1  Re: Now I can walk! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by lulu9527 on: July 07, 2009 02:52:49 AM
Thanks for the comments.

It's a printed interfacing panel from http://www.quiltsmart.com/khxc/index.php?app=ccp0&ns=prodshow&ref=fun_cellbag.

I don't think you can find that fabric anymore,if you can it's probably limited.  It's "Toy Box Designed by Johnny Karwan" I have the marble in red & green and the jacks in red, green & yellow.  Now I wish I had bought more because I'm running short. I also made a diaper bag out of it

2  Now I can walk! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by lulu9527 on: July 06, 2009 05:56:39 PM
When I go for my walks, I always end up carrying my cell phone - what a pain.  I remembered that a few years ago I ordered a cell phone bag pattern from quiltsmart.  The pattern is right on the interfacing. This went together so quick.  I put an extra long strap on it so I can wear it across the body.  I hope you like it!


There is a pocket for my cell phone and a pocket that holds my medical id card, or you could put a driver license in there.

Comments good or bad are much appreciated.

3  Re: My favorite Not-So-Diaper Bag Pattern in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by lulu9527 on: May 14, 2009 05:34:03 PM
I bought that pattern to make a diaper bag and when I got it done, I thought it would make a great handbag. 

Here's the one I made.

I love that pattern

4  Carson's Diaper Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by lulu9527 on: November 02, 2008 05:25:22 AM
I used Craftapple's diaper bag pattern and made this for my soon to be here grandson.  I wanted to use a fabric that wasn't too babyish, so I used marbles and jacks from the Toybox Fabric Collection by Johnnie Kawan.

I would appreciate any comments - good or bad.  Thanks!

Front View

The outside pocket

The larger inside pocket (and a covered zip lock bag I included)

The divided inside pocket that holds bottles and the cell phone packet

The main flap closes with a magnetic snap and the cell phone pocket has Velcro on the flap.  It really holds a lot.  I filled it with bottles, pacifiers, baby wipes, lotion, ect.... and there was still room.

Hope you like it!

5  Quilted Carry All in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by lulu9527 on: September 26, 2008 07:32:56 PM
I haven't posted in awhile since my bags generally do not appeal to most here, but I'm really proud of this one and I hope you like it.

I used this pattern http://henriettashandbags.com/quilted_carryalls_pattern.html to make a bag to carry on the plane (on my way to Jamaica!!)

If I make another one, i would change a few things, but I am pleased with how it turned out.  I might make the smaller one and carry as a purse.  There are 8 pockets and 3 of them are divided.   

This side pocket on the inside is divided in thirds

This shows one of the end pockets and the coin purse.  It's attached with a tiny d ring and swivel hook. 

This is one on the outside end pockets.

6  Ladybug Lunch Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by lulu9527 on: August 10, 2008 09:12:35 AM
Thank you to the crafter that posted the link to this pattern.  I used fusible fleece on the outside fabric.  The lining is just simple black ripstop nylon.  I added a pocket to one side to keep my water mix-ins and splenda.  I hope you like it.  Comments, good or bad, are appreciated.

7  I know where my thread is in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by lulu9527 on: August 10, 2008 08:57:53 AM
I got this idea from a post here, but I'm sorry I can't find it right now to give credit.

I don't have as much thread as others, but at least it's all in 1 place now.  If my supply grows, I can always reconfigure and add more screws.  I found more thread after I took these photos, it was stuffed everywhere.  No wonder I kept buying the same colors!

Thanks for looking

8  Camo DVD Player Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by lulu9527 on: June 15, 2008 04:31:31 PM
I made this dvd player bag for my grandson to take on vacation.  He picked the camo for the outside and the lining is US Marine Corp logos.  I put fusible fleece on the outside fabric and the lining.  It holds the dvd player and 4 dvds, has pockets for the car adapter, ac adapter & battery.  I hope you like it and leave a comment (good or bad).

9  Brody's Book Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by lulu9527 on: June 14, 2008 04:33:33 PM
A simple drawstring book bag I made for my 2 year old grandson.  It's smaller than most bags like this since he is only 2 and I didn't want him tripping over it.  I'm didn't want the strings long, but I made them too short - so back to the fabric store for more cording to redo it.    But otherwise, I'm really pleased with how it came out. 

I used this for a guide, but changed the size, added a lining, changed the casing .... http://sewing.about.com/od/freeprojects/ss/stringbackpack.htm

Comments or constructive criticism is appreciated.

Draw up

Lining (really does look like fireworks)

10  Bright Beautiful Mini Charmer Tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by lulu9527 on: June 08, 2008 03:07:25 PM
This is the mini charmer tote from quilts illustrated.  I used alien invasion charm pack from moda.  It's a little shorter than it's supposed to be because I didn't follow the directions (was I supposed to read those!)  Will have to get a button for the front pocket, but I still love it.  Hope you like it too.



Inside Pocket:

It looks a little crooked laying down, but it's actually straight (that must have been an accident!)

Thanks for looking.  Comments encouraged
