1  First bag in a long time in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by poetrae on: January 12, 2016 09:34:39 AM
Over the past few years I had stopped sewing because my handed down machine had broke & a lot was going on in my life so I put sewing off. (took up look knitting for a while).

Well for christmas with the help of my mom & her fiance -- I got a new machine Cheesy And I've been going away at a few things. I have my first quilt start but I've also made a few bags.

Today I finished this one. It's pretty simple, wonky, and a mess but I like it, lol.

It was actually finished last night but this morning I decided I really didn't like how wide it was so I darted around the handles to make it a bit smaller at the opening. I gotta say that I'm pretty pleased with myself. I would have finished it quicker if I didnt have Making a Murderer on in the background, haha.

2  T-Shirt Recon : Shopping Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by poetrae on: September 27, 2011 03:42:44 PM
I was googling what to do with some old tshirts; and I cam across this ( http://www.sustainlane.com/reviews/how-to-make-recycled-t-shirt-tote-bag/USCQTVLAWOW98XCSKVFK128OMO3A ) -- and i thought that was perfect Smiley I did only one thing different, i wanted the bottom to bunch up (which was my first time attempting this) which I think went pretty well Cheesy

I used one of my favorite shirts my little brother grew out of Sad I didn't want to see it go ( plus i did happen to buy it for him.lol)

The not so great "action" shot -- i just happen to have a few boxes of crackers in my room to test it. lol
