2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Stencilled-Camera-Pleated-Tote-Goodness on: October 15, 2008 09:49:16 PM
I needed a bag for school and decided to make this from some clearance denim I bought about a year and a half ago when the Hancock Fabrics Store was closing down the street.

I originally wasn't too keen on using denim since I think sometimes you risk looking kinda cheesy...do you know what I mean?
Anyway, I decided with a really cool stencil I could avoid that, plus the denim is nice and strong to carry around my heavy math textbooks. I love how it turned out, it's the perfect size for all my school junk, but also not breaking my shoulder which is nice.  Wink

Here are a few pics...

All packed up and off to school.  Grin

I wanted to make this quickly, so I just went for super simple, no clasps or anything. I did add a few pen/pencil caddies, plus a little pocket for keys, phone and calculator.


K, this was a nightmare. I had made the srap and got everything done and decided that for the weight of my load, the strap was waayy too long. I went ahead and chopped the strap right in the middle and ended up doubling (technically quadrupling) the fabric and sewing it directly at the top. I'm actually pretty pleased with how it worked out because now it is SUPER sturdy and it gives my shoulder a bit of padding too!


Thanks for looking!

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Record Clock on: October 14, 2008 11:26:47 PM
Hello,
I didn't know if this belonged here or in the reconstructed, so feel free to move it. I've seen the record bowls around here, but hadn't seen this, so thought i'd share.

i melted the record in the oven to make a record bowl and thought how it would be perfect to hang on the wall and a clock-mechanism-thingy would fit perfectly in the back.

hope you like it.
(it's a bob seger and the silver bullet band record and i liked the picture.  Cheesy )

thanks for looking, heather
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pleated Purses/ Totes thanks Bouncyflea (6 pics) on: September 30, 2008 06:13:46 PM
So, last year I found Bouncyflea's amazing tutorial for her <a href="http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=149376.0">Butterflies and Fruit Pleated Tote</a>. I loved the first one I made, so I ended up making 3 total. I gave them to my sister's so now I need to make one for myself. Just thought I'd share since she was so kind to share a tute with us. Please bear in mind that I had *just* started sewing and I these were my first bags I'd ever made, so I was pretty pleased with them.  Smiley  Sorry about so many pics, I just wanted to show each one. Thanks for looking!
