11  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.

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.

Another project from my bed sheet stash, this time it's smurfs!
I added a 1 1/2" adjustable strap to finish it.





14  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.

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!
16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Plaid messenger bag 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.

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.

18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Vintage Striped Corduroy Purse 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.

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.

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.
