21  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Tote bag for the teacher on: May 16, 2008 06:16:32 AM
My daughters teacher is retiring this year.  She is a crafty person so making a gift rather than buying it was in order.

I used some preppy fabrics from my stash of thrifted clothing.  The pants were Lilly Pulitzer and were $1.98.

I hope she likes it!

22  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Spring Doll Quilt on: May 16, 2008 06:07:03 AM
For the Four Seasons Quilt Swap.  It's made of thrifted clothes and some Kona Cotton.

I put some triangular pockets on the quilt so the recipient can insert a dowel for hanging.  A tutorial on this technique is here.  It's really easy to do.

This was my second attempt at a quilt for this swap.  Here is the one that didn't work out.

Haha Gwensdad is loving y'all's comments!  He IS really good at color and design, but he hates having thrifted clothes all over the house.

I needed a bag for a swap so I started pulling out thrifted clothes from my stash.  Gwensdad paired these two prints for me:

I used Vogue 8406 view B.  As is common in Vogue patterns, it had a million pieces but the effort was worth it. 

This bag took up a lot of fabric, so I had to use scraps from another project to line the inside pocket and for the lining bottom.

This bag is currently winging it's way to Australia and will cross paths with a bag made there for me!

25  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / St. Patrick's Day bibs on: March 06, 2008 06:13:03 PM
For babies of Irish ancestry and those who are not but want to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in style!  These bibs are backed with a coordinating shamrock print and there is a layer of nylon inside to prevent moisture from soaking through.

This turned out so well!  It will be a birthday gift for a friend.

I used a thrifted corduroy skirt and linen jacket with McCall's 3772 view B

To make this bag:

Here is what the bag looks like open

The lining is made from the jacket linen and I used one of the jacket pockets for an inside pocket.

27  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Winter Doll Quilt for swap on: February 07, 2008 10:10:03 PM
This is what I made for the "Winter" project in the Four Seasons Quilt Swap.  The design is based on a block in a quilt hanging in my LQS.  The tree trunks are pieced, the green triangles are appliqueed and the whole thing is machine quilted.

(The quilt is not crooked - I was holding the camera at an angle)
