1  Re: My first recon book purse w/ three pics in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by LisaMRose on: March 23, 2006 05:31:36 PM
Aah! I'm sorry I haven't been on in a while, I've been really busy with work and school. Anyway, I whipped up a really quick tute in paint -- if you need any more help just post or PM me and I'll further explain it.

Hope this helps! I'm considering using a piece of cardstock, folded accordian-style, for a flap. I'm going to glue it on one side and sew a loop to the other end. I'll put a button on the opposite side of the purse so I can stretch the cardstock to cover the purse. If I get around to doing this, I'll be sure to post pictures!

I'm actually looking for a logo stencil as well... even something appropriate for an iron-on would be good. However, I have one Marvin stencil that I did recently with a quote (the one about humans still thinking digital watches were a pretty neat idea, heh) as an iron on. It turned out very well.

Here it is, if anyone is interested. I can't remember where I got it... stencilry I think.

3  My first recon book purse w/ three pics in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by LisaMRose on: July 01, 2005 07:42:15 PM
Well, I've been poking around here for a while but haven't had the motivation (or time!) to post yet -- but here I am! I got half a day off of work today and decided to make a book purse. We have piles of uninteresting (to me) books laying around -- the one I used is called "In Africa," and I mostly used it because it was a good size... but then I opened it and wow! It had pretty maps on the liner pages. So I used them.
It's finished, but not. I plan on using wide ribbon in a green color for the handles -- what's there now is just fabric straps that I didn't even bother to stitch straight. That means driving to Wal-mart (the devil store, yes) or Hobby Lobby. Heh. It's staying like it is for now.

Excuse my pictures and the wallpaper. XD

Here's the front. Nothing too nice so far.

And one side (the other is similar, just a different section of map), which I think is the best looking part of the whole thing.

And the inside. It holds all I need -- wallet, checkbook, pens, keys, little things like that.

I can post more pictures if someone would like to see anything in particular. I basically winged it the whole way, but I could post a tutorial if someone really wants it.

Anyway, thanks for letting a new person to Craftster blab! Let me know what you think, and any improvement suggestions would be awesome as well.
