I made this reversible tote and I added a ribbon closure. I love the way it looks with the ribbon, but is anyone going to tie a ribbon when they want to close their purse? It is the only way I could think a closure would work on a reversible purse. At least that would look good. What do you think?
A pic if the main fabric and ribbon closure
I added a big pocket inside and outside.
I tucked the ribbon inside so you could see what it would look like without the ribbon.
I can't stop making these things! Here are 2 more and I like them even better! b2j2fitz asked for instructions on how I made it. Here is the rough instructions.
The body measures 13 inches wide, 7 inches deep. I used a CD to round the corners. The flap part measures 10 3/4 inches wide, 3 inches deep. You cut out 4 pieces of fabric (2 outer and 2 lining). Then I fully interface the outside with lightweight fusible interfacing. The lining I only interface the flap part. For the button loop, I cut a piece of fabric 5 X 2 1/2, fold in both sides to the middle, and then fold again. From here you put it together like if you were making a purse. If you need further information, let me know and I will add it here. I hope this helps!
I have a new design! I am falling in love with it! I call it The Liz Clutch. I started designing it this weekend. I was dreaming about it and couldn't wait to get started on it. Well, as most things do, it didn't look quite the way I saw it in my head. Today, I played around with it, and I must say I like it better than I imagined! Sorry about the pictures. It was getting dark and I really wanted to get a few shots.
I need feedback from you! I love it, but do you? I am keeping this one myself, but I am itching to make more!
I made this one for me and I love it! I carry it everywhere! It is great for quick trips when I just need my wallet, cell phone and keys. When I need a purse, I just put it in there and it is like a wallet! What do you think?
I said I would post the other one once I got it finished! The bag is made form the same pattern as the orange tote bag. I just changed the straps. The bag is 16 1/4 in. wide and 10 1/4 in. deep from the lowest point. The straps tie, so they are adjustable. Fully interfaced. Big pocket inside measuring 6 1/2 in. wide X 5 1/2 in. deep. Comments welcome and appreciated! I think I love this bag!
Very roomy bag! I had an idea in my head and this is what came of it. Let me know what you think. The inside lining is from a pillowcase I got at a second hand store. There is a big pocket inside. I have been making bags like crazy!
Thanks for looking! I am working on another one today. Just changing the straps a bit. I will post soon.
