Prompt: July 5 -Guild of the Boring and Unnoticed
Team: Clan of the Creators
Project Name: LSU key fob
I made this key fob for the fiancee of the friend who got the LSU wallet. I had wanted to make her something but wasn't sure what to make until I saw the key fob kit when I was picking up a zipper. It took about 30 minutes to make this and only took that long because I was trying to avoid singeing my fingers while turning the 1/4" seams. And I had to rip out the stitches at one point because I sewed the seam super wonky. I hope the next one I make doesn't take that long because it's a bit embarrassing to take THAT LONG on something so simple Tongue

Project Name: Sewing basket
I made this to keep the toddler out of my sewing stuff: scissors, thread, bobbins, etc. It saves money because I don't have to buy a sewing basket AND if the toddler can't reach the scissors, he can't cut himself and wind up needing stitches Tongue

My latest projects:


They're drawstring deck bags Smiley I made them for my local game store by request of the owner. He's bought them to give out as prizes for a Pokemon tournament later this month: top four winners get a bag, the fifth is for him because he loves Pokemon, especially Pikachu.
The colors are off because this is from my Instagram and I used a filter to try to fix the colors (didn't work).

Project Name: Drawstring Pokemon deckbag
I'm so happy that I was able to get the bag the size I needed on the second try! The drawstrings are just crocheted chains because my sewing machine kept mangling the ones I tried sewing for it. Dang thing will sew teeny doll clothes but eats drawstrings. Go figure Roll Eyes

Project Name: Pokemon thread catcher
This was going to be a deck bag for the owner of our LGS, who happens to be a good friend. But I goofed and didn't make it tall enough to close over the top of the deck box nicely. So instead of helping out a battling Pokemon trainer, it will be helping me in my battle to keep bits of thread off my floor.

Project Name: Bet you CAN eat just one cookie
My husband and I have been doing a pretty good job of eating healthier so I wanted to make us a treat. But I knew if I made just a plain old sugar cookie that he'd eat way too many because he has NO self control when it comes to home-baked goods (I do: barely). So I decided to be devious and add crushed red pepper flakes to the mix. Grin Being a girl born and raised in Louisiana, I LOVE hot and spicy stuff and have been eating it most of my life. My husband, on the other hand, does not like very much spicy stuff. He tried one and ate half of it before he gave it to me saying "Nope, that's not right. I don't like it."


I made cookies at midnight. I swear, I haven't lost control of my life.

27  50s vintage purse patterns? in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by RedheadWithThread on: June 25, 2017 08:15:53 PM
I love 50s retro/pin-up girl/rockabilly inspired things so when I saw this in the remnant bin at my local Walmart (I never saw it on a bolt! I missed out), I just had to have it:


The polka dot/cherry combo just screams ROCKABILLY PURSE to me, and I want to make it with a 50s style purse pattern. But I'm not having any luck finding any vintage/vintage style patterns (unless I want dresses and crop tops: there's quite a few of those out there).

Do any of y'all know of any patterns, free or paid? Any help would be appreciated.
For reference, it's just a couple inches shy of being three quarters of a yard.

Sewed up a wallet for a friend:


It got its own post on the bag/purses/wallets board.

Project Name: LSU Wallet
Project Link: Here
This project probably shouldn't have taken five hours but I've been sick so Tongue A friend saw the scrap of LSU fabric I had draped over my sewing chair and asked if I could make him something with it so I made a wallet.

30  LSU Wallet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by RedheadWithThread on: June 18, 2017 09:10:09 PM
A friend from my hubs' Nat'l Guard unit saw the scrap of LSU fabric that I had draped over the back of my sewing chair and asked if I could make him something out of it. I suggested a wallet and he said yes, he definitely needed a new wallet. He requested "plenty of pockets" for all his debit/credit/gym membership/other cards.
So I went about looking for a nice wallet pattern with lots of pockets.
I found the Kentucky Bluegrass Wallet on Craftsy and modified it a little to give it more pockets (turned the ID pocket into another bunch of card pockets instead since I didn't have the clear vinyl I needed).

Folded:


For the interfacing I used Pellon Craft Fuse to make it stiffer/thicker:


Before assembly, showing the pockets:


The opening:


It's not quite as neat/crisp as I would've liked but I think our friend will like it Smiley
