1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Men's wallet with faux leather and fabric 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.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Onsie vest and shorts set. self drafted on: June 10, 2014 07:27:37 PM
Made this outfit for friend's son for his birthday.  All my patterns. First boy outfit.
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Vinyl Placemat and Paisley upholstery fabric Utility purse 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.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Peplum top out of long sleeve tees 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.
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Ankara and pink faux leather hobo purse on: May 07, 2014 07:28:59 PM
Just finished this hobo purse. My own pattern. Used faux leather and African fabric. If I liked pink I would keep it. 
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Vegan leather placemat purse 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.
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Wedding picture wristlet 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.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Simplicity1802 completed dress own purse pattern 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.
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Suede Placemat Purse on: March 06, 2014 06:43:47 PM
Here's my latest purse. It's a placemat purse. I got the suede placemat from Burlington Coat factory. I used suede fabric on the sides with fleece interface.  
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Revamped my favorite cross body purse with duct tape on: March 03, 2014 10:44:35 AM
I really loved my little purse but it was falling apart. So I used a dollar store placemat to reconstruct the same style. My husband got me a Superman duct tape which I used for the overlay. I'll do a proper blog of the project but wanted to share the effort. I reused the zippers, strap and front pocket for the new purse.
