Lilpeach's purse cards

Date Posted: 19:00:11 04/30/04 Fri
Author: jazz it up
Subject: About Lil Peach's purse cards.....

First of all, they were adorable. They have lots of potential.

Second, I was thinking of using them for survival kits. Print up each saying individually, on it's own little business card size. Then rubber stamp or find small cute graphics to go with each card. Put 10 or so cards in a purse.

For example, pick 10 or so of these & find graphics for them:
Get well
…Alien – heard you were ‘alien’
…Aspirin – for all those aches & pains
…Bandaid – to heal the owies
…Bear – feeling a little grizzly?
…Bee – buzzing by with a get well wish
…Beet – you can ‘beet’ this
…Bounce – bounce back soon
…Car – feeling run down?
…Cat – ‘feline’ better?
…Chicken – feeling ruffled?
…Clock – it’s about time you were feeling better
…Cookies – because you are feeling crummy
…Feather – feeling down?
…Furniture – fully recovered?
Golf:
- the doctor says take your ‘iron’ everyday
- the doc says to live on greens
…Goose – feeling down?
…Horse – feeling down in the mouth
…Rainbow – wishing you well
…Rubber ball – help you bounce back
…Rubber band – snap back
…Pig -as they say down at the pig farm: ya cured yet?
…Star – just swinging by to wish you well
…Sun – wishing you brighter days ahead
…Tissue – to soften the blows
…Toy car – speedy recovery

What do you think? The kits could be mailed in an envelope.

[> Re: cigar box purses -- Emily, 19:44:50 07/01/03 Tue [1]

I glued some rhinestones on the box for decoration... and then for the handle I beaded glass beads on a wire and drilled holes through the box. Then stung the wire through the holes and you have a handle. I added one little charm to the handle too. Kind of a signture piece kind of thing. So hope that helped. I prefer the beaded handles over the ones you buy. I don't know if you have a Hancocks there... but Hancocks sells purse handles. Hope that helps any.

Was thinking
What do you think of using fabric to make wallet? Follow the same pattern and stitch using paper foundation piecing as in quilting. I have lot of scraps of fabric. Just wanted to share this thought (idea) with you all. Still a very good pattern and good idea. Thanks again for sharing.

weave it with fabric....its a great idea!!!! keep us posted about it..... do it sorta like fabric origami? or iron the scraps on interfacing for stiffness??

Juice pouch purses

Date Posted: 05:29:40 01/07/04 Wed
Author: Pamela
Subject: Juice purses

I saw at a craft show purses made out of juices for kids, not the boxes but the bags. Some sort of foil. They were really cute. They were sewn together with yarn. Each end was one front from the juice and the front and back were two fronts and the bottom were one and a half. Know what I mean? Has anyone made one of these? I'd carry it myself! I wanted to buy one but the lady was selling for $12.00, I only had 10.

Replies:

[> Re: Juice purses -- Joan, 09:04:49 01/07/04 Wed [1]

A small bag like the Capri Sun bag in the link takes 10 bags. I especially like to get the 6 different flavors of Kool Aid to give a variety of colors to the purse. To clean the bags I take a serrated knife and slit the fold that is in the bottom of the bags. I soak them in soapy water, then rinse, shake water out, and leave to dry.

To make the handles, I take 2 bags (of different colors) and tri-fold them vertically and then cut on the fold lines to make 3 strips from each of the 2 bags. I take 2 strips of different colors and zig zag in white thread on the sewing machine to make one long strip. With 2 strips, each 2 strips long, I tri-fold them long wise and zig zag down the length to secure.
Now for the fronts and sides--Take two bags (again, I use different colors), abutting them side by side with an over lap in the middle of about 1/4". Zig zag down that length in the middle. Do this again (I use 2 more different colors) for the other side. Fold down the top of each side about 1/2" and zig zag close to the top, securing the handles (I also add a round velcro in the middle of each piece to use for closing the bag). Zig zag again about 1/2" from the top, securing the handles with 2 lines of stitching.

Now for the bottom of the bag--Take 2 bags and overlap them to be the same length as the 2 bag fronts sewn together for the front and the back piece. Zig zag the 2 bottom bags together in a Z pattern to secure and reinforce.

Bottom to sides--Place the bottom piece along the bottom of a side, wrong sides together. Zig zag right along the edge, leaving about 1/4" free on each end. Zig zag the bottom's other edge to the back side, again leaving 1/4" free on each end.

Now for the sides--Take 2 more bags(this is where I use a fifth and then sixth color) and fold down the top about 1/2" and zig zag right along the top edge and then again 1/2" down. Place an edge of the side to an edge of a front, wrong sides together, and zig zag along the edge from the very top to the very bottom (this is where it helps to have left that 1/4" free on each end!) Do again with the other side of the side, then stitch in the other end.

