Great work on all those pieces, what do you think how much more time do you need by work without hoop?
its faster to them on the reg machine because you can sew chain style I did all of these in about an hour & a half, I think it takes longer to choose your fabrics then it did to make them lol. Thanks so much. ~hugs~
Beautiful...Great work you did!!!
Thanks Sonja, ~hugs~
They are all so colourful and well done! Good job, Loralye, Kim and Bev.
Thanks Lidia very much, ~hugs~
Where there's a will, there's a way! Great job! Cute idea!
so true, thanks RockyB
You have been busy, well done.
thanks my friend. ~hugs~
Thank you very much Mary ~hugs~
WOW! You have been busy, they are all excellent Loralye. Well done, too, to Kim and Bev for assisting you. Cuties to the rescue once again, love Chris
terrific cuties indeed! Thanks so much Chris, ~hugs~
Having this set thanks to BEV aka bevintex made making these so much easier then fiddling with buttons & elastics. Kim AKA dragonflyer "walked" me through the directions & taught me how to use a stitch regulator so I could see how this was stitched out & she shared the instructions as she saw them. I am grateful for their help Cuties are wonderful!
Excellent how much are these and were do you buy them??
I looked on Amazon.com & esty sells them too & so does JoAnn's, depends on shipping too
I get them at JoAnn's and use a 50% coupon for them..really makes them reasonable to use...
Sorry to read that your machine is at "the beauty parlor" :) How wonderful that you used your sewing machine to make these delightful gifts! I am not familiar with KAM snaps and pliers, but probably should be :) I have a sneaking suspicion of which cutie is Kim that was so helpful. I may be wrong. But, I don't think so~ Your lip balm cases and the hand sanitizer case look great! Yeah, for sewing machines and yeah, yeah for friendly people willing to help!
thanks Nancy, they are terrific! ~hugs~
I am very thankful to dragonflyer & bevintex sorry I forgot to add their cute names. thanks to them I was able to make these
Kudos to you to figure out a way to do what you want to get done. They look great.
thanks Karen, I am quite pleased with them too. ~hugs~
Great work. Must make some of these as well. But it will not be until after Christmas. Hugs
Thanks Shirley, so many things to do but so little time lol
Look great!!! (Avon lip balms?)
lol yup thanks Gerry aren't they fun ones
They turned out very well. I like my kam snaps so much I look for things to put them on.
my mind is racing with ideas I AM HOOKED or should I say snapped! LOL thanks so much ~hugs~
Loralye, now that you're a pro. You'll have to show the rest of us how's it done! I think this is a great teachers gift idea for next year.
doing them by hand was actually really easy. I printed out the pattern then twice one for the back pc & one for the front. Because I knew I was making so many I traced them adding 1/4inch on to card board so it would last longer then paper. Then I traced the back onto 2 pcs of fabric right sides together stitched the round part @ the top & down the sides to the point that the front would start. The front I cut wrong sides together with the fold @ the top then I pressed everything & laid the front piece wrong sides together with the back pc wrong sides together & stitched down both sides where the front pc starts then you flip it right side out again. Then I added the snaps. A hint when adding the snaps it is easier if they go to the top of the front pc out of the way of your lip balm because then you can snap it open & shut without interference from the lip balm. I hope this helps
Thank you! I'll be making these for sure :)
Way to go Lor!!! Great job...glad I could help...gotta love the KamSnaps!!! I have them and the pliers...haven't use them yet...need to get them out and give them a whirl!
ah Kim they are so easy to use! I think there perfect for jobs like this! Thanks so much You know I appreciate your help!~hugs~
