441  Re: Yarnies Scavenger Hunt 2 ~ Gallery of Goodness ~ in The Swap Gallery by MareMare on: September 07, 2008 01:14:04 AM
I made a sunglass case from the awesome soft cotton yarn I got from girlosun_9. My old sunglasses were super scratched up from just throwing them in my purse, so I promised myself I couldn't use my new sunglasses until I made a case for them! And I wear kinda big sunglasses, so it's hard to find a store bought case. It has a flap but I haven't added the button yet.

I received from dreadlochness today! She made me a crochet square for my craftster afghan and a scissors cozy!

Awesome square~

Scissors cozy with super cute fabric and my scissors peaking out~

Thank you so much! It is fun to get birthday presents after your birthday! It makes the whole month feel special!

I can't wait until gothchics receives my package! If it doesn't get there monday I'm gonna have a fit since I sent priority and it was only going one state! This has been such a fun swap!

443  Re: Make a purse with this stuff Swap (Sign-ups 8/26-9/12; FIRST Sendout 9/26) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by MareMare on: September 06, 2008 08:15:36 PM
Here is a sneaky peak of what I am thinking of sending so far. I really can't make up my mind about the floral fabric, some days I think it's awesome and some days I think it's really ugly. Also I think it might be too large of a scale of a pattern for a purse. Comments? Also some coordinating and lining fabrics I was thinking of and some fun trim I bought.

My partner girlosun_9 is having computer issues so I am posting pics for her.

Local~Some pencil roving from Oregon. I know she wants to learn to spin, and at the yarn store they said this would help it be really even

The colors are a little more true here, it was a medium blue with some heathered pinkish purple in it.

Something flexible~a little zipper pouch, she can use it for lots of different things! (flexible in use) I put a few little candies in their for her kiddos too because I felt bad I hadn't made anything for them!

Letter "c"~Crocheted granny square dishcloth

Something unusual~Felted Soap. I felted a bar of my handmade black raspberry vanilla soap

Something blue~pretty yarn!

Something squishy~crochet hoook grips, and a bamboo hook was just extra, since I forgot 2 things in the original package and had to send them out later. Doh!

Oh and I forgot to take a pic sender's choice, but it was an embroidery pattern off her wists of little animals.  Grin

445  7 hrs~Amy Butler Checkbook Clutch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by MareMare on: September 02, 2008 10:38:20 PM
I have been wanting to do this project since I got the In Stitches book, and finally I sat down today to do it. It's definitely not perfect, but it was a fun project and I will make some more, hopefully without the mistakes in this one!  My camera is at my brother's house, but I was so excited to post that I took pics with my phone! I originally wanted to add some red accents into this purse, but ended up leaving it just the white and black.

Here is the outside, closed.

Here is the outside back with the flap open to show the pocket.

And here is the inside with a few things added!

I did the ruffle with the lining fabric instead of the outside fabric, and made the pen and lipstick holders with the outside fabric for a little more contrast. I goofed up on the zipper a  bit (that was a PIA) and I sewed the inside in a little bit funky so the side card holders are a little bit narrow, but I am gonna deal with it. All in all I am pleased that it only took me about 7 hours! It would have been less if I had read a few of the directions a little bit more carefully too! And I haven't added the little handle thing yet, but not real concerned about it. I think it is really a zipper pull, but they call it a handle?

Seriously, if anybody wants to do this project, make sure you have lots of tailor's chalk in good colors to contrast your fabric!

446  Re: TUTORIAL: Straight Sided Triangular Cosmetic Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by MareMare on: September 02, 2008 01:56:22 AM
Here are pics of a couple of these I made up for some recent swaps!

This was for the august birthday swap

And this was for the yarnies scavenger hunt swap

The second one turned out better IMO since it was thicker weight home dec fabric. The first one was just quilting cotton and was a little too lightweight to hold it's shape. Next time I use cotton I am going to use a medium weight fusible interfacing on one of the layers. But, I really like using different fun prints for the lining and the outside!

I received from girlosun_9 today! I love my package!

This lovely organic cotton in one of my favorite colors is Squishy, and the Lavender and Blueberry Dark Chocolate bar is Unusual!

A Clutch is something with the letter C

Needles to weave in my ends, I am always losing them! Something Blue. And something Flexible...a Spline. I'm not really sure what that is, but it's fun to play with. After a google search I think it's to help draw curves?  Embarrassed

The Spline repositioned to show how very flexible it is, and Sender's Choice, a Scissors Cozy which I really needed! I wanted to show my scissors wearing it, but my sewing box is in the car and I just couldn't drag myself outside.

Something Local~ Postcards from Maine! These are very fun, and I collect postcards!

And she wrote what everything was on these little cards with awesome Maya Angelou quotes on them! Thanks girlosun_9, it was a great swap!

448  Re: Pictures of craft fair setup - Please post! in Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs by MareMare on: August 26, 2008 07:36:58 PM
Here are pics from the first craft fair I did. I just had my soaps in baskets. I took in over $1000 in two days.

I later got displays and squared my packaging away, but I have never made as much as that first year! These are a few years old, I have changed my packaging to soap boxes and then back to cigar bands, but the displays are pretty much the same

449  It took me 6 years, but I did it. in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by MareMare on: August 25, 2008 12:58:01 AM
I got my serger for my 21st birthday. I turned 27 a couple weeks ago, and tonight I finally figured out how to thread the damn thing! I almost cried I was so excited. This thing has frustrated me for many years, but for some reason it finally clicked! My mom kept wanting to give it away or sell it, but I vowed one day it would work for me!
