1  Re: Sewing Kit Swap (*Signups closed* Mail by 08/01/08) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by chicomich on: August 25, 2008 07:25:34 AM
Sorry it took so long to post pictures! I took the pictures while ago, it was getting them off the camera I had trouble with.

Take a look at all the great stuff I got from hotgluegert!

Here's the box/kit. She used some red fabric with awesome gold sparkly swirlies on it.

The loot! She packed it, woohoo! Tape measure, scissors, safety pins, needle threaders, a thimble, buttons, fabric, pin cushion, probably other stuff I forgot to mention... Oh yeah, a seam ripper that will be in none of the pictures because I've already used it a lot and forgot to put it back. :p

She decorated this little sewing kit for me too!

This tape measure is so cute!

AWESOME pin cushion! He is very cute. His legs and head are made of clay (maybe) and his body is felt.

Buttons! There was another set too, of brass hearts, but I can't find that picture right now. My sister has claimed one of the flowers as the zipper pull for her sweatshirt (Is that what those are supposed to be? I have no idea).

I love everything! The tape measure, pin cushion, seam ripper, and scissors have already been used quite a bit. Especially the seam ripper. Cheesy

Thanks hotgluegert!

I received from zombiekilla yesterday! She made me THE most awesome Shrinky Dink necklace! Sorry these pictures suck; they don't do justice to her work!

First, the totally awesome tin the necklace came in! I'm slightly obsessed with cherry blossoms, so she decorated it with Shrinky Dink blossoms on clay (I think) branch.

Here's a closeup of one of the blossoms. It's so nicely drawn!

Here's the actual necklace. It is sooo pretty! My name is written in the most gorgeous writing (I am so jealous!). I love swirlies, and the branches swirl all over the place. The cherry blossoms are awesome! And, there is one rhinestone to add a little zing to it.

Just as bad of a picture, but a slightly better angle. Man, I need to make a diffused light box!

Thank you so much, zombiekilla! I LOVE it!

Wow, that pear pincushion is amazing! And the fabric on the embroidery organizer is so cute!

Guess what, I received today too! Christinacoghill made me some killer pincushions. You ready to see them? Okay.

Here's the first one. Isn't it cool? The fabric is so groovy! The bottom is the the same fabric, but there is more pink on it, and it has a pink button. This one has already been put to use!

Here it is from the side.

This one is sooo pretty! I love cherry blossoms, so christinacoghill made this for me! I love how the flowers seem to steadily climb up the side. The stuffing in this one isn't hard-packed so it is so soft and squishy! I keep squeezing and poking it. It is hard to resist.

Here are both pincushions, chillin' together. Best friends!

Thanks so much, christinacoghill!

Thanks so much for the dimensions! I made one for my niece's birthday on Saturday; I know she'll like it!

I didn't use any interfacing 'cause I like bags to be easy to stuff into a drawer, so it's very floppy. I shoved a blanket in there for the picture. :p

Thanks again! Your design (and bag) is fabulous!

This one includes patterns, but it it missing one small pattern. >.>

This also comes with the April 2007 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting; I couldn't find a picture of it.

All these pincushions look awesome! So much creativity.

I received from Hambox today, and I got two rockin' pincushions!

(I just realized I forgot to take pictures of the bottoms of these; they are totally reversible..I'll get those up later).

This one is adorable! I love how she centered the pink flower. And the green button is perfect. I love the matte finish...very appropriate for the fabric (the color is better in reality).

This one is my favorite! First of all, I have seen this fabric and coveted it! It is so funky. I love the giant button, too!

This shows the size differences. The small one is destined for my sewing box. I love the big one! I can just reach over and stab a pin in its general direction, and I'm likely to hit something!

See? Look how popular they are already! Willy loves them! (He loved the box, too).

Wow, Baby, that Buckbeak is awesome! I love it.

Everyone's stuff is so great! This gallery rocks. Tongue

Anna, the wand is the paper wand everyone has been making - there is a tutorial for a wand that lights up as well (http://www.instructables.com/id/EU718C9F3YWV6QY/)

Theatregirl, I'm so glad you liked your package. I had so much fun making it and thinking up things for it. Here is a picture of my sister modeling the purse - she's smaller than you or I, so it looks a little big on her.

I got your package today, and I love it! So many awesome things I now get to brag about!

Everything looking super groovy!

An awesome DA bandana, which I will be using as a do-rag. Tongue

Gorgeous bookmarks! (The one on the left is blue and silver - bad picture, sorry).

Close up of the charms at the end of the second bookmark.

Disgusting candy! I have never seen these ones before; I am stoked!

How cool are these phoenix feather earrings? SO cool!

I am in awe of this pillow! I want to learn to embroider, and this is done so beautifully!

Closeup of the pillow (the picture is crooked, not the embroidery).

Radish earrings are essential to every Harry Potter fan's wardrobe...and now I haver some! Aren't they adorable?

Are you jealous of my rockin' shirt? Yeah, you are! I forgot to take a picture of the back; it says "Luna."

And last, but so not least, my favorite of the bunch...TREVOR! Isn't he adorable? Luckily I got the picture before my nephew stuck the frog's head in his mouth, yay!

8  Tiny Happy Shoulder Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by chicomich on: July 15, 2007 07:42:30 PM
I came across the tutorial here: http://tinyhappy.typepad.com/tiny_happy/2006/06/shoulder_bag_tu.html and I had to try it. I cut the pattern out of newspaper. My finished bag is below.

I LOVE this fabric I found in clearance at Joann (Addie used the green version in a bag here - https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=182633.0) Oh, and I added a thin layer of fleece - it is so soft now!

Things I want to do differently next time:
  • Thinner straps - I couldn't tell if the pattern said 3.5 or 3-5. I did 4 inches, thinking it would be folded in half (not looking ahead >.>) and these straps are huge. 2.5 or 3 inches next time, I think.
  • Better closure - I just sewed some magnets between the lining and the fabric, and it isn't working out. The bag is just too floppy; it needs a sturdier closure.
  • Pocket closure - some velcro on those pockets would be nice - they are pretty big to have no closure.

Also, I don't really dig the seam down the center, but that is unavoidable with that pattern. I actually don't notice it; you just need to be careful with the fabric you choose, I suppose.

I never noticed until I turned it around for this picture, but this bag looks pretty good inside out, doesn't it? I guess it is reversible! Well, maybe with some pocket alterations.

Phew, I am done posting pictures of all the projects I have put off until now. Tongue

9  Corduroy Purse From Pants in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by chicomich on: July 15, 2007 07:26:55 PM
I've always wanted one of these purses made from a pair of pants, and I finally gave it a try with this (http://thelongestyear.typepad.com/my_weblog/2006/11/here_it_is_a_fi.html) tutorial. It was so easy, and only took me about 1/2 hour, and I am SLOW. I left it unlined, and my sister claimed it before I could add a belt or any other decor, but I like it anyway. Smiley (Sorry for the bad pictures)

10  Re: Tutorial: Cosmetic Bag - with link to another TUTE !! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by chicomich on: July 15, 2007 07:20:12 PM
Thanks so much for this tutorial! This was the first "Craftster" project I tried, and I am so happy with how it came out.

This first image was my practice bag, since I was pretty much guaranteed to screw it up. It turned out very nice, though, and I was bummed I just used an old sheet to make it! (The dollar is there to give you an idea of size, BTW).

I wanted the next one I made to be a bit longer, so I just added a couple of inches of length to it. It could hypothetically be a pencil case now. The lining even looks awesome, except for my amateurish slip-stitching.

Thanks again for the stupendous tutorial!
