1  Fully reversible grocery tote with matching zip pouch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by monkeybeans on: December 26, 2010 10:55:13 AM


I made a fully reversible grocery tote with boxed corners, an interior pocket and a coordinating zipper pouch - great for carrying your cash at the farmers market! I made the handles kinda hefty to accommodate lots of stuff without getting uncomfortable to hold. The print is a home dec weight cotton and the solid green is an IKEA sheet. The zipper pouch can be easily attached to the bag handle with a removable strap. The pouch is also fully lined and padded with fusible fleece so it can protect a small camera and/or phone as well as carry cash and cards.

For Christmas giving, this was filled with jars of homemade goodies and presented to a neighbor.





Happy crafting!

LOVE those fabrics. Too cute! I made a quilt using a slightly modified pattern from Oh, Fransson - the New Wave quilt. I made mine with all 30's reproduction prints and called it my Retro Wave quilt. I love the mix of a more modern pattern with the reproduction prints.




Have fun!

3  Wee little snappy pockets in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by monkeybeans on: September 17, 2010 11:39:38 PM
Made these little snappy pockets to take a break from zippers. One holds my hexie templates and has a divider. The other holds our library cards and is great to throw in a book tote before heading out to the library for storytime.







Thanks for taking a look!

4  Zippy Patchwork Pouch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by monkeybeans on: September 07, 2010 01:51:35 PM
I've been working really hard to get my zippers the way I want them and I think I'm finally making some progress! Any tips on how to get nice crisp corners with zips is always appreciated! Thanks for looking.
Blogged here. http://megsmonkeybeans.blogspot.com/2010/09/zippy-pouch-progress.html

5  Patchwork Bag with drawstring cover in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by monkeybeans on: September 01, 2010 11:40:36 PM


Made this from the tutorial over on Pink Penguin except I used patchwork instead of a plain fabric panel for the body of the bag. The lining and drawstring cover are made from a vintage pillowcase. Currently using this as my purse but made another for a friend to keep her knitting in. LOVE this bag!

6  First time stippling/free motion (pic heavy!) in Quilting: Completed Projects by monkeybeans on: June 17, 2010 01:37:52 PM


This was my very first attempt at free motion stippling a quilt. I was nervous that I would ruin the whole thing but it ended up being really fun!



Pattern is New Wave form Oh, Fransson. I made mine with a dresden ruler for smaller, skinnier waves.



LOVE how it came out of the dryer all crinkly and soft!



It's far from perfect but I will definitely be trying this kind of quilting again!

7  Charm quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by monkeybeans on: June 08, 2010 02:52:13 PM


Just finished this quilt last night! It's the first time I've made a quilt that uses so much solid fabric but I really like how it turned out. Thanks for looking!

8  Summer Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by monkeybeans on: June 06, 2010 02:46:33 PM


Just finished my summer bag and I love it! Fabric is from IKEA and you can just barely see the orange lining peeking out. The pattern in a free download from Oh, Fransson!

Seriously, making bags could become a HUGE problem for me. They're fun and compared to quilts (my regular sewing activity) they are so much faster. Plus, you end up with a NEW BAG!

9  I'm calling it my Fab Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by monkeybeans on: May 31, 2010 07:12:49 PM
Just finished this bag yesterday morning and I'm kind of in love with it. It's the first bag I've ever made and it's huge enough to carry around all my momma stuff (snacks, water bottles, first aid kit, camera) plus my regular stuff (wallet, cell phone, planning calendar). The print fabric and orange lining are from IKEA. The linen was from my fabric stash. It was also the first time I made my own fabric covered button. Completely fun project and I'm sure I'll make another one!

10  I Spy with My Little Eye in Quilting: Completed Projects by monkeybeans on: May 21, 2010 02:34:50 PM

Finally finished this twin size I Spy quilt for my little fella who turned four yesterday. There are something like 120 different fabrics used and each block has a "match" so that in addition to "spying" a certain thing the kiddos can also look for the matching block. Blocks are 4 inches square with a 4 inch border in red kona cotton. I used the invisible nylon thread for quilting and black thread in free motion swirls on the border (which you can't even see in the photo). It was fun to put together and I had enough of the various novelty fabrics left to make another smaller version for my daughter - who won't be getting it until Christmas.
