1  Rock and Roll iPod Case in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Kasizzle on: March 20, 2008 02:21:34 PM
My neice asked me to make her boyfriend a case for his new iPod. I love this fabric, perfect for a guy. All the pieces are interfaced and I put fusible fleece in between the 2 layers. I serged around the outside with wooly nylon thread. It's roughly the same size as a standard wallet, maybe a tad larger.





More details are in my blog

2  Sunday Afternoon Boredom Buster in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Kasizzle on: June 11, 2007 04:50:01 PM
I needed a project to keep myself busy yesterday while waiting for the Soprano's finale. This did the job!
It's an OLD Adam Ant record.

With the drawstrings pulled up. The stripes actually run diagonal on the fabric.


Bottom view.


Inside. It's actually quite roomy! The drawstrings don't show in the pic, but they are pretty basic. I was thinking about putting beads on the ends of the cords.

Finally finished mine!!! Thanks for your tutorial. I would have never attempted this project without it. My dimensions are different, my cans are cut a little larger. I reccomend buying a cheap paper cutter if anyone else is attempting this. And warm up your hammering hand, it's alot of hammering! My husband proudly hung it in his "billiards" room!





By the way, does anyone know how to make my pictures smaller?

4  Finally. A toiletry bag that will hold all (some) my stuff! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Kasizzle on: May 18, 2007 06:35:38 PM
I went out of town last weekend and finally got tired of small ugly make-up bags that don't hold all of my products.







I lined with a layer of basic cotton and vinyl. I ended up attatching the lining by hand. Yuck! Vinyl is really hard to get a hand needle through. I think I have a hole in my middle finger from pushing the needle through.

You certainly inspired me! Thanks for the tutorial.
Here's my version.





Lining. Taste the rainbow!


I used iron on vinyl, but ended up not fusing it on the candy bag. Every time I touched the iron to the candy bag, it bubbled up no matter how cool the iron was. Fortunately, I like Skittles and I had more bags!

6  CBGB t-shirt to tote bag recon in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Kasizzle on: April 03, 2007 04:14:23 PM
 Recently I bought a t-shirt re-con book called "Tease" for my daughter, but I haven't been able to turn it loose. I've had in my head for some time trying to make the purse from the book, but I couldn't find big round handles that would look good with my favorite t-shirt. I came across this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=158779.msg1592883#msg1592883 and thought fabric handles were a stroke of genius, so I borrowed the idea.

Thank you all for your kind words, this has been harder than I imagined. I did stay with her while she was euthanized, it was the most peaceful I had seen her in a long time. She finally had a smile on her face.
My kids and I loved the idea of a stepping stone to put out in the yard. Here is what we came up with, engineered mostly by my 10 year old son. That is a paw print in the middle.

8  Retro Flower Print Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Kasizzle on: March 20, 2007 12:49:21 PM
I found this great fabric at the local quilt shop and couldn't wait to make something with it. I used Butterick pattern 4409, but made several alterations to it (made it bigger). I also made a cell phone holder in a coordinating fabric that I used as bias trim on the purse.

This picture looks like the bias is all twisted and ugly, but I think it's just the way the purse is sitting.

Inside are 2 pockets, but they are hard to see.

Thanks for looking and I love to hear feedback.

*EDIT* 3/31/07

 I've also made an ipod holder to match!

10  Skull ipod holder in Completed Projects by Kasizzle on: March 13, 2007 07:20:57 PM
My niece had a naked ipod and being the caring aunt that I am, I created this case for her. This is roughly attempt number 5, I think maybe the fabric is printed off-grain. No matter what I did, the little skull guys never lined up. Good thing I bought plenty of fabric to play with. I also made a smaller case for for the other niece's nano.
