1  from ratty jeans to apron strings in CHALLENGE 7 ENTRIES by aubrigail on: November 06, 2005 09:23:46 AM
Just when I thought these jeans were destined for the thrift store...

I came across this challenge and decided that a jean apron/tool belt would be just what I needed!

So instead of going to the thrift store, this pair of jeans went into my living room, where with a pair of scissors some seam tape, a needle and thread (gosh, demin is tough to hand sew) and some red cherry print fabric, I made the jean apron that you see here!

I left the waist belt on the jeans along with the belt loops, and then the cherry fabric ties in the back as well.  I also cut the legs straight across and had to cut and tack down the first inch and a half of the butt seam to get the front of the apron to lie flat

I came up with the apron idea on my own, but I did a little bit of searching after I was finished, and discovered that at least one person on craftster and the people at Readymade magazine had the same idea...so I guess it's a not-so-original original idea...but you know what they say about great minds Wink

Thanks for looking!

2  Re: Jordy Bag - Square Bottomed Lined Bag Tutorial in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by aubrigail on: April 02, 2005 04:04:13 PM
Just finished my very first purse =)

First I made the bag, decided it wasn't structured enough so I added the "Kate Spade"-esque stitching around the edges and then decided it needed a way to close and added the ribbon last (after a quick trip to the craft store that was about to close-eek!)

Thanks for the awesome tutorial and all the ideas you guys posted! Couldn't have done it without you!!


Edit:  I also wanted the inside of my strap to match the lining so I cut two 17 x 3 1/4 pieces, one of pineapple and one of red, sewed them on both sides with right sides together, turned it right side out after sewing down both sides, ironed it, and then sewed alone the edges like it suggests in the tutorial (just without any of the folding)

I just finished this scarf earlier tonight.  It's the Irish Hiking Scarf Pattern from Hello Yarn (http://www.helloyarn.com/irishhikingscarfpf.htm) with Red Heart Supersaver yarn, size 10 needles (instead of 8s) and about 10 inches longer than the pattern calls for...made it for my boyfriend but am considering keeping it for myself Wink
