1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Timtex vs. Fast2fuse??? on: February 20, 2008 04:32:34 PM
I was wondering if I could get some feedback on your experience with these two interfacings.  Timtex seems to be very hard to find these days not to mention it costs a pretty penny, and I hear Fast2fuse is a good alternative. However, isn't Fast2fuse 1/2 the thickness?  Is there a need to double-up?   Any tips would be appreciated. 
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / How do I quilt a purse? on: February 10, 2008 11:39:26 AM
I'm making my first purse for my mom, using Amy Butler's Chelsea bag pattern.  But I think it would be so much cuter if it was made with a quilt look to it, meaning different squares of pattern patched together and quilted on top.  I've made a couple of quilts before so I know the basics, but how do I incorporate this into a purse pattern? 
3  COOKING / Dessert / Buttercream-piped baby for babyshower on: February 03, 2008 07:25:21 PM
Here are two cakes I did for a babyshower, both babies are piped from buttercream, the Roland Winbeckler way. 
The first cake was covered with pettinice, I think it's called, which tastes SOOO much better than fondant.  The blanket and bottle is also made using that stuff.
The second cake was covered in buttercream icing.
Diane Shavkin used to have step by step instructions on her site, but now I don't see it.  I would be happy scan my copy and post it for anyone that would like it.

4  COOKING / Dessert / Elmo character pan, enhanced! on: February 03, 2008 07:23:28 AM
I used one of those Wilton pans in the Elmo character.  To make him look furry, I used the grass tip for my decorating bag tip.  Then I made the chocolate candy molds that he's holding.  It was kinda time consuming but worth it!!!

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Holly Hobbie room on: March 16, 2007 07:59:37 AM
I decided that I wanted to decorate my daughter's room in Holly Hobbie.  For those of you that were born in the 70's or before, you remember her!  The blanket and wall letters were not made by  me, but I wanted to show you the great craftsmanship!  I sewed the curtains and table.

8  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Yellow Brick Rd. pattern quilt on: February 15, 2007 07:30:11 PM
This is my first "real" quilt.  It's a lap size and make from fat quarters.  I'm pretty proud of it!
