1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: NO-SEW SKIRTYDRESS on: July 24, 2007 06:37:02 PM
Oh my... when I saw this on the front page, I thought someone made a shirt out of a garbage bag, and feeling sadistic, I clicked on it. But I'm very happy to see that you made a cute little dress-skirt-whatnot with it. And saved the world from someone else wearing that shirt as-is.
Well played. Smiley

haha no I'm not from Minnesota - I'm in Saskatchewan. And people were doing the exact same thing here too...

I just love this bag !!! So cool...  What did you make the handles of ?
I bought the handles, actually. They were on sale at fabricland. They're really neat cuz they're kinda squishy and not very stiff so they're pretty comfortable to hold on to.

Thanks everyone!
And to answer the last question... no, there's no zipper. It's a stretch fabric, and I can wiggle into it.  I always muck up zippers, so I figured it wouldn't be worth the effort.

Thanks!
Lately I've been forgetting to attach handles before I sew the lining and whatnot together, but this seemed to work out well, so who am I to complain?

oooh Thankya!
I freehanded it this afternoon, while a chum made helpful comments.
I must add, I'm very jealous of your weather.

I bought some nice khaki fabric, and saw a really pretty purse someone made... somewhere.. I feel terrible that I totally stole his/her idea and can no longer remember where I saw it. But as long as we know that I am guilty of visual theft and don't take credit for the idea...
ANnnnnnyways.

I couldn't possibly love the lining fabric any more than I do.

Although, I almost love the buttons as much as I love the lining. I'm a big fan of the button bin at fabricland. big big fan.

*drools*
But yes, it holds a ton of stuff and is incredibly darling AND hasn't fallen apart, unlike some of my other favourite purses that I've made.
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Retro Stewardess clutch on: February 21, 2007 04:47:17 PM
I saw this pattern in a book at Chapters, but being cheap and all that, I just stared at it for a while and went home and copied it. It's the craftster way!
Then I found these delightful buttons, and somehow, it looked stewardessy.

I'm not smart enough to take pictures of the inside, but it's just a long strip of velcro keeping it shut, and it's lined in that magic lime green fabric.
I thought it would be fun to make a wristband thingy to hold it, so I just made a long strip of the lining and knotted it and whatnot so when I use it, I can swing the purse around and make airplane noises... *am very much a grownup, you all see*

It's not so much spring here.... just that it stopped being -40 and now it's just -5. Therefore, it's dress-makin time!

It's pretty exciting and faux-wrap style.


I'm very excited to wear it out on Saturday for birthday-party-based-martinis. Yay dress, and yay birthday!!

Thanks everyone!

I made the outside of the bag out of some upholstery samples I got from my friend's aunt. It's some kind of fake suede-y stuff, which I thought looked like old paper... then I was like "oooh it could be a map!" - Then I just drew on it with a permanent marker.
