101  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: Pocket Closure on: October 15, 2008 07:59:00 PM
You could try a button with a loop instead of a buttonhole.
102  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Experimenting with wallets on: October 15, 2008 07:33:43 PM
I have been experimenting with wallets for the last couple of days. I made three wallets for my sons. The first one is made from black vinyl fabric and a camo remnant which I bought at Joann's. The only problem was sewing through all the layers when making the credit card slots. The second one is made from black vinyl and rip stop nylon. It was much easier to sew. I used black Velcro as a closure for the coin pouch on both. I made the card slots horizontal instead of vertical on the second wallet which allowed for fewer layers to sew through. They want the wallets to close with Velcro also so back to the drawing board. I don't want to wreck the coin pouch. Any ideas?

Looks good.  Roll Eyes I usually top stitch my handles to make them look more finished. Another trick I learned from my local quilt shop is to add some plastic strapping material(the stuff that is wrapped around boxes when they are shipped) between the layers to make them more stiff. I used it on my Amy Butler tote http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=271399.msg3064138#msg3064138

Very cute. I love your fabric choices.  Grin
105  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tote made with Amy Butler Fabric on: September 30, 2008 09:51:02 PM
This is a tote that I designed myself and is made from some Amy Butler Daisy chain fabric that I recently purchased. I started off with a McCall's pattern then changed everything. The dimensions for the sides and bottom were wrong. I have added a magnetic snap, false bottom, strip along the top, and pockets.



Here is a picture of the inside of the bag.



Below is a penguin's gone wide tote tote I made after fixing the dimensions on the pattern.

108  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / 3 Zippered Pouches on: August 22, 2008 06:36:54 PM
Here are three zippered pouches I made today with tutorials from this site.



The pyramid bag came from this tutorial:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=22428.0





I need to do a little more finishing on the inside of this one. I have not figured out how to finish nicely like the others there are not many seams to leave open.


The three sided pouch came from this tutorial:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=176509.0
The candy pouch has the same dimensions as the tutorial. I just added the strap.





I made the second one larger to accommodate a 9 inch zipper. I also added straps to turn them into wristlets.




Let me know what you think.

I would take it as a compliment. I love the fancy stitching.
110  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My First Attempt at Messenger Bags on: August 19, 2008 09:48:58 PM
I just finished these 2  messenger bags. I used the following tutorial but made a few changes:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=11394.msg170241#msg170241

I reduced the size to 80 percent and added pockets and a zippered pocket. I got a little carried away with the straps. These bags would be good for basketball players.  Cheesy

Here is a picture of the first one:




Here is a picture of the inside:




Here is the second one:



Now the zippered pocket:



And the pockets:




Let me know what  you think.

Thanks
