1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / My daughter expecting first, need blanket pattern (croch or knit) on: August 22, 2005 06:56:49 AM
Just found out my daughter is expecting her first. Quite awhile back i made a blanket for someone that had a lacey edging with triangular shapes I believe. It was gorgeous.Now I cant find my pattern. Does anyone have a blanket pattern that you would be willing to share or know where I can find a freebie?I want something kinda lacey but not large opeings for little fingers to get stuck in with a fabulous edging.

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cherries Jubilee Dumpling Doll on: August 07, 2005 07:46:40 AM
I crocheted this doll this weekend.She works up fairly fast and is soo cute. They are a re-make of the Strawberry Shortcake Gang. In fact since this one looks so much like Strawberry Shortcake, I almost made the cherries into strawberries.I am going to give this to my grand daughter, but now my 16 yr old daughter wants one of the other dolls for herself.
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Still practicing on: August 04, 2005 10:08:59 AM
 Still practicing on this tote,trying to get the lining just right. It is looking a little better. fidget's advice is helping.You cant tell from photo, but the lining is dark blue with tiny red apples on it and green leaves.

This is a closeup of the monogram. Next time I am going to try a thicker one so it shows up better.
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / How do you get snug,smooth fit in lining of totes? on: August 04, 2005 05:43:20 AM
Someone mentioned making liner 1/4" smaller but then I had problems with sewing the top because the liner and cover didnt fit.Even in length ,liner seems a little long.I have seen some bags that have a tight smooth fit.How do I get that?
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Rouched Tiny Tote on: August 03, 2005 11:13:48 AM
There have been a few questions about how to rouche something. I posted a reply to one lady explaining how I would do it. Today i thought I would try it out on a tiny tote. It turned out so cute, I think I will give it to my granddaughter. It stands about 6 inches high.It really sits level, its just the way I have it sitting up on my railing
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / This is how I do rouching... on: August 01, 2005 06:08:57 PM
I have seen a few questins on here asking how to rouche a pocket.This is how I would do it...
1. cut out a piece of fabric the size you want your finished pocket to be.For example 3" wide x 4" high.
2. Cut out another piece of fabric the same height, but about dowuble the width depending on how thickly gathered you want it. Using the above example, cut it 4 " high x 6 " wide.
3. Gather up both 6 " wide ends till they are the same width as other pocket piece,3 " in example.
4. Then lay right sides together and pin gathered piece to other pocket piece.
5. Carefully sew along seam allowance all the way around piece leaving small section on an ungathered side to turn piece right side out.
6.Turn right side out, and pin to whatever you want to apply this to and sew around edges to attach.
I hope this helps somewhat.I would love to see any pics of this or after applied to finished item.
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My inverted A bag(guess thats what it is) on: August 01, 2005 05:25:27 PM
I made this purse from a combination of things posted on here.I drafted this pattern from one seen on here, but made it slightly smallerSomeone else did the cutouts and embroidered around them, and I tried it with this bag and the suede like material.
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My daughter's 2nd purse, a slouchy hobo on: July 31, 2005 04:00:12 PM
She made this purse today out of that suede like material I made the wallet from. We didnt have a zipper, but she wanted to make one anyway, so we adjusted the way the pattern was sewn there and she came up with this bag
The heart looks a little blurry but thats just the camera, it was embroidered on by machine, and she borrowed the ribbon trim from another bag on here that she liked.
This is an interior shot. It is a soft flannel.
