11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Purses and clutches (lotta pics!) on: March 08, 2010 10:50:10 AM
Ohhhhh they are all simply gorgeous!
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My nearly amazing wallet on: March 08, 2010 10:16:27 AM
I found a wallet picture on the internet that I fell in love with the design of. I searched and searched for a pattern similar and couldn't find one. So I figured I could try winging it. This is the third try, I still have some dimensional tweaking to do - but it's coming out great and I'm loving my new wallet. I'm really excited to make another one with my tweaks in place.

The outside is crypton suede and the inside is some cotton I'd purchased for my son's wallet (hahaha isn't it adorable!?!).

13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Amy Butler "In Stitches" Clutch with many revisions :-D on: February 01, 2010 03:20:33 PM
This purse thing is slightly addicting!

I made this one using a pattern for a clutch in Amy Butler's In Stitches book. I'm not a clutch fan and I adore pockets. So this was my first adventure into adding zippered pockets - oh and slash pockets too!

As you can see, this purse probably should've stayed being a clutch or else someone with more experience should've designed the straps - they're HUGE, but I like them...just on something else  

A 'not very good' picture of the magnetic snap closure (the pattern called for Velcro, I don't like Velcro - but magnets are fun!).

Back zippered pocket, which is also HUGE, not part of the original pattern and should accompany whatever purse the straps would feel more at home on.

A slightly different picture of the front, showing a bit more of the slash pockets that oddly came out too small - and were not part of the original pattern.

Inside of purse. The swivel clip also wasn't part of the original pattern, I love those things. My favorite purse has one and I hook my keys to it - so handy, so I had to have one in this purse.

A close-up of the inside zippered pocket (also not part of the pattern) that came out entirely too long - hahaha I don't know what I was thinking, but I made the pocket the same length as the purse. Makes it a bit of a chore to get the end of the zipper.

Thank you so much

I have only ever made one bag - is this pattern fairly easy?? or is it for experts only.
That's a tough call for me to tell you the truth. I'd say it wasn't terribly hard, but since I'm a novice it took me a very long time - probably 12 hours or so. It was easy to understand the pattern.

Your bag is gorgeous - could you tell me what the pattern is please?
Absolutely! It's McCall's M5599 View D.

I'm not sure what you mean - but it didn't dawn on me to make mention of changes I made  Cheesy

I used a heavy, fusible interfacing - the pattern called for a sewn in interfacing (and of course didn't tell you what type of interfacing). And on the ends I used the interior fabric for a contrast.

I did notice mine looks a bit different than the pattern photo - I attribute that to the heavy interfacing I used because it makes it stiffer and was a bit of a PITA to deal with so I probably wasn't able to 'pinch' in areas hard enough.

I made a purse! I've had this pattern laying around for a long time now and finally decided to do something with it! I haven't sewn anything in over a year (too much going on in personal life) now I've got the bug again!






Sorry the pictures aren't very good - I took them with my phone  Tongue

Oh wow, those came out lovely!  I have a Simplicity pattern that looks very similiar.  I've been trying to figure out what to make with 7 yards of this wonderful stretch gauze I bought.  Last night I finally decided to make a skirt and a top...I've been going back and forth as to whether to make that dress, I figured naw a skirt and a top would be great.  Now I want that dress!  It's simply gorgeous, very flattering.

I don't get over here nearly often enough!  That is the skirt I wore to the meet, as a matter of fact that was taken at the meet!

You had commented Sheliaann!  Thank you so much.  I really like the skirt, but I think I'm going to install more buttons.  Since it's a wrap it's not necessary to install more buttons but it bothers me that it gaps a bit when I walk.  I washed the denim before I delved into it, and after I made the skirt it was fine, but then I washed the skirt and now it gaps.  I think there's just too much area between buttons - either that or I need to move them a smidge, or both.

ETA: sunnymoody can you see it okay now?  Perhaps my webhoster was down for a bit when you looked at the thread before.
