1  Zip bag from recycled argyle sweater in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Jerome on: February 23, 2006 09:32:16 PM
I started sewing little bags last year.  I made this one out of a sweater I had bought for myself awhile ago...I washed it and it shrunk a little too much. I really need to take better care of my clothes...but it made a really cute zip bag.

I'm going to try to find some more sweaters to recycle at thrift stores.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your kitten..it makes me feel kind of misty-eyed, he looks like my cat Tilden when he was a kitten. Now he's 17lbs and 7 years old.

P.S. the bed is great too...

Our wedding was VERY simple.  We were married this May in South Lake Tahoe at a hotel on the lake.  We just had dinner after the ceremony in a restaurant at the hotel.  After dinner we had cake and then went gambling.  I am NOT one of those girls who had her wedding planned from childhood and relished all the details.  I was into making it low stress and simple.

Here is the monkey I got from Kymporter!  He is so cute, thank you so much!  I never thought of making a sock monkey from bootie socks, it's really cool how the pompoms from the socks are incorporated into the monkey.  And I got a bonus pair of socks to boot!

6  Re: PLEASE HELP with my Brother XL500 Sewing machine IMAGE HEAVY in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by Jerome on: May 07, 2005 10:50:47 PM

Okay, tried to take a pic (having a hard time getting a non-blurry close up).  I guess it's actually coming out from under the metal flap where it connects to the little hole.  On the inside edge of the bobbin holder (where you slip the bobbin in) there is a slot that you slide the string in, under the metal flap to where it meets the little hole.

Geez, sorry I'm not explaining this all the clearly... at least that is how I do it and I've definitely been able to sew with the machine set up that way.  I think when the string is coming through the big hole the thread jumps around too much and that's why it's getting jammed.

to-day was our first day back after spring break, & when i woke up this morning, i just did not have any energy [daylight savings time blues, maybe?]. but after my morning class, i went to check my mail, & found Jerome's package waiting for me! it contained a really lovely belt [which i am currently wearing] & an awesome wristlet-bag [which is the perfect size for all the stuff i carry around with my anyways - including my knitting]! the belt is made from ribbon [i think!], and has dragons crawling all over it, & the pouch is this great green corduroy, lined with fabric printed with earths! [i'm an earth dragon, so this is perfect!] i'm so excited now - i can't wait to bring my new bag around with me! thank you so so so much, Jerome! <3

oh, & photos, too!:

my computer, raziel, modelling the wristlet-bag and belt, :3.

detail of the belt & the outside fabric of the bag! [i love the turquoise topstitching!]

detail of the inside fabric. how adorable!

me, modelling bag+belt! [bag contains TONS of stuff in this photo - sans camera, at the moment!]

again, thank you so much, Jerome! & thank you to urbankitty, too, for organising this swap!


You are very welcome.  I'm so glad you liked it!!  I meant to ask about your waist size but was running late so just took a guess based on your pant size. I realized when trying it on that how low you wear your pants can make a big difference in how long your belt needs to be.

Thanks for posting to pics too!

I got the greatest package in the mail today from Melissa. The bag and bookmark are absolutely adorable....I love them both. The book is called Refuge: An unnatural history of family and place and it looks really interesting. Melissa also included a cute short story about Jane Austen (are you a fellow romantic lit. fan?) and a really sweet note. Thanks so much, I love it all.

I showed my mom, who is a librarian, and she is thinking about making her co-workers bags and bookmarks for Christmas next year.

That bag is adorable!!  Is it denim?  I love the fishie.

Hi all, I finally got around to posting the pics of the awesome bag and bookmark I received from littleone!  The pictures aren't great.. the bag is actually a lavendar stripe rather than pale blue as it looks in the pics. The bag has a really cool guitar print on the side that is also on the bookmark.  Enjoy!

Thanks again littleone!!  I'll be sending mine of to Sqrlgrrl on Monday!

10  Heavy Metal Sock Monkey in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Jerome on: November 28, 2004 07:06:15 PM

Just wanted to share SOMETHING after looking at all the cool stuff everyone else has created.  I made this last year for my friend's baby.  Her husband is in the band on the tee and do-rag (yes, it is very crooked).

Has anyone sewn a sock monkey with a sewing machine?  I did this one all by hand and it took forever.  Was thinking about trying to whip up a few more with my machine but wasn't sure if there was any reason why it wouldn't work out as well.
