1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / felt owl camera case w/ sequins and ribbons! on: December 27, 2005 08:44:29 PM
I got a new camera for X-mas, so I just had to make something to carry it in. I was playing around with embroidering an owl on some felt and decided to put it on a camera case. The flash makes it look a little funny... and it's not actually lopsided - that's just from the angle at which the picture was taken. The embroidery isn't actually all wonky like it looks in the picture either...

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / chartreuse ribbon cuff w/ tiny bow! on: December 27, 2005 10:05:41 AM
I made this cuff for a swap, but I don't want to say who it's for so my partner is surprised! I was just too excited so I had to post. It's lined with a shimmery pink fabric on the other side, and it has a velcro closure. Oh, and the base isn't just made with that chartreuse grosgrain - it's all on army green suiting fabric.

And the long view...

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / "distressed" clutch w/ chartreuse ribbon on: December 27, 2005 09:52:05 AM
This is my third finished project using an old sewing machine I recently taught myself how to use. It is made of a lightweight blackish-green tweed plaid (i think it is suiting fabric) and is lined with an army green fabric of the same type. It is "embellished" (I love that word!) with chartreuse grosgrain ribbon, a vintage-y button, and more of the same army green fabric. It also has a velcro closure.
Because I'm new to sewing, I thought I would give the clutch a slighly "distressed" look so it wouldn't have to be so polished... cheating, I know - but I think it actually turned out pretty well. I frayed the army green fabric a bit and did some unpolished stitching to attach details to the clutch.
Tell me what you think!
