31  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / fabric origami; 'yuki' basket style bag on: December 09, 2014 10:56:11 AM

This bag is made from 2 fat quarters sewn back to back (to make one flat square of fabric - if you had something with an attractive wrong side you could just use that), which is them folded into shape with no structural sewing to hold it in place! It's a take on a traditional japanese style of origami with fabric, so i used thick silks with weaves that reminded me of kimono designs.  I really enjoyed this, i was very sceptical if it would work so was really pleased that the basket held it's shape... Even once out was full of a pamper kit for my mum (champage, nice bath stuff, book... So fairly heavy, and the basket carried them easily, just by holding the handle in one hand).
I also made some cover buttons.with left over scraps and added those to put on the finishing touch, and i used one to hold the two handles together to maker carrying easier, but if you wanted to be able to reuse the fabric you could skip that, it isn't really necessary.
The side flaps that are shown down in the picture can be folded up to cover the contents, the other side of them is the same as the

35  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / 'junker Jane' style art doll; Sea Soaked Sally on: December 04, 2014 05:08:38 PM

I wanted this little one to look like she'd been washed up on a beach. Took inspiration from Tim Burton illustrations & junker Jane dolls. Head/arms/legs are hand dyed linen, body is crayon tinted cotton. then i soaked her repeatedly in salt water  :-)
36  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / 24 little parcels; an advent calander on: December 04, 2014 11:42:53 AM
I collected 24 little silly gifts, and individualy wrapped them to make this advent calander...
I used all sorts of bits of stash paper & ribbon/string to wrap and number each one, some in paper, some in tissue, a couple in fabric - and different lettering & number stamps to lable them - within a sort of shabby chic craft paper with green, red & gold highlights theme

Then i presented them in a box :.an old hinge lid type shoe box, which i covered in brown paper so that the lid still worked, and lined with gold tissue. Then i 'closed' it with an assortment of different twines, and left it to be discovered
37  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / small gift & candy sleighs on: December 04, 2014 11:22:37 AM

I saw candy sleighs on pinterest, and tonight it wad a great way too parcel small gifts, s if they are sitting on the back of santa's sled. I wrapped the gifts in craft paper first, used glue dots (like for mounting photos) to secure the construction - and i get to my parents they will sir in three fake snow at the base of their tree
38  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / rainbow cake topper, and left over beads... my first clay work! on: December 02, 2014 08:13:04 PM

I realise this is crazy simple compared to what you guys do, but i had fun and was happy with the out come; a rainbow cake topper for my friends rainbow theme party

I messed up my first go, all the colours got smooshed together... So i used the messed up clay to make some beads too

Can't think what I'd do with them since they are rather irregular sizes! Oh well, stash them and I'll find a use sooner or later i guess
39  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / monkeying about on: December 02, 2014 06:51:12 PM

A friend was in a production of Inherit the Wind (a play about the score monkey trial) so i made this first night card; it's pretty simple negative space using an old copy of a dawkins book on evolutionary history, embroidered and layered onto card. But I was pleased with the effect  :-)
40  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / The Hermione Award on: December 02, 2014 06:38:30 PM

I designed this to look like a medal or award plaque - hermione in profile done in stem stitch (and lettering the same)... And the filigree thingy boarder is my first go at feather stitch  :-)

It I'd to honour the recipient for being (like hermione) an insufferable know it all... A fine compliment indeed and well worthy of recognition
