Crochet T-Shirt-Fabric Bag

IMG_1340What to do when you don’t feel like knitting or sewing… Used no pattern for this design..just started to crochet.

I had bought many years back in Switzerland some of the string yarn… now it was time to use it up.

Bought some more of T-Shirt fabric that I cut up…Hope to writ this pattern up shortly for any one that likes to crochet one bag too.

For the handles I used 2 of the same inexpensive Belts that I had extra holes added by a local shoe repair place.

Then just wove the belt straps in to the bag

Ultimate Pocket Purse

IMG_0974Do You love pockets in Your Purse….I do!

Have a look at all these pockets in this Purse..!

Original pattern is “The Ultimate Sewing bag” and since this bag will not be used for sewing items or  taking along notions to classes.

We decided to eliminate the iron pad.

Ok You know what that tells me ….Modifications are in order!

Though truly if you are going to sewing Retreats the “Ultimate Sewing Bag” idea IS  a wonderful addition FOR ALL THE NOTIONS.

Here for this Ultimate Pocket Purse I modified the one side to make it the same as the other shorter side and did not add the iron bad to bottom…

I never took the class we have running at the store so …I have to say this is not a beginner project and it did give me some challenges …but I did it…Yehhh so happy about it !!!

 

You can see I added a special front panel to this bag.

 

Have printed, yes on fabric sheets a special picture that my friend has created of her dog “Rudy” she wood burned his image on a piece of wood…She called this “Pyrography”

And Voila …all done and hopefully the happy owner will be pleased too…..

Thanks Ave for a wonderful “One Of A Kind” gift you created for my husbands special Birthday!

De La Salle Beach in Sutton

unbelievable how there is sooooo much ice on the beach! This is not to far from us about 30 minutes driving…people where still on the ice doing Ice-Fishing…IMG_3177

Ultimate….Pockets…Knitting Bag

IMG_2845Yehhh I finished this bag ….after 3 days of sewing….I did it!!!

The pattern is at it original way a Sewing Bag…

 

I like it, but since I would never use the ironing pad on it. I decided to alter this up…

followed the pattern (except for iron pad)   ….till I came to outer panels.

I tell You I am glad I have a workhorse fo a sewing machine, Janome MC6500 . I used faux Suede and the interfacing was heavy too. Would go lighter next time in my choice of Interfacing or Stabilizer.

Then I was not sure where I had gone wrong? Somehow I ended up with two the same with outer fabric 1 facing out and second 1 facing in….NOOOOO!!! Why is that I ask? IMG_2847

 

Off to my modifications working a side panel like in the “Sew Together Bag”.  Only to realize that now the bag front and back are falling way to much open.

OK, what next was my question? Lets turn bag inside out and make more pockets…LOL

Perfect !!! FINISHED HUwww…

IMG_2840 - Copy

So I am looking forward to seeing the once worked up at the store…It is the first bag I have put together that has lots of zippers, pockets and folder slots.

I think this will be a great bag to go travel with. Perfect for Passports, Travel documents and yes even my DSL Camera should fit in to my modified bag…

Happy with the end result….yes not perfect with all the exact precise measures….I like it and I managed to sew it up on my own (Embroidery  section for Front pocket is a sample that was going into the garbage!)

Smiles and I get to make another one too….;-)))))

Happy Sewing
