I really love these bags - I'd love to try one for myself! Do you know the approximate dimensions of the bags you made (either of the original fabric you cut out or the finished product)? Thanks so much for answering our questions. Smiley

oooh, that's so neat!

and i feel like the answer to this is going to be pretty simple, but how exactly did you do the leaves? did you cut them from the original long strip of green, or did you somehow attach them?

That looks great! Is that canvas you used for the outside? And did you do anything extra to reinforce the strap? I want to make myself a bag for school, but I'm worried about the strap being too flimsy.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Peter Pan/Rounded collar? on: December 27, 2004 11:32:33 PM
I have a quick, reconstruction sort of question.

Does anyone know of a way I could add a simple Peter Pan collar to a t-shirt? I can kind of see how to do it in my head, but I'm not entirely sure how you... maneuver it, I guess. I saw a girl a few weeks ago wearing a navy blue t-shirt with a simple white round collar, and it was about the cutest thing I've ever seen; I must have one.

Thank you so much!!
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Using vinyl for mp3 player case? on: November 08, 2004 05:35:23 PM
First of all, I'm a new poster here, but not a new reader. My roommate and I have been perusing the boards like mad - so many Christmas present ideas! I hope we'll be able to contribute. Smiley

Anyway, I have a proposal. I would like to sew a case for my mp3 player, but the situation is a touch different because I don't have an iPod. I have a Creative Nomad Jukebox Zen Xtra (yes, it's a mouthful, but it's a fantastic player), pictured here:

As you can see in this yucky compressed picture, it still has a display on the front, but the controls are on the sides, rather than also on the front.

I was thinking of doing a little box-type case (like the Jordy bags, but on a much smaller scale) with a flap on the back, closed with a snap or something similar. To reach the controls, I was thinking of just making slits in the sides (and one on the flap for the headphone jack), and hemming them - does that sound like a good idea? And my main issue lies in the fact that I want to be able to see the display when the player is inside the case. I would ideally like to have a hole in the front, covered by clear vinyl. How difficult would this be to work? I'm pretty much a novice to sewing, but I can follow a pattern and have a very helpful mom. Wink

Does this sound like a good plan? And if you have any better ideas, please feel free to share. Thank you in advance!
