Here is a great website with free patterns and instructions.  It isn't tea-length, but it might give you some ideas!

Ok, went back and fixed post, no clicking "whew"  The furniture was from Big Lots.  They had it on sale for 9.99.

I saw on television a woman who makes her own cookie cutters.  Basically, you take sheet copper, cut a strip, an bend it into your desired shape.  find a picture of Yoda that has a descriptive outline, transfer it onto heavy cardboard, and bend your thin copper strip around it.  You could weld it, or add a handle, but I think you could make it work without welding.  Here is a website for inspiration, so you can see what I am talking about.

Thanks!  I saw it done here at craftster by someone else, but a little different.  I also saw where someone made charms that looked like all of her friends except cartoons, on a different website.  (don't remember where exactly)  They were my inspiration.  I used a free font called "zit cream" from 1001 free fonts.

The words I used are:
Love
Joy
Courage
Beauty
Life
Wealth
Good Luck
Peace
Friendship
Happiness
Health
Prosperity

but you could do anything!

Made a set of twelve, because you can never find a set of twelve!!  The charms are made out of shrinky-dink plastic that I wrote twelve words on.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My take on the men's shirt and tie purse...VERY PREPPY on: February 28, 2005 10:32:03 AM
I used two men's shirts and two ties from goodwill to make this purse.
Front of purse was front of one shirt with pocket and button placket.

Back of purse was back of shirt.

Lining of purse was the other shirt.  The closure part was made of two cuffs.  I cut the bottom of the bag from the part that had the little horse emblem for a cute detail.

Handles, one side is tie fabric and one side is shirt fabric.  I topstiched on the handles.

I hope the photos show up, I made this Barbie doll house and furniture for my four year old daughter after finding the really cute Tiki bar set.  I looked for cool Barbie doll houses, but didn't like them, or the one I really liked was over $100!  So, this is a really cheap way to make one.  Just make sure the shelf is tall enough for barbie to stand up in.  You could make it as tall as you wanted, just stack on more shelves!

House is made from a plastic shelf, the back is foam core board with scrap book paper glued on.  I added Tiki themed stickers for top floor.

Close up of second story, I hot glued fleece to the shelf to make the carpet.

Set 'em up Ken!

Bedroom furniture.  Bed is a cereal box with a cardboard headboard, padded and covered with fabric, hot-glued on. NO SEWING!
Chaise lounge in bedroom.  Another box, cardboard back, covered in fabric and hot glued.  Pillow is a toilet paper roll cut down and stuffed, feet of chaise lounge are beads hot-glued on.

Living room furniture made from Mac n cheese boxes, covered in fabric and hot glued.  Coffee table is jar lid covered in daisy fabric, hot glued onto a shampoo bottle lid.

Super easy to make bathtub for Barbie!  Just cut the top off of the plastic Kitty litter container.

Hope you enjoyed the tour!!
