1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Owl backpack on: June 17, 2012 01:24:15 PM
This owl backpack is for my nature loving son's 9th birthday.  It's made from two pairs of pants, a sweater scrap, and straps taken from an old bag.  The bags at http://thaihandmadecrafts.com were my inspiration.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / ruffled baby bloomers on: June 08, 2012 08:12:28 AM
I made this for my daughter's first birthday.  I took fabric squares from a defunct WIP and sewed them into ruffles.  I then attached the ruffles to a pair of bloomers.  I only had red and black thread in the house, so I had to do some creative sewing to hide the ugly colors.  

Here are the bloomers I used for the base.

3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Anthropologie inspired swap? on: March 16, 2012 07:17:29 PM
Awhile back there was an Anthropologie inspired swap.  Anyone interested in another?
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / GRIMM themed Teesha Moore laptop sleeve on: March 11, 2012 11:58:57 AM
I made this laptop sleeve for AMYoung3 GRIMM/fairy tale swap.  I forgot to take pictures, but she was kind enough to let me use hers.  This is my first Teesha Moore project.  I made a lot of mistakes, but I also learned a lot.  My next Teesha project will be cowboy themed pillow for my sister.

Aunt Marie's trailer.

Ceremonial bear claw from the Bears Will Be Bears episode.

Blutbad snack.  This doesn't relate to an episode.  I just thought it was kinda cute.

Siegbarste gift, a poison used to kill ogres from the Game Ogre episode.  This one is my favorite.

The sleeve also has a few other interesting patches, but I don't have pictures.  One on the upper left has two silver toad charms attached.  Those are from the Lonelyhearts episode.  The Ziegevolk (goat-creature) grows toads in his garden and eats them.  The other, right below it, says Tempus fugit.  This means time flies in latin.  It was inscribed on the front of an abandoned building where Monroe, the clockmaker, was attacked.  From the Of Mouse and Man episode.  The last is a Reaper patch with a scythe. 

This cuff is made of puka shells and is inspired by the Organ Grinder episode.  I really wanted it to be part of the bag, but it just didn't fit.
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / How I Met Your Mother Swap? on: July 11, 2011 01:05:16 PM

Anyone interested in a How I Met Your Mother swap?
6  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / felted flower purse & necklace on: January 01, 2011 05:27:55 AM
Here is my purse and coordinating necklace.  The purse has a zipper down the side.  The gray wool was wet felted over a resist and the flowers, vines, and leaves were mostly needle felted with a little wet felting.

Please forgive the poor quality of my cell phone camera.
