1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Purple, Purple Bag on: May 18, 2010 12:14:37 PM
I am trying to NOT buy anything new and get stuff from my stash of fabric.  I obviously have a lot of purple, and that's kinda weird for someone who isn't really "into" purple!  ha!  Anyhow, this is what came out of it Smiley Thanks for looking!





I even had a purple button, again that's just weird, LOL
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Retro Curtain Bag on: April 24, 2010 06:50:24 AM
This is the 2nd bag I've made using old retro curtain fabric.  I wish I came across more fabric like this in my thrift store/garage sale shopping!  This particular fabric is so unique that I could hardly wait to make something out of it.  It's a heavyweight fabric.  When I got the bag together, (a basic box shaped style) I noticed a stain in the fabric.  I had washed it beforehand, but it wasn't super noticeable until I sewed it all together! Argh!  Anyhow, I cut out the small stain  where the bag makes a U-shape and was hoping it wouldn't screw it up.  It worked out well though and I made a flap closure.  Whatcha' think and thanks for looking!




3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Simple Grey Bag on: October 21, 2009 02:04:49 PM
Hi all, been awhile since I've posted in here.  Anyhow, I finished this bag today and it came out so neat.  I have several yards of suit fabric and paired it up with a pretty flowery blue fabric.  It brings out the light blue thread in the suit fabric.  Whatcha' think? 




matching key fob, and you can see the suit fabric up close


padded pockets inside, and zippered pocket too, I finally figured that zipper stuff out!  woo hoo, LOL

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Spring Green Polka Dot bag on: March 21, 2009 01:53:50 PM


So, I have a "thing" for polka dots, and came across this fabric not long ago.  The other fabrics went along with it perfectly.  There are two large pockets on the inside, and the bag has a button closure.  Really simple medium sized bag, whatcha' think?
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bag made for holding a Cross stitch frame on: March 10, 2009 07:46:20 AM
I made this for a friend wanting a bag to hold her cross stitch frame.  She says it fits perfectly Smiley  Whatcha' think?  I just love this fabric, it's "Absolutely Cotton" brand, they have come out with some really neat fabric lately!

Thanks for looking! Smiley

I really enjoyed making this bag!  There is one large slanted pocket on each side, real handy!  Whatcha' think?
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Busy as a Bee Bag and matching Key Fob on: November 13, 2008 10:39:14 AM
This is a tea towel, I thought it was the cutest!  Whatcha think?






8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Botanical Pop Bag with matching Key Fob on: November 10, 2008 01:11:06 PM



Back with pocket


inner with four pockets


close up of button closure


sides have a pocket


Made a matching key fob, I've been so excited about trying my hand at these fobs!  They are fun and I love how they go around the wrist!
The fabric is Botanical Pop by Jackie Shapiro, I just love the colors! 

I had been making curtains for our camper one day and HAD to make something purty in order to keep my sanity!  The bag came out bigger than I intended and I came real close to making it smaller.   

Whatcha' think?
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pink and Black Diaper Bag on: August 18, 2008 08:02:17 PM
My cousin requested a diaper bag made in pink and black, so I gladly obliged Smiley  She just loves it!!!!  It is from a pattern, Bella Nonna, Happy Bag.  I made a few changes to it.  The directions were a bit "off", so if you ever come across that pattern, you'll know ahead of time Wink

I quilted it, I did the "stitch in the ditch" thing and I've never done that before.  So, it has the top layer, batting, muslin and the inner fabric.  The bottom is quilted too. 

Whatcha' think?




10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / A bag made out of Two Cloth Napkins! on: June 25, 2008 04:12:16 PM
Yep, two cloth napkins!  I saw them at Target today and had to have them.  I couldn't see myself wiping my mouth with them, so my the "bag vision" came to me, ha, ha!

Whatcha' think?
