Last Christmas I made my mom a tote bag and now for mother’s day I made her a matching coupon wallet. The wallet was not that easy to make!

I finally got my hands on this fabric (even though it’s only half a yard..) and made this gift for a friend. I plan to make more and different kinds of makeup/travel bags! (Just need to find more of this fabric XD)

Batman tote bag

I had to take a gym class and a needed a tote bag to carry a change of clothes, water bottle, and my essentials (phone, wallet, keys). Instead of buying one, I took an old Batman hoodie I had and made it into a tote bag.

I found this awesome homespun yellow plaid fabric at Joann Fabrics for the inside lining that matched perfectly. I took apart the hoodie with a seam ripper and drew my pattern right onto it. Since sweatshirt fabric stretches, I attached a stiff interfacing to it. I used left over pieces of the hoodie to make pockets on the lining and added a welt pocket.

handbook for the recently deceased

Oct 14, 2012 at 6:03 pm (accessories, costume, props) (, , , , , )

So I’m going to be female Betelgeuse for Halloween and wanted to make a prop/purse so what better than the Handbook for the Recently Deceased.

I found a cardboard book box at Joann Fabrics. I found images, touched them up and made them to fit the size of the book. I printed them on fabric printer paper, ironed heat bond onto the fabric, then ironed it onto the book.

It looks pretty sweet. I made it look like an old book with the iron by heating certain spots longer. Added purse handles and closure. I’m not sure if I want to leave the inside as is or put some padding or something in there..
