So, are those magnets to be sewn to the inside, to be invisible closure basically? If so, that's just awesome I'd definately give that a shot.
I made my April bag tonight. I'm going to be making more, as I finally got my hands on a bolt of Craft Fuse, so now my Works In Progress can become Finished Objects
Here's the first - I want this trim in every color of the rainbow, it's so awesome, and so easy to apply!
I call her....Diva
I think I'll carry to work tomorrow to show off It feels so "look at me" when I do, but I ALWAYS get comments Plus, if I use one of my zipper pouches to actually carry my goods, then the purse doesn't get that "used" look of having loose stuff in it. Somehow, even though I don't carry food, I get crumbs at the bottom of every purse I use. You'd think I held it under my mouth while I ate!
Woo! Took a short hiatus, then received my swatches (apparently, they're discontinuing the service, I'm sad!) and got inspired. Not a purse, but a bag This is the worst picture ever in my collection, but I have no CD's for my camera (it's my dad's, all high tech and high res fab, but uses mini cd's and I have used them all up!). so, here's a scanned pic of it. The fabric is a nice, mid-toned grass green with blues and greens, and the flower is from a giant bag of faux lei's I found at the thrift store about 8 months ago. This is just a zipper pouch, and I wish you could see the zip, it's a nice light green that's really fun with the fabric. I'll take more pics later and edit this post so you can see the funky interior too. Technically, I'm wondering if it's not a type of flooring, but maybe it's just a nubby upholstery.
I received GORGEOUS jewelry from ebeth! Thanks so much! She "threw in" earrings, because I needed something to go with the pretty necklace she made LOL Ok - I tried to take good shots, ebeth you should post yours too! The silver is so shiny my flash seemed to take out the detail, and no flash resulted in super dark pics. So here's the bestest I got....
Necklace Action Shote
Earrings lying down, taking a break
The best detail shot I could get
Best detail shot I could get of the necklace
I adore the fact that they're not matchy matchy, but they coordinate perfectly. AND the earrings don't match, but they do, ya know?
THANKS! I have one more - this and the polka dot one were supposed to be done for Valentine's Day, but I was laid up with chicken pox (gah! an excuse to learn amigurumi! The people at work officially believe I'm crazy, because of all the little stuffies on my desk now), so I'm finally getting around to them....
Pretty butterflies, and EVIL interfacing that needs to burn in HELL!!!! BTW GirlyGirlBags, this stuff MELTS through your fabric if your iron is too hot. This might be common knowledge, but twas common knowledge I did not posses. Never, Never again. Now...*pokes around stash* where is my beloved craft fuse?
Heh, so I like polka dots, I was super excited when someone ordered this. But honestly, it was a pain, because I just learned arigurumi while I've been sick (adult chickenpox, ACK!), so I'm aching to get back to my green flying pig
Anywho - here it is.....in all it's polka and dotted glory
The envelope in there is just a card that goes out with all my orders
