1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Stewie (family guy) Tote! on: March 19, 2006 09:36:33 PM
My friend wanted me to make her a tote bag with Stewie from family guy on it. She picked out the fabric, the pic and the quote.  I won't get to give it to her until tomorrow.. I hope she likes it! I think it came out cute and the butterfly patterned lining looked better than I initially thought it would.

Stewie and the quote are painted on with acrylic paints. And I even managed to include a zippered pocket!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Shirred Pepper Shirt and Irish shirt on: March 16, 2006 06:58:37 PM
So.. while browsing the forum, I saw mckincrispy's shirring tutorial and I wanted to try it... so after a lovely trip to JoAnn Fabrics where it took me forever to find the elastic thread.. and too much time spent winding bobbins and trying to make my machine want to cooperate.. I finally ended up with this shirt.

I was getting tattooed on my shoulders today, and I couldn't find any of my halter tops, so I figured I could just maybe whip one of these out... yeah... Needless to say, after a few hours, I ended up with a shirt, and I wore it today.. and I'm actually quite pleased with it. I even got a compliment from the tattoo guy!  Grin

(please excuse my messy messy room!)
Classic mirror shot.. lol

Closer view of shirring:

I also made an Irish shirt for St. Patty's day, since I wanted something open for my tat... The fabric was flannel, so it was super comfy, but was a bit bulkier. I like it anyways...

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bags for Japanese Swap on: March 06, 2006 12:36:07 PM
Since my partner has recieved, I can post and show off the stuff I made!  Grin

First, I made this geisha tote bag...


I painted the geisha on the fabric using acrylic fabric paints. Unfortunately I forgot to use interfacing, so the bag is kinda floppy.. but it's still a functional tote. I even managed to include a zippered pocket!  Grin

I also made this cute little brocade handbag..


I found the handles at JoAnn Fabrics a long time ago and just never found a use for them. After making this, I totally want one for myself now too! lol
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Belt Purse... thing... with Pics! on: December 18, 2005 09:23:37 AM
So... I got my purse stolen from me the other night while I was at work. Absolutely devastating, I know...
(I've actually gotten it back! Two days after it was taken, whoever took it must have had a conscience because they put it in a fed ex box and I was able to get it back.. with everything but my money and one credit card!)

So I decided I wasn't going to bring a purse with me to work anymore, but I still needed a way to at least bring my ID and some money for lunch. I saw this great belt in this thread => https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=47995.msg439512;topicseen#msg439512
And I wanted to try and make one for myself. I saw the tutorial she made, but I'm not that good at sewing in zippers, so I pieced it together a bit differently. I tried it out the other day and it worked out really well. Plus I got a ton of compliments on it! And two friends want one each, so I've two more to make.  Grin

The belt itself

Shot of the lining ( I didn't really line it.. it's just an extra piece of fabric to make it look like it is. If you actually peek all the way inside, you can see the seams.. but who's going to see it but me?)

Me wearing it

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / First purse! (thankie buglake for the tutorial!) on: November 16, 2005 11:31:06 AM
So.. I've been a lurker here for a little while now.. but this is my first post!

 I saw buglake's tutorial for the Sha-Sha Dream bag.. and I just had to try it!
tutorial=>  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=54595.0

The fabrics I used are too bright for me to use for myself, but I thought they looked cute together.  Grin

And I had a few snags while sewing the top closed, but it doesn't look so bad for a first try. ^_^

I changed the handle to one strap instad of two and I made little ties to tie it closed.

What do you guys think?
I'm already rummaging through my fat quarters to match fabrics for a couple more purses.. lol