I make the bigger bags by making each front piece with 6 bags, 2 rows, each with 3 bags. The bag is then 2 bags tall, and use 2 bags for each side, and three bags for the bottom

I had these saved from someone, wish I new who, I have not tried them. Joan

Kool Aid Jammer Purse

Subject: Kool-aid jammer purse

Thanks to you guys I was able to find directions for the purse. My daughter saw these at a festival a couple of weeks ago and of course just had to have one. Well, being the "frugal" person I am, I told her we would have to try to make one before we bought one. I finished it yesterday and was pretty pleased with the way it turned out. We used beads in her school colors for the handles. Wish I knew how to post a pic.
Now we have to make one with feathers around the top.

Jo...glad that you found the directions to make the purses. When we started making them 6 months ago there wasn't any directions out there to be found, so just made my own. Most of them that we have seen aren't lined, which would make my old Home Ec Teacher croak, lol...she was very serious about everything being lined.
As for posting pictures, you have to have your picture on a photo gallery some place so that you have the URL to put it on the board.
Go to this website and scroll down to the bottom, it will give you directions on how to post a picture on the board:

jammer purse pic.

[> Re: Kool-aid jammer purse -- KrafteeKaren, 12:36:28 07/21/04 Wed [1]

Jo...I do mine a little differently, if I do this right it should show you a picture of the ones that I do.

Sandy...I never found any directions to the purses when I started making them...I've done 3 different sizes of them. Basically you split the bottom of the pouch, pour out the drink, wash and dry them, then sew them together overlapping a little bit on the sides of the juicy containers. I sew everything up with invisible thread so that it isn't noticable. Depending on the size is how many juicy containers you need...big one it takes 18, smaller one or out of the Big Pouches takes 10. I sew up the front and back first, attach the sides to the front and back so that it looks like an open box, then attach the bottom to the purse, don't sew clear up to the edge when you are attaching the sides and bottom, back off the sewing machine a little bit. For the lining, I just measured what the completed sides and bottom (cut 3--2 sides and 1 bottom), front (cut 2 for front and back), then cut about a 2" strip across your fabric for the handles which you will need 4 of those by the time you turn them. I learned after a few of the purses to put plastic in the handles, it holds them up a little better. I put pockets inside of mine which are easy to make too. I was told that I was selling mine too cheap because some of them have been selling for $65 and that seems way to high for what you have invested in them.
If you need anymore info, email me, would be glad to answer any questions you have.
Hugs

WOW! that is sooo cool Karen. I saw on a site somewhere where someone had made a bag entirely from Starbusrt wrappers it was awesome. If only I could remember where I saw it??? Senior moment here.LOL:)I think it said it took over 14 bags of starburst in total. It looked like it was held together with clear vinyl or something--it was pretty cool. I have seen bags made from cereal boxes too (captain Crunch and stuff) amazing what talented crafters there are out here on the web.

[> Re: Magazine Purse -- Debbie Heck, 11:20:55 05/25/06 Thu [1]

I found this in the directions, bet mIchaels would have it.

Choosing the Iron on vinyl: It’s made by Therm-o-Web and is available at most major craft stores. At some shops you can buy it off a large bolt (I paid $5.99 a yard) and other places sell it pre-packaged. It’s available in both matte and luster finishes, and both will work equally well, it’s just a matter of personal preference. Whatever you fancy. The bags on this page were made with luster.

[> Re: Paper Purse Swap Pictures -- Joan (UK), 18:38:51 04/03/04 Sat [1]

Thanks to Shirley and Annie for posting the pictures.

For Kritternol ... the purse had several pockets inside, so I created small cards with images which I had on the computer to fit inside. This one was a friendship purse, with a photo of myself and quotes and phrases which referred to 'friendship'. I plan to make similar ones for daughter, mother, grandaughter, aunt, etc. The ideas for cards are endless ... with inspirational thoughts, they could become the thought for the day.

This was a fun project, and differennt. I'm game for another swap if there is sufficient interest.

i made the purse handle from mine with yarn and metallic thread (drill twisted it real tight)... photo corners were used to gussy up the corners... and to use for a closure on the one... i tried a couple of the origami ones but ended up using a different variation (another happy accident... hehehe)

thanks again everyone.... it was so much fun...

Hi meme, for the edging on the purse I used fabric trim..just glued it on..the swap was so much fun and the ideas and possiblities for decorating are endless. I've made them and decorated them before with those string pearl beads, sequins, all kinds of charms..it's fun! I am game for another purse swap if anyone wants to particiapte..only thing is I won't be able to host it since I am stationed in Greece..it wouldn't make sense to mail them all over here for me to mail back to the US..lol:)

These are too cute. I just couldn't imagine a paper purse. But, I really enjoyed looking at what cute things you have created.

