Thank you (although I switched the pics a bit so I guess it's #3 now Grin)
22  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pants and skirts into skirts on: January 26, 2009 02:37:06 AM
After loosing about 40 pounds I started liking wearing short skirts, but didn't have any money to buy so I rummaged through my closets and found some skirts and a pair of pants that I never used and this is the result:




Skirt #1 - reconstructed from the legs of mum's old cotton velveteen pants and added some details



Skirt #2 - cut off from a long skirt and added details from the original skirt #3



Skirt #3 - cut off from a mid calf long skirt



Skirt #4 - cut off from a long skirt


23  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Knitting bag and tiny purse - my first two projects on: January 26, 2009 02:25:28 AM
My first bag ever - oh well, I made one in kindergarten but other than that  Grin

I cut off the lower part of the leg of an old pair of corduroy pants and used the bottom hem as the top of the bag. The handle is just the bottom hem of the other leg, trimmed as close to the seam as possible.



And for Christmas I wanted something small to put my meds and other important small stuff in for our dinner at grandma's. I had the above bag with me so I made a small purse to put in it, using the top of a skirt. All I did was cut, sew together and put in a band for closure at the top - the "quilting" of the fabric was already there  Smiley


The size is about 3.5x3.5 inches

This is a really great idea - I have a bunch of placemats lying around - now I know what to make of them

Thanks for sharing Smiley

Oh my god this is exactly what I was looking for yesterday when I wanted to make my own wallet - but on the other hand if I had found it yesterday I wouldn't have been able to actually make it as I don't have any vinyl at home right now - but I'm sure keeping this tutorial for when I get some - and hopefully that'll be really soon.

Thanks for sharing this with us.

That is one really beautiful bag and also a terrific tutorial.

Not having English as my first language I sometimes find it a bit hard to follow written instructions, but this tutorial was just great and with the pictures really showing every detail - thank you - this is a keeper Smiley

Wow!! I really love everything you've made but especially the wallets on the second set of pictures and the purse with the shoulder strap from 2007 xmas collection (where can I find a pattern for such a purse?)
