221  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: True Blood Swap Round 5: Sign Ups June 20- July 5, SO August 8 on: June 27, 2011 08:34:08 PM
I really liked them. Thankfully last season I got over the need to compare them to the books so now I can just watch it for what it is. I love it!! Eric's "we're always more than happy to serve humans for dinner at Fangtasia, and I don't mean for dinner" was the best line in the show!  Grin

So seeing as I'm new to this, I have two questions. What do the points stand for? I mean I get that it has to do with the items sent but how? And do we pick the partners once the joining is done or does the person putting together the swap do it? Thanks.

Would you believe I found that black and pink fabric at goodwill! There are about 4 yards of it and I paid something like five dollars for it. Thanks for the awesome compliments.

Very cute!!! Smiley I'm completely new to sewing and have been messing around with patterns for bags and totes and whatnot but decided I need to start small. Hmm maybe a wallet would be the way to go:)

It's such an easy start, and could give you ideas for bags when you mix and match fabrics.

So I have been wanting to make a wallet for sometime but all the seemed so complicated so I couldn't make myself add that on top of all my other projects. See I'm not great with zippers, the one in this is only my second or third, but this wallet was soooo easy!! All thanks to ShannyAnn and her awesome tutorial. It is the cause for my wallet craziness. I'm planning to make one for my aunts birthday using pre-quilted fabric, I'll do my best to post about how that one comes out too. I will have to remember next time to use interfacing on the flap too seeing as I used a snap instead of Velcro. All in all, from cutting to the final ironing it took about two/two & a half hours.

The outside &/or closed


Opening with coin pocket, six card slots and two larger pockets for bills or what have you


Oh, I do want to make a comment for any others that saw my summer purse post that Sophie was again helping me with this one aka sleeping on the left over fabric, if I hadn't been in the middle of cutting I would have taken a picture.


C & C welcome
Thanks for checking out the post!

I have found myself unhappy with all the purses I have, which happens from time to time so my way fixing this is to make a new one and using this patter http://www.made-by-rae.com/2009/02/free-buttercup-bag-sewing-pattern.html  I made a cute summer bag. The fabric is called tutti-fruiti, I got it as remnants from Jo-Ann Fabrics. To go with it I made a small coin purse using an awesome tut http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EICadoBCC1s&feature=share



This is my cat Sophie, helping me cut out fabric

Thanks to Rae, and Soreribsin for the patterns and tutorials.

So I did make one and I know think every bag I make will get one too. Because it is amazing. I did add a flap over the top so that you couldn't see them from the outside and to make sure they didn't fall out if it turned upside down. Here are mine and again thanks so much for posting the measurements! Sorry if the pictures aren't great, they were taken with a phone.

They are links because I'm still too new to post pictures, still hope you give them a look.

Having just made a knitted needle role where I had the same problem, this might be helpful. What I did was flap over the top so anything that did slide out hit that flap, you could do one just at the top of each side, or one on each pocket. Also that was the last piece I put up and if you use two pieces, sew it together, flip it then do a slip stitch and finish it by sewing the flap on it still has that finished look without it seeming like an add on. I hope that makes sense.

I'm not a tea drinker, but this holder is very cute and I may try something like it for a friend, which I had never thought to do. So Thanks!

I so agree with not spending that much when you could make it and this is so cute!! I'm making a bag and wallet right now and am pretty sure I have enough left from those to make one of these. Thanks! Grin
