That is the cutest $1 dress I have seen in a long time! The fabric is really great. I've made the Anda http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/show/29 but I think I'll have to try this one too.

There is nothing like sewing for therapy. I come home from work and/or grad school some days super stress, but I sew for a few hours and feel so much better after.

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / porca tote! on: March 02, 2009 07:34:19 AM
I've been using the language part of my brain too much these days, so I've been sewing a lot to counteract that. 
Here's a bag I made after a long Saturday spent at the library.  It is an unlined flat bottomed tote with pleather handles.  To keep the inside looking neat (for myself and no one else) I encased the seams with red bias tape.  The fabric is home dec weight  Etsuko Furuya's Echino.  It's very floppy so it was hard to photograph the inside but essentially for the pockets I made a flap with the pockets sewn on and attached that to the two inch of fold over from the top, that way there is no stitching on the exterior of the bag to ruin the perfectly graphic nature of the print.  Thanks for looking!

You look adorable!  So cute, it looks like a slightly sexier version of the Amy Butler Anna Tunic I just finished (but haven't posted yet) the fabric is even similar.  Are you inside my head?

I wish you had ask for some yarn shops Smiley

I know this is a pretty old thread, but I'd like to know where the nice yarn shops are in Lisbon.   I'll be going there in two weeks with my Portuguese husband and his grandmother.  I can not wait to get there!

I used french paper for letterpress work when I was in college.  It's really beautiful stuff and you don't have to buy a ton of it.
I'm pretty sure they'll send you sample packages too.

The Jillian's booth is Black and white, which always thrills me,  I used picutres from it for a present for my hubby.  There is also a booth in the food court at Downtown Crossing (color).

hmmmm we're the same size.  I sure do need a new project before I go on vacation.  If you have the courage to do it, I bet I can muster some too.

Now I've been told, if your bum is any less than Paris Hilton perfect, you should run as fast as you can from any knit skirts.  How do you feel about this pattern as far as that goes?  I think it is super cute, but all my hours at the gym will never get me perfect rear.

I really wanted my bag to look like my grandmother would have back in '66. I think I got that.

This is a really cute bag and I love the applique...I'm in the learning fazes of appliques but you did a great job.  I had to comment on the above quote though.  Ended up reading it 3 times and just started laughing.  I was born after 1966 (born 1972) but being so close to that year, I had to laugh at the mention of your grandmother carrying a bag like this in '66.  Is she about 55 or 60 then?  Smiley

My grandmother if she were still alive would be close to 80 by now (I'm 23, and low in the grandkid birth order) but she was a pretty hip lady and I think she was grateful for the the loosening up of society that the 60's brought about.  Anyways I could totally imagine her rockin' a bag like that and a flower print muu muu.
