1  [ Woven Duct Tape Purse ] White, Teal, and Neon Green in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by virus_insanity on: June 24, 2008 02:53:57 PM
This is my second woven duct tape purse and I made it slightly smaller than the first one.  It's 8 in. x 6 in. x 3 in.  The front of the purse is strips of woven white, teal, and neon green duct tape.  The outside of the purse is white and the inside is teal.  There are d-rings attached to the sides.  I plan on buying some chain and making a strap with that, and finding a snap to close the purse with.

2  [ Woven Duct Tape Purse ] Neon Purple & Black in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by virus_insanity on: June 23, 2008 09:30:34 AM
I've made many duct tape purses before, but I had never made a woven one so I decided to try it.  The woven piece is just on the front of the purse and is strips of black and purple duct tape.  The rest of the outside is black, and all of the inside is purple.  I haven't made a strap for it yet, but I plan a taping a D-Ring to either side and buying a chain to use as the strap.  There isn't any closure yet, but I want to use either a snap or some velcro on the inside to close it.

The dimensions of the purse are 11 in. x 8 in. x 3 in.

Here's a visual aid for starting round 2.

See where the little star is on the photo?  That's where you put your first 2 dc's.   (Combined with the chain three you made after slip stitching at the end of round 1, that makes a half of a shell.)  Then you chain 2, and put 3 dc's in that same space.  That makes your first whole shell.

then what?

Then you need to do three dc's in the next chain part, chain 2, and then do three more dc's in the same part.  Then you just repeat that all the way around.  Let me know if you need more help! =D

4  finished corset, but it [[doesn't fit]], it's big and "baggy" Help? in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by virus_insanity on: August 07, 2005 07:05:26 PM

I'm a beginning sewer and I just made a corset without boning.  It zips up the front and I used grommet tape for the back.  I was SO happy to finally have finished because I spent HOURS on it, but when I tried it on, I realized that it doesn't fit.  It's big and it puckers in spots.  Is there any way that I can fix this?

The feed dogs are working...It'll move along, but not for long.  And then it gets stuck and I have to pull the needle out with the handwheel (by turning the handwheel backwards)  Then once I finally get it all unstuck and I flip the fabric over, the underneath is just a big mess of knots and jumbles of threads...
