11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pretty bag with loads of pockets (Lots of picutes) on: September 08, 2010 12:16:53 AM

I made this bag from Amy Butler fabric in the Love series.  It is interlined with stiff interlining (pelmet-grade - just a bit thinner than timtex)  I reinforced the base with plastic grid and added gold coloured feet.  The bag has loads of pockets.  4 slip pockets (2 on each side) one zippered internal pocket and a pocket for my mobile at the end of the bag. its got a zipper closure across the top of the bag and two handles in matching fabric.  I also added a gold coloured chain for a shoulder strap.   There's more on my blog http://tiny.cc/6z5vc





12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Oilcloth Handbag/Purse on: May 31, 2010 02:25:26 AM
I made this new wipe clean bag fom oilcloth.  I quilted the front and back.  I think it looks a bit too much like a wash bag but I am still going to use it!   Its a handy size and I added plenty of internal pockets.  The lining is made from cotton 70's single bed sheet.  Pretty eh?



13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Luggage tags on: April 24, 2010 06:54:43 AM
I have just completed some luggage tags.  Whilst not a bag stictly speaking, this seems the most appropriate section to list under.  They were quick and easy to make and the clear vinyl was from old packaging.  (Never throw away stuff that might be useful)
14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Terrier Bag on: April 13, 2010 12:38:35 AM
I've just finished this bag.  It is in furnishing weight linen fabric, white background with colourful terrier dogs all over it.  I love this fabric!  The bag is a boxy shape with a zippered closure, one external pocket and an adjustable strap to go from handbag to shoulder bag.  The fabric also comes in oil cloth so I made a matching make up bag and also made the bottom of the bag out of oilcloth.   I interlined the bag with timtex and put metal feet on the bottom.  It is lined in Amy Butler fabric in dark pink and duck egg blue.  I put one internal zippered pocket, two internal slip pockets and a pocket for my mobile phone.  Its very roomy, great for days out.

I made just one of these and swore I'd never make another.  Congratulations for making 4!  Lets hope your friends enjoy the bags, but also realize they are a labour of love.
16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / The Ultimate Wallet! *Lots of photos* on: March 08, 2010 08:44:05 AM




I call this the Ultimate Wallet because it has a separate proper compartment for notes, card pockets, extra roomy pockets and a zippered coin compatment.  It was tricky to work out but pretty easy to sew.  When folded it only measures 4.5 by 4.5 inches.  So it is compact.  I used a velcro fastening.  You can use up you small scraps because it it so small.  If you want to make on you can get a tutorial from my blog:

If the catch comes undone the chain will stop it falling off my wrist.  What size crimp beads do you use?

Thank you for this tip.  Very helpful.  I'll give crimp beads a go.  I've got a crimp tool.

I've just started making my own jewellery.  I've been learning from books - no proper lessons.  I could really do with some.  I've made a number of earrings and a bracelet I am pleased with. 



I'd like to know if there is a knack to getting the final knot really tight so the beads don't move and show a little length of beading string.  I found that the hardest part to do.  I used cullotes (end covers) to finish the stringing and hide the knots but it took me forever to get the knot right.  If you've got any suggestions I'd love to hear them.
Also how to close the prongs over the stone more neatly.  I used pliers but I couldn't get them to match up.  You can see what I mean in the photo.
Thanks, Christine
