I love your bags and your English is very good. I am also new to Craftster and completely addicted to making tote and hand bags. Everyone is so nice and helpful here, I agree.

I had not seen the tutorial for first one in your post. Thank you for sharing!
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Scorpion Head Piece on: March 29, 2008 04:56:32 PM
I made this a few weeks ago for a friend of mine. We all go to the WDBX 91.1 Community Radio funraiser ball and this year's theme was the Zodiac. Miss Charlotte is a Scorpio and not at all crafty. I made this from my stash, cardstock, glitter, diamond glaze and pipe cleaners. My 7 year old helped design the tail.

I started this late and spent so much time on it, that I didn't have time to make an Aquarius piece for me. No matter, got to wear one of my vintage hats!

Don't have a photo of her wearing it. It was oh so hard to give it away, but she was more than pleased and it looked great on her!

Oh My Gawd! My daughter has a tub of ponies and she would never miss one or two! O can't wait to make some twisted ponies for my girlfriends. I've been needing gift ideas...

Thanks! The longer I go not shopping, the easier it gets. My friends are even starting to see that it's a good idea, especially when the cheap Made-in-China stuff they have been buying falls apart a few weeks after they buy it. Fortunately, my 7 year old daughter loves to thrift shop. 

If you make a list and think ahead, you can find the things you really need at local thrift and tag sales. It forces you to see the difference between what you want right now and what you actually need.

This will have to be my next instant gratification project. We have everything we need to make them in the house right now. (7 year old daughter and I). Thanks for the Sploodge Tutorial and reminding me that I want to make these!

Teflon foot? That's to keep it slick running through your machine and not sticky? I'm more scared now!....Still not ready for vinyl. I will post them when I get up the nerve to try it.

I am completely terrified of vinyl, yet I love it so. What kind of needle are you sewing with? I'm about to jump into making some simple tote bags and want to get off to a good start.

My New Year's Resolution is a little different. I am going the whole year buying only resale. Thought being, there is enough stuff on the planet now for a person get by on, without making new stuff. Ok, the big exceptions are groceries and any emergency items I might need for home repair or auto. No, a wedge needle for my sewing machine is not a necessity. As much as I want one right now....

My first real challenge has been birthday gifts for the many children in the herd of families my daughter and I run with. I decided to make them all sock doggies. There were 5 birthdays in January alone! I had a big bag of polyfill and once I told people about the project, they started giving me socks.

This is the first time I've posted anything, sorry for the jumpie to: A few finshed dogs

One dog got gifted before getting his picture taken. The film canister is a stash 'barrel' that I give cash, movie money or small trinkets in. Here's a very pink one and some other angles of the doggies.

I found the directions in Martha Stewart kids magazine a few years ago. Here is a link to an online version. I pretty much am making them exactly as you find this tutorial, too many to make to experiment right now. The only thing that I am doing differently is sewing closed the face before attaching it to the body.

These are stupid easy to make, and I'm getting them done faster too. A month in, I have succeeded in avoiding my usual retail haunts and actually have saved some money as an added bonus! (plus, the kiddies love them)
