I made this for a friend! I found these cute little rocketship appliques at a cool sewing store in Vancouver. Its basically just a jordy bag, and the stars are machine stitched on! I love it, and I thought I would share!



I wish you could see the rocket things better, but they get a sort of glare, since they are metallic silver! They were only 49c!

awesome bag!!  what stitch did you use for the stars?  just a straight stitch with some crafty manuvering and lots of backstitching?  and is that a vinyl or leather, or maybe some pleather for the purse?

Its vinyl, and the stitching is just a machine stitch. I went forward a bit, then back stitched half way, then turned the fabric so to make a cross, forward a bit, back half way, turned the fabric, forward, backward etc!

Thanks! Smiley

Dressew's crazy. It's for sure worth checking out. And while your there you can walk a few blocks down and visit the button store. YAAAAAY. Nobody will ever go in either of these stores with me becuase I always end up spending all day.

yea I really really really want to go there because my art prof told me about it... and I never knew about Dressew before until a few months ago... I only head out to Van about once a month... so I haven't really gone to every knook and kranny there is XD...  yea I'll probably spend all day there.. I'm sick and tired of going to Lewis Crafts and Michaels and the local fabric store... the stuff there is so ho-hum and they don't expect people younger than 30/40 to be interested in crafts... I can never find those bolo slides I want... >.>;;

this is for the sewingmachineless crafter....if you wanted to do those stars by hand you could use and embrordrie stich called "lazy daisy"....pull the needle on the up side of the fabric(the side you want the star on) be sure you have it pulled all the way through, put the needle back through very close to the place you orginally pulled it through (you can even go through the same hole if you can manage it)  but dont pull the thread all the way down, leave a medium sized loop, now decide how long you want your "point" or "petal" to be (this stich was orginally used to make flowers)  stick the needle through to the upside again, pull it through the loop you made, and then pull it back down right next to or through the same hol you came up through, but this time pull it all the way through, and vwalla!! you have a petal/point, repeat in a circle, and to make a flower pretty, put a french knot of a different color thread in the center......have fun!!!!
