2  Re: messenger bag with gusset tutorial in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by crafteedee on: October 30, 2007 02:07:55 AM
This tute intrigued me.  I think I've made 1 purse type thing about 2 years ago & I hated it so never attempted any more.  Had I only known about CRAFTSTER back then!!!  I'm on a roll, this is my 4th bag this month!  And as an added bonus...I like them all!

I have found that if I have a purpose to my project (or a deadline), I'm more inspired to finish it.  This one is for my hubby.  He needs a "man bag" for our overseas trip.  Is it masculine enough?

Now I want to make one in decorative denim...would be neat to add a zippered divider.  Hmm...need to check the tute on that now...

This is my 1st time dealing with magnetic snaps.  Quite Cool!

The light reflecting off the black canvas makes it look horrible!  Shows were all the lint is & some threads I need to snip!   Shocked   I rubber stamped chinese for "I love you" & also a Handmade by stamp at the bottom.

3  Child pillow costume - super easy, but fun! in Halloween Costumes by crafteedee on: October 30, 2007 12:08:03 AM
Want to see a super easy costume???  1 yard of fun fabric.  I wasn't in the mood (or had time for) anything complicated this year.

I found the eyelash fabric on clearance & that was also on sale for 50% off...$2.50 total for 1 yd.  Probably on cl. due to the horizontal lines going thru it.  Really shows up in the photo, but not as much in person. 

If I can get my DD to let me take a pix of her wearing it...I will post another shot. 

She originally wanted to stuff her costume with plastic bags, but I couldn't think of an easy way to keep them in while making the costume easy to wear & not hot & scratchy.  So...I attached batting to the inside on both sides.  Having a body inside will fill it out more.

I plan on converting this into a real pillow after we're done with the costume.  Smiley

Any suggestions for a hat or head covering?

4  Doritos tote bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by crafteedee on: October 28, 2007 11:03:48 PM
Here's my first attempt at "reassigning" a use for trash.  I was inspired by the Ramen zippered pouch that was posted.  I'll be trying that one too.   Wink

This is just a basic, no frills, tote bag.  Lining is just white muslin.

I bought a vinyl tablecloth protector at Big Lots for $3 just so I could do some of these bags.  this was my tester bag.  Besides part of the one sewn side ripping (Chip bag part) when I went to invert it (had to flatten it out again & tape it with clear packing tape before reinverting it), things went pretty smoothly.

Doritos anyone???

Great job on your bag.  I like yours better than mine.  Probably because you took the time to line yours.  I like the lining.  Smiley  I pretty much followed the Threadbanger blog except that I machine stitched it instead of doing by hand.  I wonder how much more thick it would be if I lined it.  (I think my flap would lay nicer lined)  As it was, there were a few parts that my machine just quit & said "no way!".   When I have a chance, I plan on putting a patch or 2 on the flap.

I'm going to try posting photos again now that I've proven myself a worthy craftster poster.  haha   Grin

I'm looking forward to using this bag as my overseas craft travel tote to keep me busy on the plane.

7  Recycled Jeans - Japanese Folded Patchwork Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by crafteedee on: October 25, 2007 01:26:56 AM
I used these instructions to make the following bag out of recycled jeans & fabrics that friends sent me when I asked for things that represented America.
I did manage to complete it in a day.

I thought about adding a Levi's pocket, but haven't decided...

It could be made reversible if I added some trim at the top of this side, but I think some of the pieces are a bit dirty, so I'll keep the print side out.

Had to add a pix of my kitten going crazy with it.   Grin
