1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Fleece Nautical Blankets on: October 28, 2010 01:13:00 PM
This isnt really quilting and I couldn't figure out where else to put it.. so... hope this works.

These are just no-pill fleece with novelty cotton print binding.  I embroidered the kid's names on them.  I think they'll make great gifts for the person who "has everything". ;-)

The blankets are 36x36 inches and super cuddley!

Thanks for lookin'

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Another Daisy Purse= Madison Print on: October 28, 2010 12:58:36 PM
Here is another of my Daisy Purses... named Daisy b.c thats my fav. flower and this is my fav. bag style.

This print is Madison.  7oz Cotton canvas.

It is lined with a candy pink/white striped fabric.  Also with a removable base inside that coordinates with the outer fabric.  Magnetic snap closure, zippered pocket inside.

C&C welcome.

*Here is a photo with the bag base insert

I'm currently stock-piling my bags, so wont be listing this one for sale... perfect chance to gain feedback.


3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Skullz Wristlet on: October 22, 2010 01:20:31 PM
I used the last of my Alexander Henry "Regent Skulls" to make this wristlet and a matching tote (not pictured).  I used fusible fleece to interface... The strap hardware is temporary until my current shipment of hooks comes in, but you get the idea.  The idea for this wristlet is to coordinate with a tote and to be easily hooked around the strap of the tote to carry essentials (i.e. lip gloss, keys, phone... notice lip gloss is more essential than the later two, haha.)

Anyways.  It has a nice plush feel to it and i'm very pleased with it.  I hate to see this fabric go :-( I love it so.

Enjoy, C&C welcome... and I'm working on tutes for my previous posts ;-)

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Daisy Purse **Added Tute for Removable Bag Base** on: October 19, 2010 05:36:05 PM
This is the first bag that I have made using hardware on the handles and I'm hooked, no pun intended.

The fabirc is Daisy Chain from Amy Butler.  The lobster hooks were upcycled from an old (last season ROSS find) handbag.  This bag has a magnetic snap closure, interior zippered pocket and removable bag base (which can be washed).  This bag is interlined with medium weight fusible as well as med-heavy sew-in.  It holds it's shape beautifully... I'm crazy about the colors. :-)

Thanks for looking, C&C welcome, of course!


5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Linen Tote on: October 19, 2010 05:29:40 PM
This is an unlined linen tote with Gerbera Daisy Cotton top, which is interfaced with sew-in interlining as well as fusible interfacing to make it hold shape.  The top band is double-sided and includes a magnetic snap closure.  Also, the gingham handles are padded.

I made this bag in a few hours and left it unlined to allow for it to be easily folded and carried in your everyday handbag to use as a reusable tote.

My favorite part of this bag is the pleating, the more you put into the bag, the more they flare, giving the bag a dress-like shape.

Thanks for looking and C&C welcome!

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Custom Diabetic Handbag on: October 13, 2010 04:22:43 PM
I made this for a lady who is a diabetic, she carries her testing supplies in a clutch and wanted something a little more stylish to carry around but that also gave easy access to her testing kit.

The zippered pocket was the biggest challenge, once I got through that the rest was a breeze.  C & C welcome!

My good camera broke the morning I took these photos, so I used a horrible old digital camera for them, thats why the quality stinks!

Thanks for looking!
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Hobo Skulls *Pic Heavy* on: March 09, 2009 06:54:07 PM
I made this as a "thank you" gift for a friend of mine.  I used some home dec fabric, Polka Dot Maggie, and Alexander Henry's "Regent Skulls".  I used these tutorials for the zippered lining pocket http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/2007/02/zippered_inner_.html and for the top zip (which i did with some tweaking since i cut the fabric wrong) http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/2008/08/easy-tutorial---how-to-insert-a-concealed-top-edge-bag-zipper.html

I've dubbed it "Hobo Skulls" :-)


Interior pockets (i used the regent skulls to line the zippered pocket as well) :

Inner zip pocket:

Back of bag:

I wish I took better pictures of the top zipper and also I ended up sewing a little zipper pull from the "regent skulls" it wasnt fancy, but it was cute.

Thanks for looking, let me know what you think.
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / "M" Bag on: March 04, 2009 06:02:13 PM
So I got a new embroidery/sewing machine for christmas and decided to make a bag to warm it up.  I was basically just practicing, i.e. "quilting" embroidery, and zippers...

I put a zippered pouch in the middle instead of in the lining:

Embroidery detail on straps:

The whole thing:

Thanks for looking!
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My Diaper Bag- first sewing project on: March 04, 2009 05:56:19 PM
I made this back in October before I had my daughter in November.  I chose black & white b/c we didnt know the sex of the baby and it was the only gender neutral fabric I had on hand... I'm very proud of the way it turned out.

It has four large outer pockets:

An interior zippered pocket:

And a bottle pocket and cell phone pocket (although I keep her pacifier in the "cell phone" pocket, haha):

I used a thick piece of cardboard for the base of the bag, next time i'll use a piece of thick plastic of some sort.

Thanks for looking.
