1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Canvas Re-usable Grocery Bag on: March 04, 2008 04:52:51 AM
I love this bag! It's just a basic tote but I appliqued and embroidered and lined it.
It's quite large, can carry 2 2ltr bottles easily and it's so comfortable to hold  Grin

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tree/Earth messenger bag on: March 04, 2008 04:04:06 AM
I designed and made this in about 7 hours yesterday. Quite happy with it but remind me to not use wadding again!
The bag was going to be really flimsy and I only had thin interfacing so I used wadding on two panels to stiffen it up a bit. It worked but was a pain in the arse to use!
For the tree/earth design - I embroidered the trunk & roots, used fabric paint for the leaves and earth. The leafy bit is textured and there are different colours but you can't see them in the pic. I'm debating whether or not to put some text on either side of the trunk, if I do the text will be EARTH FIRST. What do you think?

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How do I turn.................. on: June 03, 2007 12:09:25 AM
Hello everybody   Cheesy

I have a few pants patterns which are from the the 70's/80's. As you can imagine, the waist is high rise.
How do I turn them into hipsters? I have a sewing encyclopedia but of all the alterations there is no help on how to do this!
I made a great pair of pants yesterday except for the bellybutton kissing waistband!
Actually, does anyone know of any free pants tutorials on the web? Ideally drawstring pants!

Thanks anyway guys   Grin
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / "Put Your Life In Me" Bag/ or just a plain grocery bag! on: May 09, 2007 01:16:22 AM
Hello  Grin

I decided to make a bag I could put my whole life in (if needs be!) so I made it  Cheesy

The bag itself is just an ordinary tote which was easy to make and the wording and pic is embroidered on.
Anyway, here it is...

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Help! Ideas needed please! on: April 11, 2007 03:02:41 AM

I'm just about to embark on a story quilt and I need something to commerate death. Sounds morbid I know but it's part of the story!
I don't want anything religious like crosses or angels, I was thinking of a gravestone but that might not look right on this particular quilt.

I don't know if this will help but the ones who died are 2 of my cats  Cry

I hope someone has an idea, 'cos I sure don't!

Thank you!
