1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Rock and Roll iPod Case on: March 20, 2008 02:21:34 PM
My neice asked me to make her boyfriend a case for his new iPod. I love this fabric, perfect for a guy. All the pieces are interfaced and I put fusible fleece in between the 2 layers. I serged around the outside with wooly nylon thread. It's roughly the same size as a standard wallet, maybe a tad larger.

More details are in my blog
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Sunday Afternoon Boredom Buster on: June 11, 2007 04:50:01 PM
I needed a project to keep myself busy yesterday while waiting for the Soprano's finale. This did the job!
It's an OLD Adam Ant record.

With the drawstrings pulled up. The stripes actually run diagonal on the fabric.

Bottom view.

Inside. It's actually quite roomy! The drawstrings don't show in the pic, but they are pretty basic. I was thinking about putting beads on the ends of the cords.

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Finally. A toiletry bag that will hold all (some) my stuff! on: May 18, 2007 06:35:38 PM
I went out of town last weekend and finally got tired of small ugly make-up bags that don't hold all of my products.

I lined with a layer of basic cotton and vinyl. I ended up attatching the lining by hand. Yuck! Vinyl is really hard to get a hand needle through. I think I have a hole in my middle finger from pushing the needle through.
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / CBGB t-shirt to tote bag recon on: April 03, 2007 04:14:23 PM
 Recently I bought a t-shirt re-con book called "Tease" for my daughter, but I haven't been able to turn it loose. I've had in my head for some time trying to make the purse from the book, but I couldn't find big round handles that would look good with my favorite t-shirt. I came across this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=158779.msg1592883#msg1592883 and thought fabric handles were a stroke of genius, so I borrowed the idea.

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / My best friend is passing on, please help! on: March 31, 2007 06:56:31 AM
My 12 year old Golden Retriever has lots of health issues that she isn't able to overcome. The last straw has been her hip giving out earlier this week. My vet is giving us this weekend to say goodbye. My husband doesn't want to save her ashes or anything like that. Does anyone have any ideas to commemorate her with dignity?
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Retro Flower Print Purse on: March 20, 2007 12:49:21 PM
I found this great fabric at the local quilt shop and couldn't wait to make something with it. I used Butterick pattern 4409, but made several alterations to it (made it bigger). I also made a cell phone holder in a coordinating fabric that I used as bias trim on the purse.

This picture looks like the bias is all twisted and ugly, but I think it's just the way the purse is sitting.

Close up of the strap.

Inside are 2 pockets, but they are hard to see.

Thanks for looking and I love to hear feedback.

 I've also made an ipod holder to match!

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Skull ipod holder on: March 13, 2007 07:20:57 PM
My niece had a naked ipod and being the caring aunt that I am, I created this case for her. This is roughly attempt number 5, I think maybe the fabric is printed off-grain. No matter what I did, the little skull guys never lined up. Good thing I bought plenty of fabric to play with. I also made a smaller case for for the other niece's nano.

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My Grandfather's Ties on: July 21, 2006 08:13:04 PM
I was given my grandfather's ties when he passed on. My daughter promptly took them and made a great messenger bag from a tutorial on this site. I decided I didn't need anything so big and this is a perfect size to carry every day. They are just zig-zagged together and with a casing on the top to slip the purse handles in. My daughter also made a really cute skirt with the leftovers that I'm sure she will be posting on here soon.
