1  Re: TUTORIAL: Singlet Style Shopping Bag (like the plastic shopping bag) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by peariso on: June 26, 2007 05:08:53 PM

This is proof that you can fit a 20 lb bag of dog food + treats in this bag.

I didn't line it as I found it a little bulky but the cotton rip-stop works great.  I french seamed the whole thing for added strength. 

Thank you so much for the tute.

So to motivate me to go to the gym on a regular basis I figured that I needed a brand new gym bag that I would feel proud to tote into the muscle madness with me.  This lovely is what I came up with.

So  I jumped on the bandwagon!  I had been itching to try this one and I finally got around to it. 

I totally didn't make it as big as the pattern called for.  I basically just followed the pattern until I liked the half way point and then did the other side.  Oh and like many I only CO 100 stitches.  I could have gone smaller that way too. 

I love it though!

parallax -  my waist band ends up being around 5"  and I don't fold it over but i do finish the edge on the top.  yes I'm only sewing the waist band to the back edge.  The straps are sewn to the waist band.

This yarn (Patons Classic Merino) was dyed with 2 packets of Orange and 2 Packets of Blue Raspberry lemonaide.  Half the Skein was blue and the other half was orange to knit up in every row stripes. 

Did I mention that this is my first knit sock EVER!  I'm super proud of it.  I just need to make another one....

Butter tarts are basically a really sweet sticky custard in tart form.  Sometimes people put rasins/currents in them but I like mine plain.

They are very similar to a pecan pie/tart.

1 1/2  cups all-purpose flour 
1/2  teaspoon sugar 
1/4  teaspoon salt 
4 1/2  tablespoons cold butter, cut into bits 
2  tablespoons cold vegetable shortening 
1  large egg, beaten lightly 
1  teaspoon vanilla 
1/4  cup butter, melted and cooled 
1  cup firmly packed brown sugar 
1  tablespoon distilled white vinegar 
1/4  cup raisins (optional) 

 Butter Tarts Recipes
< 60 mins Tarts
Canadian Tarts
Make the shells: In a processor, blend the flour, sugar, salt, butter and shortening until mixture resembles meal; transfer to a bowl and add 2-3 tblsps of ice water, or enough to form dough; knead dough briefly on a floured surface and chill it, wrapped plastic wrap, for 1 hour; roll out dough 3/8 inch thick on a floured surface, cut into rounds with a 4 1/2 inch cutter, and fit the rounds into 1/3 cup muffin tins.

Make the filling: In a bowl beat the egg, vanilla and butter until well-combined and stir in brown sugar and vinegar; spoon filling into shells and bake in a preheated 400F (205C) oven for 15 minutes; let cool 5 minutes; carefully remove from tins and let cool completely.(filling will be thin and runny while hot but will firm up as it cools).
Note: Many like raisins in their butter tarts (I don't); if you are one of them, add 1/4 cup raisins to the filling mixture.

Here is my latest dyeing experience! 

2 Tropical punch for the red, 2 Strawberry Kiwi for the pink, and 2 orange with a little left over Strawberry colour for the orange.  Dyed on Patons 100% Merino. 

It is self striping with the orange and red making up the main stripe.
