61  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Not sure if this belongs here . . . Reversible Napkins! on: February 21, 2010 03:39:22 PM
Well, I thought I would be green and thrifty, and use up some of the larger leftover pieces of fabric to make cloth napkins for the family. 

Here they are:

Cars and trucks for my son:

Dragonflies and bunnies for my daughter:

Chilis and bad-danna fabric for me and DH:

And lastly, blueprint reversing to stripes (not for anyone in particular):

And then a pic of them folded so that they show off both sides, which is one of the things I like about making them reversible!:

Thanks for looking!! Cheesy
62  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Slouch bag for SIL on: February 11, 2010 03:21:39 PM
Okay - so here is my slouch bag for my SIL that I made from stripwork - I really like it and am tempted to keep it for myself . . .

The whole bag:

Close up of the fabrics used:

Lining (with wallet to weight it down some):

Butterflies in the pocket!!

Sorry for the blurriness of some of the photos - don't know why I couldn't get a clear shot of the interior. Huh

Thanks for looking!
63  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / New Polka-Dotty Slouch Bag on: February 11, 2010 07:25:30 AM
So here is my newest creation - the Slouch Bag!

I got the pattern from youcanmakethis.com, and have wanted to try it for a while.  I am going to make one from stripwork for my SIL, but wanted to try it out first so I could work out the bugs.

Here is the inside with the happy, bright orange lining:

And the Zipper pocket - gotta have a zip pocket!!

Thanks for looking!  I'll post my SIL's bag when I get it done, too. Smiley
64  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Three twirl skorts for my girly tomboy! (Action shots response #5) on: February 09, 2010 04:56:34 AM
I bought the tutorial from Youcanmakethis.com - twirl skorts!

Butterflies over dragonflies!

For valentine's day coming up:

Ariel!  My dd picked out the fabrics for this on from my stash:

The shorts underneath are actually ruffled bloomers, so they look like another layer of skirt underneath.  Pretty, but still keeping my daughter from showing off her undies when she hangs upside-down from the monkey bars!

Thanks for looking! Grin
65  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Thought I'd share my teacher gifts this year . . . on: December 13, 2009 07:11:13 PM
Since I found our water bottle carriers to be so useful (and cute!), I thought I'd make some for the kids' teachers this year.  I let them pick the outside fabric (the inside is all the same - a white on tan snowflake pattern - forgot to take a pic!), and then made strips of an off-white fabric that I let them draw on with fabric markers to personalize them a bit.

Here they are:

Slightly different angle:

And with one of the artists posing for posterity  Grin:

I put new water bottles in each, with a packet of one of those drink mixes made for water bottles, and wrapped them up.  Hope they like them!

Thanks for looking!  Any comments and/or critiques welcome!

Oh - and it's the same tute I used in my previous post about these - you can look it up - I can't remember the tute ATM . . .
66  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Luigi (of Mario Brothers fame) and a camoflage jet airplane! on: October 31, 2009 06:17:19 PM
So, after making these largely fleece costumes for my kids, it's 80 degrees(!) on Halloween night!  They wore slightly altered versions of these for actual trick-or-treating . . .


- I hadn't yet put another elastic thread on the right hand glove, so it's a bit floppy - I fixed it for Halloween!

Jet Airplane:

This is where you can see the cute boy wearing the costume (not that I'm biased or anything . . . )


Coming in for a landing:

You can really see in this pic the reflective tape I put on the back so that cars would be able to see him . . . turned out not to matter - we were out mostly when it was still light out!

Thanks for looking!!

67  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Family water bottle holders (Now with tute links and D-ring pics in post #10) on: September 01, 2009 07:00:07 PM
I made a couple of these for my parents as gifts, but hadn't gotten around to making them for us . . . then took the family to an amusement park and borrowed the ones I'd made my parents - SOOO useful!  So I finally got around to making them for us!

Here they are:

From R to L - for me, my DD, my DH, and my DS.  I didn't do the Dora fabric right - I turned it so there were 2 upright Dora's and one upside-down . . . didn't think about the fact that the upside-down one would be front and center!  Oh, well . . .

Mine and DH's hanging up

The kids' ones hanging - see the right-side-up Dora?   Cheesy

Thanks for looking!

68  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Sushi bag for my hubby on: June 27, 2009 06:53:00 PM
Well, I made my dh a bag for father's day, but it was apparently too small for his intended purposes.  So I made him a new one with this really cool sushi fabric!

The whole thing:

I put a zip pocket in one of the sides:

It's a little crooked, but still gets the job done!

Spacebots lining for the zip pocket  Cheesy :

And Buggs Bunny to go on the inside of the main compartment:

Comments and critiques are welcome - thanks for looking!! Grin
69  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / father's day gifts (links to tutorials in post #3) on: June 10, 2009 05:13:58 PM
Hi all!

Here are a couple of things I made for my dad and my hubby for father's day:

For my dad - a water bottle holder, made from the tute that Little Me made hers from.  I'll see about posting a link later - I'm in  a rush now:

another view:

And for my hubby - he requested a bag that could hold his shoes and something else for workouts, etc:

Pocket lining picked out by my dd:

Inside lining:

edit 6-13-09: sorry to remove the pics, but my dh, who rarely looks at our flickr account, is about to add some photos to it this weekend, so I needed to take them down for a while.  I'll put them back after f's day!

okay - again on 6-13 . . . I took the pics off my flickr site, but they're still here . . . If you see them, sorry to confuse you.  If not, the above explains why! Huh

70  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Quilt for my son - all his favorite stuff! on: March 14, 2009 06:16:55 AM
So I just finished a small quilt for my 6yo son, and let him pick the fabrics from my stash. 

Here is the whole thing:

Can you tell that his favorite color is yellow? Cheesy

Here's a pic a little bit closer that shows all the different fabrics (plain yellow, yellow with nuts and bolts, black cats, bicycles, bulldozers, tools, blueprints, star wars and baseballs:

And here are a few that show the different fabrics a bit closer:

He used it to sleep with last night, so it's a bit more wrinkled and linty than it might be otherwise.  It would still be a bit wrinkly, as I was not terribly careful with putting it together Tongue.  But he loves it, and that's what counts!

the back is just yellow fleece that I had to piece together, as I didn't have a big enough piece in the stash.  Everything is from the stash, so it essentially cost me nothing!  I need to make another like it . . . not with the same fabrics, but just using stuff from the stash - nice and economical.  (And it makes room for me to buy more cute new fabric! Wink)
