11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / The Nine Bag on: August 17, 2009 09:04:02 AM
So I made this bag from this pattern. http://all-tied-up-in-stitches.blogspot.com/2006/06/little-something-for-you.html Which I added several more rows to the body and to the strap, which was good because this wool felted up a little tighter than I thought it would.

Before felting

After felting

It was cute but I thought it needed something else. So I embroidered it. I was lazy and didn't feel like dragging out a hoop. This is my first one I've done with no pattern, I just did it from the picture.

The bag is too small for my current wallet so I lined it and added some pockets. I need to go get some round elastic so I can secure my cards and such in better, I have some cute leaf buttons I'm going to use to loop the elastic over.

C&C welcome
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pat Benetar LP Purse on: August 11, 2009 08:31:06 AM
So I've been in love with the LP purses for a while, but I'm too cheap and too crafty to pay someone else for them. So using some of the various tutorials out there I kind of made my own pattern and went from there.

So I heated the bottom with my blow dryer and bent away. It's riveted together at the bottom and the lining is riveted in as well.

The strap is made of a set of old Bass guitar strings, which while a great idea, does not feel so great when your shoulder is sun burnt. Sad

The lining with lots of pockets for all my bits and bobs I simply MUST carry

The one problem I've had with it is the bend is the weakest part, so the other day when I was getting in my car.... well I had a little squish and it broke at the curve. Sad  So I'm already working on a new one. Cheesy

C&C welcome.
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My first purse and a couple wallets - Pic Heavy on: March 29, 2009 07:33:53 PM
So after being told by a woman I worked with that I needed to stop making things for other people I took her advice and made this purse using McCall's 4400 pattern.

The purse has the same lining as the wallet.

It was my first time working with vinyl, I was glad I had a costuming friend tell me about a walking foot or else I'd never have finished it.

I finished the purse and had plenty of fabric left over and decided to make a wallet using the tutorial I found here http://elily00.wordpress.com/tutorials/wallet/

I had some problems with the vinyl when it got to finishing time... but  I'm not complaining for my first one.

I have a lot of cards so I added another row to it so they all stack vertically instead of horizontally.

Once I finished my own of course I had a friend beg me to make her one. I'm not usually a fan or pink OR zebra print but she loves it so, whatever makes her happy.

Well I hope you like them and  I welcome any C&C's.
14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My First Ever Knitting Roll on: February 24, 2009 11:46:12 AM
I didn't know where exactly to put these. They're sewn but obviously for knitting... such a dilemma. Well feel free to move it where it belongs.

So here they are, my first attempts at knitting rolls. They're for a swap mate who has a large number of double points and circular needles, all kept in a Ziploc bag.

So with no pattern, just a rough idea I went about remedying that problem. Here's the results. I hope you like them. They've had me thinking that maybe I could sell them but then again, what do I know.
