Some Finished Projects

Hope I can remember where I found the pattern!


Pattern was from this book by Tone Finnanger.  Used recycled old denim for the pouch and felt and beads for flowers.


Easy Peasy pattern.  Forgot to take a pic of the lining!  It was recycled shorts in hot pink Hawaii  fabric.


Another pouch.  I stupidly thought I could just "wing it" without a pattern!  But the end result was a lop sided pouch lol.


And finally some coasters.  I saw some made by a lady at work and loved them.  I thought "what a lovely scrap fabric project".  So being me I had to make some.  When I have made some complimentary things to go with them, they will be given as a gift.

That's it from me tonight because I have a deadline to finish a surprise gift for a work colleague tomorrow.   Show pics after delivery!

I like the shape of your coasters. I've winged my way thru' too many projects myself. It's quicker when you have a template.

These are so so cute Antmee! I love them. Yeah..I would have tried to wing it too--Ha! Wow..darling. I certainly want to try one of these. :o)

It isn't lopsided! It's artistic! I like it!

The coasters are really interesting, with the 6-sided shape and the fabrics are so oriental-feel..

Kristen said...

OMG, I made a lopsided pouch too, the same one! LOL! I like this one anyway!

I am so into pouches right now so I really love these. That hand stitching in pink is a lovely touch. Great idea on the coasters, too. I seem to have a phobia of sewing small things so I have an extra special appreciation of them because I'd be afraid to try them.

Those purses are so cute. I have also been toying with the idea to make myself a patchwork coaster for work but inspiration hasn't struck yet i.e. 'aha' moment. I currently use a cardboard one I procured from a local club.

I really like your pouches, especially the little toggles out of beads! The coasters are great too...great scrap fabric project!

Love those coasters - I like that green, it's summery!
The little purses are very cute. I really must make some myself, such a great gift.

Lovely pouches! I have that book, too. I like the beads, adds a nice touch. I need to make me some new coasters, I like handmade ones the best.

Beautiful work...love the material in those coasters. And I really like the shape of the case you made.

Hi Kylie, I just wanted to let you know that I featured your darling purse on my blog today--Sewing and Craft projects this week...

I wanted everyone to see how cute it is!

Dear Antmee,
I love these pouches! I am always wondering what to do with my boy's outgrown jeans! This is a great idea. I'm so glad that I stumbled across your blog while visiting Donna's...I think it's wonderful!
Blessings,
Laura
