If you're trying for the first time I guess all I can say is try a light color so if there are some 'not so perfect' spots it wont contrast with the white styro foam.

30 grams is enough. I dont really know how you buy yearn there but here its per gram!

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Baker girl Christmas Wreath on: November 22, 2010 10:32:34 AM
This is my Baker girl Christmas Wreath

I was looking for something a little less Santa Claus and little bit more "me & my friends". I always cook with and for my friends, so this is how it came out.

It was made out of a Styrofoam wreath, covered in yarn, and some baker tools (toys, actually).

5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Felt Christmas Stockings (with templates) on: November 25, 2009 12:42:06 PM
These are my first Christmas stockings ever!

I guess they're ok...

I also got the template for download, just in case you wanna try it too.

Here's the link: http://www.interney.net/blogs/media/blogs/comofaz/bota.pdf

The first step is to cut the mold and hold the felt with pins.

This template does the left for the seam, then time to cut, leave a niece. There are two parts, ok?

If it helps, to sew all the same size, select the template with a chalk. So you will be able to follow the brand's time to sew.

Cut 2 strips of about 7 cm in height, with the same width of the boot, felt or other color. Secure with a pin, edge with edge, on top of parts of the boot. To stay on the sweet, perfect place both boots -heel to heel

Pass the seam on top, one piece at a time.

Now join the two pieces, front with front, ie, with colored ribbons out.

Now the trick: before moving the seam that will close the boot, turn the colored bands inside. The seam will be hidden on the back of the fold.

This is also the time to hold a strip of felt, to serve as a hanging. It will stay on top, on the same side of the heel slightly raised. The strip is in the middle of the "sandwich" between the two parts.

Now yes the piece is ready to go to the machine! You will pass in the seam all around, but not at the top.

Now just turn to the right.

Thanks Cheesy

I guess felt is a little bit too thick for this... That's probably what happened but you should try again with a bigger ball... Dont give up!  Smiley

I gave a  try to the fake patchwork ornaments...

They're pretty easy to make. Styrofoam balls and fabric...

I'm very pleased with the results. Smiley

This is my first tote ever...

Putting the lining together was a REAL pain. Hope it gets easier next time!

I have a full pic tute for it but it's in portuguese only Sad

That's it! No more plastic bags in the super market for me! Cheesy

For a very stylish mom!

Love the fact that it doesn't look like a regular diaper bag. Props!

Thank you!

I've seen some other lunch bags projects and they have a button at the top (so you can drop the clothespin).  I may try it next time.
