1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / first free motion quilted pillows! on: April 03, 2009 07:17:08 PM
I just got a darning foot last week and absolutely had to try it. I started with a small block and then figured that I should try an actual project....thus, these pillows!

i'm actually pretty happy with how they turned out. The stitches aren't perfect by any means but i'm sure they'll get better with practice.

oh, i should note that i took these with my camera phone, so the quality kind of sucks...now on to the pics!

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / we're tying the knot! engagement party invites on: October 14, 2008 06:24:28 AM
I've been engaged for a whole week and a half and my mother has already decided to plan an engagement party. naturally I took over the invitations. She was going to go and order some but I thought - no way! Why buy when you can make? soooo, here are my lovely engagement party invites!

we're not planning on getting married for about a year and a half (i'm finishing up my third year of law school and I think that perhaps I should find a job before I get married...just a thought) so I was really excited when my mom offered to throw this for us!

Happy planning everyone!!!
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / black/white/yellow bird bag on: September 03, 2008 07:32:42 PM
I have officially dubbed this style of bag as the "nana bag" as my nana was the first one to ever request such a style from me. Now that i've made a few of them, I wanted to make her a new one as a thank you for all that she's done for me (i received my quilting & sewing genes from her!). she's going to flip when she sees it!

she had mentioned a little while ago how much she loves velcro closures so i thought i'd add that in for her
& it's just big enough to hold a cell phone, keys and some money!

thanks for looking!!
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / patchwork stuffed dogs on: August 21, 2008 09:24:57 PM

here you can see the obnoxiously pink sparkly vinyl i used for the pads of their feet. i love them!

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / black damask beach bag on: May 26, 2008 11:25:24 AM
I made this for a friend who watched my cats while i was away - i'm so happy with how it turned out although it was seriously tough to create. the fabric is black damask home decor weight and it's covered in clear 20 gauge vinyl. the interior is thinner silver vinyl. no pockets b/c i ran out of fabric, but it's just for carrying things to the beach so it should be ok!


thanks for looking & happy memorial day!
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / 2 Spring Bags! [IMG HEAVY] on: April 25, 2008 08:08:59 PM
The first is made with Joel Dewberry fabric. it's all pink & green coordinating fabric (the pics don't due the true color justice)...i'm a huge Joel Dewberry fan....oh & this one i made for myself!

whole bag (it's quilted around the green shape)

top has a bottom separating zipper

inside with zipper pocket

The second bag I ended up giving to my Aunt...her daughter (my cousin) is getting married in August and the colors are pink & orange so i figured it can inspire her while she's helping with the wedding preparations!

whole bag

zipper closed

zipper open!

up close of some of the quilting!

the only thing i probably should have done was put a pocket or two in there, but other than that i'm pretty obsessed with it.

thanks for looking Smiley

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / dinosaur camoflauge messenger bag on: March 25, 2008 07:54:31 AM
i had made a bag a couple of weeks ago for my boyfriend's little sister...well, apparently his little brother (4 years old) saw it and wanted one too...i can't decide whether it's because he really liked it or because he was just jealous of his big sister...regardless i had to set it right. i found this fabric and got really excited because he's really into "army men." it's the perfect combination of kid and camo.

i used pellon fusible interfacing (#72 i think)...it's really thick...i broke three needles while making it!

thanks for looking :-)
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / "fruity" messenger bag on: March 08, 2008 08:19:11 PM
This is for my boyfriend's eight year old sister - i'm so happy about how it turned out (minus the fact that it's not completely straight in some parts, but i digress). enjoy!

action shot!
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / i made a bag instead of studying on: February 13, 2008 05:34:43 PM
I'm in the middle of studying for law school finals (we're on the quarter system rather than a semester system) and obviously my creative energy got a bit pent up. I loved this fabric & had a bunch left over after making curtains for my bathroom and didn't know what to do with it....then i thought - make a bag! so here you go!
