1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / I made hubby a tool belt!!! on: July 26, 2006 01:06:23 AM
Well I was bored of making things for myself all the time, and to be honest, starting to feel a little selfish. I'm always asking hubby if there's anything he wants me to make but all I get back is "nah, can't think of anything, ta".
So, I had a think... what does he do more than anything else... work on the bloody cars and building stuff is what. And this is what came of that!

I wanted it to be a surprise but I had to find out how many pockets it needed, zips etc. So we have 2 large pockets (1 with zipper), 2 smaller pockets and a tiny pouch with zipper, it's held together with a buckle and of course it sports a loop so he can hang his hammer. Ha! Very nearly put the loop in front but realised that if I want kids I'd better not! And I used my hot glue gun for the very first time putting on the embellishments - yay!
Now he wants me to make 'pockets' for the car seat, what have I unleashed?!?!?!?
Anyways, thanks for looking!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Apron top and skirt - a hellish nightmare! on: June 29, 2006 06:49:28 AM
I did it! It took me two days but I did it! 3 metres of flimsy fabric into half a metre of gathered hell (the bottom tier anyway)! It didnt help that my machine has been playing up something rotten, so after calling it all the nasty names under the sun it finally came through in the end. Mind you, each stitch was sewn so slowly me a bloody hour to do the bottom tier just to do one tier!?! (insert mental image of girl stomping foot and shaking fist!)

And now that I have finished top and skirt I come to this conclusion I look like Im wearing a bloody mermaid costume!

Anyway, heres the final outcome comments would be great!

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Two bags I done did today :) on: June 25, 2006 03:48:30 PM
Since I quit my job two weeks ago I've been on a sewing roll, oh I'm loving it soooooo much! Anyhoo, here's me bags - one's a hobo (of course!) and the other is just a shoulder bag but 'cos it's made from thick suedette (fabric my hubby used to upholster the car seats) it's made my poor sewing machine make a nasty whirring sound BAD SUEDETTE STUFF!... Sorry, went a bit OT... here they are  Lips sealed
