That's awesome, I well want to see them when they are done! (both beret and draft excluder) :)
Unfortunately I don't really have any talent at all.
I can sew a bit, but I've not touched my sewing machine in about two years because I never have much to do :(
I should make some blankets and quilts for my bed this year...

NEW NEW YEARS RESOLUTION :D

You could make a little flower-hatty-veil thing like people wear to funerals?
Not just funerals thoughhh, they are cute!
Or you could customise a bag or something, or make a hairband with something cool on it? :D

I suppose I just directly translated it without thinking, sorry. It's actually not quite clear to me what the proper English word is.
I found a wikipedia article on needlebinding. A lot of what it says there is inaccurate/wrong, but it explains the basic of what it is.

Anyway, here is a picture of my current project, the camera bag. I like that it has a different structure than knitting and crocheting, it is thicker than crochet and less stretchy than knitting. I'm not really that good at it yet, but it's fun.

Lots of tulle. I love tulle. If I could marry a batch of fabric, I'd definitely choose tulle to have and to hold, until death do us part. :P

For christmas I made about 9 stuffed animals for gifts, they were 2 monkeys, 3 sheep, an alien, a penguin, a cute little black imp dude, and what is called a sprite. So for now I am taking a little break. =]

Customizing old h&m shirts and giving them a fetish-ey touch (like with small PVC bits sewed on them, or bondage straps).
Making my own Steampunk goggles out of a welding goggle - the building centra and all DIY stores are my best friends atm.
Scarves and stoles out of fake fur.

I'm making a bag at the moment. In the past two days I've made a snood and a dress (out of the same fabric haha, definitely one to wear together...)

Then tomorrow, I might make a fascinator.

Ooh, too many ideas... I started a choker earlier, but stopped when I realised I needed beads I didn't have. I intend to make a mini top hat fascinator thing which I might do later on. I should also be making my AS Textiles project, but I'm off school because of the snow :~/.

I'm converting my baggy long legged PVC trousers into PVC bloomers, just gonna cut them short, put the zips and the fastenings into new places, add some lace and pow! Done! Also going to make some kind of t-shirt that goes with it that also acts as a corset liner, and maybe a PVC bustle and arm warmers for my Emilie Autumn concert....we'll see.

I read that "Briefcase is more my thong."

I plan on making the top for my EA outfit, but I still can't decide what to do for it.

Otherwise, I'm making a giant ball for my Person 3; Juno cosplay. It'll probably be made of paper, then coated in Modge Podge. Or a wire mesh ball, with a cushioned edging, then paper mache. OORRRR it will be foamboard with modge podge and gloss paint.

I'm making a pair of scruffy wool (yarn) falls right now when I have the time to spare.

Soon, so soon as I get around to moving my "making stuff" boxes from my gran's place to where I live now, I'm going to start making fingerless gloves from lace. One of my favourite things to make and then wear.
