1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Material Too thick to sew on: June 14, 2005 07:08:10 PM
I am making a messenger bag and trying to sew in the flap but it is too thick. Is there anyway to raise the foot so I can put the material through and sew it? or am I just stuck.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Robot/Monster Pillow on: March 20, 2005 01:57:20 PM
I woke up super later yesterday, at about 3:00 in the afternoon, and just got down and made a pillow cover. I didn't do any real measurements but somehow it fit my floor pillows PERFECT!! So here is one and I am still working on the other.

The actual case is made of a red bed sheet I have that I never used and the circle & robot/monster are made with old t-shirt material. THe sewing isn't all that great but I'm practicing:P

I did another one:

This is my very first knitted purse...first purse in all time...I'm pretty happy with it and am going to make some more and see if I can sell them on ebay or something.

There wasn't a pattern...just sorta made it up as I went:P...


BTW this is now my favorite forum:)
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Lining Help on: May 22, 2004 05:16:51 PM
So I knitted this bag but am having problems with sewing in the lining...what techniques are there.....this one book I looked at said to slip stitch it in but that looked sorta weird...or I must be doing it wrong. Machine sewing didn't do too well as the knitting it stretchy and so when I sewed it it got all crumply...if that makes any sense...anyone have any tips or way of getting this lining in and having it all neat? Huh
