I love all of the different patterns and colors! Seems like everything is color-organized. ^^;

I also like how you used the different fabrics at the top to attach it to the bar.
And the Cheez-It box. It wanted to be a camera hog.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tablet cover on: September 14, 2008 04:51:51 PM
I have a tablet, which is a lot like a mouse, but it uses a pen.
I hate carrying it around, because it gets scratched up easily, so I decided to make a cover to protect it.  Smiley
My first time sewing a button hole, yay!

Outside:


Close up of fabric, button, and my craptastic stitching:


Inside (I've sewn batting to the lining fabric to cushion it a bit):


Tablet and the Cover:


Its a little snug, so I might let the sides out a bit, but it works for now. I also want to use a little strip of fabric to keep the cord together.

I personally like black, pink, and mint green together  Grin

Ah, I really like this fabric, and I'm typically not extremely fond of black and white prints.
I should try my hand at making one of those slouch bags..

Thanks guys!
I felt kind of bad cutting up those pair of jeans cause I really did like them a lot. The only thing was that they were a size 16, and I'm.. a couple sizes bigger than that.. lol

Who hasn't made one of these yet?

Ha, anyway..
Using Threadbanger's tutorial on how to make a jean purse (http://www.threadbanger.com/episode/THR_20070914), I figured that since I recently got a few trash bags full of clothes from someone my dad worked with (I got rid of all the stuff that didn't fit me long before I started crafting.. darn it), I'd take a pair of jeans that didn't fit me and turn it into a messenger bag (I love them so..).

I wish I took before pictures.. crud
Oh well. Here's the end result Grin

The front/flap:


The inside:


The back:


The big pocket:


The strap:



And the good thing about making a jean purse? It already comes with pockets!
I really like the stitching on the strap, and I am in love with the purple fabric. It has writing on it, but I have no idea what it says ^^;;
I put iron-ons to make it more "customized," but it's.. eh.

I even wanted to put a "hidden pocket" behind the snaps, but I made the mistake of telling my dad that, and his exact reaction was "Ahhhhh, no."
XD
I'm pretty happy with it though, even if it is a little small.


Wow. Long post. Sorry 'bout that, but thanks for looking!

The green on the handles goes really nicely with the brown on the outside.

And now they're all done! yay!
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: One more placemat purse (img HEAVY) on: December 14, 2007 08:21:50 PM
Aw, I'm loving those handles! And I like the contrast between the puppy print and the red/maroon-ish place mat on the outside.

If my mom crocheted a lot I would totally make her one.
Awesome job as usual.

Oh yeah.. bags are way addicting. I've already got plans to make more. haha

Yeah, I put the magnetic snaps too low, so now if I put a folder in it I can't really connect the snaps.
And the zipper is all wonky. lol

Thanks for the comments guys! ^_^
