This is cute!

It's cool when you find fabric that matches a hobby! I found cupcake fabric for the lining of a bag I made for a friend who loves making cupcakes

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Easter BanK Holiday Weekend Crafts (Photo fest) on: April 25, 2011 01:54:41 PM
So I've been off for the long weekend, Thursday to today & managed to finish 4 projects  Smiley

First an Easter Present for my sister as she's dieting so didn't want Chocolate this year, I've made a few bags for friends out of old jeans & she gave me a pair a while back so this is using the material from her jeans, lining fabric found on Ebay. Pattern was from pursepatterns.com




Second another Jeans bag for a friend who asked about a year ago for one out of an old pair of her jeans which she loved & had loads of cool pockets - took me ages to come up with a plan & get the courage to cut into her jeans.....then my machine broke (lesson learned in not sewing through too many layers of denim) I finally got it finished this weekend. I'm still not 100% certain I like it but I'm hoping she will. lining made from one of Hub's old shirts, strap made from the waistband of the jeans. This was my first go at putting in a zipper too




Third is a present for another friend's birthday in couple of weeks, she loves making cupcakes, so when I saw the pattern for this on pursepatterns.com I knew she'd love it for her birthday, bottom is made from thick cord fabric, top is a layer of plain cotton & a layer of taffetta I think with sparkly bits on it (a lot of the cupcakes she makes are covered in edible glitter) lining I found on Ebay & thought it suited perfectly



Last a present for a friend having a baby soon, I saw the tutorial for a baby change clutch on here a few weeks back from vibrant designs (link to her site http://www.vibrant-designs.net/2011/01/duo-pocket-changing-pad-tutorial.html) & thought it was a brilliant idea so I copied away - thanks  Smiley I stuggled with sewing through all the layers on the folded bit so did that by hand & instead of a velcro close I added a long strap that just gets wound round to hold it all in. Mine is made from an Amy Butler fabric with yellow fleece inside & there is a layer of plain terry towelling in between for absorbency in case of accidents (can all be machine washed no problem   Wink



Phew! C&C Welcome,

Next project is a knitting needle roll for another friend's birthday at the end of May, so I'm still planning that one...

Ooh I may copy this, we are going next year with my whole family. Might have to start soon as that's a lot of shirts......

Iblamemonkeys you must be pretty close to me (Waterlooville) Smiley

I'm midway between Portsmouth & Petersfield, Portsmouth & Southampton have some good shops & like iblamemonekeys says not far from London (hour on the train from Petersfield), Brighton & Bornemouth. There are a few Crafty places up near Andover too (just north of Winchester)

Generally the closer to london/A3/M3/Decent rail link the more expensive though
