1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Clothesline Beach Bag!! (IMG heavy) on: January 14, 2010 01:14:18 PM
I first saw this method from the book "It's A Wrap" (http://www.amazon.com/Its-Wrap-Sewing-Fabric-Baskets/dp/156477662X).  So addicting. 

I took the bowl/bag idea a step further to create a huge beach bag (probably a little too big, but I just couldn't stop).  I was able to bring it on the plane as a carry on and put it under the seat in front of me.  

Turned out a little more 'watermelony' looking that I had hoped, but it's summery!!!

I wish I had pictures as i was doing it, when I got to the end of sewing it, my head was inside the bag just to hold it up....actually pretty challenging.

a little misshapen from storage...











Enjoy Smiley





2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Creative ways to incorporate patches? on: January 13, 2010 09:39:28 PM
So..posted this in a different area but realized that it probably makes more sense here (sorry!)

My grandfather passed away a month ago and in going through his things we found a box of patches (TONS) from various awards he has won throughout the years.

As a sort of remembrance for the family I wanted to make a quilt or something incorporating the patches in a crafty way but have not come up with any ideas yet  

So just asking (OK -- borderline begging...) if anyone can think of anything creative I can do, possibly even something other than a quilt; the quilt just came to mind first.  Any help you can give is greatly appreciated!!!   Cheesy
