1  Purse Binge. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by CoffeaBean on: September 04, 2010 09:44:49 AM
So I've had a sewing machine for years, always intimidated me a bit. Anyways, I recently got her out and started making some purses (as I'm still terrified of clothes!). So I started with a McCall's pattern (6045)! What was I thinking?! Well the first one came with a ton of issues, and took me a month, but after trying it again I whipped it up in a good two days. This thing called for 3 different types of interfacing, making my own binding tape. Needless to say I learned so much making this bag.





I next chose a Simplicity pattern (2396), it was such a breeze and fun to make.

A photo with my doggy, she has to be the center of everything!


Well thanks for looking, the goal is to get a lot better at sewing, so C&C's welcome!

2  Green Tea Cake in Dessert by CoffeaBean on: July 06, 2010 12:15:31 PM
I was in the mood to try something new, when I stumbled on this Green Tea Cake recipe, and just new I had to try it! I couldn't find the powdered green tea the recipe called for, so as the review suggested, I attempted to powder my own, however, I don't think I powdered them enough they were still "grainy". But after sitting in the fridge overnight it was delicious!





Oh, and the recipe can be found here.  Grin

3  Who needs sleep, when you have Coffee! Stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by CoffeaBean on: June 27, 2010 08:15:50 PM
Cross Stitching for some reason always terrified me! One day I felt very courageous and just decided to give it a try, after being inspired by all the wonderful post on this site Grin.
So this is my third and biggest project so far. I found a picture on the internet and opened it up in paint and blocked it out myself (hence there isn't any shading, lol). Now on to the hard part, the framing!!




Thanks for looking!

Edit:

Finally in a frame!
