1691  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Just another POP TAB PURSE...........with TUTORIAL on: April 30, 2006 09:46:13 AM
Hey Everyone,

OK, I have not master the fine art of enlarging my photos, but here goes anyway.  I made this purse from pop taps.  No I have not lined it yet, not sure I want to because you and reverse it.



No it is time to tackle a different pattern....ideas welcome.

Happy Crafting

OK I mainly have pic for part of tutorial, I hope this help some of you out.  The purse was done in single crochets until the flap.

Make sure tab all go the same way ... I learned from mistakes.

This just shows you how to put together ... I tried to show you in stages.

Some more of putting together.

These are on chop sticks to show how again they go together for your pattern.

This shows the larger part and small part of the tabs and direction they go.

This is what I call the backside.

Well folk that is all I have for the moment.  I am not good at tutorial....LOL....I guess it takes practice.
I can only hope it helps.  Good Luck.
1692  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Carrot top thanks for purse idea on: April 29, 2006 06:44:30 PM
I want to take a minute to thank Carrot Top for the idea.  I did not have to exact measurements so I guess and my purse came out larger then hers but was made the same way....I have included her tutorial (Purses are so easy to make!! NOW WITH HOBO BAG TUTORIAL!! ) or (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=82505.0).  I am new at this so I have sent both title and website I hope.

My purse is made out of drapery fabric and left over quilt fabric from my mother.  This is a gift to my sister for mothers day, she like deep purses. Next one will be the size of Carrot Top's for my Daughter for her Mother's Day.

It took me a couple of days to get my measurements right for this purse.  
Thanks everyone for all your ideas and tutorial.....I have made a few.  

Happy Crafting

1693  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: My wife is creeped out by me chrocheting....... on: April 29, 2006 01:03:12 PM
I think it is great.....my husband does counted cross stitch.  I am the one who taught him cause I hate it.  He does wonderful work back as good as front.....next we will put together a quilt with his ccs football helmets.  NOT bad for a retired Marine (he even did it in the Marine Corps and got teased but the use did call on him when they wanted something).  Keep up the good work.

Happy Crafting.

Remember the foam placemats, they work for support like bottom of bags.  I made my grandson a camera bag use this one for sides, top and bottom.  You just have to make pocket for the foam mat to fit in.   Plus you can pick these up in thrift shops and yard sale for little of nothing.......

Happy Crafting

I think your purses are beautiful.......my favorite is the last one in tutorial.  But like  RR and Bamawrly, I am having trouble with the handles.  Your help would be appreciated.   I can not read the yard stick to get correct measurement.
Happy Crafting.

I just wanted to take a minute and thank Carrot Top for tutorial...mine came out larger
.  Not as nice as yours.
