Cute!  Love teh fabric!  Did you really make all that iwth just one fat quater?  Or is that a couple of them?  I have fun picking out FQ's and finding fun things to make with them - they're so cheap and you can make awesome things with them, and you don't even have to stand in line to get your fabric cut! Cheesy

Totally cute!

And I agree - if you could post the pics instead of links, I think lots more people would see them - not everyone takes the time to click on the links . . . .

Great work!

Very cute!  Nice bags, headbands, everything!  Your sewing looks very neat and professional, and I really like all the fabrics!

Cool!  Great job!  I might have to try one for myself in the near future!

Thanks!

The wallets are surprisingly simple - there is a tutorial on here somewhere - I will try to find the link for you when I have a bit more time than right now (cookies in the oven . . . )

ETA: here is the link for the tutorial:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=190408.0

I altered it a bit so that there is only one of the tallest pockets in mine - takes 14.5" instead of about 21.5" and I think it's just as useful this way.  I also like adding the snap strap - can snap keys on it or snap it onto your belt loops or purse strap . . . Really quick and easy, too!  Have fun with it!

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:

Closed:




Open:




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.

You did a great job on the purse, wallets....and pictures!!!!  Are the wallets a single pocket thingy for cash?  I like the style and shape of the flap on the wallets.  Looking forward to seeing your other projects!

Thanks!  Grin By wallets, do you mean the first pic?  They are actually small clutches - a bit too big to be a wallet, IMO.  Yes, they are just a sinlge pocket folded over - I wish I had taken a pic of them open.  It took me a bit to figure out how to make them so that they would close properly and look good.  I got the basic idea from someone else's post on here, but I didn't bookmark it, so can't give them proper credit.  I'll see if the info I printed out from her post has her user name on it (if I can find what I printed out . . .  Embarrassed)

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!

Cute!  Love the girly John Deere fabric - where did she get it?
