1  Holy Shift, Batman! It's a Wallet! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by simplyjustme on: April 11, 2010 10:11:25 PM
So I was inspired by graverobbergirl's Star Trek Wallet (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=176750.0), and I decided that it was time to retire my old duct tape wallet and try to make a new one! I had this random Japanese Batman promotional comicbook, so I decided to use it as the base of my new wallet.

I lined it with red silk, sewed in pockets for credit cards and what not, used a strip of velcro to keep it closed, and then covered the whole thing in packing tape so that it would be durable. It's entirely held together by hand-stitching, and I'm proud to say I've been using it for four months and it's held up surprisingly well!

Here are some pics:

2  S.P.E.W. Hat :D in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by simplyjustme on: August 22, 2009 09:45:42 PM
So I was outside all week for a camp that I work at, and it was soooo cold. Lucky me, I was working at a sewing camp, so I decided to make a hat out of an old skirt. The waistband of the skirt became the hat band, and I embroidered S.P.E.W. (from harry potter) on the side Smiley

3  Magazine Clutch in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by simplyjustme on: August 22, 2009 09:39:02 PM
So I saw this really cool purse made of magazines the other day, and I decided that I would like to try something like it. However, I wanted a shape that could hold more stuff, so I decided to make a clutch that would have folded side panels. One magazine, half a roll of packing tape, and hours later, this is the final product Smiley
