1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Naming products/styles on: June 06, 2013 12:17:32 PM
How do you name your products?  I sell bags and purses and I just started selling in a local shop. They want to be able to take custom orders for me.  Since i won't be the one there taking the order, it seems like it would be easier if each style of bag had a name. That way they wouldn't have to say they want a blue bag just like the red one, or whatever.  But I stink at being creative with naming things! Anybody have a naming method?
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Describing interfacing to people who don't sew on: May 31, 2013 11:17:11 AM
How can I explain interfacing and fusible fleece to people who don't sew and have never heard of interfacing?  I think I can get the point across when emailing people but I would like to also be able to explain it in purse descriptions for etsy or whatever.  I think I get a little too wordy in my explanations.  I've looked at other etsy descriptions but they seem to just say that it is interfaced.  No explanation of what that means.
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / 2 cute diaper bags on: September 14, 2012 06:24:44 PM
Hello!  I can finally post pics again!  My internet wouldn't upload any pics there for a while!  Here are a few new diaper bags I made.  My friend did the embroidery.  Sadly I still don't have an embroidery machine.  Sad  This pattern is from Aivilo Charlotte Designs and it is the original satchel.

And here it is with a matching wipes case and receiving blanket.  The pink on the blanket is flannel.

This is the larger version of the same pattern.  It's called the Satchel XL.  This particular one was made for a set of boy/girl twins. It has a zippered divider and elastic bottle pockets.  I made the bottle pockets different on purpose so it would be easier for mom to know whose bottles are whose at a glance.

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Dinosaur diaper bag on: June 23, 2012 07:08:01 AM
I've been dying to buy/use this fabric so when I found out my cousin was having a boy I bought a yard of it and decided I'd figure out what to make later!  lol.  Ended up making a small diaper bag and lots of other little matching goodies.  I used the same pattern as I did for the gray/pink diaper bag just below that says "Sophia".  I made changes to the pockets and closure to make it more boyish.  Also added a front outside pocket.  Hope you like!  I think this is my new favorite pattern!

Here it is with the extra goodies! 

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Diaper bag/Satchel on: June 01, 2012 08:19:00 PM
Just made this cute diaper bag for one of my husband's coworkers.  Also made a little taggie and wipes case to match.  I got the pattern on etsy and it was very easy to follow.  Probably one of few bags I've actually finished in a day! The pattern is listed as a Satchel in her etsy shop. http://www.etsy.com/listing/82324508/easy-pdf-sewing-pattern-aivilo-original

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Pre-washing fabric when using interfacing on: April 30, 2012 11:52:40 AM
In the past I've never really prewashed fabric unless it came from the thrift store.  I've washed a few of the bags and purses I've made and they've come out fine.  But I'm making them for a lot of other people now and would hate for their bag to shrink differently from the lining due to not prewashing.  So I'm prewashing fabrics but how does that work when I use fusible interfacing?  Does interfacing not shrink?
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Credit card pouches and makeup bag for swap on: April 30, 2012 09:46:07 AM
St. Louis Cardinal's credit card pouches.  This picture shows front and back.

Also made a couple with snaps.  Back looks the same as the one above with the STL.

And a makeup bag and toiletry roll up for my swap partner!

Thanks for looking!
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Keyka Lou patterns on sale! on: April 18, 2012 11:06:00 AM
Anniversary Sale, all patterns $5.  I couldn't find any info on how long the sale goes on (or how much the patterns were before).  I've been eyeballing one of her patterns for a while now and went ahead and bought it today.  Just thought I'd share!
Here is the link to her etsy shop.  She allows you to sell items made from her patterns too. Wink
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Cosmetic bag aka "gathered clutch" on: March 27, 2012 08:17:53 PM
I made this little cosmetic bag using Noodle-head's tutorial for a gathered clutch.  The tutorial gives the option to add credit card pockets inside but mine is just plain inside.  I usually get in a hurry and take the worst pictures of my bags.  Trying to be better about that!  This is the first of my improved photography skills!

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Drawstring bags on: March 19, 2012 03:27:31 PM
I had pinned this tutorial (http://incolororder.blogspot.com/2011/10/lined-drawstring-bag-tutorial.html) a while back because I am a pinaholic.  My cousin faithfully stalks my Pinterest and liked the bag as well so she asked if I could make one for her daughter for her dance shoes.  I made a trial run first.  It was so cute and easy!  The tutorial author also offers a pattern that includes other sizes and a formula for coming up with your own size.  Granted I could figure these measurements out on my own BUT, math isn't my strong suit and I'd rather spend my time sewing than figuring. Wink  And the pattern is only about $6 so it was well worth it IMO to let someone else do the figuring.  Anyway, my pics aren't great but here are all of the ones I made.  The one with the girls on it was for the dance shoes.  The rest were for my son's speech therapist to store all of her little activity pieces in.  Thanks for looking!
