23  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Makeup bags gifts on: November 23, 2011 01:07:20 PM
I am making makeup bags for all my sisters this year for Christmas. So far I've finished three sets and only have two more to go.
For two of the sets I decided to use http://www.noodle-head.com/2010/04/gathered-clutch-tutorial.html. I simply changed the dimensions so that I could have three different sizes, then boxed the bottom corners to help them stand on their own.

This one is how I think I may "wrap" them.

My favorite combo of them all.

Originally, I had planned on everyone having a different kind of bag, so I started off with this one. I looked at several different tutorials and then just kind of winged it here. Unfortunantly, I had to stuff them with books to get them to stand up nicely.

Well, thanks for looking!

Nice! hmmm... I wonder if *my* dad keeps the bags they come in... Crown Royal is the only alcohol he cares for, LOL, I think he'd totally go for a quilt of it! Tongue

Go for it!
26  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / A t-shirt quilt courtesy of Sonic on: November 16, 2011 08:21:21 AM
At a recent family garage sale, I was digging through my MIL's box and found 11 Sonic t-shirts that had once belonged to my SIL, Megan. She worked there for a year or two, and met her husband there as well. These were good, cotton t-shirts and for the most part they were in pretty good condition. As soon as I saw them I thought of a t-shirt quilt, even though I am not a quilter. I finally finished it and now I have to sit on it for a month before giving it to them for Christmas. This is gonna be so hard!

Here is the whole thing. I was so afraid of it not being big enough that I think I may have made it too big, lol! It is close to a queen size.

Just a close up of some of the inside blocks. With only 11 shirts to work with I had to get creative, so I used the sleeves and bottom parts of the shirts to create 9 patches. I think that I literally used every single bit of material from those shirts.
To quilt it I simply ran a line of stitching along each row of black and down each column of black. I wanted to do more but, quite frankly, I got tired of quilting very quickly and it was so hard to fit all of it in the machine.

For the back, binding, and sashing, I knew I wanted to go with a simple black and white. I just happened to have the crazy wavy fabric and the solid black in my stash, ao all I had to buy was the black w/white dots. Makes for a bit of a busy back and binding, but I think that may be my favorite part.

Well, thanks for looking!!
27  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Crown Royal Quilt on: November 16, 2011 08:06:43 AM
I made this for my dad's birthday last February and just thought to post it. He has been hoarding Crown Royal bags for a very long time and asked me to make him something. He didn't care what, as long as it was made with those bags. So, after sitting on the bags for close to two years, I finally decided on a quilt. Now, my quilting skills are less than phenomenal, but I think it turned out OK.

Wonderful ideas! Thanks so much! I really never even thought of applique.
29  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / How can I create a design from a picture? on: November 04, 2011 01:51:28 PM
While I have been sewing for years now, I've only just caught the quilting bug. I would really like to make a quilt for my husband that has the logo from his favorite video game, Gears of War, much like the Super Mario Bros./PacMan quilts I've seen. I have found a picture of the main logo that I want to use but am unsure as to how to pixelate it to create the quilt top. I do have PCStitch on my computer and have imported the picture there and created a cross stitch pattern for it. The problem is now size. If I've done all the math right, my individual squares would need to be 1.5"x1.5" for a quilt a little less than 9'x9', and there would be close to 5000 squares!!! I just don't think I have it in me. I would really like to use bigger squares but then I will have a ridiculously huge quilt, and all I really want is a throw for the couch.
How does a person recreate an image without going way overboard on size?
Here is the picture I plan to use. This is not my favorite game in the whole world but the man loves it.

Thank you so very much in advance for any help you can give!
