333  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / springtime in tokyo tote on: January 14, 2006 01:36:50 PM
This is my "Springtime in Tokyo" tote, inspired by an awesome creation of PucchiMaiko's: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=64504.0. The 'geometry' is a little different cos I couldn't figure out how big/little to make the squares, but I'm happy with how it turned out Smiley The exterior is made out of pink and platinum fat quarter brocades from JoAnn and the interior is made of light green dupioni silk. The closure is a cute little frog clasp.

the lining isn't as loosey-goosey as it looks in the pic:

comments and criticism welcome:) thanks for looking

hehehe my dog gets mad sometimes when I dress her up. lol You should see  the picrures of her in a santa hat...she's p-i-s-s-e-d in them. lol
 Your dog is cute as a button!
Was the sweater very hard to make? I'm intersted in trying to knit one for my pooch. Is the pattern online by any chance?
It's actually a modified version of the cowl n' howl doggie sweater in Debbie Stoller's Stitch n' Bitch. Basically you measure from the top of one shoulder to the top of the other to get the width of the back panel, then measure the length from your doggie's neck to their little bee-hind for the length of the back panel. For the underside panel, you just measure around the biggest part of their ribcage and subtract the width measurement of the backpiece. I dunno if that made much sense..but for example Maggie's chest is 21 inches around(she's a very chubby boston:))so her back panel was 14 inches, her chest panel was 7 inches, and I made  both panels about 10 inches long. Then you seam up the sides, leaving a gap for each 'arm'. I pretty much winged the turtleneck since I only had straight needles, but what I did was cast on the number of stitches for the width of both panels, for Maggie, that was 90sts. I made several more rows in stockinette while gradually decreasing to a point, then made the rest of the collar in a 3X3 rib. Next you sew the side seam on the collar, and sew the wide end to the front end of the sweater. Hunt down some unsuspecting animal, pull it over their head, and snap pix!haha

1 skein of Red Heart Supersaver in Pinata, a pair of size 8 needles and a week later I subjected my poor dog Maggie to this superbly unflattering rainbow-riffic sleeveless turtleneck. There comes a time in every child's life when they must wear some horrible sweater their mother made...

long story short: long time lurker, inspired by all the talented people on this forum, finally got a digicam:

this yellow bag was one of my very first projects, and boy was it a pain to make:
and the inside:

next up is this poor little skipping bag. I think I'll knit a couple of flower pins for it:
I used one of the nifty magnetic snap tutorials for the closure, and managed a cute little jeans-style pocket:

and now for my pride and joy, an embroidery project that took up weeks of my summer break:
a detail of the flystitching and bullion knots:

more to come! it's so exciting to be able to share all the projects inspired by this site:)
