First off... the sexy teaser photo!!!
) is my favorite band for a lot of reasons. I originally posted a recon of my WHY? shirt here- http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=265653
but after a few washes, the printed American Apparel shirt became too small and the neck hole got all weird on me. I'm not really one to wear shirts that have logos on them anymore... so the dilemma of what to do with the shirt sat in my closet for a while...
Until I decided to cut out the logo and use some sequins I acquired from the thrift store to embellish it. I was kinda going for a Our Lady Guadalupe look for it.
After I was finished with the many hours of sewing sequins... I had to decide what to put it on. I had just finished making this purse- http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=319290
and decided I would use the same pattern I created for this one. The next problem was figuring out what fabric(s) to use. After raiding my fabric dresser (and my closet) I came up with FOUR unique fabrics that somehow went well together in my mad scientist sort of crafting way. The best part was... THEY'RE ALL THRIFTED! Hooray for OOAK!
After sewing and attaching the sequined logo, I decided to add more sequins to the front and back of the bag in a couple places... this is the back of the bag below.
Oh wait... what is this???
That can't be... the inside right??
Turn the purse inside-out and you've got a whole different purse inside! AND CHECK OUT THAT POCKET!!!
Pretty sweet! The inside pocket fabric/opening and handle fabrics were taken from this weird skirt I found while thrifting. It had THREE different panels of fabrics... but only the red and yellow fabrics were worth it.
All in all, I'm really happy with this purse. Sure I used the seam ripper more than I've ever used it in my entire crafting career... but it was fun to make. AND- I get to sport my favorite band wherever I go!
One last pic for the road...
