1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: HELP! Batting suggestions for the thrifty/cheapo's rag quilt on: December 28, 2007 11:56:47 AM
Great job on your shaggy quilts!!

I made two of these for my kiddos for Christmas and I really kept an eye on the  JoAnns adds and got the flannel and cotton on sale and used my 40% off coupons for fabric that wasn't on sale.  It takes some planning ahead & I don't know if you have the time to wait it out, but taking advantage of the sales can really help bring the cost down.

Could you try using the fleece for batting on just a few squares and see how it feels?  Then decide if you want to proceed with the whole thing?

Keep up the great work!  Smiley

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: Jordy Bag tutorial - what am I missing? on: October 06, 2007 07:30:02 AM
kmsmaverick, thank you for this great hint!!  I am pretty new to making tote bags & the Jordy is so far my favorite/easiest... I always have trouble though turning everything inside out because I use pretty heavy interfacing... leaving the hole in the middle instead sounds like it will be much easier!!  Thanks again for the tip!!

And Jinkies - keep at it, because once you master the Jordy, it will become addictive & you'll love it!!  Good Luck!   Smiley

Lovely bags!  I love the shape and sizes and your color choices...

 I just picked up some upholstery remnants and was going to try to use them for a tote bag.  Did you add interfacing, or was the fabric sturdy enough as is? 

The details of the button closure and inside pockets is also really nice! Smiley

Nice work!!  I love the patchwork lining and all of the colors go together really well.  I recently started making tote bags and I am addicted!! Cheesy
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to make a zippered purse with handles? on: September 20, 2007 08:22:15 AM
I have recently tried to make a lined purse with a zipper and handles...   I used a couple of different tutes from the tutorial list here and tried to improvise, but it was very frustrating... Huh It was hard to know exactly when to attach the handles and to which part (lining or outside) of the purse... I have just recently tackled and am still learning how to put in a zipper...

So, I have gone back to making tote bags with snaps for now until a wonderful, patient, experienced seamstress here shows us newbies to sewing how it's done!! Smiley Smiley

I have made quite a few book purses, and I have to say that I love yours!!  I can tell how much time and effort you put into the details!!  The metalic sides are awesome, not to mention the hand painting!!  Great work! Smiley

 Smiley  Nice work!!  I love backpacks too!  I have attempted one from a pattern I made up myself, but I can't get the top right!  Would love to see your other ones, or possibly a tute!  I also got some of that cute $1.50 material from JoAnn's, it was fun digging through it all and getting lots for not so much $$!

Those look great!  I have done lots of glass etching also... It's so easy to personalize a cool gift!  Handmade gifts are always nice!  Keep up the good work!
