1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / DSLR Camera Bag on: April 11, 2010 11:50:15 AM
After scouring ebay for a nice camera bag for my new (to me) DSLR I decided I could make one cheaper and - even better - with custom fabric. I finally finished it last night around midnight. Well, mostly. I'm going to embroider some top stitching around the top of the bag to try and clean it up a bit but other than that it's done. This one is definitely a prototype. I have to figure out a better way of doing the inside. It turned out okay, and is certainly functional, but it's not very pretty. Doing the topstitching to attach the lining to the outside of the bag was almost impossible with the padding in place. I'm going to have to think on that problem some more and see if I can come up with a better way of doing it. In any case, I'm still very pleased with the bag.


Front


Back. One big pocket for wallet, cell phone, keys, etc.


Front inside the flap. There are 6 pockets for lens caps, filters, CF cards, etc.


Inside loaded with my gear (2 lenses, flash, battery charger, camera body w/lens).
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Messenger bag purse/toddler diaper bag on: March 28, 2010 11:15:54 AM
I've had this awesome fabric for more than a year, and just decided what to do with it. It's Amy Schimler for Robert Kaufman from the Forest Fun series. I used the tute here only I didn't make the zippered top and I added dividers to make sections.




The back has one big pocket that holds my wallet.


The front has two pockets for keys and cell phone and misc stuff. Inside there are 5 pocket things. The back left holds a change of clothes for my son, back right has wipes and diapers, front left has my checkbook and calendar, front center is for a sippy cup and the front right holds toys and my son's epi pen. I'm not super happy with the dividers and of course after it was all together I figured out a better way of doing it but oh well. They work.

I'm going to make another one with padding to serve as a camera bag for my SLR next. Then probably a few more to use up other cute fabrics I have in my stash. Smiley
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Tub anti-slip stickers... on: August 20, 2009 02:05:28 PM
Anyone know how to make them? Or have a resource for buying just a sheet of the no slip sticker stuff?
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Curled horn pattern? on: December 13, 2006 03:20:35 PM
I'm making a plush goat for a friend, and heavily modifying the pattern I'm using (it was really simplistic).

I want the horns to be curled around instead of straight up like the pattern has them, but I've never made curly horns before. The main thing is that I don't want the horn to be a flat spiral - I want the center/end of the horn to poke out a bit just like a real goat's would. So the pattern will have to such that when sewn and stuffed it will stay without additional support (i.e., I don't want to wire it).

I don't mind drafting a pattern, but I thought I'd ask and see if anyone knows of a pattern already made I can grab.
