101  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Is it a hat or a purse? How to turn a boo-boo into something else!(img heavy) on: April 17, 2006 04:20:15 PM
I had some spare yarn so I decided to make a little hat with a ruffly brim. I used a 2-ply leftover yarn from an afghan project mixed with  some eyelash. I had no pattern so I thought I would just wing it...I remember drinking a LITTLE wine, but holy mackerel, who's head did I measure?

Here is a pic showing how small the "hat" was--remember that it was suppose to fit down over my head and ruffle around my face!

So, after seeing all of the cute yarn purses in the purse room, I had the brilliant idea to turn it into a purse!
I crocheted a handle, lined the thing, and then made a drawstring to close it! TA-DA

...the inside

and finally--hubby says it still looks like an upside down hat!!!!!

Oh well--goes to show that even experienced people make big boo-boos! So craft on and enjoy!!

I saw this fabric and had to have it. Then I saw another fellow purse maker's bag and knew that it was destined to be a bag...as I am new to purse making, this has a simple velcro close and a basic pocket and zippered pouch...I learned that vinyl will melt--had to do the handles twice! ha ha

Now everyone thinks I am weird when I kiss my purse....muah Elvis!

103  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Dreaming of the Beach--Fun Pin-up Beachy Bag on: April 16, 2006 01:55:39 PM
This was my second bag. I drew the size shape and size on the back of some old wallpaper paper. The fabric is a fun pin up print that I found on the Internet.  The inside is a remnant that I also used it to make a pocket to hold my keys, sunglasses, swim pass, etc.  The bag is BIG to hold a towel, swimsuit, and suntan lotion--now all I need is HOT weather!!

As this is my second attempt at photos, please let me know if I have screwed anything up please!  Thanks for looking...

I used umpteen tutorials from this section so I have many people to thank for doing all the hard work for me! I made this from fabric that I have had in my stash for years.  It is vintage fabric from the 70's that I got from Panama and is based on the molas that the Cuna Indians make.  I made it for my sister as a surprise since she went to high school in Panama.

Inside is lined with green stripey stuff(crafster tutorial!) and has pockets and a zippered pocket(another crafster tutorial!).  Thank you everyone--I am now addicted to making bags (I still knit and crochet but this is a nice change.)
