SewIn2Disney, is your trim around the center topstitched? Before I looked at the instructions that little bit of stitching kind of gave the impression that the whole thing was sewn, which I like. Great job both of you ... Those look like they require a ton of patience.

No, the pattern pieces are included in the book. For some of the other patterns you have to measure parts yourself, but they're just squares and rectangles, so it's not terribly difficult.

I love Amy Butler's fabrics, but I have never actually bought any or sewed with them. That's a great gift!

I made these for my niece for Chanukah. She loves playing in the kitchen and dressing up.

No close-ups, because I was messy with the stitching, truth be told! (I don't think she'll mind!) But the outline of the top is piped, and the middle sash is made of extra-wide bias tape with interfacing on the back to stiffen it up, and that's piped as well. The neck is adjustable. Quite by accident, the body is too ... the measurements I was given produced an absurdly long apron, so I picked up the bottom and basted it in place. So if the kid is really that tall, I can let it down. Or when she's older if she's not sick of cooking. Wink

Close-up of the hat:

Yep, her name's Leah! The hat was made using these instructions, which were surprisingly good! I made the circle a little smaller since she's little. It's adjustable with velcro in the back.

Fun! I'm excited, because we were having a tough time finding her a good gift until her mom suggested this, and it came out well! Plus, I've been waiting to put this fabric to good use, because I think it's super cute.

I love how these came out ... They were easy and quick, especially the second one! They're the first thing I made from the book.
They're for my Mom for Christmas, because she always seems to be working, and it makes her grumpy.  Tongue
I still need to add ribbon, but besides that, everything else was from my stash. Nice!

They're matching:

The whole things:
17  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Show off your gift wrapping! on: December 02, 2007 09:28:15 AM
Wrapping gifts might be my favorite part of the Holidays.
Here's my first two gifts this year:

I used a bag from a news shop in DC, and added some letters spelling Merry Christmas on the bottom where the guy's newspapers are. And of course some sequins for sparkle. The gift is books, so I like the newstand theme. I might add some glitter to the dude's cigar, just for the heck of it.

I made a gift bag out of another paper bag from a shop, using grommets and some hem tape for the handle. I added the recipient's initials on mirrored discs in the corner.

I think the bag still needs a little something. I might add a hangtag from the handle with a snowflake or something ... We'll see!

(edited to make sense in this thread)

I really like the style of the bag, could you possible post a tut for how you made it?

i pretty much assembled it piece-by-piece, using a lot of notes to keep my measurements straight.

for the main body i cut one long piece, then sewed the end to make a tube. then i sewed the bottom onto that. i did this for the lining and outside, then made a flap which i stuck in at the end. the hardest part of making a lined bag, for me, is figuring out which sides go together while sewing together the inside and outside, because you do it all inside-out, and i get so turned around.

in appearance, it's basically a jordy bag, modified to add a flap, and that's a far better tutorial!

your sewing is really impressive for only three weeks! the bag looks great, and so does the other stuff. what a great gift!

yeah, i have no idea what it is with those cups, but as soon as they're set loose in your bag, they seem to magically produce more coffee. i'm definitely going to add a little holder.

i think i might start collecting landscape fabric for a quilt! there's something about it that i really, really like ... even the cheesy stuff ... and especially when there are animals!

anyway, thanks for the compliments!
