21  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / A new wallet for me! on: August 29, 2010 04:56:29 PM
I've been using the long wallet I posted here about a year and a half ago (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=292617.msg3325538#msg3325538), and though it's still very much intact, it has become a bit dirty and I just can't be bothered washing it.  So the solution was to make a new one, of course!  Roll Eyes







I had some leftover fabric from the two fat quarters I used and found inspiration from Pink Penguin's patchwork zippered pouch. I didn't use her tutorial though because I am already used to making this pouch my own way.





Hope you like them!  Wink

How do you get the cardboard out of the center of the roll? Just pull?

Yes, you're right.  It comes off quite easily.

Thanks for the comments!

There are tissue box covers.  There are travel tissue holders.  Why not one for a toilet paper roll?


I used scraps of fabric for this project. It would have been a lot easier if I had just used a single piece of fabric instead of doing patchwork, but the end result is really pretty good, isn't it?


The top closes with a drawstring and the toilet paper is pulled through the hole.


The toilet paper is pulled from the center of the roll rather than from the outermost layer.  In order to do this, I had to remove the cardboard cylinder in the middle.


As always, the trickiest part was attaching the circle base.  The key here is using accurate measurements.  It's not really as hard as it seems.

Well, hope you all liked it!  Feedback is much appreciated!  Wink
24  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Denim Laptop Bag on: February 23, 2010 04:09:07 PM
So happy with this laptop bag I made for my daughter, not only because I think I did a pretty decent job, but because I used materials I already had on hand, including some I had salvaged from old stuff!  You might find the colour combination a little odd but those are the school colours (navy blue, maroon and yellow gold) and I wanted the bag to look like it was an official school bag.  Smiley


Sorry, I had to blur out the school logo for privacy reasons.  I got that embroidered logo from a worn out school uniform.


Close-up of patchwork stitch.  Saved the strap from a bag  I had already thrown out a long time ago.  Just added a denim strip to make it blend better with the bag.


Used pre-quilted fabric for the lining


View of the inside

The bag is super thick since aside from the pre-quilted lining, I lined the denim with fusible fleece. Had doubts my sewing machine could handle the thickness but luckily, it did.  Hopefully, that will be enough padded protection for the laptop!

Thanks for looking.

Hello Rauni,

That was fast!  Your iPod Touch case looks really well made.  Thanks for trying out my tutorial and posting photos here.  Wink

Hey all, I managed to sew another digital camera cozy.  Just wanted to share some of the photos I took of it.

I love this Hello Kitty fabric!




Cute ribbon button sewn over strap end to conceal ugly raw edge!


Hope you like it!  Roll Eyes

that is soooo cute! I love it!
I keep seeing camera cases around and they're all ugly and boring. I am so inspired by your cute quilted case of glory!
Do you mind sharing and telling me what fabric you have used? They are too adorable for words.
xoxo

I used Japanese fabrics which I bought from this Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/modes4u.  Thanks for asking!

Hello everyone!  Cheesy Have not posted here for sometime now and I'm real glad to be back!
 
I made a case for our digital camera.  Here are some photos I'd like to share:







I did not actually base the size of the case on our camera itself.  I did a quick search on the internet and compared the dimensions of top compact digital cameras currently on the market.  I then used the largest dimensions.  The case ended up being 4" tall, 2.5" wide and 1.25" deep. (That's how small digital cameras are these days!)  It is padded and quilted, closes with velcro and has a strap with a swivel hook so it can be easily carried around or hung from a bag or belt loop.

Hope you like it!  Please feel free to comment!

I would love to have the pdf file for this. Does anyone have it and like to share it with me? PLZZZZ
The PDF file is no longer available for free, in case you did not know.

I think it is not too much to ask of you to acknowledge my right to the PDF document.  Lots of people were able to download it for free and they are lucky.  But there are also those who have paid for the pattern and they deserve the respect as well.
