11  Sewing Bug has Bit me-- Picture heavy (sorry, they're kind of big too!) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ibmomof2 on: August 08, 2006 08:28:44 AM
I just recently started sewing again. I did a swap where I had to make a bag, and I haven't stopped since. Here's some of what I've done...

Pleated tote bag, the brown is a lightweight velvety fabric.

Inside Brown Bag

I decided the brown bag wasn't good enough for my swap pal, so I made this one to go with it.


And one for me... The inside is bright yellow.

And a mini clutch...It closes with a magnetic snap.

Inside..I so love this pattern. Definately making more of these.

I also made a case for sock knitting needles

Here it is filled with my needles... I still need to make one for myself.

This little bag you wear across your chest. I have a large barrel bag style purse that I always use, but the straps constantly fall down. I needed something small/simple/light that I wouldn't have to worry about losing when I have my hands full of whatever stuff I'm buying.

Inside. I had my cell phone, keys, change purse, pen, and a small credit card sized wallet, and still had room leftover.

12  Re: Odessa (Grumperina for MagKnits) KAL in Knitalongs by ibmomof2 on: February 07, 2006 07:12:51 PM
I started and finished my Odessa Superbowl Sunday. What a quick and easy knit! I already had the Rowan Yarn and the beads when the pattern came out. I used a dark grey color and the beads are dark grey. They reflect purple, yellow, blue and green. You can't tell in the picture though.

I am really happy with the results, I normally think I look silly in hats. I'm going to make two more. Both with the Cashoft, one lime cream with clear beads and one red with black beads for my daughter. A ladybug hat if you will.

Oh...Those glasses, I just got them today and I have to say...The hat didn't look half as cute when I wore it without the specs!

13  Zippered Pouch Survival Kit in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ibmomof2 on: October 07, 2005 08:36:55 PM
My knitting group and I went to a Fiber Festival last week-end. We had to drive two hours away, and I figured being that far from home for the day required some necessities.

I made these little zipper bags from this tutorial http://www.thimble.ca/?p=146 and then filled them with some things I thought we might need throughout the day. I also made the little tags. if you look closely, they have a bunch of fall colored leaves on them. We were going to a Fall Fiber Festival, so it seemed fitting.

I used some fabric I've had lying around for a few years now. They're not the greatest colors/patterns but the girls loved them!

Each bag had all of these things inside. Different colors of course. And you should know, the tissues came in real handy when the port-a-potty had no TP in is. The sanitizer also played a big role in our day, hehe. Smiley

The tutorial was very easy. I will definitely be making more of these!

14  Needle Holder in Knitting: Completed Projects by ibmomof2 on: October 07, 2005 07:47:58 PM
I've been searching for a needle holder for all my double points for a looong time, but everything I saw was either not quite right, or too expensive. So I finally got off my butt and made my own. I found one I liked online, "studied" the picture, and voila!  The inside is black fabric so it might be hard to see all the pockets. I also left an opening for a ribbon tie but I put it on the wrong flap and didn't notice until everything was done. I'll probably just add a couple snaps instead. 

I've got an idea for a circular needle holder, similar to this one. If only I could find decent fabric locally. walmart and Joanns (my only local fabric shops) just aren't cutting it.

Here it is closed.

First fold, like a book.

Unfold like a book again, and here's the top flap to hold things in.

Lift flap and we have needles! All of my double points.

And here's  a close up so you can see both row of pockets.

And yes those are my feet in the picture. I had to stand on the chair to get the whole holder in the frame. Thanks for looking!

I used the Lion Brand Thick and Quick, and it turned out o.k. The only thing that bothers me, just a little, is the holes from the decreases. I think I remember reading a couple pages back, that it had to do with the yarn being "consistently bulky" or something like that. Anyhoo, I really like it, and am wearing it right now. I am NOT a hat person, so that says a lot. And here it is...
