1  Overnight bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Diver on: May 09, 2014 01:09:15 PM
The design is my own, no pattern used. The fabric is a vintage geometric print from my collection and brown corduroy. Just a plain dark brown cotton for lining.



Thanks for looking!

2  Plaid messenger bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Diver on: March 18, 2014 06:21:23 AM
I love plaid! I can't help it.
This bag is my own design. I used reclaimed vintage fabric I found at the thrift store. Again, I used the faux suede from the remnant bin for the bottom of the bag and the strap. I'm online hunting for some more notions so I don't have to keep using these little purse snaps. Luckily it works for this bag, it's not as big as the old man bag. If anyone knows a good website that sells purse making supplies, please post a link, thanks!

This one's my fav, I used some vintage juvenile fabric for the inside of the front zipper pocket.

3  Old man Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Diver on: March 05, 2014 12:56:05 PM
This bag reminds me of an old suit jacket with elbow patches. The fabric is a vintage hounds-tooth type polyester knit. I used a thick, microfiber type fabric for the bottom of the bag.

4  Vintage Striped Corduroy Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Diver on: February 20, 2014 06:50:30 PM
I am really proud of this one. I've been saving this vintage corduroy for quite some time, hoping my sewing skills would improve enough to dare cut into it. Finally the day has come. I didn't use a pattern or measure anything, I just saw it in my head and made it. I am thrilled with the outcome.

5  Smurfs Messenger bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Diver on: January 22, 2014 04:21:48 PM
I had a lot of fun making this bag. I used some repurposed smurf bedsheets for the lining, a red polka dot cotton print that I had leftover from making xmas stockings and the outer fabric is a thick suit type material.

6  Replica of vintage bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Diver on: November 11, 2013 07:48:27 AM
My friend had a lovely vintage bag and I liked it so much I made my own! It's not exactly like hers, but very close. I love that it saddles, I can throw it over an arm chair. Plenty of space inside. The back has two large deep pockets, perfect for phone, sunglasses and keys. The lining is a vintage bedsheet. The shell fabric is a yellow canvasy type material, thrifted.

7  Sloths in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Diver on: November 11, 2013 07:43:37 AM
Just a random urge to make some sloths. I can't stop making them!
I google image searched for inspiration but made my own pattern.

8  Man in the Yellow Hat in Halloween Costumes by Diver on: November 09, 2013 07:25:48 PM
This year, we love Curious George.
I made everything but the yellow shirt and George.
- The yellow pants were originally thrifted yellow scrub pants. Had plenty of leftover material to make the tie.
- The hat is felt, I made my own pattern.
- The belts are black cotton and yellow felt for the buckle.
Mostly sewing with some hot glue here and there.

9  My new creation in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Diver on: May 06, 2013 06:06:43 AM
This is my fourth batch of owls, they started out on a white background in color but have evolved to the silver on black.

I've been off craftster for a bit, but I'm back. I've still been busy crafting since my absence, so much in fact I think I'm ready for my very first craft show.

10  Quick and Dirty Jewelry Storganization in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Diver on: June 09, 2010 07:31:14 PM
1 wall
2 nails
1 wallet chain
2 carabiner hooks

a mess of jewelry







I'm moving in a couple months, so I didn't want to make a mess of the wall. I was also dying to get that big pile of stuff out of the trinket box (pictured) and somewhere I could actually see what I had. Hooray!
