greatest idea for a quilt EVER.
when I saw it on the front page, I thought it was just a pervet stenciled tshirt which was absolutely amusing... but an entire quilt of the Office?
you are completely awesome. Grin

BTW, is that your couch in the background of one of the pics? If so I LOVE IT!

I wish I could say that it truely is my couch, but it kind of mostly belongs to my cat haha  Wink

I was actually kind of nervous about the sewing machine getting through the denim and things... as it is from the late 80s and hasn't been used or anything for so long, but it was such a trooper and got the job done, so I'm considering myself lucky!

Hi everyone!

For my cousin's 20th birthday, her sister and I spent several hours making her a Mad Hatter bag. We found a fabric piece from the Disney movie at a Walmart on our last forrage to the States, and it pretty much screamed Tanya (she's been obsessed with the tea party scene and the mad hatter from Alice in Wonderland for forever now, so it seemed like a good theme to go with). I should mention now that we are not specifically adept at sewing... so we had to search craftster for an easy tutorial for a bag that my cousin would actually use. She's usually pretty picky about her purses and theres specific qualifications (pocket size, strap length, ect) that are required. Thankfully, I ended up finding a really well made tute by Lady Bag!! You can find it, along with her tutes for piping and magnetic snaps here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=178582.0






These are the only pictures I took before we gave it to her (did I mention that we left this until the weekend before her birthday... yeah) I'm sorry if the quality isn't good! Undecided



the front pocket


the main pocket (not opened fully, I could fit 2 large bags of cookies, another smaller bag and some Alice figurines in there, as well as a card... so its pretty hefty  Smiley



the button that doesn't actually do anything! \o/


In all, there are 8 layers of fabric. The lining is a red thin cotton, the main part of the bag is actually black denim, and the chevrons are a stripey fabric that I found at my local value village a couple of years ago. The main pocket and the front pocket have an iron-on interfacing, as well as a sew-in interlining for added durability. Also, the pocket and main pockets of the bag both have those super fancy magnetic snaps. We decided to opt out the hoops for the strap, as well as the edging around the main pocket of the bag.

As I mentioned before, we're both pretty novice when it comes to sewing and interlining(we prefer glue guns and safety pins  Grin), so we're both super proud that it came out the way it did. I hope you guys like it! It's not perfect, but we figure that it's a mad hatter bag and it deserves to be a little wacky and imperfect  Cool Cheesy
