1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Buttercup Bag on: April 06, 2011 08:03:19 AM
Hi all!! So I tackled the Buttercup Bag (tutorial/pattern available at http://www.made-by-rae.com/2009/02/free-buttercup-bag-sewing-pattern.html).  My first attempt ended up being more of a makeup bag then a purse and was a little floppy and wonky along the top.  I altered the pattern and made the bag about 3" longer.  I also used a medium weight interfacing on the body of the bag and heavy weight along the top piece to make it stiffer.  The only thing I still would change is the length of the strap, which was twice as long as the pattern called for but was still too short for me. 

Anyway, hope you enjoy!  If you have taken a crack at this pattern and have any other suggestions, please let me know!

I made this guy for my mom's birthday using the tutorial http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/?p=777.  He was fun to make and I like him so much, I took a bunch of crazy pictures with him before turning him over  Grin

Hope you like him too!!

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My First Purse!! on: March 22, 2011 07:44:23 PM
Hi all!!  I am a beginning sewer and just love coming on here and looking at everyone's projects.  I find myself loving to finish my projects even more so I can come on here and share too!!

Anyway, I used the tutorial at http://www.vanillajoy.com/hobo-bag-tutorial.html.  I made it for my step-sister's birthday, which is Friday.  I hope she likes it as much as I do!  And I hope you do too!

The lining with interior pocket.  The tutorial mentioned that in retrospect she would make the pocket fabric longer and I totally agree

And the action shot:

Thanks!  Grin
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pencil and Tool Bags on: March 15, 2011 03:12:51 PM
Hi there, all my fellow Crafters!!  I just started a sewing class in January and have been loving it!!  As my first "on my own" projects I made a couple of basic zipper pouch bags for my husband. 

Here is the first, just a basic pencil/makeup bag with zipper:

And here is the 2nd.  He wanted a bag he could put grommets on and attach to his bike for tools.  It is made of vinyl so that it is water resistant.  And it is lined with the same fishies as the above bag Smiley

For both, I loosely based them off the tutorials found here:

Hope you enjoy!!  Grin  I am working on a Hobo Bag now for my step-sister's birthday and will post pics as soon as it is done!! 
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Magnetic Spices! on: January 21, 2011 08:47:19 AM
Hi there!  This is my first post, though I have been loving this site for months.  I have been working on this spice rack for months and encountered a few setbacks, but it is finally complete!  And I love it!  I could not wait to take pics and post it on here so that I can share my craftiness with all of you who have inspired me  Grin

The wall panels are just magnet boards I bought at Walmart, covered with fabric and drilled in to the wall.  Suggestion: Drill the holes through the panels before covering with the fabric.  My first round with this, the fabric wrapped around the drill and tore the whole thing off.  

I used super crazy strong magnets and had a very hard time getting them glued to the jar tops.  In the end, since the jar lids are metal, I didn't glue them.  The magnets stay on the jar lids because the fabric causes it to be less attracted to the panels.
