21  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: Amy Butler Weekender Bag sew-a-long? on: June 02, 2008 04:18:25 AM
Great job everyone... ive been watching for a bit Smiley

Now the big news....
Im midway through FOUR weekenders atm, for a family holiday. Quite enjoying it though, theyre all nearly at final construction point. Will try and take some progress shots, but will definately take some finished shots of them all (The 4 are all different too.. for my stepfather - tools, for my brother - our football team colours with an embroidery of their logo, for my mother - roses, and for me - a geometric flower print).

But right this moment I need a favour... since I have a really badly sprained ankle (cant even shower myself) Im staying at my parents and grabbed some stuff to work on the bags from my place today... what I really need to do is cut strips for making the bias binding/cotton cord cover ... but I left the pattern with the measurements at my house (I know how, just not exactly the dimensions) ... from memory its about 1 inch wide and no idea how long? (I do have my piping cord with me, but I know the length is longer than the bias binding needs to be)

So can someone pleaseeeeeee look at their pattern and tell me how wide and long my fabric strips for the bias binding for one bag needs to be? Itll mean I can do a whole bunch of work whilst im here, since I cant walk or anything, cept to hobble from one spot to another with my crutches.

On a side note... at the hospital before getting xrays on my ankle, I laughed to my mother saying 'at least its not my sewing foot!' haha. Good to see my priorities!

Great work! Even if they do take you a bit of time, you can feel proud when you see them on your little one Smiley

Can you tell me.. was the gusset on the original pattern, or something you added? Im checking out the patterns you refered to, but dont see it.. of course im new to diaper sewing patterns, lol

29  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Re: What do YOU want for Valentine's Day? on: February 12, 2008 02:00:13 AM
Ive hinted at fabric too! haha

To be honest? I desperately need a kettle, and I told my bf id find that very romantic! haha But I know he'd already shopped, so no idea. He is taking me out to dinner though. I guess I just figure when i really NEED something rather than want, and cant afford it, why cant that be considered romantic? Itd mean he really worries/cares/listens! lol

I think the first thing thats obvious is that you care! Looks like a  very good quarantine time is coming up for your lil eccie girl. Im not sure if you've said in the few things I've read, how old is she? Gorgeous babies they are, and get spoilt more than human babies!

One note: im not sure how an african grey compares, but our female eccie loves tearing woven baskets appart, bit by bit, so if the grapevine basket isnt something you want destroyed, becareful! Whilst our babe will sit up on the handle as well, she just loves ripping pieces off the sides lol Good thing we love her!
