11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Luggage tags on: April 24, 2010 06:54:43 AM
I have just completed some luggage tags.  Whilst not a bag stictly speaking, this seems the most appropriate section to list under.  They were quick and easy to make and the clear vinyl was from old packaging.  (Never throw away stuff that might be useful)
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Terrier Bag on: April 13, 2010 12:38:35 AM
I've just finished this bag.  It is in furnishing weight linen fabric, white background with colourful terrier dogs all over it.  I love this fabric!  The bag is a boxy shape with a zippered closure, one external pocket and an adjustable strap to go from handbag to shoulder bag.  The fabric also comes in oil cloth so I made a matching make up bag and also made the bottom of the bag out of oilcloth.   I interlined the bag with timtex and put metal feet on the bottom.  It is lined in Amy Butler fabric in dark pink and duck egg blue.  I put one internal zippered pocket, two internal slip pockets and a pocket for my mobile phone.  Its very roomy, great for days out.

13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / The Ultimate Wallet! *Lots of photos* on: March 08, 2010 08:44:05 AM

I call this the Ultimate Wallet because it has a separate proper compartment for notes, card pockets, extra roomy pockets and a zippered coin compatment.  It was tricky to work out but pretty easy to sew.  When folded it only measures 4.5 by 4.5 inches.  So it is compact.  I used a velcro fastening.  You can use up you small scraps because it it so small.  If you want to make on you can get a tutorial from my blog:
14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / New to jewellery making on: March 01, 2010 02:18:49 AM
I've just started making my own jewellery.  I've been learning from books - no proper lessons.  I could really do with some.  I've made a number of earrings and a bracelet I am pleased with. 

I'd like to know if there is a knack to getting the final knot really tight so the beads don't move and show a little length of beading string.  I found that the hardest part to do.  I used cullotes (end covers) to finish the stringing and hide the knots but it took me forever to get the knot right.  If you've got any suggestions I'd love to hear them.
Also how to close the prongs over the stone more neatly.  I used pliers but I couldn't get them to match up.  You can see what I mean in the photo.
Thanks, Christine
15  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Bin (Trash can) Cover on: January 30, 2010 12:35:44 AM
This is my first post in this section of Craftster.  I normally post in Bags and Purses.  However I have made a pretty bin cover for a bathroom ( or any other room) bucket-type bin (which I believe is called a trash can in the US)  This was quick and easy and I will be making some more for my other bins.   It only requires one side seam and two elastic casings (top and bottom) and you can match any bin to your decor and make it nicer to use as you can't see into it anymore.  If you need a tutorial there is one on my blog

16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Woollen embroidered bag on: January 22, 2010 06:24:07 AM
This bag is made from upholstery weight woollen fabric with wool embroidery on it.  It is great weight for bags which take a bit of punishing!  it is lined in cotton with interior pockets and has a zippered closure.  I also interfaced it with quilters fleece.

17  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Carpet bag on: January 20, 2010 04:36:11 AM
I have just finished one of those carpet bags using a curved frame.  I am really happy with it.  It was pretty easy to do and the frame is inserted after you've done everything else.  It looks compact when it is closed but opens up really wide (8 x 8 ins) It holds a lot of stuff.  There is a bit more info on my blog:

18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Wristlet or clutch on: December 15, 2009 08:58:11 AM

20  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Iphone cover on: October 07, 2009 08:20:07 AM
This is sooo simple it is a bit embarrassing that I even did a tutorial!  It is a sleeve for an iphone, although you could use it for any mobile (cell) phone.  I used really cute mushroon fabric and padded it with quilters fleece.  It doesn't have any closure e.g. no zip, button, snap or velcro.   If you can thread a machine you can make this.  It would make a great gift too.
