This is just gorgeous! Amazing satin stitch /jealous

On a side note - I purchased a sewing box at Joanns with this fabric as the top cover and was dying to know whose it was. Where did you find it? Thanks

They are so cute. I especially like the music note/skull one.

Your stuff is beyond amazing! I actually started stalking you on your blog just for your amigurumi.

Anyway, I was wondering how much did you increast the size of the bag from the tutorial?

I increased the height of every piece by 2 inches. Also, I increased the width of the side pieces (lining included) and the pockets by 2 inches. You have to also increase an inch on each side of the zipper so that it reaches across the bag.

I hope this makes sense.

Thanks for all the great comments everyone! I am really proud of how this one turned out.

Just a note, you can't really tell from the picture but the red fabric is actually a fine suede. Which works so well with the pleated bags if you give it a go.

So, I had a nice long weekend. My usual distraction was out of town, so I had to keep myself busy for once - crafting was involved.

Lookie at the purty new bag!!


I love it. I used this (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=178244.0) pattern. This is my second attempt as this tutorial, but I didn't include the zipper before. I also went a bit more light on pleating this time and increased the size. I wanted a more duffel bag sort of feel.

My cellphone fits perfectly in the handy pockets.

And the inside is nice & roomy. The lining and outside fabric (with the print) is actually brown and white...even though it seems a bit more black in the pictures (trust me - it is a very deep brown). If I do this pattern again I am going to add inside pockets.

What I'm wondering, is where did you find the apples are green tutorial please?

Here is the link to applesaregreen's original post (with pics of her stunning bags)

It says the tutorial is on page 10, but unfortunatly her pictures aren't working anymore. Someone hosted it for her; here is the link to that:

It is called receita-pleatness bag.doc

Thanks everyone! I really like how it turned out for my first try. I am almost done with my next one (which I included a zipper). Will post pictures as soon as I finish!

on a side note: YOU HAVE GRASS?! where i live everything's covered by a large fat layer of snow. it snowed the entire day today. by entire, i mean ENTIRE.

*sigh* i miss the sun

I am blessed to be in southern California. It was 86 degrees out there today...and super sunny.

kitschbitch - as soon as I got your package I knew that I wanted to use that fabric for a hook roll. I was worried there wasn't going to be enough, but it fit perfectly. Thanks again! I love them
