2  First attempt at snaps, piping, a zipper, a lining and button hole making!! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by space.case.sara on: February 28, 2008 11:06:20 AM
Hi guys!

I'm so proud of my latest creation! It was my first try at a bag and i love the results. Basically, i wasn't using my backpack in school because the fabric on the back was making all my pretty clothe pill, so i decided to make my own! The other problem that i had with my ex-bag was that everything didn't have a place! It would all fall to the bottom of my back and if i wanted to get at anything i would have to dump everything out and that was a real pain! So i decided that i had to have a specially sized pocket for everything that i own! I Well anyway, I really love toile and so when i went to Fabricville and found this beautiful but expensive toile i new i had to have it! ( i got the lining fabric at a really great price!) anyway, by the time i got to the zipper stage i didn't have the slightest idea how to put it in with the lining, so i went to the seamstress that my mom has been going to for 28 years (she's like a grandma to me) and she explained to me how to install it (after she offered to do it for me, with i quickly refused because i wanted to do it all by myself!) so....here it goes!

Oh and BTW, i took these pictures in the library with my web cam....i had to be discreet, sorry!

Okay so this is the over all bag with the outside pocket (with snap!!!  Grin)


My first attempt at piping!



Zipper and straps:


Lining with pockets that are specially sized for every item i have:



I also make a laptop case that matches: first automatic button hole!

side two of case!

Thanks so much for looking

My newest poppet, Mizuki, a Harajuku girl.

Her thread is here:

I absolutely adore her! But she made me chuckle because her ears kinda have to characteristic of someone with downs syndrome....( really don't mean that in an offensive way!! I live in a medical family, so I kinda spot things like that....she really is cute!)

4  T-Shirt for the Spice Girls Concert!! WIP (almost done!) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by space.case.sara on: January 07, 2008 09:30:35 PM
Hi! Well, I was so excited about how this came out, I couldn't wait until it was done to show it off (who can?) It's basically 5 dresses that represent each spice girl! The only thing that's missing on the front is Ginger's little black undies (because they always showed whens she wore that dress) and on the back I'm going to write SPICE in the same fabric as the pink dress (Baby Spice)




This is what I originally had planned, but Sporty and Scary got cut off when I tried the shirt on


This is the final placement of all of the dresses.

From left to right (top) is Ginger, Baby and Posh (bottom) Scary and Sporty!

oh my gosh, I hate to gloat but I'm just so proud! It's so cute! (It took forever!! they are all sewn on, not glued!)
