12 Days of Christmas in July, part 3 & Giveaway #3

Welcome to my 3rd and final blog post for the 12 Days of Christmas in July blog hop, hosted by Sarah.  Here are the bloggers for today (not including Sarah's blog post).




Sarah is having a great giveaway of Tula Pink's new holiday line, BUT, you have to comment on all the blog posts in the giveaway to enter.  

On my first blog post, I showed you 4 different projects (with a giveaway, too).  On my second blog post, I showed you 4 more projects (with another giveaway).  Here are my last 4 projects (with one last giveaway). 

For those that are new to my blog, I collect and sew on vintage sewing machines.  I have well over 60 sewing machines (I don't want to count any higher, so, I don't know how many more than 60 I have).  Almost everything you've seen in my blog posts have been made on vintage, straight stitch machines (including some of the applique).  

#9.  Aprons:

Aprons are cute, and don't have to be worn just in the kitchen.  I made some to wear, when I demo my vintage sewing machines.

Hubby's grandmother made me some aprons early in our marriage.  I like them, since they cover my clothes.  These aprons are about worn out, so, I made me some new ones, using the old aprons as patterns.

I made some aprons (using pre-made aprons from Hobby Lobby) long before I learned how to quilt.  Back then, fabric paints were popular.  Even I can follow the edge of a line with fabric paints.  I collected teapots long before I started sewing, and collecting vintage machines.

If I did this now, I'd outline those teapots with the blanket stitch.   I also made some for my boys, when they were little (they are fully grown now).

Christopher's

Aprons are great for women, men, kids, you name it.  Hubby has asked me to make him an apron to wear while he is working with his saws, to help keep some of the sawdust off his clothes, and, with pockets, so that he can hold some of  his tools.  I've been so busy preparing for this blog hop, that I haven't gotten his apron made yet (I did get the fabric).

#10.  Purses/Bags/Totes:

Who doesn't need a bag of some sort?  Hubby is a camper and back packer, and wanted to make some stuff sacks.  I helped him make a few (sorry, the picture below is off the web, since his stuff sacks are with him on a canoe trip).
Ultra Sil Stuff Sack 
Stuff sacks (picture off the web)


Hubby also saw a box bag that I'd made, and wanted it in rip stop fabric.  The 2nd bag was for a bag exchange I was in, and went to a man.

What about reusable grocery bags?  I made this one for a functional bag exchange.

A friend made me a bag, several years ago, then taught me how to make them myself.  Since then, I've had several requests for this bag.


Next, I found a great pattern for screening bags.
These bags are great for carrying folders, etc, along with a water bottle, or, used as a purse.

inside of bag
You can french seam the outside edges if you want.  A friend asked me to make one with a zipper closing.  I'm not good with zippers, but, with help, I figured it out.

I took a class, with my little quilt guild, to learn how to make this purse.

Since then, I've gotten several requests for these bags







I still need to make one of these for myself.

#11. Glasses Cases:

Do you know someone who wears glasses?  How about sunglasses?  Do you know someone who uses safety glasses (working around tools, etc)?  They might need a glasses case.

Hubby requested some glasses cases for his safety glasses.  I used a fabric with nuts & bolts, and another fabric with screws.
hubby's safety glasses cases

I had some scraps of fabric left over from making fabric trays, and decided to make some glasses cases with the scraps.

backs
 I use the middle one for my emergency phone charger.  I can find it easily in my purse.  It could also be used for cheater glasses.

I've even made one with the scraps leftover, when I recovered a sewing machine chair.

 #12.  Mug Rugs:

Who doesn't need a place to put their coffee cup or water glass?  Mug rugs are sew much cuter than a plain coaster.  Great for a dorm room, cubicle, teacher gift, etc.  You can make mug rugs in many sizes, from a coaster, to something that will hold a mug and a small plate for snacks.

This was my first mug rug.  I'd found a doily with a hole in the corner, at a garage sale.  I grabbed some fabric scraps, and made this at a demo of my vintage sewing machines.  I use this by my computer.

