1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Peek-a-boo knitting bag on: January 08, 2006 10:30:53 AM
DISCLAIMER - I've never worked with vinyl before, and I had a little bit of trouble when the feed dogs (the teeth that pull the fabric through the machine so it doesn't just sew in the same spot) on my trusty Kenmore failed to acknowledge the existence of the slippery stuff. I had to pull it through manually, and every now and then it would JERK ahead. But I was succesful in that it's big enough to hold my knitting, I can see into the bottom of the bag in order to retrieve lost notions, it's waterproof, and there's NO denying it is a bag. Added bonuses: 1) The pockets (I put one on the inside and one on the outside) are the PERFECT size to hold my knitting diary. 2)It won't look weird if I haul a huge bag into work - I never take big knitting projects in to work on during breaks 'cos I'm afraid they'll think I'm smuggling out 12 dozen eggs a day or something.       

So I realize this isn't the best looking thing ever, it's really functional. I wish i had enough vinyl to make a raincoat!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Poppy skirt on: January 08, 2006 08:06:08 AM
The poppies on the fabric must be opium poppies, 'cos I feel high when i wear it. I got the fabric from my late grandma's stash (a bittersweet project), it's pretty sheer and limp, so i made a red crinoline to go underneath it. I'd say there are about 3 yards of fabric, gathered and sewn to a red satin waistband (sorry you can't see it, the ol' man has only so much patience for taking pics of me spinning around the livingroom Smiley  )
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Robot Apron on: January 07, 2006 07:06:11 AM
I work @ a local bakery, and my friend Corey recently did me a huge favor by coming to work for me and saving my booty. As a reward,I told him I'd make an apron for him with a robot on it, as he's obsessed with transhumanism. He drew a picture to get the ball rolling, and i used it to design an apron. The only other place I found a robot apron here was in the robot swap, so I hope I've posted in the right place. Anyway - Ta-DAAA!               
   That's not actually Corey, it's my husband, but he makes a good model. Smiley The apron is sturdy black material, the robot is machine satin stitch, the eyes are shiny dark gray, and the bars on his platter are different shades of iridescent blue.

The pics are from my website....http://www.velvetelvitron.com
