Nope - I get a blank screen when I click on the link.  From home, I would blame my own lame system but I am currently at work (lol) and this system is fast and fancy. 

Lol ok. I'll try and find a way of showing you the photos. They worked a couple of days ago, so I can't figure out how they're not showing up now  Huh

I can't see any of them, either. I think it's because AngelFire doesn't allow hot linking, at least not reliably. Try Photobucket.com or weblogimages.com.

Seeing as I have a ton of free space on my image host at the mo, I'm having a rare kind day Wink and I've uploaded it to my account.

Can't promise it'll stay there forever, but I have no other use for the space at the moment and it's paid for...so here ya go!

Aww thank-you! There you go!

Next time I'll drag my lazy Angelfire-loving arse over to Photobucket  Tongue

We SO must be separated at birth or something,LikeHolyWine...here's a picture of my tape measure bags- it might've been mine you saw before as I've posted them under a different topic previously here on Craftster.




Here's a similarly themed wallet:



and a little coin purse





The white one I made similarly to LHW's tutorial, though I sewed my tapes to interfacing for durability. I also added a zipper and lined it which is a pain in the bum- i used a tutorial from Craftster for doing seamless lined bags, just do a search.

For the wallet and coin purse, I sewed the tapes together, covered with vinyl and added pockets to wallet and lined with biased tapes. I was really pleased with the results

I really love those bags!  I'm so glad you found another way to post them because, like jen*,I could not see the photos either!  For some reason, those were the only photos I have had trouble seeing.  That's just really strange to me!  Anyway, those are great bags!

Yeah, yours were the ones I saw, and it inspired me to make my own! Yours are way better then mine!   Cheesy
