But why are the purses called jordys?

Jordy is the genius that designed and shared the pattern for that style of purse.

Those are great items! Oh I'm an electrical tape buff myself. (that's whats holding my truck together at the moment).

Thank you all so much!

I've been looking for a reason to make all of the neat girly stuff I've seen here since I joined, but since I can't (or, rather, don't) wear it, it seemed silly. Christmas was an excellent excuse and having three sisters made it even better. I still have some more skirts and stuff to make for a friend (a christmas request) when I get back home from my parents' house. I can't wait. Making girls' clothes is so much more fun than making guys' clothes -- there's so much more variety!

I wasn't planning on making the skirt, but when I saw the fabric (JoAnn's) I knew I had to use it for something and I knew a skirt would be a much more beautiful use for it than a bag.

Yeah, and maybe this young man will be one, too.
Unlikely, though at this point in my life I wouldn't rule anything out  Smiley

And I don't think men sewing is weird. What about punk rock? They all had to make their own stuff, and a lot of them were guys. And what about pirates? They had to sew their own sails.
or punk rock pirates!
Seriously though, that's how this all started. Sewing punk patches on jackets and pants. Then it spread to sewing other weird fabrics on pants. I'll post pictures next week when I get back home. I've got a pair of blue cargoes that have a wide strip of circus animal print (like a child's security blanket) running down the side. They never fail to get a comment.

wow. handsome AND crafty.
Thanks.  Embarrassed
(How come the only blushing smiley looks so sad?)

are u straight? Wink
Yes I am straight, though you're not (by far) the first person to think otherwise, especially among people who know me. Notably, by best friend's mom has been suggesting we get married for a few years now. It would probably be the perfect marriage, except that we both like girls.

But why are the purses called jordys? Huh

Here's the tutorial for Jordy's bags

I think that could make it the perfect marriage!

Besides, with your skills, the bridesmaids wouldn't look like hell and maybe you could score one each.

Your stuff is fantastic.

Haha! Now there's a plan. Getting married as a way to pick up chicks.

Holy crap you have some lucky sisters. Would your parents want to adopt a smunky? Please let me know.
Also, you were in Rehoboth!
Well, my youngest sisters will be going away to college soon, it's possible that my parents will be looking for someone to feed the cat and help keep the house tidy. I'll let them know you're interested.

My friend's aunt has a small house right in the middle of Rehoboth. I'm not a big fan of the beach, but my friend's always a ton of fun and his family is hilarious, so I knew the vacation wouldn't be a total bust. For example -- it took us two days of thinking, "man, there sure are a lot of really buff guys in speedos around here, and almost no kids" to realize that we'd followed his aunt's directions wrong, and had been going to one of the gay beaches.

I read (okay, skimmed) about half of this thread  before I realized a guy had made a skirt and two handbags. Awesome job, they look really good!

Also, I go to Rehoboth and Bethany in Delaware, your story cracked me up!  Grin

Look! Round windows!

Rehobeth Beach? No Friggin Way Dude!!!!!! I Love Rehoboth Beach although I was only there once last year and that was like at the end of December. This is friggin cool, I log on here trying to find a tutorial on how to make a duct tape messanger bag and find some one who knows about Delaware.

Kepp up the awsome crafting..............

Finished reading the thread only to be heartbroken, a cute guy, some were in or around Delaware and he's str8. Oh well................
