1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Black & White & fun bags - img heavy on: September 02, 2008 08:57:19 PM
I've been sewing! 

The first is a bag I made for my mom.  She picked out the fabric and I got to sewing.  She's super happy with it and has been carrying it all week Smiley  Always fun to have a happy momma!

The second bag I made for a swap partner.  The swap is supposed to be over, but my partner flaked and I'm waiting for a swap angel.  Bummed about her flopping, but I was really happy with how her bag came out and I still wanted to share!

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Lots of Purses on: August 14, 2008 01:31:29 PM
I've been on a major, major crafting kick.  My living room looks like a bomb went off in the craft store.  My boyfriend ate dinner on the floor last night because there just was no room left for him at either table...whoops!

Thanks to the Jordy are her amazing tutes...her basic tute was the orginial inspiration for this bag.  I have my own moderately different system now but credit where credit is due.

I digress, I've been making tons of purses...hoping to start selling soon.

I try and never make the same bag twice and here are 4 new ones...

Green1 - running eighths fabric is just the best...it adds so much character with no extra work!

Green2 - the fraternal twin of Green1 (the other half of the running eighths fabric)

Red/Pink Paisley - the outside pocket looks like its crooked, but it's just how the purse was sitting, I promise!

Brown/Green Paisley

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Tie Clutches - transformed from neckties into pretty purses on: August 14, 2008 01:22:25 PM
This is a purse made out of black neckties and great red satin fabric for the lining.  A black tie purse, made out of black ties...I just love it.  I received a purse like this as a present and have always wanted to make one of my own.  I improved on the orginial (or at least I think so).  

I made another "Tie Clutch" for my 1st swap partner who ended up flaking on me Undecided  Anyway, the bag is cute and I wanted to share!!

The Black Clutch

The Lining (please ignore what look like random threads, I'd already cut them off but they snuck back into the picture...rudeness)

The Red/Blue Clutch

All comments greatly appreciated, thanks for looking!!
