That is absolutely brilliant. Looks like it took a lot of patience.

What a great use of materials, I think the wool really makes it. Could you loop the loop ear-rings through the wool at the side? or are they too tight.

Thanks everyone, I'm looking forward to seeing the denim change in colour as it wears. The kids loved them so much they spent all last night drawing and writing. These things are sooo addictive and are so much easier to do the second time around. The fact I used quilting fabric probably had a lot to do with it too. This one took me less than an hour from start to finish.

front - Why do straight sides always look curved in pics? I did try padding the heart with a little filler but it just wouldn't sit right so I pulled it out.


shewolf that's what I was thinking. I was only going to make them for my younger 2 as the older 2 thought they were too childish but now they've seen them they want one too, so I will quickly make theirs and then I'm going to attempt one for myself so it holds an A4 pad, will post the dimensions if it works out OK.

Or I might try a smaller version for a shopping list pad and pencil. mmm did I say these are addictive...

Like the title says, I'm not really sure where else to put this one. Following the tute from http://craftapple.wordpress.com/2006/12/30/little-artist-drawing-case-tutorial/ I am going to make some for each of my kids. Had heaps of denim lying around and since Ds 8 loves denim he is first. Should have tried one of the others first cause it has lots of layers and sewing through that many layers of denim without an industrial machine is a NIGHTMARE. I used both sides of the denim to create contrast and used his favourite colours for the stitching.  After much swearing and 5 broken Denim needles this was the result. The sides are actually straight, not sure why they curve in the pics.

The front..

and the inside...

So glad the others want lighter cotton. Thanks for looking

Can kids contribute to this one. My daughter, aged 8, made herself an adorable little pet last night and really wants to add it to the comp.

You did an amazing job on the tank, the set looks great, he is going to LOVE it. The applique looks really professional too.

You did such a great job, it looks adorable, just like your little one. I haven't attempted shirring yet but should before it goes out of fad again.
