It’s like the tree has given us a gift of purse! But really I just forgot to take a picture of my finished project as usual so I tossed it up there on a whim. I probably should have at least picked a limb low enough to get the details on the bag!

I made this for my SIL. She had seen the one I made for myself ages ago and asked for one. She provided the pants, yes, pants, I did the rest.

This is a purse made from a pair of cords. She provided a black pair and I dug through my stash and found a fun butterfly patterned piece big enough for the lining. I lined the inside of the handles with the same material and decided at the last minute to make a belt for it as well. The waist size of the pants determines the size of the bag so this wasn’t a large one, about a 6 maybe. I didn’t put any interior pockets but could have as there ended up being more room than I anticipated. It is meant to be a forearm bag only because of the short handles.

I handed it off to many thank you’s, great job’s and wow you should make these for money! but honestly I prefer blankets.

And now I need to get back to the blanket I have been procrastinating over because as usual I am running short on time!

I made this awesome purse for someone at work. I loved this bag and almost almost regret selling it because I loved it so much.

She didn’t like my original design colours (grey and something) and then started asking for red/black or vibrant colours and it needed this and needed that and I was like okay nevermind I am so not making you a purse anymore……I don’t like people infringing on my creative process.

 

So after much thought and sifting through my fabric stash I found this red and black awesomeness and received some free stash from M that I used for the liner. It was a nice heavy fabric that gave the bag a nice weight and made it “more winter/cold weather friendly”. I also used some of the wool from my old winter coat for the bottom, sides and button clasp as well as the button, it came from the coat also.

You like the little bird right? I use them on all the projects I am really proud of they also came from M’s stash way back in the day

The end result was simply fantastic. One pocket on the inside running the length of the bag, a pocket on either end all with elastic tops to minimize things from falling out. Button closure. Two medium length straps perfect for keeping the bag under arm or to hang at a reasonable height from your elbow. Seriously I loved this creation.

I made this cute little tote bag “on the fly”. I didn’t have a pattern but I had just made myself an Osoberry bag so I had a premise to follow. I believe I wrote down all the lengths of my fabric cuts somewhere but do you think I could find them now that I’ve finally gotten around to posting this? No. I’m sure they will surface as soon as I press the publish button.

I used the same main fabric on the inside and outside. So it essentially looks the same inside and out which makes it tote-ally reversible! Not that it wouldn’t be reversible with differing fabrics I just really like these stripes!

Also, my main fabric used to be a pillowcase! Which was the perfect amount of fabric for this experiment!
