While browsing Craftster I saw this bag by mewyam http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=210511.0 and since my kids were watching they just wanted me to make one for each of them modeled after their guitar hero guitar---they have more faith in my skills than I do because I have never made a bag, purse or anything and I am just getting back to sewing and crafting after many years hiatus---but I went for it anyway cause with kids you can totally mess up and they still love it and you, great motivators they are for the ego...anyway here they are:
This one is spidey fabric, with blue satin stuff lining, the white bar is supposed to be the Wii controller (bad flash pics) that you stick into the guitar to play the game(for those not familiar) but I traced the actual guitar to come up with the pattern--the buttons are some vintage ones I had laying around and finally have a project to use them on although they are a bit heavy for the fabric they are just about the same size and shininess as the ones on the real guitar so I had to use them I think I will do a tighter stitch to get them to lay flat--I will try to take some better pics cause you can not see the wii controls that I stitched onto this
Here is the pink one, wish she had picked another color cause the contrast did not turn out well against the details...and the whammy bar is not the size I wanted but she wanted it that way...and in this one you can see the Wii remote details, that was fun...She wanted a zipper on the inside of her bag but I think the zipper made it bunch at the top, she plans on using this to take her dolly dressing supplies & accessories to her friend's house and she did not want stuff to fall out, should have known not to make a bag for the critical purse maven who at her tender age of 7 already has a wall in her closet dedicated to purses with a nail for each one
It was a fun project overall, great sewing practice and a good break from the swap stuff I have been working on....thanks mewyam for the good inspiration! Enjoy!
Anyone know how to make the pictures bigger?
