1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: Hard Bottom Inserts on: August 20, 2006 05:11:54 PM
Corrugated plastic can be purchased at Blick's http://www.dickblick.com/zz132/00/ and it cuts like butter.

I first create the exterior, then I use spray adhesive on the insert (corrugated plastic) to adhere to the bottom. Then the interior lining can be attached. The plastic is not only adhered to the fabric itself, but is also sandwiched between the exterior and interior fabrics.

Yes this is my own pattern, a very basic box of sorts. Which allws for easy variations. Stabilizer used is VERY stiff. Pellon brand stuff didn't do it for me. I purchase 50 yard rolls of embroidery stabilizer to keep the bags stiff (my preference).
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Goat Skin? on: August 11, 2006 07:17:34 PM
My husband just walked in the door with a bag full of processed goat skins (black). Thinks he is funny in asking for me to make him some chaps!  Cheesy

It is about as thick as some of the vinyl I have worked with, but does anyone know if there are any other precaustions or measures I should take in using it. Can't wait to make a bag!

I rummage through wools, felt, and dark fabrics while the central air does it's thing. I do mamange to slip in something a little brighter just to make the days go by easier. I have been sewing like a mad woman, thinking about doing a craft or trunk show this fall, and I will need to be prepared.

Made from new fabric

Recycled from a wool skirt purchased at GoodWill

Recycled from an old pair of jeans (mine)

The bag looks great! I too just finished a bag from recycled jeans, except these were mine. I have such fun creating from found or recycled fabrics.

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recycled turtleneck lives on as ... on: July 30, 2006 03:17:15 PM
I made an impulse purchase of fabric. Over $20+ per yard. Somedays I don't know what I am thinking. Great fabric, I really like it. I think the handbag turned out pretty good. The recycled turtleneck comes into play with the lining. There was a stain on the sleeve but I loved the color so I hide it in my stash. I was rummaging through my fabric stash when I came upon the turtleneck (cotton knit). What a combination, the most expensive fabric I have ever cut in to mixed with recycled clothing.
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: process for making multiple bags? on: July 29, 2006 07:17:58 AM
I try not to make too many duplicates but I do assembly line process but with similiar color ways. So if I am working with blue fabrics I may make three different kinds with minimal thread changes.

This bag looks very professional and a great job on the interior zipper too!

I love them! I am always looking for something different, and this is it!
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Finally completed: Peter Max Handbag on: July 22, 2006 06:21:09 AM
Dimensions: 12"W, 8.5"H, 3"D

Handles were attached with a coordinating grograin ribbon that is stitched between the exterior and interior fabrics.

Key fob hardware was purchased on eBay

Interior was completed using stone washed denim. I grew up in the era of Peter Max and the Yellow Submarine, so when I thought about it, jeans finally came to mind.
