Cosmetic Bag With Frame

bag0

Hello there! Happy Weekend! For those in the West, Happy Halloween!

I love Pinterest, there are just so much beautiful stuff that people pin and share. I found this cosmetic frame bag tutorial through it and I just have to try making it myself.

The author actually using a 20x4cm bag frame that I don’t have, so I figure out the size of the cloths that I need to cut myself base upon the size that she shared.

The frame size that I’m using is 15x6cm, I figure the height of the side should be 3 times of the side of my frame, which is 6cmx3. And I need to add in some allowance for the sewing part. So the size of my cloths is actually 30x20cm with sewing allowance.

Initially I wanted to use the more elaborate designed side as the front, but after finished sewing up the bag and wanted to put t a”handmade’ tag, I find that having a simpler canvas as the front is better for the tag, so I ended up using the simple air-plane design as the front.

Well, now that I have another new bag and satisfied with the sewing and knowing more on the exact steps in making this bag, there could be more coming up.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you all are having fun creating!

Simple sling bag

Hi hi, I’m going to share a sling bag that is requested by my colleague. Which is in the same pattern with the clutch that I’ve made before, except this time it is with a sling that she can put on her shoulder. I love this bag ‘cos it can fit in a small bottle, handphone (size of a Samsung Note III), keys, pack of tissue and maybe some other small stuff like lipstick. I guess it is a go to bag whenever she wanted to get out of the house for a short trip and even for the evening function.

 

I’ve made it with the Party Line again.

Here goes:

The colors look a bit brighter in the photos. The color scheme is more like the last photo, but it all depends on the screen resolution.

 

Well, I still have several under request bags to make, gonna need those umph to carry on making them.. things have been going slow these days..

Your “like” and comments probably would do the tricks!

Thanking you in advance.

Clutch clutch purse purse

Found yet another pretty awesome tutorial through Pinterest.

Pellon call it the clutch purse. I find it is too flat, so I’ve put dart at the bottom so that it looks fatter and got room for stuff.

I’ve put batting through the whole purse and have add-in a zipper pocket inside, plus a cute little birdie badge in front. I hope you like it.

This is also the first batch of bag that I’ve use thicker string, hopefully they are more durable. And I’ve made two in a few days, using fabric that I love and got online.

This time, I’m trying to do what the pro did – listing of the product info.

So, here goes:-

Done another two bags

This one is by request and already taken.

 As for this one, I’ve just done it today with embroidered flowers with thread and ribbon.
Like how it turns out with those flowers, free hand without sketch.

Both are with lining.

Sorry for the blurry photos though, I’ve just taken them just now.
Happy weekend!

Something new and something old

Once this one is out, my colleague grabbed it and proudly brought to her meeting saying that it will be the trend in the office, ha! So happy to hear that.
See that little ribbon with apple figure sticking out? That is from Kaison, it is just so cute that I had to use it in my bag, just for fun. This materials is actually design from Elyza’s protected by Texgard (whatever that is) and stain repellent. I hope it serves what it has claimed. And yes I bought it from a curtain shop. I love shopping in curtain shop now since they have better materials and most imported.

As for this embroider bag, I did it using embroidery thread, fine ribbon and some beads. First time ever to make this. Am planning to make small bags with simple embroidery.
What do you think?
Happy weekend! And for those who are celebrating, Happy Halloween!

Bags, bags and more bags

First I am crazy about scrapbooking, then a bit of card making and now I’m crazy over making bags! All sort and any sort, but of course only those pattern that I love.
I wanted to refine my skill in sewing using machine, by hands and now even am thinking of doing embroidery with my bare hands.

Here are two that I’ve made today:

Yup, just got those materials on Friday and hardly can wait to use them actually. What more there are new books on bag making that came in! So I get to try out new pattern and new ways in sewing up bags. Great!
Here are those that I’ve made before this:

I’ve even made a pouch for my camera, ha! One that I should have made first thing.

I wanted to make more new patterns but for now there are 2 more bags that waiting in line for me to finish up upon request. I’m waiting for my magnetic snap from an Etsy shop, hoping to see them first thing on Monday if they do come through the mail then.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
