1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / African Patchwork on: December 07, 2012 03:54:49 PM
My son wanted something REALLY bright for his bed, so I bought some African Wax Print fabric and made this cover for him. Because the blocks are so big it only took me a week to finish.
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Nature Fairies on: September 20, 2012 08:54:21 PM
I made these fairies for our nature table using wooden dolls and decorating them with cotton and wool fabric and adding wool fleece for the hair.

I embroidered the item that they represent on the back of their capes. From left to right - strawberry, ladybeetle, cherry, clover, lavender and dandelion.

Awesome! I love the colours in the dresses.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Re: 6hrs + bed sheet = a new dress! on: July 29, 2012 02:47:51 AM
So awesome! And the skirt is big enough that you can sit on the floor with your little one without flashing your knickers!
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Nerdify - My Scifi Sewing Box on: June 13, 2012 07:24:40 PM
I bought this wooden sewing box at a second hand shop and decided it needed a makeover.
In high school my mum bought me the Encyclopaedia of Science Fiction, but it is sadly out of date now. I decided to use the cover illustrations of novels to decorate my sewing box with! I love how it turned out, and recognised quite a  few of the covers as books that I have read in the last 10 years or so. Are there any of your favourite novels featured on my sewing box?

Cute! Hope you know you can get massive fines for taking clothes from near Salvo bins!

Here in Canberra they are always complaining about the costs of taking items left outside the bins to the dump, so I figured I'm saving the Salvos some money!

Love!!  Did you hand sew or machine sew it together? How big is it?  It looks great and should last awhile  Grin

I sewed it all together by hand, it is about a metre across. I wanted it to cover most of the width of the hallway, it needn't have been quite so big.
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Free Jeans into Doormat on: May 28, 2012 09:07:49 PM
I picked up a bag of free jeans from next to a Salvo bin and decided they would make a perfect doormat!
I cut them into strips, plaited the strips and then sewed them together. It took me about 7 months as it was so boring.
It feels great underfoot and seems to be lasting well so far.

these are awesome! They look very realistic. And well done with the photos as well!
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Funky School Lunch Bag on: May 17, 2012 03:47:24 AM
I have been trawling the 'net trying to find a metal lunch box for my 5 yr old that doesn't have Twilight or Star Wars on it, but had no luck.
Instead, I made him this lunch bag with scraps from my stash. The bag has dark blue corduroy inside and bright red outside. I didn't have enough to do the top of the outside, so I added in a strip of patchwork cotton. The bag closes with a strip of velcro, and I put elastic in the 'short' side to pull the bag in a bit at the top.
It is just big enough for his thermos, a snack box some fruit. I can also put a plastic ice brick in the bottom if needed.

For the pattern I just traced around his old metal lunch box and winged it from there!
