Nice job, looks like a piece of modern art.

I agree! I don't know if I'd try to make one, but I do like the look of it- I love recycled art!

The pattern came from the 2007 Pattern a day calendar. 

I love this! This would make a nicer gift for my canine "nieces and nephews"- better than the usual bunch of rawhide chews! Wink I have some flannel sheets that I could use- what a great idea! Did you stitch the strips together, or figure out a way to make a continuous strip?

And, I just got my 2007 Pattern-a-Day calendar yesterday- I didn't look through the whole thing, yet, though. What date is this from?

This is sooo funny! I never would have thought of tring this! What does it look like when it is dried out? You could spray-seal it or paint it and hang it in the kitchen!

Hmmm...I like it! I'm thinking it would make a neat holiday shirt or vest, too! Crochet a couple of rectangles, and attach them to a fabric base maybe (or maybe not!)...do they sell battery operated strands of lights? Otherwise, you'd have to stand in reach of an outlet every time you wore it!  Smiley

This is a great bag! I love how you used as many elements from the BDUs as possible!

These are so cute! Do they have a bottom, or are they the kind with an opening in the bottom so you can store your plastic bags.

I'd use one as a regular bag (with a bottom, of course!  Wink ). I don't have many yellow bags, though...where did they come from?

Thats pretty cool, are you going to wear it?

Thanks! I don't know if I'll wear it- I guess if I find the perfect thing to wear it with, I might! I've never worn a choker before and this one is about 2" wide (at the clay part- the rest is a single strand of beads). Might take some getting used to!

A fabric band, using original fabric that you cut off, would work well, too! That might even be the best idea! That way you know it would match and you could keep the cool buttons, and wouldn't have to worry about clashing with the existing trim.

I wouldn't cut the sleeves, though- it'd be just one more thing to get straight, and I think bolero styles look better with long sleeves. But, I'm not really up on fashion, so on the sleeve issue, you might want to get somebody else's opinion...  Wink

Can you find some matching or complimentary braided or woven trim and stitch it on? That might hide it. If you put on black trim, you could put on some cool black buttons.

Or, you could try some of that pre-beaded trim...that would definitely hide any uneven edges!

This was supposed to be a cuff bracelet...but when I put it in the oven to bake, something shifted and it wasn't wrist-shaped anymore. So, I added some beading wire on the sides, strung a bunch of seed beads and a few Swarovski crystals, added a toggle clasp and... Voila! A polymer clay crocheted necklace!

Very sticky to work with, so while I started with a hook, I switched to the ever-popular "finger-crochet" method!
