I bought these really, really comfortable jeans to take on vacation. Loved them. . .  only to discover that they are too short to wear any way but barefoot. . .  I also love long shorts - so I put my two and two together, and made Bermuda shorts.  As for the legs I cut off - I took inspiration from all you crafty Craftsters, and I made me a new purse to use with my new shorts!
Here is the front of the bag, with a small pocket:

It is a small purse, but I still loaded it up for dance class:

The other side of the purse:

The insides (when empty) There is a denim pocket you can't see:

62  Spring baskets in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: March 23, 2008 02:46:21 PM
It is spring, my favorite time of year, and I finally have a spring quilt for my walls.


It was inspired by a cakestand quilt I saw at a quilt shop in Brea, CA.

My friend, Claire, offered to buy - but I'd feel weird selling a quilt, I doubt I could sell if for anywhere near what it cost to make - besides, I'd miss it terribly.

Hope you like it.

63  2 Target tea towels = cupcake purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Eowynt on: January 27, 2008 07:05:14 AM
I went to Target the other day, and I fell in love with their Valentine's Day home decor items.  I bought a couple of tea towels, and came up with this:

Here is an inside shot:

And the back:

And this is a before shot.  I am really glad I pre-washed the towels because the pink one shrunk a TON:
Oh, a close up of the cupcake:

Thanks for looking - and thanks for all the inspiration!!

64  Valentine's day sampler quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: January 22, 2008 05:46:19 PM
Back in the dark ages before the internet, I belonged to an online bulletin board community of quilters on a bulletin board service called Prodigy.  I learned how to quilt through the generous assistance of these ladies from around the USA.  Think of it as Craftster without the pictures!!  Swaps were big then, too.  One of my favorite swaps was of 4" valentine blocks, some of which I turned into the following quilt:



Six of the blocks were from the swap, the rest are mine.
Hope you enjoy - feel free to comment!!

Thanks for the comments.  This is a work in progress made from the scraps of the other two quilts.  It still needs a binding and a little more quilting. . .

66  Red and white obsession in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: January 05, 2008 09:31:17 AM
My dental hygienist asked me if  I may have an addictive personality because I get these mini-obsessions. If a fabric addiction is the worst vice I have, I guess I can live with it!!
For awhile I really got into red and white fabric, so I just had to make a quilt, which turned into 2 quilts, and then a third.  Enough with the blather - on with the quilts.  There are probably over 50 different fabrics in the larger two quilts, but I haven't really counted.

I love hearts - they are not just for Valentine's day!

I should quilt the hearts more, but I moved on to another quilt. . .

I call the border "hugs and kisses" because the blocks form x's and o's - I am really proud of them.

This was quilt #2, when one red and white quilt wasn't enough.

A close-up shot.  We quilters like detail.


Thanks for letting me share my obsession - vices don't feel like vices when you share them with someone!!

68  Re: TUTORIAL: Straight Sided Triangular Cosmetic Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Eowynt on: November 29, 2007 10:04:33 PM
I finally got the nerve to try zippers - Zippers and I have a long history of disappointment (I used to sew most of my own clothes, and I had to rip out almost every zipper I sewed - that's a lot of zippers) - but this time everything worked with out my best bud the seam ripper.


I made this for my beau's youngest to go with a drawstring overnight bag I made her for Christmas.  She's been using grocery bags to hold her stuff when she has a slumber party.

69  Christmas wreath, log cabin quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: November 24, 2007 03:59:00 PM
While waiting for the turkey at my brother's, I finished the binding on this little quilt.  It measures apx. 11" x 11" - I started it when my daughter was 3 - she's now 16!!!  (I have a lot of UFO's).

Here are some close-ups:

Better late than never!!

70  Fat quarter addiction = baby quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: November 15, 2007 02:25:20 PM
I am sure I am not the only one with a fat quarter addiction.  I am running out of room for more fabric, so I decide to cut up part of my stash and make a quick baby quilt for a pregnant friend.  I thought I was choosing a gender neutral palate, but the quilt came out very girly.  Thankfully, the baby is a little girl named Paisley.  Fortuitously, there are paisleys in the quilt.  I had a little trouble using the basting spray and subsequent machine quilting, but I don't think the baby will mind the imperfections (especially considering what babies do to their blankies).


I am giving the mom the quilt at church Sunday.  I also made her a hold everything bag to go with:

The bag is made out of the backing fabric.  I used leftover material for the outside pocket to tie it in better with the quilt.
I hope my friend likes it - I did throw it together in a hurry.
