1  Bag for knitting needles in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Leilani79 on: July 25, 2010 12:19:46 PM
After I made a bag like this for a swap, my sister requested one like it for her birthday.
I was able to improve some things that I learned while making the first one and now
here it is:



I added a place for a little notepad as my sister is always taking notes while knitting
and the elastic loop can hold a pencil.

Some seams are crooked and it's not perfect, but as I'm still a beginner at sewing, I'm really proud of it anyway!  Smiley
I hope it will have a place for everything she needs to carry around for her knitting!

Okay - so this is me wearing the hat:

I'm sorry I don't have a better picture yet - I had to photograph myself...

As promised yesterday, the pictures of the awesome things Tofty sent me!

Everything arrived neatly wrapped in fabric with little tags:

The first present I opened was this super cute little keyring pendant, which is definitely too nice to be hidden on my keyring inside my bag and will have to find a better place, so I can show it off:

I squealed with delight when I opened the second present and found a little cupcake
with a candle. This cupcake is currently decorating my table next to the flowers I got for my birthday. Later it can be used as a pin cushion.

Have you noticed the cute little sprinkles on it?!

All this was topped by the third present, when my long-held wish came true
and I unwrapped this super cool kitty hat:

I LOVE it and wore it yesterday when I went out for dinner. To my surprise, it caused a lot of different reactions while I was walking through the city! It definitely isn't a hat to wear if you don't want to get noticed!  Cheesy
If someone requests an action shot, I could post one.

At last, I was surprised with a little extra present. It was decorated with a cute little brooch made out of fabric, which I'm wearing right now.

Inside was a tin can decorated with stars from the Fifties and inside of the tin can were some Jelly Babies.

So many awesome things! I couldn't be happier!

4  Door wreath - winter theme in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Leilani79 on: January 17, 2010 11:05:35 AM
Some time ago, I saw a door wreath like this on a crafting blog and I liked it so much, it stayed in my mind.
Now I finally came round to make one in winter colors for my door.
As much as I would like to give credit to the person I got the idea from, I can't find it anymore! Hers was in orange and red.
If anyone knows where I found it, please tell me, so I can insert a link.

The pompoms are just knotted to a straw wreath and I glued a bow with a little snowflake on it. So easy!

5  Little monsters on kitchen towels in Needlework: Completed Projects by Leilani79 on: January 17, 2010 10:54:05 AM
I embroidered 2 kitchen towels for friends as a Christmas present.
The pattern is from Urban Threads.
As I had some problems to transfer the motive to the waffled fabric, I free-handed
most of the monsters with the printed pattern lying next to me.
Also as I had to free-hand it anyway, I made them a bit bigger than the pattern was originally.
Here they are - I hope you like them.

6  Names of my friends kids made from cardbord (for their doors) in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by Leilani79 on: May 20, 2009 03:13:25 AM
I actually made these a while ago, but I haven't had the courage to post something I made
on Craftster yet...

I made the names of my friends kids out of cardbord to hang them on their doors.
This was a gift for them, as the second child was born.
On each letter is an animal which starts with that letter (in my language - I'm from Germany).

I used different sources to inspire me for the animals, as I'm not good at drawing without
a sample lying in front of me. Some of them are from an old childrens book and some of them are from a gift wrapping paper I had at home.



And a close-up of the chameleon, which I liked most of all the animals:

I hope you like them.
