1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / I Made An Ironing Board Cover on: March 11, 2013 03:26:25 PM
I've been using my mom's ironing board for some time now and I've finally gotten fed up with how old and gross it is. It has serious stains from who-knows-what, and it will randomly collapse while I'm using it Sad

I was given a fancy new iron for Christmas so I decided to use that as inspiration. I bought a new ironing board, but instead of a full size one I found a cute little 'apartment' ironing board. It's perfect for me because I mainly sew small projects.

They match <3 I'm so happy with how it turned out. It makes a huge difference to my attitude while ironing haha.

For more info and pics, read my blog post. Thanks for looking!
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Another Variation of Napkitten's Accordion Wallet on: December 16, 2012 10:30:37 PM
My friend was looking for a wallet that was good for grabbing when she just needed to run out for a few minutes and didn't want to bring her whole purse. She had a small wristlet type thing but if she put more than a couple things inside it then it wouldn't stay shut.

I drafted a pattern to try and suit her needs, based on the accordion wallet pattern by Napkitten. This wallet is the prototype of the new design.

It is 6" wide instead of 8" and has 5 divided sections and 1 zipper pocket on the inside. It can easily hold most smart phones, and the divided sections make it easy to keep things organized.

There are 8 card slots on the back of the wallet instead of on the inside.

Comments and criticisms welcome. For more pictures and information check out my blog.
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Map Coasters on: September 06, 2012 07:30:03 PM
I found this idea somewhere on the internet and thought I'd give it a try. I used it as a personalized gift for my Dad because he is super hard to buy presents for. Each coaster has an image of a map zoomed in on a location that has some meaning to him: the house he grew up in, the family business, his favorite road trip destination, etc. I think he liked it, and told me I should make a set for my Grandpa using places that meant something to him from when he was overseas. It wasn't too difficult to make with a little help from maps.google.com Let me know what you think!

How do you get more out of a pattern that you might be getting bored of? Alter it!

I have used the pattern for this wallet a bunch of times and changing the size really helped it to feel new again. It was much quicker to make this small one compared to the original, and also much cheaper since it only used a fraction of the fabrics.

It's roughly 4" wide by 3 3/4" tall, and I think it turned out adorable. Let me know what you think!

This wallet was made with fabrics from Spoonflower. Has anyone here used that website before? There are tons of freaking amazing fabric patterns, but I don't understand why a fat quarter is 12$ and a full yard is 20$...

The pink fabric is from here.

The green fabric is from here.

6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Spike iPhone Case on: August 16, 2012 10:10:43 AM
I am a pegasister. There, I said it. I actually feel much better now. And even if you don't like My Little Pony, I hope you find Spike super cute.

I bought this case off of amazon and I love that I can customize how my iPhone looks. Ever since I got it I've been keeping my eye out for tiny cross stitch patterns that will fit on it's tiny grid of 22x43. If anyone knows of some teeny patterns, I'd love to hear about them!

Thanks for looking!

Check out my blog for more pictures and details.
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Accordion Wallets on: June 21, 2012 01:29:38 PM
I got a little carried away with the accordion wallet pattern I got off Etsy, but it's just so great. Even though it's quite a bit of work for each one I think it's totally worth it for how well they turn out.

I changed/added a couple things in the pattern for these wallets. If you want read about it or see more pictures then check out my blog. Thanks for looking!
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Wine Bottle Tote on: May 17, 2012 10:46:28 AM
I made this for my mom for Mother's day. I think it could also make a nice hostess gift or something like that. I made it padded with quilt batting so if it gets knocked around a bit it will be ok. It's 12" tall and can fit the normal size of wine bottle as well as those ones that are a bit wider. I was planning on sewing this completely by hand but I was cutting it close with time so I biked to a friend's house to finish the last little bit. My mom hasn't got it yet, I hope she likes it!

Let me know what you think. Thanks for looking Smiley

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Iphone/Ipod case 2.0 (with link to tutorial) on: April 27, 2012 09:45:23 PM
I made another iPhone case thingy Smiley

I also took oodles of pictures along the way this time and wrote up a basic tutorial for it on my blog. I'd love it if some sewers would check it out and let me know if it makes sense/if I'm missing anything <3 I'd post it here, but there are probably enough pictures to stretch the page because I don't know how to resize pictures on craftster >.<
Thanks for looking!

I finally got around to trying out Noodlehead's tutorial. I think it turned out pretty darn cute. The finished size is 8.5" x 5"

More pictures are on my blog.
