11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Clutch for teacher on: March 13, 2010 05:36:20 AM
It was teacher appreciation week and I made this clutch for my sons 1st grade teacher.  I asked her what her favorite colors were and she said green & purple.  So I used a beautiful green/brown fabric for the outside and green for the inside.  The bird applique on the outside was handmade by me and is the same green fabric as the lining and the eye is a purple jewel that I glued on.  And a clutch wouldn't be complete without a wristband.  Here it is without further adeu...my first ever clutch! Smiley

12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tennessee Bag, Denim & orange cotton quilted on: March 01, 2010 09:02:06 PM
Lotsa pics...My friend liked my brown bag so much she requested I make her one just like it but with a big orange T on the front for Tennessee.  I made the pattern for the bag myself just by what kind of style I wanted & size.  I handmade the applique using the fabric for the lining, the outer fabric is a stretchy blue denim with a peek-a-boo bit of orange on the top end of the zipper and the lining is orange & quilted with soft fleece to give it stability & softness.  Two denim inner pockets as well and I added my label.  What do you think?   Kiss

13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My first glasses cases on: February 22, 2010 09:12:39 PM
Well I took my first stab at making a couple glasses cases.  Overall they will work but I need to work on the sizes and figure out how to get the fabric on the inside of the envelope style one to not be rippled inside.  Let me know what you think and if you know of any links to some good tutes that will help me out.  I just kinda winged it by placing my glasses on some paper and sketching a pattern out.  Thanks for looking.

14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Cherries Jubilee on: February 06, 2010 12:11:42 AM
I started off making a hobo bag but then I missed a few steps at the start and decided to wing it and call it my own.  The outer fabric is a denim weight with black/white stripes.  I handmade the cherries applique on front, magnetic closure, 2 pockets inside with matching outer fabric, lining is pink with little bubbles.  Handle matches both fabrics.  This is a gift for a friend...she saw one her friend bought and wanted one like it.  Although it's not as big as her friends, I think this one is better.  Smiley  Let me know what you think. The only thing that's wrong is I ran out of clear thread so to close the hole up in the lining, I used white thread and it shows.  LOL

15  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Hawaiian Style on: February 04, 2010 08:35:45 PM
Okay, maybe not Hawaiian style per say, but the print of florals reminds me of Hawaiian prints.  I made my own pattern for this one, used some denim type fabric with a floral print, edged it with lace and added a magnetic closure.  Inside is a blue fabric with white print and yellow pockets.  What you can't see is there is 2 large pockets on the outer edges and then on the inner part of the pocket, I made 2 pencil/pen spaces.  The handles are connected using wood napkin rings that I got at a consignment store I think.  Thanks for looking.

I used the ever lovely tutorial from ShannyAnn to make this wallet & 2 more like it.  What fun, just like everyone said...more to come with different fabrics.  I hope you like it.

17  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Brown Micro Suede look-a-like zip top purse on: January 20, 2010 09:12:29 PM
I had so much fun making this purse!  Let me start with it's been forever and a day since I've sewn anything and my first attempt after taking a vacation of a couple years went wobbly.  This project however went very well.  I searched for ideas on what kind of purse to make but just couldn't find anything that sparked my interest.  So onto paper I went to sketch out an idea, draw a pattern and just do it.  The fabric I used I got years ago from Walmart I think.  It's a soft cotton but looks like micro suede with criss cross stitches on it.  I stitched over those to hold some thick felt to give it sturdiness.  Then the lining I think I got from the Goodwill.  There is two pockets inside and I used my new labels I bought from someone on Etsy.  The handles have roping inside that I got from a friend of mine at work, she was going to use it for necklaces but they ended up looking to gawdy and I acquired them.  They work very well with handles like this.  I just cut fabric to length, folded it over a couple times and placed the roping in the middle.  I then sewed up the edge...then sewed it onto the outer fabric.  Now I shopped around numerous tutorials for a zip top on a purse and couldn't find one that wasn't too long to figured out, didn't require me to disassemble the zipper or just didn't make sense.  So I tried my own ideas on a few small pouches...all of which didn't work.  Then I dreamed of a way (crazy, I know), and just did it tonight.  Luckily it worked!!

18  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Build A Bear clothing patterns? on: April 03, 2007 08:03:48 PM
I bought my son a Build A Bear yesterday and although I don't think the clothing for the bears are too expensive, I can make them for so much less and have more fun with it.  Does anyone know if there is a place for patterns making clothing for them?  I looked on ebay and found people selling tons of clothing for them or basic vests made by them, but no patterns.  I googled it and found other companies that made other bears and clothing but still no patterns.  Anyone know of any patterns to purchase or any free ones online?  If not, I'm gonna take a swing at winging it on my own.  Thanks in advance!
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Hanky Halter on: March 13, 2007 02:53:28 PM
This is the first piece of clothing I've made since right after high school.  I used some hankerchief fabric, some red Grosgrain ribbon for the halter strap & accents, and some black really soft material for the front.  The back is also made of the hanky material.  I got inspired by CraftyZary's tutorial (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=36887.0) and winged it from there.  What do you think?

20  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Stripes, flowers & a zipper...oh my!! on: January 28, 2007 02:26:49 PM
I was finally able to try this tute out from Kaka and wow was it ever an easy bag to make and so cute to finish!!

My 4 yr old is modeling in the first picture.   Grin  I can't wait to make another one.  I used a canvas type material with stripes in fall/winter shades and used cotton tan/white check fabric for the lining.  There's a pocket inside that's the same material as the outside.  I also embellished it with these cute little flower appliques I got from Walmart last year in their clearance section...all I had to do was iron them on.  I attached the handles using some D-rings but the straps were a bit wider than I needed so they are a tad bit bulky.  I love how it turned out and can't wait to do another one.  Let me know what you think.  Smiley
