1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: My New Year's week project on: January 05, 2009 06:03:01 AM
That came out great! I love this pattern, and want to make it myself someday.

That is so bright and cheerful! I love how it looks on that bed. Next time your husband makes a comment like that, you can tell him he doesn't know what he's talking about, and you've got proof!

Thank you everybody!  Grin

Madamq, I'll try to get a picture of the inside soon. It is pretty big!

DragonFly4, I actually used the exact interfacing as in the pattern. If you're using a quilting weight fabric, I definitely think you can use a heavier weight interfacing for that part.

Thank you everyone!

Thought I'd also mention - I found the pattern to be so well written and easy to follow! There is a lot going on, with the pleats, and curved edges to sew, but I didn't have any problems with this. I have been sewing for years, off and on, but hardly ever follow a real pattern. I will definitely use more of Amy Butler's patterns - I've got 2 cousins graduating from high school this spring, and someone has already suggested these bags would be a great gift! I might use a different pattern, just for a change of pace.

That's so cute - I also love how you did the strap.

That is really cute! I love the pleats!

Thanks everyone!

Craftastrophe - the blue one was hard, my cousin didn't actually know she was getting it, so I had to guess as to what colors to use. She said it was her favorite gift though, so I'd call that a win!

ABarrios, the pattern is Amy Butler's Birdie Sling. You can see all her patterns http://www.amybutlerdesign.com/products/patterns_top.php.

Solitaire- Thank you! I do have some oxyclean somewhere, I should try that. I'm not doing too badly, it could have been a lot worse! A broken leg and fractured hip does give you a lot of crafting time though!

I've made two bags with this pattern now, I love it so much!



This one is out of some fabrics from Amy's Nigella line, which is home decorating weight. I really love this bag so much - it fits so much in it. I used it as my everyday purse (crazy, I know), but I put my whole lunch and a travel mug in it - I could probably fit a lot of work in it too, luckily I don't have any to bring home. Unfortunately, it's a bit dirty right now - I was in a car accident a few weeks ago, and haven't washed it since. I'm not very hopeful it will come clean, but I do have more fabric in case I need to make another one, or take it apart and remove the stained piece (just one side of the body got stained).

The inside is plain white, and the two pockets match the the handles.




This one is out of the Daisy Chain fabrics. I have a large family, mostly female, which is always a problem when I show up with something I've made - everyone wants one! I made this for one of my college aged cousins who we had in the Christmas draw. Inside is off-white, with the pockets in the same fabric as the handles. The size is perfect, I think she'll be able to throw some books and her laptop in it to bring to class or the library.

I also made a little zippered pouch to match:



10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Brother CS 6000i? on: November 08, 2008 04:29:38 PM
Just wanted to add to what I said before about the quilting.  I think I've finally isolated my problem - a bum walking foot. It gets caught doing it's whole walking motion and then starts 'jumping.' My mother has the same machine, and I did use it briefly on this project, and did not have the problem, so I'm pretty sure it's just the foot.
