The double sling bag from Sewing Green by Betz White. I used a plain brown alova suede for the inside lining. The strap is a wide adjustable webbing. This one fits 2 waters and is insulated.

I use very nice, shiny, heavy stones as pattern weights. They are so appealing to small people that they go missing often. This one I wrapped in polymer clay and embellished with clay shapes before baking. I don't think this one will walk off easily.

Shoulder sling bag. Insulated and lined. Holds a 12, 16, or 20oz water. Not so great for my 32 or 40. I'll have to modify the pattern. Added some great buttons for decoration. Thanks Mary for those perfectly matching buttons! Pattern from: Sewing Green by Betz White.

Very fine polymer clay ropes twisted and baked. As you can see, after it cooled, little hands got ahold of it.

Very bad picture of a little monkey shoe. I actually made a pair, but these little little guys keep running.

I'm brand new to drawing, I'm challenged with a pencil in general. A helper drew one of these, but I think I'm improving beyond a deformed stick person. The book I used is from the children's section on learning to draw.

Another pair of leather shoes. Can you tell those are sailboats? These don't fit as well as the star ones. I'd like to try again.

The before and after. Our dining chairs are gross- they once were white. Who knew it could be so fast and easy! I used a screw driver, scissors, and a stapler. Took me 6 minutes per chair.
