161  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: toiletry bag on: August 12, 2007 12:46:18 PM
thanks for all the feedback.  Smiley

this bag is for my friend's husband.  I don't know him real well at all - only met him 2 x over the last 14 years. . . .eeks.

so i thought a toiletry bag would be nice.  i know my dh's is getting kind of worn.  hmmm, maybe i should make him one, too, lol.

right now i'm working on a pretty hand bag/totebag for my friend.  i'll have it finished soon and i'll post it.

i have aspirations to make an american girl sleeping bag complete wtih snap on pillow for the 8 year old and a 'treasure hunt' bag for the 12 year old. 

then i really should work on gifts for my 2 aunts,  2 uncles and my cousin - they're who i'll be staying with in the middle of nowhere (i camp on their mountain top.)

the aunts and cousin are VERY crafty people so it's harder for them.  i want to impress them, ya know?  Smiley

found the tutorial!

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=137930.0

btw, it really was as easy as the op described!

i forgot to add the strap so that's why mine is attached differently.

I found a tutorial here online i can't figure out where it is now - i read these things and really need to bookmark them.

anyways, i made my pattern piece 17"x24"

This is what I ended up with:









the one thing i want to do to it is finish the 2 raw edges with some folded over fabric to make it nice inside.  otherwise, i think it looks good and will make a nice gift.  (i'm visiting some friends i haven't seen in over 4 years and need to have a gift for the guy, my friend, and their 2 kids. . .. )  one gift down. . .. .

forgot to add:

on e the second one - add a place for a key ring (maybe a clip ring or carabiner?) to attach easily.

that second one is so small it'll be the 'goto' wallet - and one only needs a wallet (with id and credit card) and keys for quick errands. . . .

i really like them - particularly the second one, actually. 

one suggestion, though - would be to move the snaps a wee bit on the second one, because when one stuffs a wallet full, it would be hard to snap it shut if there isn't give.

all the store bought wallets - very similar to the one you made (only mine are pleather or leather or some kind of vinyl, lol) they have about a finger gap in the snap around part when the wallet is totally empty.

jsut a suggestion.  Smiley

i've been meaning to reverse engineer one of my favorite wallets and i think after seeing yours in cool cotton prints, i will do just that - so i can have a 'true' pattern to use.  Smiley

i'd guess i'd pay up to $15 for a wallet that was well made and hand crafted.  Smiley

you, know what?!

I'm STILL using this bag and it's come in VERY handy!!  Medical people recognize the symbol on front and know it's for emergency use.

it also ended up being big enough to hold a sippy cup, snack cup, and cloth diaper and 2 washcloths, along with a bag for dirty diaper.  PERFECT for sunday school !  Smiley

thanks for finding tha tlinik!  that is what i used.



the above is the pattern i made.  hope it is readable.  Smiley

the boys are just about done flinging lunch all over so must go clean up them and the kitchen. ..

thanks ya'll for looking and posting your comments.  Smiley

i'm new to sewing stuff like this.  i only started sewing a year ago because disposable diapers cost so much that i thought surely i could figure out how to sew those cute cloth diapers for cheaper than i could buy them. . . and my sewing stemmed from there. Smiley

i got the fabric at joann's.  i thought it was really pretty with the embroidery on it.

i learned i like iron on interfacing better than sew in - the sew in one made my bag floppy, whereas the one in the pics, i used iron on.  (I made 2 bags, lol)\

Someone posted a tutorial (i'm totally sorry i'm blanking on who right now) and i took that idea and made one to the dimensions i wanted.

it was my first attempt and i think it turned out pretty good - i want to make it taller next time and not quite so wide, though and i forgot to put a handle on it.  oops.

here are the pics.

it's for my son's 'stuff' when we go on our camping trip soon.









I really enjoy reading all the posts here.  it's very hard to find typing time though to reply as i have 2 young children that are special needs and they are quite a handful. . ..

thanks for looking at my stuff.  Smiley
