1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Great Granny Project Bag on: February 26, 2015 09:47:25 AM
I used this tutorial http://emmalinebags.blogspot.com/2013/02/free-purse-tutorial-great-granny-bag.html
If you make this bag and you have a directional print you need to cut the pattern in half and add seam allowance or one side of the bag print will be upside down. Thankfully I noticed before I cut my fabric.
It is huge and expandable, if I knit or crochet it would be the perfect big project bag. I will probably never use it I just wanted something to do with the rings I have had forever. I will put it in the future present, swap possibility box. Everything was stash including the vintage thread I used.

Just a simple pleated tote from some vintage linen and warm and natural batting, it has a zip pocket inside and a key leash.
I used this tutorial.

Please excuse my messy sewing room.

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Quilted Bowl Holders on: January 08, 2015 09:01:30 AM
I never knew these existed till I saw some lemon print ones in a swap on Craftster. I used fabric from my stash ( probably at least 10 yrs old fabric ) and vintage cotton thread, plus cotton batting. I intended for them to be a gift but once the Hubby saw them he pulled the you never make me anything card and insisted he had to have them. We do eat a lot of stews and soups, so I have already started on a new set.
 
I would put a link to a tutorial but I cannot remember where I saw it. No worries though just Google bowl holder tutorials there are a lot.

I made swaddling blankets,mitered receiving blankets,burp cloths,wash cloths and sleep sacks.

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Powder Crystal Decanter Into Pincushion on: October 31, 2014 01:50:19 PM
I needed a covered pincushion, so I used an old powder decanter. I made a round boxed mini pillow with a vintage jet button in the center.


6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Machine Covers on: September 11, 2014 02:18:48 PM
Slowly but surely getting my sewing room together, between projects and spur of the moment whims. I have enough of this fabric for a valance and pincushion and some buckets.
I made a total of 4 covers, industrial, embroidery, serger and domestic machine.

I took an 24" old canvas that was painted and covered it with fabric added  hemmed
pockets and two buttons. Stapled it the frame with a staple gun. Everything was in my stash.

I made this with a gauze type fabric,all seams serged. It has a keyhole back with 2 button closure. I had trouble getting the facing to fit so i had to redraft it.




10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / 3 Bubble Guppie Toddler Bibs on: July 11, 2014 10:02:20 AM
My Grandson is 20 months old and learning how to use silverware, which means he makes a mess of himself if I don't strip him down to his training pants. I got the fabric at Joann's and I used left over blackout curtain fabric for the back so they are waterproof. 3 bibs 1 yard fabric, free pattern from the web. They work really well.
Does anyone know a good place to get a pattern for little boy undies, he is already almost potty trained?
