41  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Tote on: May 16, 2007 07:15:01 PM
I made this for a swap, but I really wanted to show it off.  I'm pretty sure my pal doesn't have a Craftster account :-)

the lime on the bottom is actually dip dyed, it's pretty cool.  I cut the flower petals to resemble the pattern in the print and embroidered lil' french knots all over it.

i hope she likes it!!!!!!!!

I'm having trouble with craftster's picture hosting, but it did let me upload one.  You can check the whole thing out on my blog.

I'm completely obsessed with this book!!!  I'm not the best seam(ster)? but the patterns are sooooo easy, they make me feel like a sewing superstar.  I still have to add the pocket, the fabric I bought was wayyyy too thin but I didn't realize it until I got home.

I used fabric I got at JoAnn's.  Even though I think ours is a scary vortex o' nasty, I still found this cool print.  I've ordered some fancy fabric from PurlSoho to make another one.

48  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Another Chinese Charm bag??? on: March 12, 2006 11:48:37 AM
Yep!!!  I used some leftover sirdar chunky, made it a lil' smaller, added a flower, and used an oval handle...

the bag

the lining (i haven't finished sewing, heh)

the flower (from a pillow i saw in vogue)

it kintted up soooo fast... it took longer to sew it up, and line it...  i folded up the center and added some interfacing so there are 2 compartments, you can't see it in the pic  Grin
