Haha, just kidding. I know you guys are probably tired of seeing this fabric by now, but I am so in love with this bag that I had to share.
I promised myself that I wouldn't make any more bags, but I needed the perfect one to take to school. It had to be big enough for all of my stuff and perfectly tailored to my needs. So, I made it with the little bit of the kokka trefle fabric I had left.
I love huge bags. The bottom is squared off and reinforced with extra interfacing. I also stitched the handles down like six times, so hopefully they won't go anywhere.
Here is the inside. It is a little hard to see, but I made pockets near the bottom of the bag custom fitted to hold my calculators, lab glasses, and pens and pencils. The pockets for my calculators and lab glasses are padded with layers of fleece so that they won't get crushed. At the very top you can kinda see (if you look really hard) the shirred loop that I put in to hold my water bottle upright.
And just for fun, here it is modeled as a necklace.
I have started making inchies and getting more familiar with papercrafts recently. Alot of people find these really cool vintage photographs for things like inchies, ATC's and all sorts of altered art. Like these for example:
Are these stickers or something? I thought maybe they are just from the internet, but I'm not quite sure what to enter into the search bar. "Vintage photos for papercrafts" and other variations didn't give me the desired results. I understand if you don't want to give up your trade secrets, but even a little nudge in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
Hello everyone! I've made a few bags since I've joined Craftster, but I usually don't post them because they are just plain and simple. However, I am so proud of this one and the fabric is so cute that I wanted to share.
I came across this fabric and almost died at how cute it was.
I recently saw an Oral-B commercial where the dentist folded a paper tooth. I have searched the internet for pictures of the tooth, the commercial, or directions on how to make an origami tooth, but I just can't find it.
If any origami experts out there have seen the ommercial, do you know how to fold one?
So, I know that I am not the only random and spontaneous person on Craftster... lol
I think it would be cool to do a "random" swap, where you would fill out a questionaire asking you about all sorts of tidbits of information (like, your favorite yogurt flavor, or your favorite sharpie ink color). Then your partner, using the info gathered from the questionaire and some stalking (lol), create some crafts embracing your...randomness.
Am I just crazy, or is this something that someone would like to organize?
I bought some bleeding art tissue at my university bookstore because it seems like it has potential for my craft stash (lol), but I don't really know how to use it. It looks simple...wet it, and color comes out of it, but I just tried to make some Christmas cards, and they are not turning out that great.
Can anyone tell me the proper way to use it, or some pointers, or some projects that I can use it for?
Hi Guys! I am still in my first swap, but I have an idea that I think is pretty good (or maybe not... lol)
I have A BUNCH of fabric scraps, yarn ends, and just random craft supplies that I don't want to throw away, and I'm sure that other people do too. So, how about, rather then just letting them sit there, we do a "stash-buster" swap, where one person crafts objects for another person (based on likes/dislikes, desired colors, etc.) ENTIRELY from your stash!! Like a swap specifically designed to reduce the amount of random craft supplies.
That way, you have an excuse to go get MORE craft supplies, and you also get something cool and creative that you can actually use!
Is this a good idea? Or maybe there is already a swap like this?
This is my first post on Craftster (although I have been a member for a while now haha). I found this pattern for a reusable grocery bag on burdastyle:http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/show/261. But I made one that is too pretty for groceries!
