11  My first amigurumi in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by CartoonJunkie on: May 09, 2009 08:16:09 PM
I just starting crocheting on Monday (or maybe Tuesday?) because I really wanted to try amigurumi. My sorority animal is the turtle so when I saw this pattern I had to give it a try. My sorority colors are pink and green so that is the story behind the colors. I screwed up a few things on the shell but I know what I did wrong so I can fix it for next time. Overall I think it is pretty cute for a first try Smiley

and here is another picture for scale

12  Embroidered Purse and Matching Wallet (EDIT: added pictures) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by CartoonJunkie on: May 02, 2009 10:18:17 PM
My grandmom really liked the tote bags I made but she doesn't need a big bag like that. I decided a little buttercup bag would be perfect for her. She loves birds so I picked the lining fabrics with birds and trees. I hand-stitched one of the birds onto the front of the bag. I'm giving it to her for mother's day. I hope she likes it Smiley

13  Cupcake Tote Bags (lots of pictures) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by CartoonJunkie on: April 29, 2009 05:17:25 PM
The last time I sewed until recently was in high school. My sister asked me to sew her some simple fleece throw pillows for her guest bedroom so I dusted off my sewing machine and got to work. I had forgotten how much fun it was! I went out to Joann fabric to get some fabric and ideas. My sister found some super cute cupcake fabric and a pattern that she liked and I got to work.

The pattern is one of the simplicity patterns. We realized once we got home that the pattern was way to small for what she needed so I enlarged it a lot. I also decided against the zipper that the pattern called for and used magnetic snaps instead. I also added a liner with a zipper pocket and some pockets for her phone or whatever, and a key chain holder.

I made one for myself with the same cupcake fabric in pink and then my mom wanted one too. I also made a wallet for myself to match my bag. The wallet is based on this tutorial

They definitely aren't perfect but doing these bags has gotten me excited about sewing and I can't wait to start some more projects Smiley
