1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / latest but last collection of bags on: February 13, 2006 04:43:44 AM
hi pals,

i'm back after a pretty long time. my internet service was down for about a month so in the meantime i made a few new bags to keep meself busy. now i'm just tired of these, dunno y, so thought of quitting making more bags. well, 3 r under construction right now. would post them soon. oh well, lets get on...

my cousin who just luved my store bought bag (blue one) wanted one too...

so heres my creation, she luved it sooo much. i appliqued the flowers. made a pocket in the front, one in the back and one inside.

this one's made of  black dotted vinyl, added a mirror pocket inside, this is for my cousin hafsa.

i luv this skipping bag, wanted to make it in black but couldn't find a suitable fabric, so i used dark grey instead. i luv the piping touch.

...here with inner pockets.

of all the jordy bags i've made till now, this is the best. i used a black/biege net here with red sead beads to give it a finished look.

following klinga's small handbag tut, i made this for my cousin, isma.

inspired by muchachak's embossed vinyl purse, i made these. still couldn't get a hang of it, there r some minor mistakes.

and a black one too...

last but not least a jordy bag for my niece, janita.

thanks for lookin... Smiley

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / i ruined my bag's bottom (with 10 small pics) on: December 20, 2005 10:36:58 PM

i saw a cute leather bag in a mag n thought of giving it a try. i took about three days to get started. it all went fine.... here's the front, made of black (slightly pebbled) vinyl. i machine stitched a flower in the front.

the back with a zipper pocket...

the top...

the zipper end...

the zipper sides...

the lining...

the detail...

this is the most bad part, the ruined bottom  Cry

so i thought of covering it with a cloth padding...

i was so disheartened, that i swore not to make bags for a whole week (my bro n sis were very happy at my decision). i thought of giving it to my sis-in-law but now i don't wish to give this spoiled bag to her. what do u guys think? is it worth giving as a present.

thnks for lookin.

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / my PINK zip top bags on: December 06, 2005 12:59:48 AM
hiya girls,

i made these lovely bags recently. this one is a slouchy bag. thnx to tinafish 4 the wonderful tut. its made of flannel, my fav. fabric, so soft n cushy. i lined it with tea pink cotton fabric. no inside pockets Sad

since i luv zip top bags as things r more safe n secure, i was compelled to make this bag. i made it by adding the zipper part of the slouchy bag to the top of skipping bag. it was fun. made of thick cotton fabric n lined by the same tea pink cotton fabric i used in my slouchy bag.

this is a jordy *quilted* bag with a zip top. i used batting inside, it was a pain in the ass, seriously. made of thin cotton, so i thought of using batting to give it some shape. lined by shocking pink cotton. added a zipper pocket in this one  Cheesy

thnx for lookin Smiley
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / How to Make a PENCIL CASE in just 10 mins. (PICS FIXED) on: November 16, 2005 11:27:59 PM
finally i made myself a pencil case. had been planning about it for months. here i go...

n here's my tut...

take a piece of desired fabric, i took about 10" x 8". fold in half. cut squares at both ends of the bottoms (jordy's tip) i cut out 1.25" x 1.25" squares. also mark about 1" at top (both sides) n cut it diagonally.

when opened it'll look like this.

now u'll add the zipper. fold down the fabric about a quater inch n place it on the zipper. sew.

for sewing the other side, open the zipper completely, mark where the fabric edges meet. fold down, pin it in place n sew.

ur zipper part is done. turn wrong side out. keep the zipper half open. now sew the sides as shown.

now pinch the bottom n sew.

ur DONE! turn it right side out.


p.s any comments, questions, suggestions are most welcomed. <3

6  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / *STRETCH MARKS* on: July 19, 2005 12:38:37 AM
Hiya gals, I got this info from a wonderful site www.pioneerthinking.com I thought of sharing these tips with ya all and I quote:

Olive Oil - by DK2THOU
Olive oil is the answer to everything! I learned from reading the Bible just how valuable olive oil is. It is so good for your body inside and out. I use it all the time in the kitchen but also also on my skin, hair and lips. I believe this is why I didn't get stretch marks when I was pregnant.

Stretch Marks - by BARBARA B/ LOS ANGELES, CA
A family member told me years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter to rub pure cocoa butter twice daily over my stomach and breasts. When my daughter was born, there were no stretch marks at all on my stomach. Now in my fifties, I've been passing this information on to my daughter, daughters of friends and anyone I knew who was pregnant. My daughter now has 3 sons and no stretch marks. But once you have stretch marks it is difficult to get rid of. The key is prevention.
Some seemed skeptical but they did it and no stretch marks. It really works.
I used to buy the Hersheys cocoa butter directly from a pharmacy.

Wish u luck... cheers.

The front, DDM is short for designing and dress making. Made this one for my sis.
