1  Re: My denim version of the Little Artist Case in Completed Projects by karen4432002 on: May 21, 2007 03:58:02 PM
Thanks everyone, I'm looking forward to seeing the denim change in colour as it wears. The kids loved them so much they spent all last night drawing and writing. These things are sooo addictive and are so much easier to do the second time around. The fact I used quilting fabric probably had a lot to do with it too. This one took me less than an hour from start to finish.

front - Why do straight sides always look curved in pics? I did try padding the heart with a little filler but it just wouldn't sit right so I pulled it out.


shewolf that's what I was thinking. I was only going to make them for my younger 2 as the older 2 thought they were too childish but now they've seen them they want one too, so I will quickly make theirs and then I'm going to attempt one for myself so it holds an A4 pad, will post the dimensions if it works out OK.

Or I might try a smaller version for a shopping list pad and pencil. mmm did I say these are addictive...

2  My denim version of the Little Artist Case - more pics added in Completed Projects by karen4432002 on: May 20, 2007 09:57:18 PM
Like the title says, I'm not really sure where else to put this one. Following the tute from http://craftapple.wordpress.com/2006/12/30/little-artist-drawing-case-tutorial/ I am going to make some for each of my kids. Had heaps of denim lying around and since Ds 8 loves denim he is first. Should have tried one of the others first cause it has lots of layers and sewing through that many layers of denim without an industrial machine is a NIGHTMARE. I used both sides of the denim to create contrast and used his favourite colours for the stitching.  After much swearing and 5 broken Denim needles this was the result. The sides are actually straight, not sure why they curve in the pics.

The front..

and the inside...

So glad the others want lighter cotton. Thanks for looking

3  TWINS ROCK Hooded Sweatshirt in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by karen4432002 on: April 30, 2007 05:27:57 PM
My first hooded sweat. Was so much easier than I thought it was going to be. The front is machine embroidered and the stripes were done by hand with bias tape. I lined the hood with red polar as I didn't like the seam showing and should make it warmer.

just plain on the back.

4  Basketball bag for my kids in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by karen4432002 on: January 29, 2007 08:13:56 PM
After repeated nagging from my youngest 2, I gave in today and made them both bags for their basketballs. They have been playing for nearly 2 years and were given club balls as an end of season pressie so want to look after them.

I used a basic drawstring style bag and just shaped the bottom using a dinner plate. I machine embroidered the designs - 36ers are our NBL team here in Adelaide.
