3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / We are Sequiny and we are proud- bags! on: February 01, 2005 11:14:08 PM
Ahhh feels good to post stuff again! In my never ending crusade to procrastinate and not study for my Roman Art exam I will share with you two lovely bags!

My friend Tori loved this bird bag I made for her b-day the other day. The birdie is made out of felt and adorned with a couple of sequins on the wing. I used real canvas fabric and an Alexander Henry blue lining. Oh plus a pocket and a funky velcro. I hate glued velcros, ugh.

Starry canvas down here is the same concept as the previous one but heavier on the sequins (and that's bad WHY?Huh) Unfortunately, canvas fabric frays easily at the ends, so the outline of the star is not as neat as I would like it to be.

I am so happy to be making bags and crafts once again! Hooray for old sewing machine bought at Goodwill!  Grin
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / And you shall know as the Sequined Clutches... on: February 01, 2005 11:04:48 PM
Hello kiddies! It's been a looong while since I haven't posted any of my bags, because, well, I haven't made any. But I recently acquired a new (well old) sewing machine and have been postponing studying to bring you guys good goodies!

This one I used real canvas and a cool plaid fabric i got from an Old Navy skirt. And sequined it to the max! It's about 7-8 inches wide.

Little green here is much smaller. I was mostly trying some techniques out. It's green corduroy I found at a scrap bin in my school and a cute lining fabric I bought back home in Puerto Rico.

Hope you enjoy! (sorry for the big pics)
5  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Advice on organizing a craft fair? on: October 10, 2004 09:11:54 PM
********* Hello, I originally posted this on the Georgia forum, but I thought I need some suggestions from this thread. *******


You know, the other day I stumbled upon www.depart-ment.com, and I thought it would be neat to bring that concept into Savannah, organize a quarterly "craft-fair/store" here in Downtown (which is where I live, and I only have a bike grr). But seeing as I've never even come close to organizing any activity in my life, an idea popped into my head.

I've been enrolled atthe Savannag College of Art and Design for three years now and I have not seen an all-encompassing fair/sale featuring artwork/crafts from ALL majors combined. It's usually separated by department. (for example, the Jewelry dept has its annual Trunk Show). The college has a store, ShopSCAD, at Bull and Charlton, where students can sell their work, and although I haven't searched into this, I'm sure they do a meticulous job at selecting which artwork would look nice to tourists and prospective freshmen (you know how it goes). I must admit, the majority of the stuff is real nice, but they're all basically from graduate students or alumni. I would love to see the work from CURRENT students, the crafts they create, the photographs, the clothing, the jewelry. The college doesn't market this at all.

My idea is to organize a little event where all students who wish, can sell their stuff, whatever it may be. I have no idea how this will be carried out, as my mind is not well atuned to the laws and rules of event-coordinating. At first I thought, this could be held at one of the dorms... but, trust me, students don't buy other students artwork. Mostly cuz we broke! So it probably has to be held outside the dorms, open for the Savannah (and of course tourist) public.  I believe that's a good way to get the feel of the college and hey Savannah in general. Because, for better or for worse, Downtown Savannah is owned by Paula Wallace, president of SCAD. That's just the truth.

**************************

Anybody have any tips, experiences, no-no's regarding an event like this? Could you share some websites where I can also look more into this and learn about this process?

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / "Bobby Joe went to play soccer one day" Bag! on: August 18, 2004 12:04:19 AM
Hello! I'm having too much with this whole bag making shindig!

Here's the latest in the Sixtopus series (so much more designs swimming in my head!) It's a messenger bag created with the Messenger Bag Gusster tutorial on this forum. It features little Bobby Joe playing soccer. Bobby Joe is a Sixtopus because he lost two of his tentacles. His first was lost while playing his favorite sport and the second tentacle... well... let's say you should always look both ways when getting off a bus in the middle of a busy street. Bobby Joe sure learned his lesson!

Nonetheless, Bobby Joe continues to play soccer as evidenced in this lovely bag, measuring about 12" long, 11" tall and 4.5" deep! UNfortunately I couldn't keep as it was for my good friend CYnthia Sad
