1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Now I can walk! on: July 06, 2009 05:56:39 PM
When I go for my walks, I always end up carrying my cell phone - what a pain.  I remembered that a few years ago I ordered a cell phone bag pattern from quiltsmart.  The pattern is right on the interfacing. This went together so quick.  I put an extra long strap on it so I can wear it across the body.  I hope you like it!


There is a pocket for my cell phone and a pocket that holds my medical id card, or you could put a driver license in there.

Comments good or bad are much appreciated.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Carson's Diaper Bag on: November 02, 2008 05:25:22 AM
I used Craftapple's diaper bag pattern and made this for my soon to be here grandson.  I wanted to use a fabric that wasn't too babyish, so I used marbles and jacks from the Toybox Fabric Collection by Johnnie Kawan.

I would appreciate any comments - good or bad.  Thanks!

Front View

The outside pocket

The larger inside pocket (and a covered zip lock bag I included)

The divided inside pocket that holds bottles and the cell phone packet

The main flap closes with a magnetic snap and the cell phone pocket has Velcro on the flap.  It really holds a lot.  I filled it with bottles, pacifiers, baby wipes, lotion, ect.... and there was still room.

Hope you like it!
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Quilted Carry All on: September 26, 2008 07:32:56 PM
I haven't posted in awhile since my bags generally do not appeal to most here, but I'm really proud of this one and I hope you like it.

I used this pattern http://henriettashandbags.com/quilted_carryalls_pattern.html to make a bag to carry on the plane (on my way to Jamaica!!)

If I make another one, i would change a few things, but I am pleased with how it turned out.  I might make the smaller one and carry as a purse.  There are 8 pockets and 3 of them are divided.   

This side pocket on the inside is divided in thirds

This shows one of the end pockets and the coin purse.  It's attached with a tiny d ring and swivel hook. 

This is one on the outside end pockets.

Thank you to the crafter that posted the link to this pattern.  I used fusible fleece on the outside fabric.  The lining is just simple black ripstop nylon.  I added a pocket to one side to keep my water mix-ins and splenda.  I hope you like it.  Comments, good or bad, are appreciated.

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / I know where my thread is on: August 10, 2008 08:57:53 AM
I got this idea from a post here, but I'm sorry I can't find it right now to give credit.

I don't have as much thread as others, but at least it's all in 1 place now.  If my supply grows, I can always reconfigure and add more screws.  I found more thread after I took these photos, it was stuffed everywhere.  No wonder I kept buying the same colors!

Thanks for looking

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Camo DVD Player Bag on: June 15, 2008 04:31:31 PM
I made this dvd player bag for my grandson to take on vacation.  He picked the camo for the outside and the lining is US Marine Corp logos.  I put fusible fleece on the outside fabric and the lining.  It holds the dvd player and 4 dvds, has pockets for the car adapter, ac adapter & battery.  I hope you like it and leave a comment (good or bad).

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Brody's Book Bag on: June 14, 2008 04:33:33 PM
A simple drawstring book bag I made for my 2 year old grandson.  It's smaller than most bags like this since he is only 2 and I didn't want him tripping over it.  I'm didn't want the strings long, but I made them too short - so back to the fabric store for more cording to redo it.    But otherwise, I'm really pleased with how it came out. 

I used this for a guide, but changed the size, added a lining, changed the casing .... http://sewing.about.com/od/freeprojects/ss/stringbackpack.htm

Comments or constructive criticism is appreciated.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Bright Beautiful Mini Charmer Tote on: June 08, 2008 03:07:25 PM
This is the mini charmer tote from quilts illustrated.  I used alien invasion charm pack from moda.  It's a little shorter than it's supposed to be because I didn't follow the directions (was I supposed to read those!)  Will have to get a button for the front pocket, but I still love it.  Hope you like it too.



Inside Pocket:

It looks a little crooked laying down, but it's actually straight (that must have been an accident!)

Thanks for looking.  Comments encouraged
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Fabulous Artsy-Crafty Tote on: May 26, 2008 02:12:48 PM
I need a present for a group I belong to, so I used this pattern http://artsycraftybabe.typepad.com/tutorials/pleated_tote_pattern.pdf to make this bag:

It just has a simple lining with the same pocket as the pattern.  Lining fits better than it looks, I tried to get a photo of the pocket.

I made this cosmetic bag to go with it using this tute:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=176509.0

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pencil Bag on: March 23, 2008 05:13:36 PM
I have a dozen or more pens and markers in the bottom of my purse at any one time.  So I used queenofdiy's tute https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=176509.0 to make a pencil/pen bag.  Comments or critiques are appreciated.
