1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Friendship purse (first purse i've lined) on: July 12, 2007 05:01:40 PM
Ok a few years ago i had to move and leave most of my friends behind and i missed some things like two of my friends gave birth one to my nephew the other to my godson so i made this purse for them not all of my friends are on this purse but i hope the ones that are will like it.
and this is the first purse that i have ever lined

this is the front of the purse


the back


one side


the other side


the lining i used snaps on the ribbins to close it


i used Velcro to secure the lining in so if something is spilled in it you can take the lining out and wash it and it hides a pocket

ok this is my new purse. I didnt line it but i made a pocket for it. i think i came up with an idea on how to line it so maybe i might do that in my next purse.











the shoulder strap


the pocket on the inside



the bottom of the purse i put this pic on the bottom in case i go out and there are kids around.

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Paper book purse with tutorial lots of pics on: June 22, 2007 12:15:55 AM
ok first you need a book. I chose Illusions cause i've had it forever and never got around to reading it and i know i wont


ok you need to rip the pages out that you will be using


i chose to fold it in fours (sorry if you cant really make out the pic i used the flash)


i line the folded pages up and put a piece of tape at the bottom of each page so it easier it weave the paper through it


then i start weaving the pages together


there will be extra pieces of paper that aren't covered when you are done weaving the pages just cut off the extra pieces


cover the whole side with tape.


turn it over and tape the back too.


cut the extra tape off. then i cut four more pieces of tape and put it on the edge of one side and tape it to the back so it covers the edges.


repeat those steps until you have all five sides of the purse don't forget to make two of the sides and the bottom smaller then the other two sides.

when you are done with that line the seames up like this.


tape the seames together


then use clear tape on the seams on the other side

then fold up and start taping it together. if one or two sides are taller the the other wait until you are don't taping then cut it till they are even.


when done with that i decided to make the handle out of the pages too i just took two pages and folded them and taped them together. and i taped it to the inside and outside of the purse


the end result




im sorry if i didn't do a good job at the tutorial this was my first one

it wont let me post pics but please look at both links

I like doing mirror images (or close to mirror images)

Note to self when you stuff the hearts it takes up room in the purse.
