Oh my gosh!  I'm so behind!   Roll Eyes  Everyone's bags look awesome!  alwaysinmyroom - it'd rock my socks to see the tomatoes in the lining Smiley

So, I've had a flood of custom orders, and I'm not going to bore you all with everything I've made lately, but this is my favorite so far - it's all pirate-y looking, and now I'm going to have to make myself a pirate bag with a jolly roger and all.

Criticism, critiques etc are welcome as always!!! Cool

Okay, it's been Christmas two days in a row for me! Smiley  I have had two people already fondle my elephant at work...she's my girl Smiley  Here's the fabu goodies I received.

Ellie the Elephant needs to model...she's my rock star  Cool

THANKS Faren!!! Smiley

And, from Ooak_Diva - the GORGEOUS funky pendant came today...hubby was thoroughly and properly impressed with the artisanship of such jewelry Smiley

The pictures don't do the colors justice, the dark parts are a pretty purply blue and the light parts are a metallic grass green

THANK YOU!!!!!!  I LOVE this swap Smiley

okay - so I skipped a month or so in there, but watch out!  June will be chock full, and I promise I won't post them all here, as I'm mass producing for a fair.  But, I got a great custom order, and while I'm not quite done, it's done enough for pictures, and I have to share.  I haven't ever done a laptop carrier before....

Lacking just a few minor adjustments, here is the Custom Laptop Messenger soon to be sent to his new home in Canada! Smiley  You may have noticed the pins - those are some of the final adjustments to be made, and the flap only looks off center - it is centered nicely Smiley  The front panel and divider are very protective for the computer - both are quilted with high loft batting, and reinforced with a sturdy peice of plastic for rigidity.  ALL seams are triple stitched for strength, and the handles have been triple stitched three times (are you lost yet?) to ensure she will never have to worry about her strap suddenly snapping off with her computer tumbling to the ground.  The rear pockets have two expanded pockets on the sides for accomidation of her cables and adaptor, plus a pen pocket and another accessory pocket.  The front pockets are all flat, accessory pockets, with one pen pocket as well.

Okay - another question for you seasoned, constructivly-critical craftsters !!! Smiley

I'm currently planning to have 10-20 of each of these styles (each in different fabric combos)

I'm thinking of adding 5-10 each of these two styles to add a little more variety (the first is a plain tote, the second is a messenger) - would I be going overboard?  This is my first craft fair, and I'd really like to attract a variety of customers, and I have  feeling if I add these that will help.

Again, I humbly submit myself to your thoughts, witticisms, criticisms, and random other words Smiley

These are EXAMPLES of what you can expect, should you be my partner Smiley

I've just prepped bookoos more of these last night, so you might get one of the above pictured ones, and you might get a completly different one!

When we get assigned partners, I'll contact you (my partners) about preferences Smiley

Okay, I'm finally getting around to using some of the FAB fabrics I've recieved Smiley  The cute bug fabric I received is in a quilt now, and will probably be used in something small and fun with the remainder...

I hope these images work...if they don't, they're in my blog, link at the bottom of my post.

Since some of you are veteran quilters, you may have already guessed - this is my first quilt.  I'm so proud, it actually looks like the picture! (patternwise, but my eye-searing colors are my idea alone...I hate matchy matchy stuff)  I'm beginning the machine quilting soon, but it's all basted together and awaiting quilting, binding, and loving use Smiley

Aren't the buggies ccccuuuuuttteee?   Wink

20  Pouch O Pads in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by meanbean on: April 27, 2006 09:21:45 AM
So, I received my New Moon pads yesterday (YAY!) and immediately pulled out my fabric samples and made a pouch just for them.  Because pads that pamper me deserve to be pampered.

So, my silk and suede pouch does the trick....

FRONT - polka dot suede

BACK - lavendar dupioni silk

INSIDE - sorry, my camera didn't like the inside shot - light green suede and royal blue dupioni silk

I LOVE it   Grin
Plus, it only took about 20 minutes Smiley
