3  A wallet from...an old 80's cassette tape??!? Well, almost. I need assistance. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by PlasticPlatypus on: August 17, 2007 05:42:14 PM
Ok, so today I was at a garage sale and there was a box of old cassete tapes. I've always wanted to make something out of the things and today after I bought the box I was sitting in my room figuring what else I could do. Then it hit me.


Now, the thing is, I've disassembled the tape (RIP Paula Abdul's "Spellbound") but now I can't decide how I want it to open and close.

I've come up with a few solutions :

1. A 15 inch zipper to go around the parameter
2. A button/snap of some sort
3. A rubber band.

Any ideas on how I could do #1, or other ideas in genera?

Please and thank you!

4  Owls, Karate, and DDR, oh my! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by PlasticPlatypus on: August 15, 2007 09:55:46 PM
So...I hate carrying purses.... Angry
BUT I have  so much stuff in my pocket nowadays that I have been forced to resort to carrying one.
So I decided that I'd just make a cute enough purse (or 4) to satisfy me. I used my own patterns for all of them, especially the owl purses.

 Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

Sooooo....the first one I wanted to be small, and reflect my interests, hence the "fight like a girl" theme....I was going to use turpentine to get the pattern on, but that didn't work so I had to use a sharpie and felt....*sigh*  I wanted to show some kung fu chicks with the saying "I Fight Like a Girl" on the front Grin I thought it was really cool since I do karate and kobudo! I used a rodeo fabric with muslin lining, zipper in back.

These next two are little owls I call "Bubblegum Owlet" and "Blueberry Owlet." The have a little zipper under the head, which is just a flap. They are made out of this simple gray quilting  fabric, and the accents are felt. The string is just yarn I braided together '^^

And the last one is just because I like to play DDR Grin
Quilting fabric, felt, drawstring cord, and zipper in back. For the white arrows, I just sewed them in.

I made my own patterns and I can give a tutorial if you want.
So what do you all think? Smiley
