11  Re: Let's see your sewing machine!! in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by try.fail.repeat on: July 24, 2008 04:02:30 PM
Well, my first machine my dad bought for me at a garage sale down the street from my house for $20 almost 10 years ago. It's a Kenmore 1750. Came with the instruction book, stitch pattern disks, button holer and zipper foot. It's one of my babies, but we've had our differences here and there. Roll Eyes
MY second machine I bought about a month ago. Its a White Superlock 2500. I love it! It's made tailoring clothes and sewing in general so much easier! Grin

12  What a DRAGon Bag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by try.fail.repeat on: July 23, 2008 11:47:21 AM
I made this bag about a week ago. It's pretty huge! I'm 5'5 so the pic of me holding it should show how huge it is. I added 1 large pocket, another big pocket that I divided so that I had a sunglasses pocket and a detachable pouch for " woman stuff". Also has magnetic snaps.

13  Cute as a Cupcake Clutch! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by try.fail.repeat on: July 23, 2008 11:40:42 AM
I made this clutch yesterday for a friend of mine who is moving to Chicago next month. She told me she wanted a clutch and left the design and fabric options up to me. I used magnetic snaps to keep it shut and a detatchable bow made of the lining fabric.

Gizmo modeling it for me.

14  See & Sew B4645 Hand Bags (Pic Heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by try.fail.repeat on: June 09, 2008 03:31:11 PM
I've been sewing for about the past 6 years and only recently have started using pre-made patterns. Most of the sewing I do usually involves my tailoring shirts so they fit me.

My recent conquest involves me making 3 different bags from see & sew pattern B4645. I really enjoy making these because they're very straight forward. The only trouble I've had so far is when I'm sewing the fabric around the bamboo handles it's nearly impossible to sew a straight line so there's just a few stitches that jumped a bit here and there.

Each of the bags are fully lined and have a large pocket on the inside. They are all made out of 100% cotton and also have a layer of heavy weight interfacing in between the layers of fabric.

They're large which is great since I tend to carry everything but the kitchen sink with me at all times. Wink

WHat do you guys think?
