21  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pretty Martha Negley Fabric Clutch on: September 01, 2009 06:31:13 AM

There is a little story to the above clutch. I had a pretty metal frame and a pattern. I cut out the fabric, interfacing and lining, according to the pattern. I then sewed it all up and glued the frame ready for insertion. That's when I realized I had made the purse for a smaller frame and it didn't fit! Rather than throw it all away I altered it and made this little clutch. It has a matching removable brooch, zippered top and glass bead decoration.  It's lined in coordinationg floral fabric.   I'm giving it away on my blog if you leave a comment.
22  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / link to Tutorial for wallet on: August 27, 2009 12:58:17 AM
Ever go on holidays and wish you had a wallet for a bit of change and maybe one card instead of toting around your usual loads of stuff?  Well I have written a tutorial for a slimline wallet with a separate zipped section that fits the bill!  Room for a credit card, a bit of paper money and coins.  Secure closure and a metal clip.  It is easy to make and the tutorial is easy to follow with photos to show each step.  It doesn't take a lot of fabric.
Go here for the tutorial:
23  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Sweet little slippers with tutorial on: July 27, 2009 05:17:01 AM
I normally post on the bags and purses forum as they are what I usualy make.   However, I have just finished these really cute toddlers slippers.  They were fairly easy to make and I have done a tutorial so you can make them too.  You can decorate them easily enough too.

24  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Cute Red velvet Clutch on: April 22, 2009 12:06:46 PM
I've just finished a really easy red velvet clutch.  It turned out really well and the pattern (which I made up) is really simple.  Just two main pieces (front and back) for both outside and lining.  One extra piece to make the bow.  The fastening is a magnetic snap.  It only took about an hour from cutting to finish

There's a full tutorial on my blog.  http://sewchristine.blogspot.com/

I have just finished this bag made from strips of scrap fabric.   It turned out quite well and I took photos as I went so as I could write a tutorial.   This is the front view:

I have got a number of gold coloured fittings for bags that I want to use but I cannot find any small (about half an inch) gold coloured metal O-rings.  Does anyone know where i can get these from?
27  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pink and Brown Glory on: October 12, 2008 03:15:10 AM
I have just finished a pink and brown basket bag when I should have been doing other things.  It is pink and brown floral on the outside with brown grosgrain ribbon and buttons.  The lining is matching stripey pink and brown.  It has a reinforced base, bag feet, and a magnetic snap.  The handles are dark brown bamboo.  I got the tutorial from Lisa at UHandbag.  You can see more on my blog at http://sewchristine.blogspot.co.uk
28  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Birdy fabric metal framed shoulder bag. on: September 02, 2008 03:58:42 AM
I made this bag because I wanted a bag that was compact, could be a shoulder bag or a clutch, wasn't heavy to carry but was roomy enough for my stuff.  I also wanted one that had a secure closure - hence the metal snap frame.   This was fairly easy to make, the trickiest part being the bit where you glue the purse inside the frame.   The frame came with loops so easy enough to make a shoulder strap with clips.

To win this bag go to my blog: http://sewchristine.blogspot.com/2008/09/back-from-hols-and-new-giveaway.html
29  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Frame madness on: June 20, 2008 08:20:51 AM
I was never game to try frame purses because of the risk of ruining the frame with the the pliers when securing the fabric.  However Lisa Lam of http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/ did a tutorial in making these bags using frames that only take glue.  I thought I'd give them a try.  I am very pleased with the results.   I've posted some here and there's more on my blog http://sewchristine.blogspot.com/2008/06/frames.html

Why not give them a try?
30  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pouch for unmentionables on: May 31, 2008 05:37:49 AM
I've just finished a pouch to hold tampons.  Better than having them loose in your bag!   It was easy to make and holds up to 4 tampons with applicators.   I used cute 'stacking dolls' fabric with yellow checked lining.  It is stiffened with firm iron-on vilene.

I've done a tutorial if you want to see how it's made:
