1  Newest Re Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Denarella on: January 28, 2009 09:12:24 AM
This is my newest bag that is made from recycled sweaters.  It also includes vintage buttons and vintage fabric for the handles and bottom.  The lining is a vintage bedsheet.

This bag works great for keeping you warm as well as all your stuff.  I live in Florida and it is great for me too because it is really not that hot carrying it!

Front - whole view

I love this lining of the bag - it adds such a punch to the black outside.

I would love to know what you think!

2  New Re Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Denarella on: January 20, 2009 06:48:21 AM
A new year and a New Bag -

This is the Re Bag because it uses:

* Re-cycled felted wool Sweaters
* Re-claimed Vintage outdoor Fabric
* Re-purposed vintage bed sheets
* Re-used vintage buttons


They are super fun to make and and I get to be creative with the outside design which uses the felted seams from the sweater when I cut them up.

Thank for looking!

I have a LARGE stash of vintage fabric and wool felted sweaters and I have been trying to figure out  project to help my stash get smaller, so that I can buy more. . .  you know how it goes.

Here is my new bucket bag.  It is made with a felted wool sweater, vintage outdoor fabric, and lined with vintage bed sheets.

Bottom has another piece of the vintage outdoor fabric.

Inside even includes a snap and pocket!

The size is about 12" high by 4" deep and 9" wide.

Thanks for looking and I would love to know what you think of it!

4  Found Vintage Hand Pieced Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Denarella on: January 11, 2009 10:11:19 AM
I don't normally post in this group, but thought you all would like to see this.

I found this hand stitched and pieced quilt at my local thrift store.  It is about a twin size and is so neat.  The use of fabric, I can only imagine is from cut up old clothing.

I haven't decided what to do with it yet, but it is just too neat!

Detail of the hand stitching.

What do you think I should do with it!

Thanks for looking!

6  Vintage Recycled Sling Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Denarella on: June 01, 2008 08:33:37 PM
I made this bag, we have all seen this style before.  I call it a sling bag, because you just sling it over your wrist and GO!

It is made from Vintage Fabric and lined with vintage recycled sheets.

Here is a better shot of the inside including pocket.

What do you think?  Do you know the ACTUAL name of this bag style?

Thanks - Dena

7  Re: Felted Baby Whale in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Denarella on: May 20, 2008 10:10:33 AM
I have finally finished this project.  I have added eyes and the clip to connect him to things.

The eyes gave me trouble, until I figured that paper punches would work on felt.  So I fused the felt to a fusible web. Used the punches to punch out the white and the black.  Fused the black to the white.  Hand stitched them to the whale and then fused the white to the whale.

They are on there good and tight, which is good for a baby toy!

8  Whale of a good time in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Denarella on: May 02, 2008 01:39:17 PM
Here is the daddy to the little whales that I made before http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=241307.

I crocheted a Japanese Pattern from http://link.rakuten.co.jp/1/001/714/?url=27ss/27-kujira.pdf with a larger hook and then Felted it.  I added eyes and a mouth with other wool needle felted on.



He turned out super cute!  Hope you enjoy!

My hubby has been bringing his lunch to work and he needed a reusable bag, that was not only cute but manly so that his office mates would not laugh at him.

Here it is.

Two detail shots:

I used the pattern from http://www.ohfransson.com/oh_fransson/little-shopping-bags-tuto.html with changes.  More detail listed on the blog.

10  Felted Baby Whale in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Denarella on: April 20, 2008 01:57:54 PM
I needed a little whale for baby gifts that I am making.  The pattern is still a work in progress and I will post it if others are interested.

Shown on a 6"x11" piece of paper.


The loop is so that he can be attached to a stroller and not get lost!

Just one question - Do you think that he needs eyes and a mouth?

Thanks - Dena
