Project Name: Pokemon Purse
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=454986.0
Brief Description: I made this purse for RedheadwithThread for the Games Swap. She wanted something bigger with lots of pockets. I let her pick the pattern. I wanted it to be bright and fun like her personality.  Grin  Pretty sure this would hold a lot at a convention.

2  Pokemon Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: May 18, 2018 11:14:45 AM

 I recently joined the Games Swap and my partner really likes Pokemon. I knew I wanted to make her a purse that would be bright and fun so I went to a couple different fabric stores and finally settled on this fabric. I let her pick out the pattern. It's the Daffodil Tote by BlueCallaPatterns. I did the larger version here minus the patchwork on the front because I couldn't find enough Pokemon fabric to do that with. The purse is approximately 16 W x 9.5 H x 5.5 D.

 The purse has two handle types, short and long, depending on how the user wants to carry it. One side has a large pocket along with a zippered pocket.


And the other side has the front pocket divided into two.


 It has a zippered top. The top doesn't close the entire way though. Which I thought was okay once it was finished. Inside is another zippered pocket....

 ... and a slip pocket as well.

Inside the pocket was more of the printed Pokemon fabric but I forgot to get a pic of that.

 I can't take all the credit for the purse though. My fur baby, Egon, did his usual quality control.

 I checked on my package a few times and it seemed like it just stopped for a while on the 13th but thankfully it started moving again and I finally got it. And what a wonderful package it is! RedheadWithThread knows I collect the Monster High dolls like she does. She sews the most amazing clothes and she was generous enough to customize a modernized Red Riding Hood. I am obsessed with this doll. She is incredible. I can't imagine sewing this tiny hoodie! She did a fantastic job on it. It even has a little hole for her hair to come out! She also send me two fat quarters of some star fabric she has used before that I love. I am brewing up some ideas for them now.  Wink And a tiny hair brush for me new doll.

 Here she is with some of her sisters on my Frankie shelf!


 And here is a short of my full doll shelf. It's from the side. That's about a third of the dolls I have. I need more stands but I also have boxes full of unopened dolls too.  Tongue



 And here is the star fabric I was telling you about. She used it as the interiors to some make up bags I believe. Love the star fabric! Thank you so much RedheadWithThread!

5  Planner Swap in New Swap Theme Ideas by gozer on: May 08, 2018 01:13:43 PM

  I just got a new Mini Happy Planner. It officially starts in July but I have already been adding my stickers and coloring it up. I absolutely cannot wait to use this thing! I have been buying stickers and I have a bunch that I know I will not use. I also saw a bunch of supplies (bookmarks, page bands, extra pages) that I am sure I can make. There are even stickers made with the Silhouette!  
 I'm not sure if this has been done before but is anyone interested in a Planner Swap? We could swap supplies and a small crafted item or more if that's what people wanted. I was thinking of a easy, low stress swap. Is there anyone else interested in this besides me?

 I did another search and found we have done something like this last year:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451565.0

 Could we do it again?!

Bonus Points: (include which bonus points you think you've earned, e.g., Giver, Engineering, Community, WIP It, Swaptastic, Brain Power, EPIC!)
Project Name: Star Wars Lip Balm

Brief Description: This is obviously Star Wars. LOL! I taught a group of ladies how to make these at work so we can give them out tomorrow for May the Fourth. I found the images, sized and printed them, and cut them all out. I also removed the labels off the lip balm tubes. I taught the ladies how to roll the new image on. We had a lot of fun. In total we made 52 to give out. There are a lot more images than shown.  Wink

Team: Wordy!!
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Star Wars Chocolates
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: These should be instantly recognizable as Star Wars. I started out making these as a treat I was going to leave in our cantina for STar Wars Day (May the 4th). It ended up getting turned into a company wide event and now I have to make so much more! I wish I had double the molds! I am going to be tight for time getting this done. Here is what I have so far. I keep breaking off R2's leg and there are black Vaders under the X-wings but they just took up too much chocolate to make a bunch. This will be Team Wordy's Hunt for something that is consumed. Oh, the green ones have raspberry flavoring and the whites have orange flavorings added too.

Prompt: April- Team Award
Team: Wordy!!
Bonus Points: -0-
Project Name: Girl In Hat
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I have so many favorite parts to Craftster. One is the Games, another is swapping. My favorite swap I think would have to be the ATC Swap. I have participated in many of them over the years and they have such a great community over there too. The always inspire me to do better. Also, I love Team WORDY!!!! I love all my teammates and have a lot of fun over here. So I am going with Team Award here. I am not that fond of this ATC though. I may go back and tinker with it some more but I haven't rendered in a long time and one of my markers bled all over her face near the end and I had a time fixing it.
 EDIT: I updated her a little with some glitter in the background and in her eyes. You can't really see it in her eyes in the pic but  it's there.
 This will also be my HUNT item for Something with Glitter!

9  Octopurse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: April 05, 2018 01:59:16 PM
 This is my favorite pattern. I love the way it fits on my arm and that it fits my Kindle perfectly. This is the third purse I have made myself from this pattern (Notting Hill Handbag) and I highly recommend it!
 I saw this fabric and HAD to have it. It featured both an octopus and stars. Two things I love. Pretty sure I bought the stars in every color it came in.  Cheesy  Sorry the purse looks a little rumpled. I carried it a while before taking pics and my stuff was still inside of it.  Tongue


 Front


Three Quarters


Back


 and of course my most dedicated helper, Egon.
 My friend saw this and decided she liked the style so I am making her one out of different fabrics next. I love how versatile this pattern is. It can take on so many different looks.

 Thanks for checking it out!

10  Horror Movie Poster Bettie Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: April 05, 2018 01:46:31 PM
  It's been so long since I have posted here. I have been bitten by the bag making bug lately. I have a bunch more planned. Hopefully life will let me make them and not have me stuck doing boring things like cleaning my house.  Tongue
 I had to try to this purse because it had such a unique shape. I went to the store and bought fabric before I read over the instructions and realized the front and back are one continuous piece. I was determined to make it that day without another trip to the store. I found this Horror Movie Poster fabric in my stash and it was non-directional so I used it. I think it turned out well. I liked the brightness of it.

 Front and Back.

 Inside was neat because it had a zipper to secure your items plus the magnetic snap to hold it's shape.

 
 I have to say I had a time getting the lining and the zipper and the exterior of the bag sewn up. I could not figure it out from the instructions so I ended up putting them aside and figuring it out myself. In the end, the way I had it pinned looked nothing like their picture. I still have no idea how they did it. Also, the pattern didn't call for much interfacing. The interior fabric isn't interfaced at all. I like a sturdier bag with lots of interfacing so it will last longer and maintain its shape. If I had to do this bag over again I would SF101 both the interior and exterior fabrics of the bag.
 Here is a bonus shot of my two lovely hlepers, Yeti Pegleg and Egon.  Grin
