21  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Orange shoe/lamp on: August 31, 2006 10:13:59 AM
Here's something I'm making for a project at uni, I think it looks hilarious, and wish it wasn't a fire hazard so I could   actually use it...

22  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / royal curtain on: August 22, 2006 07:25:27 AM
I bought two old curtains at a thrift store, the dark pink one is perfect for the outside of purses, and the white and green one is perfect for the inside.

Here's two of the things I've made so far, more purses are in the making.

Huge bag, perfect for a day at the beach!

Inside. The handles are made form parts of the inside-curtain Cheesy

Detail. The ribbon lining is sown by hand, took a long time, but looks good!

And here's one of two toilet cases I made:

Detail. Used ribbon here too, handsown cause it looked bad when I tried to use my sowing machine.


Thanks for reading Cheesy
23  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / childhood shower curtain -Pics and how-to! on: August 21, 2006 02:10:31 PM
Here's something I made out of an old shower curtain. The funky pattern pretty much demanded the shape of the purse:

Here's the first, slightly clumpsy attempt:

After this one, I made two more to give away:

The gray lining might be a bit wrong, but trying to find something blue to match was impossible.


The fabric:

Making the inside:

Zipper details:

Thanks for reading Cheesy

Unless there already is a tutorial for this kind of purse, here's a description.
I've used:
- three types of fabric, one for the pocket, one for the two inside-pieces and one for the two outside-pieces.
- A zipper for the pocket.
- Magnet button.
- Binding or a ribbon to hide the seams (not neccesary if you sow the seams on the inside, but that is a lot more work, I find)

Cut out two insides and two outsides, and a pocket. Sow the zipper to one of the insides, and sow the pocket-piece to the back of it. Attach the button. Put it all together by sowing one inside and one outside together along the edges, then sow  together with the other inside-outside-pair leaving the handles free. Binding where the seems are, and voila! New purse Cheesy
