I finally got around to making a bag for my discs. (Incidentally you should try disc golfing! The courses are free and a beginner only needs two, $7 discs!)
I needed the bag to be sturdy so I used canvas as the base fabric. But I knew that would be uber boring so I picked out a scrap of fabric from an old dress that matched my pink, green, white and purple discs. I went a little crazy with the ruffles….
I blame this frilly design on just seeing a Flamenco dance dress on Wardrobe Refashion. ;-D
And a shot of the hankie and chapstick pocket:
You can’t really see it, but under the flap near the rim of the bag, I made a loop of floral fabric for my sunglasses.
Hopefully I’ll get to take it out on a course next week! And maybe do a bit better than 38 over par. Haha!!!
I had less than 1 hour to make a present for a baby shower on Saturday so I decided to customize a pack of onesies from my gift stash with iron on transfers.
I downloaded some simple black and white pictures, tinted them Picasa, printed and ironed them on.
I also added fabric glitter paint to the starbursts onesie for extra oomph.
I think they turned out pretty cute!
I liked the neckline of the top on the left but it wasn’t long enough. So I cut the bottom of the longer top and attached it to the shorter top.
It was so much easier working with this stretchy fabric than I thought it would be.
I’m not sure if I should take in the sides of the top or not. I kinda like it loose. It reminds me of 80′s dancewear. What do you think?
I had this pretty horrible denim romper in my stash.
I needed a medium sized bag to use as a ‘poolside tote’ for my upcoming vacation.
So I sketched a basic boat shape on brown paper and cut it down the center. Each leg gave me two pieces.
I cut a 4 inch wide strip just above the waist to use for the gusset.
I cut around the two pockets and sewed then together. I added a strip of velcro to keep my wallet’s center pocket closed and denim cord to attach the wallet to the bag(I’m dorky that way).
I used another pair of cotton twill shorts(lightweight) for the lining.
At this point I was out of denim and needed a strap so I cut up a denim skirt.
The two rings in the strap were also salvaged from yard sale shorts.
The bag closes with a magnetic snap.
I had to replace a sewing needle during this project so that, the cost of velcro, cost of the clearanced magnetic snap and yard sale clothes made this bag cost $.78 .
Good deal. What do you think?
