1  home made girls kissing stencil in Stenciling: Completed Projects by somethingquirky on: April 04, 2006 08:07:23 PM
hi everybody
it's my friend's birthday on friday, and he's always wanted to see me and my friend meghan kiss.
on account of us being quite heterosexual, that most likely will never happen.
since he's a good friend i though of the next best thing
a tshirt with his fantasy.
we didnt really kiss, i photoshopped it.

Cheesy enjoy!

2  Tutorial: Little green bag oh i <3 you! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by somethingquirky on: January 20, 2006 11:51:12 PM
hi everyone,
i went through the official craftster list of all the bags/purses tutorials and i got inspired to make my own!
i remade my mom's old skirt into a little green bag

so here goes! i'd love feedback, let me know if its too confusing

step 1- so i started with cutting off the top banding/belt part. since it was straight and pressed already i decided to use it as a heavy duty strap, that goes all the way around the bag(this is what inspired me). after i tore the seams off of the banding to get it off the skirt i re-sewed it to make the strap. double stitch if desired

step 2-  since the banding had a button at one and a buttonhole at the other, i connected them to make a loop. this loop will now guide me in all my measurements of my pieces. made from scratch bags don't need buttons, but just sewed together i guess. trace the loop on your fabric twice, so when you cut them out you have 2 ovals.

then cut off the top of one of the ovals. this determines the size of your flap, so its up to you!

step 3- measure the round part of the oval you have just cut. this will determine the length of the bottom part (is it called a gusset?). when you have this measurement, trace out a straight line on your fabric, as thick as you want the gusset to be (keeping in mind that the strap will go overtop) and then cut it out

step 4- right sides in, (you cant tell with my fabric too much because of the lighting.) sew the gusset (i wish i was right about this word!!) to both parts, this part will shape the outside layer of the bag.

i don't have a picture, but it's supposed to look like a very unfinished bag.

step 5- cut out 2 ovals and a gusset with the same dimensions as your outside fabric , out of lining fabric. sew it just like you did with the outer fabric, but leave a hole at the centre bottom of the lining. you will pull the whole bag out of there eventually, so keep in mind in case you interphased your outer/lining fabric.

step 6- right sides together, put the outer fabric INSIDE the lining. sew all the way around the top edges (around top flap, sides, front of bag). when this is done, pull out your bag through the hole you left before in the lining. stitch again around the outside once you have stiched your hole together. COMIN TOGETHER AINT SHE :d:d Wink

step 7- now attach your strap. sew all the way around.

**step 8- now decorate! .. i covered some buttons to go with the purse.
this was fun!

thanks for looking!!

3  *img heavy* brown satin and funky flowers in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by somethingquirky on: November 17, 2005 03:15:18 PM
hello all,

this purse was VERY frusterating to make.
I drafted the design from scratch and had to remake it because when I was done the first time, the zipper on the inside broke Sad
but it ended up looking better when I was finished for the second time.

here it is

the lining ..I had to fight for this zippered pocket! I think it turned out okay

the back zippered pocket...

here it is hanging by my side

this will be a fruitful friendship  Roll Eyes

4  (pic heavy) BAGSand MORE BAGS in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by somethingquirky on: November 02, 2005 08:22:53 PM
hiii, first time posting in this thread.

these are a few bags i made over the years. you will see some crappy stiching in some of these. warning: i still use them all the time so they have paper and crap in them!! dont hate, lol.

my first ever finished bag. before i ever had a sewing machine idecided to staple it together . dont ask why lol. it lasted me for a few years before i started to cut up my hands every time id reach for something in it, so i resewed it as soon as i got a machine. this is where some of the crappy stitching comes in. i also made a little side pocket for change

and another...

lining is PURSES. i love it. its silk. and a pen exploded in there Sad but didnt stain too much so i still love the bag

excuse the dirty mirror.. heh.. just a pic to show the size

my newest creation, i use it for school. it can hold soo much

heres some pics to show the size

the only problem IS that it can hold so much that i carry all my school  stuff in it.
it leads to bruising.


thanks for loooooooking Cheesy:D:D
