211  Paper Clay Sculpture Ladies in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by ScrappySue on: December 01, 2007 03:40:15 AM
My daughter came over today and showed me how to do these.
Lots of fun!
They need to be dried and fired, and possibly glazed but I couldnt resist showing you the two I did today.

212  Scrappy's Jordy in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ScrappySue on: November 27, 2007 07:06:05 AM
I decided tonight to make a bag just for me, with all my favorite stash stuff.
Tiny geisha girl fabrics, blues and reds, stars, ribbons, pockets and snaps, tags to hang things.
So here it is!

The straps have a different ribbon on each one, I didnt have enough of either one to do two straps, but I think it looks fine.

The ends of the bag "pinch" in with snaps, I like the way it holds the bag sort of shut but without a formal closure. The ribbon is to hang things of the bag, like beads etc.

The inside showing three of the four tags, two are ribbon, two are fabric.

Inside pocket.

Inside zippered pocket.

The bottom.

Im pretty happy with how it turned out! Grin
Thanks for looking,

213  Re: Uthando Project Craftalong - Dolls for Charity in Craftalongs by ScrappySue on: November 26, 2007 02:13:15 AM
Today I dropped off ten more completed dolls, made by the ladies and myself from work.
I am pleased to say that this makes a total of 32 dolls that we have donated!
The photos are a little dark but please rest assured the dolls are a dark brown not black.
Thanks for looking,

214  rabbit in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by ScrappySue on: November 26, 2007 01:56:23 AM
I usually make bags, not toys, but felt compelled to make this rabbit from an idea I could not get out of my head.
(he's meant to be uneven..........in case you where wondering, lol! )

215  Re: another petal pouch :) - blue and brown in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ScrappySue on: November 22, 2007 07:00:09 PM
I had a go at this today.
I had a few problems but I've figured out why, the next one should be better.
But on the whole I think its still really cute!




Thanks for posting this great idea!

216  Pumpkin Bag (very image heavy) with tute in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ScrappySue on: November 22, 2007 08:14:26 AM
This is a bag a friend showed me how to do ages ago, I have no idea where she got the idea.
Her bags where really cool!
Anyway, I felt compelled to try and make one this evening.
I think it looks bigger in the pics than it really is, but its a good size, it tucks under my arm nicely and should hold a fair bit of stuff.
If I try it again, I think I'll make it with an inside pocket also.
Thanks for looking! Smiley

It started life as 3 large circles, outside, padding and liner. If my fabric had been big enough I would have done it a metre in diameter, but its about 85 cm across.

I sewed these together, starting from the middle heading to the outside, six lines, I think 8 might have been good too.

I sewed around the edge gathering folds of fabric as I went.

I didn't gather it enough the first time around so went around again till it started to pull in at the top.

With the top sewn

The band is approx 86 cm long.

I ironed one side down a seam allowance width.
Sewed it together to make a band and sewed it around the inside first.

I adjusted the fit as I sewed, adding a couple more small folds.

This is what it looks like with band sewn to the inside.

Folded the band over and sewed the ironed edge around the outside.

This would probably look a lot better hand sewn or even pinned into place.

But by now you have the bag made and just need to add handles.

The handles are approx 78cm long. Make them twice as wide as you want them. Iron them folded in half.

Fold the edges into the middle and iron.

Top stitch along both edges

I attached them by folding and stitching onto the band, but now I think about it I could have sewn them into the band....(maybe)
and voila! new bag!
Its a quick bag to make. Smiley

217  Round Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ScrappySue on: November 21, 2007 11:01:57 PM
I thought I'd try a round purse.
The fabrics where both quite sturdy so I didn't use any interfacing.
This is a prototype ( lol, that explains away any unintentional "design features" )
thanks for looking, feedback welcome

pink with stars on the inside

butterfly camo on the outside, pink chunky zip.

218  Scrap Thread Holder in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ScrappySue on: November 18, 2007 04:34:52 AM
A friend at work, who does a lot of cross stitch embroidery, asked me to make a scrap thread holder in the shape of a box, which would fold up and go in her sewing bag.
This is what I came up with.
Its a square with a cross of stiff interfacing to hold it in the box shape, with snap closures on two sides, with an elastic loop to hold it closed.

side view with snap

from the top

folded up with elastic wrap holding it shut

open to give you an idea how it works

thanks for looking

219  Pottery class in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by ScrappySue on: November 14, 2007 06:24:54 AM
Im doing a ceramic unit at Tafe and thought I'd post what I have been doing.
I went in today hoping to get some stuff fired but no luck, while I was there I did throw 8 pots however. So quite pleased with that.

These are the first three pots I made, thought they might be ok as small cactus pots in the garden

These five are my next attempt, first attempt at glazing. I was pretty happy when I went to get them, despite the colours being differant to what I had planned. ( I just  dont get how a green turns brown but hey............ these things happen!)

Thanks for looking!
