1  I made the cutest needle books in Completed Projects by Loralynn on: April 07, 2008 07:44:00 AM
I've been wanting to make one and finally got around to doing it.  Well, they are like oreo cookies...you can't have just one!!!

I put pockets on both sides on the inside so I can store little things.

They sure were fun to make!  I can't wait to make more.  I am making one for my Mom to go with a sewing basket that I made for her for Mother's day.  As soon as I get that all done, I will post pictures of them!

Thanks for looking!

2  Butterfly Purse & Wallet (now udated with beady goodness!) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Loralynn on: April 03, 2008 10:51:31 AM
I found some fabric that I couldn't live without and I wanted to make myself a new purse for spring so...

zippered pocket:

open pockets:

wallet open:

For the wallet I used the tutorial provided by Vanyel in this post:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=237259.0

For the purse, I kind of sliced and diced from three tutorials here plus instructions for a placemat purse I made a while back.  Here are the links to get you started on your own springtime purse:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=32204.0  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=3105.0  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=8541.0

Thanks to all the wonderful people who posted tutorials for these things.  They really helped me get started with my own bag and I appreciate it!

Okay, so as my purse was sitting on the table, it just didn't look finished.  So I added some beaded fringe to the flap.  I like it even better now!

3  House Pincushion in Needlework: Completed Projects by Loralynn on: February 15, 2008 11:00:27 AM
I created a pincushion from felt, beads and embroidery!
Images are clickable!!

There have been requests for me to put more information here so people don't have to go to my blog, so here you go.....

I'm really happy with the way this turned out. I incorporated felt (my latest obsession) embroidery and my love of beads in this. I used a cardboard foundation for the base and the walls so that they wouldn't bulge so much when I stuffed it. For weight, I used some curtain weights that I found in a medicine bottle that my Grandmother saved (she saved everything and usually in old medicine bottles!)...thank you Grandma. I use this almost every day and it is full of needles and pins. I wish I could take credit for my idea, but I ran across this website: http://belladia.typepad.com/bella_dia/2007/06/little-houses.html and got inspired! I will be making more of these little darlings! It was such fun to cut out paper templates and draw on them what I wanted that part of the house to look like. That it actually turned out as I envisioned is awesome! Soon to come...a matching needle case!

6  My sewing corner in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by Loralynn on: November 21, 2007 11:00:50 AM
I finally have a sewing corner.  After years of sewing at the diningroom table and having to put everything away all the time I "took back" some room in my house just for me!  If you are interested you can read more about it in my blog.  Here's my space:
I am a happy girl!

7  I made a poke bonnet! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Loralynn on: November 18, 2007 04:29:43 PM
My daughter is going to be in a play on Tuesday.  She is playing Sara Josephina Hale, the woman who convinced Lincoln to make Thanksgiving a national holiday.  I didn't want to make a whole costume and she has a dress that will work well, so I made her a bonnet to wear.  I am really pleased with how it turned out!
