My Craftier’s Companion Ultimate tool tote bag with embroidery
Happy Thank’s Giving to you all.
I have finally gotten the chance to post up some pictures of my tote bag that I made for my Craftier’s companion Ultimate tool. Just to update you I started this tote bag a while ago and I finally finished it several weeks ago.
I used fabric I had in my stash and I did not use a pattern to make this tote. I just went with the size of the first piece of fabric I had and went from there. I used seven pieces of fabric plus I used batting in between the layers of the front and back and sides and bottom. For my sides and bottom I made what I call extenders to make the bag have a deeper depth then just a standard tote bag to make it larger inside the bag.
However if I were to make it again I would use the nylon webbing straps for the handles and the sides and bottom to make it more durable and give the handles more strength then just regular fabric. With that said the handles are working very nicely as it the sides and the bottom. The Craftier’s companion Ultimate tool is heavy. The handles are accommodating the weight.
Here are my pictures. Just a note I am not a advanced sewer like many of you that sew. I am really just a craftier sewer. My work is not perfect and I have come to live with that. I am the Queen of Sew it and ripe it out with my trusty little seam ripper.
First picture is embroidering the second flower on my tote using my singer sesq6000 and the 3900 designs from singer and sold here on HSN.
next picture is showing how my design is looking in the hoop
Next picture is showing the completed first flower using the 3900 singer cd
Next picture is of the second flower completed using the 3900 singer CD
Next picture is of the front of the completed tote bag
Next picture is showing the inside pocket of the tote bag the green is the pocket and the blue is the inside back panel.
the next picture is the outside pocket that is sewn to the front panel of the tote bag. I also embroidered the wordage using my singer sesqu6000.
the next several pictures are the tote filled with the Craftier’s companion ultimate tool and Spectrum Noir pencils and card stock folder used for holding my card stock to use with this this tool.
I also used my brother scan n cut with printer fabric to add the little twins to the center of the pocket. Just mix media with it. Like i said it is not perfect but fine for my use.
thank you all for taking a look and hope you all have a very Happy Holiday.
Your HSN friend,
I have also made some boxes with my Brother scanncut. I also made some drawings from designs found in my scanncut. I used my new universal pen holder and just use a regular ball point pen.
I then colored them in with my spectrum noir 72 markers pack that I bought here on HSN
item # 383-895.
When I was done I took them back to my scanncut and cut them out. I could place these on to my boxes but I have another idea for them.
To make boxes I have a flash drive with box designs on it. For those of you that have the cm350H purchased here on HSN item # 442-750. This item is sold out. You should have a few 3d designs like some boxes in your designs found with in your scanncut. When I cut my boxes I found that leaving them the exact size as is stated for them, I got a better cut. When I tried to enlarge them my cut was off meaning it cut it out nicely but when I went to glue it together parts of the scored sides did not match up correctly.
These boxes are mostly a sweet treat style box or for small gifts. The box that I made is nice for a bracelet earrings or a small necklace gift. Plus treats like cookies or several candies etc.
The little house is my favorite box. I could really dress it up with some detail like grass and a tree with a little bird or what I would really like to do is make it a ginger bread house and make several and use it as a little Christmas village. I can see many possibilities with this little house. I used A.G. Card stock for it and it cut very nicely and scored very nicely and folder very nicely using my scanncut.
Here are the boxes that I made showing the ultimate too.
Here are the cut outs I did with the scanncut Universal pen holder and Spectrum Noir markers.
the tree is really green as is the wreath. Something is up with my camera.
This is one of the many snow flake designs.
Later I will post up pictures of the Camo PJ’s. I just need to do the waistband and hem the legs. Wish me luck on that
Your HSN friend,
Hi Again, My Friend. I just popped back in to check up on all the posts I’ve missed. Thanks for explaining your faux quilting , I really liike the way you did it. I love the box you made. Is there a way to make dividers for it? I need something like that for my little Christmas village people and accessories, but I would need to customize the dividers to size. Great work and Thank You for sharing your talent. Big HI to all the other posters. Have a great and crafty day everyone.
