61  Wallets and another purse . . . in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Padester on: December 23, 2007 11:39:20 AM
Now that I know how to post pics, here are some more of my recent creations!

Some small cash/card wallets from the happyfrog (I think) tutorial:



And another version of the black bag with blue brocade lining (a friend of my MIL apparently really liked it, so I made another one):

And a little wallet to go with it:

The wallet does have three slots - just that the taller two are made of the lining fabric - the brocade is a bit thick to use and doesn't iron well - it melts.

There - that's pretty much what I have left - everything else has already been wrapped and/or sent for presents!

Thanks again!

Okay - here is a couple pics of the earlier version of the clutch - as you can see, it's still a work in progress:

And open:

The final version has snaps instead of velcro, and doesn't have piping all around - just on the flap part.  I also made the underside of the flap (the pink part on this one) shorter in the final versions, so there's a bit more room for the snap to go.

Oh, and on this one I tried to square the bottom a bit to give some more room inside.  I didn't really like it that way as much, so the others are all flat.

Okay - I have been very inspired by all of you talented Craftsters here, so I have been making bags and wallets like crazy recently.  Here are a few, just to see if I can post pics.  If it works, I'll have more photo posts to come!

So - here are some small clutches I made as Christmas gifts for several members of my hubby's family . . .

They all have contrasting lining and a little inside pocket, but I forgot to take photos of the inside before we sent them off.

Here is a bag I made for a friend:

And here's a little Christmas-y purse for one of my son's little friends from preschool.  (it has blck cat lining fabric - forgot to take pics of the lining . . . )

Okay - hope it works!

Any comments/critiques, etc are welcome!
