32  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Velcro Pouch Tutorial... Quick and Simple on: February 08, 2007 06:52:41 PM

Velcro Pouch Tutorial... Quick and Simple

2 rectangular pieces of fabric cut the same size
male (rough) and female (smooth) strips of Velcro (hook and loop)
Interfacing (optional)

2. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y45/msbungle76/craftster003-2.jpg
About 1 1/2 inches away from the edge...
Sew the male strip of Velcro to the right side of the outer fabric .
Sew the female strip of Velcro to the right side of the inner fabric.
*Since I used very thick fabric, I did not use interfacing. If you want to add interfacing, do it now.*

3. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y45/msbungle76/craftster004-2.jpg
Lay the pieces right sides together with Velcro on opposite sides (not touching).

4. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y45/msbungle76/craftster005-1.jpg
Sew around, leaving 1/2 inch seam.  Leave a gap in the middle of one side so you can turn it right sides out.  Do not sew over the Velcro.

5. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y45/msbungle76/craftster007-1.jpg
Turn it right sides out and press with an iron.

6.  http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y45/msbungle76/craftster008.jpg
Fold the pouch like an envelop and press with the iron.  Make sure the Velcro lines up when you close the pouch.

7. http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y45/msbungle76/craftster009-1.jpg
Starting at the bottom corner, sew around three sides.  This step will also close up the side that was left open earlier to turn it.

Fill the pouch with cool stuff and close it up.

I made lots of these mini pouches to keep my parents iPod accessories organized.

33  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Magazine Tote Bag on: February 08, 2007 06:10:25 PM
I made this TOTE BAG for my cousin.  She's stuck in bed with a broken ankle.  I figured she could use a free standing bag to keep her magazines, crosswords, yarn, etc. while she's bedridden.

I slipped a frame made of plastic canvas between the outer and inner fabrics to keep it sturdy.  It turned out really great.  It stands up on its own with or without magazines in it.

34  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Circles . Ragging Off . Faux Beadboard - Computer Room MakeOver on: February 04, 2007 03:14:45 PM
Here's the computer room I redecorated. My husband and I did much more work than we anticipated, but it was all worth it! In addition to paint and paper, we ended up refinishing the hardwood floors and adding crown molding. 

I did 2 different paint finished on the walls.  I added a random circle border in the middle.  My beloved swoopy chair can only support the dog right now, but we'll be fixing the legs soon. See BEFORE pictures of this room and read more about the chair here.https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=49535.msg456073#msg456073 My mother and I spotted this rug at a warehouse sale.  It is perfect for this room!

You can read more about this piece of furniture here. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=73806.msg693573#msg693573
The gourds on top are drying out.  We grew them this summer.

On the top half of the room, I used 2 shades of Ralph Lauren Glaze and lots of cheesecloth.  I followed the directions from the  Behr Faux Finish pamphlet (Ragging Off) at Home Depot.  We used R.L. Paint because it was only $5 a gallon in the Oops section.  The bottom half of the room was painted solid green, but I didn't like it. I mixed the left over paint with some lighter paint and used a squeegee to create the Faux Beadboard effect. The FAUX BEADBOARD (Wainscoting) tutorial can be found here.  http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/rm_walls_types_materials/article/0,1797,HGTV_3806_1399303,00.html 

The CIRCLES!  This was my original inspiration for the room.  I got free (discontinued) wallpaper sample books from my local wall paper store.  I cut out random circles in all different sizes.  Then I used wallpaper paste to stick them on.

The computer desk came off the garbage.  It miraculously matches the other hand-me-down furniture in this room.  I reupholstered the iron chair, made the mouse pad out of a cool placemat, I made the pencil cup with scrap yarn and plastic canvas.  The shelves came from a garage sale.

In this photo, I made the magazine bowl and the topiary tree.  Check out the photo cut out of Jon Bon Jovi and me.  Cheesy

I made these curtains out of a sheet.  You can also see the crown molding in this photo.  I'm so proud that we figured out how to put this up.  It was hard!


35  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / iPOD CARRYALL with MINI POUCHES on: January 27, 2007 09:01:10 PM
I made this iPOD carryall for my parents.   They are travelling by car from New Jersey to Florida.  I also made mini pouches to keep their speakers, earbuds, cords, and ipod safe and sound. 

I used a combination of tutorials and some of my own brain power to put this together.  It was a serious headache at times.  It's not perfect, but I just can't stand to work on it anymore. Enjoy!

36  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Harry Potter Mini Scarf Bookmark on: December 04, 2006 06:28:36 PM
I'm pretty new at knitting.  It took me about 4 hours to figure out how to use the DPNs.  Once I did, I made a Harry Potter Scarf bookmark.  Actually, I made 3.   The first one I made looks like crap. The other two turned out pretty good.  I'm giving them as Christmas gifts.

In a book.

2 good scarves.

This is the first one I made.  It has many mistakes. 
I'll give it to the first person to PM me their USA address.

I made these felt name books for my cousins' kids for Christmas.
They were greatly inspired by Plumpkin https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=71926.0 and
bukkuh-bukkuh https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=133413.0.  Thanks for the great ideas!

39  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Discussing the works of Peter Calleson on: October 24, 2006 08:12:53 PM
Let me start out by saying that THIS IS NOT MY WORK. I received these pictures in an email and I was so impressed that I had to share them with all of you crafty people.   They seem to be cut out of paper and folded into 3-D shapes. The 3-D figure is still attached to the paper.  I don't know who designed these, but I thought I'd share them with you.

There are about 20 images in all so click the hyperlink to see more.


40  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Can I Buy Individual Iron-on Letters ? on: August 22, 2006 05:34:56 PM
Does anyone know where I can buy INDIVIDUAL IRON-ON LETTERS?

I need those fuzzy iron-on letters, but I only need certain letters.  I need 20-40 of each letter.  I would rather not buy the entire alphabet since I only need a few letters.

Please help.
