1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / inspiration struck...and robbed me of my entire sunday! on: June 02, 2008 08:02:54 AM
i was browsing craftster Saturday and was inspired by the mini bowling bag made by qazicat https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=64535.0
and by the amy butler sophia carry-all http://www.amybutlerdesign.com/products/patterns_display.php?id=35

so i got my fabric on Saturday and spent my entire day sunday drafting a pattern and making the bag.

I'm actually surprised that after staring at it for 12 hours, i actually still like it!

it is 11 inches at its widest point, 7 inches tall and 4 inches deep.

open and empty

my first attempt at a slash style pocket

filled up

this was also my first time using and making my own piping...  i love the way it looks and i learnd a lot, but im not sure how much more i will use it.

thanks for looking!

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / HELP! I dropped a stitch and i can't find it! on: November 01, 2007 09:03:58 PM
Let me start off by saying that I am super new to knitting and this is my first post on the knitting boards. (this is also my first object i actually plan to finish)  a cry for help, how sad!    I'm sure it would be a lot easier to find a dropped stitch in person but i thought someone with more experience would be able to see it in a photo.

 I'm pretty sure it was on the row just below my needles because i am an obsessive counter, and i had just counted a few stiches back.   I have no idea what i am looking for and my knitting for dummies book isn't helping me.  I'm fairly, kind of, maybe certian that is is right around my needles somewhere so that is where i took the picture.  if you need a better picture let me know!  I appreciate any help!

10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Quentin Tarantino Themed Costume Party In July!!! on: May 18, 2006 08:28:30 PM
So i was talking with my sister and we were talking about how much haloween rules, and how much it sucks that it only comes once a year. So she says to me " Angel, you should MAKE it come more then once a year."  Sooo...i plan on making it an annual haloween in July thing with a new theme every year.  quentin tarantino was the first suggestion and i wanna stick with it.  I have only just begun thinking of ideas ...and the only one i have come up with is to play lots of music from pulp fiction cause that movie has an awesome soundtrack.  I also want to be able to give the guys ideas as what to dress up as so they don't all dress up as guys from Reservoir Dogs.  Any help will be much appreciated!!!
