1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Summer Lily Walker Bag on: May 23, 2011 04:24:22 PM
I made this for my grandmother who uses a walker, as her current bag is becoming a bit battered. I'm still a bit shaky on bag construction, but this went together a bit easier than I had thought it would. Used a fusible batting and added interior pockets for both front and back.

Cute, are there little fabric strips across the opening?

I made 'tabs' on the football ones and last one from left over bias tape. I think ribbon would work pretty nicely, too.
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Porch Swing - new paint+mesh bottom on: February 28, 2011 02:39:44 PM
So, last spring my mom helped me sew new cushions for our patio/porch swing, which I posted here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=343376.0

I didn't get around painting the frame like I had wanted to until a month ago, when they came for their annual visit. And by that time, the fabric bottom had a serious mishap as the husband had sat down on day too hard, and proceeded to keep on going.  Cheesy

So- paint & a new bottom was in order - I used Rust-Oleum 'Painters Touch' in a satin Aqua and went to a wholesale fabric outlet and purchased a plastic-y mesh type of material, 2 inch grommets and 8 yards of cording.

The bottom bench was measured & enlarged - sides and ends folded over twice for grommet placement and room for it to be wrapped under the bars. The cording was zig zagged side to side on the bottom and then corners crossed and knotted.

Finally - enjoying it all with the kids

My daughter's class has an auction every month, in which they use 'class money' they have earned to buy items. Being the height of cold and flu season and in a class the size of a small regiment (respective ages 9-11) - my daughter asked me to make these for her class. As did her teacher. The last one I kept for myself Wink

Great, great job using scraps and it looks cohesive - scrappy but it all melds together. Smiley

 As far as the backing - it happens, but it's in your home, used and loved by you. that's more important. I'm far more impressed that all your quilting lines are straight and evenly spaced (something I can't seem to do!).

 I had picked up 2 charm packs for my mom as a surprise, but she decided she didn't like them (pinks, browns, greens - Nest by Moda). So, I used them to throw together these 2 smaller quilts for my twins for Christmas. They are a bit smaller than crib sized and the girls like to use them in the car as lap quilts or snuggling with dolls and the dogs.

Things get pretty wonky when you're in the final stretch and trying to get done just for the sake of getting it done.  Cheesy I did a D9P pattern for the center, backing was a solid panel on each ( pink & green, with contrasting bias tape).

that swing bottom & frame is the next project!
