1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Fused Target Tote Bag on: April 27, 2008 06:42:54 AM
This is one of the bags I made for the fill a purse swap - it's a Target Tote bag

I fused the bags together with an iron - there's a great tute on here how to do it.  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=178442.0

Personally, I've found that Target bags fuse the best - I like how when I fold the bags to fuse them the "10 things you should do with this bag" are showing. Smiley

The straps are made with nylon webbing that I got in the trim section of my local fabric store.

Enjoy! Smiley
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Wristlet, change purse and credit card purse on: April 24, 2008 09:54:27 AM
A friend of mine is going through a tough time, so I thought I'd take a stab at making her a wristlet and accessories to cheer her up:

The wristlet:

The accessories:


I used the following tutes as a guide:
for accessories: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=101026.0
And I can't find the wristlet one - it had to do with a zippered pouch, but I can't find it now...

Do you like? Smiley
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Simple Child's Backpack on: March 22, 2008 07:32:11 PM
I made this for my daughter for Easter.  I am happy with how it came out, however next time, I want to pinch the bottom so it has more of a square bottom.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / 3 Pillow case dresses and a Thomas Dress (5 pics) on: February 21, 2008 11:51:20 PM
I've been busy!  No modeling from Little One yet...

I think I'm going to rethink this one - I know the ribbon is too thin, but it was all I had - I'm thinking I'm going to change it to have elastic in the casing like the other two and see if I can find a thicker ribbon - I'm just worried about the whole drawstring hazard.

And Thomas - because they just don't make Thomas clothes for girls...grrr...

Thanks for looking!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Alexander Henry Dresses - pic heavy - *now with action shots on: February 02, 2008 02:12:08 PM
I found this great Alexander Henry fabric on the ends table at my local fabric store and I fell in love with them! Smiley  Plus at 2.99 a yard, who could pass it up?  I'm hoping to potty train my little one this summer, and I've been told that dresses make things easier...(I'm up for whatever works!)  She's still napping, but here are the three I finished today:

Two of the dresses with ties:

Close ups:

One I modified with buttons:

Close up:

I used an easy pattern - I don't have it right now, but I can look it up in a little bit.
Pattern: Butterick See and Sew #3889

And my little one woke up from her nap and insisted that I put on the "pretty dot dress":

And twirling...
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Mei Tai - pic heavy on: February 02, 2008 02:06:27 PM
This is for a baby - so I thought I'd put it here.  My cousin's shower is tomorrow and I wanted to make her a mei tai similar to what I used with my little one:

The bag:

All folded:


Here it is!

And the soft minkee inside:

I used this as my guide: http://www.sleepingbaby.net/jan/Baby/asian.html but modified to what I wanted. Smiley
7  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Sharpie Ink on: January 27, 2008 11:16:05 AM
I don't know if this is the right place, but my lovely husband washed a red sharpie with a load of darks - thankfully, most of the stuff is too dark for the ink to show through, but I have a bunch of clothes where it's noticeable.  I thought the dying place would be where to go...does anyone know what gets this stuff out?  If not, looks like I might have some recon projects going on... ugh!

8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Patched Twirly dress and shorts - now with action shots on: January 20, 2008 08:15:28 PM
I found some neat Alexander Henry fabric on the remnant table and in the middle of making a dress for my Little One, I found some fabric from another unfinished project and I decided to make a modified vegbee twirly dress - I cut out 5 1/2 inch squares b/c I just couldn't take doing all that gathering again.  Wink  I have to say I LOVE the clear elastic trick to gather.  This is going to be a gift for my niece's 3rd birthday. Smiley

The shorts - I made these as an after thought when I didn't want to gather another round...


Now I must finish the dress for LO before she gets jealous of this one! Smiley

Thanks for looking!

Updated:  I got LO to try it on - now she won't take it off! Smiley

Close up of "shorts" - my niece is a little taller than LO, so these might come just to her knees:

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting Magazines on: December 17, 2007 03:46:49 PM
If someone wanted to get you a knitting magazine for Christmas, what one would you want?  I'm looking ones that would have easy to moderate patterns with a few challenges here and there (maybe even gearing more to knitting for kids?).

10  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 20 ENTRIES / Fused Tote Bag on: August 04, 2007 06:21:03 AM
I got the instructions on how to fuse bags from here:

I wanted a new tote bag for various things, and I was inspired by the other fused projects.

Here is my take on it:
Front with pocket:


Inside with side pocket:

I have to say, fusing bags isn't as easy as it looks - the target bag fused the best for me, so that's why it's on the bottom.  I might reinforce the bottom with some duct tape when I can get to the store to use for groceries...if not, it will make a great knitting bag.

Thanks for looking!
