I have been on role making these for Christmas gifts for all my silly friends who like to run.  Wink
I've actually made several more than are pictured here but this is a sampling of the different fabrics. Thanks to Leah for the great tutorial on how to make these!

This one is made from a fabric that is coated with something like laminate.

Some others, opened and closed:

Do you think they make good gifts?
22  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / old corduroy shirt into hipslinger + Updated with new item on: August 15, 2007 06:43:38 PM
I am so pumped about this! It is perfect for when I go rollerblading.  Cool Big thanks to rocknroar for her awesome tutorial! Cheesy Cheesy
This used to be my favorite shirt but it got kind of short and I never wear it any more, but I still love the color and the fabric so I made it into my new hipslinger.

Here it is on:


And the inside:

And here is a new one I just made for a swap

The description pretty much says it all. I made this while I was recovering from my tonsillectomy  Sad
I wish I would have made a closeup pic 'cause some of the buttons are really neat.

I made this using this awesome tutorial from Queenofdiy.  I've almost finished two more. I love how it folds up into its own pocket.

And here it is folded up all cozy

Thanks for lookin'

Just want to say that this was a great idea for a challenge. We are all winners with this one since we are doing something to help the environment.
Since I have several small totes I use for grocery shopping, I wanted to make a really big one that could hold as much as a big brown paper bag (but without ripping as they tend to do when loaded down with milk and heavy stuff). So I used a paper grocery bag as my pattern.

So here it is:

And the inside, fully loaded:

Close up of the embroidery:

And the trim:

Good luck to all!
26  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Mosaic ... Wedding Gift for my hubby on: August 04, 2007 03:38:27 PM
Now that I have figured out how to post, I am on a roll. This is what I made my husband when we got married (that was going on four years ago but since I am new to Craftster I am just now posting it). It was my first and only mosaic.  It hangs near our back door (NOT over it...it is pretty heavy and I was afraid to hang it over a doorway in case it ever falls). Hope you all like it!

Here it is. The word "imagine" has special significance to us (long story but it was meant to be more of a sentimental gift)

And here is where it hangs:

Thanks for looking! Comments?
27  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Sink Skirt to hide litter box on: August 04, 2007 03:22:18 PM
I made this sink skirt to hide the kitties' litter box that is under the sink. You can't really tell in the photo but the fabric is searsucker. It is attached with velcro.

Here is Tony, very proud of his bathroom:

And here is the nastiness the skirt is hiding (wish it could hide the smell too  Tongue:

Thanks for looking.
28  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My First Post! Insulated Lunch bag for Mom on: August 04, 2007 03:09:56 PM
This is my first post and I just want to say that I am so thrilled to have found this crafting community! I can't even say how many hours I have spent on this site since I was introduced to it a few weeks ago. There are some majorly talented and creative people on here! I hope I am posting my pictures the right way. I guess I'll find out soon  Undecided

I made this insulated lunch bag for my mom for Christmas (I'm getting an early start Wink. She is crafty too so that's why I chose the outer fabric. The lining is cotton with a plastic/vinyl coating so that it can be wiped off. I've had that fabric for years just waiting for some inspiration. I still have some of it left if anyone has any ideas of what to do with the rest of it.

Here is the outside:

Here is the inside before I added the handle:

Thanks so much for looking. I would love some feedback!
