1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Two Super cute wristlets and a coin purse... on: March 21, 2005 02:37:32 AM
Here is some wristlets that i made tonight and a coin purse i made yesterday! (Yes i have been a busy bee, they are quite quick to do tho... but anyways, on with the bags!)


Wristlet one: Bone white with 3 different circles of pink and floral on the front


Inside of Wristlet one: with same floral print as on the front


Wristlet two: Denim outer with 3 circles also (ok i was in a circle mood tonight) which are red and grey. This is my first go at a wristlet and i think the handle is a tad long, but s'all cool baby! If you look at them too much it makes your eyes go funny. haha (thats all i need at night, crazy eyes Roll Eyes Grin)


Inside of wristlet two: with a plain black lining


Coin purse with 2 hearts (pretty self explanitory, this was the first one i tried, so i dont think its as good as the others...


Thankyou for looking! Any feed back would as always be unreal! And if anyone has any tips for the ends of zippers (everytime i make a bag with a zipper the top corners sit really odd. I dont know what i am doing wrong!??)
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Soft pink cammo clutch and floral clutch on: February 25, 2005 08:53:33 PM

Here is a pic of a pink cammo clutch i made a while ago,... the flower was a bit of an afterthought, it has 3 pink pearl beads in the middle


Here is the inside with soft pink lining and a magnetic closure (i think i am addicted to them) haha


This is me holding it, sorry about the bad lighting (my bf took the pic, Roll Eyes hee hee ) Wink



And here is the floral clutch (well it isnt really floral but I didnt know how to describe it). I made this out of an old skirt and used the lining of the skirt for the lining of the bag. Quite handy!


Here is the inside (again with a magnetic closure, i told ya!) I am a bit dissapointed in how the flap turned out cause i didnt allow for the sides being sew also, good lesson tho! And it looks like it is crooked, but it isnt.  Roll Eyes Oh well, im not a very good photographer!

Any comments would be really appreciated good or bag... ooops i ment bad, i think i have a case of bag brain! hee hee Roll Eyes Wink

Thanks, Tails
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Make up bag and coin/ID purse on: February 25, 2005 08:26:56 PM
Here is a make up bag I made from starlene's tute for zippered gusset bags. My first try at making a bag with a zipper. *SIGH* haha



The front (If you cant see properly cause of the vinyl there is a pic of a monster and a thought bubble that says "I'm so not a morning person"


Side on view (excuse background mess, haha)


Inside view (sorry it isnt totally clear)



This is the coin purse (it isnt up to the standard i would like but it was my first try, my prototypes if you will)  Wink


And this is a view from the back... i did have a pic of the inside but hasnt seemed to have uploaded... it has a velcro closure.

Any comments would be really appreciated, but please keep in mind these are only 'prototypes' and no where near as good as what i would like. Sorry... i get really nervous when i post a bag!

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Need help with clutch ends on: January 26, 2005 10:17:47 PM
I am wanting to make a clutch, but i dont have a clue how to cut out the side pieces. (each end) (Im sorry but i have no clue on what they would be called, is it the gussets?). Can anyone help me or describe what the shape should be. If you dont understand what on earth i am talking about just let me know.  Cheesy
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Swarovski crystal necklace... opinions appreciated! on: January 26, 2005 08:29:08 PM


Close up (Sorry its a bit bright... you cant really see but the chains are all different colours)


*Edited to add... Better close up


Me wearing it

I made this a little while ago as a piece for my folio (never ended up going to the interview for course, Had a baby  Wink) But someone (Very nice, hee hee) noticed i had it as my avitar pic and I thought i would post some bigger pics of it. It has swarovski crystal beads and different colours of chain at the bottom. It was a labor of love, meaning it took a lot of trial and error (and some swear words... lol but i think the end result was worth the pain  Cheesy)
Hope you like...

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Vinyl clutch with beaded dragonfly... my first clutch (now with bigger pics) on: January 21, 2005 01:24:15 AM





(sorry this one is still small... but it isnt very good quality anyways...

I have been making totes and handbags for a little while now and i just loooove clutches and seeing some of the fantastic ones that have been posted on here i thought i would share my first go. I made this out of an old vinyl skirt i had from the days when i used to DJ, hee hee. It had lining so i just used the lining for in the clutch. It didnt come out as good as i imagined, a bit puffy, and when i left a hole to pull the bag thru i did it on the side and you can see my hand stitching...  Roll Eyes (i wont do that next time) I prolly shouldnt have tried with such a difficult fabric on my first go. Roll Eyes And you cant really see, but i have sewn in a zip pocket... over the lining, not in it. There is a magnetic closure and I hand beaded the dragonfly myself! That turned out pretty good! Then i hand sewed it on. Sorry the pics arent too clear... im new to taking pics of my bags. (Anyone have any tips?) I hope you like it!? Please, any coments i would be welcomed! Good or bad (or should i say constructive... hee hee)  Grin I have been thinking of starting my own business, but just have to get enough bags made to sell! I am making a green pleated clutch now... but unsure what colour the lining should be... the green is a pastel sort of green. And very thin... so i might have to use something heavy... i was thinking denim?
