21  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Another Amy B. Bag and a Zipper Pouch thrown in on: January 20, 2008 09:41:52 PM
Well, not actually her design/pattern, but her fabric anyway.  I like the bold design of this material.  Just a basic tote with a pocket on each of the outer sides and then 4 more pockets inside.

And the pouch

22  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / *EDITED: Better Pics* New to Jewelry-making, but here goes!! on: January 19, 2008 06:49:46 PM
**Edit:  I posted some better pics, as I think I was able to figure my newer camera out a little bit  Smiley**

Hi all!  I usually post on the sewing and purse boards, but thought I'd swallow my fears and show you what I've made...Hope you all like!  Cheesy

This is from a day calendar for beading...the designer is Ava Farrington.  Here's the real thing:

and here's my version:

and my lovely model  Wink

and a set of turquoise-colored pieces:

and the last set, which are my favorite pieces:

Thanks for looking!  Cheesy
23  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Polka Dot Messenger Madness -- Very Pic Heavy!! on: December 24, 2007 11:14:14 AM
Hey all!  Well, the title sort of describes this project -- the fabric is definitely polka dots, the bag is a messenger just without the flap cover (as per the request of the friend who ordered this for her 13 yo daughter), and the madness is all about the fact that she asked for this a month ago for the said daughter's christmas present and I just finished this a few hours ago!  I need to take it to her house (luckily, she lives 2 minutes away  Cheesy), but first wanted to show my friendly craftsters the finished bag. 
Here it is:
one outer side, showing a huge pocket and the tie closure, as requested

the inside, one side--with one huge sort of "divider" pocket

the same side, showing the 3 pockets on that divider

the other side, showing the pencil pocket and another divided pocket

just showing scale, cause the bag's pretty huge!

and last, but not least, my darling daughter hamming it up modeling!

Merry, Merry Christmas to all of you!!  Cheesy
24  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Quilted Tote and a Quilted Wristlet on: November 21, 2007 07:00:49 AM
I love Amy's fabrics...they're my new obsession!

The tote


the wristlet


Sorry about the pic quality--I broke my "good" camera...as in, probably I'll need to get a new one it's so broken  Roll Eyes

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
25  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My Two Sunday Bags...One I Finally Made an Amy Bag! on: November 04, 2007 11:18:47 PM
I wanted to share these before I collapse into bed!  Tongue

I made these both Sunday...pretty much sewing on and off all day and didn't get much else done...oh well!  Cheesy 

Hope you like!

First, the Amy fabric tote:

And the second bag I made is just a Fall colors bags.  I saw these fabrics and just knew they'd work together.  Then I just added some coordinating trims.

Thanks for looking!  Cheesy
26  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Blue and Gray Messenger Bag on: November 02, 2007 09:31:30 PM
A boring title, I know, but not the bag!  Here is what I finished tonight.  I so love making these from upholstery pieces...makes for such a sturdy bag and I really liked this one in particular.


27  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / I Hope You'll "Fall" for My New Quilted Bag on: October 20, 2007 10:27:40 AM
I finished this last night, after working on it on and off for the past few days.  I love the Fall colors during this time of year, so I had to pick some of those from my stash.  One of the fabrics actually has little leaves in it.  Smiley  I used batting between fabric and interfacing layers.  Hope you like!
(Please excuse the "fuzzy" pics...hubby and son have the good digital camera with them whilst away visiting colleges this weekend  Cheesy)

inside, with that leafy fabric!

so fuzzy  Tongue

a really bad action shot!  Tongue

No, the colors don't really look like they do in this shot, but I just added it to show size.

Probably the first pic shows the colors their truest, maybe a little less bright.  Anyway, thanks for looking!  Smiley

28  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My "I really should be cleaning, but I've decided to sew today" bag on: October 13, 2007 11:47:31 AM
I think the title pretty much says it all!

Happy Fall!   Cheesy
29  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Blue Swirly and Beige Floral-y Bags on: October 09, 2007 10:22:30 PM
I couldn't come up with a title that was original or catchy, probably because it's late at night (actually, it's now officially the next day-- Grin), but here are the latest 2 bags I've made.  I am so loving this upholstery to make bags with...good thing I've got tons of the stuff!

Anyways...on to the pics:

the first bag


the second bag

Thanks for looking!  Smiley
30  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Three Fall Bags on: October 01, 2007 10:06:52 PM
These are what I've been working on recently:

first bag, front



button clasp detail

second bag, one side

other side


and last one...this fabric is prettier than the pics show...sort of "glittery"

Thanks for looking!  Wink
