1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sewing in a straight line - Using a magnet as a guide? on: June 06, 2009 07:27:02 PM
A stack of Post-It's makes can be used to make a great (and temporary!) seam guide as well.  Just stick a small stack of them at the right mark on your machine and sew away.  Smiley

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: a teeny tiny purse on: February 02, 2009 07:53:02 PM
 That is awesome!!!  I'm joining the "I want one!" club, too.  Some of my friends carry these huge purses and I just don't get it.  Give me something big enough to stash keys, phone and cash/plastic and I'm good to go.  I'm a beginning sewer, so thanks for the inspiration.  Maybe someday I could make something like this! Shocked

That's just so simple and lovely.  Awesome gift for a new little one!!  Is it from a specific pattern or book?  Great to know it works up quickly, too.  I just recently picked up my knitting needles again after a bit of a break and I'm currently doing the Santa motorcycle helmet cover that's been posted on here for my brother.  Must finish helmet cover....must resist urge to start cute, cuddly blanket.  So much yarn, so little time............ Cheesy

  Grin Grin  Thank you soooooooooo much for posting this!!  Sleepy sheep looks awesome by the way!  It just so happens that I'm making a baby blanket for a friend right now that has 6 white sheep and 1 black sheep on it. 

I know it sounds strange, but it may be the coolest blanket I've ever made.  I don't know if I'll be able to give it away!   Wink   You can see it here

I was hoping to find a little something to go with it and this will be absolutely perfect.

Thanks again!

 Shocked  The blanket is really beautiful!  I've had that book forever and, while I've made several blankets out of it, this blanket never really captured my attention until now.  It's the perfect time though since I have a friend who's expecting.  She's having a girl, but Mom is not a girly-girl (more into classic and neutral) and I'd planned on looking for a blanket that wasn't girly or even particularly babyish.  I'd been planning on using antique white or ecru for the color...and now I think I've found my pattern!  Thanks for sharing!
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Re: Bootie Bouquet- help?!? on: January 30, 2008 08:09:40 PM
I remember seeing something exactly like that in a magazine once.  It was made from a bunch (or more than 1 depending on how big you want it) of silk flowers.  You can get really nice big bunches at Wal Mart for $3-5.  Remove some of the flowers from the plastic stem and leave a few for decoration.   Roll the bootie, hat, onesie, whatever into the flower shape and use a rubber band to secure to the plastic stem at the base of the "flower".  Wrap the bouquet in tissue paper just like fresh flowers.  The 2 links below are a slightly different take, but would save you from buying as many flowers if $'s are a consideration. Grin



Good luck and happy crafting!
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Need baby ideas, and I don't know the sex! Help! on: October 01, 2007 06:36:15 PM
I recently did a crochet edged fleece blanket for a shower gift and I absolutely loved the way it turned out.  Lots of cute neutral or primary colored fleece out there in tons of themes from rainbow to Pooh.

has a mobile, bears, blocks, booties that could all be made in any of the awesome gender neutral colors everyone else has suggested.

If you have SnB: Happy Hooker..how about the Seija set in some nice neutral colors.  Sock monkey set from that book as suggested by Maltiriel is another good choice.  I've made both and they work up quick.

Good luck!!  I'm sure Mom and Baby will be thrilled with whatever you choose.  Cheesy

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help finding pattern from Michaels--crochet bag in Bernat Chunky Twists on: September 29, 2007 09:15:36 AM
I think I know the pattern you're looking for.  Those patterns were part of a contest and are on a separate page somewhere at bernat.com.  I had the website from a print ad or else I don't know how you would find them Huh
Anyway, go here......
You can click on the rooms and there are different patterns available as pdfs in each one which you get by clicking on the item.  I think you're looking for a bag that's in the Entry room.  Check out the other rooms also!  I don't know if those patterns ever made it to the main bernat page and most of them are really awesome.
