1  Huckleberry pies in Recipes and Cooking Tips by hat-and-bag-lady on: August 21, 2016 08:27:10 PM

(Hubby cut it still a bit warm,)

Mum's Never-fail Pastry
5 1/2 C. Flour
1 1/2 tsp. Salt
3 tsp. Baking Powder
1 lb. Shortening
1 egg
1 Tblsp. Vinegar

Mix flour, salt, and baking powder well. With a pastry blender, cut in shortening until the consistency of coarse meal with a few larger pieces.
Break egg into a measuring cup and beat slightly. Add vinegar. Fill to the three-quarter cup mark with cold water, and blend together.
With a fork, gradually stir in liquid mixture into flour mixture. Add only enough liquid to make dough cling together, and clean easily from the bowl.

Makes 3 Double-crust pies.

Berry pie with fresh fruit
Makes gooseberry, currant, BlackBerry, raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, huckleberry, or Loganbery.
4 C. Fresh fruit
2/3 - 1 C. Sugar (or more)
1/4 C. Flour
1 1/2 Tblsp. Lemon Juice OR 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
If fruit is really juicy, add 2 tsp. quick-cooking Tapioca

Preheat oven to 450F . Line a pie plate with bottom crust.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Let stand while rolling out top crust. Dump berry mixture into bottom crust, dot with butter, cover with top crust. Flute edge.
Slash top (use a fork to put berry initial in middle of top crust. "H" for Huckleberry, for example)
Bake in 450F oven for 10 minutes.
Reduce heat to 350F. Bake 35 to 40 minutes more or until golden brown.

3  Hubby's Old-School Gold Totes. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by hat-and-bag-lady on: April 26, 2016 11:06:19 AM
This summer, my husband and a friend of his, are planning on going and finding, "The Mother Lode". Mike's friend has been reading books, poring over maps, and has decided exactly where they are going.
Mike had a thought that since his wife sews, she could make him some bags: "Gold Pokes", they used to be called.  Cheesy
So, he explained and drew me a picture of what he wanted.

Then, just to be sure that I knew what he was talking about, he drafted me a pattern.

I'm not sure if he knew that I had a whole bunch of old leather jackets that I had bought at a discount re-use store;but, he mentioned that having them out of leather would be really great, since that's how the old ones used to be.
So I showed him my leather jackets, and he chose one to make these beasties out of.

The two top ones are fairly large. They were made from the sleeves. (About 12-14" long) The two bottom ones were what Mike was originally planning. (Roughly 4X6")

Then, he was searching in a bag he keeps his cords in, and he realized it would be the right size and shape. So, he showed the bag and explained what he wanted.
This time, I drew up the pattern and explanation for myself.

Because the original little bag was not very heavy duty, he wanted to see what it would look like in a heavier duty fabric. So I made one out of denim.

And, the interior,

(I will make one out of leather -- eventually.)
What do you think, Craftsters and guests? Feedback welcome.

My Fabric Lady suggested "Boxing" the bottom. I felt foolish I hadn't thought of that myself.  Tongue
So, I undid the bottom, and boxed it



I explained how on page 89 of the original tutorial post by Queenofdiy

Queenof DIY, I hope you don't mind me putting this here.

Well, CraftADDchick, I did it this way.
First, I undid the bottom.


Then, I resewed the outer bottom. (Making sure the lining fabric is out of the way)


Aligning the side and bottom seams, pinning; then drawing a line 2 1/2" in. Sew on drawn line.

Sew both corners

Choosing the centre of the lining bottom, mark 6". Sew from the mark to the end, leaving a 6" opening (for turning, later).

Similar to the outside, align side & bottom seams, mark and sew 2 1/2" corner


Using 6" hole, turn bag right side out.
Hand stitch opening.


Done


I hope I've been clear enough. If not, just ask.
Thank you, Queenof DIY, for a great tutorial.

My Fabric Lady suggested boxing the bottom.
So, I've changed a couple of them.
Here's the interior

What do you think?

Thank you for the tutorial, Queenofdiy.
I have made several of these.




There are a few more, but I have to figure out how to go from photos back to the post without having to hit the back button.

8  Chae's Panda Hoody in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by hat-and-bag-lady on: February 08, 2016 07:39:50 PM
Some 4 years ago, my daughter asked for a "Panda Hoodie". She'd even shared a link to show what she meant. She loved the idea, but she wanted one made by her Mummy.

Between procrastination and intimidation, I put it off until last month.

What intimidated me was the shoulder band on the back. I wasn't sure how I could make sure it was even all the way across.
Finally, I figured out that if I made it to the under-arm it would be broad enough, and even.
My fabric that I'd picked out for it was the perfect "ripeness", just right-aged.

So, even though it was after Christmas, I cut it out and put it together.

On Friday, I mailed it off. I didn't realize it was a statutory holiday today (Family Day). I was frustrated, because now that it was done, I wanted it THERE already!

She did get it today (stat holiday or no). I was so excited.
Once she opened it, she texted, "omg no way!!"
Then, she sent pictures.

Her from the front (note the black sleeves)

Her with the hood up (little black ears)

And the back view (black shoulders and a little black tail, down the bottom)

Now that it's done, and received, I'm very pleased and proud.

What do you think, Craftsters and guests? Worth being proud of?

I bought, some time ago, a Nurse's uniform shirt. Very cute. I'm pretty sure it was supposed to be a bag, even then.
I love Queen of DIY's singlet bag tutorial!
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177482.0
So, I used it to make this:

Close up of the print

I lined it with a simple muslin.

I ripped out the bottom twice -- the 2nd seam I hadn't caught the previous seam close enough in and the raw edge was hanging out.

What do you think, Craftsters and guests?

10  Calgary Stampede Ribs in Recipes and Cooking Tips by hat-and-bag-lady on: February 04, 2016 06:08:57 AM
I've often made these. When doing the last part of cooking, rather than barbecuing, I stick them under the broiler in the oven.
The last couple times I made them, I left them a touch too long, and they got dark spots on them. (I called it burnt, hubby called it carmelized.)
This time, I was really careful, and I didn't "burn" them.


I got the recipe from "Taste of Home" magazine.
http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/calgary-stampede-ribs

It's a recipe that requires 2 days to do "properly". You can do it in one day, if you start early. It really does need the 8-hours in the Rib-Rub to taste best. It will still taste good if you don't, but try starting with the 8-hours or overnight.

Either way, enjoy.
