1  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / 2 Dog Collars on: September 06, 2007 10:17:31 AM
I got a new baby dog for 4th of July, and at 4 months hes 49 pounds, and I have already had to buy him 2 collars and 2 harnesses because he grows out of them so fast, so I got smart and decided to make them instead. I also made one for his big Sissy ( shes 11 ) because she has had so much patience with his exhuberance and sharp little puppy teeth!

I swear to god Mom I didn't eat your down comforter, it just exploded it happens! Maybe the feathers wanted to be free.

Enough with the ding dang camera, you wanna lose a toe, do ya do ya?

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pouch From Vintage Braid on: June 12, 2007 06:12:45 PM
I have yards of this vintage red and green braid/ribbon, I zig zagged them together side by side to make a fabric, then I lined it with a cute red and white gingham. I have a ton of these off white zips with the inverted cone pulls as well.

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Overnight Tote on: June 06, 2007 08:25:26 AM
This is the prototype for a pattern I've drafted in two sizes, this is the smaller size, I call it the overnighter ( yeah I am so original ). There are a total  of four pieces to this tote, the body and the inner and outer pockets. This tote only takes a yard of outer fabric and liner fabric its also padded with batting. I can make it in an hour and a half from start to finish. This size will hold enough for 2 outfits, and night clothes. It has 2 outer and one inner zipped pocket.

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Vintage Craft Projects / Make It With Sheets on: May 15, 2007 12:17:00 PM
I am always on the look out for things to make with sheets, and I thought my fellow craftsters might be too. Heres a leaflet I have had for ages and ages, I posted my two favorite things to make with sheets. I love to make kids kimonos out of their favorite character sheets. My son has long out grown his star wars kimono so if anyone has a twind sized 80s star wars sheet I want it!!!! The booklet also shows you how to make sleeping bags, duvet, covers, curtains and dustruffles, I just didnt feel like scanning 8 pages...

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Potholders From Jeans and a T-shirt Tutorial "Pic Heavy" on: April 24, 2007 03:28:13 PM
rsu= right side up
rsd= right side down
rso= right side out
rst= right sides together

I have store bought display potholders and towels that I never use, because I like them to be pretty. I keep utility potholders in a drawer and use those because once they get yucky I just toss them.
1 large t-shirt ( old towels and flannel shirts work great too ) you can get 2 potholders out of a large sized tee.
1 pair of jeans or a denim shirt or cords
make a template 9x9 out of an old cereal box, use a thread spool to round the corners of the square.
1. Cut 4 pieces of denim and about 10 inches of a flatfelled seam, this will be the outside and the hanging loop of the potholder. Cute 8 squares out of the t-shirt
2. Put one piece of denim rsd and layer with 4 pieces of the t-shirt fabric ( if the denims super thick 3 pieces of tees enough ). Baste the tee fabric to the denim with a 1/4 seam. Trim the excess tee being careful not to cut the denim.
3. Take a 5 inch piece of the trimmed flatfelled seam make a loop and baste it to the corner of the right side of the denim and tee sandwich.
4. Take the leftover piece of denim and place it rst with the denim and loop piece. Pin all around and be sure to leave and opening.
5. Stitch with a 3/8 seam turn rso use a chopstick to poke out the corners and press well tucking in the opening.
6. Topstitch 1/4 inch from the edge and then from corner to corner.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Fitz Missy Pattern on: April 23, 2007 12:41:55 PM
My friend asked me to make her some cute summer stuff using the Missy pattern from Fitz. ( it prints out weird ) Before I cut into my good knits I decided to make a test run on some striped knit I had. All I can think of when I look at this outfit, is throwing a flag and screaming offsides. My friend actually loves it! I wish the stripes ran horizontal on it, and I still have 4 yards of it to go for test garments. The next run on this will include a drawstring in the waist of the shorts and one in the hem of the top.
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Sube and Patchwork on: April 21, 2007 04:40:46 PM
 All the fabrics buttons and trims in these bags are vintage. The floral print is a cotton, the brown is a raw silk, and the celery green is a loosley woven cotton, harvested from some napkins ( 3 were embroidered and 3 weren't ). The patchwork bag has both interfacing and batting for structure.
 The traingle bag is made from this tutorial, I do recommend if using quilters cotton to use interfacing.
my daughter hates the fringe!
