1  Re: Let's see your sewing machine!! in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by geeber on: May 26, 2008 07:20:14 PM
These are my two babies.

My very first machine that I purchased, a White something or other. Just had her tuned up so she's in awsome working order (& very clean).

My second machine & the one I use the most, my Viking Prelude 360. I love this thing! We are great together & grumpy together. She gets me.  Roll Eyes

By the way, this is a great thread. It's fun seeing what everyone is creating on.

Pressing ham & sleeve roll

The ham on the bottom is a pressing ham. I think the one on top is called a sleeve roll. The shape of these make it much easier to press curves in your garments.

3  Flirty skirty overall recon (for the curvy gal) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by geeber on: May 24, 2008 03:58:47 AM
This was an idea I copied from violentjayne. Only mine is for a much more mature & plump figure. Very comfy to wear!!

From a pair of overalls that were too short in the legs, I cut the legs off right at the crotch saving the pockets. Then took a piece of fabric, sewed it into a tube. Gathered one end & attached to cut overall bottom.

Fun on the beach & the skirt already wet from romping in the ocean. & the bag was also home made by me.

Shaded, but to give a frontal view of creation.

Doesn't that torso look so thin?! ;> The grey shirt is also home made. & now that I'm 40, I get to wear ol' lady hats to protect my face from the sun. Fun!

eta a little sample of skirt fabric.

Here we go w/ the photos.

The purse that ameythestlily made is incredable. The pockets are huge and already have some of my stuff in there.

There is also a matching wallet & coin purse. Beautiful!

The inside pocket w/ the zipper is the most gorgeous floral fabric. I just love it.

A close up of the wallet.

And the coin purse.

Click below for the photos ameythestlily took. Much better then my photos.


As for the spoilers, there were many. Some jewelry trinkets, lip gloss, tissue (that have their own pockets in the purse) & chocolate. Of course, the chocolate is almost gone.

Job well done ameythestlily, you are wonderful.

I am very tardy w/ my pictures of the crafty goodness crafty_dame sent. But alas here they are. I'm still new to uploading photos, so bare w/ me.

The first photo of all the goodies minus the candy which is long gone. We both felt that we had enough notions, so we sent candy instead.

The second photo of the fabrics.  Already making plans for them.

& the increadable shirt crafty_dame made me. It fits perfectly & is just my style. She also sent a pattern for this shirt w/ 4 different views (styles). The store patterns are for dresses, b/c that is what I prefer to wear.

Thank you so much crafty_dame for the awesome loot!!!

6  Cool purse from cord pants in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by geeber on: December 04, 2007 05:24:16 AM
Here is a bag I made for the Christmas Stocking Swap for The Jenya. I started w/ a scrap of green cordery from my local Goodwill store. The belt is also from Goodwill. I used a pattern for a sling bag for the shell of the purse. The lining is a scrap of flannel & had around the house.

For the inside pocket I used the front pocket from a pair of black cordery pants that were handed down to me from a friend.

And the best part is the bottem of the purse in which I used the back pocket from black cordery pants. I left the tag intact & the pocket is still functional.

Pretty dang cool I think.

You rock Jamie!

Okay, here are all the goodies The Jenya sent to my life partner. The red & white knitted stocking, a sand worm scarf (that Dena is wearing to work now), homemade granola (very tasty!!), some peppermint shot glasses, treats for the doggies, an ornament w/ feathers, & a bicycle repair kit in a knitted little bag. Jenya did such a great job & Dena loves everything. All of that knitting must have taken her ages!!
Oh, & the plaid fabric & scone mix was for me. Yea!
