1  Crayon Roll/Caddy - Pics! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by shanmoore on: July 10, 2007 10:38:22 AM
Inspired by this lovely craftster's post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=173827.0

I created my own little crayon roll. It was really easy to make, but it did take a minute to sew in all of those little channels! I used a 24-pack of crayons, instead of the smaller packs. I was surprised at how cheap crayons are! 12 cents for a box of 24 at Wal-mart! Anway, enjoy the pics, and comments good or bad always appreciated!    Grin

2  Yet Another Taggie! in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by shanmoore on: May 02, 2007 12:38:03 PM
I may be addicted to making taggies. This one is for my 2 year old nephew, who saw his baby sister's original Taggie, and thought it was pretty cool. I didn't think he's too old for one, so I made it just for him. He's a huge Veggie Tales fan, so this fabric was perfect! Since he's a little older, I made it bigger than my first one (12"x12").. this one measures about 20"x22". It's super soft flannel, so I almost hate to give it away!


I know there's a patent on the original Taggie brand, so I think I'll just start calling them loopies. hahaha.  Wink

3  Couple of new bags.. Kind of img heavy.. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by shanmoore on: May 02, 2007 12:33:12 PM
I'm getting better at making purses (I think). Please let me know what you think of my latest!

This is a diaper/tote bag I made out of two placemats. It's a little boring on the outside, so I might add some sort of applique or something. Suggestions?


My first Jordy!

Inside.. no pockets or anything, I thought it would make a good little girl purse. It's kind of small.

Thanks for looking! I'd love to hear your comments!  Grin

4  Another Placemat Purse/Tote Bag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by shanmoore on: April 10, 2007 10:54:24 AM
I think I'm officially addicted to making placemat purses. This is my second one, and I'm already planning a third..I'm going to attempt a placemat diaper bag. I guess this would be more of a placemat tote bag, but it was fun and easy, so it doesn't really matter. I bought these placemats at Wal-Mart for $1.50 each, and the pack of 2 coordinating napkins for $2.50 I think. I used a piece of one napkin for the inside pocket, and haven't decided what to do with the other napkin. Maybe more pockets?

5  My Taggie! in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by shanmoore on: April 10, 2007 10:47:37 AM
I saw the tut for the taggie blanket and had to try my own for my little one. It was so easy! I showed my sis-in-law and now I have to make one for my niece and nephew...

6  My first bag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by shanmoore on: March 22, 2007 12:56:03 PM
I know it's very plain, but this is the first bag I've ever done! It's a placemat bag at that, so I hardly feel like I've done anything. Special thanks to not2old4glitter for this tute: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=94934.0! It really helped me understand the corners! I'm new to sewing, so I was pretty proud of myself.

Can't post pictures yet, so here are the links:

I was too lazy to change the thread to red or black, so the light blue thread is visible where I sewed the straps on. Does anyone have any suggestions for embellishments to cover up the light blue thread? Next time I'm going to add pockets, and possibly a liner.

Thanks for looking!
