1  Paisley Wallet-My first!! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by HobbysGirl on: January 09, 2011 08:43:02 AM
Hello Craftster peeps!  Yesterday was a snowy day here in CT, so I sewed all day to make this!

The outside is quilted, and there is 16 card/ID slots, 4 money/coupon/receipt slots, and a zippered coin pocket.  It also has a magnetic clasp.  But I'm pretty stinkin' proud of this since it's the first wallet I've made!  I hope you like it too!

Top section-8 card slots and 2 money slots:

Bottom section-8 card slots, zippered coin pocket with money slots on either side of it:

And here was the view from my kitchen table this morning.  I'm not really a snow person, but this was so pretty I had to share it.

If I make another one, I'll use a different interfacing and cut it so that the interfacing isn't in the side seams for less bulk, and I'll make it just a bit bigger so I can topstitch around the whole thing for a more tailored look.  One reference I used called for a product called Stitch-n-Shape.  Has anyone used this before?  How does it work out?

Thanks for looking!

2  Happy Halloween! quilt top in Quilting: Completed Projects by HobbysGirl on: October 31, 2010 11:11:17 AM
Happy Halloween!  Usually, I don't get too excited about this holiday, but I have good reason this year!  I made a Halloween-themed twin size quilt top.  The fabric is mostly from a Halloween fat quarter bundle from http://www.thequiltplace.com/ supplemented with more fabric from the Fat Quarter Shop.  The pattern is from QUILT magazine, but for some reason isn't available on their archives.  So far, this is just the quilt top, but I still wanted to share!

(Freebie shot: my kitty Arwen!)

I just realized after finishing this top that I tend to make very busy quilts.  I like it here, but I'll have to work on that in the future.  Enjoy your spooky Sunday!
C + C welcome!

3  My first quilts this summer in Quilting: Completed Projects by HobbysGirl on: September 29, 2010 04:47:09 AM
Hi Everybody!
I just wanted to share pics of my first two quilts I made this summer.
Here's the first one: 

It's a bargello-style quilt from random stash fabric.  My favorite is the Tinkerbell fabric.  I quilted is stitch-in-the-ditch style.

The second was from a pattern from a magazine that is now in the trash, sorry!  It came out this summer.  It's made with the Metro Market fabric collection.  This quilt was given to a friend of ours who survived a bad car accident and is now healing.

This was quilted outline-style.

I hope you like them!

4  First Knitted Projects! in Knitting: Completed Projects by HobbysGirl on: November 02, 2009 04:14:30 AM
Hi everybody!  I just wanted to share my two first knitted projects.
The first is Edgar the Plot Bunny!

Edgar is helping my sister with her month of writing for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).  He's winking and has a heart tattoo on his backside!  Made from a white sparkly acrylic yarn and with Spud and Chloe's Rabbit pattern: http://www.spudandchloe.com/blog/2009/09/rabbit-free-pattern/  I sent Edgar as part of a NaNoWriMo survival kit with music, healthy snacks, good chocolate, and a little Asian print drawstring bag for Edgar to travel in.  My sister loved it!
Also, I finished a stockinette stitch scarf from Lion Brand Homespun yarn.

Hope you like them!

5  New apartment means new curtains! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by HobbysGirl on: June 20, 2009 01:45:47 PM
New apartment + no painting = new curtains!
DH actually designed both sets of curtains and helped pick out the fabric.  We chose cotton fabrics because one of the best features of this place is how much light w/o heat it has and we wanted to keep that to some degree. 

His study: black country print toile with ribbon loop tabs

His favorite scene:

Living room: blue top border with casing and blue flowers with green leaves on a gold background.  Also my first french seam ever!  So easy!

close up of the fabric:

There's a pillow to come for the living room in matching fabric, eventually!
What do you think?

6  First Tote Bag in Toille in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by HobbysGirl on: June 20, 2009 01:36:46 PM
So, I made my first bag!  It's a tote bag out of decorator fabric.  The outside is red toile and the inside is a maroon plaid.  It has a pocket on the outside front and it has lots of pockets inside for all my stuff.  I made this to be my music bad, so it has places for my tuner, earplugs, metronome, etc.  I'm pretty proud of how it turned out!

Here it is with my stuff in it:

I didn't put interfacing in it so it's slouchy.  I'm even debating going back and fixing it.
Ah well.  What do you think?
