12  Key Chain Pouch Wallet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by mhills on: August 29, 2009 09:41:12 PM
I finally have had a chance to post the Key Chain Pouch Wallet that I have made.  I used the pattern from AiviloCharlotte Designs.  Very easy instructions to follow.  The next time, I will make a bit smaller..  The instructions have iron on Velcro but I tried it but it wouldn't stick.  I was going to use some craft glue but decided to finally use the Snap Tool I have had and never had used.  Not bad for my first snaps. I am sure they will get better with practice. 

If anyone has any tips on installing snaps, they would really be appreciated.

13  Another Hobo Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by mhills on: April 26, 2009 09:22:26 PM
I just love this tutorial http://www.jcarolinecreative.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Store_Code=JC&Screen=HOBO_BAG

I just made this one for my nieces 16th birthday.  I am putting it into the mail tomorrow.   

Chocolate Lollipop fabric with brown/white pocka dots

It has a zippered pocket. I didn't put a closure on it.  Sometimes those are such a pain to get opened when you have to put your wallet in your purse.
So, I kept it out.

Let me know what you think.. I just love the way it came out....

15  HELP, Does anyone know the name of this fabric? in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by mhills on: February 20, 2009 05:38:07 AM
I saw this fabric online and would love to make a tote bag out of it but I don't know who makes it nor the name of it...

Can anyone tell me what the name of it is and who makes it??

16  Journal Cover in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by mhills on: January 25, 2009 08:54:45 AM
I made another journal cover using Heart of Mary's great tutorial. http://pinoyinoz.blogspot.com/2008/09/some-great-news.html

 The only problem I always have is that I am using different size journals and I always have to cram them into the cover.  This time, I actually had to cut the journal about 1/4 inch.  So, I have made a note to myself to add at least another 1/4 - 1/2 inch to the height for my pieces..... Otherwise, it is so easy to follow the wonderfully written instructions.....

Thanks again- Heart of Mary......

Here is my latest.  I love it... I am keeping this one.

I love the button I found..

The inside has blue butterfly fabric..

17  Brown & Pink Butterfly purse/tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by mhills on: January 11, 2009 08:39:14 AM
I have been wanting to make this purse/tote for my niece.  I just finished it.  It is a tote bag size about 11X12 but has purse type strap.  Two pockets inside.  I was going to put in a magnetic closure but sometimes those are such a pain to deal with each time you need something out of the bag.  So, I didn't.. Maybe I'll put one in the next one.  I have some really cute Valentine's fabric that I am making another one out of ...

Sorry for the blurry picture.

Comments welcome

18  Minnesota Vikings Quillow in Quilting: Completed Projects by mhills on: January 03, 2009 07:08:41 PM
I made this Quillow for my husband for Christmas.... It turned out great and he loves it.... The top and pillow pocket are purple Minnesota Vikings cotton and the back is lighter purple Minnesota Vikings Fleece.. Its really big.  Its about 53" wide and about 112" long.  He can take it to the ball games and sit on it and when it gets really cold, he can pull it out of the pillow/pocket and wrap himself with it....

This is the entire blanket folded into the pocket.

This is what the fleece looks like. 

Let me know what you think... My son's have placed their orders with me.

I have been wanting to make this little purse since I got the magazine and finally did it last night.  Sorry for the horrible pic but the fabric is a brown cotton with pink butterflies, the lining and handle is brown with pink pokadots.  It has a magnetic snap, no pockets..

This is a gift for one of my nieces.. I am mailing it to her today and I hope she will like it.
