AH!  that makes SO much more sense!  i think the only thing confusing me now is the lines:

"Do not sew the seam opposite of where the hood is attached. In fact, you probably will not be able to sew this section because the hood will certainly interfere. This is the part where you will pull out the scarf ends and hood."

i drew a quick picture...



i think one of those is the right way to sew it, but which one?  or am i completely off base?  Smiley

6  my tiffany-inspired bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by maggiedotcom on: November 22, 2007 08:58:33 AM
i was so pleased with how this tote came out that i decided to make another one similar.  i am a huge chocolate brown lover, and this time i decided to pair it up with a tiffany blue. instead of making the handles from felt, i used martha stewart grosgrain ribbon for the straps and i eat how feminine it looks!


the outer fabric is 100% wool felt!  so nice but expensive.


snap closure!


fully lined in this pretty swirly fabric


voila!

7  tampon holder with attack! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by maggiedotcom on: November 17, 2007 12:43:13 PM
EDIT: attack added! 
[attack removed at the request of the original creator of this project. Sorry! -- the craftster admin (leah)]

so i absolutely adore NOCHI's purses, bags, etc...but i especially enjoy her "pursonal" pouches for holding monthly supplies.

i do not, however, have the funds for such a purchase, so i decided to make my own!  i wanted one with a bit more subdued fabric on the outside so as to not warrant undue attention, so i used some scrap tweed i had around.






here you can see it's kept closed with a magnetic snap.


mine's not as neat as the originals, but it works!  instead of keeping panty liners/pads on the left side as suggested, i'm keeping a little tin with tylenol in the big pocket.


closeup of my cute scrap fabric!

this was a fun little project.

9  maggiebag (IMAGE HEAVY!) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by maggiedotcom on: November 10, 2007 01:56:55 PM
i have been making a million bags for everyone else so i decided to make one for me.  i was at the fabric store and stumbled upon this beautiful, perfect shade of green felt and fell in eat.  thus, maggiebag!

i am a teacher and so i figured i could use a nice big bag to bring my things to school.




closeup of the supercute ribbon i found!


i used a snap closure for the first time.


the lining is a happy red floral-ish pile of flesh.  i didn't want to get too christmas-y with red and green but i think this works.


it looks so happy when it's full!


my cat doesn't know what to think.
