1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Stuffed Mounted Zebra Head on: October 17, 2011 05:32:16 PM
I made this for my sister's birthday this year. I was totally surprised at how it turned out. I found a stick horse pattern at a friend's house and used it to make the head. i just couldn't see buying a stuffed animal to throw most of it away. I mounted it to the board using upholstery tacks. I had so much fun with it and it seems like she likes it, too.

Yeah. The pockets took a little more time. I was eternally paranoid that I would sew them to the outside and have to start over.
The pattern itself had very few pieces and it came together extremely quickly. Even the interfacing. I definitely recommend it to anyone. I am hoping that I can use that pattern and embellish and modify it to my heart's content.

      I have been collecting patterns, hitting the stores on 99 cent pattern day. This is one I picked up because there were very few pieces and it claimed it could be finished in an hour. The front drawings are not very attractive but I thought I could update it. Of course it sat in the pattern drawer for some time before I attempted it.

      The fabric is stretchy so I didn't need to bother with the zipper.

      I added pockets using in the How-To section on the Burda site. The sleeve fabric matches the pockets, which really only serves to please me. Oh, and that's a silver pin at near the neck. I was heading out to the grandparent's party.

      This the pattern envelope. It is not from a garage sale or thrift store. It was bought this year. Some of these seriously need a re-vamp.

Any way you could reload the pics? It sounds awesome.

I used to keep my handbags at the top of the closet where neither, I, nor anyone else, could see them. Now I display them on the wall held by small hooks that are easy to hand screw. I just moved so I can't post a picture, but I will as soon as it is up. (probably around 2 weeks)
I choose the best bags or the ones with the most visual interest and lay them out on the floor to decide their layout. then I use push pins to test it on the wall and adjust. When I am happy, I replace the pins with the hooks. The small hole made by the pin is usually a decent starter for the hook.  I use 2 hooks for clutches and super-heavy bags. The hole left behind in the wall in quite small so I have never had trouble with angry landlords.
The rest of the bags are stored in the same manner as the other suggestions or on top of my closet.
Good Luck!

Thanks for the super nice comments. It is super comfortable and was quite easy to make. I have been hiding my zippers in side seams lately and it seems to be working out
