My boyfriend Doug had to do a painting for an exhibition (Flight 2 Gallery Nucleus Art show...April 16th.)
So here is the toy and the painting by Doug that inspired it!

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / smocked black satin evening bag (mini jordy) on: October 01, 2004 11:06:55 PM
and so i'm back, from outer space.... i just walked in with that there look upon my face....
(that's enough of my singing)

been working tremendously hard at the new job,
Here's a little evening bag I made to take out to my father in laws 50th tonight.

I pleated (in the smocking way) the black satin then ironed the smocked peice onto some interfacing around the edges and then cut the piece into the pattern shape.
It's a tiny little bag, just big enough for keys, small purse, lippie and phone.


9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / **now with tute** pleated jordy bag on: September 19, 2004 12:51:08 AM
we love the jordy technique at my house!
I was just fiddling with folding this material and came up with this...


I'm of two minds about topstitching this bag because I don't want lose the form of the pleats at the top  Huh
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tutorial: Skipping bag on: August 28, 2004 01:43:23 AM
the pictures that go along with the tutorial can be found on page 12.

here's a tutorial for the skipping bag I posted here....

okee it's an odd little pattern but if you mark out the base dimensions and the center line then you can put a plate as shown below to get the curve.

2 x Outer fabric
2 x Lining
1x lining for the base
1 x outer for the base

if you plan to use interfacing I don't recomend putting it up the straps because it makes it too stiff to turn out.

in the picture shown my straps are actually two inches wide but that left me with a tiny seam allowance and it was quite tight to turn out the right way at the end so I reccomend going at least 2.5"

Lay out your two peices of lining as shown and stitch up the sides (these will become the centre seams)

open the fabric out as above, matching up the centre seams.

fold up the base as shown and lay over the base and pin together
(my pinning is below - gloriana has a good show of pinning in her messenger bag tute)

Stitch the base to the main part of the lining on three sides only!

Repeat steps two to five with the outer fabric except sew the base on all sides

put the lining inside the outer bag with the right sides together, match the center seams and the straps, pin  and join, sewing completley aroun the top edge (i've show a detail of the strap just so you can see)

Turn the bag inside out through the hole you left in the base of the lining (like the jordy bag) and before you seal it up make sure you push out the end of the straps so you have some neat corners then fold the holes edges in and stitch it closed (again like the jordy bag!)

Press the top edge of the bag and stitch around the top edge and up the straps.

join the straps together at the top (stitching a box and fill the box with an x is strongest) add a decorative button as below.

And you're finished!

decorate as it pleases you....

hope this is useful....
