1  old dressing gown = new upcycled necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Polstar on: September 30, 2009 11:14:49 AM
Ok this was a first try at an idea I had last night.  I decided to make hoops out of recycled material - then sewed them together.  I then added recycled embellishments.  It's not perfect and I'm not even sure if it's finished yet - so let's call it a work in progress Smiley

Any feedback would be greatfully received (ps: sorry for the poor quality photo - I had to use my Blackberry because my husband has my camera).

2  HELP! How can I save this bag? in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by Polstar on: September 22, 2009 10:57:55 PM
Ok - I tried to make it and it failed.  I bought my records and cut my material.  However the bag was too small for the LP and too large for the single.  So I decided to add the single anyway - and sew around it (which still needs finishing) but it looks really awful.  I love the actual bag itself - but how can I save what I've already done around the record?  Any ideas gratefully received.

If possible I'd like to finish it off with upcycled items rather than having to go and buy something new!

3  Crazy quilting - what have I got myself into? in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by Polstar on: September 20, 2009 05:30:43 PM
I've been creating this 'crazy' quilt for a while now.  It's not exactly brilliant but I'm quite liking the way some of it's coming together.  What would you do with it?  And please don't say 'chuck it in the bin!' Smiley

I'd really like some tips on making it look better.  I really am quite useless at embroidery so I was wondering what else people recommend.

Also I'd like to start to create a proper quilt for our King Size bed - how do I start? What's the best pattern to start with?
Any advice would be greatly received.  I intend to make it almost entirely out of recycled/ repurposed material.

5  Ooookies - my first upcycled toys in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Polstar on: September 20, 2009 03:16:25 PM
Well, these are Ooookies, made by me because I didn't know what else to try and make!
They're made out of t-shirts and the velvety ones are made from an upcycled skirt I got from a charity shop.  There are another three hidden in the house - they're hard to get together because they don't like the light and tend to hide in corners.  We have many corners for them to hide in.

Can now post photos ... wheee ... so here they are:

I'm not posting the others as they need rotating and they're not rotating properly on this.
I'd really appreciate some feedback on my first attempt.

Design and conception purely my own Smiley
Well ... I like them! hee hee
