1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bag For My Mom. on: March 02, 2009 06:17:13 PM
My mom is going to Florida tomorrow (lucky her, we got at least 8 inches of snow today!), so I made her a bag.  It's the tiny happy shoulder bag and the fabric is from Wal-Mart.  I made a bag for a swap out of the same fabric and she loved it, so I used it for hers as well.  It has a covered button and a pocket on the inside.  Hope you like it, C&C are welcome!

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Grande Revival Flea Market Bag on: January 27, 2009 01:45:50 PM
I am going to start in on this bag this evening, and I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with this pattern.  I've read a few reviews, but nothing really extensive...People said they had trouble with the handles, and I was just wondering if this was the case with everyone?  Thanks ahead of time for any help you can give me!
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / How do you install the zipper foot? (Kenmore Mini) on: January 06, 2009 05:12:48 PM
I have a Kenmore Mini Ultra, which has always been good to me...that is until today!  I ordered a zipper foot from Sears and it came in, but I have absolutely no idea how to put it in.  Does anyone have any ideas/advice on where to look for this?  Please let me know!  Thanks ahead of time!
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / one more Charlie bag...not so many pics! on: November 29, 2008 12:05:36 PM
My sister just started selling Avon, and she asked me to make her a bag to carry all of her catalogs around in.  I love the Burda Style Charlie bag pattern, so she picked out the material and here it is:

Then I surprised her and made this little snap pouch (using the easy peasy snap wallet tutorial!) to store her money and whatnot in:

Thanks for looking!
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Charlie Bags- sooooo many pics! on: November 29, 2008 11:57:27 AM
I made these for the "Make Me a Reuseable Shopping Bag" swap.  I had to much fun making them.  I made one for my partner, one for her mom, and one for her daughter.  These are all of them together:

I also made a pouch to store each of the bags in:

This is the one for my partner:

This was for her mom:

The buttons have her grandkids initials on them...

This was for her daughter:

Sorry for all of the pictures...I was just excited to finally be able to post the pics.  C&C are much appreciated.
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My new tote on: October 04, 2008 10:40:24 AM
I used Bouncyflea's tutorial, which can be found here:
<a href="http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=149376.0">Butterflies and Fruit Pleated Tote</a>

to make this:

It was really clear and easy to follow and I am relatively new to sewing, and it sewed up very quickly. I made my strap shorter and instead of putting Velcro like she did, I used a magnetic snap.  I also put a pocket on the inside, made of the outer fabric:

Thanks for looking, and I think that everyone should make one of these!

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My First Zipper (this is very exciting!) on: September 29, 2008 07:26:48 PM
I would like to preempt these pictures with the fact that I don't have a zipper foot for my machine, and this was my very first zipper.  I kept telling myself that I couldn't do them, that ties, snaps, and buttons were the way to go.  So, I had a zipper, I had some fabric, and I decided to try it out...I think it came out pretty ok:

a shot of the inside (I used the same fabric, next time I will use something different)

(sorry it's a little blurry)

I used the tutorial for the zippered lined pouch on here, which was amazing!
Thanks for looking and any advice to improve in the future is much appreciated!

This is my first post, although I have been lurking for quite some time now!  I was going to use this bag as a "practice" bag, but I like it so much I think I'm going to keep it!  I am relatively new at sewing, so this is a big deal for me!  Let me know what you think!

this is the inside of the bag, with my first pocket!

and, I'm still a little afraid of zippers, so I made it a tie closure-
