, they where a good price and the fact that they already had a type of lining saved me having to interface them.
( I know, Im lazy!)
The beauty of using the stiffened fabric also is that there was no fraying so I didnt need to zigzag any edges, speeding up production no end.
For new sewers, a tip I have found is to make two at least of what ever you are making, you get them both done almost as quick as one, just keep feeding the fabric production line style under the foot.
Saves cutting the cotton, and starting up a new seam. (now that was clear as mud, but hopefully made some sense)
When I was buying the fabric a lady asked me what I was doing and when I told her she suggested that the bags may be at least partly waterproof due to the lining, so thats a thought too.
The only thing I dont know, not having done this before, is how well they wear. Has anyone any idea how well curtain fabric holds up to wear and tear as a shopping bag? and any washing instructions would be appreciated.

Please excuse the sideways pics, I will figure that part out  Smiley

235  Uthando Project in Crafty Charitable/Social Causes by ScrappySue on: October 12, 2007 07:31:12 PM
Hi, at my work we have started making dolls for the Uthando project
It is basically a project of making dolls for children in Africa affected by AIDS
We are making dolls, with complete set of clothes and a change of clothes in a cloth bag.
There are a few requirements that we have been told to adhere to, for example, the dolls are to be brown (not black),
have non floppy necks and the collection point we are sending ours too before posting are quite firm that the dolls have knickers on.
anyhoo, we have a made a few so here are some pics so you can get an idea what its all about if you feel like joining in.
If you would like to know more , please feel free to message me and I will help as best I can, thanks for reading.

the first two pics look like a police line up, Smiley but hopefully are clear enough, the other pic was an attempt to show all our work so far including the bags in the back, and additional garments at the front.

added on the 15/10/07
Heres the ones we are working on at the moment, some great work by the ladies at work!
Just have to make some more clothes now to dress them.

thanks for looking!  Smiley

236  A "positive affimation" type book for a friend in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by ScrappySue on: September 24, 2007 02:06:06 AM
I had a lady I know only a little, tell me how she felt she had nothing to live for and did not value herself at all.
I thought it was the saddest thing.
So I have made this book to give to her, hope she likes it.

** I am adding back the photos, after checking it was ok with her.

237  First bag, "Moo" and Stars in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ScrappySue on: September 24, 2007 01:54:43 AM
I had to try a bag after seeing this fantastic effort
so tried a zipless version with some star fabric and moo fabric.
I forgot the interfacing till it was too late but still am happy, since I was guessing with the size I wanted and the handle is just the right length! Woo hoo!

239  starting the apron fetish in Needlework: Completed Projects by ScrappySue on: September 16, 2007 07:39:23 AM
Ok I have lately become besotted with aprons, and drooling over the pics in Crafster is not helping....."wonders aloud if there is an apron anon meeting anywhere?"
Anyhoo, these are some small embroideries I have made recently to attach to ready made aprons, to help me get my "fix".
The designs are "Aunt Martha's" iron ons I found at "Spotlight",

240  Skulls in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by ScrappySue on: September 16, 2007 07:19:47 AM
strictly speaking I didnt make these, my son made one and my nephew the other, but it is with a press cast molding technique, and I made the original skull, and the mould, so figure without that, and my help.... any how, Im proud of the boys efforts so here they are after one firing.
White clay, presscast mould, from a hand made plaster mould, after one firing, before decorating.

My son is going for a warrior look, my nephew has done Harry Potters skull
