1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Bright Spring Baby Quilt! (It actually IS Spring here down under) on: October 26, 2008 07:20:38 PM
I finally finished a baby quilt I made for my art teacher.

She's due in December but I wanted to finish it earlier due to the start of the horrible HSC year (last year of Australian secondary school, exams up to your eyes).

It's my first quilt and is about 97 cm x 112 cm.
There's about 7 different fabrics in there. The pattern is 'ninepatch cot quilt' (and I have lost the book >_>)

It has a few small errors on one edge of binding but I'm really pleased with it.

Modelled by my dumb-expression sister- the one I made this cake for: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=271546.0

Thanks for looking!

Ah, her name's Lucinda- Binda is a family nickname that doesn't really make sense Roll Eyes

Hey all,
So I've made a cake for my little sister- it's her birthday tomorrow.

I wish it had a smoother, more professional-looking finish, but wth- it was fun. Chocolate cake, choc-orange buttercream, and tri-coloured marshmallow fondant. I personally can't wait to eat it.... *surreptitious drool*

Thanks for looking =)

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: What are you making for Christmas this year (2008)? on: August 31, 2008 06:27:54 AM
I am poor and have a list way too long for big Christmas presents, so I'm making most people:

1. Martha Stewart's Gingerbread Caramels (If anyone has made these, will they keep more than a few days in a 25-30 degrees Celsius weather? That's 77-86 Fahrenheit. Australian summer <__<).

2. Handmade christmas cards (I make stacks of cards from both drawings and japanese chiyogami paper).

I'm also making my art teacher a baby quilt as she is expecting in December =)

Ooh, thanks inez, I will try the freezer paper- hadn't heard that one before!
Thanks for all your comments =) They are about 10cm tall each.

Hi! I've made some little dolls over the last few months. They are pretty wonky (I had no idea how to cut patterns or sew neatly, haha) but it kind of adds to the charm. I was maybe planning on selling (better- neater) versions of these at a craft market so if you have any opinion on that, I'd love to hear it!

My two favourites.

Thanks for looking =)
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Yet another 'denim jeans----> shoulder bag' recon! on: August 10, 2008 01:53:29 PM
So I did have a pair of ridiculously unflattering jeans in the cupboard.
And I did have a lot of work to do.

So I now have a jeans bag! I love the way conflicting statements work themselves out like that.
No picture of the jeans before recon, unfortunately. I have one complete leg and 2/3 of the other leg left over- more things I can make!

There is one pocket to fit something small- phone/ipod/keys- and one pocket for 5 pens or brushes. There is also a secret pocket in the fly (I couldn't resist) for emergency money etc. In the recon spirit, the lining is an old sheet =P

Thanks for looking!!
