2  I have fallen in love with faux leather in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by elsielorpu on: December 13, 2014 06:53:00 PM

Here are a few of the purses I've worked on in the past month. I've really fallen in love with faux leather and although it can be quite challenging at times and break many needles, I love the clean look that result at the end.

3  Men's wallet with faux leather and fabric in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by elsielorpu on: July 19, 2014 02:51:47 PM
I've been working on these for a couple of weeks and finally got it down. I made some mistakes with the first ones where the fabric was spilling over the leather. I finally have something I'm happy with.
The brown one was almost perfect, but I made it too long so it doesn't work too well for pockets. I gifted it to my mom's husband. The teal one was the first one I did. But cash pocket was too high and you could see it while the wallet was closed and I didn't like that. I want the fabric to be a surprise.

5  Vinyl Placemat and Paisley upholstery fabric Utility purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by elsielorpu on: May 22, 2014 04:28:36 AM
I wish I could jot down my patterns and repeat a purse that I make. I always seem to just wing it like I did with this one. I used two and a half placemats to construct the outer body and the handles. It has a magnetic closure and I used the upholstery fabric for the inner lining and side pockets. The placemat was so structurally sound that I didn't need to use any stiffeners/interfacing in the purse.

6  Peplum top out of long sleeve tees in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by elsielorpu on: May 19, 2014 05:04:58 PM
This took me about 90 minutes to complete. I love peplums because they are so flattering. I wanted to try something I'd seen on Pinterest, but wanted to work with what I found. The full tutorial is on my blog, but I put in darts to taper the waist and used part of a second shirt. Now I've got another project in mind for the other shirt and can't wait to see how that pans out.

Just finished this hobo purse. My own pattern. Used faux leather and African fabric. If I liked pink I would keep it.

8  Vegan leather placemat purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by elsielorpu on: April 22, 2014 07:34:04 AM
I wanted to try doing zipper and still keep the integrity of the placemat even though I did have to cut it  down some to get the dimension I wanted. This took quite a while of trying to figure out stitching when it was too thick for my sewing machine.

9  Wedding picture wristlet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by elsielorpu on: April 14, 2014 05:16:39 PM
My friend is getting married for the second time to my other friend. I'm attending their destination wedding. I wanted to do something special for her and made this. It's a wristlet for her to put some of her things (phone, lipstick/gloss, etc). All I knew was that her dress was a satin ruched ivory dress. I saw it once months ago so I really hope it matches and that she likes it. Inside is a picture that her fiance sent me with he and her two daughters and the other side is a quote along with a picture of their engagement that I took off her FB.

10  Simplicity1802 completed dress own purse pattern in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by elsielorpu on: March 21, 2014 04:04:51 PM

Made something for myself last weekend for an event yesterday. The pattern got a bit confusing at times and I made a couple of goofs not turning over the pattern pieces when I cut, but luckily I was able to make some adjustments and the error is only seen on the wrong side. I looked all over online for help when I got stuck and didn't find it so I'll be transcribing all my notes later to help someone else out there who decides to try it. Took a total of 14 hours for the dress. The purse I completed on another night.
