Thanks so much, my sister in law was inspired by a pic on pinterest! Love the tagline, btw!

Thanks! I am so glad you said that! I think the coordinating fabric really helps with that...and the best part is you can easily adjust the original strip size to get the size that's best for you. I made a smaller one using (7) 3" strips first.

Anyway, I hope someone somewhere uses this. I know I have been the beneficial user of some very easy-to-follow patterns and I was hoping to create one similar! Smiley

Thanks! I hope it's easy enough to follow, and read for that matter! The pic sizes were really making things difficult! And yes, I had several "leftover" pieces from quilts and other bags I had done and figured there had to be a stylish way to make them all go together! I hope the tute really does come in handy! Smiley

This purse is a great way to use up some of those coordinating scrap pieces you have lying around. Besides the lining fabric, the largest uninterrupted pieces I used were (4) 4.5" x 16" pieces. This purse in particular is a finished size of 19" at its widest, 15" at its narrowest, and 11.5" deep.

I made this bag for my sister-in-law for Christmas and after a successful trial run (which I used for a white elephant gift), I decided to do my FIRST ever sewing tutorial. Please let me know what y'all think of the bag and the tutorial. Is it clear or too long to bother reading (let alone try!)? Anybody see anything I can do to make things easier on myself? Please feel free to ask questions, as well! The picture size was giving me some issues, so if you can't read any of the steps, please let me know. I will post them in the comment section below.

As always, please do not claim this free tutorial as your own or use to produce for profit. On that note, I'd LOVE to see if any of y'all try it. Please post in the comments (if you can?!) or email me at boatsandsews@gmail.com. Thanks!

No problem! Thanks! Check out Fat Quarter Shop online. They have wonderfully coordinated fabrics for either sex. AND they're already cut! and we all know that's half the battle!

Thank you! I knew she wanted a "mum" but I didn't know how to get it to hang on the door, so I figured a wreath hanger would work best. Hobby Lobby had the little farm animals for about .70 cents a piece, so I used them as the farm element for the John Deere part of the room.

Thanks! and YAY! I'M SO IN! I already have some charm packs I'm waiting for in the mail!
8  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Hello Luscious! Moda Charm Pack Baby Quilt on: March 21, 2012 08:47:45 AM
I'm kind of obsessed with charm packs and baby quilts that don't look very baby-ish. My customer picked out the charm pack and left the rest up to me. I know the middle turned out a little lopsided (oops!) which I partially attribute to the backing. There is no batting, just the minky back. This blanket is SO soft. It turned out a decent sized 38" x 42." I used the zig zag stich for the first time and love the effect it had. It took me about 5 hrs to make, since the majority of the cutting and ironing is already done for me! Thoughts? Critiques?

Aw, thanks! And the best part is, it's SO easy! As a tip, I DID learn that the ones that turn out best are ones that have a lot of contrasting colors, like this one. I made one that was more muted for Christmas, but it didn't quite have the impact! Of course, it just depends what you're looking for, of course!
10  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Upcycled Picture Frame Earring Holder! on: February 29, 2012 06:04:18 AM
I never even thought of that! Thank you for telling me. Now I get to brainstorm on different ways to remedy that. Smiley I really like yours! Where do you find the small mesh, though?
