1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Decemberists T-Shirt Messenger Bag and Paint Chip Wallet! on: August 11, 2006 05:09:50 PM
oops, sorry i didn't respond sooner.

on how to make the paint chip wallet, there are a couple tutorials online.  this is the one i used: http://www.jesser.org/crafts.php?id=4

and it actually holds up well with heavy stuff because i interfaced it and sewed over the webbing like, 5000 times.  i never usually carry more than 2 big textbooks at a time, but that is true of all messenger bags for me.  i'm a weakling, haha.

If you're gonna make a messenger bag, make sure your shirt is at least a 2XL.  Unless of course you just want a purse messenger bag.  I was dumb and in a hurry so I got an XL and it wasn't big enough.  I had to order another plain shirt from American Apparel.

My sewing machine is usually packed up because I have nowhere to put it, but I wanted to make a new bag for school, so I set it up.  Here it is:




poorly sewn pockets!


lined zipper pocket!


woop!

While I was at it, I decided to make one of those paint chip wallets too!




i lost my old wallet, so i'm pretty low on cards and such

i made sure the glue was really tight and re-glued it, it seems pretty secure for now.  and of course, my sewing machine just decided to break :-(.

and to make it, all i did was use the 'messenger bag with gusset' tutorial, and i put interfacing on the back of the shirt because it was so thin.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / death cab for cutie t-shirt to messenger bag on: September 28, 2005 04:21:05 PM
all of the t-shirts in my home are hiding from me, i am making them all into bags!

so, i've never made a messenger bag, and making this made me realize how much i LOATHE webbing.  i had no heavy-duty needles or anything, so i turned to my favorite adhesive, super glue!  it seems like it's holding up, but we'll see when my bag falls apart and my crap goes all over the school, haha.

bag:

you can't see, but the writing says "We Have The Facts And We're Voting"  and "Death Cab For Cutie"

starry lining and zipper pocket:


me wearing it, ooo, mirror:


i love wearing a democratic bag in nebraska, it got lots of odd looks and questions today, haha.
