21  Sock Elephant Mark 2 (and another giraffe), and a cow - Just added in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by ebygomm on: January 20, 2012 12:44:03 PM
Completed my second sock elephant this week along with my third giraffe. Elephant still requires a little work I feel, I'm not quite happy with the neck area. The giraffe I still love, although I've used the last pair of giraffe socks so he my be the last  Sad

They're gifts for two little girls from the same family so get to stay together.

22  Re: Danish Christmas Hearts - including printable template (Updated) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by ebygomm on: December 27, 2011 02:31:09 PM
I accidentally shrunk the template when printing out some designs this year, ended up with small hearts and teeny tiny hearts. They're super cute but tricky to weave.

23  Ipad covers in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ebygomm on: December 26, 2011 01:59:59 AM
Completed some ipad covers for Christmas gifts on Friday night (last minute as ever). Fairly pleased with how they turned out and relieved to find that come Christmas morning an ipad did fit inside (I had no way of checking beforehand).

I actually started out following a tutorial on the web but I wasn't happy with the end result so I started over and sort of combined bits from a few different tutorials. Outer covers are cotton, inner lining is fleece.

24  Homemade Christmas Wreath in Winter Holidays by ebygomm on: December 18, 2011 11:19:15 AM
Just finished my Christmas wreath for this year, I also made one for my parents. I used pipe lagging for the wreath form, wrapped entirely in jute twine, added some ivy and felt embellishments. Fairly pleased with how they've turned out, as always I've made them in more of a rush than I would have liked  Smiley

26  Tote bag for a toddler in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ebygomm on: May 28, 2011 02:16:46 PM
My niece turns 2 on Tuesday and loves carrying bags round with her so I thought I'd make her one of her very own that was more suitable for someone of her stature. She's not the most discerning customer so I thought I'd experiment a little with my own design. Fairly pleased with how it turned out. Fully lined with internal pouch, outer fabric is from ikea, lining is a brushed cotton pillowcase. No seams showing and no hand sewing required - result!   Smiley

27  Norwegian Hut (Innerdalen Gammelhytter) in Gingerbread in CHALLENGE 58 ENTRIES by ebygomm on: January 08, 2011 12:03:56 PM

I've wanted to make a gingerbread house for a long time, but it's one of those things I've never got round to so when I saw the competition I thought that was a good motivator to get it done.

I had quite a few ideas but wanted to avoid anything that involved covering up the gingerbread entirely, I wanted something nearer a traditional gingerbread house. We holidayed in Norway last year and it came to me that one of the huts we stayed in would make a great Gingerbread house. So that was it. The hut is entirely edible and can be eaten as is, no need to pick out savoury bits or bubble gum and the like, it's all sweet stuff.

The Inspiration

350g plain flour
1.5 tsp ground ginger
1.5 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp bicarb of soda
100g butter, chilled
175g muscovado sugar
1 egg
2 Tbsp golden syrup

First batch of gingerbread

One box matchmaker chocolates
One packet Hazelnut wafers
Royal Icing
Dessicated Coconut
Melted Chocolate
Ground Almonds
Edible Rice Paper
Food Colouring (copious amounts!)

Fairly pleased with the results, although i'm itching to make another as I learnt so much making this one and think I could do a much improved one now.

28  Drawstring Gift Bag - Tea Towel fashion :-) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ebygomm on: January 01, 2011 09:04:37 AM

I'd read about the Green Grocery Bag gift challenge on Sew Mama Sew and when I found out that to send gifts abroad by courier they needed to be inspected on collection I realised this was the perfect opportunity to sew some reuseable bags to be used in place of standard  gift wrap.

Grocery bags were going to be overkill for the small gifts I was sending and I didn't have a whole lot of time so drawstring pouches looked like the best idea. I'm fairly new to this whole sewing lark and I don't have a huge stash of fabric. I wanted something colourful that could pass for Christmas'sy but that could be used all year round and then I remembered I'd bought a set of tea towels ridiculously cheap a couple of weeks earlier and they'd be perfect. So I set about refashioning them into drawstring bags. See how here

Once I'd sussed the design, each bag took about 15 minutes, I made 9 bags in total from 4 teatowels and all for less than the cost of a roll of giftwrap :-)

Most of the bags had box corners, but I left some flat depending on the gift being wrapped

I love felt food

I'm in the process of making a bag of groceries for my niece

So far I have bread, egg, carrots and a banana.

The slices of cake look great.

30  Re: 2011 What is everyone planning to make for Christmas? in Winter Holidays by ebygomm on: December 29, 2010 05:54:31 AM
Well I didn't get everything on my list done, but happy with what I achieved and nobody was left presentless.

Finished the last present midday Christmas Eve. A doorstop for my mum

Also found time to make gift bags instead of wrapping paper
