11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Revamped Buttercup Bag on: April 27, 2009 06:37:02 PM
This is another version of the famous buttercup bag. I have added pair of handles sewn between the top and bottom fabrics, I added only 2 pleats instead of 5 and added an interior pocket. I have also used a lightweight interfacing on the outside fo the bag and a fleece type of interfacing on the interior to give the bag some bulk. I also added a magnetic closure. Next time I will enlarge the pattern. It is very cute but a little small.

12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Checkbook Covers on: March 28, 2009 09:57:36 PM
Here are some checkbook covers that I have been making this week. They are fun to make and don't take much fabric.

C and C appreciated.
Thanks for looking
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Diaper Bag from Amy Butler Fabric on: January 27, 2009 11:52:28 AM
This is a bag that I designed for a co-worker who wanted a messenger style diaper bag. It has a total of 11 pockets. I used Amy Butler Fabric for the sides back and front flap. I used upholstrey weight batting between the fabric layers. C and C welcome.

I also made a matching diapler wipe and diaper holder.

14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Mini Messenger Bags Inspired by Heart of Mary on: November 23, 2008 10:26:18 PM
I started by making a small 8 x 9 inch bag out of Care Bear fabric for a silent action at our school. I didn't get a picture of that one but it tured out really cute. I then decided that these would also be a good size for adults.
I have added a back pocket, 4 pockets on the inside and a zippered pocket on the inside. I have aslo added a clip for attaching keys.

The first bag is made from a tapestry remenant from Joann's and a faux leather fabric from the local fabric warehouse.

The second one is made from Casino fabric. I forgot to add the back pocket to this one and did not want to tear it apart to add it.

The last one is a bag that I  made for my friend's birthday with a brocade remenant and some black shiny faux suede fabric. It has a black interior.

Let me know what you think.

15  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Japanese print purse on: October 24, 2008 08:51:37 PM
This purse was made like an oversized triangle pouch. I added a false bottom, zippered pocket, a flap and strap. Let me know what you think.

16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Small zippered pouches on: October 24, 2008 08:27:01 PM
Here are a couple of zippered coinpurse size pouches that I made recently. I used a 5 inch zipper. I would make them small but can't find shorter zippers. I used batting between the layers to give them some bulk.

I added a strap and some small pockets to this one to make a tiny wristlet.

There is also a small pocket on the other side. This side has slots for 3 cards.
17  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Experimenting with wallets on: October 15, 2008 07:33:43 PM
I have been experimenting with wallets for the last couple of days. I made three wallets for my sons. The first one is made from black vinyl fabric and a camo remnant which I bought at Joann's. The only problem was sewing through all the layers when making the credit card slots. The second one is made from black vinyl and rip stop nylon. It was much easier to sew. I used black Velcro as a closure for the coin pouch on both. I made the card slots horizontal instead of vertical on the second wallet which allowed for fewer layers to sew through. They want the wallets to close with Velcro also so back to the drawing board. I don't want to wreck the coin pouch. Any ideas?

18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tote made with Amy Butler Fabric on: September 30, 2008 09:51:02 PM
This is a tote that I designed myself and is made from some Amy Butler Daisy chain fabric that I recently purchased. I started off with a McCall's pattern then changed everything. The dimensions for the sides and bottom were wrong. I have added a magnetic snap, false bottom, strip along the top, and pockets.

Here is a picture of the inside of the bag.

Below is a penguin's gone wide tote tote I made after fixing the dimensions on the pattern.

19  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / 3 Zippered Pouches on: August 22, 2008 06:36:54 PM
Here are three zippered pouches I made today with tutorials from this site.

The pyramid bag came from this tutorial:


I need to do a little more finishing on the inside of this one. I have not figured out how to finish nicely like the others there are not many seams to leave open.

The three sided pouch came from this tutorial:
The candy pouch has the same dimensions as the tutorial. I just added the strap.

I made the second one larger to accommodate a 9 inch zipper. I also added straps to turn them into wristlets.

Let me know what you think.
20  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My First Attempt at Messenger Bags on: August 19, 2008 09:48:58 PM
I just finished these 2  messenger bags. I used the following tutorial but made a few changes:


I reduced the size to 80 percent and added pockets and a zippered pocket. I got a little carried away with the straps. These bags would be good for basketball players.  Cheesy

Here is a picture of the first one:

Here is a picture of the inside:

Here is the second one:

Now the zippered pocket:

And the pockets:

Let me know what  you think.