Just to add back in the item#436-607 of the Ultimate Crafter’s Companion Birthday Bundle that I have.
I had to take it out as it was giving an error message and then I could not go back and add it in.
Your HSN friend,
Just an update on my tote. I forgot to mention that I did guilt it. However my rendition of quilting is what I call faux quilting, meaning I measured out the squares after sewing the back middle and front together. I then sewed down on the lines with my sewing machine. To get the effect of quilting without going to all the steps of cutting squares and sewing them together and then sewing it to the middle fabric and then sewing it down and making it then one piece.
It is much easier for me to do this and less time consuming for me as I would more then likely never finish it.
I took to long on finishing this really simple project any way.
Your HSN friend,
Cupatea this tote is just lovely. I really like the way you embellished your tote. Such talent, do the ladies on JPA9 know you are so skilled? Lbvs The tote is beautiful, the size perfect, and the color is great. Great job!
Thank you for stopping in my post and thank you so very much for the very kind words regarding my tote
I did not get to come back here yesterday as planned. I am replying now to your lovely and most confidence building post thank you:smileyhappy:
As I am using this CC tote I am really liking it better then I thought.
I finally got to make a box using the Ultimate crafting tool that I bought here.
I created this little plain box out of cheaper card stock and followed the directions using the basic beginner dvd for the Ultimate tool and watched from my new computer.
The box measures 41/2wide x7"Longx2" deep.
With that said you can decorate the box as you would like. I did not because I wanted to get it posted here. I do find the box to be very functional and sturdy even for using cheaper card stock.
I can use the box for putting little bits an bobs or anything that will fit in it.
Here are two pictures of the box one with lid and one showing the inside of the box and the lid off to the side.
I did like creating this but I a going to go back to my scan n cut and check out the my 3D box usb flash drive and try to create a box similar to this if I have one. I forgot to say what board I used from the Ultimate tool birthday addition. I used the Boxer board that came with mine. My card stock was 8.5×11 standard card stock.
I will use my A.G. card stock and see how that works outs.
Here are some up close Pictures of the Crafters Companion tool with the boards that I got with it. The Boxer board the sweet treats boards, The envelope box creator.
Well DBQR Thank you again my favorite lamby friend:smileyhappy:
As always your HSN friend,
Great job, CupaTea!! Your pictures and description are wonderful. I can understand why you might feel the webbing might work better for the handles. Anyway, your sewing is terrific. You should be real proud of this project. I love the colors and the embroidery. Thanks so much for sharing what you do!!
Just popping in to say Happy Thank’s Giving to everyone that has stopped by and posted like Possum29 or just gave a look see.
May you all have a fabulous delicious food day and enjoy the day. Again thanks for checking out my post and my tote.
Your HSN friend,
Ohhh, I LIKE that sewing machine! Great job on the tote. It’s really pretty and practical. Looks like you thought of everything. I wanted to let you know, I bought AG’s 12 x 24 paper to make some paper lanterns, including the ones from her holiday decor cartridges. So I’ve added even more to my list of projects that never get done. LOL. I also picked up some 11 x 17 cardstock that I found at a couple of the big chain hobby and craft stores. I’ve got my eye on item no. 426-490 the Crafter’s Companion "The Big Score" scoring board. I like that it is 12 x 18, instead of your standard 12 x 12 size. It should come in handy with these larger papers. I just hate buying another scorer when I have 3 already. Good luck on your Hubby’s PJs although I doubt you need it. From your pictures it looks like you’ve got a pretty good handle on sewing.:smileyhappy: Always wonderful talking crafts and fun projects with you,CupaTea. Can’t wait to see what is next. :smileyhappy: Your Friend, Possum29
CupaTea!! I was just thinking yesterday that I had not seen you in the forums for awhile and now here you are. Your pictures aren’t up yet, but looking forward to when they will be. I’ll keep looking in, until then your description is excellent on how you did everything. Glad to see you back. Your Friend, Possum29.
