Wow this is sooo cute!! It's going to have to go on my ever-growing list of projects! I need to stay off Craftster for a day or so, so that I stop coming up with ideas for projectS!!
22  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My very own (albeit wonky) PLEATNESS bag!!! on: March 29, 2008 04:10:50 PM
So after about 2 minutes deliberation I decided to make my very own PLEATNESS bag!! Luckily I already had the fabric and just needed a zipper! So let me tell you a little story about my adventure! Looking over the instructions I didn't think it would be that bad so I started cutting out the pieces....and cutting...and cutting...and...... After an hour I was finally done and in serious need of a nap and some Advil.


After my much needed nap and the resolution of my headache I worked for another hour and this is where I ended up... Not too far..hehehehe



I then decided to put things off till the next day in hope that the little tailor fairies would complete it for me!!

No such luck!! Luckily it only took me another hour and a half the next day to finish it..


Although time consuming this was a realllyyy easy and fun tutorial to follow. My only struggle was with the corners once you sew in the zipper. My first zipper might I add!! So here's the top finished.. The pink zipper was calling my name at JoAnns!

There are a couple little boo boos here and there. Luckily my camera did a pretty cool job of hiding them.

And here's the always needed action shot..

Wow! Those jeans aren't as flattering as I thought. Of course I also had to show off my new tattoo!

And I promised my trusted assistant I would give her some credit!


Now I have some awesome springy, flowered fabric to use on my next one. I plan to tweak a few measurements here and there and make the straps longer next time. Thanks again Applesaregreen http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=178244.0 for sharing this awesome purse with us!

Anyone have any ideas for this awesome fabric I've been holding onto forever??? I already have a sewing machine cover or thats what I'd make out of it! I was leaning towards making a purse out of it because I love it sooo much but I thought that would be a little over the top! Any ideas would be appreciated!

Yeah it will still be green and antique white (Thats their wedding colors). Just different shades of green, I know those colors are kinda bright but my version of Electric Quilter didn't have too many options for green! I'm gonna practice the blocks today with some scrap fabric.
