1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / iPod Sock on: December 08, 2009 12:31:21 PM
I made this for my iPod touch so it won't get scratched in my purse. It was super quick. I used left over sock yarn and size 2 dpns.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Instant Gratification Scarf on: December 08, 2009 12:27:58 PM
I made this for a friend for christmas. It took about 6 hours of work. I used Wool Ease thick and quick and size 15 needles. I'm in love with it. I kinda don't want to give it away.

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Lace Diamond Socks on: December 05, 2009 08:18:08 PM
These are my first finished pair of socks. I love them. I wish I could wear them everyday.

The pattern is Lace Diamonds from the Vogue Ultimate sock book. The yarn is Ty Dy socks by Knit One Crochet Too. It took about 2/3rds of the ball of yarn.

4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / What's black and white and red all over? on: March 17, 2009 11:27:36 PM
The Newspaper Quilt! (insert budabum cha here)

This is the second quilt I've ever made, its a small lap quilt that matches the decore in my living room. Perfect for warming the legs on the couch while watching netflix.

I learned quite a bit from my first quilt and was happy with this one, but still have somethings to improve on.

Without further ado.... Pictures!

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Masculine quilting patterns? on: March 07, 2009 02:50:20 PM
So my older brother and his girlfriend just bought a house and I am super excited for them both. I was already kicking around the idea of making a quilt as a housewarming present, but my brother specifically requested one, so now I'm definitely making them a quilt. Since this is a gift for my brother, I was hoping for a more masculine quilting pattern. Anyone have any super ideas?

6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Super bright first quilt 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!
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Emma Tote 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.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Black Brocade Purse 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)

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / A purse and a laptop sleeve 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.

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Apron for my mom for christmas 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.
