1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Kaffe Fassett's Tropical Frothy Quilt on: July 27, 2008 09:40:06 PM
Here's my version of the Tropical Frothy Quilt.  I adore the fabric for the back.  I didn't have enough, so I put in a strip of scraps from the front.  Inside I put wool batting.  I plan to hand-quilt the blue triangles on the border once winter comes (when it's cold outside and I can snuggle under the quilt as I'm quilting it!).

Hey, just made this craft bucket in about 3 hours. It's for crafty supplies or knitting, etc. Kinda fun on a rainy afternoon.  Here's where I learned how:


I changed the pattern a bit.
1. I ironed interfacing onto the non-denim fabric for extra stability.
2. I put a circle of denim onto each section (the denim and the non-denim sections).  I simply opened the zipper of the jeans before sewing the circles onto the tubes.  Then I pulled it all through the zipper.
3. I didn't make a circle of cardboard for the bottom. The double denim circles hold it nicely.

I'm not really into Western gear, but for some reason, this piece of fabric spoke to me!  Yee Haw!

The front:

The back:

The inside pocket:

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Canada Day Bag on: June 29, 2005 04:22:08 PM
July 1 is Canada Day, so I decided to make a bag to carry around all day.  Here it is!  The front and pocket are dollar store flags, and the back is a bandana from the same dollar store.  Cost about $6 and I can use it for years!  (Only once a year!)  It is, of course, in Jordy style.

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Handbag - reminds me of the 70s on: June 23, 2005 02:37:23 PM
For those of you who remember the 70s, doesn't this fabric remind you of those flowers we used to stick into our bathtubs so we wouldn't slip?  And the lining reminds me of Spirograph!

The bag itself is a Jordy with a magnetic closure and a pocket.  It has interfacing, batting and lining.

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Simple Pink Asian Handbag on: June 23, 2005 02:31:37 PM
Here's a handbag I made!  The pattern is from "Bags With Style" by Stephanie Kimura, but it would be very easy to make on your own.  The corners are flat (not Jordy-style), and it has iron-on interfacing, batting and lovely pink lining.

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / beaded eiffel tower pillow - and NEW world pillow on: December 01, 2004 09:09:49 AM
I made this a while ago when I was going through an Eiffel Tower phase.  For some reason, I really like the architecture!  The pillow is beaded, in case you can't tell from the photo.  The pillow is about 7" by 10".

This just added:

Here's a world pillow I beaded a while ago.  I traced the outline of the world onto white fabric and then drew a few lines across as a guide.  The world/globe is one of my favourite "symbols" if you can call it that.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / beaded and sequined change purses on: December 01, 2004 08:55:55 AM
Here are some of my latest creations.  I didn't have a pattern - it was mostly trial and error.  I downloaded old advertisements and quotations and then just used iron-on transfer paper to transfer the picture onto heavy-ish white cotton.  Then I took a couple of hours to add beads and sequins.  Finally, I sewed the blocks into a purse (complete with a zipper, padding, and lining). They're about the size of a CD.

I made this one for my sister, who's an optometrist. The fabric is plain white cotton - it just looks wonky in the photo:

The back:

The inside:

Another one:

and the back:

That's enough for now, though I've made many of them.
