A friend asked me to make her son a pillow/cushion cover for his pillow to take to kinder for nap time. The only conditions were that it was boyish & had his name on it. The font is from my machine & the Alien is from Urban Threads.

104  Beautiful Beaded Bracelets in Crochet: Completed Projects by skittlebub on: February 22, 2011 08:17:20 PM
I used a tutorial on crafbits.com to make these. I just varied the amount of chain between beads depending on how big the beads were. It took about half an hour to make all 6.

I used bamboo cotton & glass beads, with a 3mm hook

106  Nappy Wallet *edited to include a "sort-of" tute in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by skittlebub on: February 22, 2011 08:12:21 PM
After getting a small stroller, I needed something I could just grab & go with a couple of nappies & wipes.
I saw a few nappy wallets here on Craftser, so here's my take on a nappy wallet.

*Here's what I posted in the 50 things thread*
It's sort of between A4 & A5 for the base.

I just layed a nappy & the wipes container on a sheet of newspaper &  got a rectangle 17" x 11.5" (inches) for the outer. 2 pieces needed plus I used a layer of calico bewteen them.
For the two pockets I cut 11.5" x 6.5". I cut 4 pieces

I sewed the long edges of the pockets together to make a tube, turned inside out, ironed then topstiched. Then I placed the pockets where I wanted them on the inner piece or the main part & attched on 1 long side only. Then put the other main piece facing  the pockets. Sew around the outside leaving a gap to turn. Turn & iron, then topstitch. Attach whatever fastenings you want. I used velco because it's the quickest & there was some on my sewing table

If it's not clear enough let me know, I can make a tutorial because a friend has asked me to make her a wallet too

107  Wipes Case with sort-of tute in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by skittlebub on: February 22, 2011 08:09:16 PM
A wipes case for a friend who's expecting at Easter, I saw these on sale for $30 at a kids market so I decided to make my own with stuff in my stash.

All I did was use a travel wipes case & glue some wadding over the "clip top" then I used 2 pieces of cotton print material & hot glued it to the bottom & top of the case. Taking care not to glue the case shut. I then used an exacto knife to trim the excess. Then I hot glued the ribbon around the edge.

108  Coffee roll-up in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by skittlebub on: February 22, 2011 07:49:47 PM
A friend of mine who loves tea wallets wanted something to keep her coffee sachets in & this is what I came up with.

It's similar to a crayon roll, I'm not 100% happy with, just need to tweak the pattern a bit.

109  Dance Shoe Bags in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by skittlebub on: February 22, 2011 07:45:32 PM
So my daughter started dancing lessons at the same school as a friend of ours & she was willing to give us her outgrown uniform for a trade of bags to keep her shoes in.

They are A5 size, fully lined & have a drawstring.
I used pale pink cordoury for the outer & pale pink cotton with white polkadots for the inner.
I used the font on my embroidery machine & the bird pattern is from Urban Threads

110  Slippers, Scarf, Blanket & dish/wash cloths in Crochet: Completed Projects by skittlebub on: February 10, 2011 05:36:15 PM
Here's a few of my latest crochet projects

Slippers made from purple fluffy yarn, also has silver flecks through it.
The band is multicoloured feathers yarn.
I started off with a pattern but it was too confusing after the frist round so I made it how I thought it should go.

Granny square blanket
Made with beige & off white acrylic yarn for my mum. It's about the width of a double bed.
Here's the edging

It took me over 80 hours over 7 months to complete, I won't be making another of these for a while!

3-2-1 ruffle scarf ( on Ravelry) I edited the pattern a bit because it wasn't wide enough
Dish/wash cloths, just crochet squares with a hanging loop, I made 8 of these in total with 1 partialy used ball of yarn.

Thanks for looking
