2  3 more bags. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by cindygert on: October 28, 2009 03:49:58 PM


This one is my newest delight.  I love the little butterfly.  I dont know if you can see the curly q in green showing the butterfly buzzing around.





I would like to know what you all think about the dragon fly.  I may be trying the 80 bags in a month again.  I have 2 new stores that are carrying my bags.  Yippee!!

Thanks everyone.

Here is a picture of the lady that bought it.



She might be able to fit her whole wardrobe in it.....smile.  It is definately a weekender bag.  I did not actually measure it because I never put it on Etsy.  It is definately THE largest bag I have ever made.  I even put the gold feet on the bottom of it.

Also...notice the total cuteness of SoBo Style store.  If you are in the Clintonville, Ohio area I beg you to get down there and see her store.  She has exactly what your looking for (even if you did not know you were looking for it....smile).

4  Weekender Dog on Ski's in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by cindygert on: October 25, 2009 11:39:51 AM


This is a weekender bag that I wanted to keep.  It was HUGE.  I have been working with sweaters for 4 almost 5 years....I have over 600 sweaters and this is the only one of its kind that I have found.  I am always looking for ones with animals on them.  I did find one with a puppy in a boot and when I got home I noticed on the back it has 2 puppies inside the other boot.  Cant wait to make that one!!!!

5  Dragon fly and turtles my new faves!! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by cindygert on: October 13, 2009 06:30:11 AM
My new dragon fly bag.  Actually my husband suggested this and we collaborated on it.  I love it when my family gets involved with my bags.  This bag is fairly large.  I would say this is the "everthing but the kitchen sink" or the very light overnight. (Hey, that kind of rhymes)





The strap on this bag is an extra large man belt.  It is a 56 I think.  The inside is a blue commercial grade upholstery fabric.  I will try to get a picture of that too.

The turtles my oldest son suggested.  I love these little turtles.  Must make more.  The picture is terrible.  This is a huge bag.  It would be good for a diaper bag or an overnighter.

8  The Ultimate Bomber purse (I added 2 more bags on page 2...) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by cindygert on: September 27, 2009 11:16:13 AM
My new purse made out of a bomber jacket.  Love this bag!!!  My neighbor came over with her husband's bomber jacket that met its demise at the hands of an interior painter.  It was in a closet with louvered doors....they did not empty the closet so this got painted through the slats.

9  cindygert is back in the saddle again in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by cindygert on: September 13, 2009 07:59:36 PM
I feel like it has been forever since I have been on here.  I see lots of great crafting going on here.

I am really excited about the fall getting here and making more bags.  I have 50 currently waiting to get to a craft show in the Columbus Oh area on October 3 at SoBo Style in Clintonville.  I have never had this many done at one time before.

Here are several of my sweater bags.  I may be able to post more.








My newest endeavor...all leather.  I hope to have several more of these done in the next two weeks.



Let me know what you think.  I love to hear everyones comments.

10  Re: This bag started as a "weekender" that turned into a "I'm movin' in" bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by cindygert on: January 06, 2009 05:09:31 PM
Wow what a great surprise.  Lots of comments, I love each of them.  Thanks!!
Those are super cutey patootie owls!

Thanks!!  I like your way of spelling patootie better than my way.
I Love your bag and your creativity.
The title you wrote for this cracked me up. Cool

Just one little question for ya'.
Do you think that little niece will be able to carry it once she gets it full of 'stuff'?

Both the gal and your bag are adorable!

I did ask her several times if she would really use the bag.  She goes to college and she travels alot back to her house so she will be able to put all of her stuff in it to transport....and more.  She is a dear sweetheart of a girl.  Thanks!!

Freakin beautiful  Shocked This bag is amazing. 

Thank you thank you!!
it looks so soft and warm. I have an ugly xmas sweater that I may have to turn into one of these Smiley

It seems to me the uglier the sweater, the cuter the bag.  I dont know why.....same goes for belts.  The more worn the better I like them.
You really created you own handbag. Your bag is a concept i want to hug closer.

Your amazing!
Thanks.  It really kept me warm while I was making it.
Interesting bag ! In the good way! And the owls are just in place there.How did you do them? Did you knit them ? Or they are part of another sweater? Grin
The owls came from another part of the sweater.  Then I cut them out and sewed them on.  Thanks for your comment.



There's a tutorial for these? .. yay! I'm looking for it now.  I have a stash of pure wool sweaters, that I am saving for a large felted throw, but they certainly are few and far between in thrift stores - I'm pretty sure I've never found a 3X.  That was super lucky and you made great use of it!

Do you have a link to the tute?  I'm having difficulty finding it.

I have a tutorial on here for sweater bags.  Not this exact bag but.  It is actually  linked to my website because there are about 60 pictures that would have taken me forever to upload to here.

I may have to put a tutorial on how to make a throw too


I made this for my son's teacher for Christmas this year.  It turned out better than I thought it would.  I asked the teacher to list 40 of her favorite things.  Then I let the kids decorate each square.  They had more fun with the straight pins than anything else.  She loved it.
