Thanks for all the nice comments Smiley


Great Job and Great bag  Smiley, I have a question though.....

How did you get the middle piece sewn in (the divider)Huh

lilmissZ28 -- for the divider I used a piece as wide as the finished width of the purse (2 squares on the fabric I was using), plus a seam allowance of 1/2" on either end. When I sewed the lining seams I just sandwiched the divider in the side seams. I should have taken a picture of that step, I realize :S. The divider doesn't attach at  the bottom, if that makes it easier to understand ... just at the sides. I just wanted something to keep my walled upright and separated from all the other junk.

Hope that helps ...

Yes that helps, after I posted my quiestion I went back to you tut and realized I should have read every word before asking lol, had a "duh" moment there.

Thanks

Thanks everyone!!!

They were fairly easy to make, the coin purse with the curved top was the top part to the over mit (the kind that looks more like a glove) I just cut the finger/thumb part off, added the zipper then flipped inside out sewing up the bottom, and the wallet was made from folding a ob-long shaped pot hold in 3rds, took one of the towels that came with the set and cut a piece off of it, adding a zipper then sewing it to the potholder, added snaps and a button to hide the snap on the front. and the bag was made Jordy style out of the remaining towel and the handle was made from the towel i had cut the pocket for the wallet off of. I got the idea from this site....

under choose catagory, click on purses and totes then click on the show called pantry purses.

Here is one of my latest projects. It is a x-mas gift to my mother-in-law. We are having x-mas with her tomorrow and I got these done about 45 mins ago.

I seen a show on turning potholders into wallets, coin purse etc etc so I bought a set ( dish towels, and 2 potholders, one being an over mit), I thought MIL would like it since she is a crafty person herself but doesnt get to do alot of crafting so here you go......


Hope you all like!!

Lets face we have all (those who sew that is) have had problems in the past with our machines doing or not doing this that and the other, so why not have a disscusion board where we can all helkp one another out with these problems or give ideas and/or directions to someone or some website that can help out, give advise and want not.

30  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: do any of you have a quilting machine? on: November 25, 2007 08:26:32 PM
hello all,


I built my machine quilting frame (well hubby did and I helped lol  Wink). They are not to hard to build with the right tools and cost around $175-$250, depending on some of the options you can add, which is ALOT less then they cost in the retail world, cheapest I have found is $599. We will be building them and selling them keeping the price lower than any out there, so if anyone wants some more info let me know.
