Custom made flightcase sewing/work box

A little bit of DIY & remake.
Took a custom made smaller flightcase, normally used for fragile music equipment when you travel on tour.
Very good for my purpose! It has a padded interior.

Covered the foam with a colorful fabric. Used textile glue to make the fabric stick to the surface on the bottom part of the box.

Covered buttons in the lid.

Voilá – new sewing box! Heavy duty on the outside & cute on the inside :)

Starch it! Join me in new Flickr group!

gunsTwo700You all know I have made 3D pieces with filetcrochet and sugarwater :)

Today I started a new Flickr pool called Starch it! (Edit 2018, This Flickr-group is not active. It is no longer possible to enter)
My plan is for you all to join in and we can explore what we can make with this technique together.
You don’t have to crochet – you can use pieces of old Doilys, filetcrocheted bedspreads & other flea market finds. We can share recipes of starch (I only know about sugar/water but I’ve heard about glue and potato/water etc)
What do you say?
I would love if you joined me ! Just email me or make a comment here with your email and I send you an invite to the group.

The Craftzine blog liked the idea. I’m so excited!!! :) > Craftzine blog


I get a lot of questions if I have a pattern for this piece and I’m sorry to say I don’t have a pattern.

This sculpture is a see-through 3D piece, crocheted free hand in several pieces and moulded to be able to ”stand on its own”.
Even if I would have a pattern for the different pieces, it would unfortunatelly not be possible to make a copy from it. Because you must have the exact same guns (to fit the pieces) to make the mold from. This is my old play cowboy gun from 1977 which is not on the market anymore. :)

Floral USB memory stick

A little more flowers in your life can’t hurt… can it?
Started out with a 2Gb Usb memory stick – boring boring… had to cut of a plasic bit on the end and smooth the edges with a file.
Then I crocheted tight around it in two pieces, one top & one bottom. I used embroidery yarn (Perl) multi colored green. A little bit of what I fancy = flowers. I took linnen embroidery yarn and made random tiny leafs and flowers.
Sewed them all on the crocheted USB cozy cover.

It’s working well and it nearly blends in to the floral background here on my work desk at home.
