21  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / First messenger bag, actually usable :D (4 pics) on: August 17, 2007 07:19:52 AM
Firstly, credit goes entirely to bluefrue for her messenger bag (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=107673.0) and to gloriana for her tutorial (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=2684.msg18762#msg18762).

This took me hours and hours and hours to make, spread over 2 or 3 weeks, but I think it was worth it, it was really fun to make and I think it turned out pretty well Smiley Definitely the most useful thing I've ever made.

Front of bag:


With the flap open:
(there are 2 pen pockets and a slightly larger one that's perfect for my phone)


Inside:
(there's one large pocket, a smaller zip pocket for keys etc, and one small plain pocket)


And the inevitable action shot:


Any comments would be ace thank you Smiley Hope you all like it.

22  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / How do you stop pockets being flat? on: August 07, 2007 02:00:00 AM
I think I've seen someone ask this on here before but I searched for ages and couldn't find it, so sorry if this is a repeat.

Whenever I try to sew pockets into things they always end up pretty flat, with not much room to keep anything in unless it's really thin... any way of getting around this problem? I just want to add a simple pocket to a bag I'm making, as in a simple rectangle of fabric sewn into the lining, maybe with some sort of closure, but I don't want to end up making the same mistake as usual and have a totally useless pocket...

Any help would be much appreciated.

23  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Ideas for decorating clothes? on: June 29, 2007 06:21:29 AM
I posted this in the general clothes discussion board before I realised this board existed... sorry about that. But I figured I'd post it again here because people who are likely to know about this stuff are more likely to see it here...

So I bought a few plain t-shirts today (red, green, black and white) with the intention of making them a bit more interesting somehow... I don't really want to cut them up or anything, just decorate them somehow... any ideas?

They're sort of the typical, slightly stretchy t-shirt fabric. What's the best thing to decorate them with? Applique? Stencilling? Iron-on transfers? I'm new to decorating clothes, I usually just make simple things from scratch, so I don't really know what works well etc...

Any ideas would be welcome Smiley

25  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Make up bag on: June 19, 2007 01:30:43 AM
Sorry if this is in the wrong place, but I guess a make up bag is pretty much the same idea as making a coin purse or something?

I made this about a year and a half ago so it's a bit more worn than it looks in these pictures, it's served me well in that time! This was one of the first things I ever made so sorry if it's a bit scrappy...

It's lined and has a zip too, sorry the pictures aren't very clear.
