Way cool!! Love the fishnet, the grommets tape, and it's orange!  Cheesy  thanks again jadey! And the strap lenght is perfect. Below a detailed view of the fishnet and grommets:

Then, jadey was so nice to put in the envelope also this two cute button pins, that I immediately put on as i first saw them (the pic is so blurry because i was wearing them, sorry):

Thank you thank you jadey!! You've made my day (i'm writing this everywhere like an obsessed freak haha). This swap was so much fun.  Cheesy

Cimba, your bag is absolutetly great!  I love it so much - your applique-ing skills are amazing, and I love the lining fabric too...really, really nice.

Thanks again for the great bag!

Mariza, you're too kind  Cheesy  Thanks a lot, I'm really happy that you liked the bag...and, my applique-ing skills need still much improvement!  Grin
This is a pic I took before sending the bag (another one here: http://www.livejournal.com/users/cimba/4092.html):

I've jumped on the kanzashi flowers bandwagon and did try to make some. Thank you for the tutorials!

I picked up the ugliest fabrics I could find (ha ha - thing is when I first try to make something I use materials that I'm not worried to mess with) and, obvious to me, I added little poms at the center, instead of buttons or jewels.

The first I made is the white one (it's not actually all white, but ok those pics are obscure I know), which is jersey, and so for he second I thought to use something heavier, like wool (not an heavy one). The third is the worst: I made it with denim and you see, the petals are all saying goodbye each other! Don't know why this happen, I think I have problems when closing the thread with the last petal and merging all of them. How do you do this? Why my petals are so indisciplined?

I fixed the denim one and modified it, and made some more:

7  Little birdy pouch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by cimba on: September 16, 2004 07:01:21 AM

I did it last nigh and it was my very first try with
1. sewing a zip (withouth a zipper foot, ouch!)
2. using interfacing (thanks to my actual boyfriend's mom, who is a seamstress and gave me tons of adhesive interfacing for free, yay!)
3. cutting and sewing felt appliques (appliques in general, indeed)

I am pleased with the result, even if I don't know what my head was thinking about, telling me to use contrasting stitching for the zip and even for the bobin thread! (you can see yourself from the pic how this magnificate my perfectly straight seam Smiley But I keep learning from my errors more and more.

I could never ever do this without some of the tutorials posted here (sushimifune's, jordy's and other's that I can't find to remember now), so thanks girls!

Any feedback is welcome! Smiley

8  Re: First post, first bag - Updated! two more bags in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by cimba on: July 03, 2004 05:41:53 PM

Made these 2 bags in the meanwhile...The blue one is mostly from scrap fabric, colours are quite different from reality, the dark blue is actually lighter. The Rocky bag (named after the label on the pocket, that was from the original pants) is made from a pair of nylon multipocket pants and a stretchy cotton tank top; colours are different here too: orange is actually a salmon orange, and the nylon is a mix of dark green and gray (I think the second pic from the right offers the better approximation). Rocky bag has one pocket on the front, centered, and one on the back, on the left side; both pockets (zippered) are from the original pants...sewing this bag was a little pain, cause the fabric was never enough and I had to cut and re-cut small pieces to fit the size I wanted! But finally, I am pleased by the result, even if it don't came out nice in photos, it seems :) 
These are my second and fourth bags ever; the third one I gave to my aunt and don't have a pic, but I'm planning to do a similar one soon, because it has a rounded shape that I want to exercise on!

Thank you Craftsters for the improvement!
