1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Triangualar sided bag on: December 06, 2009 04:46:48 PM
Hey everyone! a while back I found this awesome tutorial (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?opic=176509.0) on how to make this adorable little bag... well the project has been bugging me for a while and I finally found the perfect opportunity to try it out! I picked this awesome girl at work who LOVES tinkerbell, so here it is!





To complete the gift, I bought a tinkerbell bookmark and card game, as well as this adorable little nail file I found in a boutique!

Happy Holidays everyone and thanks for looking!
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My First Quilt! on: July 07, 2009 07:25:27 AM
Hey guys! So this is my first quilt. I asked a friend of mine who does a lot of sewing if she could come by and help me get started. She came by this weekend and showed me a few tricks (which I will not be using on my next project 'cause I can't sew a LONG straight line, just short ones), how to cut the material and assemble and all that good stuff.

So here it is, I know it's imperfect and the lines don't square up, but I really like it anyway and it's a just a cute little size!

first completed square!


Tadaa! There it is! I ran out of pink binding, so I used a long leftover strip of matching marerial to make the last side's binding.


Since I changed my mind on the size near the end (because I corners were so off, I didn't feel like I should put in the effort for the decorative middle I was thinking about), I covered an ugly pillow I had to match the little quilt!

The whole thing is just right for when I read on the couch, little pillow to prop my book on and little quilt to cover the chest and arm Smiley Sorry, no action shots this time!

Let me know what you think! Smiley

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Lunch bag & Place Mat on: January 28, 2009 12:25:43 PM
Hey everyone! I got a new sewing maching 2 weeks ago and have been practicing before doing stuff for others... well here is my fist Completed Craft, a reusable-style Lunch bag with matching place setting! I asked the girl to pick out her material, all in all it took about 1/2 yard of each material to complete the set.


When you open up the rolled placemat (with handy closing ties!) you find a nifty little pouch to put your silverware!


I don't claim to have invented anything here, but I am so happy with the way they turned out, I think I'm going to make myself a whole set for everyday of the week! hehehhe...

Please feel free to comment, I love constructive critisism!

4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Mini Animal Stockings on: December 17, 2008 02:03:59 PM
Wow! My first post! This is my first holiday craft project. I decided to make personalised stocking for all the girls at the store where I work. I asked them all what their favorite animal was and two favorite colors. I poked around Google Images to find basic animals I could use, made all my patterns and Taa Daa! Everything is hand sewn, except the pompoms that are glued on and the names in glitter glue... I would love any comments, have a great day!

The zebra and giraffe are my personal favorites, even though I am an outspoken cat lover! Smiley

Happy Holidays!
