1  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Built On Respect Charity Cookbook on: July 30, 2009 02:35:57 PM
Well, the "ladies" of BSS are at it again! This time the challenge is recipes, because we are making a Cookbook to benefit Build on Respect.  We don't know how much the books will be, that depends on how many recipes we get. We want all of you to send in your favorite recipe(s) and if you have a friend who is killer in the kitchen have them contribute too.

Even though we are trying to raise some funds for Build on Respect we don't want the cookbooks to end up costing too much. So, we decided we would go for some good old fashion sponsor action. There are three levels of sponsor, for ease of discussion lets call them Gold, Silver and Bronze. Gold Sponsors get their name and/or link in the book, in a larger font and an optional logo for 10 dollars. Silver Sponsors get the same in a smaller font for 5 dollars and in case this wasn't absolutely obvious Bronze will get the same in yet a smaller font. Oh, and that warm feeling you get from helping someone out! But, hey if you have money you want to throw around or would like to place an ad in the book email us @ bs.stitches@gmail.com

All monies raised (once the cost of the books is covered) will be given to Built on Respect.

Along with your recipe we are going to ask that you sign your name (craftster or legal or whatever) on to a piece of white paper and either scan it or take a picture of it for us to use for the book. If this is somehow too hard for you to do, or not something you want to do, don't. Its completely optional.

Recipes can be emailed to bs.stitches@gmail.com

Just a few old stitching I did with sublime patterns.

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Blue Flower Purse My First Time With Handles! on: March 10, 2009 01:09:54 AM
So this was my first time using handles for my purses as opposed to fabric straps. It came out better than I expected but I did manage to sew them in a little off center.
The fabric is one I found in the remnant bin at Joanns and it is lined with plain white muslin. The handles are a real pretty teal blue plastic and it closes with white velcro. It is interfaced for some extra sturdiness with peltex 70.

To match my wallet I posted before I decided to make a matching laptop carry all bag.
The wallet- https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=293403.msg3336076#msg3336076
Its huge its shiny and it almost killed me. Took me about 5 hours spanned over 2 days. Did I mention it was all my own pattern? Yeah that was just a blast to draw haha. I had so many problems with it, broke 3 needles one of which flew at my face and almost killed me I swear, I almost chopped the top of my finger off thank god it didnt go deep enough, and the zipper was the biggest paint in the ass ever. Its not as crooked as it looks in the pictures, it likes to roll in at the seams because I was lazy and didn't sew in any piping.. I still need to add velcro to the outer pockets and I havent even sewn the lining in yet, I wanted to just show it off and take a break for a while haha.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Red Glitter vinyl and Zebra long wallet on: February 21, 2009 02:29:07 PM
Well I jumped on the wallet bandwagon. Used this wonderful tutorial http://elily00.wordpress.com/tutorials/wallet/ I am pretty proud of it. It was totally a pain in the butt to sew but I managed to finish it. It was my first big sewing project of the type, I'm used to dabbling in smaller easier stuff. I'm working on a pattern for a matching laptop/carryall bag and a smaller bowling style bag as well. I forgot to snip my loose threads before I took my pictures. Ignore my messiness. Wink I'm so jealous of you guys who can take such gorgeous pictures of your work. I don't put enough effort into it. Just point and shoot and hope my creation ended up at least partially in the picture.

9  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 35 ENTRIES / Get organized! Jail House Rock inspired closet door organizer on: February 04, 2009 02:12:16 PM
Not only is this my first challenge entry but it is my first Craftster show off as well. Posting more is another resolution of mine. Tongue

After a long night of boredom, lots of Elvis, and a very big mess the Jail House Rock closet organizer was born. I don't know the exact measurements but let me tell you it is bigger than I am. The backing is interfaced black duck cloth. The pockets up top are separated into 4 pockets and 2 pockets to hold all my miscellaneous other things. The shoe pockets are what really killed me. They took forever, each pocket is a rectangle with an arch shaped piece sewn to the bottom and the attached. All together there are 16 shoe pockets, 4 rows of 4.  It was originally supposed to hang off of one of those over the door hook deals but after all the work was said and done I gave up and nailed it to the closet door itself. So without further ado I present to you The Jail House Rock closet organizer.

Sorry if the pictures aren't that great, my camera was acting shoddy. And of course it had to pick up all my dangling uncut thread. Tongue
