1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recycled jeans brush roll (link to tutorial in Spanish) on: February 14, 2010 01:24:51 AM
Recently, I'm loosing some weight, so I have like four or five pairs of jeans that are too big for me already, plus, they're kind of old. I have been waiting to use the pretty and shiny sewing machine my bf got me for Christmas (the first one that I own and use!) and I couldn't wait to experiment with recycling jeans. So, I grabbed the oldest pair and some cheap orange fabric I got from the neighbourhood flea market and made this roll for my brushes, pencils, etc.

At first I thought that using the bottom border of the trouser leg would be a cool grunge touch. When it was finished, I realized I didn't like it that much, so now I'll change it with an orange ribbon as soon as I get it from the flea market.

I made this kind of tutorial in my blog (http://maicillo.blogspot.com/2010/02/tutorial-portapinceles.html), however, it's in Spanish. You can see the pictures of the process, though. I think it's kind of intuitive, since I myself didn't even make a pattern or anything before starting.

Now I can't wait to make more with different fabrics and more pockets!

I hope you like it Smiley
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Second shoulder bag! on: September 06, 2009 07:52:02 AM
Yesterday, I wrote this post (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=320002.0) about my first shoulder bag. Well, today I'm amazed at how quickly I can make this kind of bag!

Again, following this tutorial (http://tinyhappy.typepad.com/tiny_happy/2006/06/shoulder_bag_tu.html) but changing the pattern a bit so that it only has one seam, I managed to make this in, like, 3 hours!

I'm happier with this bag than with the previous one. This time the cheap Chinese sewing machine behaved a little bit!

Now I must go and get some buttons to finish them! Smiley Please, let me know what you think!
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / First shoulder bag on: September 05, 2009 08:49:18 AM
I wanted to start making handbags for such a long time now, and I finally decided to drop by the flea market and buy some remnants. I found a couple of nice pieces of fabric and some cheap ones for lining.

This is my first (unfinished) attempt on bag making. I followed this lovely tutorial (http://tinyhappy.typepad.com/tiny_happy/2006/06/shoulder_bag_tu.html) and, despite my 15 sewing machine my bf got me from the Chinese store and my almost non-existent ability to sew, I managed to do something, I think, sort of decent! Smiley

I still have to find a big green button to be able to close it. Anyway, this was a kind of test. I'll try to make a new one with a nicer remnant I got. I'll post it here, too.

I hope you like it Smiley Opinions are welcome!
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Digital tablet felt bag on: April 05, 2009 06:41:01 AM
This is my first attempt on bag-making, therefore I decided to start with something easy. Bf got me this brand new and shiny Wacom tablet for Christmas and it really deserved a nice, cozy bed to sleep in. So, I grabbed some felt and some fabric I'd kept for ages and made this:

Iit's not completely finished. I'm still thinking how I'm gonna close it. Maybe velcro...

I hope you like it! I'm quite proud of it myself Smiley
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Evil Mammal Chicken plushie on: January 07, 2008 12:19:16 AM
Hi everyone and happy New Year Smiley I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.

This is a plushie I made to give it to my boyfriend on the Three Wise Men night, it's called Mammal Chicken and basically it's a ball of flesh with thick lips, huge fangs and little cartilaginous feet. I don't remember the exact moment it was born in our minds, but here it is.

It's my second plushie and I'm self-taught so... don't be too harsh! Cheesy I'm learning a lot, though.

Take care.

This is the first plushie I make, so I decided to go for something simple and, following this tutorial (http://www.web-goddess.org/writing/tutorial/Image0.html), I finally managed to create, without practically no sewing skills, Mitj Smiley

Don't be too harsh, hehe, I can't really sew. I'm looking forward to learning how to do it properly with my next plushie projects.
