1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / A Note Tablet Portfolio on: August 21, 2013 04:06:57 PM
I made a portfolio recently for a job interview I had. I think it came out pretty good with some minor flaws that I have to work out for next time. You can read about it here: http://faithepp.blogspot.com/2013/08/a-note-tablet-portfolio.html

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / A Bag Pouch on: August 21, 2013 03:38:27 PM
Something I made couple of days ago - it's the fanny pack concept, but not. It just big enough to hold my pursellet, phone and camera. You can read more about it here: http://faithepp.blogspot.com/2013/08/a-bag-pouch.html

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / CD Visor Holder on: January 11, 2013 08:49:51 AM
I got some new CD's for Christmas and thought to make a visor holder. I didn't want "straight" pockets, so I made mine semi-circular.



You can read more about this on my blog: http://faithepp.blogspot.com/2013/01/cd-visor-holder.html

Thank you!
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / A New Bag on: April 02, 2012 08:16:40 AM
For several years now when spring arrives, I make myself a new bag. This year, I looked at my old bags for inspiration and this is what I came up with:
I really like the contrast between the black with the red and the print I used just fit where it should. My only problem is that the black fabric attracts lint - anyone know how to avoid that? Rubbing a dryer sheet or putting it damp in the dryer didn't work. I hate walking around with lint on my bag.


I even made a matchy pursellet:


This is the inspiration I used. I made this bag years before I got into designing and I realized that I really like this. The printed part was a fabric place mat and the solid part came from a woman's gaucho pants - all from a thrift store.

Thanks for looking!  Grin
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / A New Scarf on: March 13, 2012 07:55:42 PM
Even tho the cold season is ending (trying to at least over here), I needed a new scarf so I whipped this out in about 3 evenings. I used a #19 needle with a #4 and #5 yarn.



Here is a close up of the stitches:


I knitted (garter stitch) with both at the same time alternating between the 2 yarns.

It's very soft and warm, I like the wispyness of the orange yarn. What do you think?
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Sewing Machine Cover on: February 12, 2012 07:00:11 PM
**Not sure where this fit, so I put it here**

My sewing machine lives in a cold basement. When being serviced recently, it was recommended that I cover my machine when not in use. I decided to make a lazy patch work cover. Basically, I measured my machine and cut out the dimensions from muslin. To try it for fit, I sewed it together and tried it on and it was a pretty good fit. I ripped out the stitches, ironed on some fusible web and went to town with all my scraps (I can tell you what I made from each of those pieces). Each piece was randomly placed, the only thing that I planned was measuring and cutting pieces to fit, like a jig saw puzzle. I zig zagged around EACH patch - even if the neighbor patch had stitched it. For the lining, I took some brown fabric, spray glued on some insul-brite and quilted it on. I love how it came out and it fits real well.

7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Origami Nativity on: January 04, 2012 01:39:33 PM


My friend always gives me something handcrafted, and this year, she found a book on origami and made this. She said that there was no Joseph, so she modified Mary and added a staff. I think this is pretty good and plan to put this out every Christmas.
8  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Homemade Glycerin Soap on: July 31, 2011 09:14:04 AM
I made my own soap using the glycerin method. I followed http://www.marthastewart.com/335074/fruit-and-herb-soaps-how-to (watch the video 1st if you haven't seen this technique). This is my result:



The dark things are mushed up lavender flowers - I added lemon essential oil. Next time, I'll include un mushed lavender flowers, so people can tell what's in it. I used the soap last night & it works well (the lavender made my wash cloth dark, but it washed out). Here is another shot:



I'm so glad I didn't get rid of the soap molds I've been collecting. This so easy to do, I'm going to try this w/other herbs & fruit peels.
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Stuffed Chair Tissue Box Cover on: July 29, 2011 03:46:45 PM
Ok, here is the stuffed chair tissue box cover:





I'm not sure I like how it looks. The box is taller than it is wide so the chair looks funny - I thought I had the cushion measurement right, but maybe not. The cushion was hard to make - I jordy'd (boxed) the corners to make it look like a chair. I spray glued about 6 layers of fleece together for the cushion, a piece of foam would've been much easier, but I didn't have any. Attaching was hard cuz I not only hot glued it on, but went back to stitch it between the layers and the center hole for the tissue had to be done 1st, so I couldn't seperate the 2. I put too much glue so it was hard to stitch, bent several needles.

I was trying to think of other types of chairs to make, but couldn't think of any. What do you guys think? About this and other possible chairs to make.

Thanks.
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Sofa Tissue Box Cover & Toilet Paper Roll Cover on: July 14, 2011 04:11:43 PM
I had a lady who wanted a sofa tissue box cover in blue floral fabric so this is what I made:



After giving it to her, she then asked if I make toilet paper roll covers & I said, "Sure I do" even tho I've never made one before, but have made other things in that shape, so I did the measurements & here it is:



I've been debating on if I should put some kind of handle or grabby thing at the top to make it easy to remove, but I don't know. What do you think?
