11  Mack Daddy Wallet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by yonorris14 on: January 05, 2008 06:37:10 AM
Unfortunately, this is not my design.  I found this online but I can't find the link.  Anyhow, I wanted to make one for myself and figured out on my own how to execute it.  This was my first attempt and I was pretty suprised that I didn't run into any problems on the way.  It took a lot of careful planning and measuring before I could even sew the first stitch but it came out exactly how I saw it.

12  Ohh Yeah! lots-o-pics of my wallet addiction in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by yonorris14 on: January 04, 2008 10:35:46 AM
once i figure out a new way to make wallets, i go crazy.  here's a batch of insanely easy wallets with zippers (added bonus; the zippers were salvaged from bags of stuffing)

i've been getting comments and questions about the fabric.  the dots and the guitar is by michael miller.  i believe the purple is free spirit (not sure of the designer's name).  as for the first one pictured, i have no idea, i've had that fabric for evah!  but plug those names into ebay or just your browser and i'm sure you'll find what you fancy.

thanks for looking!

i love them  Wink

who cares if totes aren't the most original thing ever? they are more useful and MUCH better looking than most of the complicated bags i've seen people make! good for you!! Cheesy

btw, that's ALOT OF STUFF for having just learned how to make bags! you're like a one woman sweat shop! Wink

gee thanks for noticing!  i did work my butt off to make all those bags because i didn't know what to expect.  now i make more complicated bags and being a "one woman sweat shop" is hard now so i don't do festivals anymore.  here's my newest creations:

Here's a couple of ideas if you are still looking....

I made a decorative window hanging by feeding them continuously through my sewing machine and using a tension rod and some cafe clips I hung them in my kitchen window.  Sorry the picture is dark, can't use a flash on a window.

Then I started to make a gift bag.  I'm not finished yet but you get the idea.  I have to attach some shoe lace as handles.  This one was not so easy though.  you really have to make sure you cut them out straight.

The first year i did a festival was the first year i learned to make handbags.  My grandfather helped us put together a tent with lattice and metal bars.  This is us deciding how to put it together for the next day.

This is our booth at the actual festival.  We sold totes (i know, how original) baby dresses and other misc stuff.  There was lattice in the back and metal poles on the sides to hold everything.  We covered a table to help the display reach to the outside of the tent and we used an old christmas tree (without the branches) to display even more bags.  We had fun and were somewhat successful but it was expensive to be there in the first place.

16  Swiss Army and American Red Cross inspired bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by yonorris14 on: August 01, 2006 02:50:30 PM
I just made this and I am finally totally happy with something!  It's so roomy and has all the pockets I need (7 in fact).  The outside is duck cloth and the inside is an old shower curtain I had.  The lining doesn't really match but I had to make due with what I had.  The flaps you see housing the hardware have snaps for closure.






Pretty neat huh?

17  hippy hobos with a twist in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by yonorris14 on: July 29, 2006 10:36:48 AM
YAY!  I made two bags that I've been wanting but had to figure out how I was going to do it.  I didn't use a pattern.  I just cut and sewed as I went.  They turned out okay.  I kinda wish I made the opening at the top a little bigger.  But they turned out pretty I think.

Here's the one I'm going to carry.  I lined it with strawberry and kiwi flannel and the piping is made from the same.  The outside is upholstery corduroy.

This one I had more plans for but I got too impatient.  It was the first one I made.

That's my eye transfered onto the blue fabric.

So how did I do?

18  Baby shower gifts for my super picky friend in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by yonorris14 on: July 21, 2006 08:05:53 PM
I have been planning my friends baby shower for months now and finally I can breath!  We had it yesterday so now I can post all the pictures of the gifts I made her.  She is super picky and so not traditional.

Here are some little felt friends...

...and a felt bag to carry them in....

...felt baby booties that I also packaged myself....

...this is a travel sized tissure holder made of felt.  (Yes, I like felt)

I made these bibs with a transfer pen....

...as well as these hats made from tshirt sleeves.

I also gave her some store bought stuff too.  She loved everything and the baby booties were a hit with everyone.

19  Re: CHALLENGE :5: YOUR OBSESSION! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by yonorris14 on: July 17, 2006 11:55:55 AM
Bag Title:  BJORK BAG
Your Obsession:  Bjork

Let me start by saying that although I am crazy about Bjork, I wouldn't say that I'm obsessed.  I mean, I don't have posters of her on walls and I didn't name my first born after her.  But I do own every CD, have paid top dollar to see her in Chicago and wish to God that I could sing like her. 

I made this bag out of felt and corduroy.  Her face is a heat transfer I drew using a transfer pen and ironed onto antique white felt.  The black around her face is black felt and cut outs were made to show the shine of her hair and then sewn around to keep from getting torn.  My Bjork bag is accompanied by a tape made of felt to look like a tape of her first album titled "Debut".  The words are also heat transfered.

Thanks for looking, enjoy!

20  how the ottoman got it groove back in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by yonorris14 on: July 15, 2006 10:51:25 AM
I found this ottoman at the Habitat for Humanity store for 5 bucks!  It was white vinyl and had brown legs.  So I spray painted the legs black and reupholstered it in $8 a yard fabric (on sale!).  I had some left over fabric with which I made a pillow.  So for about $14 I got a new kick ass ottman and pillow!  Beat that!

Reminds me of Jonathan Adler
