1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Hooded Baby Bath Towels on: March 09, 2009 12:59:00 PM
Here are some pictures of the new baby towels that I have made.  The towels are approximately 31" x 31" finished.  I also make my own binding to give them a more handmade feel.

There is a tutorial made by Break It Down Design - which is basically exactly how I make these towels (except I had sew the binding closed and I made a pattern for the hood): http://www.breakitdowndesign.com/chapter_2.htm

I love them all.  I actually made another one, but sold it to a friend. 

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Curve Flap Wristlet on: February 16, 2009 10:25:36 PM
Did everybody see the wonderful diaper bag that Gentle Quiet made?  If not - check it out: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=290378.0

It really inspired me to try to create a curved flap similar to hers.  But before I tried it on a large bag, I wanted to try it out on a smaller bag - that way if I messed it up, I wasn't wasting too much fabric.

So, I made this wristlet.  I learned that when you are making your pattern for the curve portion - over exagerate it.  On the paper, my curve looks exactly what I wanted it to, but then when I put it together, I would have liked it more curvy - like Gentle Quiet's.

I used medium fusible interfacing for this wristlet, I may consider using a more heavy interfacing and maybe even adding a layer of fusible fleece.  Can't hurt to try it right?

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My first Purse & Wristlet on: February 12, 2009 04:51:36 PM
My purse broke about a month ago and I have been walking around with my wallet and all the other stuff in my pocket.  I had a bunch of wonderful fabric that I had no plans for, so I decided to try and make my first purse.  

It turned out not too bad!  I made a couple mistakes, but learnt from them - I accidentally sewed the pocket closed... heheheee...

I used a pattern for the purse and wristlet.  Both were very easy to follow.  All the fabric is from Amy Buttler's collection and purchased from purl soho.
