the projects in here are very straightforward and often times quick, too. take this checkbook cover, for example. i made one for a good friend of mine and then followed up with one for me since I liked it so much.
next time, i might add some stiff fusing to make it a little more sturdy though.
very fast, very easy, and very fun to make.
this dress was the first thing i made from the book for my niece, Mia. sometimes i wish i had a daughter just so i could make things like this. luckily, i have 3 nieces to curb any thoughts of trying for a girl. my hands are full enough as it is. i did get a few kicks trying it on jamie for a proper fitting though (oh, i wish i took a picture of that).
i did try making the travel case/cosmetics bag, but it turned out completely skewed and ridiculous, or abstract, a term that sounds much better. instead, i made this simple pouch for my friend's birthday.
just thought i would mention that blunder so no one is under any illusion that i am constantly creating beautiful things around here. there are some hits, but many misses and usually i don't feel the need to post about the failures. although that may make a good post one day, too.
