So, this is my first "thing" ever that I sewed out of a proper material and with lining, and I think it turned out pretty neat. I used an old pair of jeans as fabric. I'm gonna use it as a pencil case for school, my sister already asked for one, too. Smiley

Anni-q, what a fabulous looking pencil case!!!  You did a great job and excellent use of the jeans.  No wonder your sister has asked for one!

I have seen this before - yes, I'm on the Gocco board too.  I believe you had trouble with burning the screen?  Did you end up getting a good burn or did you have someone burn it?  I would have offered (I have an MG11 so no need for bulbs) except I think you needed a screen quickly - I'm in Australia  Sad .

They are absolutely stunning!!  The colours and design work perfectly together!!  Well done. They look identical to your concept picture. Fabulous.  Smiley

Hi Ursel!!  The finished bag itself is approx. 30cm wide x 40cm high (excluding handles).  The gusset is about 10cm.  Handles are about 13cm high. 

The bag 'plastic pattern' that I have is:

52cm wide x 41cm high (from base to bag opening) with handles extending beyond that by approx 14cm and are 14cm wide. 

The tutorial shows cutting the bag in half on the fold so that makes the 52cm width become 26cm on the fold.

Hope this helps.  If not, I can always send you a plastic bag pattern.

45  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Card Holder on: July 23, 2009 06:15:37 PM
After breaking numerous wallets because of too many cards stuffed in it, a friend suggested that I have a separate card holder.  I've seen tutorials online, but I ended up creating my own pattern.  It's about 4 inches wide x 2.5 inches high.  It fits up to about 1/2 inch stack of cards.  I have totally enclosed the side seams, including the lining (not like most card holders that have the sides just folded up and sewn).  Onto the pictures:

Close up of side view and inside lining.  You can see that all the side seams are encased - including the lining, not just folded up and sewn:

Where did you get that fabric on the outside? It's so adorable. Great job all around!

I got it from a fabric shop in a little town called Bowral.  It's in NSW, Australia.  I only had a small piece of it and there's nothing on the selvedge to indicate who made it.  Here's their website:  http://www.myplacebowral.com.au/index.cfm  I've looked through the entire fabric range on their website but can't see it.  You could possibly email them to ask what the fabric is - I'm sure they'd know.

If you are still interested, this is a great tutorial by Kategirl.  Just omit the divider if you don't want it:

Here's some nice instructions on how to make that type of bag reversible:

There's another tutorial floating around on the 'net but it's called a "Grab Bag".  The link above is the only one I've seen which is reversible.

Thanks for your nice comments, Craftydeb.  To answer your question, I didn't use a pattern.  It's just a bunch of measurements in my head then just a matter of sewing the pieces in the right order.   Smiley
50  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Stash-Busting Wallet **with added pics** on: July 21, 2009 02:33:04 PM
It aaaages since I've posted anything.  I've been working full time for the last 6 months and haven't had time to craft.  Feels good to be back!

My old wallet fell apart (as usual, the lining gave way), so in an attempt to start stash busting, I made a new wallet.  It's about 4 x 4.5 inch.  Not all my cards fit because I have too many so I have most of my cards in a small coin pouch.  It has a pocket on one side for the cards and a clear pocket for a photo/id etc.  The other side is a zippered coin purse.  I also made a section for notes.  Next time (if there is a next time), I would change this slightly as the corners on the top on the outside are slightly different than the corners on the bottom:






**EDIT**

I made another one with slight modifications.  I made the tab closure a little tighter fitting which makes the wallet sit a little better.  I also altered the outer and lining to make it sit nicer on the outside.  You probably can't see the difference from the photos, but in 'real life' there is quite a difference:



and the inside:



Thanks for looking  Cool
