11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / I Printed On TYVEK!!!!! Looky Here!!! on: August 31, 2005 08:11:43 PM
When I was browsing this site I saw someone say I wonder if you could print on tyvek? I DID! I just traced it to a normal size of printer paper and pressed print. This was my first shot but I think it came out great! Oh and don't forget the hot pink highligher I used to add some color. I did that after I printed it out! It is my favorite Evanescence song. Well on to the piccies!

First my laptop modeling my new pouch!

I tried a close up but my crappy little web cam doesn't work so well.
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My First Pink Camo Messenger Bag! Image Heavy!!! on: August 21, 2005 06:54:19 PM
This was my first go at a messenger bag I made for a friend as a going to college gift. I didn't take the time to take measurements because I was so excited to give it as a present but I do have some fairly decent pics of it. I had to make it big enough to fit her laptop with sleeve and books etc. in it. The strap is a belt she had and so are the little bits that connect the strap to the bag. Well on with the piccies!!

Inner lining is a bright pink gingham type fabric.

The Ipod pocket and pencils holders....this more like the actual color of the lining!

And me modeling the bag, I added a ribbon flower with a big pink bead for the center and the first thing her boyfriend gave her (a bud lite bottle cap) that I made into a button and a best friend piece of lanyard my daughter made me sew on.....

all comments welcome as I am very new to this!
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / my tyvek pouches!! on: August 21, 2005 02:19:08 PM
Here are two pouches I made of tyvek (I love this stuff)! The first one I made for my friend that's going off to college in a little over a week. It has her name all over it then random stuff written on it.

The next one is for my daughter she loves handmade stuff so when dani got one she had to have one!

all comments good and bad welcome because I'm really new at this stuff!
14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Manson Stenciled Pink Camo Laptop Sleeve!! on: August 09, 2005 06:42:05 PM
This was my first stab (hehe) at a laptop sleeve made especially for my dani! She loves Marilyn Manson more than me. So for a suitable going to college gift I made a laptop sleeve to put her brand new laptop in. The messenger bag is coming soon. I'm not that great with a sewing machine so please be nice! No, seriously all comments welcome. Oh and I found the stencil with search from the good ole craftster! On to the picture!  Grin

15  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / MY pop tab cell holder!!!! on: July 25, 2005 10:15:49 PM
I saw this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=33593.0 and thought what a great way to dress up my little cell phone! I used the same colors because pink and black ROCK together. The only thing I did differently is the third row I didn't put underneath I don't think it looks funky or anything just my screw up. I continued down the whole thing placing the tabs on top of each other because I wasn't at the puter reading the whole post. I made the chain for the top and ripped the clasp off from an old cheapie cell phone holder I had laying around. Take a look!

16  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My take on the pop tab thing ANKLE BRACELET!! on: July 24, 2005 12:12:59 PM
Grin I finally did it! I made my daughter a pop tab bracelet but she wanted it for her ankle. I spray painted then clear coated them with spray and laced them except she doesn't like the button thing so I put a heavy duty snap on it! I like the way it turned out! Let the comments fly! Good or bad I need the advice!

The Snap Woot!

17  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / More duct tape purses & wallet IMG HEAVY!She-Ra Marliyn Manson! Wallet Tutorial! on: July 15, 2005 01:08:20 PM
Made most of these for friends of mine just wanted to show you what this site can make you do! I feel like an obsessive compulsive with a roll of duct tape!

First my friend michelle has always loved She-Ra! It brought back memories lol!

Next my very own designed duct tape purse..I can't believe it worked out!

The inside....

My wallet I made with hella credit card slots (I need em!). Don't forget the clear ID holder that I have my Sally Beauty card in.

white with silver lining!


I had more but didn't want to bog you all down with mega pics! Oops I think I did that anyways? Tell me what ya all think?!

OK I don't know where to start with tutes but here it goes!

First I made a template for my bills roughly three inches tall with about an inch and a half on each side of a bill make two of those!

Then you line the tops with about a 3/4 inch strip of contrasting color.

Then I made the card slots the width of the duct tape for card holders make sure when you fold the bill holder in half it is not over half the size of the wallet or no id holder for you!!!

I used clear duct brand contact paper folded over to make the id holder and one sheet of matching size duct sheet for the pocket line one side of each and leave room so your id wont be squished.

Line both sides to put them together we will get back to that later.

Make a sheet the width of the card holders if you are not making many and place that under the contrasting strip of color on the top of your bill holder. If not tape your card holders together from behind to make sure your cards don't slip way down in your wallet.

Add your card holders with a strip of 3/4 inch contrasting color.

Fold your bill holder in half then split the top of the contrasting color and pull up to place your card holder in the middle with a strip of duct tape on each side that will finish your id holder.

NO PICTURE OOPS- with 3/4 inch contrasing color seal bottom of your wallet don't forget to split it where the id holder is.

Then for the sides I used the 3/4 inch duct tape to start at the bottom and go up only one side of the side? does that make sense and go up another 1/4 inch to overlap then split it to the top of the wallet.

Finally take the split end and fold over each side of the wallet on the inside and presto you have a liljinkss style duct tape wallet!!!

If you have any questions let me know I will try and clarify any problems you might have.

As for the round sliver purse I just used a bowl and cut off the top and bottom pieces then took one piece I cut off and used that attached to a rectangle to make the lid. The sides are also rectangles and the bottom to match the length of the sides of the circle. Hope that helps....
18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My very OWN stripey duct tape purse! Pic heavy! on: July 05, 2005 12:13:53 PM
This is what I get for making everyone else's purses and not my own. It was July 3 and 11:00 pm and I had just a plain old purse everyone else was rocking my purses and I was feeling jealous! So this is what I came up with half asleep I even attached a snap so I could not lose everything while partying on the 4th! This pic was taken today after a night of good times lol. Not anything fancy but let me know what ya think! Smiley

Sorry a little blurry......

One grey strap one black!

19  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / WONDER WOMAN PURSE!!! on: June 29, 2005 12:15:40 PM
Well here it is! My daughter loves wonder woman but you really cant find anything other than action figures. I used the post of the super man purse and made one with wonder woman. I found pictures of wonder woman on the internet printed them onto picture paper then sealed them with clear contact paper. The rest is just blue duck brand duct tape.

I just love this picture!
