11  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / RIP Dedication... on: October 29, 2009 10:11:04 AM
So back story to this beautiful blanket.  I have a friend who was in the  military.  He was stationed in Georgia, and we are from Houston.  I made him this blanket and shipped it out to him about 2 years ago I suppose.  It took me forever to make.  Well he kept it for a long long time.  He just moved into a new apartment and I suppose that his dog didnt like the new place, so he destroyed the blanket.  I figured its about time to make a dedication thread to it. 
I promised to make him another one.

That is the pic with the best coloring.

Completed blanket.

Its gonna take me another six months to finish another Sad

13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / I Made a collection! on: October 26, 2009 03:33:51 PM

Its been a long time since I have posted in here...
I have been In love with making purses and bags lately.  I have also fallen in love with this circle fabric, so 3 bags later...

This is the big bag.


This is the smaller one


My version of a clutch.  I am not a huge fan of the longer ones.  I made one just big enough for my cell phone, id, money, smokes.  I am in love.  This is my first project without a pattern.
14  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / I am at my wits end, please if you have this mach. i need input ken.385 on: October 21, 2009 02:09:33 PM
A bit of background.  I have been sewing for a while now.  I started with an old singer hand me down from mom (of course).  I worked on that one for over 2 years.  It had its drawbacks, but it served the purpose well.  So when I got a gift card for my birthday this year from Sears, I happily researched and purchased a Kenmmore 385.  It had the best reviews for the price I wanted to spend. 
Well after getting to know this machine for a couple of months, I think im seriously dissapointed and frustrated.  I wanted to come here first to see if anyone else had any input before i return this machine.

Ok so the last straw to this machine has been the fact that it doesn't seem to want to sew seams up evenly.  Like its feeding the top fabric slower than the bottom.  Im at a loss.  Its frustrating.  I sew up bags and purses, and I need things to line up nicely when im sewing, and it doesnt work at all, no matter how careful i pin and cut or anything.  I have also tried adjusting the tensions (i dont know if that makes any bit of difference, but i did.  Changing the feet, nothing.
Im just at my wits end.  I would love to know if anyone else has had this problem with this machine or any others for that matter.  I NEVER had this problem with my old singer.... Its dissapointing.

Thanks in advance!

I have been on a sewing frenzy lately, and i figured that i would share with people who appreciate it the most Smiley
This is a bag that I made for myself that i love, but will never make again.  I think it may be a little to advanced for my level right now.
It did turn out much better than i had ever planned though.
