So cute! AND utilitarian. Would love to learn the staggered card slot technique. If you don't care to post a tutorial, would you be so kind as to describe the construction? The card slots appear to overlap. Maybe another photograph? Hoping not to be a pain but so inspired by YOU, I am, SkitzoLeezra
Are those just gutters that you can get at like home depot? Do you remember about how much they cost you?
Y'all are too kind. Thanks for the lovely compliments. (I love it, I love it!) You, too, can become a ribbon whore/hoarder! Sorry, do not recall the cost of gutter. If shiny metal is not your thing, look at the other colors or paint it! (Martha had hers custom fabricated in copper.) The galvanized gutters can be found at Home Depot, Lowe's and such. I purchased a 20' length and had it cut into four 5' sections. You will need both left and right hand end caps for each section. I pre-drilled hole in gutter and then drilled gutter onto wall. To avoid scratches on your wall, get a buddy to hold the end of gutter as you drill. Use a level! Hope that helps! Guilty of determining which gift recipients are ribbon worthy, I am, SkitzoLeezra
What ya into?I hope to have some stuff in LUNA'S NEXT MONTH. at least I HOPE TO...
Wow! What kinds of things do you make, fraught? I am kinda into everything: rubberstamping, some jewelry making, beginner to sewing, just getting into hand embroidery, always doing a home decor project (or trying to boss someone else around and tell them what to do in their house), etc.
My dad has his thing about paint it white. ..I want it to be kinda fashioned inspired i want to go into fashion design when I go to college so its kinda my passion. Any ideals?
Okay, keep an open mind . . . over and over I am struck at the neutral interiors of top designer homes. Donna Karan, Calvin, Michael Kors, Tricia Guild, etc. Those fashion gurus look at color all day long and choose to calm their own homes with lack of color. Go white or ecru on EVERYTHING! Nothing more elegant than a mix of white, ecru, light taupe, etc. Plus any existing items or garage sale treasures can be painted for a cohesive look. Add any accent and it will POP! I have tons and tons of pillow covers that I constantly change on my ecru Pottery Barn slipcovered sofa and chair. Instant makeover! Since you plan to attend college, DON'T do a mural but instead paint your masterpiece on a large canvas or just a piece of canvas fabric. It will look artsy even if you tack it to the wall! Use upholstery tacks in your desired finish - silver, gold, bronze. You can take the art with you! Find a junky treasure? Decoupage it with old clothing pattern tissue paper. Layer it and you will have a graphic piece of art! Hope this can be of help to you. Good luck!
The bag is made from one pattern piece. It's just like the plastic shopping bags and in fact the pattern is made from the shopping bag.
Thanks for posting the tutorial! As a beginner to sewing, I appreciate the concise instructions. The tote is so cute that I am carrying it as a purse. The fabric is vintage. (I plan to use this pattern again but will make longer handles so that I can hang the tote on my shoulder.)
