11  Turkeyzilla Purse Finished! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Tangerine_Dreams on: October 25, 2007 07:01:24 AM
I finally finished the Turkeyzilla Purse by Monster Crochet!

I need to make a few adjustments to the legs, but other than that it's SO cute!

And my favorite turkey dreams of turkey legs!

12  Amy Butler Patchwork Bag/Heather Bailey Fresh Cut in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Tangerine_Dreams on: July 27, 2007 06:42:22 PM
I just finished the Patchwork Bag from Amy Butler's "In Stitches" Book and I love it!  I made the dimensions bigger (6x6x18 instead of 5x5x15) and I used 9 fabrics from Heather Bailey's Fresh Cut line.  I'm totally in love with it! I'm using it as my knitting bag. I'm going to be sewing a small bag (with a magnetic clasp) to keep misc knitting items in it and a coordinating needle roll for my crochet hooks and DPNS.

Side 1:

Side 2:

The inside with my cell phone pocket, on the other side is a magnetic clasp that has a loop attached to the other part of the clasp so I can attach my keys:

13  What to do with this fabric? in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by Tangerine_Dreams on: May 02, 2007 08:49:04 AM
I found the cutest fabric the other day and can't decide what to make with it.  My first inclination was that it would make a really cute "something" for a baby boy, but the more I thought about it, this would be a cute purse liner.

Now I can't figure out if I want to make a fabric purse or a crochet purse and use this to line it....any thoughts....I'm at a creative dead end with this fabric!

14  Unravelling? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by Tangerine_Dreams on: February 07, 2007 11:05:32 AM
I have this poncho that I don't really wear anymore but the material looks like it would make something fun to knit so I want to unravel it.  Thing is that it's sewn together.  Any tips on how to go about trying to unravel it without snipping the wrong section and having to tie ends together?

It looks like it was knit in a rectangle and sewn together.  Here is a picture of the sewn intersection:

I've started with the sleeves and I just finished my cable pattern (I've worked both sleeves up to the end of the chart) and here they are!

It's a horrible picture but you get the point:

This is my prototype. I need to make a few more to iron out the pattern.  I plan to eventually make a baby blanket with it, but here it is in all of it's Bulldog glory:

17  Spooktacular! (pics do work) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Tangerine_Dreams on: October 27, 2006 11:21:12 AM
I've been hoarding the halloween fabric I used for the inside for the last year or so waiting for just the right inspiration to hit me and here it is!

Made using Amy Butler's Nappy Bag pattern scaled down to 60%. The spider is attached w/ a safety pin until I can get to the store and get a better pin to attach it with.

18  Sock Monkey Blanket: Modified for Frogs in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by Tangerine_Dreams on: September 24, 2006 07:00:23 PM
I finally finished this baby blanket yesterday! 

Let me know if you use the froggie pattern and have problems with it, or is hard to understand.  I've never written patterns before.
To make the Frog:
With Green work Rows 1-4 as charted from the Monkey Pattern.

Row 5: ch 1, 2sc in each of first 2sc, 1 sc in each of next 13sc, 2 sc in each of next 3 sc, 1 sc in each of next 12 sc, 2sc in last sc, sl st.

Row 6: ch 1, 2sc in next each of next 2 sc, sk 1, 7dc shell, sk 2, sl st in next 5 sc, sk 2, 7dc shell, sk 1, sc in remaining stitches around. Sl st in 1st sc.  Fasten off.

I'll post a picture that shows the eyes upclose so you can see how I sewed those.

I made it using Caron Simply Soft in White, Lemonade and Limelight.  Sage was used for the dark parts of the eyes and the mouth.

19  Re: In Honor of Today's (hopeful) Shuttle Launch...WIP in Quilting: Completed Projects by Tangerine_Dreams on: September 09, 2006 11:47:43 AM
Thanks everyone for your kind comments!!

Paper piecing is so easy!! Once you get the hang of how to do it, and why you are doing what you are...it's easy peasy!! 

I did a few smaller paper piecing projects before I started this one.   Although, I'm sure you could easily start with this piece, just start with the Earth pieces first, since they are so much more forgiving if you goof....and there were times I changed up some of the colors on the globe just because I was tired of the blue! lol

Here's a few good links to get you started: 

And as a Genetics lover, I made a purse out of this DNA pattern I found online( this was my first paper piecing project I've ever done) and I made quite a few mistakes...it was a great learning process:

20  In Honor of Today's (hopeful) Shuttle Launch...WIP in Quilting: Completed Projects by Tangerine_Dreams on: September 09, 2006 08:02:46 AM
It's a paper piecing pattern from Quilt's With Style Magazine called "Exploring New Territory".  I'm making this wall hanging for my DH, who is an Engineer that works on the External Tank.

I need to dissolve the paper backing, and iron the seams better, border,back,  bind and quilt before it's done!
