11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / spaghetti friend (cute gift for a baby) on: January 12, 2004 11:57:45 PM
I made this for the son of my old history teacher, with some fabric leftovers, and dacron form an old pillow... I hope, that at least the pictures are self explaining (my english is rustier than I tought)...

You need:
Scrapes of cotton fabric, some dacron(the stuffing thing), some left over ribbon, a little bell, fabric paint, some yarn, a small piece of cardboard.

Cut a rectangle 30 cm long 6 cm wide.

Roll some yarn in a 3 cm wide piece carboard to get 6 cm long strips.

Distribute the yarn strips to make the hair on one of the ends of your rectangle, fold in half and machine sew (the hair should be sewn on whats gonna be the inside of the spaghetti friend)

Then the inside out, stuff,

sew the other end, make a bow, sew the bell,

paint a face,

and voila, an spaghetti friend

The name is tacky, but those make great gifts for babys, my brother had one as a baby and he loved it so much my mom made one for each of his little baby friends cuz they were fighting over it (one year old fighting over a toy, mmmm)

use those tiny little soap leftovers (the ones you attach to new soaps cuz they are to small to wash youself) instead of tailors' chalk... it works great...
13  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / yet another gift bag on: January 09, 2004 03:39:50 PM
You need:  
a glue stick
an old paper bag with a logo (from a store, a gift bag, super market bag...)
some wrapping paper
thick ribbon
tape and tissue paper


You need a piece of the wrapping paper big enough to cover the logo on the bag, if you are like me (lazy that is) you can just eyeball the proportions, if not you can messure the face of the bag and cut the paper one cm smaller.. Then you just need to glue the wrapping paper onto the bag...

My bag had two handles so I just removed them to slide the ribbon trough the holes... Then you just have to make a pretty bow...

AND VOILA! a nice simple bag....

the best part is I reused the bag and the paper and the ribbon was a left over... This may have been to obvious/simple, but sometimes those are the best ideas...
