1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / messenger patchwork bag on: February 01, 2011 08:42:55 AM
I just made this bag and I LOVE it!!
it is a little sloppy in a couple places, but it was for me so I got over it...

I did not use a pattern (I rarely do, if I do I usually make it myself)
I had these squares of patchwork i had made over the years and this purple cord fabric i recently got that i am in love with..I had though about making a wrap skirt but wanted to work on a bag instead9 Been really into bags and wallets and such lately)

I am going to add a zipper on the top....

this is the bag

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Reversible Lunch Bag on: January 26, 2011 07:32:39 AM
I made this yesterday for my man.  He wants to start taking my amazing cooking for lunch, he can't tolerate anymore kitchen nightmares! (last time he went to "one of the best places in town" a mouse jumped out of the ceiling!!!)

I made it with great fabric on both sides, so I ended up overcasting the seams (I had never done that yet and wanted to play with it because I want to make a crazy quilt) and then reinforced that since it would be carrying stuff with a stitch for stretch fabrics.  I was lucky to receive an amazing Brother sewing machine last year for valentine's day and I am still discovering just how awesome it is!

I have always done cross stitch but lately have been trying to get better at embroidery, so I stitched a "W" his last initial on it, that is on both sides.


I LOVE the plaid fabric, I recently scored it for one or two dollars a yard.  I made him pajama pants, me pajama pants, me a long skirt, and this bag so far!
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / nintendo DS case, that could easily be a wallet on: January 25, 2011 07:03:07 AM
I made this and LOVE IT!!!!!
it is off https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=304534.0
I did not do the straps and made some slight modifications, but I LOVE IT!
I bought a TON of this gorgeous light weight purple corduroy for a dollar a yard!!!!
I think with a couple of more mods it could be a great wallet!!!

4  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Two old Dell towers on: January 06, 2011 09:35:58 AM
I have two Dell towers that are the exact same. 
I was thinking of taking all the stuff out of the inside and making something out of the towers...
any suggestions?
maybe something for my boyfriends office since he owns a website...
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Wallet on: December 16, 2010 01:06:05 PM
I just made this wallet in less than an hour for a Christmas present.
It was very easy!!

I did double chains because I wanted it to be quick, 14 rows of them.
Then I sewed the sides.
Then I made a "button" for the flap.  I have not put a snap on yet, but plan on doing that.
The button is a little off center, but I am okay with that.
The button is just a circle of fuzzy bumpy yarn.

6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / my brother and sister in laws Xmas present on: December 16, 2010 10:32:27 AM
we are huge Alabama fans, so I did this painting of Bear Bryant (the Coach)
It was super easy!!

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Record Purse on: December 16, 2010 10:26:52 AM
I made this out of some records from the thrift store.  It was so easy!!!  I sawed the record off with a hacksaw, or you could use a box cutter.  Then I have a little hand sander that I zapped it with for a few.  I sewed together the purse part from two "fat quarters" I happened to have of the same fabric.  I had kept a strap from an old bag of mine because you never know when you might need an old strap, put it on two hooks from an old belt.  I really didn't do much for the closure, just some elastic string stuff with beads, I may change that.  It is for my boyfriends daughter.  One side is "Cinderella" the other side is "The Young Rascals, Groovin'"
Now I am going to make a tote bag for the younger one with the Cinderella album cover.
