41  Felted Skull Keyring in Knitting: Completed Projects by queenofdiy on: June 12, 2007 01:57:04 AM
I'm not really a knitter as such.  The most knitting I've done is a beanie  Tongue

I really loved this project when I saw it and it didn't look too complicated.  The pattern is here if anyone is interested:  http://knituition.blogspot.com/2007/05/skully-keychain.html (apologies if this project has been done before and is old).  I loved how it turned out and covered up my poor skills in increasing  Roll Eyes

This first picture shows before felting:


And an after shot to show size:

Etsy is probably your best bet.  Here is another Etsy shop who does really nice custom felted dogs:


An alternative would be a print (printed on photo paper).  Here is a Photoshopped picture that looks like it is a print on canvas:

43  A wallet for a swap - DON'T LOOK Anakarina in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by queenofdiy on: June 01, 2007 02:49:01 PM
I made this wallet as a personal swap (for a ken doll - I plan to make Ken doll patterns because poor Ken doesn't have very many free sewing patterns online and I plan to change that!!).  So, anakarina, don't look any further.

The pictures don't show the colour properly.  The fabric looks quite green in the picture but it is actually a turquoise blue colour.  The wallet is 4 x 4 inches and has a clear ID pocket (that's the one with the pink binding) as well as a pocket for cards/cash (the floral binding) and a zippered coin pouch.  Velcro holds the wallet closed.



Thanks for looking!!

44  Skull Luggage and Accessories in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by queenofdiy on: May 28, 2007 05:15:48 PM
I was inspired by this post:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=156560.0

I had my day all planned yesterday.  I was going to make my son a nice luggage bag to take on a camp he was going on today.  Then....as all well planned days go.....my day was turned completely upside down and only got the bag cut out.  So I was up until midnight making the bag and accessories.

This first picture shows the luggage empty.  The outer has heavy iron on interfacing and the lining, a medium weight interfacing.  The lining was a plain grey colour to complement the skulls on the outer fabric.  I was a bit skeptical about the fabric at first because it is flanelette (which is traditionally pyjama fabric) but the fabric worked beautifully with the iron on interfacing.  It doesn't make the fabric look wrinkled at all. 

This second picture shows the luggage when full.  It has a side pocket (like Zelda.Suicide's) and piping detail.  I made the piping myself as the fabric store didn't have grey colour.  That was a PITA!!!

Side view:

Zipper pull detail:

The kids also need to take a mess kit (plate, bowl, cup, cultery etc.), so I made a lined drawstring bag to keep it all together:

Then they need something to keep the huge amount of toiletries that were required for the camp (toothbrush, toothpaste etc. but also sunscreen, aeroguard etc. etc.).  The list was huge so I had to make a huge bag to fit it all in:

Again, zipper detail on the toiletries bag:

Phew....all this.....and the camp is only overnight!!  Plus they needed a sleeping bag and pillow.  Well, it is the Great Aussie Bush Camp so they will get muddy, dirty and wet.  Yay.  I needed to take photos before he went.  Goodness knows what colour the bag will come back.  Tongue

Thanks for looking  Grin

45  Drawstring Bags for Fairy Party in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by queenofdiy on: May 26, 2007 12:06:41 AM
I made these little bags for a friend of mine who has an extreme girly girl.  The little girly girl soon to be 5 yo doesn't want a pinata as "someone might get hurt" and doesn't want sack races as "someone might fall over and hurt themselves".  So.....I suggested colouring in little fairy bags which could double as their favour bags to take home.  I guess no-one will get hurt doing this activity, except if things turn nasty and markers start getting thrown (hehehe)  So, for me, this was a pretty darn good idea as I am not a girly girl myself - just practical  Grin 

So, the next day I made 20 of these little cuties.  They are about 6" high x 4" wide (the size of a photo).  The girls are going to colour them with fabric markers to save the trouble and mess of paint (I can hear the girls now....."eewwww, messy paint").  I have heard from my friend that they are divine and little miss girly girl simply adores them.  So, my job is done:

BTW, with the stack of bags, some are facing one way and some another.  They only have a drawstring on one end.  It just looks odd the way I have stacked them.

46  Photo Handbag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by queenofdiy on: May 18, 2007 04:59:17 PM
I made this bag a while ago but I have only just busted out the digi cam to take photos.  I made the pattern myself which has a gusset that narrows at the top and widens at the bottom.  There is a zipper at the top to close the bag.

47  Pleated Drawstring Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by queenofdiy on: May 18, 2007 04:33:00 PM
I copied this bag from a friend from work.  She uses it all the time and pins it to her skirt when she doesn't have pockets.  I am still trying to tweak the dimensions and I will post another picture when I have the dimensions right.  I like the proportions of the first bag but it is not wide enough.  I can only just get my hand in, so I will keep this as a gift for a little girl.  The second one, is too wide therefore making the bag too dumpy.  Mmmm, this sounds like the story of goldilocks and the three bears.  I just need to make one that is just right.  Cheesy

48  Rainy Day project for kids in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by queenofdiy on: May 18, 2007 04:27:39 PM
The kids were bored.  They wanted to go outside but it was raining.  So, I got them to pick a black and white outline picture, similar to what you would find in a colouring book.  I printed it on the fabric then made a bag.  While I was making the bag, I got the kids to choose their lining fabric.  The kids then coloured it with crayon.  After they had finished, I ironed the design to set the crayon.  They love it!!! And yes, I have boys.  Believe it or not, boys like bags too - to collect rocks, keep their little army men, football trading cards and general little "stuff".

Firstly, my 5 year old's:


And, my 8 year old's:

49  Kids Craft project bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by queenofdiy on: May 18, 2007 04:21:24 PM
I have to sew 15 of these for a kids craft - for tomorrow - ahhh, I better get cracking.  I printed on the fabric then made the bag.  It is lined with a sheep print flanelette (nice and soft!).  All the kids need to do is to glue the sherpa fabric on (pre cut), glue the eyes on and colour the nose with crayon.  The eyes are those boggly ones which move around.  It's hard to tell from the photo.  The kids are pre school age so it's pretty simple. The bags are 6" square.

The dissection of this pattern and measurements posted in this thread have been removed at the request of the creator of this pattern. Please purchase her pattern if you'd like to know how it's made. Some people make their living creating patterns and it's hard work to do this and they deserve to be compensated for this. Thanks for understanding!

Ooops.  So sorry  Embarrassed  I didn't mean to cause any harm.  The measurements for the final bag are on her website and there is a 25 minute video showing how it is made and she gives measurements as she goes so I didn't think it would be a problem  Tongue  Sorry again.

Anway, on a lighter note, I made one last night but I changed it by making the lining slightly larger so it appears that it has a binding at the top.  I also would change the pattern significantly.  I guess it is designed for people who prefer easier construction methods given the title of the patterns:
