1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Good Luck Cowl *FIRST POST!* on: January 29, 2011 07:44:36 PM
Ooh - that's gorgeous!  I love the pattern and the yarn is fabulous.  I like nice bright winter accessories - so many people wear drab black and grey and it's nice to see a bit of colour.

Neat idea to use reversible cables for a moebius.  I've been thinking I need to make a cowl and might take inspiration from you.  Smiley

I like the colours, too.
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Felt pinwheels on: January 29, 2011 07:27:58 PM

I found this a very fiddly project but I like the look of the finished product!  Because they're made of felt both necklace and earrings are pretty light.

Comments and criticisms?
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / 32 pieces of felt, 60 sequins and a bazillion hand-stitches later... on: January 29, 2011 07:18:17 PM
My husband and I are off to France in March and I wanted a compact bag big enough to fit all of my stuff I expect to need everyday (wallet, phone, glasses case, tissues, camera etc).  I also wanted it to pack reasonably flat and light for the flights.  Obviously I wasn't going to find anything stylish that fit these criteria so I decided to make one.

I don't do a lot of hand-sewing but for some reason I decided to embroider it with lady beetles.  By the time I was sewing on the twelfth one I was glad it was the last!  Yesterday I finished Les Cochinelle:

I kind of loosened up in terms of precision on the last bit of topstitching but it's only really messy on the back, so I'm not too worried.  I'm quite proud of most of it.  Smiley

Zip closure courtesy of a tutorial on Craftster (Inserting a gusset zipper, perhaps?).

My first inside zip pocket, also thanks to a Craftster tutorial.

I knew it wasn't going to be precise enough to sew a closure on the flap so I put glass beads along the edge to weight it down a little.

And finally a detail on a ladybird.

So, what do you think?
5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Bright and Sparkly Apron on: January 06, 2011 05:35:59 PM
It's really neat fabric and sparkles are always good!  Using the same strap is a great idea as it's all adjustable with a minimum of fuss.  Are the white parts channels for the strap?
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Sea life mobile for my cousin's baby boy for christmas (full of pictures) on: January 03, 2011 06:24:26 PM
That is amazing!  I love the idea of a knitted mobile and this one is really cute!  The improvised creatures are fantastic and the octopus itself is awesome.

This rocks!
7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Hot Chocolate on a Stick! on: December 05, 2010 08:23:20 PM
A marshmallow - what a great idea Icebyrd!

Caity Bear, using a candy cane as the stick did occur to me, to make it minty.  I think dipping the finished product in chocolate and then rolling in crushed candy cane would also be pretty nice.  Grin

I love these - they are so cute!  They look like they'd be fun to decorate too.  Thanks for the pattern!

You can find fun science stuff at Professor Bunsen: http://www.profbunsen.com.au/.  They have all sorts of little goodies such as rubber duckies that change colour in hot water, balloon helicopters and super bubble mix.  The stuff is just fun in general but could also be useful for in the classroom/lab.
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: owl coin purse on: October 28, 2010 09:43:57 PM
What a cute purse - great job!  I wonder if putting the velcro strip vertically rather than horizontally would help?  That way it would still be secure close to the opening (so the coins are less likely to fall out) and would keep the beak in place.
