11  HUGE tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by sonnetbird on: April 04, 2008 02:18:12 PM
I made this for the color swap and thought I'd share it here since I hadn't posted a bag in a while

It's about 14x16, and has a plain inside for large items (no pockets). It has the heavy duty Pellon interfacing, so it's pretty stiff. My favorite part is the satin rope trim at the top. It's really just for looks, but I think it adds a lot to the bag. The bottom and handles are cotton velvet, for extra sturdiness.
Well, thanks for looking!

12  A pretty journal, if I may say so myself... in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by sonnetbird on: April 04, 2008 02:02:14 PM
This is my first post over here in Paper Crafts, Hi everyone!

I made this for the Favorite color swap I just finished. My partner has received her package already, so I wanted to share here. I's been a while since I've made any journals, and I forgot how oddly soothing it is. I always relax when I do any kind of hand sewing... I used sketch paper, and left the edges a little rough, I though it was a nice contrast to the fabric, which actually has gold accents, even though you can't see them. The rings around the flowers are gold. That's why the ribbon is gold, in case you were wondering Tongue

So what do y'all think? Should I send my journal making back into dormancy??

So when I logged into my email this morning, I was happy to find one from Lions Brand yarn. The subject line said something about a free afghan pattern so of course I opened it up! You won't believe how shocked I was (in a good way) to see the picture of the pattern:

Anyway, I wish this was available sooner, but I'm just happy I can post it now for those ambitious enough to attack it!

Link to pattern:

If you scroll down past the yarn sample pics, there is a PDF download link and you can save the whole thing on your own PC.

15  3 month quickie bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by sonnetbird on: February 22, 2008 04:38:21 PM
This one was supposed to only take a couple hours. However, it got buried when I rearranged my crafting area, and just saw the light of day today. So after 3 months, this quick bag is finished!!

Just a simple mid-sized duffle, no pockets or extras. I made it from stretch twill and lime green cotton inside, with the intention of it being an extra bag to stuff into a suitcase for travel souvenirs to bring back home, etc. (stuffed with a throw for shape) It's for one of my sisters that travels a lot, and last time she came, her tiny 'extras' bag was bursting at the seams. Maybe with a bigger bag, she'll bring me back more goodies!!!

Thanks for looking!

Just wanted to share this cutie pie that I made for my SIL's bday. She got it today so I can post safely without ruining the surprise Smiley

Her name is LuluBelle, and she loves milk and cookies, especially at bedtime Cheesy

Comments are like candy!!

18  Big mouth cosmetic bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by sonnetbird on: February 05, 2008 04:25:53 PM
I made this for my Aunt for her Valentine's Wedding Anniversary (27 yrs!!). She's been traveling for work, so I wanted to give her something pretty to have on the road.

It's Ruby-red velvet (her July birthstone) with red and gold ribbon, and Asian dragon print inside. I quilted all the layers together in a diamond pattern, and hand-sewed the lining in by the zipper.

Think it'll be durable and last as long as her marriage?  Cheesy

Thanks for looking! Comments?

19  My first dolly, and a new friend in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by sonnetbird on: February 05, 2008 03:14:44 PM
So when I was tiny, my Grandma gave me my first doll, and my only sister (at the time) got one too (there are 4 of us now). There were gingham dolls in green and blue. I got the green one, and this doll has gone with me everywhere. Including the 7 times we've moved in just the first 7 years of marriage Smiley I knew I'd save it forever, even if I never had a little girl. Well, when my daughter was born, she automatically inherited the doll. My sister still has hers, somewhere, but isn't sure which box it's in Cheesy  Anyway, for Christmas I made one for my niece (my sister's dd) so she'll have a cutie to love too. I have one for my DD in the works, but wanted to share this one for now.

Niece's is pink, mine is green. I didn't have an embroidery pen at the time so I used Sharpies. I think it looks ok Cheesy

Did anyone else have these when they were little? Do you still have them? What colors were yours? Share pics of yours if you have some. I love little trips down memory lane  Grin

Alright, so had some time this weekend to work out a few rows for pictures. Hub had other plans for our weekend, so I didn't get as much done as I had hoped. So this is what I did:

I worked each row in a different color so each row could be seen clearly. This is the chain and row 1

Row 2 below

Row 3,

row 4

row 5 will look like row 2, and will be stitched in the 'valleys' of the previous row.

Hope this can clarify what the chart and pattern are showing. Does it help?
