1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Re: some diaper cuts i've embroidered on: April 19, 2008 07:09:51 PM
I love the cloth diapers.  Way to go.  Keep those disposables out of the garbage and landfills!!!  What a great way to make them personal.  What kind of fabric are you using for the diaper covers?  Do you sew on velcro?
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: TUTORIAL: Singlet Style Shopping Bag (like the plastic shopping bag) on: April 19, 2008 09:59:59 AM
I just made another shopping bag with the regular size handles.  I used a colorful unused pillowcase that came with a sheet set from a thrift store.  I made a "scrub top" from part on one of the sheets for my daughter, but have lots of fabric left.  It took one pillowcase to make the lined shopping bag.  I pieced some of the scraps from the leftover scraps between the handles to make an outside pocket, and a smaller inside pocket.  2nd one went faster, but still took me 1 3/4's hour.  That was after taking all the stitching out of the original pillowcase first.  I am sure I can get the time faster, especially if I made 2 at once. This one is going for a birthday gift.  Thank you so much for the person that did such great pictures.  I also located the simple way to fold the bag up, that is probably easier than stuffing it into the pocket, but the pocket is very nice for whatever needs arises.   My daughter thought the pocket was a great place for the shopping list!!  : )

I just made a shopping bag.  I made the handles longer, and added a couple of inside pockets to put carkeys, cell phones etc. inside the bag.  You never know what the bag could end up being used for.  Thank you so much for the great directions.  I used the same fabric for both sides (using what I had on hand of course.  I am thinking of trying to make one out of denim from old jeans for one side.
