1  Re: Embellished Lined Zipper Pouch Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by greenevie on: November 09, 2005 08:21:49 PM
I'm a little slow on the posting -- I got my pouches from toomuchrock yesterday, which was awesome because yesterday was my birthday! I did all my celebrating last weekend, so it was nice to drag it out a little bit more and keep getting stuff Smiley
First off, I'm a bit of a jerk because we decided on 3 pouches, then I went crazy and forgot and only made 2. I'm making another one to send out to toomuchrock soon! Here are the pictures of the pouches she sent me, front and back:

The fun thing is that the black pouch is a little bit see-through...not so much in regular lighting, but with the flash it's like the fiasco with Kerry's daughter's see through dress all over again. Except not quite as scandalous. I think the ant on the picnic-table type fabric is super cute, excellent stencil work!

2  2 pillowcases + circle skirt = gone wild! EDITED w/ new skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by greenevie on: August 07, 2005 01:06:30 AM
As my trials and tribulations for the evening draw to a close at only 3am, I bring to you my second attempt at a skirt made from a pillowcase -- or two, as it is in this case. I have an under-layer of tan rayon, and I thought I'd jacked up the whole thing by putting that layer on first -- but in the end, I figured out how to make it so both the inside and the outside of the skirt look nice. I am out of words to accurately describe what I'm trying to say.

Edited: I just wanted to post a picture of another skirt I've made that's similar, for a friend. I'll eventually post all my in-action pictures so I can make a tutorial. One day my friends, one day.

My friend Rachel made one with the tutorial, then helped me make one. Turned out really well I think -- I'm going to start modifying it and make a few more for school, I think.

I made two more -- and they turned out fabulous! (Made one for a friend as a "sorry you got dumped" present, and then her roommate comissioned me to make another one like it). Here's pictures of the second one:

5  pillow case turned "cheep" skirt! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by greenevie on: August 03, 2005 08:47:46 PM
I've recently become obsessed with collecting pillowcases and sheets from the Salvation Army with cool old prints on them. This is the first skirt I've made (so it's just lime green and doesn't have a print -- I still really liked the color!) Add a little applique and some embroidery and this 50 cent pillowcase turned into a stylish little skirt...

My own first attempt at a bag of this kind...when I stitched the insides and the outsides together, I stitched a little too close to the beginning of the zipper and gave the bag an odd shape. Better luck next time.

7  Asian/dragon embroidered messenger bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by greenevie on: July 15, 2005 08:21:54 AM
A lady at my karate school wanted me to make her a "really big" bag to put all her folders/notebooks in when she substitute teaches at her kids' elementary school, and voila. I picked the Asian theme for her since, well...we do karate together...it seemed appropriate. Plus little kids would probably find the dragon kind of cool.
Completed bag:

Under the flap -- magnetic snap and a big front pocket

The outside fabric has little asian characters all over it, and so does the inside fabric. Here's one side with a pocket that I embroidered

And the other side with another embroidered pocket

A view from above

A close-up of the dragon. Which took me too long to do.

The embroidery patterns are by Sublime Stitching.

I've made about four of these bags for customers roughly following this tutorial now, and everyone loves them!

9  cute girly skull & crossbones purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by greenevie on: May 05, 2005 07:55:52 AM
I made this bag for a girl in one of my classes this semester after she saw some purses I'd made for other friends in the same class. She's a rock/goth type girl (lovely, lovely tattoos) and drew a sketch of a skull and cross bones for me and wanted to see if I could make it into a purse for her. And voila
The outside is this black vinyl stuff I got cheap at Walmart and the lining is a pink cotton quilting fabric. Hint: vinyl is the absolutely devil to work with. It was super-thick and kept getting bunched up in my sewing machine, and the texture made it hard for the machine to pull it through. (I have a good machine too!) It turned out really cute though.

10  girly skull in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by greenevie on: May 03, 2005 12:57:42 PM
A sort of gothish/pierced/tattooed type girl in my Poetry class saw some bags I'd made for two other friends in class and comissioned me to maker her one using a skull sketch she made. She cracks me up -- she seems really hardcore, but insisted that it have a cute little pink bow and pink lining. I'm giving her the bag tonight, I hope she likes it...

I also learned today what an almost impossible b*tch this vinyl from Walmart was to work with. It made me want to hurt things.
