1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Cushion cover from off cuts on: July 28, 2008 07:01:13 AM
The pink fabric is from an old sheet, that was then turned into a pillow case and now -- nearing the end of its life -- into a cushion cover.
The wadding is part of an old pillow.
The swatches are all off cuts from numerous past projects and were hand appliqued on. Nice and bright for the summer!

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Christmas "cards" on: October 15, 2007 01:59:50 PM
After running low on card ideas and getting a bit depressed that they only get thrown away afterwards, I thought I'd send out little felt hearts for people to hang on trees. The "Merry Christmas" labels are the sew-on labels you get for school uniforms, but were only a couple of pounds for about 30. Anyway, hearts developed into trees, into crochet etc. I thought I'd attach a card luggage label for the message and pop them in an envelope.

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Knit fuscia bag on: August 11, 2007 07:06:31 AM
I bought these round plastic handles in Newtown and wasn't sure how to use them. The fuscia is a shameless rip of a Lulu Guiness bag.

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Little Bird Weekend Bag on: January 05, 2007 01:30:01 PM
Here's a weekend bag made out of the offcuts of a jacket (the grey wool) and small amounts of fabric salvaged from making a skirt (the birds and flowers). It's lined with the offcuts of the lining of the jacket (grey satin). It has a concealed zip along the top edge.

It fits a lot of clothes and is a handy size, but the sides just a little too soft -- it shows the bumps too obviously!

The handles are rope covered by the fabric and the little bird is cut out from the fabric and stitched on.
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Shoe bags -- every girl needs them. on: June 17, 2006 08:51:57 AM
Not much skill for these, but I thought that I'd post them as an idea since anyway.

Make them out of velvet or thick corduroy with a thick piece of ribbon and you'll feel *super* glamorous. It also keeps the dust off and uses less space than tatty shoe boxes (also great for travelling -- no more old carrier bags for me! Cheesy).

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / iPod cover -- template on: April 29, 2006 09:54:15 AM
Here's a template and tutorial for an iPod cover, made from paper and sticky backed plastic. It's for the 3rd generation iPod (i.e. the one prior to the video ones). Sorry if it's already obsolete/hard to understand/useless.

It has a paper base, sticky backed plastic (or tape) outer, a plastic protected screen window and scroll wheel hole.

It's kind of similar to happybeenz's funky starburst ipod case and heatherxxll's iPod packing tape/paper cozy.

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / "sun + rain = rainbow" wrist bag on: April 28, 2006 01:19:08 PM
Following the very useful feedback at the topic Charlie's Rainbow and Butterflies Bag, I decided to dedicate a whole wrist bag to a rainbow. This is the result. The rainbow is repeated on both sides and the 'rain' doubles as the wrist strap.

8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Chrysler Building Birthday Card on: April 28, 2006 06:28:14 AM
Utilising trusty old grease-proof paper, a Dymo letterer and embroidery silks.

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Canvas bags on: April 27, 2006 02:19:30 PM
Here are two canvas bags that I'm thinking of trying to sell. The images were stencilled on in fabric paint.

I have lots more designs that I'd like to make, but am just waiting for some more fabric.
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Charlie's Rainbow and Butterflies Bag on: April 27, 2006 02:16:13 PM
This is a shoulder bag made for my friend Charlie. She stated that she liked rainbows, butterflies and diamanté. She also said that she liked 1960s Spanish donkeys wearing straw hats and She-Ra, so I took the easy option...

The bag is made from blue cord (that used to be a skirt), the rainbow from various pieces of needle cord, felt and cotton and opens to a zipped pocket. The diamantés were taken from hairclips and superglued on. Not graceful, but effective. I hope they stick. The lining is silver fabric (not shown).
