I've gotta make one of these for my boyfriend--he was carrying a binder clip full of index cards long before he ever head of the HPDA, and I'm sure he'd love something like this! Great job.

That sounds like a good way to start.  Smiley

You're right, Plumpkin, the book lies nice and flat when the pages are opened. But when the book is closed, it looks kind of wedge-shaped. That's all I meant. But it seems like most people don't think that's a problem as far as marketing. Once again, the book is beautiful! Great job!

Wow, mom, that is goooor-geous! Does Charlotte like it? I'm SURE that people would buy these, if you found the right market (maybe check at daycares and preschools?) It looks like it took a lot of time to make, but it would probably be pretty easy to come up with templates for each letter-animal, which would streamline the process. The only thing I think you should modify before you market these is the binding method, so that the book lies flat.

The only question I can answer for sure is YES! you should have a contract, and it should include everything in your agreement. I don't think you need to get it notarized or anything, but you should definitely each have a signed paper copy of your agreement. (IANAL, though.) Good luck!

I've also never done a swap, but I'd be very interested in joining this one. I've bookmarked this thread and I'll keep checking back. Smiley

Sure, go ahead and try to recreate it-- I'm sure this isn't an original design or anything, and it took me about three hours to complete. Yeah, it took some patience, but I think the whole thing would have been easier (although perhaps not as elegantly constructed) if I had sewn each panel separately and then sewn the whole thing together at the end. I think I'm going to stich the loose ends together to form the strap, but then attach a bow to hide the seam. and when I get back to y sewing machine, I'll probably line it and instal a zipper. Thanks for the input and praise!

I found Craftster a few days ago and I've been completely inspired! So, of course, I started a bunch of projects and I've only finished one. I'm going back to school tomorrow, so that means no more sewing machine (dorm is waay to small!)

I wove this purse in about 3 hours last night out of some ribbon I had laying around. The ribbon is kind of yucky-colored, but I had a ton (several hundred yards) of it laying around, so I decided to test out the design with it. Tell me what you think!

The pics aren't color-corect AT ALL...the ribbon is a deep red and navy blue with a thin yellow stripe running down the middle. The purse is basically a box woven of ribbons...no fancy design or anything.

 

I wanted as few seams as possible, so each ribbon wrapped all the way around the sides and/or the bottom of the purse. This picture shows that there's only one seam on the inside of the bag (look on the right side), plus sewing the loose ribbons down along the opening.



I haven't lined it yet...I wonder if I should. It's pretty sturdy, but it gets strechted out of shape easily. And I've just left the ribbons woven into the sides extra long to form a strap, but how should I do the strap? Just tie the ribbons? Sew them together? Suggestions welcome.




Thanks!
-Sarah
