21  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Fabric Christmas Tree on: May 24, 2009 08:53:09 PM
This is a Christmas Tree my Stephanie and I have been working on since December. We finally finished it on Saturday, May 23rd. This was made by request of a friend of Stephanie's. The friend's husband made the frame. Seen below. (some of the pictures were taken with a cell phone.

The final tree, it stands about 4'6" tall.


Then we added some batting.

This one shows the fabric on top of the batting and some of the leaves. We hot glued the leaves on.

This is the inspiration tree. It's only 12" tall.

Here's the comparison in size.

Critique and Criticism appreciated.

I used kokoleo's tutorial for the side pockets and shape of the bag:

I added the back pocket and interior zippered divider. Next time I will interface the zippered divider.

I made this for our pastor's wife who is going to be a grandmother in august. She wanted a bag that she could use when she had the grandbaby and for her laptop other times.

Front of the bag. Two side pockets.

Inside of the bag, with large zippered divider.

Back of bag with large pocket.

I used this tutorial to make the Tea Wallet.

Instead of the button, I used a snap.  I also added the "Tea" with my new machine - Brother SE350. I just love it.

A friend suggested that these could be used as hostess gifts.

Thanks Christy for the tutorial.
24  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Goodwill Placemat on: May 16, 2009 07:30:15 PM
Found six placemats for $1 a piece at Goodwill. Sewed up the sides and added the bamboo handles that I had in my stash. I have to figure what type of handles to add to the others because I have no more bamboo ones. What do you think??

 This pattern is from the Spring Issue of Quilts and More. I had fun trying to find fabrics that went well together. My friend wanting me to try to get the colors that is on the front cover of the magazine. This is what I came up with. This pattern was so easy to make. I altered it a bit, which was also easy, by enlarging it from side to side and height wise.

I had some extra of the main fabric, so I made her a tissue cozy.
26  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My first Messenger Bag(lots of pics) on: May 11, 2009 05:58:05 PM
I made this for my cousin in South Carolina. It was mostly trial and error. Still have to make the handle, it's going to be nylon webbing and adjustable. I wanted to get your criticism.
Thanks, enjoy

Front of bag. Might do some black bias tape around the edge of the flap. Once the strap is in place the gaps on the side should go.

Back of bag

Showing back pocket with two snaps.

Inside showing zipper with elastic to the right for a pen.

Side pocket

Finished bag hanging.

Detail of strap. I actually bought an old bag at Goodwill (they were on sale today 50%off) and took it apart. Used the strap for this bag, saving the zippers and buckles for future bags. This saved me money and time.

The bag full. It was holding 12lbs. I road tested it for my cousin to make sure it could take the weight.

27  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / FSU and UF zippered pouches and drink cozy on: May 09, 2009 01:52:06 PM
Florida State and University of FLorida zippered pouches. I also bought some fabric for Duke, LSU and Alabama, just need to get more zippers. Found a great deal on ebay for zippers.

Monogramed soda can cozy. Used my new Brother SE350 (loooooveee it).

I've been busy making bags. For customers and for gifts. C & C appreciated.

Large tote (13"W x 10"H) with matching wallet

Large tote: made for a 1st grade teacher that is retiring after 35 years of teaching. The lining fabric has the Navy seal, since both her husband and son are/were in the Navy.

Small tote (10"W x 8"H)

Small tote with matching zippered pouch - instead of pocket embroidered initial.

Extra large (16 1/2"W x 13"H) given to a friend that is a Missionary to Tajikistan. I added a yo-yo over the magnetic clasp (didn't take a picture of it)

Didn't have to do much cutting here, since the fabric already came like this.

one more

Small tote - made a little differently. Added strips in between the colors.
