Sweet ass purse made out of a real 1 gallon red plastic gas can that I got at Sears. The cutting could have been easier if I had a dremel at the time, this prompted me to purchase one. But other than that it was pretty easy. The "hinge" on the back was done out of red plastic lanyard lacing, and the "clasps" on the front are done out of dice and elastic cording.
This is my version of the many record purses that have been cruising around craftster in the past year. I'm so happy with how it turned out, I tried to use the whole record with a handle cut out. But alas it was WAY too brittle, they just crack soon after useage begins. The gusset and handle are made from vinyl with free motion stitching on them and handstitched to the records then lined. It takes a while to do, but it's a hell of a conversation starter.
This is my take on a wristlet/clutch made out of 45rpm records. The handle and gusset of the bag are both made of vinyl with free motion stitching all over them. They have been for sale in my salon and have been a hit, I'm like a proud parent!
I needed a purse for Viva Las Vegas rockabilly weekend this year. I came up with this. A mix of red and baby blue vinyl and floral oilcloth. The clock face is set in clear casting resin hardened for about 30 min and then backed with super glittery silver casting resin. It holds EVERYTHING! Perfect for vegas.
I am a hairstylist and fell in love with the "running with scissors" design. It goes great with my job and with all my craftiness. I used red, teal and brown vinyl. The stitching around the skulls was done with the " free motion " quilting technique. I just love working with vinyl, it rules!
