1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Polka-Dotty-Ness on: January 31, 2007 01:37:24 PM
I know I know, polka-dots are getting kind of 'overdone', but I still like them! 

Halter-style top (Simplicity 4998):

Skirt out of the same fabric (New Look 6953):
[don't worry, I wouldn't wear them together... I think that would be overkill]

Red Polka Dot top (Butterick 5886, actually a dress pattern, but I just shortened it to be a top):

Thanks for looking!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Nothing Fancy on: January 26, 2007 02:21:12 PM
Here's are three knitted items I've completed.  For the baby sweater I used some instructions I found online, but it's basically just 5 appropriately sized rectangles that are sewn together.  Good project for a new knitter who doesn't know how to increase/decrease.  I sort of know how to do those things, but not very well... so I found it an easy project.  The hat and scarf are my own 'patterns', the scarf is simple ribbing, and the hat is pretty basic.  

(The pictures don't really show the items in the most 'flattering' manner, but I'm trying to work on taking better pictures of my crafted items, so practice makes perfect I guess.  At least these pics give the general idea. )

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / A Gaggle of Bags (well 6 actually) on: October 04, 2006 04:47:52 PM
I finally got around to taking some pictures, so I thought I'd share.

The last three are ones that I put for sale in a shop that sells them for me on consignment.  That's why two of them have tags on them that say Nickel and Dime, which is my 'company' name.  I really liked the bird bag and wanted to keep it for myself, but the owner of the shop ended up liking it so much she bought it from me, so at least it went to a good home Smiley
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Six Bags on: April 25, 2006 11:58:52 AM
Here are six bags I've made over the last year or so.  I finally got access to a digital camera, so hopefully I'll be able to post more projects in the future.

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / 3 New Bags (first post) on: May 22, 2005 09:39:06 AM

This is my first post on Craftster, but I have been 'lurking' for a while and have been very inspired by everyone's craftiness.  So, I thought I'd share some pictures of a few bags I've made recently, using the Jordy method (thanks for that awesome tutorial!)

The first is a zebra print bag, it was one of the first things I made after discovering Craftster.  I had done some sewing before, but not very much. 

This one is a polka dot bag.  The fabric is actually from a set of curtains I bought from my work for 1$.  I brought the bag to work yesterday, and my co-worker wanted one, so I offered to make her one for 5$.  (I panicked... but next time I will ask for more $ because even though it's a simple bag, it takes me a few hours to make and uses up supplies like thread etc.)

Here is the bag I made for my co-worker.  I used a similar fabric (also from my work, also only 1$) that used to be a valance.   

Thanks for looking and thank you Craftster members for all the great ideas.
