1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Fun and bright new purse :) on: October 02, 2008 02:28:20 PM
This was super simple, quick and fun. I traced one of my fav purses and took about 2 and 1/2 inches off that to size it down. It's a good size fits my wallet, makeup bag and a knitting project or book. I found this cute rainbow heart fabric at Joann's in the red tag section.The lining and handle are just red cotton.
Ok pics.

The whole purse

The lining and a closeup for true color

Thanks for looking!!
2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Aqua and Red Quilt on: September 30, 2008 04:18:39 PM
I finished this back in June. It is SO FAR from perfect for so many reasons but it was a great practice piece and  I absolutely love it! I will definitely keep trying my hand at quilting after this. I used White Cotton and there is red and aqua gingham and the border is aqua cotton and the aqua flower print fabric is unknown origin but very sheer and pretty and super soft. It fits a full sized bed with no room to spare for an idea at how big it is.
This quilt has proved to be exactly what I wanted it to be which is the PERFECT summer quilt light! Cozy but not over bear-ingly warm. Ok onto pics.

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Outgoing mail/card holder (3 PICS) on: December 18, 2007 06:48:23 PM
I made this as a Christmas present for my g-pa Cheesy Because he uses a envelope to put his outgoing mail and grocery store cards in currently. The fabric I used I bought back home in Hawaii, it was originally intended for curtains I was going to make him. But since I ended up buying him curtains this summer I needed to find something else to make him.
On to pics Smiley

And a couple close ups on the pockets

Thanks for looking!

I knit this up in about a half a day with plain old red heart yarn.

It's about 4 rows of moss stitch on size 8 straights then lace rib on size 11 straights to achieve the big holes I wanted!
