11  Toilet "tree" bag for the birds... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by mimi123333 on: March 24, 2009 07:20:32 PM
I'd been wanting a toiletry bag for quite some time, but couldn't find one I liked.  And then I thought I'd make one... using my boyfriend's bag as my template.  Boy was I in over my head, but I'm really happy with out it turned out.

Now... on to the pictures...

12  Re: Pin Cushion Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by mimi123333 on: September 26, 2007 07:27:01 PM
I got this very lovely sea turtle pincushion today from Cat!  Thanks so much.  The coolest part.... the shell comes off and can tie to my wrist so that I'll have a pincushion with me where ever I may go and what ever I may be doing. 

I'll be sending out tomorrow from the post office at school.  Hope it's not too crowed 'cause it's the first day of classes, but if I don't do it from school there's no way I'll be able to get to the post office from school 'cause I've got to be there from 8:15 until 5pm.  It's going to be a long day and I'll be teaching my first lab course so wish me luck!

This has been a fun and challenging swap.  I've enjoyed looking at everyone's amazing pincushions.  You all are an inspiration!

P.S. Tonight, I'm feeling like the queen of run-on sentences.  I better get this under control before tomorrow comes!

13  Apron goodness in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by mimi123333 on: September 10, 2007 05:02:27 PM
I think I need to move my straps out and make the entire thing a bit wider.  But... all in all I'm very happy with how this turned out.
What do you think?

I was inspired by this apron from anthropologie and gave it my best shot.

I got mail!!  I love love love my new scarf.  The color is amazing and I love the pattern too!  And the surprise fabric pieces are beautiful.  I was starting to think of ideas for them and then the thought crossed my mind ... if I use these then that means I'd have to cut them up... they're too pretty to cut up!  Hopefully at some point I'll have moved passed this stage and will make something wonderful out of them, but at the moment I'm just going to be admiring.  Ok, ok, enough blabbering and on to the pictures.  (sorry about the lack of action shots.)

15  Natural Knitting Bag and Needle Roll in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by mimi123333 on: August 29, 2007 08:40:31 PM
I did this for I can ___ but I can't ___ Swap.  It took me ages to pick out the fabrics for my partner, but she says I did great on my choices so the time paid off.  This was my first swap and it was so much fun to have a good excuse to make something and try new techniques - the squared edges of the bag and the "quilted" leaves on the needle roll and the magnetic button.

I know I said I'd post as soon as I got home, but then I started working on my mammoth scrap book project and got distracted.  So finally, here are the pictures.

Just wanted to share a couple of my lastest pics.  I love the color tones in these.

18  Daydreamed in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by mimi123333 on: August 19, 2007 06:10:11 PM

"Daydreamed on the bank again
I was swimming with the fish
And I thought this time that it may be true
But my toes just touched the water"
--Norah Jones

I know this is my second entry, but I was much more inspired with this one and it's all my original drawing.  

P.S. Do lyrics count as a quote?  I hope so, because I love this song.  This is what I see when I listen to it with my eyes closed.

19  life... in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by mimi123333 on: August 19, 2007 04:09:51 PM
"Life itself is the most wonderful fairytale of all." -- Hans Christian Anderson

The images used were taken for the TV series "Planet Earth".  This is an amazing documentary and if you haven't seen it it is a must.  I paired these images with this quote because the footage in the documentary is mind blowing and reminds us of how amazing our lives and this world are.

We should never forget the wonder of children.  And we should continue working every day to make sure that the splendor of our world today is not trapped in the world of paper fairytales for the future generations.

20  The Bag! in CHALLENGE 20 ENTRIES by mimi123333 on: August 04, 2007 04:46:43 PM
Here's my entry.  I was at the fabric store for what felt like hours trying to find just the right material to make a bag for my sister for her birthday.  And then... in the span of less than two minutes I turned around and there it was - the exact right fabric and I fell in love.  It'll be hard to part with this bag, but hopefully she loves it.  
Here it is:

And here's the detail of the flower on the front:

And lastly, the inside and view of the pocket for just about anything:

Good luck to all the great bags out there.  Even if you don't win it's great to be making reusable bags.  That's a prize it itself!! Cheesy
