51  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Help on Hobo bag? on: September 16, 2005 08:01:43 PM
I posted this question in tinafish's tutorial post (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=35575.0), but thought it should go here instead.  Anybody that has made her tutorial, can you help?

First, can you do this purse without the extra strips around the zipper, as in sew the zipper directly to the exterior and lining? (similiar to this:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=22875.0)

If the answer to the above is no, that could be the root of my problem. 

So far, I have the zipper sewn to all four pieces (2 exterior, 2 lining).  I'm at the point where I sew the exterior pieces together and sew the lining pieces together, but I can't figure out how to do it with the little "tips" left at the top of each piece.  Was I supposed to sew the zipper up around the curve (instead of just on the straight part)?

Anybody out there to help?

Thanks to this awesome tutorial...


...I now have an inside zipper pocket!  I've always been too scared to try this before and instructions that came with patterns were impossible to understand.  But this tutorial is awesome!  I understood it the first time I read it and put in my first one without any problems.  I almost ran into a problem when I put my rectangle too close to the top edge - this resulted in a very small seam.  Any closer and I would have been SOL.  And next time I will use a zipper color the same as my lining.  I thought the material on the inside of the pocket would show a lot more, so I matched my zipper to that.  Oh well.  I'm very happy with it!

I made this bag for my great aunt.  It's kinda summery, but it's what she wanted and is her style...

Gah!  You guys were so right!  I have officially become addicted to Craftster.  The last three nights in a row I have been up late on here (instead of sleeping)!.  

Here are some bridesmaid clutches I made a couple of years ago.  The red matched their dresses, then I made each one reversible so they could use it again.  (I wish I had my smaller labels at this time, the big ones are kinda overwhelming.)

(I think you guys call this a "jordy", this would be a mini version.)

I was doing a google search for a pattern for a hobo bag - I had a request for one.  And I ended up on here, looking at tinafish's tutorial.  I just have to say that you guys are crazy fun!  I have never seen so much crafting going on!  I have been looking at all of your pictures for the last 3 hours.  I was supposed to go to bed early tonight.   Roll Eyes  I will be doing the hobo bag shortly (and will post pics).

In the meantime, I thought I would share my usual fare...a diaperbag and a purse.  Smiley  The diaperbag includes two outside pockets (great for bottles, keys, sunglasses, etc) and four inside elasticized pockets, (two of which are for diapers and two for bottles, medications, etc).  All the straps are adjustable and removeable.  You can carry it as a shoulder (messenger) bag or a backpack.  It also includes a matching changing pad, easily accessible in the front velcroed pocket.    The opening has a zipper, the front flap veocroes as well. 

The purse has a magnetic snap closure.  I have also used a ribbon or a button when making it reversible.  Enjoy!
