1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Finally finished my Messenger bag! on: January 28, 2007 12:52:27 AM
So I finally finished this messenger bag I started waaaaay back in November. It's been sitting around half done for a while but I got motivated to finish it earlier tonight. It's only the second bag I've sewn and parts of it was a major pain, but I'm so proud it's done that I had to share! Yay for one less half done project sitting around.  Cheesy

I made it from the Butterick See & Sew B4583 pattern with some modifications to the inside pockets. It's pretty simple looking on the outside. I was not having much luck hunting down a sturdy fabric that had a fun pattern, so I went with a solid gray for the outside since I planned to pin buttons on it anyway. But for the inside, I found this awsome blue fabric with black swirls that is so fun and colorful. Anyway, here are some photos of my creation!

The pattern called for two pockets but I didn't really like them so much, so I added my own. One for the cell phone, one for pens/crochet hooks, and one bigger "stuff" pocket.
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My Crochet Madness! on: July 27, 2006 11:08:16 PM
So my mom showed me how to crochet when I was 10 but having no patience at that age, I got frustrated and gave up on it a week later. Recently I kind of felt like picking it up again, so I figure it was about time I gave it another shot. I took a class at Joann's and came out of it crocheting like a mad woman. I'm so proud of my first creations I just had to show them off!
My first scarf:

- The result of turning my practice piece into an actual project. Note, the rounded parts on the end were the result of a complete beginners accident on one end that I tried to replicate on the other but just couldn't make it look as good as my accident. It's kind of weird looking but I keep telling myself it's in a good way. Smiley

My Firey Handbag:

- This was the project they gave us at the class if we wanted to try it. It was supposed to be done with a chunky wool yarn but I decided the red/orange/yellow multicolor Red Heart I bought was a much better choice. I now carry this bag with me everywhere!

My Funky Scarves:

Funky Illini:

The girl teaching our class explained how she had to do these for a store promotion the company sent her. They're super easy and come out to be very wild looking!

And it's official I'm now addicted to another craft hobby!  Grin
