1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Rainbow brite coin purse (with frame) on: July 20, 2015 09:11:06 PM

Edit: I thought I had copy/pasted the info but I guess not, whoops!

The coin purse frame is sewn on, I drafted  my own pattern which includes a lining. I use regular fleece and a light interfacing for shape.

Love the idea about the missing antennae! Too easy not to do, thanks!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Rainbow Brite Girl's Dresses and bonus leggings! on: June 10, 2015 07:21:16 PM
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!

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Military style ACU women's purse/ messenger bag on: October 29, 2014 10:35:40 AM
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.
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / More sheet bags! Care Bears and Rainbow Brite on: October 25, 2014 07:01:13 AM
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.

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Owl hair clips on: October 21, 2014 07:06:30 AM
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.

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Vintage geometric print purse on: October 16, 2014 04:01:27 PM
Hi everybody!
I've had this fabric hiding in my stash for awhile now, it's finally getting to see the light.
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Patchwork batik tote on: October 09, 2014 07:02:23 AM
I'm so pleased with how it turned out. I used some batik fat quarters from my stash, some extra deep navy/charcoal pleather from the remnant bin and even some gun metal purse feet. It's my first time using the purse feet.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Rainbow brite bag on: October 08, 2014 08:06:23 PM
I'm pretty sure the fabric was either a sheet or a curtain, but all I had of it was scraps. The bag is messenger style with an adjustable strap, inside zipper pocket in the flap, 4 pockets inside and four outside.

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Smurf messenger bag on: October 02, 2014 02:36:02 PM
Another project from my bed sheet stash, this time it's smurfs!
I added a 1 1/2" adjustable strap to finish it.

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Wonderland Messenger Bag on: September 22, 2014 05:53:37 PM
I started with a chopped up Disney bed sheet featuring lots of Alice in Wonderland pictures. I had to get a little creative to make the random shapes and sizes of the pictures from the sheet. I used a grey twill.
To fill in the blank areas I did a little embroidery and used some crayola fabric markers. I added a couple zipper pockets to the front flap, a single pocket and divider inside, and a pocket in back with a magnetic snap.

I had more panels from the bedsheet so I made another wonderland purse. This one turned out even better! I added a new feature - an adjustable strap.
