1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Amy Butler's Everything Bag on: November 01, 2008 01:47:31 PM
I just finished the "Everything Bag" in Amy Butler's newest book, Little Stitches for Little Ones.  The divider was sort of difficult to make and then sew around, but overall I really like this bag and it is MUCH more a useable size, than the Modern Diaper Bag that I made before. 

This bag has great deep pockets and room for whatever you want to carry around!

What do you think??

Lovely side pockets:

Lots of pockets on the inside:

It can fit over your shoulder, but is a bit snug:

This is the Modern Diaper Bag from Amy Butler's new book "Little Stitches for Little Ones."  It turned out wayyyy bigger than I wanted, but oh well, it was a fun learning experience since this was my first bag.  I thought the pleats on the inside were pretty difficult to do and I didn't add the cell phone pocket.  Hope you like it!

3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Why Baste? on: August 30, 2008 07:38:27 PM
Just wondering why I would want to baste edges as opposed to pin them.  I recently followed a pattern that said to baste a few edges and I had never done that.  I read that basting is just to hold things in place, but don't you have to go back and tear the stitches out?

To me it seems like it would take longer than just pinning, so can anyone tell me what the advantages are?  Does it just keep things cleaner and less bulky than tons of pins?
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Snuggie Wrap Blanket on: August 30, 2008 07:32:07 PM
Look what I did this weekend!  A friend is having a baby at the end of October, so I made the little one this warm Snuggie Wrap Blanket.  The pattern is from Amy Butler's new book "Little Stitches for Little Ones."

I got the material at JoAnn's.  The brown polka dot is flannel and the inside is blue fleece.

Hope you like it!

5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Loose Back-stitch?? on: August 01, 2008 09:30:07 PM
Hi! This is my first post and am not exactly new to sewing, but still have a lot to learn.

I have an old Singer 237 Model and last week I got it cleaned and oiled.  Now the thread on the back side of the stitch is loopey.  Here is a link to a picture of what I am talking about.  Any idea of what is going on or how I can fix it? Thanks!
