31  Make your mistakes work for you! :) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ScissorSister7 on: October 02, 2006 02:26:31 PM
I don't know what is wrong with me but lately I've been jacking up the straps on every single purse I make.  I have two purses in the "I can't deal with that now" pile that need their handles fixed.  Then when I made this purse I cut the strips of fabric for the handles in half.  Angry  So this is what I came up with to fix the strap and make it long enough.  Whatcha think?

32  The prototype that did not work out. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ScissorSister7 on: September 29, 2006 03:57:32 PM
I saw a really cute purse and I thought I could copy it but it didn't work out so well.  The good thing is that I got like 10 yards of this fabric at Goodwill for $3 so I can practice on this stuff without feeling bad.  I just couldn't get the handles sewn on this purse and make it look nice.  I think I have a few ideas for improvement on this one but if anyone has any suggestions for me it would be greatly appreciated.

33  What do you get when you cross a reject pillow case and a thrift store dress? in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ScissorSister7 on: September 21, 2006 04:05:51 PM
You get a darn cute purse I think!  Grin

I found this pillow case in the "As Is" bin at IKEA over the weekend.  The zipper was broken but the fabric was great.  $1.99 -- score!

Then we headed over to the thrift store and I found a dress that was marked down really low.  It had a few stains on it but they were all on the upper bodice part.  I knew I could take the dress apart and use the skirt part.  $3.00 -- double score!

So I spent part of the weekend ripping everything apart and voila! a cute little purse.  I did have to add a little denim that I found in the remnant bin for the straps.  Oh and the straps really do match but they look like they don't in the picture.  I did my first magnetic snap on this one too.  I love how it turned out.

So what do you think?

34  The bag that kicked my butt! (the sha sha dream bag) (pics should work now) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ScissorSister7 on: September 19, 2006 12:02:29 PM
I cut out the pattern incorrectly and after that it was just one big series of mishaps.  So now I'm chalking this one up to experience and moving on.  I don't think the dream bag is the bag I'll be making again (at least for a while).  Here are the pics:

Button is for decorative purposes only.  The purse really closes with velcro.

Comments are welcome.  Please keep the criticism to a minimum as this is still a sore spot for me.  Wink

35  My 2nd purse! (pics & bright colors!) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ScissorSister7 on: September 15, 2006 09:19:50 PM
This is my second purse that I've made and I really like how this one turned out.  I used the Jordy bag tutorial as an example and then changed the measurements just a little.  I'm still working on closures so this one closes with velcro for now.

And the inside (not as neat as I'd hoped but I'm getting there)

Any feedback you have for me would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks! Smiley

36  My first bag/tote! (pics) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ScissorSister7 on: September 14, 2006 01:50:12 PM
I haven't even used my machine in years and when I did use it, I made throw pillows only.  I've never sewn anything other than that.  I followed the tutorial for the Easy Peasy Tote and made this little bag.  I love how it turned out and I'm sure my next bag will look a lot better.
