61  some soaps i made in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by sin esperanza on: May 07, 2007 06:16:23 PM

I've been lurking for a while and figured it was time to post some of what I'd learnt... so here are some soaps i made!

coffee and chocolate for flavour (and colour) with grounds for exfoliation in mocca-shape!

orange and lemon for flavour, carrot pulp for colour and dried lemon rind for exfoliation

lemongrass and ginger flavour with turmeric for your skin

Hope you like them, I enjoyed making them!

62  1930's old lady dress recon in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sin esperanza on: May 07, 2007 05:55:56 PM

I found this hideously ugly dress at an op shop.  It was about 10 sizes too big for me and one of those old granny dresses that are shapeless and uninteresting.  But it had nice, stretchy fabric and I was getting a bag full of clothes for $5. 

So...  I cut off the sleeves, opened up the buttons up the front and made a v-collar, and sewed it to fit my size... voila!

thanks for looking!

63  My first flamenco skirt! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by sin esperanza on: May 07, 2007 05:39:37 PM

This is a flamenco skirt I made with the instructions from sinnimaria's tutorial (on the tutes list).  Used orange fabric with black polka dots for the inner flounce, not sure if the pictures show that, sorry!

Oh and I wasn't sure if I'd cut it properly so I cheated and made a drawstring waistband rather than putting in a zip!

sorry about the crappy photos, One day i'll master the art of taking photos in the mirror!

64  Curl up with a good book! in CHALLENGE 18 ENTRIES by sin esperanza on: May 06, 2007 04:52:29 AM

When I saw this challenge I knew exactly what I wanted to do!  I wanted to use the felt I'd been donated to make a cover for my hot water bottle.  I love books in general and Alice in wonderland and through the looking glass in particular.  So curling up with a good book and being warm seemed the logical thing to do!

This is my first challenge and I've just bought a sewing machine, so the first photo is of my beautiful new friends!

This is how the book looks (the image is from the original illustrations for the book)

It standing up (there is carboard on the inside reinforcing the spine and the pages of the book)

Page detail (because I thought it was a cute idea)

Close up of alice (I used fabric glue to stick the pieces... my eternal admiration to people who actually sew applique... maybe once I'm better!)

View of the top with the zip (my first zip!) open and my hottie showing

Me curled up on my bed with my book

Hope you like it, I enjoyed making it and am looking forward to curling up with it (it's the beginning of winter here in NZ!)
