1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: The tool book... not quite a purse. But with step-by-steps on: July 17, 2013 09:22:44 AM

This is the before.

I made this because... well I make things. But mostly because I make things in lots of places and I kept loosing my tools at the bottom of the project bag. The next one I make will be for serger/machine tools.

It really is more of a sub unit of carrying tool. Specifically my tools for etextiles projects.

It has been super useful and taken quite a beating. Though the next one I make is gonna use flat elastic.

Here is the post with the step by steps: http://thecraftyavenger.com/2013/06/tool-book-no-1/

Thanks... my favorite part of this dress is that it after drafting it only took about 4 hours to make... most of that in the hemming.

5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: how do you organize/ keep patterns? on: July 30, 2012 01:11:21 PM
I keep a data base on line that I use to look up on my smart phone when I shop. The patterns themselves I don't cut into, I trace off the size I need on very cheap tracing paper. The traced off versions I keep in large clasp envelopes with the name of the pattern on them. The store bought patterns and instructions get ironed and put back in the envelope it came in and stored in file boxes.

It would really help if you gave more info on the type of shirt you are trying to make... button up? stetchy knit etc.

If it is the later there are a ton of tutorials on line for making a pattern from an existing piece of clothing. And if you choose a piece that fits you already it cuts out a lot of guess work.

So I was looking for a stylish sweatshirt for those days when a coat is too much. I used a basic raglan sweatshirt pattern and a circle skirt and serged the seams and darts. I then installed a high collar inspired by many a sci-fi movie. Then installed an exposed zipper.  It was a pretty quick project and not expensive.

4 yards of fleece, 1 zipper
About 3.5 hours worth the work mostly in drafting the pattern.

That is super cute. Love the asymmetrical ruffle collar. Just enough visual weight to carry the long line of the top. Your sister is very lucky.
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Simple Scarf... 20 years in the making on: February 21, 2012 12:08:14 PM

This is the project I finished this week. It is a dark red ribbed scarf done with Wool-Ease chunky yarn and a fat fat crochet needle. Anybody could do this scarf. I hadnt really done any crochet in *gasp* 20 years.

I think I am diggin' this crochet business.
