Mmmmmm - ladies, I think we need to get back to the Toesy Toasters.  What can you think of that uses a bit more than just your scraps of mohair?  What about a luxurious throw for your couch?  A plush decorative pillow to throw on your bed?  Mmmmmmmm?

What great ideas everyone !  This challenge  really inspired  so here is what I came up with last night.  It's an little mohair purse IPOD holder for my daughter.  It is lined with an animal print upholstery velvet I got from a fellow TTer.   Would work for a cell phone too.  Not an original concept I know, but a custom holder for her.

Bravo Tammy-and now all her friends will want them.....hmmmm....a quick and easy side business perhaps?

I had a slight detour bear_cry ....and a wasted day in the hospital  bear_angry ....and not as a nurse but on the other side of the ugh bed pan    bear_wacko .....so I am way behind.....but plan to catch up in the next 2 days... bear_grin

I am almost done with the other challenge going on-doing something outside of our Comfort Zone

Mary love your little dollikin avatar.....so sweet-did you do her?  Like the gals who re do babydolls?  Such beautiful dolls they end up with.they come up with.

That looks fantastic Dilu good way of using your mohair. :clap:  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:

Its fun to wear, if you love moghair, and the whole project was simply tootoo easy.  Anyone who can make a bear can do this.  I'd be happy to talk you through it if you like......


This delicious mohair is the 610S/C (dont we all love that?!) 1 1/2 inches 528S from my favorite mohair supplier, Intercal, who, for you new kids, is the host of our board.  I love how the soft honey color sets off the yellows in the turquoise jacket.

You all would not believe how easy this was.......




Now come on you guys.....lets see somthing new!
