Memories, memories. All night D&D benders...multi dice lost under the sofa...

I am so gonna have to make one of these. It never occurred to me to wrap one of them. I used to wire-wrap crystals and other semi-precious stones for necklaces, earrings, whatnot. I think I'll go with a D4, one of the little green pyramids, and new age some earrings. Heh.

Good job on yours, and thanks for the idea!

Gorgeous! Classy and classic, and a little skulltastic/deranged. I really love the uzumaki skull spiral over the breast. Nifty focal point!

jewelaroni-- check your inbox.

ravens tail-- I pretty much freehanded everything. (Measuring? What's that?  Grin ) I sketched the idea out on a napkin while we were out, then came home and made it.

Vote number 1 for putting up the pattern.  Grin

Seriously, great job. Loving that fabric.

vintageburlesque- A tute is indeed in the stars...am hunting perfect un-coordinating fabric for version 2.0. So...probably soon.

jewelaroni- Yes! Final Fantasy VII's Cloud Strife, from his Kingdom Hearts cameo. I have a BIG soft spot for FF7.

So, hubby dearest wants an x-stitch Zune cover, and guess who hasn't done any cross stitch since dirt was young? So, frantic runs to fabric stores for thread, etc. Start sewing, get really into it, then encounter the massive problem of hyper 4 and 5 year olds trying to steal my supplies. Where to put them??

Make a travel case, if you're crafty.

It's not as pretty or as professional-looking as my next one will be. (And there WILL be a next one. I loved the results that much.  Grin ) This one was a prototype, and as such just used up some scrap I had in my leftovers bin.

No type of closure on this one, as I didn't have anything suitable on hand.

Inside shot. If I'd had enough of the green jungle print, I'd have made bias tape out of that for the pocket edging, instead. You can't really see the thread pockets on this shot.

So here they are in action. There are actually 2 pockets in every slot: the clear vinyl one, and the print fabric behind. I dig pockets.  Roll Eyes

Double pocket shot!

Pattern and project pocket. Was originally going to be a double pocket as well, but I stitched the animal print down for added stability. Version 2.0 will be a double. (This panel is actually 2 pieces of the border off a big one piece tapestry panel I used for a throw. How's that for maximizing your scrap pile?  Cheesy ) Stability wise, it's backed by plastic canvas and then padded out with quilt batting.

And pattern pocket action shot.

Have already had 4 people ask for one of their own. Dammit. I don't have enough time for my OWN crafty obsession hobbies.

That's my favourite purse style ever. You did a really good job, and I love the lining.

They're all very sweet, but man, the Tiggert blanket is incredible! What did you use for the orange tufts?

Really gorgeous.

Loving the 80's print fabric embellishments. Very nice upgrade.