My little quilt guild exchanged mug rugs, with matching mugs, for Christmas one year.  Everyone was to find a mug for $1 (Dollar Store or thrift store, or out of our kitchen cabinets) and make a mug rug to go with the mug.  This is the mug rug I made, and the mug rug I received.  I wish I had pictures of all the great mug rugs from that exchange

Here is the mug & rug I  received.  I love the tractors.  The mug has a barn on the other side.

I've made several for gifts.

I've also made some using 'extra' blocks from quilt projects.  These both sit next to my sewing machine.

These are also great to keep around for those times that you need a quick gift (like Christmas).  Leave a couple under the tree, for those 'surprise' guests.

  31. Thanks again for another inspiring post. The number of things you have made amazes me. I loved your mug rugs the best since that is one of my favorite projects-quick and easy and lot of room for creativity on a small "canvas". Your idea to start with an inexpensive mug and make the mug rug to match was quite clever.

    ReplyDelete

  35. I have loved all of your posts for Christmas in July! So so many wonderful ideas! Your Singer aprons are amazing. I have a vintage Singer I inherited from my great grandmother. I've never used it, but have it in my sewing room. I'm hoping to one day have the time to figure out how it works as I think it would be neat to sew on the same machine my great grandmother used.

    ReplyDelete

  57. So many choices, I can't decide what I like the most. Your hubby's grandmother's apron is one I would love to make. The reusable shopping bag is another since the city I live in stopped allowing thin plastic bags this month. Thanks for all the inspiration!!

  58. More great ideas! I always like having a pocket in my totes for my water bottle-I picked up on using a piece of elastic-brilliant!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Wow you have made some wonderful things. I really like those aprons with the vintage machines on them. I bought a panel with four pictures of a vintage machine not knowing what I would do with it. Now I have the idea from you to make aprons! I also like those mug rugs and matching mugs.

Good for you!

  98. Lots of great ideas. There's only one thing wrong with your pictures - some of them have OU - friends don't let friends go to OU LOL - my daughter is an alum of OSU! I was also working toward an advanced degree at the same time and I became too ill to finish my degree. You are very inspirational with all your ideas. One of the most prolific and award winning quilters in guild wears an apron - found that out at a retreat. She puts her rotary cutter and some of her supplies in the pockets in the front. It seemed so natural to her that I almost bet that she does that at home to cut down on clutter on her work surface. I thought it was a great idea and would be a great habit to adopt. Thanks for another day of great ideas. Hope you know I was kidding about OU - know lots of people who are OU fans and have gone to OU, too.

  105. Your aprons are great! My husband's cousin made me a sewing themed apron I wear in my sewing room so that I always have my thread trimmer and tape measure when I go back and forth to the cutting table and ironing board. I also have an apron I use for working on sewing machines. As much as I use aprons, it just doesn't make sense to make reversible aprons to wear when one side gets dirty; seems like a waste of fabric when I could have one to wear and one in the wash. I use mug mats and fancy dishcloths like doilies. They are under special mugs filled with pencils and pens, pictures, jar candles, etc. Like aprons, you can't have too many of them. ;)

  129. Holy Dinah, woman, another packed post! Thank you! I love quilted bags, can relate to the "haven't made one for myself yet" syndrome LOL although I'm pretty good in the bag-making department as I have several. 60+ vintage machines? Holy Dinah again. I recently acquired a few, in my search for a Featherweight...ha. Got two of those and a couple others along the way!

    ReplyDelete
  130. Wow I love all your ideas! I made a "beach combing bag" with screens so the sand would fall through before they got in the car/boat. :) I haven't gotten feedback on how well it works, but it was really fun to make.

  139. You have shared so many great ideas during this hop, Cheryl! I go in fits and spurts when it comes to wearing my aprons. I'll wear them constantly for a few days, then go weeks or months without using them at all :)
