1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / SHEER FABRIC - IDEAS? on: July 20, 2008 06:01:28 PM
Hi!  I got this cool sheer fabric, and I have no idea what to do with it...any ideas???
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Smaller Purse...Help! on: June 20, 2008 06:41:40 PM
So I'm in a little bit of trouble.  Stuck trying to design a bag, can't find a tutorial and have had a few failed attempts.

Pretty much I want to make a small bag with a single wide handle with a zipper.  I have one in courdory (I think) and I love it and I'm trying to make another one out of black canvas.  Here is a picture of one that they are similar too (but this one doesn't have a zipper)  - - any suggestions on the pattern?  Probably just a tote with 4 smaller pieces.  I guess my trouble is trying to get it to fit with the zipper...  Since I'm a tote girl, this is new!


3  COOKING / Dessert / New Birthday Cake! on: May 31, 2008 08:53:43 AM
I'm not by any means a cake decorator...but I have made two cakes now with fondant and it's fun to play/work with.  Especially since I don't like cake...haha!  But here they are:



Well...only one, since I lost the other one somewhere...maybe I'll find it and post it!
4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Someone COPIED my idea and is selling it! on: May 01, 2008 02:22:19 PM
So I have this original idea - pattern, materials, etc that I created and have sold.  Now, somebody has copied it and has even copied some of the text from my website (changing a few slight words) so it wasn't exact and is selling it.  I have even sent a friendly message saying, hey, I noticed you've copied my idea, I don't mind if you make it for yourself or a few family members, but please don't sell my idea.  She replied back saying that she did copy my idea and there's nothing I can do about it...  Is she right?  Is there anything I can do?  If so, what can I do?
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Easy Brown Canvas Tote (Based on AE) on: April 10, 2008 01:19:20 PM
So, it's been a while since I made a bag for myself.  I saw this bag on AE and thought, I like it, but didn't need it to be changing from one type of bag to another (I wouldn't mind trying to make it though.)  And I also like a more boxy or square purse rather than unformed...but you'll see Smiley haha

My sewing machine wasn't being cooperative so I just left it as is for the pictures (inside picture will show what I mean...)  But I have since re-sewn the top Smiley  The flash also made it look lighter, it's darker brown canvas!  Here she be: 

Outside with a lil pocket for my cell phone:


Inside with cute camo fabric (love da hubby - in the army):


If anyone wants, I can make a lil tutorial, since I plan on making another bag like it.  Just let me know!

Also, if anyone knows how to resize these so I can make the pictures a bit smaller, please let me know! haha
