41  renaissance dresses in Costumes: Completed Projects by rufous03 on: May 31, 2007 11:49:36 AM
i made the blue dress several years ago for a school presentation on medieval/renaissance clothing and food.  i did the green one a couple months ago, just for fun.  i used simplicity 0657 (which now i think is 3812) for both dresses, modifying the neckline in the blue one, and using the sleeve pattern from simplicity 5925 for the green one.

42  jeans bag with tutorial in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by rufous03 on: May 30, 2007 09:27:42 PM

My sister started making these jeans bags several years ago, and after she made me one, I used it to figure out how to make another one, with a few modifications.  Then I made this one for a friend about a year ago, and took pictures so I could do a tutorial.  

Cut out the top part of the jeans, about the size you want your bag.

Sew the bottom edge, right sides together, and lay out flat.

Cut out the lining and hem both short edges, making sure that its a little longer than the jeans piece.

If you want the bag to have inside pockets, cut out extra pieces of material and sew them as pockets onto the lining.

Pin lining to jeans piece, wrong sides together.  Since the lining is a little longer, some of it should peek over the top of the jeans.

Cut out and hem pieces of denim and lining material your desired width and length for the strap, with the lining a little wider than the denim, so it also peeks out.  Sew the lining to the denim, wrong sides together.  My strap is about 1 in. wide, and long enough so that the bottom of the bag is just above my knee when I wear it on one shoulder.

Sew each end of the strap to its corresponding edge of the bag.  Its a little tricky getting the bottom part right, but the sides are easy.  Just tuck the raw edges of the bag about a cm. behind the strap and sew (unless you want it to be completely finished, with no raw edges on the inside, in which case youd have to hem the edges first).

All done!  Smiley

i made this from ideas i got off of a wrap skirt pattern i found online, and a skirt i already had.  i think it would look better in a different fabric, but this is what i had at the time.
