I was recently in a car wreck (nothing fatal, only I was hurt and thats just a bruise on my leg), but the car was totaled. So, loyal crafter that I am, I decided to steal the license plates off the car instead of turning them in to be recycled. At Fuego and Fireworks I've seen license plate purses and I've been dying to have one forever but for some odd reason the pre made purses are near eighty dollars and license plates from antique stores go for around twenty. I'm severly stingy so neither of these amounts were in my price range. I havent the faintest idea how I'm going to go about making my purse though, all I really know if I need to clean the plates off as they're covered in dead bugs and dirt. I want to make something like this   http://chicagoist.com/2008/04/24/license_to_recy.php so if anyone has any advice I'd be very very happy.

Also I dont have any hubcaps or anything that I could put on the sides of the purse as in this tutorial: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=259591.0 I didnt think to steal them off of the totaled car. I saw one while walking down the street today but I couldnt think of any way to cut it and I only had one (plus I think I may be murdered by the caps original owner if they somehow found out I took it)

I know this isn't exactly like the link you provided but this link is what popped in to my mind after reading your post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=259591.0

I've lost the bookmark for the wallet pattern I wanted to buy. (Stupid computer!  Angry ) I've googled myself silly and I'm not finding it, so I thought I'd consult with the craftster hive mind.

It was a zipper wallet, and the zipper went around three sides. (I remember several folks on here making and, and mentioning that the zipper could be tricky to get in right.) I *thought* Eli was in the name somewhere, but Google isn't finding it, so that may be just me. It was a pdf pattern, and was about $10. What I liked about this one was that it was built the way I use my wallet. I usually leave it folded open in my bag, making all the pockets upside down, but this one was built so that when it sat on the 'hinge' side, all the pockets were right side up.

Help? It's driving me *nuts*, and I finally got the perfect fabric for it today!

I got this brainstorm last night.  I want to make my daughter a little wallet/picture holder thing to take in her backpack when she starts kindergarten in a few weeks.  I want it shaped like my hand (ala "The Kissing Hand"), but smaller, with small clear vinyl "windows" in the palm, to put pictures of my husband, my son and myself.  Just a little something she can keep in her backpack and take out when she feels lonely.  Any ideas of what type of fabric I should use?  Cotton?  I would like the pages to be somewhat stiff and sturdy and I was planning on just binding it with a small binder/key ring or something like that.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I did something similar for my son last year when he started school. 

I took his hand and drew around it onto cardboard. Then I added a 1/4 inch seam around it and cut it out.

I fused medium weight interfacing onto some quilt cotton I had sitting here and traced the hand onto the interfaced side of the material and cut them out. (I did 12 hands all together as I did 6 people) I cut out some clear plastic sheeting I had into 2x3 inch pieces and sewed them onto one side of the 'hand' for the pictures.  I then sewed the 2 sides of the hands together close to the edge. 

sorry clear as mud I know, but I can't write tutorial type things for the life of me. I can show you, but that's it.  Huh hope it helps some....

Is this it?http://scrap-bags.blogspot.com/2008/10/new-pattern-easy-zip-wallet.html It's sold on a few different sites. I see the slot are the wrong way but when I did a search here I found a post where someone used the pattern and just switched the opening of the card slots to the top.

Hi all,
While searching for a new schoolbag online, I came across this absolutely adorable Marc by Marc Jacobs cross-body bag http://www.marcjacobs.com/#/en-us/marcbymarcjacobs/women/fallwinter09/bags?lookId=38 which I FELL IN LOVE WITH like you would not believe. However, being a student, and being one that rarely has more than 20 on her at any one time, I figured that I couldn't afford it in ANY WAY at all.... Cry   unless I made one like it! What I'm a bit stuck on is what kind of pattern to use, how to draft my own pattern if needs be and those embellishments, like the zippers and birdy clasps. Also, is there a place where I can read about sewing with leather?

Many MANY thanks in advance

I ran across a pattern for this type of pouch a long time ago and can't remember where I found it, does anyone by chance know where I could find one?
