1  cute summer handbags. [5 images] in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by chainreaction on: May 31, 2005 07:29:42 PM

i wanted to make some bags that were simple and cute, and quite easy to make.
i'm hoping to make more and sell them over the summer.

i was thinking of asking around $10-15 for them, what do you think? thanks!!

i am in LOVE with your bag.
i especially love the camo with the heart fabric.
so i had to make my own... i'm not totally satisfied with my pleats, but i think after a few tries i should get better. also this was my first purse with a zipper, and i'm happy how it turned out.

3  Re: rounder roomy bag tutorial in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by chainreaction on: September 02, 2004 09:01:03 PM
thank you so much for this wonderful tutorial!
when i saw it i knew a bag like this would be the perfect gift for my friend's birthday coming up.
i made the bag a tiny bit bigger, but kept the rest the same.
here's what i came up with:

navy blue cord with an awesome pink, red and orange lining. it will be difficult to give away!
thanks again   Smiley

one question though. i found that when i placed the lining inside the bag that it was a bit bunchy and didn't fit very well, as you can see in the picture. do you think this could be prevented by cutting out the triangles in the lining as you did the outer fabric?

when i saw this table i knew i had to make it for my friend's birthday.
it took me awhile [her bday was july 3rd], but i finally finished it today. i'm so happy with the results!
i just hope that the grout dries well.

as you can see i had a bit of trouble with the grout around the edges, but overall it was ok.

does anyone have any suggestions of how to take care of the table top?

thanks again for the great idea! and sorry for the big pics  Undecided

5  yet another set of felt flowers in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by chainreaction on: August 30, 2004 09:09:03 AM
alright. i know i'm not the first person to post felt flowers. and i'm sure many of you are getting sick of them by now, lol. BUT i was really happy with how these turned out so i just had to post them.

in the centres i put either a small clear bead or a small clear button. i used contrasting thread to attach the smaller petal to the bigger petal, and to attach the bead or button. and i'm planning to make many more!!

6  pink and beigh colored wallet! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by chainreaction on: May 29, 2004 02:54:09 PM
i looked at various posts featuring wallets throughout the site and took a bit of inspiration from each of them. i basically "winged" it and came up with this. i'm feeling lazy right now so i won't post a tutorial, but if anyone wants one i'll put it up later.



inside the bill part

i accented it with light pink thread. oh and although i owe credit to many people for their wonderful wallets, i think i should make a special note to thank Treasure Cats post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6473.0 because that's where i got the idea for the ribbon.

here's mine! i kind of used how phunkorama said to make it, and kind of just made up the rest. i love it and can't wait to make more!

extremely blurry picture of me modeling the purse.

the colors of the fabric don't really match the book, but i love it anyway!

I was thinking about doing that to and old coat of my dads like a year ago. Thank you for posting. I very muhc enjoy my new bag

how did you reinforce the straps on the sides? i was thinking i should probably do it to my bag, because i'm carrying my books in them and they're pretty heavy. did you just go over the straps a few times? looks great by the way !! Cheesy

9  Tutorial: from coat to messanger bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by chainreaction on: January 26, 2004 06:03:19 PM
alright. so i have been wanting to make a messanger bag for awhile. and i've been wanting to make it out of cord, or something else as thick. yet everytime i went to the store to look at fabric, i would look at it longingly knowing i could never bring myself to spend that much.

and then i had a great idea! what if i bought something at frenchys [used clothes] and used that material? so that's exactly what i did.




it holds two binders... so hopefully i'll be able to use it as a bookbag seeing as the one i have now is falling apart.

it was the first time using interfacing, and i really liked it. i'm definitely going to have to use it for future projects. andd i'm very proud of this bag Smiley


i have 3 rectangles of outer (10" by 14"), 3 rectangles of lining (10" by 14"), 2 strips of outer (10" by 4"), 2 strips of inner (10" by 4"), 2 strips of outer (14" by 4") and 2 strips of inner (14" by 4"). phew that was confusing. PLUS fabric for the strap which isn't here... and i didn't measure it. :/

then i made two uhh things out of the inner and outer fabric.

and the outer, and lining for flaps.

i hope this gives you more of an idea, if you have anymore questions please ask !

10  my first bags! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by chainreaction on: January 16, 2004 02:06:25 PM
alright! so these are the first two bags i've made. i used this tutorial to make both, yet with slight alterations to the sizes.

i made this one as sort of a proto-type.

and my bigger version:




i made the second one out of an old t-shirt and some teenaged mutant ninja turtles fabric i had. i noticed some bunching/pleating while sewing, and i think it's because the t-shirt is kind of stretchy... anyone have any suggestions as to how i could fix that next time? i'm not really happy with the strap, because there's a lot of bunching/pleating, and so therefore i haven't attached it yet, only with safety pins.
