1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: Turning a skirt into a bag? on: May 24, 2006 05:51:00 AM
Hi animatedxantics,
I was hoping someone would reply as I would like  info. too.
I bought a straight soft leather skirt not look ago, to turn it into a bag, and I want to make as few alterations to the shape as possible and still have it look like a bag.  So far I have stitched a pocket with a bit of a pleat, behind the zip, and will line the inside of the leather later, although it is lovely and soft, pity.  The waistband  I want to leave, maybe put velcro as a closure, and maybe cut the skirt across and gather the bottom of the purse.  I have made a leather pocket, from the V slit area on the lower edge of the skirt, not sure where I will attach it.  There is enough fabric I hope to make an across the shoulder strap.

This isn't, probably, a great deal of help for you, but maybe if you look at a few tutorials, you might get more ideas.

good luck!

I rather like this bag pattern but it is in, I think, German.  I have tried free translation sites, no luck.


Hoping someone can help, as I would like to knit it.

Hyperfrec, I just love your scarf but am wondering did you do 5 rows white, 5 green, and 5 white again.?
This scarf really appeals to me.

I am sure I have seen somewhere on the net, a pattern, probably crochet, of a black bag with quite a few white cats on the sides.  Of course it might be called a tote, and the pattern was possibly free and on someones blog, can anyone help me, is it familiar?

Thanks in advance.

9  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Eczema on: June 08, 2005 12:37:48 AM
I don't suffer from eczema but think it must drive you all crazy, but I do have dermatitis and it itches and red and unsightlly.  I have used cortisone for years and now have thin skin on my forearms, causing bleeding with the slightest knock.
I have come across a natural treatment that works for me, I no longer use cortison, and it stops the itching even better and therefore I don't scratch which help the appearance also.
It's called Neem Leaf Extract (probably a spirit base, not sure), I dab it on straight from the bottle on the badly itchy spots, but if I use it in a cream base twice a day this is usually sufficient, diluted, also I add some oil, olive for instance but even sunflower seems fine.
Perhaps this might give some relief because it is recommended for ecxema and (I cant spell it) sphoriasris  mossy bites etc..

The only method that works for me is JennaPotters , its actually foolproof with me, and its easy to sew up the small section of  side asap, so you can really be sure its not twised.  Good luck.
