I've made a few handbags the last few years, and have been really happy with the results. I think the ones I've liked the best are the ones I put together without a pattern - I love a good sewing challenge!
I totally need to make a cool gingerbread house this year. This beautiful sculpture is actually made from cake! She gives complete directions, if you're interested. Christmas Eve Cake (yup, cake ) @eli_chilev on flickr.com or @http://cakecentral.com
