1  Japanese Craft Books - Handles? in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by liddy on: November 09, 2007 02:23:01 PM
Hey guys -

I just got some amazing japanese craft books with purse patterns.  A lot of the purses in the books use these skinny, leathery looking handles that look so lovely - I just don't know where to get anything like them...

The last one has the kind i want the most...I had a hard time finding good pictures, but hopefully someone will know what I'm talking about!

Where can one get skinny, pre-made leather-ish handles!? 
Thanks in advance,

Just finished this purse!

What do you think? Shape inspired by a japansese craft book. I'm obsessed with japanesse craft books. You should get some.

Constructive criticism would be wonderful Smiley

Hey craftsters!

Here's a couple dresses I made:

#1: Built By Wendy...

closeup of fabrics

#2: Built by Liddy...First try at shirring! (aka my new love)

shirring is SO fun

not the greatest, but the fabric was cheap and i learned how to do a new thing...so i'm excited even if i don't wear it everyday.

thanks for looking, comments are nice  Cool

6  Ugly? in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by liddy on: March 29, 2007 11:01:14 PM
Hey peeps,
I made this bag a little while back.  I think it's kind of ugly, but I'm not entirely sure just how ugly.  What do you think?

Be honest! I really don't care if you say it's poo.

8  Granny's No Square in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by liddy on: March 01, 2007 08:27:17 PM
Here's mine!  
I used the yarn suggested, but in different colors.
It's a bit lumpy, and i think its way smaller than it seems in the book, but i still like it!

Me (so you can get an idea of the size):

Thanks for looking! I heart comments.

9  Bees and Flowers in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by liddy on: December 29, 2006 07:29:49 PM
Hi all,

I made this purse last night.  I don't know if i like it... It may be a bit too cute for me.  I think it looks like it belongs to a four year old.  But.. sometimes thats ok... 

Here it is:

The button is actually one of my grandmas old clip on earrings

bees on the inside + a little pocket

Whaddya think?

10  I made lots of amigurimis for christmas: finally finished! (Lots of pics) in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by liddy on: December 23, 2006 10:35:56 AM
Hey all,

So I taught myself how to crochet in November with hopes that I would be able to learn to make animals by December in time for christmas gifts.  I did, so here they are:

Group shot!

Octopus, thanks to PepperKitty for this wonderful pattern (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=114316.0)

Totoro, thanks to Angry Angel, pattern here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=122694.0

Lion, one of Roxycrafts patterns (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=98247)

Giraffe, Tigerlilly pattern

Elephant, from a japanese pattern book

Buggy! My personal favorite...looks just like my boyfriends parents' dog, who always sticks her tongue out.  I'm pretty proud of this one. (modified pattern from japanese pattern book)

Thanks for looking! Please tell me what you think.  Kiss
