1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My New Little Rounded/Pleated/Pretty Bag on: December 30, 2007 12:34:24 PM
Mmkay, so I haven't been posting in a looong time. Silly school  Undecided  But now that it's break, I have crafting time :] So I actually made this one about a month ago, but I just found my camera 'cause i actually cleeeaned my desk. I know there are bags similar to it on here, but this my take. But yeah, here it is.

The Bag:

The Inside:

The Handles:

And look! It's reversible!

So there it is. As always, comments and criticism are more than welcome. Thanks for looking  Smiley

2  New York / New York: NYC and Long Island / Fabric Stores? on: August 16, 2007 11:03:27 AM
Hey everyone! This is my first time ever on the east coast.... erm... anywhere out of California, actually. My mom and I were thinking of stopping up in NYC while we're here, and I was hoping to maybe find some cool new fabrics and stuff. I was wondering if maybe all you craftsters had a few recommendations? I have nooo idea where anything is in the area, so any sort of suggestion would be greatly appreciated.  Smiley

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My first stencil attempt on: August 08, 2007 01:55:43 PM
So I've been looking around at everyone's amazing ability to stencil and screenprint, and I decided that I had to try something or I was gonna drive myself insane. haha So this is my first ever attempt at a stencil, and I'm actually kinda proud of it. The Crave is the name of my youth group, and I've been wanting to incorporate it into something that I make for a while now. And now it is.  Cheesy

Outside of the bag -

Inside -

Inside w/ pockets open... kind of haha

And close-up of the stencil (it's kinda blury >.< )

I loved making the zippered pocket, because it was so easy! I used this amazing tutorial from LauPre for it: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=186910.0

What do you think? As always, any comments or criticism are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Camoflauge Tote :] on: August 01, 2007 06:55:53 PM
I'm on a tote kick. haha I loved my last bag so much that I just had to make another one like it. And I kinda sorta fell in love with this camoflauge fabric. So what better to use?  Wink But anyway, here it is:

Laying flat:

Inside (yes, that is a zipper in the liner. I'm so proud.  Cheesy)

Zipper open:

And my terrible attempt at an action shot  Undecided  :

So what do you guys think? I'm actually considering selling it... If I did, do you guys think it would sell?

Comments and criticism always welcome. :]]

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / I <3 Music Tote on: July 22, 2007 01:42:09 PM
Mmkay, so I've had these two fabrics foreeeever and I'm like... hmm... tote bag! This is the first time I'd worked with pre-made handles, but they just matched so well! haha This is my first time working with an applique, too, and my second with magnetic snaps (which I love now :]] )

Outside - hanging (no, the cord part of the bag. I had to charge my phooone. lol )

Inside with snap

Close-up of heart applique (again, no cord. lol )

Outside - laying flat (with a funny line on the fabric  Undecided )

So what do you think? As always, any comments or criticism are welcome. Thanks!
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Plaid, Polka Dots and .... Purple? (IMG huge) on: July 10, 2007 02:22:13 PM
Okay, okay, so it's not all one purse. But it might be! Some day...

But anyway, I've been falling so behind on my posting. >.< I've made, like, seven new bags... if only I had pictures of them all.  Sad  But I do have pictures of these three! That's good, riiight? lol

I made these three all using the lovely tutorial by tinafish. Thank you, tinafish. :]]

Plaid: I made this one 'cause I had the fabric and I was just dying to make something cute out of the adorable plaid. And I love it.  Cheesy

Polka Dots: Okay, so the polka dots aren't on the outside... but I assure you! They're there! They're just hiding. This is for my friend's birthday tomorrow. She spefically requested lots of red and polka dots. The red might look a little funny.. my camera was being mean  Undecided

Aaaaaand Purple: I loooooved this fabric. From the first second I saw it, I knew I had to have. And then I found this lovely purple bottom weight that matched amazingly, and viola, a cute purse.  Cheesy For some reason, the handles look a little crazy in these pictures... they aren't normally. >.< lol

Anyway, as always, comments and criticism are always welcome. Thanks for looking!

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Diaper Bag - Pocket Help? on: June 25, 2007 11:15:20 PM
I'm making a diaper bag for my cousin's upcoming baby shower, and although I've made bags before, I haven't attempted a diaper bag...

I actually have pretty much everything planned out and I've begun putting it together and stuff.

I just have one question:
What kind of shape would I use create a bottle pocket? I've only worked with elastic a few times, and that was to repair clothing. So I'm not entirely sure of the effects it will have on the fabric. I thought it might be as simple as an upside-down trapezoid-ish shape, but I'm not entirely sure.  Undecided

Can any more experienced Craftsters help me? Any help is greatly appreciated. :] Thanks!

8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Black-and-Pink/ Pretty in Punk decoration ideas? on: April 29, 2007 11:28:47 PM
Okay, so basically I enjoy procrastination.  Undecided

My Sweet Sixteen is coming up preeetttyyy soon, and I'm still running through decoration ideas for it. The party is pretty simple, just me and 10-15 of my friends hanging out at my house wif games and stuff.

My question is, what would be nice, simple decoration ideas that fit the theme, but would be relatively low-cost and not too time consuming? I'm already doing balloons and streamers and that kinda standard stuff, but would that be enough? I'm just aiming for a general pinkish-and-blackish feel.  Smiley

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!!

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Coca-Cola! on: February 17, 2007 11:16:53 AM
Alright, so my friend's birthday party is today, and she told me that she wanted me to make her a tote bag like the one I carry around at school. So, I had her make the decisions on fabric and I put it together. She chose the Coca-Cola print because she's a "Coke-addict" so to speak.  Wink
Anyway, here's what I came up with:


Pocket/ Close-up of fabric/ My hand:

Liner (Which kinda reminds me of a black hole...) :

I swear, it's a little more symmetrical in person.... it was just being mean today.   Roll Eyes

So what do you think? Comments/Criticism always welcome.

Mmkay, so I was browsing Craftster the other day and I needed something to do because I was dying of boredom. >.< I was going through the archive of featured project, and found this tutorial by tinafish: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=35575.0
So, after much rejoicing, I got to work.  Grin

And here's what I came up with:

Outside --

Inside --

And more outisde --

Sorry for all of the yucky link-ness, but I guess I haven't posted enough to have the ability to post the pics.  Cry

Let me know what you think. Comments/ Criticism very welcome, especially considering this was my first attempt at something with a zipper. Thanks!
