11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Seatbelt bag for my granddaughter's birthday! on: October 30, 2010 10:42:04 AM



MY granddaughter turned 5 the other day.  And I just got my wonderful Necchi sewing machine back from the shop, so I HAD to put it to good use!  So I made this as a birthday present.  It's lined with pink and orange print, because she loves those colors.

Here's yet another seatbelt bag, this one for my oldest daughter's Christmas present.  The web is actually a few shades darker than the photos.




I lucked out; I had some matching fabric in my stash that I used for the lining.

As it happens, my daughter had recently broken her old purse's strap, so my timing was excellent!
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Three new seat belt bags! Img heavy on: December 13, 2009 08:53:03 AM
I've been using my wonderful Necchi machine to make bags from seat belt webbing.



First, I made this gray one for a friend's birthday present.



When my daughter saw it, she wanted a blue one.  So I made this.



And when I saw how nice hers turned out, well, I just had to make one for myself.
14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Trader Joe's Flea Market Bag on: May 25, 2009 02:56:56 PM
My daughter works at Trader Joe's, and so has many of their re-usable shopping bags.  She asked me this morning to use some of them to make her a new purse using Grand Revival's Flea Market Bag pattern, and here is the result.



OUtside of bag.


Inside.  I used the bottom of the white bag to make the pocket. 
15  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bag for my daughter on: February 22, 2009 12:01:52 PM
I just this minute finished this, for my daughter.

Here's the pattern I used.


And here's the bag.  It has a pocket inside, and I'm going to add a velcro strip to close it.

The one with the scissors is mine; the other I made for my sister.

17  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Another denim recon on: December 14, 2008 10:21:31 AM
No great shakes, but I'm happy with it.  It started as a girl's denim skirt I got at Goodwill for $1.99.  The lining is heavy cotton fabric from Ikea, so I had to hand-sew it. 


Interior shot.  There's one interior pocket.


Got the cool spider pin from Etsy.  Everything else came from my stash.
18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recyclin' the jeans, the saga continues! on: August 19, 2008 09:36:30 AM
This is the same style of purse I posted a few weeks ago, but there are a few changes.  Instead of just cutting off the lower leg of the jeans and using that as the bag, I opened the jeans legs along the inside seam and cut two pieces for the purse front and back, making a slightly wider bag.  I also used interfacing, so the purse is less floppy, and added a zippered pocket inside.



19  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Drawstring neck sundress from McCall's pattern on: July 24, 2008 03:20:55 PM
Wish I could remember the pattern number, but I can't without being in my sewing room.  The fabric is a jersey knit.  Excuse the dorky photo!


20  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Been recylin' the jeans again. on: July 06, 2008 09:05:01 AM
And here's the result.  This bag cost me nothing to make but a lot of thread bits in my craft room, a couple of hours, a few bent needles and a magnetic snap and a couple of D-rings.
