1  Long time, no sew.... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by aislinsmommee on: November 28, 2010 03:50:46 PM
So, it's been forever since I've posted anything on here, but the sewing bug has bitten me and I have decided to pull out my massive stash of fabric and start on Christmas presents.

Please be nice!  Smiley

2  Re: halter dress for my lil one in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by aislinsmommee on: May 20, 2007 08:27:06 AM
Okay guys. Here's the tute for the halter dress....however, I just made a top for the lil one in this one. All you have to do to make it a dress, is just extend the sides of the top to the length you want. Please bear with me, I'v never made a tutorial for anything, so if I miss anything, just let me know. Here goes:

First, I cut out two triangles of fabric. I just kind of guesstimated how big they needed to be, (I HATE measuring) and held them up to the lil one to make sure they would fit. I made one side a little more angled than the other...like this:

Then I added my new best friend, bias tape. Once I finally figured out how to work with that stuff, it's wonderful!!!

I then measured out the bottom of the halter top, (or dress) and cut out two pieces of fabric; one of which I made a casing for the elastic. That's gonna be your back.


After I finished with the elastic, I then sewed the triangles to the rest of the front, by placing them where I wanted them to cross over, and right sides of the fabric together. After that, I flipped it over and topstitiched it, just to give it a little more security.


To finish things up, I sewed the front and back together, and folded the hem up 1/4", and then folded it again, then stitched it. Voila! A handy top that my lil one can wear and play in.

Again, if I've screwed up too badly, or there's anything I didnt clarify, just let me know. Oh! And sorry for the HUGE numbers of pics.

4  Yet Another Skull Purse... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by aislinsmommee on: March 08, 2007 10:03:00 AM
I was at WalMart this morning, skulking about the fabric department, when I realized I have too much fabric already, so on the way over to actually buy some groceries, I happened upon these adorable bandanas in the accessories department. 94 cents and a zipper later, here's my latest purse.

I have no idea why the skulls came out looking green in my photo, but they are white, I promise.

Let me know what you think!

5  Georgia Tech Fans in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by aislinsmommee on: March 07, 2007 10:13:43 AM
I made this bag for a close friend of mine who is a Georgia Tech fan, and has been bugging me to make her one ever since she saw the Georgia Bulldogs bag I made a couple of months ago. It's very simple, no pockets or anything, but I did use the zipper tutorial by dia (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=71168.msg676933#msg676933, which is based on e.r.i.k.a.'s zippered pouchhttps://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=22875.0. (thanks dia....it was so easy to understand, reading your tutorial).
I've been struggling with zippers, and I have to say, you guys rock so much for helping me get over my block. Anyway, on to the pics!!

and the inside

6  Finally done!! My most frustrating bag yet! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by aislinsmommee on: February 04, 2007 05:20:47 PM
I've been working on this bag for the last week, only spending a few minutes at a time on it, because for some reason, my heart wasn't really in it. However, I just finished, and I think it's great. There are no pockets inside, because I'm just a "toss it in and pray you find it later" kind of gal. I've actually conquered my fear of zippers, and I put my signature trim on the top, with a flat bow. So, what do ya think?

Oh yeah...edited to fix the pics, and sorry about the size of them!

7  A few purses/small totes in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by aislinsmommee on: January 09, 2007 08:57:09 AM
Well, I just got a sewing machine about 3 weeks ago, and I've been super busy since then. I have absolutely fallen in love with the Jordy bag,https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=32204.0 and mine are very similar, but I just cant quite get the pattern like hers, sooooo I kinda fudged around until I found something that worked for me.

Anyway, here are the results, sorry if the pics arent too great....





Again, sorry for all the links, but I cant post pics yet (still a newbie), but I hope you all like them...

p.s. please be honest..i promise i can take it
