22  Super bright first quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by GamerGirl on: March 07, 2009 02:28:28 PM
So after buying my sewing machine in November I taught myself to sew and after sewing about a million purses and zippered pouches I decided to try a quilt. It has its imperfections, but I LOVE IT!

Here's a picture!

Thanks for looking!

I received today from paintindiva. Well technically i received yesterday, but my mail is the worst thing ever. In fact had I not confronted them with my delivery confirmation, they wouldn't have given it to me.

Anyways on to the fabric!
The super awesome fabric! With purple and green and stars and OMG IT'S SO FANTASTIC!

I got a box today! My roommate came in and told me there was a package. I ran down to the office to go pick it up.

I think this box came from maiziemama.

So pictures!

Opening the box!

Everything all laid out

Magazines and a book!

Yarn and ribbon!

Bag of stuff!

My roommate and I have been going through the bag of stuff. It's so neat. I found really adorable button stitch markers!

26  Emma Tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by GamerGirl on: January 10, 2009 07:03:33 PM
So my best friend Emma is a med student. And always has tons of books and scrubs and notes to carry around. I decided that she needed an amazingly stylish bag to carry all this around in.

The fabric is from Joanns and I love the outer fabric because its the perfect color green and the embroider on it is pretty.

The inside is lined and has a pocket. There is also a pocket on the outside.

The bottom of the bag is an oval shape and I've never tired to sew something circular to something straight (the tube that was the rest of the bag) before, and it took me a couple tries around the corners. The seam ripper and I, we were good friends by the end of this.

I still need to add a magnetic closure to the top and some sort of closure to the outer pocket.

I used a vogue pattern, and the bag ended up being much bigger than I expected. But I am totally in love with how the whole thing turned out. I had to call Emma and tell her to look out for a package, or I totally would have kept it for myself.

27  Black Brocade Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by GamerGirl on: December 13, 2008 07:07:13 PM
So I've been learning to sew and trying progressively harder projects and trying to learn different things with each project I do. This purse taught me pleats! I love pleats apparently, I no want to put them in everything Smiley

Anyways this is from a simplicity pattern. The fabric is some stuff I picked up for half price on sale at Joanns. Its lined with black satin.

(For some reason this picture makes the fabric look funny and I'm too lazy to retake it)

Close up of fabric:

28  A purse and a laptop sleeve in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by GamerGirl on: December 06, 2008 06:31:51 AM
I recently bought a sewing machine and this purse was the first thing I made


My dad went to school at Univeristy of Virginia, so when I found UVA fabric I had to have it. Hopefully this will fit his macbook.

29  Apron for my mom for christmas in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by GamerGirl on: December 06, 2008 06:27:31 AM
So I bought myself a sewing machine recently, and I am making christmas presents. This one is for my mom. I used a McCalls pattern.

When I thought I was finished I decided I didn't like how the exposed seams on the inside looked, so I bound them.
