1  i made rolling luggage! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by beehart on: November 08, 2008 08:13:05 PM
so i'm really excited because i've been wanting to make luggage for a long time and haven't had the chance to.  so i made some last week and thought i'd share it.  the first is a carry on bag, the second is my rolling luggage (need to add the wheels but i know how they'll go on there!  just need to get the bits from home depot.  and the strap detaches in case i need to check it in on the plane).  what do you think?

ok, so i finished the save the dates and just ordered them!  we only need about 75, but i bought 90 just because i don't trust my handwriting skills to be perfect.  all 90 only cost me $2.30 on snapfish because i just joined (20 free 4x6 prints) and i got a coupon for 50 prints for a penny each!  i'm super excited about them.  i just think the colors look more like what i had wanted (i didn't want a white background i decided).  oh, and in case you were wondering, no i didn't dump russell for rusty, he was just worried no one would know who he was if he went by his "real" name haha. 

also, because i'm crazy excited we got the location i had been wanting, i'll post a pic of it Smiley  it's at this beautiful lakeside resort, but i wanted the country setting wedding package...we're definitely still taking pics by the lake though!

ceremony location (we won't do rose petals and will probably use their arch instead of the columns)

reception location (yep, it's a barn!  i love it!)

so i'm super excited because i found the fabric for my dress!  i found this stuff forever ago and have been spending MONTHS trying to find it again (i've been reallyreallyreally wanting a polkadotesque type fabric.  well, i did! and the best part?  i went there with a friend and bought 1/2 yard (wanted to check it against some white fabric) where the guy quoted me $5.99/yard.  pretty sweet deal, right?  well, my mom came into town that night and decided we should go get all of it the next day since it had taken me so long to find it.  well, the owner was there was almost crapped himself when we told him how much we were quoted.  he honored the $5.99/yard but apparently it was supposed to be closer to $15.99/yard, so we got a steal of a deal!  my camera died so i couldn't take a pic of the design i'm going to do.  it's a mermaid/grecian type of top, a sash at the waist, then a straight aline skirt.  i'll post pics of it when i get my muslin finished, but that won't be for a very long time seeing as how i'm not getting married til oct 3, 2009!  ok, on with the fabric pics:

the fabric fresh off the bolt:

and with some white cotton behind it (oh, i got white sateen to use behind it...wanna know the deal i got on it?  $2 for 10 yards!  yay!)

...so i just got engaged and need to start planning pronto.  it's not until fall of next year ( i just put a random date on the tester card because we can't book anything til my momma visits with the checkbook Smiley ), but my family is helping me plan from all sides of the country so we need to get organized right away.  plus, in january i'll be (hopefully) starting grad school so i won't have nearly the amount of *spare* time i do now.  now to the whole point of my post:

 so i was toying around with some save the date designs and wanted to get opinions.  i literally did this in about twenty minutes because i didn't know what else to do.  i am printing them out and mounting them on coordinating card stock then sending them as postcards.  i want to keep everything simple but i don't want it boring.  i only have photoshop for free for 30 more days so i really need to get crackin!  let me know what you think...

9  UPDATED!!! the sewing bug bit me HARD *PICTURE OVERLOAD* in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by beehart on: June 19, 2008 07:01:52 PM
for some reason this week, i went CRAZY and bought a  TON of fabric.  i was obviously in a summmery mood judging my the colors of what i picked out.  i literally have six more cuts of fabric to sew from but i wanted to get opinions of what i have done so far.

i love this bag because it has a magazine slot:

for some reason this reminds me of something good that can come out of golf pants:

finally, my reversible skull tote!  i'm just waiting on the straps to come in the mail, but i couldn't WAIT to post it!

this one just makes me want to go to the beach:

what do you guys think?

and this one is great because it just goes with everything:

UPDATE..i *found* some batteries in my boyfriend's halloween decorations (shhh...) so i was able to get my camera up and running for this one last pic.  i just finished this bag tonight and i LOVE the fabric:
