21  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Quilted Roses makeup bag w/scent. on: October 28, 2017 03:19:49 AM
Quilted Roses makeup bag. The quilting is around the roses. The closure is white velcro as I had no zipper. Outside quilt cotton fabric is from a roses FQ I bought at a bookfair crafts table long ago no name on it.Inside the fabric is some leftover Kona cotton cardinal red. And the inner/lining fabric peeps out into the floralcover fabric. So is not binding what you see. And again had no binding in red or green so came up with this. Is no pattern is something I came up with. I cut with scissors and still manage to cut freestyle no paper template used here.
I prefer sort of nothing straight so is uneven.
My makeup bag is scented, I dab some rose aromatherapy oil on it regularly. (www.aqua-oleum.co.uk/ the 5% rose maroc I dab it on the black parts of fabric, so drop of oil is not seen on fabric)
Instead of essential oils some of my other bags have tiny mini homemade potpourri pouches to scent them.
Size of makeup bag is 22 cm width and 16 cm tall measured over the tallest/widest part tapering off to less cm and it is al handsewn and hand quilted. Red 5910 cherry quilting cotton thread Gutermann. Leftover piece of Quilters Dream Poly crafts batting was used for this floral makeup bag.

23  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Xmas signatures junk journals. on: October 27, 2017 03:51:12 AM
I was looking for a way to use up lots of Xmas papers leftovers, printables, old stickers, borders, stamps etc
 Xmas junk journals signatures on YouTube were inspiration for this and made these, one is the cover of an Xmas signature has 8 pages all halves of A4 so a folded A5. Sewing is with sharp embroidery needle and Ikea red cotton thread. Size is A6 so card size. And the filler pages are photocopy paper sometimes plain sometimes stained with tea or coffee. The picture below I used a coffee pad to stain so as not to cover all the white. The scalloped edge pocket I use a ruler with half round shape it is still attached to the cardstock front and folded over glued edges. The cover has some gum arabic diluted with water which gives a sheen to paper cover it is not seen in scan ,
 the left side red glitter is with acrylic gloss gel and again it is not seen in scan

27  EUROPE / ITALY / Fabric & Beads shops Italy online? on: February 27, 2017 05:10:27 AM

28  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Renaissance Saccoccia pocket diy? on: February 27, 2017 12:38:47 AM
I was google searching images for ideas for leftover beads and saw some accessoire on 16th century Italian paintings which caught my eye. I looked up what it is. Is a sort of pocket/pouch called saccoccia and a sort of precursor of the modern handbag.
Not sure if my post is for the bags/purses forum or more for the Costume clothes forum. Has anyone made this?
There are some pattern diy sketches if you search images.
I do not have much apparel fabric and only some too thin silk. No taffeta no brocade etc. Are there places that sell online small pieces of the richer fabrics? Does it exist fabric lookalikes of Renaissance era to buy online?
I did not use use interfacing as mention is made of inbetween fabric so used some cotton fabric.
I have plenty of seasonal Xmas/ holiday quilt cotton fabric leftovers so yesterday I spend sunday afternoon on a poinsettia saccoccia.
I have no camera so no picture alas. I handsew and go slow. Still have to do the ribbon attachment bit. Some painting show it attached to the pouch and some site write about it being on a slider/tube so it can  move around the waist.Today I continue to finish it hopefully. It is a fun project to do.
