1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Plastic bag ipod shuffle case on: June 28, 2010 12:43:41 AM
Thank you all for your kind comments. Unfortunately 20 minutes after I posted this, I was out listening to my ipod and didn't put this little purse back in my bag properly. It must have falled out and is now lost forever Cry
I will have to make a new one... Can you think of any improvements?
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Plastic bag ipod shuffle case on: June 26, 2010 03:24:31 AM
My ipod was getting battered around at the bottom of my handbag so I made this little purse to protect it.

I made the outside using recycled plastic bags which have been fused together to make a waterproof and getting-battered-about-in-my-handbag-proof material. I then appliqued on a detail I cut out from an old pillow case.
It was the first time I used a sew-on clasp frame. I like the added detail of the visible stitching.
I packed in plenty of fleecy material between the plastic bag material and the lining to give my ipod a cosy home.

That is ingenious! I love it!
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Christmas Chalet Tree Ornament with Tutorial Link on: December 16, 2009 04:43:50 PM

I made this Christmas tree ornament from recycled paper.
You can open up the roof to put sweets inside.

I realised,as I hung it on the tree to photograph, you can also cut a whole in the bottom and poke christmas lights through so it looks like the little house is lit up! (Do be careful not to leave the lights on for a long time unsupervised though to avoid any burning situations!)

I made a step-by-step tutorial, but as it's very photo-heavy I have put a link on my blog: http://pretty-green-blog.blogspot.com/2009/12/christmas-chalet-ornament-and-tutorial.html

I would love to see if anyone makes this.
I think a whole garland would look great. I hope someone has less work than I do at the moment and will make one for me to see!

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Sleepy Cat Upcycled Ipod Cosy on: September 09, 2009 07:55:01 AM

It was my mum's birthday last week and I needed a present which would post easily. I heard she was getting an ipod (she's more technically up to date than I am now!) so I thought a little cosy to protect it on the move would be a nice thing to make. We have two grey cats at home who she spoils so I used them as inspiration.

I made it using only reused materials. The spotty lining was given to me by a lovely friend who was having a sort through her fabric stash and the grey felt came from a jumper which was accidentally put on a hot wash.

For once I actually remembered to take some in progress shots however I got a bit click happy and I don't want to overload you here! If you want to see all the photos visit my blog: http://pretty-green-blog.blogspot.com/2009/09/sleepy-cat-ipod-cosy.html

This little patch is a pocket for storing the headphones in!

Oh yes that is a hand-sewn button hole you see before you! In fact I ended up hand sewing everything because seams with the felt would have been too chunky. It was a very satisfying little project and thanks to the lack of sewing machine I could work on it outside in the sun!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I made a bra! on: August 30, 2009 04:49:25 AM

I have finally done it... I got round to drafting a bra pattern. This is a basic shell of the style I will use. I can't wait to get some blue ribbon to add a big bow to the middle of this one. I may even make myself some matching knickers! Any ideas of details I could adapt in the future would be great. I thought of adding a front closure with a big ribbon for something less pratical and more pretty.

All your ideas as so cool. I think adding the bow to clothing is a really good idea!

Ooo I saw this on your blog and then I stumbled upon it here! The internet is a small place...
Lovely to see the before picture.
10  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Toast and Champagne Plate on: July 26, 2009 04:03:23 PM

It's my friend's birthday today. I'm taking her to Bob Bob Ricard restaurant for toast and champagne. I made her this upcycled plate to tell her about our trip...

I wrote her an I.O.U. message on the back of the plate in the same ceramic outliner. I added a thirties style border on the back too (the restaurant is decorated like a thirties train station), but I forgot to photograph this.
