1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / giant shopping bag/purse! on: April 11, 2011 07:29:51 AM
I sewed this bag this past weekend...first bag ever! it turned out so well i made a second one for my mom. it was originally made from a simplicity pattern for a bag that folds up into a pouch but i made the pouch too small and the bag wouldnt fit. it doesn't matter though as i have fallen so deeply in love with the bag that i carry it everywehre and never put it away!

hope you like it ... c & c welcome !

actually its a silver sharpie. i work at grand and toy (the american sister company would be office max) and we sell them for about 5 dollars . its just like a regular sharpie...but silver. i highly recommend getting one as they come in quite handy...just a tip they do tend to be a little faint on some surfaces when you first start writing...so for projects like this one i wrote the first two lines and by the third when it was super shiny and flowing well i went back and re traced the fainter ones.

I found a painting in the street,
In shades of red it looked incomplete,

I grabbed a pen and started to write,
When it was done it was quite a sight.

7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / A Couple Small and fun embroideries on: March 06, 2011 10:33:51 AM
Decided to start stitching again...so whipped up these two cute lil designs. Both very simple but still fun! I think I will frame them and hang them in my new place as I am moving in a few weeks !

First is my favorite Billy Corgan (of the smashing pumpkins) quote:

Second is my favorite Pillz-e squirrel quote (illwillpress.com):

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Beer - Tab Purse on: March 06, 2011 10:26:05 AM
I made this last summer....it literally took all summer as I was going batty linking tabs so had to take breaks here and there. I wasn't really too happy with how it turned out (but I am my biggest critic). After tossing it finished but unlined into the closet for a few months my boyfriends told me I should be proud of it and finish it. So a couple of weeks ago I whipped up the lining and I am actually pretty proud of it now. I don't use it much, but I think come summer it will become a great accessory. Only thing is I cannot take it anywhere without a million comments lol!

I have a couple hoodies that have cat ears sewn onto them...when I saw these online I had to have them! So I showed my mom and off she went...Two hours and alot of fun later ta da she created these cute lil headphones! Comments welcome Smiley I'll pass em along to the true artist....my mom!

this is awesome ! i am a huge koh fan. i have been dabbling in embroidery lately as well. how do u get such a full area (say her hair for example) ? what kind of stitch do u use for filler? i am great at outlines but have yet to figure out the *colouring* in a section u seem to have mastered!
