1  Bookbag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by sweet_apple_pie on: September 14, 2008 05:05:41 PM
made my daughter a bookbag, both she and I love it. it has magnetic closures because i wanted it to be easy for her to open & close it ( she's 5 ) and it's elastic in the front so it keepks the stuff from falling out. the front has a kangaroo pockets for tissues and such. and best off all, the shoulder straps are soft cotton and padded, since the biggest complaint of store-bought bookbags is how much they hurt her shoulders.

i didn't use a pattern, just went along with it after a rough sketch of main ideas.
 Embarrassed the bow is still pinned on, i'll sew it on eventually.

2  Congrats RN cake in Dessert by sweet_apple_pie on: August 13, 2008 03:52:15 PM
I threw a BBQ to celebrate my successful completion of my licensing exam ( which makes me a registered nurse ), and since i couldn't bake my own cake since my over is vintage and broken, i just had to buy a cake, but i'd be darned if i wasn;t going to decorate it with a stethoscope. i really wanted to make the "R" letter wear a nurse cap, but i didn't get any red icing,

it's nothing special, and it didn't even taste great, but it's my first attempt at " decorating " a cake.

4  Boston Cream cupcake in Dessert by sweet_apple_pie on: April 10, 2008 01:34:51 PM
this is a boston cream ( creme? ) cupcake from some cupcake book by dede something or the other.

it' made up of :

Dunkan heinz's (sp? ) Super Moist Butter Recipe CAKE MIX

I made the same exact recipe in a mini-cupcake form for my birthday last fall and it tasted MUCH BETTER then a full sized cupcake.

5  Trifecta handbag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by sweet_apple_pie on: February 01, 2008 06:54:31 PM
i freaking love this purse, i have been waiting for this pattern for months. (pattern: http://www.studiokatdesigns.com/trifecta.htm )

i couldn't be bothered with pockets and interfacing, so i skipped all of that, maybe on the next bag i'll follow directions .... not very likely  Grin

ETA: this bag is a MONSTER! it can be stuffed without seeing an end in sight. I was able to fit inside: notebook, umbrella, giant wallet, Treo smart phone, pens, lipstick, gum, keys, hat, gloves. AND IT STILL HAD ROOM! but this bag is actually quiet small, about the size of a notebook.

6  the knitted beaded monster in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by sweet_apple_pie on: January 27, 2008 06:54:01 AM
this bag just completely consumed my life for the past week, it was extremely easy, but the knitting took ages. I even spent the last day of knitting knitting straight through the night  Shocked

i'm quiet happy with it as it turned out exactly as i envisioned it- small yet impressively roomy. it also had 5 interior pockets so that all of  my small items such as keys and lipstick and phone will not end up on the bottom. there's nothing i hate more then digging through the whole bag just to find the item you need right away, like your keys when you're carrying loads of bags, your phone when you hear it ringing and your lipstick when your lips are dry as the des(s)ert

it's still a work in progress, as i am not completely happy with the lace tie, but i have nursing school exams to worry about and this bag took up way too much as it already.

8  Need an honest opinion~ UPDATED with suggestions in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by sweet_apple_pie on: January 05, 2008 02:06:21 PM
i need an honest opinion from you cool chicas. i know how I feel about this jacket, but i need opinions from the world outside my head. hubby is not feeling the sleeves, but it's the part i love the most. especially because it looks great with tall gloves.

but i wanted to hear other's opinions, am i really out of touch?

i looks like those collars that are suppose to button up on the side seam, but since it's attached, she moved the buttons more towards the front.
