1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Re: old fashioned yarn hangers! on: April 08, 2010 10:04:28 AM
I have a load of metal hangers, they seem to multiply in my house,   I'm also lucky enough to have a huge box of nylon selvege that I got about 3 years ago in a local charity shop (I knew I would use it one day).
I've just made my first one in pink and lilac which has instantly been claimed by my daughter for her princess dress.   Thanks for posting this, aI would never have done this otherwise.

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: My own personal and uniq purse (recycle) on: January 16, 2009 06:12:39 PM
Love it.   I've made a few of these, but can never work out how to attatch the handle so they always end up as clutch bags.
How did you attatch the handle? (if you don't mind sharing).

My OH keeps on at me to throw my fave jeans as they are ripped at the knee,  I'm gonna do this to them and keep on wearing them.

I know I'm all grown up, but everyone knows I'm still a big kid at heart!!

My OH has asked me to make him a microwave heat pack (wheat/rice/corn bag), as the ones in the store are the wrong shape.  I'm going to make them for all the family this christmas, male and female,  with washable covers - made in fabric to suit each person.

These are ideal for the males in my family who regularly suffer with "man flu".

Your bag looks great,  I made a newspaper one out of our local paper for a friend who was emigrating.  I've made a few of these,  but I always end up leaving them as clutch bags, I never seem to be able to get the handles to feel secure enough.
Any hints/advice on attatching the handles would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the tutorial.   I made my first pair last night, only took me an hour start to finish.   I've been hunting through my stash and have found fabric for three more pairs.  Going to try and get them done tonight, when the kids are in bed.  I'll get at least one pair done, as I want to wear them out tommorrow.

I love this,  My sister never has less than 20 toilet rolls in the bathroom cupboard.  I'm adding this to my list of things to make for christmas.  I'd already decided that everyone was getting scarves this year and this will be perfect for her.

You definately wont need the bolero then.   I'm up north in the lakes and it's hot, london and the south always get it better than us, so it'll be bikini weather for you.

Thats really pretty.   Not sure where in england you're going,  But we're in the middle of a heat wave over here, so you might get lucky and not need the bolero.

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Can't play piano, but I wear one pretty well! (TUTORIAL on page 4) on: December 28, 2007 05:48:41 PM
Thanks so much for the tutorial on this one,  I added it to my favorites when you first posted intending to make one for my niece.   I showed her your pics when she arrived tonight and she loved it so I got started right away.  "will it be finished for when I go home tommorrow" she said.  "of course" I replied.  I can crochet a scarf in one night no problem.  Scarf is now finished or at least the crochet part is, think it might take me a couple of weeks to sew in all those ends though.
