1351  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Octopus & Alice Cross body bags on: May 08, 2014 09:54:44 AM
 I got both fabrics off Etsy. The coordinating fabrics are from Jo Ann Fabrics.
 I really enjoy making purses even though I have never managed to make one for myself.  Tongue

 I made these two purses for recent swaps. The pattern is pretty simple but I had the hardest time understanding it at first. I was told it was written for quilters and I have never quilted so I found it really confusing. Also there was only one pattern piece and you had to measure everything else out yourself. That drove me bonkers. After I figured out the first one the second one went WAY quicker and was worlds less frustrating.
 The first one was for the IYP swap and it is a damask fabric with octopus on it. The patterns called for the fabric over the zipper and the fabric under the zipper to be different with different colored zippers on each side. I thought it looked a little classier with the same fabric above and below the zipper. One side has the cream zipper the other a matching blue. There are two pockets on the outside and then two additional zippered pockets out there. The inside had a pocket too.

I borrowed these pics from my partner, Luckdragon.

Blue zipper side

Front Pocket

Inside

 For this one I for the Fairy Tale swap and made the outside pockets a little taller to get more of the Alice in Wonderland fabric in. Both straps are adjustable and this one has the same colored zipper on both sides.

and this one is from Cryssoleil's posting too.


 My mom really liked them both an asked that I make her one for Mother's Day. She picked a beautiful batik fabric and I will post that one up when I get it done.
  Thanks for looking!

 Things are a little hectic right now but I should be able to comment on all the amazing posts tomorrow.

Battle/Challenge:  April - Now your cookin'
Team: wordy
Bonus Points: ---
Project Name: meat loaf casserole
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description:  I don't cook. if I have to cook dinner it is very basic food and always on a George Forman grill. It got boring. Chicken or pork chops with a side of instant mashed potatoes and corn/green beans depending on the day. Every day. I decided that I want to start making more casserole type dinners. Tonight was my first attempt. Got this recipe from the Campbell's soup site. It was actually really yummy. There was the meat and stuff at the bottom and that is a mashed potato concoction on top.  Tongue  Had to keep the mashed potatoes or my family would not have believed I made it.

 I partnered up with our gracious organizer, Luckdragon!!
 When we talked about partnering she mentioned making me this super fun fox scarf that she had made for the Raffle swap. It is SO cute. Even though I HATE the cold I can't wait for it to get chilly again so I can wear this!

 Then she surprised me with this beautiful Red Riding Hood embroidered necklace. It is even more gorgeous in person. I always wanted an embroidered necklace and now I have one - and it RRH!!! Even better!!!

 And last but not least she made me the most incredible hoop. I love Bill Murray. Love him. I have a cat named Venkman and my user name is a Ghostbusters reference so I obviously love him.  Tongue I never expected this. LOVE it!!!! It looks so great! You did such an amazing job Luckdragon! I love it!!!

 and here is the card she sent me with her reference picture. Amazing job. Truly fantastic!!!

 Thank you so much! I love everything and had a lot of fun with this swap!

 luvebuggy99 - I adore that Ariel figure. I think it is especially cute that she hangs in the tin. Looks like she is floating in water! Your Alice art work is fantastic. I have been wanting to try some ATB's. Yours are very cool! Like the Peter Pan theme.

 I would have a very hard time turning away from a book inspired swap but it would depend on timing and size. I have a couple projects for b-days and the such on my plate right now but books...? Who could resist?

 I am so glad you could find an alternative if you can't get your feedback in time Alittlemusthave. Feel free to post up on the thread like you are in the swap too. We would all love to ooh and ahh over what you made!
 And thanks Ludi! That was super sweet of you.  Cheesy
