21  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / More Knitting Project Bags on: July 25, 2009 10:24:03 PM
i found this awesome tutorial for drawstring bags and I wanted to make a few for my WIPs.  I made 4 so far, one is not pictured, it is the same build as these but larger and solid hunter green outer with khaki inner for my boyfriend.
The first one is square bottomed, the outside fabric is pink upholstery fabric and the inside is princess fabric that I used fusible interfacing on to make it a little stronger.  I used a pink satin cord and a white cordstop.  This bag is pretty small, it would be great for a sock project or a small hat. 

The next one is made with green upholstery type fabric. it is larger, about 9X11 inches with a green satin cord and white cord stop.  The fabric was from my stash.

The fabric was in the remnant bin at Joann and I saw the word lavender on it and had to have it. Lavendar is my favorite herb.  This bag is also about 9X11 inches. I used the herb fabric on the outside and a cream colored upholstery fabric inside.
22  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / First Kool Aid Dyed Yarn! on: July 22, 2009 09:49:52 PM
Today my daughter and I had a yarn dyeing extravangazna.  Smiley  We did three skeins (223, 194, and 270 yards each).  This is the first one.  DD picked out the colors, we used pink lemonade, lemon lime, blue razberry, and lemonade mixed with some golden wilton's cake dye.  It turned out sooo nice.  It looks like rainbow sherbet.  This skein is Paton's Classic Wool Merino worsted weight.  

The other two skeins are still drying, pictures up tomorrow. I love kool aid!
23  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / has anyone tried fisherman's wool for kool aid dying? on: July 20, 2009 12:22:10 PM
I have a 40% coupon for Joann and I was thinking about buying some of the natural colored fisherman's wool to dye with koolaid.  It has alot of yardage and I was thinking about splitting up into two skeins. 
24  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / new knitting bag on: July 16, 2009 08:56:54 PM
I saw the tutorial for this type of bag and I just had to have one. They are really neat and fairly easy, it took me a little while to figure out how to sew it without sewing the lining to the outside before turning it but all in all I love it. I may add a button with a loop closure to one side to close it up a bit more. It has six small pockets, one picture shows my cell phone in it. Shown with one ball of yarn, a hat in progress, and my cell inside.  

25  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / twenty minute tote on: July 15, 2009 09:24:50 PM
I saw this fabric in the clearance bin at joanne today and I had to buy it for my daughter.  I made her a simple reversible tote bag.  The dark pink fabric is thick and sturdy and it looks really cute with the princess fabric.

I am trying to make my boyfriend a cute bookmark.  I have blue ribbon and a gorgeous blue teardrop that fits over the end.  I am having a hard time finding beads that fit over the ribbon.  Is there a certain way to thread the ribbon through the beads or do I just need to find beads with larger holes?

29  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / clothes for Build-A-bear? on: July 17, 2008 03:44:01 PM
My daughter has a Build-A-Bear which is her favorite toy ever. she loves changing her outfits and playing with her.  Currently she has two different outfits but i got to thinking and that clothes should not be super hard to make.  Do you guys know of any patterns or tutorials which I could use for her clothes? I would like to make her a PJ set first.  She is a 17" tall bear. 
30  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / where to find affordable 100% cotton batting? on: April 09, 2008 03:29:38 PM
I would like to make a blanket to lay in the backseat when my dogs are in the car with me.  I want to use 100% cotton batting in it but I don't know what websites have the best deal on it.  Everything I see at Wal-Mart and JoAnns is synthetic stuff that I don't really want to use...
