according to the page i took it off of, the poster is supposed to say "women workers, take up your rifles!" which I basically took to be the russian, more bad ass equivalent of "we can do it" with Rosey Riveter Smiley

Oh, darn it, I forgot to check for the masculine/feminine ending. So many endings! I love languages, though. The clock just keeps getting better: Rosie the Riveter too! Thanks again, trisarose!

Well, Im right in the middle of a second go for Calabaza's main item. Taking a little break to look around for a back up plan in case it doesnt work out. Then Ill go finish it and we'llllll see. If it does work, then at least I'll have my back up plan to use for her for another time (if she'll have me again Wink)
You're home already?!
Sheesh, yes, of course I'll have you again...if you'll have me. Swap anxiety's giving me a zero confidence vote right now but it's in the mail! DC# coming shortly Smiley
I can't wait to see what you're working on. Or the back up plan. I'm not picky. Everything you make is great!

@JerseyGal: I don't think I have too much of an idea about dieselpunk either. Roll Eyes

@Sticker: Haha! I'm feeling very well stalked, swap partner  Grin

Thank you both!

The other day a package arrived from Unicornlasers:

I love these chessmen hair sticks!

Unfortunately the rest were broken, but I think with a needle and thread I can fix 2 of them.

Thank you, Unicornlasers! And thank you so much to Kookaloo_Starr for being willing to angel!

I made this military-inspired messenger bag for my partner in the dieselpunk swap. It was my first time using grommet tape and I just ordered a bunch more yards of it Smiley  I don't know if I got the dieselpunk vibe or not, but I'm pretty please with how it turned out.

The back pocket, topped with grommet tape.

The grommet tape is sewn all the way down the sides and into the bottom seam. The pockets pleats are sewn at the bottom and pressed all the way up. This fabric holds a crease really well.

The extra tape from the adjustable strap part can hide out in one of the pockets.

I used a buckle and a vest-tie-buckle-thing for the adjusting hardware. The grommet tape that went all the way down the sides goes all the way past the top of the bag to become the strap.

The inside is lined with muslin and has a pocket with brown grommet tape trim.

Oh, and there's grommet tape running all the way up the center front under the flap as well! I love this stuff. It should come in every color of the rainbow plus patterns and different widths. I got mine from MajikCraft on Etsy. I only saw black at JoAnns.

Thanks for looking! I'd love to hear what you think. Is it dieselpunky? Do you know of other places to buy grommet tape? C&C welcome. Smiley
