51  Old "Be Weird" t-shirt = new purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Eowynt on: September 26, 2010 08:20:02 AM
My "Be Weird" t-shirt shrunk too much, so I turned it into a purse.  I modified the buttercup pattern (no tucks) so it would fit the design, added a tricot interfacing to the back of the t-shirt, then sewed as normal.  I had planned on keeping it, but my daughter pulled the "I would love that for my birthday" trick, so it is now hers.

52  Aunt Judy's quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: April 08, 2010 09:36:17 AM
My husband's Aunt Judy made us  this fabulous quilt for our bed:

Here it is again at Aunt Judy's, with the matching pillow cases my  m-i-l made:

Since I always put my bears on the bed in the morning, I made Chrissie a dress to match the quilt:

Her dress is a modified version of a dress for little babies.

C&C always welcome.

53  The biggest quilt I have ever made in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: October 21, 2009 11:34:29 AM
I like to experiment when I quilt, so I make mostly wall hangings and table toppers.  I finally broke down and made a queen size quilt.  These suckers take a lot longer to make!!!  I used mostly 1930's reproduction prints, 'tho I snuck in a modern day dragon in one of the squares.

Hope you like.

54  Two dresses for a baby: Petal dress and Itty Bitty in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: September 07, 2009 09:11:02 AM
My daughters old babysitter is having babies of her own, so I have been sewing up a few dresses for her little one.  My two constraints were that I had to use fabric I already own, and no pink.  This one is a "petal dress" by Sew Baby:
; and the back:
.  I used the 12 months size, so the baby won't be wearing if for awhile, so I also made one of Rae's Itty Bitty dresses out of old scraps from a border print.  In this pic, the straps are not tied:
Here is another shot with the shoulders done [I couldn't fit this dress on a hanger, so I had to put it on the not so nice floor, sorry!]:

Hope you enjoy . . .

55  Origami bags in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Eowynt on: July 16, 2009 05:00:02 PM
These little bags are so addictive.  I have made a ton of them.  I use them to organize my glove box, hold cosmetics, take my lunch to work, sort phone and iPod chargers, you name it.  Here are a few that I have made:

A close up of one (it's made from two bandanas):

What it looks like when partially open:

All the stuff it can hold:

A buried treasure one with a matching tissue holder:

The one I use for my lunch uses Tinkerbell fabric - it is really cute, but it needs a bath, so I didn't want to take a photograph when it wasn't all clean and pretty. . .

56  Patchwork mini-messenger bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Eowynt on: July 03, 2009 11:44:57 AM
So, I am supposed to be packing up my house, but I run into some fabric scraps and leftover quilt blocks.  What is a girl to do:  pack or sew? Well instead of packing up my canned food, I donated them to a local food bank, and instead of packing my fabric, I sew.  My fiance is going to kill me. . .

Anyhoo, this is what I came up with:

and a close-up:

the back:

and a tree shot:

-I can never figure out the best way to take pictures of my work!  I hope you enjoy. . . please leave comments - I need something else to look at other than a looming bookcase of books I need to pack . . .

57  Fun with frogs purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Eowynt on: January 29, 2009 08:51:30 AM
 A couple of years ago Walmart* was selling some really cute froggy fabric-it wasn't high quality cotton, but it was cotton, and it was cheap. So I bought TONS of it.  After making pajamas, pillowcases, Singlet grocery bags, origami bags, etc, I had a lot of scraps.  I am not one to throw stuff out (pack rat, anyone?) so I had fun playing with my froggies, and I came up with this:

The back:


Side view (never mind that I didn't match up just so. . .).

It might be a little silly, but it was fun to make.

**As a side note, I am very mad at Walmart for closing their fabric departments - how about you guys?**

58  Jewel tone quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: January 26, 2009 06:48:59 PM
I stepped out of my comfort zone and made a quilt with BRIGHT colors.  My quilts are normally very subdued. Here are the results:

A closer up view:

A real close up view (I used the central fabric in choosing the rest of the fabrics - which is probably the only time I have actually used a "focus fabric"):

I ran short of my "focus fabric", so I substituted a dragonfly fabric for the remaining blocks:

I hope you enjoy this - comments are welcome!

59  Old jeans = new messenger bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Eowynt on: December 04, 2008 06:09:26 PM
I nabbed a pair of my beau's old jeans that didn't sell at the yard sale, cut them up, and made a new messenger bag.  It was an experiment, and I'm not sure it I really like it or not, and my dd doesn't care for the lining fabric. . .  I figure I'll have to put it to use to see if it is a keeper or not. 
With the flap down:

With the flap up:

and details:

Let me know what y'all think - I still haven't decided!

60  Pocket wallets in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Eowynt on: November 08, 2008 10:25:35 AM
I love making these little "wallets."  I use mine when I walk to the store and don't want to carry a purse.  You could also use them when out clubbing (they hold id, cards and a small amount of cash) - (I'm a little over the hill for the club scene - but I have memories of such things). They are also great to give as gifts, especially with gift cards inside. 

I had some scrap fabrics I didn't want to throw out, so I made these:

I have also made some from just regular fabric:

I gave the one with the Easter egg fabric to my daughter in her Easter basket - with a gift card inside.

These are really fast and fun to make - I hope you enjoy them
