1  Re: more monsters! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Nineightohone on: September 17, 2006 07:52:16 AM

I was just coming on here to post MY newest monster bag made from the tute on here.

wait for it...

wait for it...

Seriously. We picked the same fabric?!?!  I have about 1 1/2 yards left over-got it when Hancock fabric went out of business and I had to buy 2 yards.

He now has big fangs too-I realized when I finished I forgot to put them on so Ihad to stitch 'em in...AND broke two needles...and possibly my sewing machine, trying to sew through that thick fabric.

Love the bags. Smiley

2  Jo-ann's quilt kit in Quilting: Completed Projects by Nineightohone on: June 14, 2006 07:44:56 PM

I get my nails done every 2 weeks and the girl who's always done them got "knocked up" (to use HER term). Anyway, She's due in July and said she was doing her daughter's room in pink, teddybears, and ballet.

I hopped over to jo-ann's looking for inspiration and came across a kit of pre-matched fabrics, similar to this package:

Anyway, I decided this afternoon (my first REAL day off work for the summer...at least until summer school starts Friday) I was going to tackle it. In less than 3 hours from start of cutting fabric to tying of yarn I was done! I only quilted around the fuzzy border and used yarn at the seams of each different fabric.

This is the second quilt I've ever completed, the other is found somewhere in the recesses of this forum.

Thanks for taking a look!

3  Re: Sha Sha Ribbon Dream Purse ~ TUTORIAL as requested in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Nineightohone on: March 05, 2006 08:57:16 PM
I loved this so much I have been wanting make it for almost a week now.

Made mine yesterday and today.

Here we go!

There's the finished product. I used slightly different colors (our JoAnn's sucks and never has everything in stock). Oddly enough, I had some plaid ribbon that matched PERFECTLY from another project (ribbon belts) and so I decided to stitch that to some white grosgrain ribbon and put it white side out.  I used a white daisy flowery type button for the closure.

You see a little change purse in the pic? It was intended to hold credit cards but it's about 1/3 inch too short to fit them in the opening without force. They fit once they're inside but GRRR. I'm going to have to do something else with it I guess  I had to hand stitch in the zipper in because it was too small to fit into the machine. I sandwiched the zipper between the outer and lining fabric and just stiched back and forth. I'm considering using the other flower button to tie on the zipper as a pull.

By the way, here's a pic of the outer and inner fabrics together so you can see the lining.

I didn't do the knit-a-long but I did the atypically Knitt Gryffindor scarf last spring for a friend who works at Barnes and Noble and was working the HP book launch. Smiley

I did 15 stripes instead of 19 because it was just getting too long...and who wants to knit a scarf the first week in July? (spring turned into summer...jeez was it boring to do!)

Here it is:

Okay so imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?

Made mine today. took NINE FREAKING HOURS.

Of course, being online talking to friends didn't help.

the last picture here does nothing but show you the inside colors... and that I also put in plastic pockets. Whee! Smiley

Thanks again for such a great great little bag.

6  Ribbon Belts galore! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Nineightohone on: April 24, 2005 01:56:16 PM
Hey folks! I got tired of seeing ribbon belts for 10-20 bucks that I could make myself for 4-5 bucks.

So here they are!  All ribbons are from JoAnn's or Hancock and the D rings are from both places as well. (Dritz 1", set of 4 per package for 1.50)

Instead of killing myself with a sewing machine, I used that iron on fusible stuff in between and just sewed on the D rings and finished the ends with the machine. The only exception is the flower one. for the end of that one, I melted the end to keep it from fraying with a lighter and cut out a flower from the pink to put on the end.  Each one is two-sided and completely reversible, though the backs of all of them are plain grosgrain.  Some of the patterns (the horizontal striped ones) are grosgrain too, but the flowers and plaid aren't, they're just regular ribbon.

Questions? Comments?

Also, while I was on spring break at a Hallmark they were selling ribbon watches-you pick out the face and then the ribbon bands you want to go with it. The bands were 7 bucks each...I bought two at the time, but instead of blowing wads of cash on more, I made ribbon bands to match my belts...so now I'm all coordinated and junk.

I've had more trouble finding polka dot grosgrain if anyone has any ideas...

Okay time to share a bunny!! Smiley

He's not stuffed yet. I have to go to Hobby Lobby tomorrow to get the white eggs (3 dozen for a buck!...but they're 4 dozen for a buck at Jo-Ann's, although they don't have white)...

The beak for the chicks, atleast on mine, is just orange card stock cut into a triangle and folded, then glued on. Smiley

I'm going to make feet too-foam sheets cut into heart shapes and glued on the eggs. *nodnod*

I was so excited to see this I knit one up RIGHT AWAY. as in 30 minutes from the time I first saw it Smiley Lucky me I keep my googly eyes on hand Smiley

hope the pic works and isn't too huge. The glue's not dry on the beak and eyes yet... Smiley Oh, and he's hungry...anybody got any Cadbury eggs??? Smiley

But I was wondering one thing-in that pattern written up above, can't it just read K 11 rows instead of k 1 row then k 10 rows? That screwed me up and i only knit 10 instead of 11 total... oh and I used 5mm needles. he's sorta fat but I'm sure that'll straighten out when I stuff 'im...

I'm thinking he'll magically appear on DH's cell phone when he awakens in the morn...

9  My first (from a pattern) Quilt! in Quilting: Completed Projects by Nineightohone on: January 22, 2005 09:33:59 PM
Well, I made this last summer but I'm just now realizing I never posted it and wanted some feedback.  I sang at my brother-in-law and sister-in-law's wedding and as a gift they gave me a gift cert to a local quilt shop. I bought the fabric and the book and decided to dive right in.

I worked for 3 days, 13 hours each day...plus a bit before that to do some of the fabric cutting.

What do you think?? It's machine quilted with loops, squiggles, and stars.

Here it is!  Hanging from my  mantle. Smiley

10  Re: Free Purse Patterns On the Web in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by Nineightohone on: January 17, 2005 07:14:56 PM
I made the anykine bag tonight and it worked out really well. I used a stiffener that was about 1/16th of an inch thick so it looks almost padded...and I made it 8x16 instead of 5x10...but it will still only fit a hand inside. Perhaps I shall go bigger next time?

I'm not sure if here's the place to post a photo but I will anyway.



I'm going to make more of these. They're great "little girl purse" gifts!
