1  Lights... Camera...ACTION!!! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by notner99 on: May 20, 2008 06:58:41 PM
One of my best friends just graduated from college with a film degree. She has been asking for a bag for a while now, so I thought this would be the perfect gift( Filled with random Pirates of the caribbean things of course...) I used the same out side pattern that I made up for myself a few months back( and seem to be stuck on making as I've done 6 already...

 The flap is a black and creme houndstooth print, the body a black quilted cotton,and the inside black cotton. I got lazy, so the strap is Black Webbing. The image is black and white vinyl.

 she loved it, and I've been commissioned to make a bag for her mom. Fun times.
I dont know why the pictures are all strange sizes and upsidedown, they are normal on Photobucket....

2  A few New bags- Picture plump in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by notner99 on: April 13, 2008 11:48:41 AM
Just a few bags I made a couple weeks ago. I have been babysitting for one family for 10 years now, and rather than making them traditional easter baskets I figured I would give them things they could continue using, and no Easter grass !!! the girl is 10 and loves tinkerbell, so I made her this

the boy is 8 and loves Cars, so I made him this one

the drawstring pattern was made up from random tips I found and trial and error tactics from past trials.

I also made myself a bag using Butterick B4822. The bag is totally not something I would normally use, in fact I made it 3 weeks ago and haven't used it yet.... I ws slightly dissappointed in the pattern as the final project doesn't look the same as the picture, but all in all it is a cute bag.

inside, with magnetic snap

and the bow which I added later because the pink alone was too plain, yet too busy. This picture shows the colors more close to the real shades than the others.

3  I stitched a stitch bag!!! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by notner99 on: April 11, 2008 04:14:41 PM
So I love Stitch, but the Disney store rarely has anything Stitch for sale any more. I had the day off from work and school, so I  decided to make a Stitch bag. The patch is " hand/ machine embroidered" like my other bags( I didnt have a pattern, just forced it to zig zag in the pattern I wanted) and the bag pattern is my own. I even made a small zippered pouch to match. I was too lazy to make my own straps, so I used 2inch webbing instead

4  dots and daisy messenger in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by notner99 on: January 20, 2008 09:27:34 PM
I made this last week from home decorator fabric and Pellon 808 interfacing. I made up my own pattern, I'm not sure of the final dimensions, but it holds a ton of stuff and was sized to fit magazines or folders. The daisy was ( "hand") machine stitched on vinyl following the outline of a photograph I had taken over the summer.  I also made another one where it is Shrek and Donkey instead of the polkadots, but my machine is now screwed up so I couldn't finish the patch. Enjoy.

Hey thanks everybody, sorry for the delay in posting a patch closeup, I was having issues with my computer. These are the best I could get, there was always a bad shadow when I was taking close up shots of the patch, the lens got in the way of the flash.

6  Olivia the Pig in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by notner99 on: January 13, 2008 10:35:17 PM
 My brother's girlfriend is a first grade treacher and her favorite books are the Olivia books. I made her this for Christmas, it is almost the same as my John Lennon bag, except I didn't put a pocket inside, and there is no closure, so she can be assured that all her school needs will fit. The patches are all in separate pieces, all made of vinyl. Olivia, is " hand machine stitched" and the top word bubble, has fabric letters I bought melted and sewn in between clear vinyl and sewn onto a piece of white vinyl.

7  John Lennon in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by notner99 on: January 13, 2008 09:47:47 PM
 I made this bag as a Holiday gift for my best friend. I finally got to give it to her this weekend, and so far, it has had rave reviews. I used a pattern for the bag, I am not sure which exactly, I can find out if anyone wants, but it was originally for a diaper bag. The body is made of a heavy black canvas i got as a remnant, the sides are black vinyl, and the lining is an awesome psychadelic cotton print I picked up at joann's. It has a random interior pocket that I didn't especially like once it was done, and closes with a magnetic snap. The patch is "hand machine stitched" meaning I dont have a schnazzy machine that does embroidery, I just force the machine to follow what I draw out.

Comments and Criticisms are greatly appreciated.

8  Avenged Sevenfold Death Bat Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by notner99 on: December 15, 2007 09:23:05 AM
So my friend is a HUGE Avenged Sevenfold fan. she calls them her drug, so what better gift than  something related to them? about a year and a half ago when i had no sewing skills i had bought a pre made tote and painted the band logo on clear vinyl, then my mom sewed it on for me, but that bag fell apart. lately I have been experimenting with making what i would consider patches of different things. this is what I made out of the Avenged Deathbat . the white is vinyl, the black stripe part is courderoy, and the inside is just black cotton. the patch part is " machine hand sewn" what i did was draw the design on the vinyl then just basically zig zag stitched the image in.

it has an inside zipper pocket

I gave it to her when i flew down to arizona to visit her last week. we went to the avenged show and she got it signed by 3 out of 5 band members.

9  Chadam Wallet, picture plump in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by notner99 on: August 02, 2007 01:06:14 PM
So I love the Used, their latest cd is awesome and so is the artwork and character concepts created to go along with it. I now give you Chadam, the wallet... please excuse the not so perfectness of it, this was a trial, as I have never used vinyl for more than a base, never used/ created my own appliques, and never really drafted any type of patterns before ( I  really just winged this one... no real pattern )

 I used a magnetic snap.. its  a bit bulky, but is very sturdy.

a shot of the entire outside and both images.

the inside filled with all my stuff. it has one long pocket for the bills, and 4 for cards including an id pocket.
I didnt add any type of change compartment, but I may for future ones, I just wanted to see if i could figure this out .
sorry for such large images, i did re-size them...
Comments and criticisms are welcome, thank you for looking

10  a few sewpixie organizer cover wallets in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by notner99 on: July 17, 2007 09:18:06 PM
Thank you so much to Sewpixie for her tutorial https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=16097.0

I made two so far, I am completely rubbish at using biding, so after I ruined the first one I took off all the binding and just did topstitching instead.

I don't have an organizer small enough to fit in here, so I'm just using it as a regular wallet.  

The second one is for a friend  of my mother, who is doing a year long internship in Germany and wanted a passport holder... Somehow using the EXACT same pattern this one wound up about half an inch smaller than the first, so I'm not sure if the passport will still fit... I have a feeling I might be remaking this one...Plus, I forgot to put in a magnetic snap instead of the elastic, which my mother had specified. I wouldn't reccomend using two thick fabrics as I did here, it made it much harder to sew( it broke needles) and made it a bit bulkier.

Outside - fabric from Joann's- it is the lighter weight home decorator fabric

It actuallt isn't all that crooked, just the cards are sitting in it  funny,and it is sitting in a ridge to keep it standing.. on this one I added a pen holder. The interior fabric is a home decorator fabric from Walmart, I was shocked to have found such a  perfect match.

the zippered coin purse.
