1  bag-o-mania in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by aquilka on: May 12, 2009 11:22:24 AM
So I finally got around posting all my bags...
I started making them some time ago (about 5 years Grin) and the most recent one is just a few weeks old.
So enjoy!^^
So, a little information on those bags:
1. The Caprisonne Tasche




This is the very first thing I ever sewed that didn't fall apart right away... and it still hastn't falles apart and it's been in use for approx. 5 years now, so I guess I can be pretty proud of my early sewing skills!^^
I'm also super proud of the very cool american Capri-Sun bags I have in there. Some very dear friends apparently thought of me and my crazy plan to make a bag out of Caprisonne bags while they were away on an exchange to Chicago!
The strap is pretty crumpled from when I turned it back around after sewing the Caprisonne bags to the lining, I would propably topstich the thing left sides facing each other if I were to make this bag again...

2. The polkadottet one




Made from my favourite IKEA fabric, the one with the crazy colorfull polkadotts. I still have about 2meters of it lying around and I don't know what to make of it, I don't want to waste it!
Anyway, this bag is the perfect size to hold my purse, keys, cellphone, a tiny book and a half liter bottle of water.
I made it to fit these things because I only had bags either too big or to smal to take with me when I went out for the night.
I love the pleats detail. I was inspired to do this by some tutorial on here, I'll look it up and post it here later on.

3. another IKEA bag



This was meant to be a bag for overnight stays and for going to the beach.
It has a waterproof compartment in there and zips shut.
It's a lot too wobbly, I sadly didn't think about how stiff (or rather NOT stiff) this thing was going to be before I made it and now I can't fix it without taking the whole thing apart.
But I still like it, it's a nice size and it looks really cool with all those circles.

4. the sewing bag





This was loosely based on a sewing bag I saw in one of my mom's magazines. And when she told me she had about 5 meters of this gorgeous off white fabric just lying around waiting to be used, I couldn#T contain my self.
And here it is. Yet another bag I don't really need but that looks just gorgeous for summertime.
I use a pillowcase from.. guess where, IKEA to line it and make the little detail round the outside.
I messed up a little, I don't know whether you can tell from the photos, but the tpo part is completely loopsided, about 7 cm on one side and 12cm on the other, but to hell with it, I'll just say it's the way it's supposed to be!^^

So, that was my bag-o-mania for now, hop you enjoyed. I would love some comments and I will surely post some more someday because even though I don't need any more bags I just can't stop thinking of new designs whenever I see any fabric lying around....^^

2  one white star in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by aquilka on: September 06, 2008 03:54:12 AM
So, I'm not really a painter, I'm more of a sewer, and yet my first post shoowing off any kind of thing I made is painting.
I painted with totally normal watercolors on a canvas I got at the 1-store, it's rather small (in some pictures you can see my hand for size reference). I made it for my dad, because ha said, he didn't want a present and so I said (as a joke at the time) that I'd paint him a picture as I used to do when I was still about 5 years old. Since I'm a bit too old now to make him a picture of stick people next to a not so much treelike tree, I made him something a bot more complicated.
So without further ado:
whole front view:

I also painted the sides of the canvas:




I hope the photos work and it's okay to post the images and not only links....tell me of I did that wrong and I'll change it.
