1  misfit granny mini-tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kinini on: April 30, 2006 06:44:09 PM
As soon as school gets out for break, I always go mental from the sudden shift from having mountains of homework, to having absolutely nothing to do besides work at my lame-oid retail job.

So here is a bag that resulted from the chronic need-to-do-stuff-constantly-disease that college has permanently given me.

It's an odd bag, and I have no clue how I made it, since I just started sewing, and kept adding things and adjusting until I decided that it was done. It's lined and has all kindsa pockets, inside and out, including a little zip inside pocket, and some pen-holding slits.

But anyways, I like it because it reminds me of some kind of misfit granny who shops at flea markets and wears macaroni jewellery that her grandchildren made in pre-school.

The strap is knit out of this odd nylon "yarn" that I got at value village for about 50 cents. Super stylin' nylon!

Thanks for looking!

2  my version of mgenevieve's pleated purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kinini on: January 07, 2006 10:45:58 PM
mgenevieve made a really awesome bag and tutorial here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=49030.0 that I loved, and since I am so incredibly bored and thus crafty, I tried it out.
I ended up with a super nifty bag that is rather grandma-esque (which is gold-star good, in my books.)

The only changes I made to mgenevieve's pattern were the size, the lining and inside pocket. I also added some jazzy stitching all over, and some ribbon on the strap.

I'll be adding a zipper (you can see the pre-zipper flappies in the pics), as soon as I can get my lazy tush down to walmart.

This baby's coming with me on my first day of school, which is on MONDAY. Cripes.

I loves my new bag...

3  Country Ball wallet or clutch - Finally done! + pics in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kinini on: January 04, 2006 12:47:43 PM
Yaye! I started this a few days ago, and have been working on it a ton...
It is probably the nicest thing I have ever sewn!
I wanted to make a clutch-like, old-fashioned wallet, so I could feel like a hip old granny (I'm only 21, but Grannies are my fashion idols.) I think I might hold a country costume ball in my back yard in the spring time.

I "plasticized" the fabric using acrylic gel, so that it is shiny, and sturdier, and collaged on some cut-out flowers.
There is tons of space for money and credit cards and receipts, and the coin purse is fully lined (with un-plasticized fabric) and zippered!

Here are some pictures of it.

I'm thinking of selling it, and I might make another one with different fabric.
Thanks for lookin', ladies and gents!

4  3 Neck Things of various design. in Knitting: Completed Projects by kinini on: January 01, 2006 05:15:58 PM
I made some stuff this week... with no school, I am a bored little lady, with lots of spare time for crafty things. I'm just starting to make my own scarves, so they are pretty simplistic, but I like them anywhoo.

A loverly neck warmer... just hand sewn together in the middle to make a collar shape... it is SO warm. I like wearing it with a big huge pendant pinned to it.

I only have one set of knitting needles, a 6 1/2. They seem to be a good standard tight-knit size.

Annddd Using my handy dandy knifty knitter, I made this super easy shrug thang. It's sort of like the "Thneed" from that Dr. Suess story... it can be worn a bunch of different ways.

and finally, I didn't knit this, but I thought I'd throw this in...
It was a hoody that never fit very well, that turned into a hooded scarfy thing!

Mannequin face!

Thanks for looking!

6  "stitch drawing" tote bag of RADICAL JAZZ! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by kinini on: March 13, 2005 09:20:12 PM

This bag is made of dark brown corduroy, but the pictures make it look kinda strange...

anywho, I made this today. It's lined and has 2 pockets, one inside and one outside. I wasn't following any pattern so it's imperfect, but I love it anyways!

the horse on the front was free-hand stitched with my machine. I just changed the foot pressure to the lowest setting and away I went!

Let me know what you think...

7  Thumble-ina earings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by kinini on: December 21, 2004 05:17:22 PM
I saw some of these for sale at my school a little while ago, but they sold out before i could buy a pair. So, armed with only $10, i made my own pair.

I drilled a hole in the middle of each thimble, and threaded them onto a jewelery pin. I put a round little bead in between the thimbles, to keep them nicely spaced.

They jingle like crazy, so don't make 'em unless you don't mind jingle bells ringling in your ears all day.  Tongue

8  THE MANTIS: A Bag of Epic Radness. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by kinini on: December 21, 2004 05:12:36 PM
I bought a boring old tote bag from Michaels, and some fabric from walmart, in order to create THE MANTIS.

I sewed the image on the patch using my sewing machine. And i patchworked on the camo splotches. It looks really rad, and holds a crap load of stuff.

Mantis' are so ugly, they are AWESOME.

10  Need style? Put a DOILEY on your shirt! *pics* in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by kinini on: December 17, 2004 12:06:16 AM
So I bought some rad doileys from Michaels (2 for $1 Canadian), and sewed them on to a cardigan i bought at Old Navy for twenty bucks. This combination spawned a totally rad cardy.

Doileys are the new Ug boots, everyone! Get 'em while they're hot!!! Steal 'em from your Grandmas! Crochet up some maddness!
