11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Goomba Bag on: July 31, 2011 06:04:54 AM
I made this for a swap and was really pleased with how it turned out. I haven't done in kind of needlework in many, many years. And I did the bag without a pattern (which is a big deal for me because I'm a new sewer).

12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Totes w/matching journals for teachers. on: May 27, 2011 05:48:48 AM
My 7 and 9 year old helped me sew these cute little totes for their teachers. And I had some extra fabric, so I made them fabric journal covers.
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tote for friend who loves coffee. on: May 01, 2011 12:31:49 PM
I made this for a friend for her birthday. I love this fabric. I am a fairly new sewer, but the pattern was easy to follow.
14  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Handprint Turkey Shirts on: November 24, 2010 01:52:44 PM
Made these today with the kids. Very simple and no sewing involved. We used Heat n Bond Ultra. It was my first time using this brand and I really liked it. I got the idea from this blog:
15  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Cinnamon Applesauce Ornament Gift Pack on: November 24, 2010 08:07:56 AM
I went to the Dollar Tree yesterday to get cinnamon to make applesauce cinnamon ornaments with the kids yesterday. When I was there I saw some cute Christmas tea towels. I thought they would make cute little bags to hold the ornament supplies. And also be a nice little inexpensive gifts for friends/family with children that would enjoy making the ornaments together. I used the individual applesauce cups (so the applesauce wouldn't need to be measured) a cookie cuuter and the dough recipe. Also pictured are the ornaments we made last night.

Thanks for the kind words. To make the dough, just mix equal parts of applesauce and cinnamon. I gave each child a 4 oz tub of applesauce and a heaping 1/2 cup of cinnamon. Just mix well.  If dough is too moist add a little cinnamon and if too dry add a little more applesauce. Start mixing w/a spoon then use your hands. Roll 1/4" thick and cut w/cookie cutter. Use a straw to make the hole for hanging. Let dry for 3-4 days or you can dry in oven at low temp.
For the bag, I cut the towel in half and did a roll hem at the top edge. Then I sewed the 2 long sides together with a french seam and sewed in the white ribbon that the bag is tied with in the seam. Then I hand sewed (because of the pom-pom's) the bottom straight across. It took me longer to figure out how I wanted to do it than anything!
16  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Thread catcher, pattern weights and pin cushion on: November 23, 2010 05:56:04 AM
I am a new sewer. I bought myself an inexpensive machine last year and really enjoy playing around with it. I saw a pic someone had posted of a thread catcher. I had never seen one before, but my dining room where I sew had little bits of thread all over the floor and table. What a wonderful idea Grin. So I made one w/some scrap fabric I had on hand. And then I saw pattern weights and made some of those too and I figured I should have a matching wrist pin cushion, so I recovered it w/the owl fabric too!

17  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / ? about my first rag quilt on: October 23, 2010 05:47:57 AM
I am going to make my 2 kids each a rag quilt. I purchased my flannel and am ready, but have 1 important question. Should I wash my flannel before making the quilt or wait and wash after assembled? I have seen contradicting instructions and need advice from those who frequently make these. Thanks  Smiley
