Exploring the many uses of patterns for other craft projects.

Hello everyone, okay i have recently been made redundant and to prevent myself from going crazy from boredom, i have taken on a few projects, and i thought i would share them with you guys. This was my first one:

I had some spare christmas baubles and decided to make them more halloweeny. I want to do the whole grinning jack range, as well as the various jack skellington ones, except not long after i took this pic, the Dawn of the ZP fell to his doom and broke in half. :(

And this was my next project:
I used a standard tote bag, painted the stencil on for reference and then sewed on every little bead. This took some time to complete but was very therapeutic, and i'm very pleased with the result. Hope you like :D

Love the baubles and the bag. I've tried doing baubles but don't have very steady hands for such fine work. And what you have achieved is mighty fine in more ways than one.

Love the bag. In the words of Gary Barlow, you need a little patience. Looks amazing but I reckon on a black tote it would be stunning.

Great stuff MB and I look forward to seeing more projects! Hope you find a job soon - their loss!

Thanks guys! I was going to use a black tote bag for pretty poison, but the ones i have a very lightweight and wouldn't have held the beads very well. I think i shall experiment with some other designs and other bags. Glad you like :D

Awesome, MooBoo! I can imagine what the process would be like to add all those little beads, and wow... it must take patience. I've never seen one of my patterns done in that style, so thanks for taking the time. I hope to see more of this sort of thing from ya!
