1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Need help finding a pattern / tutorial please on: May 02, 2009 09:21:26 AM
Hi all, I'm trying to help someone find a pattern or even better a tutorial for a bag like this:


Or even a tutorial to describe how to do the handles and the loops to go through the rings would be great  Grin

2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Another butterfly picture on: January 04, 2009 08:34:34 AM
I had so much fun making the last picture,
that I had to do another one!

This one is a bit different because I picked a colour theme, I got the frame from a local charity shop (I was trying to find one to fit the first pic I made!  Grin)

Sorry about the poor pic but it was dark here when I finished it! (excuse the messy craft area a.k.a. my dining table  Cheesy)

What do you think? Do you like the one colour theme? (DH wasn't impressed and said I should use all the colours!)

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / My attempt at the butterflies pic on: January 02, 2009 12:35:26 AM
I have never posted on this board before but after seeing this post I was inspired to have a go myself. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=284723.0

It is A4 card and a punch I borrowed from my mum's collection.

I still need a frame for it and I have lots more butterflies cut out to make some more  Smiley  I'm not sure if it would look better on black card (my mum didn't have any left that I could pinch) I might try that next.

Any comments appreciated.
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Geeky lunch set very pic heavy! on: December 25, 2008 03:01:03 PM
Just a bit of background info, I made this set for my Dad, he is an electronics engineer and draws circuit boards on a regular basis, hence my odd choice in fabric. I find getting fabrics I like for men in my family a nightmare!

I apolgise for the poor pics, it was late when I finished sewing these so the light was bad.

2 sandwich wraps and 2 flip top bags. I wanted to make more and some other stuff but there was a few flaws in the fabric

the 2 sandwich wraps

the 2 flip top bags

The circuit board is from a ZX Spectrum which was one of the first computers we ever owned in our house  Cheesy

Any comments appreciated.
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Cat Rucksack custom order for my niece on: December 19, 2008 10:51:36 AM
My sister was that impress by the rucksack I made for my nephew (her son) she ordered one for her little girl for Christmas.  Grin

She picked the XOXOXO the cat fabric and we were going to make the bag in denim but once I got the cat fabric it didn't look quite right. Luckily I had some lovely grey cord sitting around that matched perfectly!

I then had to decide what to do on the front pocket so I copied one of the cats heads and appliqued it in felt  Grin

The pics aren't great because it was dark when I took them, but here we go:-


Any comments / crits welcomed  Smiley
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Singlet style hopping bags on: December 07, 2008 01:19:45 AM
I know these have been done loads but I was quite proud that I actually got round to making them!  Grin

This shows one flat, one folded up  - it doesn't have a  pocket I just folded it into itself, and a mini one for the kids.

I did discover that the plastic bags in the UK are a lot smaller than the US ones so these come up small. They are ok but need to be a little bit bigger especially in the handles. So I had another go and made the pattern bigger this time.

I am taking part in a Secret Santa and this is part of the gift. The tortoise is felt applique and it was copied from here http://paper-and-string.blogspot.com/ (I hope she doesn't mind  Smiley )

Once the Christmas present rush is over I intend on making lots more of these, I have been given lots of curtains to make them  Smiley

Thanks for looking
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Key fob hardware in the UK on: October 02, 2008 03:04:26 AM
Does anyone know where I can buy key fob hardware like this?

Either in the UK or that will ship to the UK?

I have been looking everywhere.

8  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Finding out of print fabric on: July 22, 2008 06:49:23 AM
Where are the best places to find out of print or hard to find fabrics?

I have tried ebay but the only seller that has what I want only has FQ's (already cut) I really need a yard or so uncut.

Is there somewhere I can post a wanted ad to see if anyone has any spare?

Thanks in advance!  Smiley

I made teacher survival bags for my sons teachers as an end of year present  Cheesy
It was just a small tote bag filled with nice things they might like to help them recover from teaching a class of 4/5 year olds!

And the contents:- a lavender pillow, tissue cozy, small bottle of wine, chocolate and I added a bath bomb after I took the pictures

Any comments appreciated!
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Camera bag for a friend on: June 29, 2008 01:59:42 PM
After seeing a camera bag someone else made on another forum I frequent I decided to have again and make one for a friend for her birthday.  Smiley

It is a simple messenger bag style with removable padded inserts to protect the camera. The bag can used as a normal messenger bag if the padding is removed.

It is made with home dec weight faux suede, lined with a shower curtain (I wanted some kind of waterproofing and this was the best I could come up with at short notice Cheesy) The padded bits were made with foam from an exercise mat my mum was throwing away and more faux suede, this time from a pair of trousers! The strap was cut from another bag because I was too lazy to make one!

There is a simple pocket on the front under the flap and a zip pocket across the flap.
