11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: TM Patch Sewing Machine Cover on: June 21, 2016 01:55:58 PM
Such a great idea, I've always wanted to do TM patches, but I don't want them as a bag or book cover. I've really been thinking about doing something about my crappy sewing machine cover though, and this is great! (at least for the front, the back of my machine tends to be used as a general craft pile blocker, and might get abused)
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Punk rock loli pencil case 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/
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Space invading dice. Bag. Pouch. 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/

We don't have the same type of structure as you do. Though it may be possible to sneak by the same way using thinner envelopes. But you either send as fully tracked, big, expensive parcels, or you send as a letter (which I always do, but customs forms are still required)

Mine is showing, though I don't think anyone has received yet Smiley It's on its way though!

Well I guess the ones from me will take the longest for everyone to receive, so me answering is kind of moot Cheesy

Okay so you know how things work super well when you're tired? I think I might have just messaged ALL Y'ALL that I've sent. Except possibly homer, who I might have managed to remove first. Or I just sent it to sloth and the rest failed. Thing is I hit enter instead of backspace in the "to" field, and it decided that means send. Cheesy
