1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pocket Clutch on: February 13, 2010 10:01:41 PM
I got this pattern from Keykalou. I already have a bunch of scraps lined up to make more of these. This one is about 1/2" larger than what the pattern size is so it will fit my money in it without having to fold my bills.









I forgot to take a pic of the back, but the back and the flap are one piece so it's the same fabric as the flap.

Thanks for looking  Smiley
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Crazy 'bout wallets TUTE...FINALLY! on: November 22, 2009 06:25:00 PM
First off, my apologies for taking forever to get this done! I'm one of those people who have a habit of taking on too many responsibilities at one time.

Anyway, this is the tutorial for the wallets I made in this post:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=320504.0

You will need:
1/4 yd. of the main fabric
1/4 yd. of the accent fabric
1/4 yd. stabilizer (or medium weight fusible interfacing)
9 in. zipper
sm. round velcro patch

1. You will need to cut your pattern pieces:

 A. BODY of the wallet will be 8.5"W x 9"H.

Cut 1-Main Fabric, 1-Accent Fabric, 2-Interfacing
 B. CARD SLOTS of the wallet:

     Slot A: 8.5"W x 3"H. Main Fabric--When cutting this piece, fold the fabric BEFORE cutting and place the pattern against the fold; trace, then cut (full size, unfolded would be 8.5" x 6")
     Slot B: 8.5"W x 3.5"H. Accent Fabric--When cutting this piece, fold the fabric BEFORE cutting and place the pattern against the fold; trace, then cut (full size, unfolded would be 8.5" x 7")
     Slot C: 8.5"W x 4"H. Main Fabric--When cutting this piece, fold the fabric BEFORE cutting and place the pattern against the fold; trace, then cut (full size, unfolded would be 8.5" x 8")
Cut Slot pieces look like this (Slot A on bttm of this pic)

 2. Lay these pieces on top of one another so that A is on top and C is on bottom. Then sew down the center

 C. COIN POCKET in the wallet:

     Top Piece: 8.5"W x 1.5"H. Main Fabric, Interf.--When cutting this piece, fold the fabric BEFORE cutting and place the pattern against the fold; trace, then cut (full size, unfolded would be 8.5" x 3")
     Bttm Piece: 8.5"W x 2.5"H. Main Fabric, Interf.--When cutting this piece, fold the fabric BEFORE cutting and place the pattern against the fold; trace, then cut (full size, unfolded would be 8.5" x 5")
 3. After cutting Piece B and fusing interfacing on, fold RIGHT SIDE TOGETHER and sew raw edge. Turn right side out and iron.
     *Back Piece: Use your pattern you cut for CARD SLOT C.--When cutting this piece, fold the fabric BEFORE cutting and place the pattern against the fold; trace, then cut (full size, unfolded would be 8.5" x 8")
Cut Coin Pocket pieces should look like this:

 4. Sew FOLDED EDGE of Top Piece and Bttm Piece to zipper

 5. Lay that on top of Back Piece (RAW EDGE of Back Piece will be at top with RAW EDGE of Top Piece)

 6.Sew FOLDED EDGE of Back Piece to SEWN EDGE of Bttm Piece.
 7. Lay Card Slots and Coin Pocket on top of the Inside Piece. *There should be 1" of space between Slots and Coin Pocket.

 8. Baste Slots and Coin Pocket and places pointed out here and on other side approx. 1/8" from the edge.

 9. WALLET FLAP:
     2"W x 8.5"H. Main Fabric, Interfacing

 10. Fold Flap and sew the sides

 11. Use a scissors to turn it right side out.

 12. Sew around the edge. Set aside.

 13. Lay EXTERIOR BODY PIECE on top of INTERIOR BODY PIECE (Right sides will be together)

 14. Sew along the edge, but leave an opening on the edge of the coin pocket.

 15. Trim excess around edge and clip corners. Turn right side out and iron.

 16. Slide Flap into opening and sew around the edge of the wallet.

 17. Use a ruler to fold wallet. Iron the wallet to set the fold.

 18. Put both pieces of velcro on Flap and press against the Body of the wallet.

     Should look like this when you pull the flap open.


