271  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Knitted Boots My Sister Made Me !!!!!!!! on: February 23, 2006 08:51:05 AM
Pudruff you are one lucky girl.  I need a sister.  I absolutely love those mukluks.  Your sister did a really great job.  Is she a craftster member?  If not, she should be.  And yes, I know what you mean about buying way more crafting supplies than you can ever use.  She who dies with the most - wins.

What a cute bag!  I love how the 3 knit stitches seem to continue and flow right into forming the handles even though you knit them separately.  Great slippers on your website - I just wish it was a knit pattern because I can't crochet.

I'm just getting back from a week away and I can't believe how much I missed Craftster!  I was going through withdrawal.  Love the new postings - Pudruff, your pink brocade purse is beautiful.  I love how you used the two fabrics and the bead trim.  Sorry you were home sick on Valentine's Day.
threadjunkie, I love your cord reversible bag - you've given me a great idea for one of my bag a month projects - probably for summer.  I'd better get working on my February bag.  It'll have to be something easy because there are only 10 days left. 
Speaking of bags, the airlines lost one of my bags so I'm anxiously waiting for a phone call.  I really hope they find it.

meanbean, I love the "mod" fabric you used for your bag.  My grandmother had drapes with the same design (or at least very close).  I used to lie on her couch looking at the design and daydreaming for hours.  I'd love to see some of the other bags you made.
Okay, just checked out more of your bags on etsy - very cute!

ohYEONG!!, your purse is gorgeous.  I love the colour choices you made in your magazine strips and your obvious attention to detail.  I'm going to attempt this for my February project in the Bag a Month Craftalong.  Also I noticed you said this is your first post.  I hope you post more of your projects - I'd love to see them.

Here's the wine bottle bag tut, Pudruff:
All you need is a piece of fabric about 18 inches high and 14 inches wide.  Make the pom pom tie and enclose it in the side seam at the height where you want it to tie.  Because the fleece fabric is so thick, it was just easier to sew the bottom straight across.  When you insert the wine bottle, it flattens the bottom of the bag and stands upright.  Then I just turned down the top and hand stitched it to the inside of the bag.
The pom pom ties are easy.  Knit an I-cord (3 stitches across) about 12 to 13 inches long - or you could just braid some yarn in colours to match the bag fabric.  To make pom poms, cut two cardboard circles the same diameter as you want your finished pom pom to be. Cut a hole in the centre of each so it looks like a donut.  Hold the 2 pieces of cardboard together and feed the yarn through the centre of the cardboard with a needle (I used about 6 yards of yarn) then over the outside edge, again and again until you can't get the needle through the centre anymore.   Cut the yarn between the 2 outside edges of cardboard.  Using a 10 inch piece of the same yarn, slip it between the cardboard circles and tie it tightly a couple of times.  Cut the cardboard away and fluff out your pom pom.  Then attach it to the I-cord with the dangling thread.
Every bottle of wine deserves a fake fur coat.

Pudruff, I love your bill box.  It makes me want to do something with buttons!  Here's one I made with postage stamps on the lid covered with clear laminating sheets and a piece of wallpaper on the bottom.

This is the first Craftalong I've joined.  I made 3 wine bottle gift bags for my January project.  Pretty simple, but this way I can work my way up to something a little more challenging each month.  Love the black crochet bag, Aneesah and Fort Loop, the monster bag is amazing.  Thanks to Craftster for making uploading photos so easy.
