11  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Omelets Anyone? on: September 20, 2008 08:28:21 AM
As a kid my mom would always make the best omelets, Thanks, mom! However, as an adult, I've never been able to master the flipping involved in omelet making. As a result we never eat omelets in my home. Last week my mom sent me a cooking link(http://www.videojug.com/film/how-to-make-freezer-bag-omelettes-4)...she does this often...maybe she's hinting around at something...hmmm Undecided.
Anyway, I checked it out and it ended up being the easiest, coolest, most dummy proof way to make omelets.

I used 3 eggs, some chopped up lunch meat (ham), and cheese, but the possibilities are endless.

Breakfast of champions!

If you try this, let me know how it goes.

I found this fabric recently with a purse in mind. I think that it turned out pretty well. There isn't much room in it- but I don't like to carry around a bunch of nonsense anyways.

It has a large inside pocket too

And this one I made about a month ago. I like it too; but it has a ton of room which I tend to fill with...nonsense. I made a matching wallet to go with it that I am extremely happy with. I didn't have a pattern for either of the purses or the wallet. I really enjoy the challenge of figuring out a workable pattern and putting it all together. I daydream about it all the time!

I just ordered these fabrics from the fabricshoppe on etsy! UMMMM, I can't wait to get started!

14  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Hoodies for my pups!! on: July 31, 2008 04:00:59 PM
Today I made two hoodies for my puppies. I cut up an old sweat shirt that belonged to DH and used my serger to finish the edges. I might use some paint to put their names on the back...still unsure about that. Anyway, here they are:

They were very easy and I will make a tut if anyone is interested!
15  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Dog Carrier! on: June 23, 2008 04:50:40 PM
    I recently got a new puppy, his name is Bob Barker and he is the sweetest little puppy. He is about 4 months old and is a Yorkie. I wanted to make him a carrier because he is so small that sometimes when we are out it would not be wise to let him walk (Big Dogs) and although he is small, I did not want my hands to be tied up in carrying him. Being that I am a crafty craftster I used my crafting skills to make him a cool carrier. So without further adeiu...
This is Bob all tied up in my measuring tape while I was trying to cut out my fabric. He would like for you to believe that he is sweet and innocent...but imagine
trying to cut fabric with flash lightening whipping around your blades.
  Completed bag has two outside pockets with an outside lanyard to hold his poop bags.

Inside shot. I put a zipper inside so I could carry some small items (phone, credit card, chap stick...). There is a inside pocket for his water bottle and a lanyard that attaches to his harness so he cannot escape.... oops, I mean jump out and harm himself.

Bob in a Bag!

Bob and I!
Action Shot - Bob went Kayaking over the weekend in has bag- he slept the whole time.
16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Sewing Machine Tote on: April 05, 2008 07:48:45 PM
     I've wanted to create a tote for my sewing machine for awhile now but was never able to find a fabric I was crazy about. Alas, I found some! I know that most people don't tote their machine around but sometimes my friends and I will get together and sew. So while I'm a toting I don't want to get my machine all banged up. I made a semi hard bottom and added a pocket to the outside.
Here is the bag hanging with the machine inside.

Peek-A-Boo Shot

Ready to Go!!!

I'd like to make a smaller tote to go with it to carry sewing stuff- I have enough fabric leftover. I'd really like to find a tut on the rectangluar boxy looking bags that I've seen on Craftster. Any suggestions would be appreaciated.
17  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / New Bag for an Old Friend on: March 29, 2008 09:02:50 PM
So this is the bag I just made. It is a "just because gift" for a friend of mine. I hope she likes it! I'm gonna send her this link as a teaser- she doesn't know it is coming. I found the fabric at WalMart. I was inspired by guisypatch and her Granny Bag https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=232498.0

 This is an inside shot. I put a key strappy- only cuz I think it is cool. I have one in my purse but never use it. Also a velcro'd pocket and a pen holder. Yeah! No more lost pen.

I sewed some seed beads to add some detail to the outside. I don't think that you can see but I promise it is there.

And....I also made a wallet to go with it. It is a tri-fold with a small velcro pocket. It also has a wrist strap. Oh, I also seed beaded the inside of the wallet. I like the way the inside of the wallet came out.

Have a Great Day!

PS She Loved It!

18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My New Wallet! on: February 23, 2008 07:47:43 PM

While at  work one day my cool friend "Blingham" said how cool it would be to make a wallet. We griped about how you can never find a wallet that has all the pockets and cozies that you need. She's very crafty and made a pattern on the spot. So this is her pattern with some slight mods.
Two things that I would do differently are: my strap/closure thingy came out somewhat wonky. I should have sewn it flat to the outside of the back piece. And my zipper is backwards and should be on the upper side of the wallet. A non-sewer would never notice but it is nagging at me. This is my first wallet along with my first post. I would love to hear what everyone thinks good and/or bad.
