Yeap I draw the faces myself.  They are not that complicated.  Just a few lines really.

okay - so I skipped a month or so in there, but watch out!  June will be chock full, and I promise I won't post them all here, as I'm mass producing for a fair.  But, I got a great custom order, and while I'm not quite done, it's done enough for pictures, and I have to share.  I haven't ever done a laptop carrier before....

Lacking just a few minor adjustments, here is the Custom Laptop Messenger soon to be sent to his new home in Canada! Smiley  You may have noticed the pins - those are some of the final adjustments to be made, and the flap only looks off center - it is centered nicely Smiley  The front panel and divider are very protective for the computer - both are quilted with high loft batting, and reinforced with a sturdy peice of plastic for rigidity.  ALL seams are triple stitched for strength, and the handles have been triple stitched three times (are you lost yet?) to ensure she will never have to worry about her strap suddenly snapping off with her computer tumbling to the ground.  The rear pockets have two expanded pockets on the sides for accomidation of her cables and adaptor, plus a pen pocket and another accessory pocket.  The front pockets are all flat, accessory pockets, with one pen pocket as well.

hi there, my partner recieved in the aussie bits swap so here is what i made from the 7 ties and a stretchy blue skirt  that my partner sent to me.
Here is what she sent to me to sew. She asked me to unpick the ties and make her a bag that would fit a book. So basically I was free to do whatever.  Wink


messenger bag made from just 3 ties!

and an evening clutch, wallet and phone/ipod cosy.  Smiley





so it was a new thing, sewing ties together, a bit of a challenge. I used a crazypatch technique.  Tongue

what do you all think?  Roll Eyes

Cyndiq, the messenger bag is especially awesome! Shocked The colours have these sort of antique yet elegant look. Are those just lines of decorative machine stitches I see? They're very pretty. Smiley

Haha, by the way, is it "unpick the ties" or "pick the ties"? 'Cause the seam ripper is also caled a thread picker, so I don't know. Cheesy



I haven't had the time to make a May bag, (and I left most of my fabric scraps when we moved house anyway) plus I'm heading off to college in a few weeks, so I'm afraid I'll just be an observer of this thread from now on. Cry

Oh cyndiq, I agree, the messenger bag is amazing!  The colours, the stitching, everything about it.  I also love how you used the skinny end of the tie as the closure flaps on the other items.  I think I would have lost my patience just trying to carefully pick the ties apart.  Good job.
