1  chopped up diaper bag/mega tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by artery on: September 26, 2007 04:36:17 AM
i was getting sick of the diaper bag i was using. but it was the perfect size, and had all the right number of pockets. so i chopped it up, and used it as a pattern.

the bag is far from perfect, but it's perfectly functional. now to pick all those loose threads off it.

i was up late, and started surfing craftster... zomg.

this whole thread rocked my face. and i made a bag too!

note to self: when doing a french seam, really trim the excess. and trim it evenly. sigh.

5  finally getting my sewing mojo back *img heavy* in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by artery on: September 19, 2007 09:35:55 PM
i've been knitting only, pretty much all summer. i finally got the urge to start making bags! woo!

so in honor of fall arriving soon (i hope!) i broke out the corduroy and wool, and chocolate. because every good sewing venture needs chocolate.

and i still don't freaking know how to resize pics. sorry!

6  my vintage pillowcase dress - picture chunky to say the least in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by artery on: July 20, 2007 08:46:24 AM
so, after seeing all these amazing recons, i decided to jump on in. i've had this fabulous vintage pillowcase lying around. only for the longest time i didn't think it was fabulous. and that's why i chopped it up first, instead of turning to my really awesome ones.

i used one of Beans' 18mo size dresses, and i hope it will fit her properly when she does get into it.

so, without further ado, i give you the dress Beans will not wear until next summer.

(i'm still trying to find my red ribbon. what i have in the shoulders is too thick for the sides. and i also need buttons on the back, and a decorative button or 5 on the front. minor finishing details that i'll do on her next nap.)

i'm kinda retarded sometimes when it comes to being so anal about details. i wanted ribbon to support the button holes.

after sewing the skirt into the bodice, i encased the top half of the seam in bias tape. because even though my stitches are crooked, they'll be crooked and covered in bias tape, dang it.

i'm also proud to say, that even though the pictures are deceiving, i sewed a nice even circle when i joined the top and bottom. for once in my life.

Edit: still can't find the ribbon. but i stuck the baby in it anyway

well, i finished three this week. all unbeaded. i'm stash bustin all my yarn that could make gauge for this hat, since it's such a brilliant pattern. the first one i knit in the movies, and the other two were knit watching tv. there are very few patterns that i can seem to memorize, and this one was one.

the blue and grey ones are drying after needing a little blocking. the yellow one is ready to gift!

here are pics of my three odessi (?) that i finished this week.

the yellow one is blocked and ready to rock
the blue and grey ones are drying.

the yellow was lambs pride, the blue was lambs pride handpainted i think (i got it a year ago) and the grey was some sort of tweedy wool katia i think that i also got last year.

also, here is the early christmas gift socks for my hubby. i've just gotten to the heel - the blue is a little bright in the picture, it's actually a little more subtle in the sock. also, this is fair isle work, not the duplicate stitch they recommended. feh. oh, and this is the first sock using the techguy pattern, modified a little, from knitty.

does anyone know how to do short row yarnovers? i've searched all over the place for a good tutorial, and my brain just cannot get it.

9  inspired by all the cool diaper bags on here - PICTURE OBESE!!! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by artery on: September 21, 2006 01:24:56 PM
i was on here about 2 days ago, looking for good ideas for my diaper bag. i found a great tutorial for a pocket on a diaper bag, and here's the result. tute link is first tho. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=38622.0

here are my pictures...

me modeling the front of the bag, nice and low slung too...

the back of the bag with the changing pad and vinyl bag for dirties inside it. the exterior pocket is sparkly silver vinyl.

the top of the bag... you can see the little offset zipper pocket. there are a set of magnetic closures on each side of the bag, and then one in the center. this way it closes and opens very easily without needing too many flaps or zippers.

i forgot to rotate this one... this is the exterior elasticised bottle pocket, inspired by the tute. you can see one of the magnetic snaps open up top.

this is another unrotated picture, a closeup of the exterior fabric.

this is the side with the zipper pocket on it, and it has 3 elastic pockets as well as the center magnetic snap.

this is the side with flat pockets, 3 of them. the picture obscures it, but the pockets completely line the interior of the bag.

and finally, a closeup of the sparkly vinyl changing pad.

the materials were:
a vintage 60's dress for the exterior
some clearance home decor fabric for the main interior
a full size sheet from the 70's for the eagle and stars, and stars on the strap
a felted red scarf cut in half, and sewn into a long strip for the strap
and about a yard of clearance vinyl scraps.

thanks for looking! now if the baby would hurry up!

this is my second liesel.  the first i knit on 9's with some nature spun in a sunny yellow color. gag. but it was a gift for someone else, so i had no real choice on color. i did have to start it like 5 times before my brain wrapped around the lace pattern...
 the second is also knit on 9's with 3 skeins of paint box i was given for christmas.  i like the scarf larger, as it blocks so beautifully.  any ways... i'm about 3 feet into it, with 2 to go.
