Oh, it's neat to see what everyone is sewing one, wow!!! 

I just recently got a new machine, I still haven't used all the bells and whistles on it yet, ha! But, I sure do love it!!!

It's a Brother Quilt Club 1000 and it came with all kinds of goodies, even a table to go around so I can do some quilting!!!  Can't wait to try my hand at that!

And, yes, I quickly moved the magnetic pin holder away from it as soon I realized it was sitting there, YIKES!!!!  Smiley

22  Cool Circle Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by PoodlyBooty on: May 05, 2008 02:24:30 PM
I just love this fabric!  I found the fabric at Hancocks.  The bag is not too big, and not too small.  It has one pocket inside, and two pockets on the outside which are located on each side near the handles.  Handy for a cell phone.  I put in a magnetic closure.  The inner has fusible fleece and it sits flat.
thanks for looking Smiley

Inner, with my homemade fabric tag I made with fabric sheets and through my printer.  Pretty cool that one can do that Smiley

And, just a pic with me holding it to show ya how big it is.  I like the size a lot.

23  Elvis Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by PoodlyBooty on: April 22, 2008 01:29:19 PM
I found this Elvis Craft Panel at Hancocks not too long ago and it was super easy to put together.  It said to cover the raw edges with bias tape and I really didn't like how that looked.  So, I made an "inner" bag with fused fleece, some pockets and it really made a difference.  I gave it to my neigbhor who just about peed her pants out of excitement, she loves Elvis!  This bag gave me some new ideas too.  Thanks for looking Smiley

The inner where I used some of the extra "Elvis decor" and attached to the pockets.

24  Two Wallets in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by PoodlyBooty on: April 17, 2008 02:09:21 PM
I made these wallets to match the "3-fat quarter bags" I made not too long ago.  Whatcha' think?  I've never made a wallet before, but y'all inspired me!  I just followed how my leather wallet is made and just winged it.  I think they came out pretty well, I still need to perfect it some more though. Smiley  I had to train my mind to think backwards when I was sewing the pieces together.  I wanted it to be turned and topstiched, which proved to be a bit more difficult than I thought it would be.  This "springy" one, I used a thicker webbing and I had never used that stuff before, so it was definitely a learning experience.

I also made fabric labels and my nickname is "Poodle" in-real-life and online so hence that name  Wink


matches this "Springy" bag which I gave to a very nice gal, she loves it!

I realized I should have used brown thread with this one later.  The inner is fusible fleece, and much easier to work with than what I used in the "springy" one.

25  The On-going Quilt blues in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by PoodlyBooty on: April 05, 2008 08:41:02 PM
I know I will finish this quilt someday, I'm bound and determined!  ha!  I managed to make sense out of the instructions and made it this far, but I just can't sew on it everyday.  Wheh!    Does anyone ever feel that way? 

I had to make a flannel board so I could see the blocks more easily.  Right now, I'm almost half done though. 

What do you all think?  I know there is a lighter green block in there that just doesn't seem to go too well.  I was trying to use up what I had in my fabric stash.  It's a Split 9-patch.

26  Another "3 Fat Quarters Bag" inspired by heartofmary *Made Another One* in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by PoodlyBooty on: April 04, 2008 12:46:52 PM
After seeing this post from heartofmary
Thanks heartofmary for posting about your bag and where you got the link!!!!

I just HAD to make this bag!!!!  It went together amazingly fast, I really enjoyed making it!!!

Whatcha' think?  I used mostly scrap fabrics I had and some new fabric I just found at Hancocks the other day in the upholstery/drapery section.  I had a button that was just perfect too!



Side view


I'm ready to make another one!!! Smiley


Well, I made another one this evening, it is so ADDICTING, ha, ha!

I gave the first one to my neighbor, it just looked good with her!

This time I made a inside pocket.  Also, with this pattern it says to use some of your fat quarters to make the handle.  Well, fat quarters are pretty thin and I don't think that's sturdy enough for a handle of a purse.  So, I put in some sturdy, durable fabric inside the handles.

27  Quilt block Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by PoodlyBooty on: March 21, 2008 02:41:42 PM
It's a Disappearing 9-patch quilt block on each side.  I am thinking I'll remove the green balls, and find something that goes along much better.  Thanks for looking!



Ahhhh, I'm back, I made a few changes.  I made a new inner part out out of some bright pink fabric, put a few pockets inside, installed a magnetic closure (a first for me, relatively simple) and added a new beaded pink/light green fringe that I found at Walmart of all places.  So, this bag is very "girly" and not me, not sure what I plan to do with it yet.  Fairly sure I'll give it away to a friend, hee, hee!
