11  The Phoebe Bag's big sister, Ruby in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Eowynt on: April 15, 2013 08:44:54 AM
I LOVE the Phoebe bag (see: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=415264.0#axzz2QXx6Jzto , http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=418643.msg4955389#msg4955389 ) . . . but did you know that Artsy Crafty Babe had a bigger version, named the "Ruby."  I didn't either. . . until now.  The Ruby is not only bigger, but it includes two variations. It is a big bag and uses a lot of fabric. . .  I usually use smallish bags, and I usually buy small pieces of fabric.  What's a girl to do?  Well I cut up my old couch cover (It had worn thin in the middle, but the sides were still in great shape), and I came up with:
.  
I love the texture of the fabric - it looks great without any embellishment.  For the inside, I used left over fabric from a quilt I made:
.  
The pocket is made from the rounded part of the lining that I cut out.  

Watcha think?

12  Black, Grey, Yellow Paisley gift set in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Eowynt on: April 02, 2013 04:45:04 PM
I've been busy making presents for a special friend who does everything for everyone else.  She loves this fabric set (and so do I). 

First, a reusable grocery bag:


Second, a medium sized tote:

Third, an eyeglass case and small clutch:


I still have more fabric, so I may make more - what do you think?

I made another Michelle's Patterns pattern (that is a mouthful), the reusable grocery pattern.

It is a floppy bag, just like the plastic ones it is designed to replace, so it is hard to photograph.  I just used it at Trader Joe's, so happy day.

15  Michelle makes the cutest patterns - clutch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Eowynt on: February 01, 2013 10:05:43 AM
I recently purchased a bunch of patterns from Michelle Patterns (formerly, Keyka Lou), and I am in love.  They are SO cute and fun to make.

This first one is her curvy clutch pattern.  I made mine in the small size.  I will be making the other sizes soon.


This wristlet is called a camera bag. . .  I am currently using it for my phone, but it could hold a variety of things, just not all at once.


I would be sewing more right now, but I have to clean up for company. . .

16  Eyeglass cases - I've gone a bit nuts in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Eowynt on: January 08, 2013 07:33:15 AM
I have gotten addicted making these eyeglass cases. They are quick, easy, and fun to make. . .  and cute.  I am a sucker for cute. The first one is from Sue Kim's Book:


The rest of these are modifications of other patterns, so they are kinda original. . .

C&C welcome!!

17  Creepy carnival t-shirt becomes a new bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Eowynt on: January 04, 2013 06:51:40 AM
I am in love with the Phoebe bag  (free at: http://artsycraftybabe.typepad.com/tutorials/phoebe_bag.pdf ) AND I love re-purposing old clothes.  This time I used a Creepy Carnival t-shirt from Shirt Woot.com.
The color is WAY off in the picture, but you can see the wavy, vine-like quilting at least.

I quilted the back to look like cut wood.  Again, the color is way off.

The color is more accurate in this picture.
It was lots of fun to make.

18  Love Bug Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by Eowynt on: November 09, 2012 09:05:08 AM
Yeah, I know it isn't Valentine's Day, but I finally finished my Love Bug Quilt, and I am too happy and too impatient to wait to share.

Each block is 5" square.  The blocks came from The New Quilting & Patchwork Dictionary by Rhoda Ochser Goldberg - a book I picked up in 1989 or so, before I made my first quilt. I just fell in love with those little insects.
I machine pieced, hand quilted it (finished while watching the tele last night).  Here are some close-ups of the the individual bugs:

They aren't perfect (some of the points got cut off) and I wish I had come up with a better border idea than just put on binding. . .  but I still like it. A lot.

19  Upcycled jeans -> Phoebe purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Eowynt on: October 09, 2012 08:55:10 AM
Well, I cut apart a worn out pair of jeans, bought a set of discount sheets with a great giraffe print, went through my patterns. . .  and came up with this:

I used the Phoebe pattern (free at: http://artsycraftybabe.typepad.com/tutorials/phoebe_bag.pdf - LOVE the pattern, LOVE the free part, too.)
For the curious, here are the back and interior:



Now I need to talk more people into giving me their  worn out clothes!!

20  Quilted clutches in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Eowynt on: September 27, 2012 10:11:59 AM
I have been busy using up scraps to make purses, wallet, and clutches.  The first uses some of my scraps from the front of my skull quilt ( http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=413791.0 )



and the second uses scraps from the back:




These were lots of fun to make.

C&C welcome
