51  Nursery Rhyme Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Deece in MN on: February 21, 2011 06:21:05 PM
My daughter colored the nursery rhyme blocks a few years ago.  I finally found the perfect fabric and have completed the top.  I am hoping to have it quilted soon, but things are kind of crazy busy around here so it may be a while before it is completely finished.
I thought I would post it at this stage anyway.

Not sure if this counts as a finish as it is not quilted yet, but wanted to post this.  It is the nursery rhyme quilt.  My dd colored the blocks years ago and I finally got around to finishing the top.  I am hoping to get it quilted soon.

53  Iron Caddy in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Deece in MN on: February 21, 2011 03:39:05 PM
I wasn't sure where this should go since it is not technically a purse or bag, but this seemed liked the best place.  It is a caddy for an iron.  It has heat resistant material on the inside and can be used as a portable ironing surface as well as a carrier.
It was quick to make and handy to take to sewing retreats/classes.

54  Finally getting back in the groove; another bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Deece in MN on: October 20, 2007 03:15:21 PM
I just finished a bag I had started a few weeks ago for my dd.  She is a budding artist and I found this fabric that was perfect for her.

She recently bought herself a travel art easel and I thought it would be nice for her to have a bag to carry it in.

This bag was inspired by all the great messenger bags that have been posted here.  This is the second bag I made without an actual pattern.  I think I am ready to go back to patterns for a while, this making up my own is really challenging my creativity.  Smiley

The first pic is the front of the bag, the second is the back, the third is the front with the flap open, the fourth is the flap open top view and the last one is a close-up of the fabric.

I didn't put any pockets on the inside, so I didn't take a pic of the bag empty because it is pretty boring.  I think my dd will be pleased with it.

Thanks for looking,

55  Purse for local challenge **Update added** in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Deece in MN on: October 19, 2007 01:21:57 PM
Wow, I am so sorry for how long it has taken me to post how the challenge went.  I did not win Sad  I am not sure how I ended up because I was unable to make it to a customer appreciation the shop held where they announced the results.
I also picked my bag up early because I was donating it to a silent auction being held for someone at dh's work.  I don't know how it did there, either.
Someone asked about a tutorial.  I can't do one because I didn't write down any measurements or anything as I was constructing this.  I just sort of started and modified as I went along.  I am sorry!
Anyway, I just wanted to update on how the challenge went.  I am glad I participated as this project really stretched my creative boundaries. Smiley

Hi everyone,
I made this purse for a challenge that my local quilt shop is sponsoring.  They chose a fabric that had to be used somewhere prominent in/on the bag (not the inside lining of a pocket they said Smiley ).
I chose to use the fabric on the front of the purse.  This is my own design and the first one I have ever done.  I am not very good at that kind of thing.  I usually find a pattern I like and follow it.
My favorite part is the vinyl pocket on the front.  I purchased a pack of quotes on vellum from the scrapbook section at JoAnns.  I can change the quote whenever I feel like.  I love that!
There are a few things I would do differently if I was ever to make this purse again.  For one, I am not sure if I like the placement of the tassels.  Also, the finishing around the top of the purse was not originally going to be like it ended up.

During the month of Nov. the shop will display all the entries and customers can vote for their favorite by putting $.50 in the bag (they get a charm square for each vote).  The bag with the most money at the end of the month will receive a $50 gift card.  All the money will be donated to Toys for Tots.

Anyway, sorry this is so long.  I don't expect to win, but I had fun with this.

Thanks for looking,
