1  Travel in style! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ycallahan on: November 14, 2008 04:41:02 PM
In preparation for me and hubby's anniversary trip to San Francisco I wanted to make a fun bag to take on the trip. Not only that but the wonderful airline charges per checked bag, so I'm protesting and made a carry-on-friendly bag to carry all my goods. I was inspired by Logsio's travel bag, but I made mine bigger (maximum carry on size of 22x14x9), added more features too like outer zipper pockets and what not.

It took me forever to make, but it is a labor of love. Oh yeah, I also made a matching toiletry case. It's a good size too (8x6x5). Thanks for looking.  Cheesy

















Look at all the towels I could stuff in my bag!

2  Another diaper bag-I'm keeping this one for myself! heehee in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ycallahan on: August 11, 2008 12:01:31 PM
So I made a pattern loosely based on the amy butler weekender which I love so much. It's much smaller though and is just...different. I just turned it inside out so all the timtex is still all funky making it look lopsided. Also the inside features some pockets, a zippered compartment, and a key lanyard. It's also not as neon orangey as the picture shows (can't figure out my new camera).
I figure once my baby outgrows his diaper bag he can use it as a cool overnight bag when he's spending the night at grandma's or a friend.

Thanks for looking! Smiley

3  "Desk Deli" Lunch bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ycallahan on: June 02, 2008 07:24:20 PM
Got this pattern from quiltsillustrated and LUUUUV it! I call it my "Earth Bag". Don't the colors look really earthy?
Anyways this is a perfect lunch bag for anyone interested in it. It holds a ton of stuff and has LOTS of pockets on the inside for silverware, ice packs, energy bars, etc. Also has matching napkin, yay! What do you think?

4  Shag rug = Beach tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ycallahan on: May 01, 2008 04:23:51 PM
Thanks to Craftster I've been looking at everything in new ways and trying to find new uses for things. Well I picked up a $10 shag rug from Walmart recently and thought to turn it into a tote. It was kinda funky so I figured a beach/pool tote would be a safe bet.
The swimming frogs interior fabric I got at JoAnn's and was so happy it worked so well with the rug/bag. Me and my boys are ready for summer!! (PS- Out here in AZ it's already in the 90s  Wink )

5  Mini bowling ball bag (img hvy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ycallahan on: April 22, 2008 09:29:44 AM
So I am always trying to make the perfect diaperbag and came up with this bag. I just made a weekender so I drew a couple ideas from that bag combined with a bowling ball bag shape. It is small (12X11) so it could be a purse or a small diaper bag. I will use it for the latter. Next time I need to interface it since it's a little baggier than I like.
Thanks for looking  Smiley

I'm not doing the weekender bag for them just yet. I am taking a mini break so that I can sew some easier stuff. I'm actually working on a mini diaper bag. I made the pattern myself but it's funny because it's smaller than i thought. It looks really good so far though. I borrowed some ideas from the weekender bag though.

(i'm not in love with the fabric, but since this is a test pattern i used a remnant fabric)

7  My Amy Butler Weekender Travel Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ycallahan on: April 18, 2008 10:52:36 AM
I've been wanting to do one for so long after seeing the hundreds of beautiful ones here and on the web. So here's mine! I will concur with everyone else and say, yes, this bag was TOUGH! But SO worth it in the end! I can't wait to use it next month!
The outside is a medium weight fabric I got at a Joann's going out of business. And the inside is a wonderful black suede! I didn't add any extra pockets inside, but I will be making a toiletry bag to match.
Thanks for looking!  Grin

Da da da! I finally finished the outside of mine!! Good googily moogily that was tough!! Everything was actually not going too bad until I had to start sewing the BOTTOM and that whole insert thing. I think for the future I am just going to use one thing of timtex and baste it to the bottom like the main panels are. That was so ridiculous! And vjel, I think that I encountered the same thing you are probably referring to on your bottom. I just made sure to stuff my bag with towels for it's big photoshoot  Cheesy
Also I used the binder clips instead of pins and it was GREAT!!! I think I saved myself tons of pin pricks and bent pins. Well... enough of me, here's the bag!! Sooo loving it! Gonna start on the lining tonight. Who knows maybe I'll get ambitious and finish it. Okay, really now...here's the bag  Smiley



(The lighting really sucks, as well as me not taking good pictures. The pink on this bag is to die for though. It's a very hot pink)

Got the main part done. MAN this was difficult!! I'm dreading sewing it all together.

Oh and I'm officially in the club, I broke a needle on my machine putting this together!  Grin

laurel_branch your bag is cute! I wish you could've joined along with us, but thanks for showing your bag off. Would you mind showing your inside once you're done. I don't see too many interior shots. I like seeing all that stuff  Smiley

I'm taking a mini break to show my outer cut pieces. It didn't feel like it took long, but i guess it did. 1 hour to iron those creases and then mark and cut. I'm so leary of getting started on the faux suede. But alas it has to get done sooner or later.
