1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / 3 clutches i've made on: December 13, 2007 03:36:37 PM

hey, here's three clutches I've made, one ages ago one yesterday and one in between.. hope you like them =D

BAG NUMBER ONE (ages ago)  The little bag
this bag i made with about $2.50 of material didn't even use half of it, i bought a fat quarter and a reel of ribbon cost me $1. didn't even use a sixth of it..so here's a bag that cost be under $5. (oh yeah I'm Australian so thats Australian dollars)

BAG NUMBER TWO (yesterday) Black, Blue and White
Um, not sure what to say about this one so let the pictures talk:
had to hold down flap, i hadn't pressed it with the iron yet, so it just springs back up =0
Sorry for fuzziness of next picture, i know its really annoying but camera battery was going flat, and just needed to get photos done of it, here it is filled. the bottom pocket has a zip,
bag two and three actually have no way of holding them closed, they just fold up, but i haven't had a problem with it, I've been using the blue and white striped one, and found it easy to use..maybe its a bit floppy so I'll keep that in mind when making more,.


BAG NUMBER THREE (sometime in between) Blue and white stripe..i love this colour
I made this from scratch i had an idea of how to do this, i had been looking on here at different bag, here's a link to one that is really good, i found this after making the bag but it looks really easy, my next make is going to be using this guide:


that's all the photos...just wondering i might be joining my cousin at a market stall, just thinking about it, how much would you want to pay for them...
i'm not sure if they are really, in tip top condition to be sold, they're fine for me, i don't mind my little mistakes...they are nothing major, but some things can be neater..my main goal when making a bag is having one at the end of it that was cheap to make, and is functional and hopefully it looks ok, which mine do, but i have a friend who has made one or two and her's just by looking at it are so much precise then mine, mind you she has been sewing lomger, way longer and yeah she's better at it then me, so please what would you pay, i'd never ask for then $20, not even $15 for them, depends how much they cost to make and how much effort went into making them...

thanks anyway i'd love to hear what you had to say  Grin

do you have any ideas?
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / my first dress...a pinafore on: September 12, 2007 04:23:18 PM
hey everybody, this is my first post, not even sure this is where you post them but here goes... i have got back into sewing again, i made a bag, then 2 for my friends then a  clutch then a bag for my friend's mum, then after trying to find a nice pinafore that doesn't make me look pregnant i decided to make one, (i think Americans call them jumpers???)  so here it is, only cost $12 something:

really bad photo, i took it with my phone, anyway i bought 2 metres of white material and 1\2 metre of blue stripey, it was enough with both materials, i had a 12cm zipper in the side, note: a longer zipper would be better. and i bought 5 white buttons and used them on the straps:

and next time i think i'll make it a wincy bit roomier and the top white piece a little bit longer

and i even made a lining for it, it was a bit see through.. now i have a new dress i want to try and make...its actually from here:

vintage floral fabric dresses (img heavy)

well i hope you enjoy it, and sorry again bout the pics.
