1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / "Hands On" Mother's Day Gift on: May 08, 2010 07:31:08 PM
Hello everyone--I have put together yet another bag. It seems as though that is the only thing I have any success with. This one is for my mom for mother's day. My little girls handprints are appliqued on the front.

I hit the mother load at an estate sale awhile back ago on some vintage fabrics and just got around to putting something together with it. Found this tutorial online and started sewing. What do you think?

The Tut is here: 

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Little Pet Shop Playmat on: April 30, 2010 06:45:32 PM
My little girl has a fascination with the Littlest Pet Shop figurines. She constantly plays with them sitting at her little table, but I wanted to make her something a little more fun and easy to use. So I put together this little playmat for her. Lots of scrap fabric, some felt, and a piece of prequilted fabric for the back. She tried it out this evening and sat still for 45 minutes! She's three so thats like a marathon in this house.

It has a road, house, zoo, flower garden, pond, and a tree. My favorite is the zoo.

4  COOKING / Dessert / Mountain Dew--in cake form--for my husband! on: April 19, 2010 02:25:18 PM
Okay--so two weeks ago I asked my three year old daughter what kind of birthday party we needed to have for her daddy... Off the wall she tells me we should have a mountain dew party (dont know where that came from) He drinks it all the time! So I thought Id go all "Ace of cakes" and try my hand at cake decorating instead of sewing. I think Ill stick to sewing! Here is his cake--in all of its un-glory!

And just for fun--a picture of my 31 year old husband acting like a three year old!

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bag for my momma! Courtesy of me and my late grandmother on: April 04, 2010 07:17:19 PM
My grandmother passed away in November this past year and my mom has had a hard time dealing with it. She kept a few of my grandmothers shirts but didnt want to wear them--so she gave them to me...and I turned them into this bag... Its not perfect but my mom really likes it. It still has pins in it in the picture--but I have since taken those out and stitched around the top.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Flowery Goodness--FINALLY! on: April 02, 2010 04:42:26 PM
I finally braved up enough to try out a pattern for a halter dress for little girl today and it turned out rather nicely. I used Simplicity 6908 for this one.

Comments and criticism are welcome!

7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Scrappy Little Dress on: March 28, 2010 08:16:52 AM
I love everything I see on this board but can't seem to figure it out! Ive tried patterns and they turn out awful so I thought I would give it a go on my own.

I have lots of beautiful fabric but Im afraid of messing it up so I tried this one with scraps. It turned out okay but Im still not satisfied.

The little girl likes it though.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Art Tote Frenzy on: March 07, 2010 10:20:30 AM
Lately, I have been in a bag making frenzy and can't get enough of the little art/crayon totes Ive been seeing here on craftster. Ive made several, one for my girl, and two others for friends. What do you think?

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Fun Spring bag--for 3 bucks on: March 02, 2010 10:12:13 AM
 Grin I put this together sometime last week and just finished the handles today because I ran out of fabric. It consists of 3 fat quarters (courtesy of Walmart for $1.00) and some quilted fabric I had laying around. This is only my second bag and Im quite proud of it!

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / WOW WOW WUBBZY..WUBBZY WUBBZY WOW WOW!! on: February 22, 2010 04:51:30 PM
 Huh Okay, ever since I started on this guy, Ive been singing the theme song to Wow Wow Wubbzy, so I couldnt help but title it the same way.

I put this together out of some felt in about 20 minutes for my little girl. She absolutely loves Wubbzy and you don't really find him in stores so I figured Id make her one. He's quite easy. I freehand drew all the shapes, then stitched them together and stuffed. Im sure she will like him when she get's him tomorrow.
