21  Knitted purse in Knitting: Completed Projects by dizzybell06 on: October 28, 2008 06:44:04 PM
Hey everyone!  I have been working on this for a while and I am so happy to be finished with it.  The pattern is from this book http://sussdesigns.com/knittingSite/productDetail.php?prodID=164 Hollywood Knits - Style.  I stuck to the pattern for the most part but I changed the dimensions a little.  This was my first knitting project and I think it turned out pretty good (hopefully it looks like a knitted bag is supposed to)- I have received a lot of complements on it also.  I used bamboo handles and part of a fat quarter for the lining (which I hand stitched in) Sorry the pics kinda suck - I was anxious to post it so I didn't feel like taking better pics.  Hope you guys like it!

22  Oval purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by dizzybell06 on: October 27, 2008 11:41:33 AM
Hi everyone!  I made this purse a few weeks ago.  This is the pattern I used http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/show/3825 .  I used some scrap fabric to make it.  I made a smaller version because I didn't want to waste any good fabric if it didn't turn out okay.  I gave the purse to a friends daughter.  Hopefully it will turn out better on a bigger scale since I kind of winged the reduction of the pattern.

23  Crochet hook roll in Crochet: Completed Projects by dizzybell06 on: October 27, 2008 11:31:38 AM
Hey everyone!  I have been wanting to make a crochet hook roll for quite some time now, and I finally got around to doing it about two weeks ago.  The fabric is a pillowcase from Ikea's as-is section and it cost about $1.99 and I already had the ribbons.  So here it is, hope you guys like it!

24  Thread Catcher in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by dizzybell06 on: October 27, 2008 11:11:49 AM
Hey everyone!  I made this thread catcher about a week ago.  I looked at mimiw's post (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=257125.0) and kinda just made it up as I went along.  My pin cushion is not removable and my thread catcher does not sit on my desk, it hangs from my desk handle.  I just put stuffing in the pin cushion instead of sand because I didn't feel like waiting to get sand.  I also didn't have any interfacing to mike it more stable, but it serves its purpose pretty well.  Hope you guys like it!

25  Pretty little purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by dizzybell06 on: October 05, 2008 07:55:42 PM
I made this purse for my mom today - I made it from left over fabric from the bag I made yesterday for my aunt's birthday (aunt's bag - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=272205.0).  I am quite pleased with it and it turned out way better than I had expected since I have never made the outside of a purse by sewing a bunch of pieces of fabric together (the outside is three pieces if fabric sewn together - 2 of the stripes on each side and 1 of the other pattern on each side).  The bag is about 8 inches high and 12 inches wide.  She wanted it to have some sort of closure so I did the button and little fabric strip.  It also has 3 pockets inside - a taller pocket made from the stripes and another longer pocket from the other fabric (with a yo-yo on it) that is broken into 2 pockets.  My mom liked it a lot and I think it is one of the best purses I have made!  Hope you guys like it!

26  Cute bag for school in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by dizzybell06 on: October 05, 2008 07:54:24 PM
My aunt's birthday is coming up and she has been hinting that she wanted me to make her a bag that she could use for school - she's a teacher.  The bag is reversible and I am pretty happy with it.  It has two pockets on the front in the striped pattern.  It also has a zipper pocket inside, a panel of the paisley fabric that is divided into three pockets and a cell phone pouch that is clipped into the bag and can be removed to carry around.  I hope you guys like it!

27  Snuggly Elephant Pillow in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by dizzybell06 on: October 03, 2008 01:29:19 PM
I made this pillow today for my little cousin for Christmas.  I used snuggle flannel and the pocket is made from two t shirts (I hate sewing with jersey because its stretchy but the colors matched perfectly.  The pocket doesn't look that bad in person, but it looks a little wonky in the pictures).  The elephant stuffed animal is mine, but I am trying to find one to put in the pocket for my cousin.  I'm kind of in love with the pillow and I have a little bit of the elephant flannel left over so I might make a smaller version for myself.  Hope you guys like it!

28  Art Apron in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by dizzybell06 on: September 11, 2008 05:15:44 PM
Hi everyone!  So I am going to be an Aide in the art classes at an elementary school and the art teacher suggested that I get a smock or apron.  I wanted one that would have like a plastic texture so that stuff would wipe right off of it.  Instead of buying one, I made myself one so that I would be sure to like it.  She also wanted me to make a name tag that would represent me - so of course I had to sew one (I then paced it in a plastic name tag holder thingy).  I think it turned out pretty good, it's not perfect but considering it's my first time making an apron, using iron on clear vinyl, and the fact that I  made up the pattern as i went along, I don't think it turn out too bad.  I hope you guys like it!

29  Pink Flowery Pillow in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by dizzybell06 on: August 01, 2008 06:42:20 PM
I made this pillow for the school I work at.  It's for the bed where the sick kids sleep.  I made it so that the pillow could be easily removed so the case could be washed.  This is the first time I used my machine to do the button holes (I usually do them by hand).  They were kind of hard to do but I don't think they turned out to bad.  I'm starting to think that it's to nice for sick kids to sleep on but oh well.

30  Cute bag for school in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by dizzybell06 on: July 29, 2008 08:26:00 PM
So I made this bag back in February or March, but I wasn't completely happy with it (I didn't like the rough edges of the seams on the inside and a few other things).  So I decided to fix it today and this is how it turned out.  I don't have a picture of my first attempt though.



The fabric on the outside is reflected on the inside pocket and the fabric on the inside is reflected on the outside pocket.  There is also a zipper pocket inside and the straps have the opposite fabric on them(when the plaid is on the outside the straps are the flowers and vice versa). The bag is reversible and it also has a little pouch in it for my cell phone and ipod.  Hope you like it - sorry the pictures are not that good.

inside pockets



for some odd reason I forgot to fold the fabric the right way so in the zipper pocket you can see the wrong side of the fabric - opps!



inside bag






P.S. - That was my first time installing a zipper (I didn't change the zipper part of the bag although I would have if I remembered that you could see the wrong side of the fabric!)  The zipper give me a few problems as I managed to cut the hole for the zipper as the same size as the actual zipper so it wouldn't have anything to attach to.  I had to sorta kinda fix it hahah.  I'm getting better at zippers though ...hopefully  Undecided
