1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Finished Crib Quilt on: April 10, 2010 06:12:56 PM
I haven't been able to sew for awhile... work got the best of me.  But I really wanted to make a quilt for my friends baby shower tomorrow so I pulled a few late nights and just finished today.

It's tied, not quilted... that's all I had time for!

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Laptop Tote from 4 Placemats on: May 05, 2008 03:37:27 PM
I got these placemats, Martha Stewart for KMart, at a local odd lot store.  $1.49 each!



They are made of grosgrain ribbons sewn together.



I used 4 of them to make this laptop tote.



I lined it with some left over Amy Butler fabric I had.



It's keeps it's structure and protects the computer with a layer of stiff interfacing and a layer of fusible fleece.

I just completed this for a friend who ditched her stressful NYC job and moved to KY to work with horses.


4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / How can I De-Dart a pattern? on: January 26, 2008 02:11:23 PM
Hello smart sewers...

Here's my question.

I'm not a dart friendly girl.   Most pattern and ready to wear plus size makers think if you're plus sized you have to be at least a C or D cup.   I'm not... I'm a small B, but I wear a size 32.

Darts in patterns (and RTW) always hit me in an odd spot and look weird.

How can I de-dart a pattern when I cut it out, so that it will still all come together right when I sew it up...


5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / ISO Japanese Twist Bag Pattern on: January 17, 2008 12:29:42 PM
Hi Purse People...

I came across this purse, and want to make it:

But the link to the free pattern is no longer live:
http://www.craftsandframes.com/DeptFabric/freetwistBagPV.htm

Does anyone here have the pattern they could send me?  Or do they know of another link to get it?  Or is it here in the tutorials and I just can't find it?

Thanks in advance.

Jennifer

6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Photos of Finished Purses STOLEN on: January 10, 2008 06:48:47 PM
Oh my!

I was looking around eBay for some Amy Butler patterns and found that this person has taken a picture of a purse I made (and put on Flickr) to sell her pattern!

I asked her to remove it.   We'll see what she does.

But there are others that are likely not hers.  Check to see if they're yours!

And you might want to check out her other auctions... they all have photos of finished projects.

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / First New Purse of 2008 on: January 07, 2008 01:40:18 PM
Feeling a need for a new tote for the new year.

No pattern.  Just yardage, a sharp pencil, some kraft paper and a dream ; )

I love using upholstery fabric in bags.  It's so strong and holds it's shape so well.  I did use a fairly sturdy interfacing on both the exterior and the lining. I wanted it to be structured even empty.   The sides each have a pocket (cell phone, keys).  And there is a pocket inside the lining as well. 

This is also my first foray into snaps.



8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Handemade Cloth Labels? on: October 26, 2007 05:08:19 PM
I'm trying to find a good way to make my own cloth labels to put in my purses.

I found this here:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=40044.120

But the pictures and explanations are missing!

Anyone have another tutorial or idea?

Thanks!

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Made My Own Pattern on: October 18, 2007 01:55:33 PM


This is my first attempt at making my own pattern (and my first attempt at placing pictures here!)

I found elements I liked in a few different bags and I put them together and came up with this.  It's simple I know, but it's a start ; )
