1  Apron - with link to picture and video tutorial in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Rosemary on: November 29, 2010 10:01:30 PM
Ignore the daft pose.  All the images were taken from the video and I was doing a dumb dance at the time.  
Mum made this as part of a video tutorial series she wants to do and I'm helping with the filming, editing and website and stuff.  

To check out the proper tutorial and video:http://gentlefootprint.com.au/sewing-class-2-making-an-apron/

Otherwise, this is how it's done.  

Cut out apron from a 1m x 70cm piece of fabric.
For the arm hole cut a curved shape 15cm from the fold, to 25cm from the top.

Cut 2 straps, 10cm x 75cm; 2 x 40cm cotton tape and rectangular pocket.

Make the straps by taking your long piece of material and fold it in half lengthwise, right sides together.
Pin and sew leaving one end open to turn inside out. .

Trim the corners and push the strap right side out.

Use quick-unpick or pin to gently pull the corners so they are sharp.

Iron the straps flat.

Next we prepare the pockets.

Begin by stitching a hem.
Fold the fabric at the top of the pocket over twice, pin and sew.

Fold in and iron the other two sides and bottom, folding in the corners for a neater finish.

The Apron:
Fold down the top of the apron twice and sew to form a hem 2cm to 3cm wide.

Hem the other three straight sides by folding, pining and sewing as you did with the other top of the apron and pocket. This hem only needs to be about 1cm wide.

Pin the apron in place, in the center about 20cm down from the arm holes.
Top stitch the sides and bottom, being sure to secure the stitches with reverse stitching at the ends.

Hem the arm holes the same as you did the other hems.
It is a little trickier than the straight hems, but making this hem a little smaller will help.

Sew the straps on.
First of all by sewing with the long tail of the strap in, and then fold the strap up and sew over it again.

And youre done!

2  Beef patties/burgers with link to video tutorial in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Rosemary on: November 23, 2010 06:28:43 PM

Made these with my mum as part of her video tutorial project. 

Beef Burgers

You will need:

450 g minced beef or lamb
1 small onion, chopped
1 egg, beaten
Salt and black pepper
4 round bread rolls
Little cooking oil
Mix the onion, mince, egg and a pinch of salt and pepper in a bowl
Cut the bread rolls in half and toast lightly under grill
Divide the burger mixture into 4 pieces.
Form into a ball and flatten with your hands
Brush the burgers with a little oil, and cook under a grill, or on the barbeque
Place the cooked burgers in the bread roll.
Add a slice of cheese, lettuce and tomato to make a healthy meal
Serves 4

Something different:

Burgers on a barbeque are great with onions and a variety of salads.
Add some cooked bacon for a deluxe version

Oddly enough I'm vegetarian, and I think meat is really icky.  Filming and editing this video together was a challenge.

And this is the card that never made it.....

It is titled "Map of Tassie"
Tassie is short for Tasmania, the small island at the bottom of Australia. 
Map of Tassie has become popular Australian slang for a ladies lady hair due to the shape of the island.
I even marked out hobart, the capital of the state (tasmania is its on state) and king and flinders islands wich are tecnically part of Tasmania too.

6  Re: Adults Only Swap Round 2 (SIGNUP CLOSED ; MAIL BY 03/26/07). in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by Rosemary on: March 03, 2007 08:00:06 PM
HI All,

Ok, so im not sure if i should post this here but i will because its got to do with the adult swap!
Ok I'll admit it, i got alittle excited and started to make afew items last week prior to getting my partner.
i have pmed my partner to show her some of the items i made because on her profile she doesnt like leather/stud items, and i made them! **Sorryy**
So im givign her the opportunity to pick any of the items she lieks (or she may not like any) then i will make additional items.
However I have a feeling she wont like them because they are imiatiation leather (vinyl).. SO i am going to list the pix here, to give all of you an idea if your a little lost of things to make and also the chance to get something free or for trade of something also adult made?
There is
1. Blindfold/Mask - red vinyl with red satin and pearl trim
2. red satin cosy bag
3. red vinyl whip
4. red cuffs that say "play" "with me".
Ofcourse my swap partner has first priority but please pm me if u are interested. Smiley
Also any comments feel free Smiley I enjoyed making these items  Grin

I love them!
my distaste of leather and studs is more for black leather and studs, (too mean looking) the red and sparkles glamours them up perfectly.

And the front page SAYS that we are partnered, but I haven't recieved any PM's with your info.
If there is a limit to the amount of messages you can hold it could mean that my inbox is too full, I am orginising a swap and I have way heaps of messages.  But I don't want to delete them, if there isn't a limit, untill the swap is over.
(I just decided way heaps is acceptable english)

So upside means with our pattern facing normally, and downside when we reverse the pattern piece right?  or am I confused?
I put that in the first post somewhere with the example pic
if that is clear.

I can't believe I missed that...... maybe I should try to get some sleep it may all seem clearer in the morning.  I swear driving that Taxi has fried my brain.
there was just a link to the pic and a description on the first page. no actual giant pic.
easially missed.

10  Fully lined and zippered messanger bag tutorial! Brown and rainbow love. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Rosemary on: February 09, 2007 04:21:23 PM
Today class I am going to teach you all how to create this bag here

To start you need to decide what size you want it and create your pattern peices.
You want a front and a back,
two side
two top (a zipper seem alowance larger than the bottom
a bottom
a strap

Then you want all that agian in a lining fabric plus what pockets you want to use.  
I didn't get a shot of the lining.

If you want to decorate the bag do it now.
I had to redo over the zigzags that hold that fabric bit on like four times by the end.

The first thing we are going to do is put the zipper in.
pin the right side of the fabric to the wrong side of the zipper and sew down the edge.  LEAVE A SEEM ALOWANCE AT THE ENDS

fold it over and sew down the edge again so its flat.  LEAVE A SEEM ALOWANCE AT THE ENDS
Do the same thing for the other side.

For the outer fabric put it right sides together and sew down the side with a seem alowance large endough to put a zipper in.  Then sortof flatten it out.

Then lay it so the seem is over the zipper and sew down either side.  LEAVE A SEEM ALOWANCE AT THE ENDS.  Unpick the stitches going down the middle (or you could leave the stitches in untill the end and it would probibly make attaching the top to the sides easier)

Make your straps (sorry I didn't get a photo) sew them to the sides. Sew all the side peices together.  LEAVE A SEEM ALOWANCE AT THE ENDS

Sew the bottom to the bottom leaving a great big hole. you are going to be turning things insideout through this.
Trim the corners.

Sew the top to the top being carefull not to sew through the lining fabric (wich is easy because you left a seem alowance)
Trim the corners.

Make your pockets for your lining.  I chose to make elastic pockets.

Sew up your lining the same way, but sew it with larger seem alowances because your lining has to be a little smaller than your outer fabric.  And leave an even larger hole in the bottom, you are going to use this to sew closed the hole in the bottom of the outer fabric.
Trim back your seem alowances.

Turn right side out by reaching in the outer bag, grabbing the zip, then pulling.

Sew closed the hole in the bottom of the outer by pulling it through the hole in the lining and sewing from the inside.

Sew closed the lining.
