that is so cute. I love the colors. Do you suppose you could hook us up with the link to heartofmarys bag?

http://pinoyinoz.blogspot.com/2008/07/tutorial-city-backpack.html here's the link! hope it helps!

Btw, it is not big enough to fit an A4 sized file or stuff it's only 10.5 " by dunnoi what, so it's rather small.
the next time i make another one, i'm going to make sure it can fit at least A4 so i can carry it to school!
But in the meantime, it's been fun carrying it around

Great job.  Now you've given me an idea for something else I want to make.  My list seems to be endless!

Hey, i didn't extend the flap, i just didn't use interfacing at all, cause i wanted it to be all slouchy,
btw, the straps were way too short, so i extended them!

So like about last year, i was looking through the purses, bags and wallets section here on craftster, and i stumbled upon HeartofMary's AWESOME citybackpack. It was gorgeous and absolutely like what i wanted to BUY. then i thought to myself, i can make this! but after awhile, i forgot. Then just about 3 days ago, my MidYear Examinations ended, so i decided, to reward myself with some fabric. I headed down to Ikea with my bestfriend, and at first, picked up a roll of thin pink. white, yellow striped fabric. It was nice, but not quite what i wanted. As i was about to walk towards the Cashier, i saw loads of cloth. I was damn excited. And tada! i found this beautiful blue and white striped fabric. I spent the past two days working on it. and Now, im finally done.
I know the lining may seem abit strange, considering the colour is rather differnt from the outside.
The drawstring is from some twine that i braided and used gold thread thing to wrap at the bottom with some UHU glue.

Hope  you like it!
feel free to comment


Btw, i lengthened the straps by A LOT. when i cut it and sewed it, i could barely put my arms through, so i just cut an extra bit and sewed it on.

With the flap open

As you can see, i'm quite a magnetic snap closure noob. the first time i used it, love it, but i put it the wrong way :/

Thanks for viewing (: (: (:
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How to High-neck Blouse? on: December 13, 2008 01:10:43 AM
Hey there, i've been searching high and low for this sort of blouse,and i finally found one at fourever21, but the size is wayyy to big for me ):
so i'm wondering if anyone knows where to get patterns or like tutorials on how to make such tops.

i already bought some satin to make the top. now all i need is a tute or a pattern to follow.
here are some pictures

this is the forever 21 one.

that's a dress, but the idea is there

I also saw one in a season 2 episode of Gossip Girl, worn by blair waldorf. i really liked hers!

so if you could find any, please tell me (:

i want to make one for my sisters' x'mas present!!!
thanks a bundle!
18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Polka-hearts Pouch :) on: December 12, 2008 08:18:29 AM
So my bestfriends' birthday is coming. & she wanted a new wallet.
This whole year, her wallet has been this crappy ladybug purse (more like a coin pouch, since she likes it that way) with a plastic covering (also done by me). and now i think it's time to trash it. so i've decided to make her a new one for her coming birthday.
I got this fabric from the daylight robbery store, Spotlight. but at a 20 % discount Smiley so it isn't too bad. i lined the inside of the cloth with some thick white cotton fabric i got for about 2 bucks per metre. the zip only costed me 25 cents Cheesy
well. this isn't all i'm giving her. but i think she may use this a lot a lot a lot Cheesy

enjoy the pictures!

i just couldn't help having me in one of the pics :b
(the colour is very light, and i used iMac, which doesn't really complement the colours)

the inside of the pouch

and the pouch again!

yea, that's about it. comments appreciated Smiley

also, does anyone know a pattern for the top that Blair wore in one of the later episodes in Season 2? (GOSSIP GIRL) . it's like a high collared sleeveless shirt, made out of satin/silk material. i love it a lot. and i have been shopping around for tops like that, but the dont' seem to have it in my size ): all too big!
