1  Re: Help-labels 4 purses in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by superheroine on: December 28, 2004 10:10:23 AM
I make my own.  I found a piece of fabric in the remnant bin at my local Fabricland that resembled the slippery/satin-y type of material used in tags, so I cut them to size, interface, and then iron on my own logo.  It's not the greatest (you can kinda see the rectangle where the iron on is), but it was cost efficient since I already had the iron-ons and it puts scrap interfacing to good use.

2  Star Trek bag!!! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by superheroine on: December 26, 2004 04:13:29 PM


It's about 14" x 6" and fits all the stuff I need to lug around.  I ironed-on the Enterprise to a piece of thin white cotton and then sewed it on, along with little glass seed beads for stars.

3  Three takes on the Jordy bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by superheroine on: December 24, 2004 11:23:01 AM
Hello everyone,

My name is Tina and I'm new here *waves*.  I've been browsing through all these wonderful tutorials, and I've made a few bags myself.  I'm addicted!   Smiley  I gave them all square bottoms a la Jordy bag.

A purse I made for my friend's birthday.  I used my Bedazzler (does anyone remember them/still have one?  I LOVE MINE, haha!) to set the little pearls.



A messenger bag I made for myself.



((edit))
At misanthrope's request, here are the images I used for the appliqus.  The star and eigth note are from a freeware font called Rock Star which you can download from http://www.dingbatdepot.com/dingbats_letter.asp?ID=R&offset=10.  I borrowed a strat from the Fender site and silhouetted it using the good ol' magic wand in Photoshop.  Wink

((/edit))

A tote/bookbag I made for another friend.  She's in Engineering and loves science and math, so I ironed-on a picture of Einstein.



After making three bags I realized I can't sew straight.  I know it sounds dumb, but does anyone have any tips or tricks they could share?  Thanks!
