Made a new friend. Hit it off so amazingly well. When she had a hysterectomy a few months later, I took it as an opportunity to show off my weird crafty side. We all have that, right? Anyway, here's the cutest little uterus you ever did see.
And to top it off, I made it into a pouch, KAM Snap at the bottom opens to reveal a lovely red satin lining. And when I gave it to her, it was stuffed with shreds of red satin for one last period. Omg, I've just been dying laughing about this.
I'm making some cute kid's clothes from my vintage fabric stash. I had a rainbow brite sheet I dug out and made a few dresses with. And added ruffles to denim looking leggings, it pairs super cute. Hope you guys enjoy!
Your bags are always so nicely made and full of details and lots of pockets and pouches for stuff!
I made a similar style bag a few years ago but in a messenger size...I love the buckle type of closures!
Your velcro idea is pretty interesting...what type of badges? Is it the sticky or the soft side of velcro?
Also, the zipper on the flap...does the pouch go into the flap or down the bag? I was wondering because someone asked me to put a pouch in the flap but in my mind, it opened upside down...does that make sense?
Thanks so much. The velcro is the soft side only, it is for the military name badges and rank badges. The zipper on the flap opens into the flap. My reasoning was that once the flap was opened, the zipper pouch would be accessible. With the zipper closed and flap closed the pocket would still be in the right direction to keep items at the bottom and not near the top at risk of spilling out.
A friend had an idea and I went with it, decided to invest in making a prototype. I used a lightweight ACU fabric with a solid foliage green water resistant fabric for the bottom and sides. Its full of pockets and the same design as all the 80s bags I've been making. I used gun metal D-rings because that's what I had on hand, any other bags this style will have black plastic D-rings. I used a plastic tri-glide to make the adjustable strap. I also put strips of velcro on the front of the bag for badges. I've got a few more styles I'm going to test out soon.
Been saving character bed sheets for quite a while now, finally putting some to good use. Today's special is Care Bears and Rainbow Brite with a Murky and Lurky patch on the front. I also got my new custom tags in from tagtopia on etsy, I'm really pleased with how they turned out.
I used cover buttons to make these and I'm so happy with the way they turned out. They are hand drawn and colored. I put them on hair clips, bows, headbands, and pony tail holders. I use rhinestones for the eyes.
