    Hi,
    after the same instructions as celestes wreath, was created my wreath. Here is the Link:



    I have the pages processed only with the stapler (no tape) so rolled and stapled immediately and attached with hot glue on the cardboard.
    (the rest of the book is still being processed)

    I m currently learning to sew
    and i bought a book (ok, make it more like 5-6) with awesome bag-patterns

    this is the very first bag i made (ok, rather the very first thing at all...)





    (yeah, and i even cut off the hanging thread in the center)

    and this one i made for my mum





    the lining is actually a shepherd's plaid-pattern... but it looks quite weird on these pics


    and to prove that i still have sum fabric to continue... Weeeeniiii asked to see this


    Tropic's Avatar

    Tropic

     wow, the bag's are great do you have them sewn by hand or wit a sewing machine? p.s. I want a bag in the brown fabric, reminds me of chokolate

    21:29, 21st Nov 2014

    Honeybunny's Avatar

    Honeybunny

     a sewng machine... we r still in the befriending-phase and the brown one is a jersey-fabric, so it could only be baggy-bag but yeah, come visit and i make u one ... or we exchange: a bag for such a cute candy-monster

    due to the persuasion of a certain person (let her name us "HB" ) I went off immediately and bought glass marbles. For this Project:







    I shall still buy some more Marbles and make it a little higher.

    My mum was searching for a doorstopper... and i needed one, too

    So i made these two and wanted to give one to my mum for St. Nicholas Day



    but then i decided that i cant separate them


    so i my mum got both... and i guess i will make two new ones for myself



    Edit:

    someone threatened me with chocolate-denial

    so here is a pic of Fritz and Fritzine:



    and these r Heinz and Heidi



    and yeah... of course they look all the same...
    what do u think how many cousins i can make out of 1m of fabric... looooots

    but atm i m thinking about sum alterations, so they wont look that Christmasy anymore...

    I'm kindly asking people who dislike my chosen folding medium to close eyes for this post
    thank you


    We have in Serbia something called Slava, basically it's patron saint of family (if they're religion is Orthodox Christianity).
    Custom for such occasions is to bring some type of gift, vine coffe being most usuall.
    I adapted it a bit
    basket and hanging thingy are handcraft (I made it as hanging ornament but card as well as it has my written well wishes)
    I put whole present on picture just for show-of







    basket while Istill worked on it




    p.s. I said I'm not gonna look at this thread since it makes me think of new things to do without finishing old ones... but it seems I can't stay away from bragging
