1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / cute summer handbags. [5 images] on: May 31, 2005 07:29:42 PM

i wanted to make some bags that were simple and cute, and quite easy to make.
i'm hoping to make more and sell them over the summer.

i was thinking of asking around $10-15 for them, what do you think? thanks!!
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / yet another set of felt flowers on: August 30, 2004 09:09:03 AM
alright. i know i'm not the first person to post felt flowers. and i'm sure many of you are getting sick of them by now, lol. BUT i was really happy with how these turned out so i just had to post them.

in the centres i put either a small clear bead or a small clear button. i used contrasting thread to attach the smaller petal to the bigger petal, and to attach the bead or button. and i'm planning to make many more!!
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / zipper foot? on: August 28, 2004 06:38:28 AM

i always thought the zipper foot was used to put in zippers... it only makes sense right?

however while looking over a few tutorials [zipper top jordy bag, tyvek pouch, zippered pocket in jordy bag] none of them seemed to have used their zipper foot when sewing their zippers.

so is it necessary to use your zipper foot when sewing a zipper?
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / pink and beigh colored wallet! on: May 29, 2004 02:54:09 PM
i looked at various posts featuring wallets throughout the site and took a bit of inspiration from each of them. i basically "winged" it and came up with this. i'm feeling lazy right now so i won't post a tutorial, but if anyone wants one i'll put it up later.



inside the bill part

i accented it with light pink thread. oh and although i owe credit to many people for their wonderful wallets, i think i should make a special note to thank Treasure Cats post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6473.0 because that's where i got the idea for the ribbon.
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Tutorial: from coat to messanger bag on: January 26, 2004 06:03:19 PM
alright. so i have been wanting to make a messanger bag for awhile. and i've been wanting to make it out of cord, or something else as thick. yet everytime i went to the store to look at fabric, i would look at it longingly knowing i could never bring myself to spend that much.

and then i had a great idea! what if i bought something at frenchys [used clothes] and used that material? so that's exactly what i did.




it holds two binders... so hopefully i'll be able to use it as a bookbag seeing as the one i have now is falling apart.

it was the first time using interfacing, and i really liked it. i'm definitely going to have to use it for future projects. andd i'm very proud of this bag Smiley


i have 3 rectangles of outer (10" by 14"), 3 rectangles of lining (10" by 14"), 2 strips of outer (10" by 4"), 2 strips of inner (10" by 4"), 2 strips of outer (14" by 4") and 2 strips of inner (14" by 4"). phew that was confusing. PLUS fabric for the strap which isn't here... and i didn't measure it. :/

then i made two uhh things out of the inner and outer fabric.

and the outer, and lining for flaps.

i hope this gives you more of an idea, if you have anymore questions please ask !
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / my first bags! on: January 16, 2004 02:06:25 PM
alright! so these are the first two bags i've made. i used this tutorial to make both, yet with slight alterations to the sizes.

i made this one as sort of a proto-type.

and my bigger version:




i made the second one out of an old t-shirt and some teenaged mutant ninja turtles fabric i had. i noticed some bunching/pleating while sewing, and i think it's because the t-shirt is kind of stretchy... anyone have any suggestions as to how i could fix that next time? i'm not really happy with the strap, because there's a lot of bunching/pleating, and so therefore i haven't attached it yet, only with safety pins.
