351  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / *Vintage Pink Hairdryer Purse* on: September 04, 2006 12:39:01 AM
Another great thrift store find turned from obsolete to useful. A PINK Tropic Aire dryer turned into a kick ass purse with a leopard print closure and handle. Grin

I hit the jackpot when I found this dryer, I knew just what to do with it. Being a hairstylist, I of course needed a purse from a dryer! This was the kind you use to dry the roller set styles of the 50's.

353  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / *OMG its a Gas Can...Purse?* on: September 04, 2006 12:32:04 AM
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. Grin

354  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / *Record purse - my version* on: September 04, 2006 12:27:36 AM
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. Wink

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!


356  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / *Vinyl & Oilcloth Clock Purse* on: September 04, 2006 12:18:10 AM
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. Grin
357  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / *Craftster inspired skull purse - vinyl* on: September 04, 2006 12:12:42 AM
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!

definately "Blushables", it seems like it could work for an ever expanding line of products. Cheesy
