1  Punk rock loli pencil case in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Melladh on: June 19, 2016 02:04:14 PM
So I chose the zipper first. I have these in all colors. Sometimes you have to use colors that aren't your style. This is one of those "use your stuff, don't overthink it" times. I think the mild mannered punk rock bits just happened to counter balance the baby pink lace.







I simply cut some strips, sewed them together into a tube, then cut the tube and offset the bits, opening up the tubes standard quilter fashion. Quilted with some stiff stuff and a nice backing fabric, then sewed the zipper-edges nicely shut like I was making a mug rug. Cheesy

I did the ends of the zipper, then hand sewed that entire thing to the "mug rug". Then I cut some discs, quilted them, cut the seam allowance to fit them in, and pushed them in with the raw edges out. Sewed them on, then just attached some edging. Which SHOULD have been bias edging, that'd have resulted in a much cleaner look. But oh well. I didn't want to waste the fabric, lol. I'm pretty happy with it either way, and I've got a nice pencil case out of it! So now I don't drag my coloring pens around one-by-one, hoping the cat won't steal them. (she steals anything she can carry - bag clamps, receipts, dice...)

There's a full write up with photos here if you're interested: https://melladh.wordpress.com/2016/06/14/my-inner-loli-punk-rock-pencil-case/

2  Space invading dice. Bag. Pouch. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Melladh on: June 19, 2016 01:53:40 PM
Boyfriend has been wanting a dice bag for quite some time, and eventually, with the statement "I have to buy a dice bag so I won't buy another card box...", I got around to making one!







It's a simple construct of a single square of fabric for the main bag. About 12.5'' square cut out, then sewn around with right sides together. Cut the corners, sewed three of them shut, and turned right side out, then pushed inside corners into outside corners, to square off a bag.
Then I made another, far thinner tube, and sewed that to the bag for a draw string tunnel.

If you want more pictures or a full write up on the process, I put all the details in this post (and I'm too lazy to write it again): https://melladh.wordpress.com/2016/06/19/dice-invasion-bag/

6  Re: Quilt Block Swap Round 9 (Signups thru Feb 14; sendouts April 18) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by Melladh on: February 07, 2016 12:33:13 PM
you won't be down for the entire craft time. c'mon. you know you want two groups you can be sick forever. Wink

You say that, but it's been five years now Cheesy (I exaggerate - I'm usually fine. But careful. Tongue )
I DO want two groups, but I also want to try the god damn paper piecing hell things without panicking (because it's interesting! c'mon!), and get started on fixing the windows, and wallpapering, and playing some games, and being away over easter, and the whole full time job commuter thing, and maybe even sleeping every now and then. Cheesy If I could still live off of a strict diet of carbs and caffeine, I'd do it, but that only seems to make me MORE sick now. Lol I'm aging T_T

On the bright side, I did the thing! I'm writing up a pattern now. Well.. I'm over here ranting. But... I'm ALMOST writing up the pattern. I've got a blog tab open and everything.

Look, I'm not crazy:

I'm getting help with the quilt center Cheesy



Some blocks are half an inch short, and some almost half an inch too large, but it's working out with some slight sloppyness Smiley

Sent! 30sek postage each was added to the two I had in both groups, but it says 6St (pcs) at least Cheesy no idea why it says domestic, but it's just a value anyway, domestic or international stamps don't make a difference.
