1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / my version of a purse organizer on: March 31, 2006 12:46:33 PM
I haven't posted in a while. I'd like to say I've been crafting the entire time, but sadly, I haven't. Anyway I recently found some threads for a "purseket"-like purse organizer. Since I'm always changing purses, I thought this would be a good thing for me to have. So I made one. Even though I didn't measure anything (other than just "eye-balling" it) and the pockets are a little short in the front, I'm really proud of it. Let me know what you think!!

Thanks to these threads for the inspiration:

2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / colored laptops on: October 06, 2005 10:10:54 AM
Hello, all!!

This isn't a craft, but I thought they were really awesome! Have any of you seen/heard about/talked about these? http://www.colorwarepc.com/content.aspx?id=19

I would love one (but I'm kinda thinking I would get tired of the color) but I can't see spending over $1500 for one. I searched on craftster and I found one thread where someone had turned their iBook pink and it was really cute. Has anyone else done this or know how to do this? How hard is it? Does it involve taking a lot of things apart?

Thanks in advance for your feedback!
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My very first project!! on: September 16, 2005 11:46:21 PM
Hello, everyone!!

First, let me say that I'm new to sewing and crafting in general. I've done some minor stuff like sew buttons back on and fix hems, but other than that, I have no sewing experience. So if you see crooked stitches, loose ends, etc. (and you will) please keep this in mind. (I know you kind craftsters understand Cheesy) This forum has really inspired me to make things and I'm so greatful for the opportunity to be a part of it! Grin  I know my work is  not the best, but still I'm pretty proud of myself!
I'm so excited! I just finished my first project, a purple wallet! (I couldn't wait 'till "normal" hours to post.) I made it by following hdogloveyou's Super Cute Wallet tutorial, which can be found here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=20925.0 Thanks so much!!
I'm so very proud of my wallet! I used some fabric I found at Wal-Mart, and a hair elastic and button for the closure. This was really easy to make and as soon as I get more fabric I'm makin' some more!! As you can see, my stitching isn't that good. (I hand sewed it all), but still I love it! Also, you can see that the stitching on the sides doesn't go all the way down. (You try hand-sewing through all those layers of fabric. lol!) As soon as I finished it, I put my money and cards in it! Well, here are the pics:

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / zen micro case tute on: August 14, 2005 02:11:11 PM
Hi everyone, although I've been browsing crafster for about a week or two, I just joined the other day. I've been looking for a tutorial on how to make a case for my zen micro. I've seen quite a few people who have them and was wondering if anyone knows of a tutorial. I haven't sewed much, but I think I can follow a pattern and step-by-step instructions. I saw one on savvyseams for a felt and fleece case for a Rio Karma and that's how I want mine to be. Any suggestions are welcome. I almost forgot to add: I don't have a sewing machine yet, so I'll be making it by hand. Thanks!!
