My labels finally arrived! My shop is going to be called La La cos thats one of my nicknames at school!

This clutch uses stiff interfacing and the cutest fabric EVER! some may recognise it from nikkipothead's awesome school bag:
We both bought some Wink

The button is purely decorative, I got it from eBay! how pretty is it?! The lining is a white with blue pinstriped CHEAP fabric.


My awesome new labels!

I made this bag out of black velveteen, then got a whole load of fabrics from my scrapheap and made a corsage, added pearls, sequins, buttons and VOILA!

Here it is!

And the button closure.....


Hope you like!
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / 2 new bags, gorgeous fabrics and plenty of pockets!! on: August 15, 2006 03:46:05 PM
So i made this pattern up myself, because i wanted something practical yet chic!! I have pockets in them both, as well as outside pockets. The glittery one has ribbon detailing and a cute little purse attached to it by chain! I love the glitter denim, my gran got it for me i think its gorgeous!
The purses each took me about 4 hours to make, the handles took me forreeeeeeeeeever! See how theyre really nice and flat? Yeah don't ask. If i made the handles a normal way, it would take about 2-3 hours.
Anyways enough chinwagging, on with the piccies!!

So this is the peach suede one. No interfacing, except in the handles. Yeah again, don't ask.

This is the inside pockets and gorgeous blue silk lining. Pockets are so handy!

This is the denim one. I love this one as well, it has a purse on a little chain hanging from the handles (on the other side of the bag) and ribbon details on the pockets. It also has pockets on the inside.

Outer Pocket with ribbon closure.

Little purse on a chain.

So what do you guys think? I'm really proud of them both, I lurve them!!! So practical, but really cool as well!!

hey guys! i was in a random mood. i made a stripy tote bag using scraps of fabric. then i thought it was boring so i stuck a massive strip of frill around the top. oh well at least it will scare pickpockets of. hehehehehehe.

my friend says it looks like a big frilly sock. Charming! what do you guys think?
