1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Hobbit costume! Finished! *pic overload* on: October 16, 2011 06:56:26 AM
Nicely done!

I just made a couple cloaks from the alleycatscratch tutorial as well.  I used a grey wool/poly blend that was an absolute dream to work with.  I can't wait til Halloween!!

Thank you all so much!  There have been fights over who gets to sit in it already.  I think my couch feels neglected.  Tongue

craftylittlemonkey- Cost Plus World Market always has papasan chairs, and I think you can order online if you don't have one near you!  Craigslist has them a lot around here too!

Thanks for all the nice comments!!

Julibooli- That's a great idea, I think I'll try that!

I gave my papasan a makeover!  I used all cotton scraps and had no real plan.  The smallest block is less than 1"x1" and the largest is about 8"x4".  I gave it a pocket back that I stitched closed with big stitches for now so I can take it off to clean it.  I will probably give it buttons and buttonholes on the backside someday, but I was just too excited to test it out  Tongue 

Much more eye-catching than the boring black cushion it has had for the last 10 yrs!  This is my first "Home Sweet Home" post, I'd love to hear what you think!

I just whipped up a shirt version of this using a lightweight knit - so cute!  Only took about 20 minutes and I'm already wearing it! Thanks for the tut!

So I usually stick with sewing, but I broke my machine.  Cry  I can't not make things, so I whipped up this little guy!  I think he needs a blue hoodie then I'm sending him off to a friend's kid in Sheboygan.  I made up the pattern as I went along, so I'd love to hear what you think!   Thanks for looking!

Thanks for all the input!

Yes I did make the fabric buttons!  I'm seriously addicted to fabric buttons now.  If anyone wants to know more about the bag, I posted a blog about it!  My blog link is below in my signature, I just didn't want to retype the whole thing  Grin

The inner flap closes with a magnet snap. 
I'm going to attempt this again soon I hope, when I do I will try to take pics along the way.  I've tried writing tutorials before and I pretty much suck at it... but I'll try!

I've been eyeing this fabric FOREVER and finally picked some up!  I've been craving a bag that wasn't messenger style since that's all I own these days.  I made this without a pattern, so I'm so glad it turned out exactly like the idea in my head!  I'd love to hear what you think!

It is fully lined with natural cotton canvas, with a hidden flap inside for closure.  I'm lovin the knotted strap and antiqued brass hardware too.  I'm also officially obsessed with fabric buttons now.
