IT IS DONE!!! This is my interpretation of NEW LOOK pattern 6574, got the idea from Adorn mag. Anyway this took me forever to complete....I seem to do better with my own patterns, I guess its the rebel in me that hates instructions !! Not to mention, I HATE bias tape.. Anyhow here it is....... My fat quarter, machine pieced and quilted tote!!
I had these two purses ordered, one of them I had to special order fabric... on the special order fabric, drapery fabric, I had such a hard time placing pattern pieces so that the flowers would be shown well.. Then construction was difficult, I think it was just me being "in a mood" anyyyywhooo here they are... Thanks for looking
I have beening sewwwwiiiiiiiinnngg and sewwwwwiiiiinnng the past couple of days and this is one thing that I really like. I made it for my ds's teacher who is due to have her little girl in 3 weeks. It is a cute diaper clutch with a kanzashi flower pin. I decorated a portable wipe container with some **bling** and put it inside with some diapers.. Hope she likes it ..
Okay, I am getting more people wanting purses--NOT COMPLAINING in the least, love designing and making them!!! I am just needing some ideas for pattern storage so that I can find and use my patterns efficiently. The patterns I buy are not the problem, it is the patterns that I design. Any ideas??
Several months ago, not sure how long, there was a post about a rectangular makeup case.... Very similar to one Amy Butler does, but I do believe these cases were made of vinyl.. Not sure if there was a tut for it or just a link to where they found the pattern... I have searched for a couple of days now with no luck.. Anyone remember something like this?? Or am I just dreaming??
This is the first quilted purse that I made, I love it.... I planned to sell it, then I just couldn't let go . Let me know what you think, be gentle as this is the first time that I have posted any pictures of my purses.. Thanks for looking!!!
I especially love the flower and the lining color....
I am a newbie here, though I have been lurking for a month or so just absorbing all the creative bag making knowledge I can !! I have learned so much and found out such good sources from y'all-- thanks.. So I thought that I would ask a questions, surely someone has got to have this answer for me.
Where is the best place to purchase personalized woven labels for bags?? I am wanting to add them to my bags, but haven't found a source. Or do some of you make your own?? I'd need to order mine, because my machine is soooooo standard there is no way I'd be able to make them.. anyway I look forward to any help y'all may be able to provide!
