1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / BUSTER the scrap robot on: August 19, 2011 10:11:01 PM
Meet Buster the scrap robot. I made Buster for a friends new baby also called Buster. All made from scrap fabric.

2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / what to do with a spare 2 minutes??? Button bookmark. on: July 07, 2010 04:19:47 PM
Had a spare 2 minutes and found some buttons and elastic laying around. Turned them into a bookmark. I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

I can recommend reading this book too!

3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / What does a zebra have in common with Morse code?? on: June 29, 2010 09:46:02 PM
Zebras and Morse code both appear in the childrens book 'The Eleventh Hour' by Graeme Base.

I made these two stencild t-shirts for a childrens book swap.

The first is a morse code message saying; Today a reader tomorrow a leader.

The zebra in the book is dressed as a punk so I thought I would do the same. I used plaited embroidery thread for his tail.

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / When in doubt for a gift go 'Star Wars' on: June 22, 2010 04:06:54 AM
Last Christmas I made everyone in my office tote bags, but one girl just isn't the tote bag type so I made these Star Wars tree decorations for her. I laughed when she turned them into a mobile for her baby son Grin

The whole gang

and finally.......

the big battle

I had a LOT of fun making these I learned a lot about Star Wars too!

I got some inspiration form http://www.makeandtakes.com/star-wars-felt-finger-puppets but took it a bit further.
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Funky 70's floral sheet into Funky 70's floral bag on: August 16, 2009 09:29:06 PM
Could not resist this orange sheet in the thrift shop (I actually got 2 for $4). The first thing I have made from it is this bag (lined with an old plain white sheet).

I think I'll have to make a few more, it was a queen size sheet  Wink
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / A new bag for Kinder (Daycare) on: June 11, 2009 03:52:16 AM
A quick drawstring bag with truck applique made for a friend's little one starting Kinder.

Laid flat.


Hope you like it  Smiley
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Beach House for T on: June 10, 2009 03:53:49 AM
Rummaging through my Mums old patterns I came across the inspiration for this little beach house. The pattern was for a Gingerbread house with gingerbread people, Mum sent away to America for the pattern in the late 70's. I changed the size, theme and method of construction to suit what I wanted. I also added a roll up mat which is the sand and sea. This was a gift for my Niece's 1st birthday, she loved it  Cheesy

Now I have to get into sorting the other classic 70's patterns.
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Little Echidna and Wombat feet onesies on: April 22, 2009 04:17:12 AM
These are my first attempt at freezer paper stencils. I can say it's so easy and the results are great, now I'm addicted  Roll Eyes
The paint is really purple but hard to see in my dodgy pics.
I hope that you like what you see. Happy crafting!
9  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / A quilt from Oz on: January 19, 2009 02:05:57 AM
This is my first post and first quilt so here goes........ I made this for an Australian friends baby who was born in Sweden. I'm no super quilter but I did enjoy the process (except ironing and pinning) and I think I'll give it another go.

10  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Fashion show fundraising on: January 06, 2009 09:09:56 PM
A great way of fundraising for charity groups is to hold a refashioned fashion show. A local charity who also run an op-shop (thrift store) gathered together clever crafters to refashion items from the store. The result was lots of money raised and a fun night for all involved. Next year we're thinking of auctioning the garments also. Cheesy
