Hi Folks,

Nice work Belladune love the colours and I sympathise with the paper I am not bery good at that part myself  Undecided I have taken to making purses etc because they don't have paper inside Cheesy

I have made this today  I've used Teesha edges but machine quilting for speed. Its just to keep my pencils in for my new college course. I am sure that although its finished I will continue to embellish for quite some time.

I have managed to make one of the beads I saw on a link somebody posted on here a while back, thats what you can see dangling at one side of my pencil case.

Its been quiet here recently is everybody busy sewing or just lost preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'interest...........I') hope not.

Yes Craftylm is right you can use all of the things she said ( i do the same) but yesterday I was lucky enough to see an advert  for these buttons on an online selling site...........23 bags of buttons with at least 100 in each for 1 euro per bag.......Some of the buttons are fabric covered and so i can dye them any colour i want yey! Cheesy

Look on ebay or in the local newspaper small ads or even write a WANTED small ad yourself and put it on the board in the local shops or doctors surgery asking people for unwanted buttons. Smiley

Nice patches Taraston I can't wait to see what you make with them and how you tackle putting them together. Wink

Ok I think I have finally finished my bag strap and all.

Take a look guys and tell me if you think I should decorate the strap as well. I have numerous ideas including some lovely little embroidered and crocheted flowers. I have done the Teesha turned over edges  and a couple of wavy lines with the sewing machine for the quilting effect because there is fibre fill inside the strap. Not sure cause I think it looks ok as is but my husband thinks I should embellish it more..

I am also going to add an inner pocket for my phone and a strip of fabric so that I have 2 compartments.

5  Jazzy birdhouse in Completed Projects by jodilee on: August 05, 2010 04:32:52 AM
I've had this birdhouse for over a year and finally decided to do something with it. I drew on black lines with a felt tipped pen and then painted each segment in a different coloured ink. The whole thing has been water sealed. However i am planning on using it as decoration indoors.

CLM I made some cushions with 2 pieces of fabric with the fibre fill in the middle and then just held the three together with pins and whip stitched the edges. I did turn the edges over but there was no difference than those cushions i made by machine stitching the pieces together,then stuffing, then sewing the fourth side shut. You couldn't see any difference at all.

This is a very flexible technique and  any adaptations based on ability or patience or time are fine i think, in fact if they are more to your taste then they are great.

I'm half way through my shoulder bag but as for making the handle mmmmmmmmmmI was considering either scavenging a handle off an old bag or just rolling some fabric into a ermmmm roll and whip stitching it of possbly plaiting some cord or fabric. I may take a 20 cm wide strip of fabric and machine sew it length ways and having sandwiched some flat fibre fill in the middle I shall machine sew quilt it. I nice broad strap is more comfortable. I dunno yet though not sure what to do.

Here is my work in preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'progress..........There') is a LOT of embellishments to go on yet and I am considering doing the front flap in the standard Teesha style.
front and back


Teesha style front panel ( this is a diary cover but to give you the idea)

I intend to whip stitch between the  patches / panels and also to embroider with tiny stitches all over plus the usuall bobbles and embellishments Grin

I may be some time.

 I finished another purse/ phone holder which is not strictly adhereing to Teeshas style but I like the finished effect.

I just used a simple piece of Velcro as the fastener

I'm NOT using a ladder stitch I'm sewing on the backs with a whip stitch  with normal needle in a and thread beacause The embroidery thread looked too messy for my eyes.

This is also untidy but its easy to do and its sturdy  so I'm happy with that,
