1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / wisdom teeth? lined zipper pouches! on: February 27, 2008 08:59:24 AM
i had my wisdom teeth out last week and during recovery time, i decided to make some lined zipper pouches with extra fabric i had lying around.  they came out cute!

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / how do i make a bag this shape? on: November 23, 2007 06:41:25 AM
i love the roundedness of this craftster's bag:

but i don't know how to achieve the same shape myself.  i see that there is darting of some sort on the bottom.  can anyone help me out?
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / my tiffany-inspired bag 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 love how feminine it looks!

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

snap closure!

fully lined in this pretty swirly fabric

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / tampon holder with tutorial! on: November 17, 2007 12:43:13 PM
EDIT: Tutorial added! 
[Tutorial 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.

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / maggiebag (IMAGE HEAVY!) 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 love.  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 pattern.  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.

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / gift for a musical sister (a-line jordy again!) on: November 07, 2007 04:53:53 PM
i made another one tonight; my little sister is in love with music.  she plays the flute and wants to be a professional musician when she grows up.  so when i saw this beautiful fabric, i knew i needed to make her a christmas gift out of it!

the front-ish view:


i did a velcro closing for the flap; i used a white strip up top and a black strip on the body.

detail view:

i love covering buttons to match!

just a few i've made lately...

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Chocolate Sprinkles bag! (A-line flap Jordy) on: November 04, 2007 07:46:38 AM
This is the first purse I've really put any work into, and I like how it came out!  It's made with a chocolatey-brown corduroy and lined with a pink cotton fabric that reminds me of sprinkles.  Yum!

I made the strap longer so that it can comfortably hang over my shoulder.

Here it is with its mouth open...it's fully lined, the black inside is my wallet!

I covered two buttons with the liner fabric and attached one to each end of the strap for a bit of color.

I'd love to know what you think!
