3  Chopsticks zipper bag set in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by greybird on: May 06, 2019 12:52:46 PM


I made this matching set of zipper bags years ago for the STS swap. I was making a lot of knitting/crochet pouches back in that time period.  Your project would go in the large pouch and all your little doodads you needed for the project would go in the small zip pouch.  Smiley

I think the chopsticks fabric was by Robert Kaufman.   And the beaded flower zipper pull was made by LaughingLark (in a previous STS round).

4  Journal Tassel - with tutorial in Completed Projects by greybird on: April 15, 2019 10:52:48 AM



I made this last year for a swap but forgot to upload the photos and tutorial until now.  My swap partner wanted a clip on tassel for her journal. 






To make one you will need:

  • ribbon/fabric etc cut to double the length you want for your tassel (so when you fold it in two it is the desired length)
  • embroidery floss
  • needle
  • fray check
  • a swivel lobster snap hook clasp (this one was 1 1/2" x 3/4", D ring inner width is 1/2 inch)
  • and a weight of some sort (not shown in this photo)





Thread your ribbons through the D ring part of the swivel hook to the halfway point.





Weight down the ends and gently pull on the hook until the ribbons are nice and straight.





Take a long strand of floss and make a tight square knot.





Wrap the floss around and around until it looks right to you.  Then tie another tight square knot.

Take your needle and thread it with one end of the floss and carefully thread it under the wraps so that the floss you used is now a part of the tassel.  Cut floss to length to match ribbons.  Repeat with the other end of the floss.





Now find something to balance the tassel in as shown in the photo and then fray check all the ends.  Let dry. 

Done!   Smiley

Got my first set of coins!  These are from curiousfae.

She went with my Harry Potter (platform 9) and bird themes.  Smiley  And adorned them with sparkles!  Cheesy  There are little gems on all the bird coins and she also added some shimmer to each of the coins but I wasn't able to capture that in the photo.  It's very pretty in real life.



The bird coins are named:
Happiness is a bluebird on your shoulder
Springtime
sitting pretty
Fly

Thank you!   Smiley
