these are my 3 little ladies, I made them last night, two are still under construction, and they are smaller then a pc mouse Cheesy
I used that crazy wool for hair, and buttons to finish them off, I have also added a keyring loop to the end of the ribbon, so they could be bag charms or keys rings.

16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / simplicity 2892 pattern gulp, bought it and duno what to do on: May 31, 2008 05:35:23 AM
hi crafters, I bought this pattern as I saw some lovely tops on here using this pattern. well it came in the post today, I like pattern A the best, but it looks so hard  Cry, I have never made a item of clothing since school  Cry
is it so hard, or am I being a baby? do I cut out my size or trace over my size? I know to iron the pattern lol (hopeless) I am a complete noob
17  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / MY FIRST TEA WALLET! mad fabric! on: May 30, 2008 07:25:19 AM
I made this today, at first, I tried making one without the tut! (silly moo huh) and made a complete mess of it, so I followed the tut, I cut a template out and away I went, I must admit, I am pants at following instructions and had to unpick it twice!
anyway I have had these fabrics kicking about my fabric box for years so thought I would give it a try!
and I love it! I will make more now I am comfortable making them, for my family

inside with a bag

what do you think? and a big thank you yo 'bag and hat lady' for the tut Kiss

18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / what shall I make with this fabric? on: May 28, 2008 09:50:28 AM
hey people, if i have posted this in the wrong place I am sorry (I am a newbie)
I bought a metre of this today for 3! I want to make a item of clothing, but it has to be super easy, I would like a top rather then a skirt,
its cotton and poly mix.
any ideas please

19  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / my first ever Tote bag! on: May 27, 2008 10:27:07 AM
ok guys and dolls! I made this bag today, its my first attempt at a bag, I also made it reversable, and I made it as I went along Undecided if only I looked at the tut on making a tote bag first...ohhh well we live and learn
and I like my bag, its a little smaller, well actually I can put 4pt milk carton in it and bread, I added the scotty dog as I have about 20 of them in my sewing box, finishes the bag of nicely I hope, alos two little yellow buttons at each side to help it stay in place lol
thanks for peeking![img][/img]
