1  Re: Damask Tile Coasters in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by mabeswife on: December 14, 2009 07:12:16 AM
I made some of these yesterday and my mom and I hot glued felt to the bottom of the tiles. I also found some cool scrapbooking stickers that I had socked away and used them on top of scrapbook paper. I'm really pleased at how they turned out.

The pink and white ones are for my brother's girlfriend and the travel ones are for me. Smiley I plan to make two more sets for my mother-in-law and sister-in-law. Super easy, cheap, and quick.

I love these and have only made one of them that came out decently. I've only been sewing about a month but I really want to perfect these because I love them so much! Here's a picture of mine. I have issues cutting the pieces straight and then the folds don't line up. And my husband has to do the snaps for me because I'm inept.  Shocked

5  My first large purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by mabeswife on: August 25, 2009 06:59:46 AM
I'm still a novice and have been making little things here and there, so this was the first large project I've tackled. I used Simplicity #2750. It wasn't hard at all, as it was mostly straight sewing, but cutting out all the fabric was time-consuming.

The toile fabric was leftover fabric that my MIL had used to make curtains, so it's pretty sturdy. The interior fabric was some that she had used to make pillows (she gave me a box of scraps last week). I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I only wish it had some pockets or something on the inside. But, I guess I can make a bunch of little pouches to hold all the things that seem to fall to the bottom of my purse. Smiley

6  Re: Headbands and Scarfbands-- New with Picture Tutorial, First One. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by mabeswife on: August 22, 2009 02:25:59 PM
I made one today, without the knot and hangy-down-thingies because I had issues with stuff up under my hair line. Anything underneath makes my hair bump up and look silly so I just sewed on the hair band and was done. It's so cute but I have an oddly shaped head and it's not perfection. It does keep the hair out of my eyes and I have to wear glasses, so fabric works best for me. Next time, i'm going taper it more so that the ends that meet up with the hair band are skinnier. Like I said, my head and hair are weird.

P.S. Pay no attention to the ugly bath board in my bathroom. Our house was built in the 60s. Tongue

7  Cute tea wallet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by mabeswife on: August 17, 2009 11:59:33 AM
I used this tutorial -- http://blog.christyscreations.com/?p=482 -- to make my BFF a tea wallet (she loves tea!). I'm a newbie to sewing and this is the best thing I've made so far (I've made roughly seven things in the past few months). I love the fabric, although the bluish fabric was very thin and liked to gather up on the ends.
