11  My new purse also my first project with a pattern (3 pics) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Jeenome on: August 28, 2008 03:01:41 PM
I actually finished sewing something from a pattern! I love this purse and it is so much nicer than my old one. I did modify the pattern a bit so the handle can be removed so I can wash the purse. I also used different handles that were called for because I don't like the look of the bamboo one. This is Simplicity 5151 bag A with a couple modifications. Instead of sewing the handles between the front fabric I sewed it together and then folded it down and then added snaps to hold the handles on. I also added the ribbon for added security in case the snaps com undone. Plus the ribbon is cute. Smiley The button closure was a last minute addition because I thought it needed a way to be kept closed.

12  My first dresses! Way easy but I did it. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Jeenome on: August 26, 2008 12:21:24 PM
In my effort to learn to sew I am taking it very slowly. Smiley These dresses were the one seam kind.  Grin I bought the already scrunched fabric and sewed them up they didn't even need a seam on the bottom. I love them! They are super comfy and soft. They can be worn as skirts too if you fold them down and wear and long shirt. I added the ribbons for straps too.

The ribbon can be used as a halter tie or left as is or tied into a bow for cuteness.

This one has regular straps so I can wear it with a bra and therefore out in public. I need a bra. Wink

What do you guys think?

13  My first sucessful sewing project a makeup bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Jeenome on: August 26, 2008 12:14:43 PM
I have been learning slowly how to sew. My first bag project was utter failure so I decided to make one up as I went along. I didn't have a bag for my makeup so I figured that was a good place to start. The pockets aren't quite right and one is too high and one piece of velcro ended up very crooked but I like it. It does its job and is cute. Smiley And it means I finished something.

14  My first throw pillow in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Jeenome on: August 19, 2008 10:45:47 AM
To make myself feel better I'm going to post my first completed sewing project. I covered a small throw pillow for my son. He saw the rainbow fabric and fell in love. The boy loves color so this was just the thing. To make it more fun I made tassels and sewed them into the corners. He has made it his chicken's pillow. He sleeps with a giant Easter chick he named chicken that evidently needed a pillow.

15  My coffee cinnamon bath salts in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by Jeenome on: July 28, 2008 08:34:55 PM
I made some of the coffee cinnamon bath salts last night and the smell is divine! I got the recipe from this post  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=645.0 and I love it! It was very east to do. Th color of mine is a bit lighter but I don't care. Smiley I only put it in freezer bags because I'm going to keep it. So here is a pic of my version.

16  Wire wrapped bead pendants **now with a better pic** in Beads: Completed Projects by Jeenome on: July 25, 2008 11:21:18 AM
I had never done this before last night but I was bored and had beads and wire so......  Grin I really like how they turned out but the red one is my favorite. The pictures are a bit blurry but its the best my phone would do. My camera is in the car and the car is at work with my husband so phone pics it is.  Wink I'll try to get better ones this evening when hubby comes home.

A new pic where you can actually see them Smiley

17  Lamp shade makeover and repair in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Jeenome on: July 23, 2008 01:59:59 PM
This is my first finished project post so hopefully I am putting it in the right place.

I wish I had a pic of this lamp shade before I fixed it but I don't. It had completely fallen off its frame. So, I reattached it by basically sewing it back on with fishing line. I poked a row of holes around the top edge with a fondue fork Cheesy and sewed the fishing line through the holes. Then I decoupaged it with colored construction paper. Each side is totally different but I think its cool that way. Smiley This is my husband's bedside lamp so I did mine to match. None of the eight sides match though. I am mostly done but I want to add something on top of the paper to soften up the harshness a bit, I was almost thinking some sheer white fabric but I'm not sure. Any ideas? I am also going to finish up the edges better but I want to add whatever it is I'm going to add first. Sorry about the nightstand junk in the pic I forgot to move it.  Shocked

The repair. (This is the best pic I could get)
