1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / green seersucker summer bag on: July 29, 2006 08:38:30 PM
I made this for a friend's birthday - and being a procrastinator, still haven't gotten around to giving it to her yet...it's been over four months now  Roll Eyes

Green with darker green grosgrain ribbon and pink lining with interfacing between the two so the bag won't be "droopy".

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Quick & Easy No Sew Gold Satin Clutch with Black beaded trim on: May 11, 2006 08:34:47 PM
My last minute project  Cheesy

Prom is tomorrow night. I needed a purse to match my dress so, with some cardboard, scraps of gold satin, black grosgrain ribbon, black beaded trim, and a hot glue gun, I put together this -



It's a bit fragile since nothing is sewed together (no clasp either, tied with ribbon) but I only need it to last a couple of hours so it'll have to do. Hmmm, looks a bit like a chocolate box upon closer inspection. Godiva?
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 310 wrappers, One wallet on: January 10, 2006 02:19:38 PM
I had a ridiculousy looooong, and very useless, Starburst chain so I decided to cut it into sections and make a wallet.

Next time, if there is a next time, I would make a pattern with the links.

^^ Monopoly money! My real money won't fit inside once the wallet is closed because for some reason the felt material shrinks. How mysterious.

-Starburst wrappers folded into links and connected into chains
-double sided tape
-regular clear tape (to put protect wallet, paper wears easily)

I might add a buckle with my remaining chain but it's kinda bulky as it is already.

5  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Miu Miu mirrored headband on: September 04, 2005 05:32:18 PM
I absolutely loved this Miu Miu headband from Spring 05.

My version - made with cut up AOL cds stuck onto regular fabric headbands with bathroom tile glue :

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Skirts, shorts, and silver dot clutch on: January 29, 2005 07:19:41 PM
Valentine's Day pajama shorts? I don't know...I just cut random pieces of felt and sewed them on. The shorts themselves are made from a too-large t-shirt.


A-line floral skirt...it didn't turn out too well. Waist to too big and the skirt "bunches" (excuse my terminology) when the wearer sits down.


The silver dot material was a flimsy see-through chiffon-ish type fabric so I put white fabric (an old tee) underneath. It's not structured enough to be a clutch. Perhaps a makeup bag...


My favorite, a circle skirt. The band could be folded down to shorten the skirt (but then it would look like a poufy skirt).

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Revamp coat myself or get tailored? on: June 13, 2004 02:12:33 PM
My mother bought me a wool coat a year ago and I never wore it because it had a huge and quite hideous faux fur collar. Well, today, I took some sharp scissors and removed the fur but it left the seams and lining opened and hanging out. Should I attempt to hand-sew it back together or is this a job for tailors? If you've ever done anything to your coats or clothes of such heavy fabric, I'd appreciate to hear how you did it.
