1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pink Sparkly Skull Bag... on: July 25, 2010 10:01:33 PM
I actually made this last year, I don't know why I never posted it here, so I am now.
It's hand sewn btw too.

- Full view.

- Close up of the fabric, it sparkles.

- The strap - which I actually made way too long.

- You can see the lining here.

This is hand sewn.  Smiley
This was my first time trying to do a zipper, I did mess up a little bit, but live and learn.
I just kind of wing everything.
Fake it til you make it lol

- The outside.

- The inside, and one of my favorite chapsticks is helping model the bag lol

I might end up just using this one to put my sewing stuff in, pins (in a case) and needles and threads instead of make-up.

Made this last night.
Hand sewn.
I messed up on the lining so it doesn't have one.
(This is the third thing I've made.)
I'm kind of just winging everything and practicing to learn.  Smiley
I've added a velcro closure since I took the photos.

- With my iPod and chapstick.

- The front.

- The back.
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Violet Purse. on: April 06, 2009 05:27:18 PM
The other day at about 4am I decided to randomly make a purse, I've only ever made one before.   Only ever made one thing before period actually.   So I went and dug out my fabrics and thread.  Sadly I couldn't find my pins to pin the fabric.   But I decided to wing it, no pattern, no template, just cut.   So after 15 hours on and off of hand sewing this is what I have:

- Close up of fabric.

- Size.

- Inside

- And almost as an afterthought I did a pocket mainly fo my iPod (and there is no white dot on my iPod, just something on the picture.)

I still need to buy like some velcro to do a closure, but this is it.
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / First Time Sewing. on: October 14, 2007 05:26:45 PM
This is my first time making anything, I decided on a bag.   I'd bought patterns but decided against using one and just winged it since it's a simple one.   I'd been admiring everyone else's beautiful work  Shocked, so I went to Jo Ann's twice and Wal-Mart once, Jo Ann's Halloween fabric is half off, and Halloween is my favorite holiday.   So my tote is Halloween inspired.   My mom had a little Sewing Genie she'd never even taken out of the box so I did, it did one side of the bag, and came unthreaded and for the life of me I couldn't rethread it  Cry, so I hand did the rest of the bag.   Mostly crooked, but at that point I really didn't care and choose to decide that crooked stitches were okay on a Halloween bag  Wink
Mom has a big brand new sewing machine in storage she's going to try and find for me.
But I like my bag, I'm proud.
And I love the fabric (that came from Jo Ann's and it's a flannel).
