11  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Birthday serger! on: January 28, 2006 11:03:33 AM
I got a serger for my birthday!  A total surprise from my husband!  Now what do I do? The free lesson is 3 weeks away and I'm kind of scared of it!
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / commisioned messenger! (big pics) on: January 24, 2006 02:32:47 PM
I sent an email out to a few of my friends to let them know about my etsy shop, and one of them got back to me saying my bags looked really great, but she needed a different size messenger,  She asked if I would make her a custom messenger bag and she gave me the measurements she wanted.  I said of course and got to work.  She's coming to pick it up tommorrow, I hope she likes it!
This is the bag on me:  (Yes, that is an 8 months pregnant belly peeking out from behind it)
oops, I thought I did a better job of cleaning the mirror, sorry.

Front pockets under the flap:

I used stitch witchery under the ribbon before it stitched it down.  I didn't even discuss the ribbon with my friend, I wanted to surprise her with it.

13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Sewing like a madwoman... (IMG HEAVY) on: January 12, 2006 06:54:32 AM
I've been working on a lot of different purses because I've been planning to open an Etsy shop.  I've been having lots of fun. Sorry about the huge pictures.
This is a large totebag, lined with golden yellow satin:

This is a denim messenger bag, I embroidered the stars on there and the lining is kind of silky and is the exact blue of the stars:

Same messenger bag, the fabric is kind of a reddish gold and this one is also lined in the yellow satin:

There are 2 pockets on the sides, for a cellphone or pens.

Small messenger bag, the color is a bit off in the picture. It's more of a buttery yellow. Lined in pink moire, it has a pocket inside and on the back, So it's actually reversible.

Large messenger bag. The pocket on the front is slightly crooked, but I still like it:

14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / PINK wallet (BIG pictures) on: January 12, 2006 06:38:36 AM
I made this wallet yesterday! It has 6 card slots, 2 large pockets for bills and coupons, receipts etc. And a large zippered coin pocket.  It turned out even nicer than I thought it would!  The fabrics match, the seams are straight, my hubby even said it looked like something you'd see in a boutique.
So I'm pretty proud...

15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / baby dress for girl on the way! on: January 12, 2006 06:32:03 AM
I'm expecting a baby girl at the end of February and I've been knitting away on lots of girly things.  This dress is for next year, it'll be too big for this summer.  I got the pattern from "minnow knits, too!"
from the library. It's knit with mercerized cotton.
16  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / does this make sense to you? (pattern trouble) on: November 16, 2005 01:04:17 PM
And if it does, can you explain it to me?  I normally can read patterns really well, but this particular step of this pattern has me stumped:

"Rounds 12 to 19:  Beginning on the 12th round increase every other round 11 times (53 sts). Work even for 7 more rounds, ending at the inside side seam, turn."

That's verbaim from the book. Up to now, everything went great and I have the right # of stitches (31 sts). Every other row to me means rows 12,14,16,18, but if I increase 11 times for each of those, I'll have too many sts. 
This is from 'simple crochet for cherished babies' by Jane Davis and I haven't been able to find anything about typos by googling it.  The pattern is buttercup footies. Please help!
17  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / embroidered purse on: June 21, 2005 01:28:54 PM
   I love flamingos!  I got the image from an online coloring book.  Trying to get it on the dark denim sucked!  I ended up having to mostly draw it on using a white tailors pencil.
18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / messenger bags I made! img heavy on: June 21, 2005 01:22:11 PM
I used the messenger bag tute for these. thanks!
I made this one with denim and pink lining, it's reversible!  Small pockets on each side for pens or a cell phone. I love flamingos because they're pink!
The inside with stuff: wallet, extra diaper, etc
Denim with blue stars, the lining matches the stars!
Thanks for looking!
19  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / first totes post! img heavy on: June 21, 2005 12:59:19 PM

My fave: (green with pink lining)

Stripey one with matchy zippered pouch:

Denim and pink W another stripey pouch:

Flapped jordy w/pink lining:

Hope you like them, I worked hard!
20  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / the 2 year wavy bedspread on: June 21, 2005 12:44:33 PM
I made this. It didn't take all of 2 years, but I worked on it on and off for 2 years. It's cheap red heart yarn and I sort of made up the pattern.  I saw the waves in a book in another city 4 years ago and remembered it looked cool and figured out how to do it on my own.  I was trying to make it for a queen size bed, but I think it's big enough for a king. 
On my bed. (see how far it hangs on the side? Huge!)

A close-up of the pattern:

I'm glad it's over, but I'm really proud I stuck with it.  That's 4 kilograms of yarn. (That's 8.8 lbs, americans)
