1  ACU Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by miezimau on: February 10, 2010 05:55:48 AM
To honor my DH that is serving in Afghanistan, I decided to make a purse out of a pair of his ACU's (Army uniform)
I used a Simplicity Pattern (2617) and left some steps out.
I made Pattern A
I did not quilt the top of the purse
I left out the Zipper on the inside Pocket and I left off the Magnetic Closure.
I made the front from the same ACU fabric ( the pattern calls for 2 different Fabrics)
I also left out the Padding in the Purse itself (I only put the Interfacing), but I did put the patting in the Strap.

I love my new Purse and I will still add some Velcro Patches to the front Pockets that I will embroider myself.
Pattern Purse made from Pattern A (the one that is shown hanging over the chair in the top left)

Front waiting for me to sew on the velcro parts

Inside Pocket and Lining (Pink Valentine fabric)

Finished Purse

5  Shade Panels for Gazebo in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by miezimau on: July 20, 2009 07:11:35 AM
We bought a Gazebo and needed to get some shade panels for it. Unfortunatley the ones they make for the Gazebo were sold out and only went half way down. I decided for the price it would be cheaper to sew my own and went ahead and did that. Used Canvas and a Printed Fabric. The Gazebo is 10x10 feet and the fabric was only 60 inches, that is why decided to add a printed fabric bottom to it. Sewn and hemmed, added heavy duty gromets to the tops and 3 on each side to attach to the sides. Here are a before with the mosquito netting and then after with the shade panels. I made it where I can roll them up if I decide to.
Let me know what you think

10  Yummy Artisian Bread in Recipes and Cooking Tips by miezimau on: May 23, 2009 05:30:19 AM
ok, so I wanted to get into Breadmaking, and I googled Artisian Breads.
I found a very easy recipe, that was posted on Instructables ( http://www.instructables.com/id/Artisan_Bread_in_Five_Minutes_a_Day/) very simple ingredients.

I went to the website for the book ( http://www.artisanbreadinfive.com/ ) and checked out different baking methods. Since I found a Rmertopf (german claybaker) at the Thriftstore and they have some instructions on how to bake in that to get the perfect crust.
So here is my end result looks and taste great as you can see my son chowing down. The bread was gone within 10 minutes after everyone trying it. LOL

very easy for someone like me that never baked with a yeast dough before.
