Ok, a tutorial for felt applique is coming!
In the meantime, here's the definitive version of the martini clutch that I will soon add to my online shop...

I added a martini glass pewter charm to the chain-strap.

Here's another pair that I made yesterday with some brown pressed glass beads in the shape of coffee beans.

They're so fun to wear! I tried to shape the silver as if it was the smell of coffee Cheesy

6  Re: My SUSHI BAG! **chow mein version added** in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by sushimifune on: August 05, 2004 07:35:22 AM
I just finished making my chow mein hand bag (yeah, the chinese version of my sushi bag!  Cheesy)

the front

the back

the inside.

 (wow, these pics really suck!!! I will do some better...  Undecided)

I just looked in the internet for a good picture for chow mein and trasferred to my bag and embroidered it. Did the same for the chinese symbol meaning "chow mein" on the back. I found a cool site with many many chinese words. Who knows, maybe next time I will make a Fortune cookie bag or a spring roll bag!!!  Wink
The handles are chopsticks, of course.
Hope you like it. I think I will do more bags and put them on sale.

7  Tutorial: rounder roomy bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by sushimifune on: July 29, 2004 01:01:51 AM
Here's my tutorial for the bag you've seen here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=10071.0


you need two pieces of outer fabric cut following this pattern (full size pattern also available as attachment at the bottom of this post)

it's real sized, but of course you can change it or enlarge it as you like.
Then two pieces of lining fabric, but you don't need to cut the tiny triangles.
Two wooden rings if you like to make the straps like I did. I bought very cheap rings used for the courtains, you know?
More fabric for the straps (depending on the lenght you want them to be) and for the inside pocket.
Oh yes, of course a zipper if you want it inside and the closure you prefer.


you start seving the triangles. I'm sorry I don't know the proper term in english. Anyway, You need them to make the bag roomy  Huh
Just fold the fabric right sides together and line the sides of the triangles. sew. You do it four time (of course!) for each piece of the fabric (2)
this is how it should look like (reverse side)


right sides facing, sew like shown.
When turned on the right side, here's how the bottom of the bag will look like

Do the same with the lining, but leave a little space in the bottom unsewn (5 cm?)
Remember that if you want to add the zipper, you'll have to do it before you sew the lining.

To add the zipper, I used my method
I'll have to update it though, because I found an easyer way to apply the pocket to the back... anyway
or you can use this great, easy method by sewing stars (creator of GORGEOUS bags!)


before you sew the outer fabric and the lining together, think about the closure and the straps you want for your bag. If you fix them to the bag before you sew the lining, they will be perfecty attached to the whole bag and inserted beetween the two fabrics. (is it clear?)
In this case, i wanted a button as a closure so I pin a tiny strap of fabric to the bag.
If you want the straps, you pin tem to the sides. Remember: always "head down" -the opposite way that you want them to ba after you reverse them... Oh my God my english sucks!


right sides facing, put the outer fabric bag inside the lining. Pin and sew all around the upper part of the bag.
Once you have reversed the bag on the right side, making it pass through the hole in the lining that you left unsewn, this is how your bag will look like.


now if you want the straps like mine, insert the rings in the mini-straps, just fold and sew.

7) At this point you can use your creativity: Use whatever you want to connect the rings and be used as straps. You can use a continuous piece of fabric, lined and folded. Or two separate pieces knotted together, like mine.

Right sides facing, I made these straps shaping them at the top and leaving an open side at the bottom

Turned on the right side and arranged the open side this way

Then I passed through the rings and sewed.

Tie a knot and... voil


The next time I will use bigger rings or thinner straps. Yeah I like the wooden rings to show more.
So here it is. Use this pattern as you prefer and let me see the results!
There are million way this pattern can be used and changed! Have fun!

10  Tutorial: hobo-jordy bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by sushimifune on: May 14, 2004 06:47:01 AM
Someone asked for a tutorial of my hobo-jordy bag (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=5188.0)
So here it is!
First step: drawing the pattern.


This is the scheme. I hope it is clear enough.
Fold you paper in two. Then draw!
It measures 15 cm from A to D
20 cm from D to E
24 cm from B to C
2 cm from A to B (to form a perfect square in the upper-left side)
the line from C to E is hand-drawed.

Once you have the base pattern, you cut a strip of paper that measures 4 cm x 60 cm, or as much as you prefer, depending on how long you want the straps to be. Remember that you can always decide to cut them shorter, but they will never grow up longer! Smiley
Join the strap to the rest of the pattern. This way.

Using the pattern, cut two part of outside fabric and two of lining leaving the seam allowance that you prefer.

Right side facing, sew on the sides as shown in the picture.

Always right side facing, turn the sewn part to the center so that you have those two little "empty" corner on the sides. Sew where shown.

Now take those corner and sew them, as shown. It's the old Jordy trick! Smiley

Do the same with the lining, but leave a part unsewn. I prefer leaving the centre-bottom.

Turn the outer fabric part on the right side and the lining on the wrong side.
The outer part goes into the lining. This way the right sides are facing.
Pin (and baste, if you are not as lazy as i am...) and sew following the entire border of the bag and straps.

give a nice shape to the straps.

Now turn everything inside out, letting the bag passing through the hole that you left unsewn in the lining (thanks Jordy!!! Roll Eyes)
The most difficult part is to turn the straps inside out... so be patient!!!

Hand sew the hole once you have the bag on the right side.

Now stitch all around the bag (and straps, of course!)

Et voila! I added two inside pocket. Remember to sew them on the lining before you build the bag! Wink

Tie a knot on the straps. The bag is ready!

You can add a pressure button to close it.
Hope you like it and that the directions are clear.
I'm sorry, my english is not perfect!! Smiley
