81  Patchwork tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by mink_bikini on: July 11, 2007 12:16:27 PM
My god I now have a new found respect for the quilters, I am a very slap dash kinda girl and triangles were probably not the best shape but I do like the overall result if I do say so myself, bear in mind that it is my first tote, it's reversible and I've never done patchwork before.

Would love to hear what you think.

82  First dress/tunic in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by mink_bikini on: July 11, 2007 12:08:45 PM
This was my first ever attempt at a dress, and I must say I am quite happy with it, now that I've made quite a few things since I can see where I went wrong but for a first, no pattern attempt, I think the girl done good.

Excuse the awful photo, husband trying to take photo to appease me whilst sat down in his chair watching CSI Miami!!! he has succeeded in making me look cross eyed as a payback for interrupting him!

What d'ya reckon?

83  WACK POW THUMP Kids sheet into cute micro dress with capped sleeves in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by mink_bikini on: July 11, 2007 11:57:33 AM
 My first dress from a pattern and a kids sheet for a wopping 6 bucks!!

I'm well chuffed with it, wasn't sure about having such a loud dress but I was convinced to make a statement dress so here it is. I'm thinking about adding a section at the bottom as I cut the dress too short so I need to wear leggings under it, following the petite lines in error (oops!!)


Let me know what you think, would love to hear comments (nice ones please!!) Grin

Piccy of dress on (fingers crossed)

84  First post - Mums birthday handbag project in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by mink_bikini on: July 11, 2007 11:34:37 AM
 This is my first bag made from the free Burda pattern listed in the Ultimate tutorial guide for bags etc. It has appliqued heart and star on an inside pocket, and plenty of beads and diamante which you can't make out that well, because the photo isn't too light but it is very sparkly!

It also looks a bit wonky, but that's the way it's laid out on the floor (honest I promise!!)

Really pleased with the finished item and can't wait for my Mum to open it tomorrow!

Any comments would be appreciated.
