1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / 3 of my LO's: spring, my dog, and fishing (5 images) on: January 15, 2007 03:03:14 PM
I did a two page 12x12 layout of pics I took last spring of my farm.

The left page: ( I have no idea why the main photo looks crooked...its not in person?!)

Right page

Together: (this is blurry, but you get the idea)

My boyfriend Kevin at Balsam Lake, Ontario, last June. (for details for what I did to the page see my blog in my signature)

My dog, Troy. I did this layout late last summer.

Any comments or suggestions?
2  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / New Look 6497 is a great pattern! on: October 16, 2006 05:14:23 AM

I love this pattern. I made it for the second time this weekend. (for pics of my top see my blog http://thescrappysewist.blogspot.com/) The original ties in the back (I made it with ties in the back in the summer in a black jersey), but for the second time around I altered it so that the back doesn't tie, its just straight. This was the first time I had every altered a pattern beyond just lengthening it.  For this time around I used a plum jersey knit.

I highly reccomend this pattern to beginners as well, especially those on a budget as it doesnt require a lot of fabric. I used  I think a little over a meter. The directions are also clear and concise with good illustrations.

I really like the other views in the patttern too. And will make them come spring.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Hot Pink and Black plaid mini skirt on: September 20, 2006 08:05:44 PM
I just completed this mini skirt. I really like it. I used Burda 8175, which is a super easy pattern. The fabric is hot pink and black with a silver stripe running throughout the plaid design. I love, love this fabric. I got it at Fabricland this past spring when the winter fabrics were on sale. I'm anxioulsly awaiting their 3 for 1 meter sale in November to get more plaids. Oh and thats my min-pin's Troy's butt in the picture.

here is a close up

Let me know what you think!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Adding liner to a knit handbag? on: January 30, 2006 06:16:04 PM
My sister wants me to put a liner in a  bag she just knitted. As of right now the bag is just a rectangle shape. I know how to make a liner and have made purses before, but I dont know how to attach it to a knitted bag. Can I machine stitch the liner to the wool? or does it have to be by hand?

6  CANADA / Ontario / Craft shows in the Barrie, Midland, Orillia area or the Niagara region? on: December 16, 2005 12:18:54 PM
Are there any smallish craft shows in these areas? My sister and I are looking to sell sewn and knitted handbags and accessories. We're just starting out so we dont have alot of money to spend on vendors fee, but we're willing consider higher fee's if the shows are really good and get lots of traffic.

Thanks for your help!  Smiley
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Dog coat - now with mini tutorial-scroll down on: December 06, 2005 08:41:05 AM
This is a coat that I made for my adorable miniature pinscher, Troy. I've made another one since. For the second one I lengthened the back by an inch or two and made it more rounded.

The pic is of the first one I made.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Simplicity purse 4625 on: December 06, 2005 07:13:41 AM

This is a purse that I made in the early fall. It was the first handbag I had made and the first thing I had sewn in about 4 years. The fabric is a thick cotton bright orange paisley print. It was easy to make with good instructions so its a good begginner handbag.

9  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Modern sewing patterns? on: December 05, 2005 10:55:54 AM
Has anyone tried the m-sewing.com patterns? I just came across this site the other day through 'Pattern Review.' They have lots of really cool patterns available at reasonable prices. You can also get a free pattern from them too (there is info about this on the forum page-i think). I havent ordered my pattern yet as I cant decide which one I want. The instructions are kinda sparse though.  Undecided

I hope I put this in the right forum. Should it have went in the discussion one? TIA
