1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Leather cut out bag and studded wallet on: January 04, 2014 03:04:37 PM

Hi there!
Here are to projects I made recently! I'm quite excited about these because they look okay. Smiley
They don't look like I made them.... more like I bought them.

I saw these clear clutches on the web, so I decided to incorporate that detail into a leather bag.
I wanted it to be a little modern so I decided to cut out a circle on the bag for the handle.
I wasn't so easy sewing leather, especially around the handle part and the zipper. The stitching is a little wobbly.

For the clear part I used some transparent vinyl fabric.



Since there was leftover fabric I decided to make a matching wallet.
I added the studs because it was a little plain, for my taste.

How do you like it?  Smiley

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Once upon a time, i made myself a skirt.... on: November 07, 2010 03:03:07 PM
I sewed a skirt. Yay for me!
It wasn't hard.  My first skirt  after a looong  time.
I just  sewed a looong rectangle of  fabric together, gathered the fabric block to fit my waste and added a strap all around long  enough to wrap. I think i'll add a zipper to it though, because there's this space there.
Overall  i  liked the result, pretty unbelievable for me.

Different ways to wear it^^

I got  a lot of compliments on it, i wore the way it loooks on the first  pic.
I made another one for  friend, too bad she took it before a could even take a shot.

What do you think of it?
