Here is my latest...
The teeny Tiny Tipi
It's 6 feet across the bottom - just enough room for two 4 year olds

2  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Sleeping Mask with pattern on: March 19, 2009 09:45:55 PM
My MIL asked me to make her some new sleep masks and I figured I should share the pattern

should print to right scale if you fit to page.


this link might be to a pdf version of the pattern...or it might not work.
take a chance and let me know if it does work please.

4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Christmas Tree Skirt Pattern on: November 14, 2006 01:29:12 PM

I was supposed to be working but.... I was thinking of Christmas.
Here is a tree skirt pattern my brain thought up. I made it to fit a 11x17 piece of paper. If you want the pdf pm me.

You need to cut out 12 of each of two (or more) colours for a total of 24 pieces. You sew two of these wrong sides together leaving a gap in your stitching for turning. Turn piece right side out and sew gap closed. Do this to all pieces to total 12 "units". You need to have mirrored units - I found this out the hard way - you need six of one and six mirrored ones. Press well. Take two "units" and place them same colours together matching edges and sew along one of the dashed lines on pattern. Do this to all units. You should have 6 units now. Take two of those units and place them same colours together matching edges and sew along the other dashed line on pattern. Leave one unit unjoined so that you can place this around a tree. Fold back "petals" and press really well. Tack sew the tips of the "petals" down.
Ta Da!!! Tree Skirt!
I haven't tried the pattern yet because I am still at work. I will post mine when finished.
This is my first two "units" sewn together to make a bigger unit.
5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / pfaff varimatic 899 Manual on: November 07, 2006 12:30:47 PM
Any one out there know where I can find a copy of the pfaff varimatic 899 Manual. I bought this for my 7 year old daughter so that she can learn how to sew too. The manual had gotten wet an d mouldy. I need to know what the different feet are and how to oil it.
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Bunny Cage on: December 29, 2005 08:12:10 AM
My DH and I made my DD's bunny a cage last night. I was surfing ebay hoping to find a cheap cage because the poor critter was cramped in what we had. I came across someone making and selling these. I had most of the materials to start with. The silver mesh is cube storage, zip ties hold it all together, and there are corrugated plastic floors.it cost us $50 to make.

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Beaded Coin Purse on: December 17, 2005 11:09:33 PM
The object on the right is a beaded coin purse I made as a Christmas present for my friend.
I really hope she likes it.
The unfinished object on the left is an amulet bag for my friend's Mom. I hope she likes her present too.
The backs are just white leather. The images are supposed to be the lotus flower.

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Fleece Legwarmers on: January 03, 2005 11:40:05 AM
I made these fleece legwarmers for my daughter who refuses to wear anything but dresses - It's cold in Canada in the winter!

What I did was measure around her knee, and from her knee to the floor. Then I drew my pattern on a piece of paper. I added an inch to each side at the bottom of the pattern to make a flare at the ankle. Remember to add seam allowance - I keep forgetting and have had to give a few pairs away.
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / CD Necklace on: July 08, 2004 06:51:40 AM

First posting of something I made with the help of this wonderful group.
go to http://groups.msn.com/InsaneIdeas/crafts.msnw?action=ShowPhoto&PhotoID=12 (lost in the internet and I don't know how to get it back - sorry)
I took a CD and Nuked it in the microwave for 5 seconds, then cut it with scissors into equal sized pieces, then drilled holes with the dremel tool, and then baked them in my oven at 400 degrees until they started to soften. They go from the iridescence to this wild blue color when they melt. Then I didn't have anything to make a chain out of so I used bead pins to make a chain. My friends want me to make and sell them so I went to the comic book store and asked if they could save me all the throw away cds they get (game CD's are purple) so I will post more when I make them.
