1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / easy hot water bottle cover tut? on: November 19, 2007 03:04:32 PM
hello  Cheesy Im sorry if this is the wrong place to post this... I couldnt find a place for it and i figured..it was a bag for a water bottle? Grin

Anyway, i wanted to basically sew together some plain fleece and customise it for my moms xmas present but i want it to look nice and profesional(ish) so wondered if anyone had a tutorial to do this.
I did have a scan through the craftster search but didnt find anything...

thanks for any replies  Grin

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Fleece mittens gone wrong! on: August 20, 2007 07:08:41 AM
Hiya, i was wondering if anyone was a experianced 'mittener'  Grin and could give me a few tips!

Basically, i cut out my mitten shapes by tracing round my hand, from some lovely soft fleece i had spare, and all was looking great untill i put them on to find out from my boyfriend that they they look like a pair of oven gloves, haha!  Huh How do i make the thumb part more.. shapely, or tailored (not the right word but you get what i mean!) so they look more like professional adult mittens.

(just to make it clear, im not knitting them, just cut 'n' sew)

thanks in advance! xx
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Sleeping Bags?? on: August 18, 2007 12:13:23 PM
Hey, a newbie here  Grin

Firstly, i am posting in the right section arnt i?

I really want to make a nice cozy sleeping bag, to stay over at friend's houses' and for summer camping!


i don't know how to go about it! Does anybody have any patterns? I can't see it being too difficault, its quite a simple idea...

what 'insulation' should i use? just the normal sheet of wadding?
and whats the softest material to use for the lining? 100% cotten?

is anyone who's made one before that can give me any tips?

thanks in advance!  Smiley
