Title: Cut-out handles, matching wallet (4 pictures! unnecessary modeling XD)
Post by: RobinLynne on August 04, 2006 02:41:24 PM
Well I think the subject pretty much says it all...


Deliciously evil fabric from Wal-Mart ( :( I knowww.) I got a whole 1.5 yds for 57 cents though(!)


The left side is styled like that amazing change-purse ... that I can't find the link for, but if/when I do, I'll post it!.. anyway, it's styled like the little changepurse that folded, you know, so nothing fell out.. so it holds my change -and- my one lowly $5 bill.


I have mad hand-sewing skills, yo. (the handle) and I so love my buttons.. yay orange strawberries :D

and the unnecessary modelling... *clickit*

thumbnail'd for your pleasure.  (It's a fun picture :P)

Yay. Comments? Criticism? Yeahhh! Bring it.  ;D

That is way cute and 57 cent is a great deal even if you did get it at Walmart. I might have to try that style.

I love it! The fabric rocks and I love the stitch detail on the handle.  Did you use a tutorial from craftster for the shape?

Thanks! I... technically, not sure.  I saw the tutorial for cut-out handles and figured that out pretty much on my own.. but as far as shape.. it was actually gonna be a totebag with four sides, til I got lazy and just sewed the two up like that.  I just confused my own self.

That fabric is awesome. Wal mart is good for cheap fabric. Oh, and I love the button detail too. Cute all around, actually.

I do that all the time.  See something I like and then figure it out myself.  lol

Wow that fabric is at walmart????????  Thats awesome!! I love the bag and wallet, very cute!!  I've noticed that walmart has been bringing in much cuter fabrics lately.. And yeah it's evil to shop there, but it makes my wallet and husband happy as it's much cheaper than other places!! lol

Yes ma'am! I found it in this little box they put "remnants" in.. there's a lot of good stuff in there under a dollar usually :)
