11  Let's see your sewing machine cover! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by ronise on: November 12, 2007 12:05:15 PM
I made a sewing machine cover for myself yesterday and after reading http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=34786.0 I got curious about how everyone else covers their machines.

So, here's mine:

Please show me yours!

Here's mine:

Here's a side view so you can understand the measurements problem that I had:

I'll have to try again and get it right this time.

I finally made one. It really is easy, I love it!

Action shots:

The only problem is that my pocket is too small so I can't fold it and put inside the pocket. But it still is a nice bag and the next one that I make will be better.

Thanks again for the awesome tutorial.  Wink

Don't be afraid, you can always make some more! Smiley

Diesels_Mom - here's how I do:

1. You need a cotton towel and one or two pieces of fabric (you can decorate one end or both - I did one side on my first ones and both sides on this one)

2. Iron the pieces of fabric folding both ends and then fold in the middle

3. Place the fabric in the towel, pin and sew (make sure both sides match so you sew it all together at once)

If you're decorating both ends you do the same on the other end

4. Fold the sides, pin and sew

5. It's ready!

If I missed something important just ask.
I told you it's easy!

I'm sooooooooooooo excited! I got home from work and Tuesday's package was here! Her pincushion is better than I could ever thought! I feel so lame for the ones I sent her now.

Ok, are you ready?

Can it be any better than this? No! This is the best.
And it smells good too. Smiley

Thanks so much Tuesday, it was great having you as my swap partner.

Here are the action shots:

In my sewing machine:

Its reversible so she can choose between stripes or flowers.

And heres the back part:

I make the closure with a ring and ribbon because I didnt know the size for her machine and that way its adjustable. I hope it fits!

I cant wait for my pincushion to arrive!!!!

17  Dish towels - easy as 1-2-3 (now with tutorial) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by ronise on: October 07, 2007 08:34:30 PM
So I made some dish towels for my mom and my sister-in-law:

They are regular cotton towels decorated with scraps of fabric I had from other projects.

You see, the use of a dishwasher is not so popular in Brazil, people mostly hand wash their dishes and dry them. So we use these a lot. And I've seen similar towels being sold 3 for R$10 and my mom brought this cloth that I could make 2 towels for R$2,50.

The project is no big deal, but I figured some would like the idea. (and maybe make it better? People here usually do this and I love!)

18  Pins and needles everywhere? Not anymore! in Completed Projects by ronise on: September 04, 2007 06:46:25 AM
I saw this: http://superziper.blogspot.com/2007/03/diy-braadeira-de-alfinetes-para-mquina.html

I thought it was a great idea and made one for my sewing machine:

Its just a strap of fabric with velcro on both ends. You attach it to your sewing machine so you can pin your pins while you are sewing. Very handy! Smiley

Its such a simple idea, yet so good. And it decorates the sewing machine too.

In the picture you can also see the first pincushion I made myself. It turned you ok, but I can do better. I used this tutorial: http://whipup.net/2006/03/01/stickin-it-to-the-pincushion/

Thanks for looking.

20  Pink "assimetrical" wrap shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ronise on: April 22, 2007 04:00:23 PM
Today I made a shirt. I actually finished it, I started it a long long time ago. I didn't use a pattern and didn't even measured it properly. I did it by the eye and with that said I think it turned out pretty good.

Thanks for looking.
