Nice job!  I am an admitted piping snob and would not have thought you could do that nicely without a zipper foot.  It makes the project.

Be sure and post your friend's reaction.  That is such an amazing gift.

That is really lovely.

My favorite band, Augie March from Australia, uses a lot of bird imagery and I have been thinking about using some of the lyrics or a graphic rendering of them in crafts, mainly sewing. 

Your book is really inspirational, although the execution is beyond anything I could imagine doing.  Very, very nicely done.

Wow - I thought I wanted to do this until I looked at the instruction sheet and it seems overwhelming.

I am mainly a knitter, and while I am confident enough in crochet to think I can figure out the stitches, I don't have lots of experience in crochet garment construction.  OK, now that I think about it, I have none - I've done blankets, shawls, tote bags, etc.  But I have the yarn and would love to make at least the body part of this as a vest.

I need an expert crocheter's advice on this.  Is this totally unrealistic to do for a first garment?

These are really nice.  What did you use for the bottom?

I would like to make something similar for a friend and really like this one, but would like it to fit a range of coffee cup sizes.  Is there any stretch to it longwise or would you need to plan it for one cup?

Very nice.  I love the placket and bet the style would look good on my "baby" - although she is 15.  I wonder if the sleeve seam would be too heavy for a larger size?
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Black cat purse made from an old bra on: September 30, 2009 05:35:28 PM
I made this out of a thrift store bra.  It was a strapless bra so the top side was relatively straight across.  I used a seam ripper to separate the cups from the rest of the bra, and I took the underwire out of one side.  

I carefully matched the cups, then put a zipper on the upper edge.  I then sewed the two cups together with a straight stitch along the edge.  I then free-hand embroidered the cat face with fleece scraps and old buttons, then attached a rick-rack strap.  I made it up as I went along, so I wanted to sew first, but this is not very efficient - if you have a clear vision of what you want, embroider first.  

The picture makes the bra look a little glossy, but I took a poll among friends and no one could immediately identify it as a bra.  I am giving it to a little girl so I didn't want it to be too obvious!
