11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Reversible Bag on: April 05, 2013 10:34:19 AM
The 2nd bag I made myself this week...on a roll now  Cheesy.  I used this design here http://www.made-by-rae.com/2009/07/lickety-split-bag-pattern-pdf/ and changed up just a couple things.  I wanted it to be really sturdy so I used fusible fleece on the interior fabric.  With the fleece being a bit thicker than just interfacing it made the straps awkward to tie up so I got out the snapper and made a couple sets of snaps so I could adjust the strap to a couple different lengths.  It is totally reversible with no seams showing but I like the brighter fabric on the outside.  It has 2 inside pockets and 2 outside pockets and a couple snaps to close it with. It's a nice size, about 16" wide x 13" tall, without the straps

12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bento box lunch bag on: April 05, 2013 10:26:02 AM
This is one of two bags I made for myself this week.  I usually don't take the time to make myself something very often and this seemed like a good week to do that  Cheesy Thanks for looking
 This little bag is made to carry a bento box lunch or whatever I feel like putting in it.  Grin
Oh yes, I used this awesome tutorial here http://ayumills.blogspot.ca/2010/08/tutorial-lunch-bag.html

13  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / World's Largest Yarn Bomb? on: August 13, 2012 05:19:25 PM
I hope this is the right category for this...this mega yarn bombing is not just crochet and not just knitting so.... We live in a little capital city, North of 60 and a couple young ladies gathered together members of our community to make a giant yarn bomb for our DC-3 weathervane that sits by our Transportation Museum.  I flew in one of these things almost 30 years ago up here...noisy and freeze to death Cheesy Cheesy  I drove up to take pics this morning and found an old pickup truck in the parking lot that had been yarn bombed also  Grin  They could not cover the cockpit area or the tail because of weight issues.  It will stay up for 2 weeks and then will be removed and all the individual pieces (which are blanket size) are being donated to charity.

I was going to post my own pics but then I thought I would put a link to the local website as they have so much more on it to see and little videos of the bombing.  Enjoy  Cheesy  http://yarnbombyukon.wordpress.com/

Hopefully this is posted in the right category...couldn't think where else to put it  Cheesy

Ok, this had to have been the most fun and easiest project I've done in awhile!! I can't believe how quickly this project can be made and how cute AND functional it is!!  (I realllllllllllyyy need some grandkids  Cheesy Cheesy )  The best thing is you can change out the fabric for the seasons and to wash it also.  I bought the pattern online from one of my favorite websites, where I get most of my downloadable patterns.  I was looking at some new dress patterns for little girls when I happened across this and well...had to buy it and try it.  Will have to find a little person now to fit it  Cheesy Cheesy  Here is where I got the pattern from https://youcanmakethis.com/products/featured-products/childs-pvc-pipe-chair-pattern.htm  In the instructions it says it's good for 45 - 50 lbs...aproximately age 1- 3.  It's very sturdy when you pound it together.  I used a rubber mallet and am not going to glue it together because I want the Mom of whomever gets it to be able to take the fabric pieces off and wash it.  I used a decorator canvas type fabric that I had on hand.  Thanks for looking!

16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Blueberry Muffin Apron on: March 22, 2012 02:05:48 PM
I really like this fabric and am going to make a couple other different aprons from it.  I think a ruffle one will be next  Grin
I made it with one pocket and the neckline can be readjusted for different bust sizes. The neck tie just moves back and forth through neck tube for flexibility.

With the waist ties, tied in the front

17  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Toddler Summer Outfit on: February 29, 2012 09:47:05 AM
I've had this ladybug fabric for awhile and I found the perfect use for it today!  A little top and a pair of matching bloomers.  The green fabric colour is actually a lot brighter than shows in the photo  Grin It also looks like the top is shirred but it's not.

18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Ez Summer Top/Dress on: February 24, 2012 01:09:18 PM
I decided to make something for myself today...incredibly fast and easy to work up!!  I also did this kids aviator style, fleece lined hat, just to try out the pattern.  My "model" seems to like it ok as he lays in his favorite spot in the window  Cheesy Cheesy

19  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bali Pops Purselet on: February 21, 2012 12:42:29 PM
I needed a break from the usual sewing today and have been ogling Shocked a roll of bali pops I've had for awhile.  I didn't have a plan in mind when I started, so I just went ahead and sewed a bunch of the strips to a black heavy twill backing.  I then used a decorative stitch to add some texture.  It was now about the size of a placemat and so I stared at it for awhile...  Cheesy Cheesy  I decided to trim the one end and make a little bag out of it.  I really like the colours and added some black binding and an orange button for the closure.  Added the other buttons for something to do  Roll Eyes   Cheesy Cheesy and the wrist strap.  Completed size is 10" x 6". Have no idea what to do with it now  Grin
