1  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Modcloth dress... Petaluma.. on: August 18, 2010 10:36:27 PM
Hello all!!
I saw this dress on modcloth and i just loved it.. but the elastic at the waist doesn't really convince me..or the double skirt... so I kinda want to make it myself, and I was hoping someone out there would help me find a pattern that looks similar.. it doesn't even have to be for a dress.. a top would do.. Smiley
or maybe some guidelines on how to pull it off..or a tutorial would well..

heres the link to the dress...


Thank youuu...and good night!
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / my new canteen... NO.. its a bag! -_-* on: July 09, 2010 07:53:35 PM
Ok, so my sisters first thought when she saw the bag was.. "hey.. heading out to the desert?".. but whatever she's not gonna get me down!.. although it does look kinda like it.. lol

anyways..I made this (canteen).. ahem! BAG! Smiley

accesorized with pins and metal studs from an old belt..

peek inside, the sewing is awful! but its only my first try.. Smiley

detail of the strap.. I like this very much Smiley

P.S: IIIiiinn case you guys are wondering, the fabric was originally gray, I dyed it black and then tried to bleach it.. but this has to be the best fabric in the world, all that was bleached out was the dye :O.. and some of the black blotches you see are diluted acrylic paint.. oh! and its crossbody!

love to hear what you guys think! Smiley
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / duffel but maybe not.. kinda circular crossbody purse. on: July 08, 2010 09:18:32 PM
Hello beautiful people!!..

I'm in the middle of making a bag kinda like this one...


the problem is..I'm stuck in the lining part.. you see when you make a bag and you assemble the lining and the bag separate, and then you put one inside the other sew, turn and sew the opening?, well.. i dont know how to do that when theres a zipper involved. I already have the "gusset" (dont know if thats how its called but its the width part). And from there forward I'm stuck.. I tried searching for a duffel bag tut and kinda use that as principal, but it doesn't add up in my mind... or I dont know how to make it add up!  Undecided

should I just attach it like the newly I am and put bias tape on the showing seams or is anybody out there who can help me!?  Undecided..
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bag from a brown paper one!!... well.. almost! :) on: May 26, 2010 07:31:29 PM
Ok, people... heres the story... I bought this bag at this charity bazzar..its been sitting on my closet for almost 3 years... and last week I finally decided to do something about it...
I was never gonna use it.. you see it looked almost exactly like the brown paper bag that right in the bottom right corner that says "Yesterdays books" ..sorry I forgot to take a before picture!


It was a Moschino bag..made of wool.. but rather boring..as you can imagine from the pic..I had to hand stitch it cuz my machine wouldn't cooperate.. but it was soooo worth it.. It makes the project a lot more yours.. ya know?

ok no more blabbing..on to the pics! Smiley

better view of the interior.. an Ipod inside for sizing.. and oh so proud of the invisible stitching i used to attach the lining to the flap.. woot!  Grin

sorry for the bad quality.. something happened to my camera..I think its dead now..  Undecided

C&C more than welcome! Smiley
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / I made a bag... well more like 2! :) on: May 04, 2010 11:12:17 PM
Hello my fellow crafsters!
Its been a while since I posted something, I've been working on my thesis and all that.. but now that I'm done..and currently unemployed.. I have all the time in the world for sewing...

so, I made this tote bag, it's supposed to be exited or sarcastic...but the suspension marks came out too big..(I really dont know its that the proper term in english, they're just three consecutive points..and I used them A LOT)

exclamation point in the front...

the back with "suspension marks"

inside... all my stuff and a zippered pocket!!! yay!!   Grin

and this one was inspired by this bag I found on etsy...

I loved it.. but I'm in no position to pay 42.00 and ship it all the way from Malaysia... so I made one myself..but dont get me wrong, it's totally worth it... my goodness was that bow a pain!

it's made of cream canvas I bought on sale.. It came out a little bit bigger than I expect it but I'm happy with it.. you can never have too many large bags!  Wink

inside: ramdon books, this pocket came to be a little crooked.. but its all good Smiley...

for the inside pocket I used this wonderfull tut...

and for the straps a used this AWESOME no "turning the strap" tut

I'm debating whether to do the topstick on the cream one ... what do you guys think?..should I..?.. shouldn't  I?

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / This top needs a lil something something.... on: April 25, 2010 08:38:01 PM
Hello beautiful people!!...
woah! its been a while since I've been around here... but now that I'm done with my thesis...and uni its all crafts and sewing now... well... untill I get a job Smiley....

so.. I started this top a while a ago... and finished it tonight... well... its not done yet..I hope...
it needs something... but i dont know what... maybe something around the neck?.. in the middle?.. beats me!...

the fabric its a pale yellow-ish and it has spots of gold glitter.. and I dont kave any more left.. Sad.. so whatever I add to it... has to be lace, of some other fabric.. but i dont know if I can find the same color...
I plan on making it a lil bit longer... its looks kinda like a bell :S

ok, enough talking! heres the pic!

sorry for the bad webcam pic... i dont know where my camara is.. and even if I find it... I bet it doesnt have any batteries...

P.S: its soooooo good to be back!! Smiley

Hello all!! I was wondering if pellon was the only kind of interfacing out there... Its what i've used like.. twice cuz i dont like the paper-y feeling it gives to the bags.. i was thinking of something a little more on the soft side.. but still hard enough for some structure.. and i know they come in dif. numbers and what not..anyways!! thanx in advance!
