21  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Australia in a handbag on: May 11, 2006 09:06:01 AM
I made this out of one of those calender mad out of cloth....it is from 1985.  I purchased 3 of the towel or calanders at a church yard sale for 50 cent.  1-was this one 2-koalas and 3-kangaroo.  I also your fabric in purple (trigger) you can purchase at Hancock or Wal Mart.  Wal Mart is limited in colors.  Oh! this is for my daughter for Mother's Day, she collects koalas.

I am not sure if I got all pic mini tutorial
It is alittle on the large size, it will hold notebook and there are pocket for wallet, cell phone, pens, and keys.  Great for those scout meeting, keeps things together with out alot of bags (LOL).  Sorry not pic of inside it was to dark.

Thanks for peeking everyone....

26  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.
27  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
