I guess this purse is more conceptual than anything >w< It appears to be a typical purse with a flap, but in this case the flap is the top of the bag, which folds over to create the flap. The folding point is made from two grommets that attach on the side where the strap is attached. Then there’s an extra pocket on the front for good measure that’s easy to access. The front skull appliqué is of course completely optional XD but I just had to add it due to my own quirky tastes.
Once again with this purse I was able to put another long-held scrap fabric out to pasture :B Like with most of my plaid scraps, I had this one lying around after I made a pair of pants with it. Also like a lot of other plaid fabrics, I kept making little projects here and there with the scraps until finally this last one put the remainder out of its misery! Woo! Destashing!
At the moment I’m preparing to attend an anime convention called Metrocon in July, for the next few weeks I’ll be working on making some products to sell there. Up until then I’ll have those new products on my Etsy store in case anyone in the net-o-sphere is interested :3 First is a teal version of my Punk Bunny Hat, which got everyone’s attention on … Continue reading Etsy Store Update!
This project was bound to come up eventually ^-^ This purse is a tribute to my all-time favorite Sanrio character, Bad Badtz Maru, a mischievous little penguin that always has a angry look on his face. His designs are usually covered with an XO motif, as in Japanese that actually means badtz maru, and is a way of saying wrong or right, like how we … Continue reading Freebie Friday: The Badtz Maru Purse
This bag is a total throwback to my high school days 😀 I can totally see myself using a bag like this when I was in high school, where I absolutely loved plaid (still do, I just try to be more subtle about it) and anything remotely resembling something punk. The fabric is actually a leftover from some plaid pants I made back in the … Continue reading Freebie Friday: The Old School Plaid Bag
Here’s a really flirty, feminine bag for you pink lovers out there 😀 These aren’t the usual sorts of bags I design, but I thought I’d try something that looked a little fancier and less utilitarian than what I usually make. The fabric was some leftover plaid from a pair of pants I made a long long time ago. It has a delightfully preppy look … Continue reading Freebie Friday: The Pretty in Plaid Purse
Here’s #2! It’s a little bit harder than the first project, but it’s hard to pass up such a sophisticated way to hold your iPad 😀 This fabric was a leftover rayon suiting from some pants that I made. I’m kind of a plaid pants freak ^w^ The zipper was leftover from a bag project and the inner seams are bound with some bias tape … Continue reading Freebie Friday: The Zippered iPad Case
