51  Patchwork mini-messenger bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Eowynt on: July 03, 2009 11:44:57 AM
So, I am supposed to be packing up my house, but I run into some fabric scraps and leftover quilt blocks.  What is a girl to do:  pack or sew? Well instead of packing up my canned food, I donated them to a local food bank, and instead of packing my fabric, I sew.  My fiance is going to kill me. . .

Anyhoo, this is what I came up with:

and a close-up:

the back:

and a tree shot:

-I can never figure out the best way to take pictures of my work!  I hope you enjoy. . . please leave comments - I need something else to look at other than a looming bookcase of books I need to pack . . .

52  Fun with frogs purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Eowynt on: January 29, 2009 08:51:30 AM
 A couple of years ago Walmart* was selling some really cute froggy fabric-it wasn't high quality cotton, but it was cotton, and it was cheap. So I bought TONS of it.  After making pajamas, pillowcases, Singlet grocery bags, origami bags, etc, I had a lot of scraps.  I am not one to throw stuff out (pack rat, anyone?) so I had fun playing with my froggies, and I came up with this:

The back:


Side view (never mind that I didn't match up just so. . .).

It might be a little silly, but it was fun to make.

**As a side note, I am very mad at Walmart for closing their fabric departments - how about you guys?**

53  Jewel tone quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: January 26, 2009 06:48:59 PM
I stepped out of my comfort zone and made a quilt with BRIGHT colors.  My quilts are normally very subdued. Here are the results:

A closer up view:

A real close up view (I used the central fabric in choosing the rest of the fabrics - which is probably the only time I have actually used a "focus fabric"):

I ran short of my "focus fabric", so I substituted a dragonfly fabric for the remaining blocks:

I hope you enjoy this - comments are welcome!

54  Old jeans = new messenger bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Eowynt on: December 04, 2008 06:09:26 PM
I nabbed a pair of my beau's old jeans that didn't sell at the yard sale, cut them up, and made a new messenger bag.  It was an experiment, and I'm not sure it I really like it or not, and my dd doesn't care for the lining fabric. . .  I figure I'll have to put it to use to see if it is a keeper or not. 
With the flap down:

With the flap up:

and details:

Let me know what y'all think - I still haven't decided!

55  Pocket wallets in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Eowynt on: November 08, 2008 10:25:35 AM
I love making these little "wallets."  I use mine when I walk to the store and don't want to carry a purse.  You could also use them when out clubbing (they hold id, cards and a small amount of cash) - (I'm a little over the hill for the club scene - but I have memories of such things). They are also great to give as gifts, especially with gift cards inside. 

I had some scrap fabrics I didn't want to throw out, so I made these:

I have also made some from just regular fabric:

I gave the one with the Easter egg fabric to my daughter in her Easter basket - with a gift card inside.

These are really fast and fun to make - I hope you enjoy them

56  Charm pack placemats in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: October 22, 2008 01:34:32 PM
I made these as a gift for my sister. She has a house in the mountains where the extended family often vacations, so these fit into the mountain theme.  I also made matching coasters, but I forgot to photograph them.  The placemats look a little floppy because I took their pictures on my bed in the cabin after washing them (teenage boys are messy eaters!).  'Nuff said, on with the photos:

I cannot remember the "name" of the fabric line for the charm packs, but it's from Moda.  Hope you enjoy - please post comments!

57  Pastel Plaid table topper quilt from charm packs in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: September 30, 2008 11:07:52 AM
I really love those charm packs Moda and other companies are selling these days.  It is almost an addiction!  This is one of the first quilts I've made from charm packs. The fabrics look like either men's shirtings or boxers.  Either way, I love them. Hope you enjoy. . .

58  Log cabin quilt for Fall in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: September 23, 2008 11:02:57 AM
I love all the great log cabin quilts people have been doing.  I thought I'd share my own take on this with my fall table topper. 

Close up:

As you can see, this is a free form log cabin.  I just used up scraps I had from other quilts, so each strip is a different size (and some are angled).  A lot of the scraps came from a quilt I posted awhile ago:

Keep making and posting those great log cabins.

59  Scrappy tree quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: August 25, 2008 12:13:46 PM
I made this little quilt during the last Olympics (Athens) as I was glued to the set.  Watching Misty and Kerry (spelling) win volleyball gold again, reminded me of all the quilts I have worked on during past olympics.  Just thought I'd share this one with you. . .

. . . and yes that is a fake spider on the top of the quilt.  I think spiders are works of art (but I don't care for cobwebs - they fell icky and sticky when you touch them.

Comments welcome. . .

60  Half square triangle quilts. in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: July 06, 2008 03:05:42 PM
Athenamat posted a great tutorial on making half-square triangle blocks [see: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=255259.0] which reminded me of a series of quilts I made from half-square triangles I got in a series of swaps. I made at least 8   quilts using these blocks, and I thought you might like a peak at some of them.  These quilts pre-date digital photography, so I don not have pictures of all them (but I still have the quilts).

Here they are (I hope you like them):

I have at least 4 more of these, so I can post those (if you are interested) once I dig them up. . .
