Tote - This is the start of a tote I am working on. Photo Gallery


So this is what I have so far of my tote. I am thinking of sewing some flag bunting to the upper corners to add a little more color, and I kinda feel like the grassy hill needs more. Still learning FMQ so I am not sure if I wanna do that or not. I still have ALOT of points in my stippling.
I also still have to get the batting for between the layers, I thought I had some and I don't.
I loved the design in the following link and got my idea from it. I just drew it out on plastic coated freezer paper, cut it out, sewed it on and ripped off the paper. Worked GREAT!!

All Things Belle: Saturday - Personal Projects

I can't wait to finish it!!!

Camper table re-do

Hey CampUnger cool tote! and also stopped by your bloggy, I like it!

This week Ive been doing more polishing on Belle and also some decoupag-ing on an old plastic folding table, should be perfect for the campsite! Its not "quilted" but its fabric in a modern patchwork style, here's a pic!

My next project is fixing up an old patio umbrella with some fabric paint and fringe trim...

In between camp trips/gardening- what projects are you all working on? Post pics!

Jezibels,

Love the table, and I really need some details here. I admit, I plan to steel this idea - yet make it mine - if you're willing to give. Did you turn the edges under and did you actually use decopage glue?

Carol

Carol, Thank you! All I did was use my vintage scraps and my rotary cutter, cut them up different lengths but all 2" wide, I did not fold them over the sides, I did not use decoupage glue I just watered down regular Elmers glue with water to make it very thin, paint the surface - lay the fabric - then brush over the fabric. Make sure you have all the bubbles out by pressing with your fingers. Wait till dry then apply coat or two or three of polyurethane. I really wanted some boomerang fabric but I admit Im too thrifty to buy it when I have heaps of scraps all over the place ; )

Hello again.... I'm looking to buy a new serger. This time I want to go with a 5 thread model with at least 2 thread cover stitch.

Anyone have recommendations? I've seen the new Singers on HSN... but the reviews are all over the place. What about a Janome or a Juki?

Thanks in advance, Paula

Janome and Juki are both good brands. My Janome has been through a lot of heavy use and still purrs like a kitten. Babylocks are also very good but also expensive. Singer has been junk for a long time. According to my tech the last good Singers were the 601 made in the early 70's.

If you can swing it I'd recommend a Brother Serger. The self-threading is worth the $. I upgraded my Bernina serger to a Brother a couple of years ago.

Yes, I picked up a copy!

I sew in my 16' Bambi on my Bernina 350. It's a 3/4 size and weighs less than 20 pounds. So far I've made a doll dress and enough blocks for a quilt for the bed. I made a quilt/tablecloth at home and the quilt will match. We have the laminate tabletop, and the edges were so sharp that I was getting bruises.
