1  Led Zeppelin magazine page wallet in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by roysie on: September 02, 2004 11:46:32 AM
I made a new billfold/wallet with a change holder and id/credit card holder out of Led Zeppelin pictures in a magazine. I covered them with contact paper and stitched it all together with a zig-zag stitch. Comments are appreciated!

First of all, thanks for the praise!! I really appreciate it. Cheesy

Second, pockets:

This is all to be done before you sew your 2 pieces of lining together! I forgot to add my
pocket until after I sewed the lining together and it was a mess to sew it on after. You
learn from experience, I guess!

1. Cut out 2 rectangular shapes of your lining fabric the same size.
2. On the bad side (of course), iron on your fusible interfacing on BOTH pieces of lining.
  (Thats the trick to making them stable and puffy.)
3. Stitch along 3 sides, excluding the bottom of the pocket.
4. Turn the pocket right-side out and use a pencil or something poky to get those
  corners sharp!
5. Iron the pocket as flat as you can, then fold over the bottom and iron that so it looks
  more finished when you stitch it onto your lining.
6. If you want to, stitch along the top to give it a more decorative look.
7. Pin the pocket where you want it on your lining. (Remember the bottom fold!) I put
  mine centered about 1.5 inches from the top.
8. Stitch along the edges twice. Once as close to the edge as possible, and then again about
  1/4 inch from the edge, or whatever you think looks nice. If you do this, youll be hard
  pressed to ever get those pockets off! Theyre very sturdy.
9. Nows the time when you get to decide what kind of sections you want in your pocket,
  if any. Just run a vertical stitch up the pocket where you want to put it. I put the items
  in the pocket I plan on storing in there to get an idea where I need to sew. You can use
  chalk or pins to mark it if you dont trust your eye.

Pardon the crude illustration:

3  Jordy bag out of t-shirt in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by roysie on: May 24, 2004 08:37:53 PM
This is my second Jordy bag. This time I used heavier interfacing (fused to every piece of fabric that went into this purse, practically) and it worked out very well, I believe. I made it out of my boyfriend's Rubber Soul t-shirt that was too small for him, yet too large for me. Now I'm the hippest chick on my block!

Here's the outside:

And here's the inside (with cellphone pocket, lipgloss pocket, and writing utensil pocket!):

Thank goodness for wonderful grandfathers who give digital cameras for birthday presents! Without them, this post would never have taken place.  Cheesy
