1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: New bag! on: February 08, 2010 07:31:34 PM
The bag's a really nice shape but I think you probably have one fabric too many in the mix.  Also, watch your bobbin colour, you'd have a better finish if you'd used a brown bobbin when you put your zip in.  If you're not a crazy person like those of us who have gadzillions of bobbins, it's often better to use a beige or light grey rather than black or white if you can't actually match your fabric colour.   keep on sewing.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Matching bags for almost-twins on: January 12, 2010 06:43:35 PM
My friends' twin daughters had daughters of their own very close together.  The two little cousins like to have everythting the same so I made them matching bags. 
After I put the first one together, I decided the handles were too wide for 6yo hands, so I unpicked the absolute bare minimum to get the handles out, then folded them over, sewed down the length and stuck them back in.  I made them a few inches sorter while I was at it.  The handles are much stiffer than they would have been but that's probably a good thing.

There's just so much going on.  I love the movement in them.  I like how you have fallen off the edges of the basic shape.  I particularly like the last one for reasons i can't really articulate except that it makes me happy somehow.  and the second last makes me think of Munch's The Scream.

Oh, that is not cute.  I don't mind bugs at all but this one made me shiver. I think it's the scale of it and the hairy legs. Well done you!

thanks.  my friend was as happy with the bag as the contents, and her daughter wants me to show her how to make one.  Always nice to bring someone new into the sewing fold!

Now, see, I always mean to use my stash , but somehow it just doesn't happen!  If I could just stay away from the store.... 

did that spotty one make you go cross eyed?, bet you blinked a lot while you were making it!

The pink/green one is really sweet.  Is that a belt buckle on the strap? I cant quite make it out

It really is all about the fabric isn't it?  Make a simple design in beautiful fabric and you've got something wonderful.

BTW  I think I'm going to use your quote as my new year theme.  Going to write it big!

What started out as a simple (pillowcase type) bag for a present that was awkward to wrap ended up with a flat bottom with removeable plastic wrapped base and pockets inside and out .
Stripes may make it easier to line things up but they make your brain melt