Viola! You're Done!


Hope you are able to follow this tute easily  Smiley

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Messenger Bag & Wallet(pic obese) on: September 03, 2009 06:20:18 PM
So I think I'm addicted to yet another pattern  Roll Eyes I found all these fabrics on the 75% off shelf and thought they would look good together. My grandmother isn't so sure about the blue, but I like it. I think it gives it that eclectic quilt feel (if that makes any sense at all.lol)
Anyway, on to the pics!
The Front:


The Back: Has 2 big pockets with snaps.

The Inside: Also has 2 pockets. I managed to fit my planner, wallet, sunglasses, phone, ipod, perfume, lip gloss, a bottle of hairspray, and a small jar of salsa inside one day.....I was impressed!  Cheesy


I also made a wallet without a pattern. It's my first attempt at a wallet.
The Outside:

The Inside:


Thank you for looking! C&C Appreciated!
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Is it Halloween yet?! on: September 02, 2009 06:46:06 AM
So, it's September, which in my opinion is close enough to Halloween (my FAVORITE holiday  Grin) to start making themed bags.
I found this vintage-looking fabric last year and fell in love with it (I bought it in white AND black).
The pattern I got from Ali Foster and is really easy to follow. Smiley

The Front:

The flap has an elastic band that can hook to the pumpkin buttons...I put 2 on because depending on how much you put in the bag, you may need some give. And they're cute! Wink


The Back: Has 2 pockets


It also has an adjustable strap in case you want to hang it over your shoulder or across your body


The Inside: Has 3 pockets and LOTS of room!


Hope you like it as much as I do! C&C Appreciated
Oh and Happy Halloween  Grin
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Loves me some motorcycles! on: August 11, 2009 07:48:37 PM
So, it's that time of year when the guys bring out the bikes....yea!  Grin
Since I have motorcycles on the brain, I decided to make bike-related purses.
I used the Lots of Pockets pattern by Keyka Lou.(I've been using this one a lot) but I added a zipper closure on these instead of the snap that the pattern calls for.
On to the pics!
This one is "Born To Ride"
Front


Back

Inside


The other is faux patches from various bike rallies
Front


Close-up

The zipper has a lobster claw to hold on to keys in case they should happen to find their way out of the pocket

Inside. Has two pockets on one side and one pocket on the other

Thanks for looking Smiley
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / lots of pockets bags on: July 21, 2009 06:09:59 PM
I found this pattern called "Lots of Pockets" by KeykaLou and fell in love with it! It's pretty easy to follow so I've made quite a few...



This is my fav and the one I carry around everywhere. I really like this "Inked" fabric.
front: has two pants-style pockets in the top corners.

back

inside: has another pocket and as you can see, holds quite a bit of stuff.


thanks for looking Smiley
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Corduroy Purse on: July 13, 2009 06:55:36 PM
This bag actually started with a belt I found at the Senior Citizens Sale recently...I love those Sales!  Grin I used it for the strap of the purse and the little velcro flap.
I've found that corduroy is not the most agreeable fabric, but I got my way in the end!

The outside is Corduroy


The inside is a heavy upholstery-like fabric in a bright orange


Thanks for looking
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Camo Bag on: June 24, 2009 11:27:28 AM
I feel like I haven't been here in years! I forgot how much I love this place. Cheesy

My stepmother gave me about 4 yards of this fabric so I decided I might as well make something out of it. So I came up with this:


I added a zipper cuz things are always falling out of my bags


As you can see, it's big enough to carry my wallet, perfume, lipgloss, sunglasses, and small planner, and keys

Thanks for looking  Smiley
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / A new clutch! on: May 14, 2008 10:46:13 AM
This is a clutch I recently made. The floral fabric is sheer so you can kind of see the maroon lining on the inside....I think it makes the navy blue a little richer the more I look at it. And the teal is corduroy.

The front:


The inside:
