This is my favorite hat that I've ever made. I love it!

(Excuse the dirty mirror and weird expression)

Jiffy Thick-n-Quick in navy, N hook. Took about 1.5 hours.

Thanks for the pattern!

Thanks again everyone for the awesome comments!

I've entered this bag into the Amy Butler Sew Inspiring Contest. If your interested in entering, here is the link http://blog.craftzine.com/archive/2007/12/amy_butler_contest.html?CMP=OTC-5JF307375954

Becca77 - Thanks for the link to trendyfabrics.com. Their prices on Amy Butler fabric are awesome! I just bought lightweight canvas from them today...great prices!

Here is a pic of the ring that my fiance had for me when he came home from New Zealand...

Now on to wedding planning...ek! I'm scared...

13  Denim Purse with Ties in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by HHjamie on: December 28, 2007 10:37:11 AM
My fiance and I are staying with friends in San Jose over New Years, so I whipped up this purse yesterday afternoon for our hostess. I hope she likes it!

(I really need to reupholster my dining room chairs...I hate that fabric!)

The denim fabric is what was left over when I hemmed our new bedroom curtains that I found at the thrift store. The denim is lined with fleece interfacing for more stability and has three pleats on each side.

Close up of the tie (modeled by my pink tinsel Christmas tree).

Inside lining with two pockets. I kinda wish I had chosen a different color for the lining. I like how the denim and red look, but the person I made it for is a lot more girlie than me. I hope she likes it!

Comment/criticism welcome!  Smiley

14  First Completed Bag...sweet! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by HHjamie on: December 21, 2007 02:41:54 PM
I made this bag (my first) last week. I wanted to try my hand at making a bag before I jumped into making AB's Sophia. It's loosely based off of mgenevieve's tutorial found here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=49030.0

As modeled by my dining room chairs...

And modeled by my floor...

It's fully lined in light purple. I had intended to make it for my sister for her birthday in February, but I love it too much to let it go! I'm planning on making another for her in the same fabric (I bought too much again!)

Thanks for lookin'!

15  Re: Show off your TREE, Mantle, Or other HOLIDAY decor! in Winter Holidays by HHjamie on: December 21, 2007 02:27:39 PM
I know there was talk about a pink tinsel tree earlier on this thread, so I thought I'd show off mine. Smiley

Yes, that is a disco ball on the top of the tree.

My bf actually chose this tree. We live in a small apartment and decided to go fake this year when he found this tree in his favorite color, pink (he's a web designer/developer and loves color).

The only other Christmas decoration in our little apartment is garland and Christmas cards over the sliding glass door.

Happy Holidays everyone!

16  Amy Butler's Sophia...whew! (pic heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by HHjamie on: December 21, 2007 01:53:14 PM
I've only been sewing for about 6 months, but when my bf said he was leaving for 12 days to go cycling in New Zealand, I thought I'd have time to give this pattern a try!
(UPDATE: He came back from New Zealand with an engagement ring! Grin)

Here she is! (The fabric is also Amy Butler from fabric.com)

It took me about 4 days to complete (1 day cutting, 3 sewing). I have to say that by the 4th day, I was pretty much over it. The directions were pretty easy to follow. I didn't have a zipper foot, so I ended up using a regular foot which worked out fine. I had never installed a zipper or made cording, but the directions made it do-able for a n00b like me.

My only complaint about this pattern was that there were a million pieces to cut. I ended up labeling everything with stickie notes to keep everything straight.

This is only the second bag I've ever made, so I'm pretty happy with it! It holds everything I need. And when I went to Old Navy this morning, I bought shoes that match it perfectly http://www.oldnavy.com/browse/product.do?cid=37558&pid=522925&scid=522925062

17  Hats! (with links to tuts) in Crochet: Completed Projects by HHjamie on: October 19, 2007 04:09:48 PM
So lately, I've been into making hats...I've already finished three this week!

This first one is my favorite, but I'm planning on giving it to my sister for Christmas. Its made with Lion Brand Wool-Ease.

Its based on the pattern found here...http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=21665

I also used this pattern to make this hat from good old sugar and cream yarn.

The brim on this one is driving me nuts. I didn't follow the pattern for the brim, but winged it myself...I could have done a better job, but I still like the hat.

This last one is based off the Hep Hat pattern found here...http://redcrochet.wordpress.com/patterns/hep-hat/

I've been wearing this one a lot. Its made out of unknown wool yarn from the bargin bin.

Comments? Criticism? Thanks for looking!

18  Monogrammed Pillows! (with link to tut and tips) pic heavy in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by HHjamie on: September 19, 2007 12:09:19 PM
I found this awesome tut for these super cute monogrammed felt pillows via craftzine, and have starting making a bunch for Christmas presents.

3rd finished pillow for my cousin Rachel. (and my favorite!!!)

2nd finished pillow for my boyfriends sister Jessie.

1st pillow I made for my sister Lindsey.

(I LOVE this fabric!)

Tut can be found here at jcarolinecreative.com. http://www.jcarolinecreative.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Store_Code=JC&Screen=FELTPILLOW

A couple tips...
- Make sure to use interfacing on the back of the felt to keep it from stretching and give more stability.
- I found that its better to print the letters, then trace the outline on the back of the paper. Then place the original printed side face down on the back of the felt (the letter will look backwards). Then start to cut.
- Screw using the hobby knife to cut out the letters. I found that good old fabric scissors worked the best.
- Bigger the letters, the better (and easier to sew!)

19  Purple, brown and reconstructed all over in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by HHjamie on: August 14, 2007 07:56:13 PM
Here's for my second recon...

My coworkers have discovered that I'm learning to sew and have been begging for me to make them things. A trip to Ross and an hour later, we had a dress.



The patterned top and bottom edging are from a $7 tube top. The brown skirt is from a huge shapeless sack of a dress we found for $5. (sorry...I always forget the before pics) The girl I made it for loves it and it fits her perfectly. Yea!

20  Not your mothers boring old doily... in Crochet: Completed Projects by HHjamie on: June 11, 2007 08:42:48 PM
I had the urge the other day to use this teeny little hook someone had given me. This is what flew off of it...

Pic with leaves and little pink toenails!

It's purple! I love the color, which I think brings life back into the doily. Ha!

Getting closer...

..and closer!

I love that my camera takes great up close pics.

Pattern can be found here.

I realized halfway through that my hook was too big, so I went out and bought a teeny tiny hook to make another one in bright blue. I'll post that one when I'm finished. Smiley


Thanks for looking!
