1  Tablet cover in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Ktmon7 on: September 14, 2008 04:51:51 PM
I have a tablet, which is a lot like a mouse, but it uses a pen.
I hate carrying it around, because it gets scratched up easily, so I decided to make a cover to protect it.  Smiley
My first time sewing a button hole, yay!


Close up of fabric, button, and my craptastic stitching:

Inside (I've sewn batting to the lining fabric to cushion it a bit):

Tablet and the Cover:

Its a little snug, so I might let the sides out a bit, but it works for now. I also want to use a little strip of fabric to keep the cord together.

I personally like black, pink, and mint green together  Grin

2  (Yet another) Jean purse {IMG heavy} in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Ktmon7 on: December 14, 2007 08:42:03 PM
Who hasn't made one of these yet?

Ha, anyway..
Using Threadbanger's tutorial on how to make a jean purse (http://www.threadbanger.com/episode/THR_20070914), I figured that since I recently got a few trash bags full of clothes from someone my dad worked with (I got rid of all the stuff that didn't fit me long before I started crafting.. darn it), I'd take a pair of jeans that didn't fit me and turn it into a messenger bag (I love them so..).

I wish I took before pictures.. crud
Oh well. Here's the end result Grin

The front/flap:

The inside:

The back:

The big pocket:

The strap:

And the good thing about making a jean purse? It already comes with pockets!
I really like the stitching on the strap, and I am in love with the purple fabric. It has writing on it, but I have no idea what it says ^^;;
I put iron-ons to make it more "customized," but it's.. eh.

I even wanted to put a "hidden pocket" behind the snaps, but I made the mistake of telling my dad that, and his exact reaction was "Ahhhhh, no."
I'm pretty happy with it though, even if it is a little small.

Wow. Long post. Sorry 'bout that, but thanks for looking!

3  First bag, first post (IMG heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Ktmon7 on: November 19, 2007 05:30:49 PM
I had been a lurker on Craftster for a bit, and I decided to pull out my Grandmother's sewing machine to try my hand at sewing after I saw what people could do when they DIY.

I originally wanted to make a tote bag, but I decided to go with a messenger-type bag since I love them so..
And here's what I came up with (no pattern, I just used a tutorial or 2)

Action shot:

Front of the bag:

Inside of the bag:



It ended up like a big slouch bag.. didn't exactly mean for it to come out that way, but it's what I got, and I'm pretty happy with it.
I actually re-did some of it because the previous pocket on the inside opened up too wide for me, so I put the purple one in instead.

Well, as my first project, I'm pretty proud of it, and I hope you guy like it as well.
