1  Swoon Carter Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: October 23, 2018 06:30:08 AM
 This is Octobers Bag for the Carried Away Bag of the Month Club. This pattern is by Swoon patterns. I am a real fan of her designs. I was nervous to start this one because it called for rivets, which I had never done. They looked so intimidating but were actually quite easy! I was so surprised. The club is really pushing me out of my comfort zone and making me try new techniques. I am loving it! The push locks were new for me too.
 For this bag I didn't use my normal focus type fabrics and went with Tim Holtz Eclectic instead. I had to have the fabric when I saw it at my local store but had no idea what I would use it for. I think it went well with this pattern. I put the "R" in the front since that is my initial, so I did fussy cut.  Cheesy
 Also that is Egon acting as my model/muse. He loves to watch me sew.

Project Name: Carter Eclectic Bag

Brief Description:  This is my second Big Time and another purse from my Bag of the Month Club. This months was designed my Swoon patterns and is called the Carter. I altered the pattern a little. It called for straps that go all the way down the front and then you had to slide them into holders. I knew I would never do that and my straps would end up curled and mangled so I stopped them where the purse flap ended. The inside has divided compartments with a zippered pocket between them. This was my first time using the push locks and doing rivets. Rivets seemed so scary but they were actually easy. I am really glad I gave it a try! PS. That is my adorable Egon in the pic. He insisted.  Wink

 So here is the story about how JoyfulClover and I ended up swapping coins. I was sent her information and even though I only asked for two partners I knew Geekgirl1000100 had a rough time at the start of the swap so I just went with it. I never checked the partners list or said anything.  Tongue When she got my cards she started to panic thinking she missed that she was supposed to make for me. That's when I figured out that I actually only had two partners. LOL! She was super awesome and volunteered to make me a set of cards and I am so glad she did! Look at what I got!
  First up we have the oddball twins, Andy & Ollie. Of course they share a card. They can't be separated! And since I love cats, one of Gayle's lovely!


 Since Louise is my favorite character, these two are my favorite side characters (plus Logan) because I know it will be a Louise episode. My favorite is Millie. She cracks me up! This one is from my all time favorite episode, "Silence of the Louise"!!! JoyfulClover did an amazing job on capturing her spirit. Boo-Boo looks rockstar awesome as well!


Thank you so much. You picked such perfect characters! I love them!!!!

 I got these coins from Geekgirl1000100 over the weekend. Sorry for the delay in posting. My work computer is so much faster but I have so much work lately. Lol! Then the pictures I took were fuzzy. I think these turned out well.
 Her coins are amazing! We got another Bob's Burgers contribution. Louise is my favorite and I love this card. Then a crafting card with 3-D scissors that are exactly the right size. It was like they were made for an ATC Coin! And the final, and my favorite, the beautiful cat looking into the cosmos.


 She also included a cool set of Ghostbusters cards. Here are a couple of the cards to show the artwork on them. They are really cool!


 Thank you so much! I loved everything. And a special thank you for hosting! I hope there is another round in the future.  Grin

 I received from CuriousFae last week. It was a super crazy week. Sorry for the delay in posting these. They gave me serious swap anxiety. They are AMAZING. I love them so much!
 First up, these lovely ladies. So much class and sass!


My favorite, of course, is Louise! Those cats are fantastic too.


 She also sent along all these beautiful extras.


 Thank you so much! You are a master at these. I hope you continue making them so we can see more from you!

8  Squid Attack Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: October 08, 2018 07:25:55 AM
  Hello! Me again. As I said before, I joined a Bag of the Month Club and it has really spurred my love of sewing back into effect. It's only been two months (the next pattern comes out the 15th) and I have made three bags now. This was Septembers pattern. It's by Blue Calla patterns and is called the Coneflower Cross Body Bag. The first one I made I am giving away as a Christmas present (you can never start too early on Christmas presents!). It's a lot prettier. You can see that one here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=456034.0
 This one was made for me. I like goofy sort of things and this one fit my personality better. I got this fabric from Spoonflower about 7 or 8 years ago I think. Again, trying to do all the patterns from my stash fabric. I plan to make this purse again, the next one for my Mom and I wanted to get the kinks out and practice in vinyl before I made hers (admittedly, I bought new fabric for that one). There are a few things I will change but for the most part I am happy with it.
The purse has two zippered pockets. One outside and one inside. It also has two small slip pockets inside for cell phones, etc. and one large pocket/compartment for larger items or thing you want to keep separated. I have my Kindle in mine and there is room to spare.
 Front of purse (the pattern calls this the back but.. it's the front)

 and the inside pic was blurry, sorry. You can still get the point though.  Tongue


 Thanks for checking it out. I am loving sewing all these purses!

10  Wallets in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by gozer on: October 01, 2018 12:22:22 PM
 This was my first time making wallets. The tutorial I used didn't have enough interfacing in my opinion so I beefed it up a little bit and added a touch more. Wish I would have fussy cut the fox a little more/better but I think they both turned out okay.

 These are the backs. The blue and white one (yes, that's a dark blue) has an additional zipper. I didn't want to interrupt the fox fabric so it only got one.


the insides.


and the fronts...


 Thanks for checking them out. I made them for the Winter 2018 STS. The fox has already been claimed.  Grin
