I've just recently opened on etsy and would love some feedback from all the crafty folk here. Good or bad, I can take it! What do you think of my purses, bags, pillows? What about my prices, info, descriptions, bio?
There are so many great crafters on this forum and I would love feedback and any advice, criticisms etc.
Also I've been trying so hard to be good and only use what's in my stash, so this is what I came up with:
I straight line quilted all over the outside. The bag has cotton batting as an interlining. The construction took a bit of fiddling around with to be sure the batting didn't interfere with the drawstring closure.
Here's an interior shot:
It has a big interior patch pocket.
So, what do you guys think? Especially thoughts on the fabric combo would be great. I love feedback! Thanks in advance!
Everything went wrong making this bag - I was so in love with the lining fabric and so excited about using it, then had disaster after disaster (won't go into it - lots of looonng stories!).
Anyway, now it's finished... I think I hate it. Grrrrr. At the last minute I changed my mind about the height of the bag so made it shorter, so now the inside pockets are too high! Wanted a tapering A-line shape and I think it's not obvious enough, also think it's too thin and tall, there's something ugly in the proportions somewhere...
Here are pics, could you guys criticise? Tell me what's wrong with it.... thanks!
Bag outer, the button is decorative it closes with a magnetic snap fastener, and the applique is made from the lining fabric:
Inside pocket and beautiful lining fabric:
Other inside pockets, for sketchbook and pencil... see how stupidly high they are...
I love the shape of this bag http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=3105.0, so I made it a bit bigger, and with a longer handle, coz I prefer a "hands-free" type of bag. The fabric is Ikea, I love the bold print. Any comments and criticisms? please! Here's the action shot:
...and here's the inside, it has a slash pocket on one side, you can just see the pocket in this pic, it kinda blends in.
Hi - this is my first completed projects post, so feel free to let rip with comments, criticism etc.
This is my first ever Jordy bag, I made it for my sister
Three Jordys later, and lots of tinkering with strap length and width and types of interfacing, I made these two bags, a jordy style messenger and an a-line jordy which is lined with a very colourful folk art style fabric.
and a few zippered pouches, just for the helluvit,
They're lined with the same fabric as I used on the embellishments.
