22  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: What do you look for in a purse/bag? on: March 08, 2014 02:12:32 PM
Well, the reason why we make our own purses is because someone else's idea of perfect isn't our own! At the moment I have my "work bag" that's a boxy thing with a button/hole closure, one open patch pocket that holds my late morning snack, extra eyeglasses and instant decaf, and a zippered "pocket on a string" that holds my phone, money and other essentials so I can take it out of the bag and throw it around my neck to make quick trips to the store or whatever when I'm not at work. It's big enough to cart my lunch to the work fridge, water bottle and a book. I don't really like hauling big bags all over the place, that's so tedious! I don't need to pack a suitcase every time I leave the house.

You could use some stencils or stamps to make a pattern or irregular pattern with a color you do like, if you can tolerate the old blue coming through. For the inside, if you don't want to take the lining out/bag apart, you can either hand stitch a new lining to the old one, hot glue it in, or sew some snaps all around the inside top and snap a new lining in.

Or you can do the opposite and put the snaps on the outside and make a new cover.  Though that might be just like making an entirely new purse.

Does leather bleach?  You could try some bleach stencils, maybe.

Oh, I had to look that one up! Apparently regular bleach ruins the finish, but there's a leather bleach you can get. Interesting, since I'll be trying some leather projects in the future.

You can try some templates at worldlabel.com, I used to print a lot of labels, and their templates were pretty good. http://www.worldlabel.com/Pages/template_1.htm

If you're doing a no-bake, it's best to put the fruit on just before serving so the fruit doesn't sweat into the "cake" part too much. Once in a while I get a craving for a no-bake. It's got a bit of a different flavor, brings back childhood memories.

I think a box of samples would serve you better in a face-to-face and folks could actually get a notion of the size, weight, etc. That, along with the flier/order form should be enough to get folks on board.

Why not make a variety of bags? I personally need big, boxy bags with longish handles so I and my offspring The Precioussss can swing 'em around our big winter coat shoulders and carry the whole lot of suckers up 3 flights of stairs to the apartment in one go!

I would just make a simple flier, maybe a half sheet with one side pics/examples and one side a price list. Don't wait for other bands to ask for one, go round to the other tables and make purposeful contacts.
