You can see the ziptop divider. On the outsides, there are pockets for random things like my calculator and pencils. I made the divider a zip-up pouch so I can stop taking my purse to school without having to worry about my valuables (i.e.: MAKEUP!) falling out. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v331/Trust_No1/100_2016.jpg
That's pretty much it, friends. I'm going to start making these to sell at a local craft festival thing in San Antonio next month. This was just practice, I guess you could say. There are a few noticable flaws, but I'm working on em.
And no, I haven't cut any of the excess thread off. So the bag is still a mess, for those of you who pay close attention.
I was too lazy to sew on Mr. Dinoface, so I used fabric glue. It's boring, but I'm going to add more to it. Eventually. My boyfriend suggested a volcano on the back. I need to go buy brown felt now.
So I saw the other awesome nintendo controller purse by Ilia and decided to make it as a christmas present for my friend. It's no where near as professional looking as her's, but yeah. She loved it, but left it on the floor and a rat ate a hole through it. :S (see http://www.livejournal.com/community/craftgrrl/5495866.html)
I finally got around to fixing it. Haha. I really wanted to do the thumb thing as suggested in a comment, but when I ran it by my friend, I don't think she liked the idea much. So picky... But anyways, I just made an entirely new bag. I was just going to add a new bottom, but I didn't really like the bag to begin with. The interfacing was too thin and the bag itself was pretty big considering my friend carries around few things. So I made the new bag smaller.
So I'm in love with basically ALL of the furniture from Urban Outfitters. I especially like the bedrolls with the platforms, but there's no way I can shell out the money for em. I'm in a shop class at school, so I know I can make the platform, but what about the bedroll? I know (for the most part) how I'd go about making it, but is it really worth it? How much polyfill would you need to fill one of these suckers? Haha. Would it just be cheaper to buy one?
Yup. I wanted a bag to hold all of my school supplies. I've had the same backpack for five years. Figured it was time for a change. It's just a basic tote bag. I put it some pen/pencil pockets and a pocket for my TI calculator. There's also a huge pocket for random things I stuff in my bag on the other side. The lining is just some valentine's print with little red hearts on a white background.
Anyways, I decided to make purses for a few of my cousins and friends for Christmas, but I only have two down so far, so I really need to get going.
The first bag is made from some bandana I bought at walmart the other day, with pink lining. It's the fourth bag I've ever made.
It's a somewhat modified jordy bag. I originally intended for the top to be much smaller than the bottom, but I guess I didn't cut enough off from the top sides. But oh well, I still like the shape. The interfacing I used wasn't think enough though, so it won't really stay up on it's own.
It's about 13-14 inches across and around 9.5 inches high. Only about an inch wide.
The next bag it pretty small. I made it from two other tie-dye bandanas I bought from Garden Ridge a couple of year back. This was the second bag under my belt, but I completely forgot about it until last week. I never finished sewing it all together. Found it under my bed.
I don't know if anyone's done this yet, so sorry if ya have. I originally made one of these for myself, but my boyfriend liked it so I made this one for him. Mine is fluorescent orange with black eyes though. And they have back hatches! Not really hatches, of course, but still cute. I don't have a picture of it though. My camera decided it hated me a few months ago.