Fleece purse

Subject: purses made out of fleece

I saw one and it was made with purchased handles and then just fringed around that and the other was just a little girls. I would love to know how to do these


[> Re: purses made out of fleece -- Nancy K, 10:24:59 03/01/04 Mon [1]

I just saw a free handout at Hancock Fabrics about the fringed fleece purses. Do you have one of these stores near you? If not let me know and I will try and get back there to get one for you.


[> Re: purses made out of fleece -- Nancy K, 11:47:23 03/02/04 Tue [1]

I don't know how to post pictures. All I have is the paper flyer from the store. I checked their website and couldn't find this pattern there. www.hancockfabrics.com
I will post the directions. The pictures really do help to understand how to make it.
Supplies needed
3/4 yard fleece print
1 ( 3/4" ) shank style button
1 small safety pin
quarter cut ruler by June Tailor
rotary cutter- medium or large size
cutting mat for rotary cutter

Directions
Cut 2 pieces 16" x 24" making sure the stable side of the stretch goes up and down.
Cut out a 4" square from each side of the bottom corner of fleece.
Fringe bottom 4" deep and 1/2" wide across. Tie knots using simple overhand knot.
Fringe each side of purse-- 9" up from bottom.
Tie using overhand knot.
Cut handles 1" wide. Do not cut on dashed line (need to see the picture to understand this) fold down to form flap.
One flap gets tucked into the purse and the other flap folds over the front of the purse. Fringe bottom of flap and tie two strips together.
Safety pin on the shank button and make a slit for the button to fit through.

Subject: bra purse ??

Some how I missed something. Where are the instructions for the bra purse? Sounds like something I'd like to make, but I searched the archives and can't find it. I keep seeing references to it. Can anyone help me find it? TIA

Booob Holder Purses , that's what my husband calls them.


[> Re: bra purse ?? -- Christine (Memphis), 10:31:09 12/17/04 Fri [1]

Judy, I have made several. I can email you pics if you want. They are quick to make and lots of fun! No sewing involved. I just used my glue gun. Every bra is different. You'll just have to improvise and see which ones work best. A padded bra in a D cup was a great size. I added boa feathers, trimmed them in beads or whatever looked nice. The elastic side pieces are discarded, but the hook & loop end pieces are used on the top of the "purse" for closure. On some I even put the label telling the size on the inside for a fun element!!! The straps are left intact to use as the handles. I have made them in all colors & some even multi-colored, but the ones that seem to sell the best are the black bras with black feathers around the top and black beading on the bottom.They look very elegant and you have to look twice to realize it is a bra. If you are mailing them, I recommend putting a small inflated balloon inside the purse to help keep it from mashing.

Christine, I was wondering if I could also be blessed with your pictures. My daughter has a rite of passage coming up and I need a 'red' gift. This would be hilarious as a holder for the real gift. Besides, she might start a new fashion trend in school. Wow, talk about recycling! hehehe
Thank you.

Oh my gosh!!! I'm laughing my head off!! I must have missed your first posting on this one Sue!!!! katie you are Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelarious too!!!! I wrote bra purse poems quite awhile ago too...so I don't know if these are in the archives or not (assuming they would have been with Katieangel's and Sue's...) Here they are just in case:

HILLBILLY EVENING BAG
Ma toll me "don't waste nuthin'"
So I took my ol brazierre
And made it somthin' speshul
And kinda fun, ya hear?
I put them seams together
And fixed it up right swell
Now don't you think it's purdy?
It shore did come out well!

Granny was God fearin’
A right nice friend to all
And I sure miss the way we
Used to have a ball!
I thought I’d take her old bras
And make a right fine purse
In memory of dear Granny
(Who went home in a hearse)
She used to say “now darling”
Let nuthin’ go to waste
That’s why I used her old bras
But added my own taste
I think I’m on to something
And really on a roll
I give the thanks to Granny
God rest her lovin’ soul!

This purse is very unique
Just don't look too close
For it's made out of my bra
And my boobs are hanging loose

My boobs head toward my feet
no matter what I do
so I took away their means of support
and made a purse for you.

My bra is always empty
whether on my arm or tits
I used to dream of melons
instead of tiny pits.
But instead of bra burning
I decided I would sew
but now my purse is empty
I've neither boobs nor dough.

Nancy
I think you can use wallpaper or even scrapbooking paper for the purses
Some times if you go to the wallpaper store they give away there sample books
If you go here http://www.jersgirl.com/templates/index.html she has templates for alot of things not frames I don't think but if I come across one I'll send it your way or perhaps some one here knows These gals are great about that as you know.
Not sure about what you mean about folders but you can go to your documents and created a new folder by right clicking and then there is a menu that comes up at the top is says new created a new folder and then drag you favorites to the new folders such as templates clip art and such then type what you one in the heading and there you have it a new folder but I'm not sure if this is what your refering too

The paper purse can be used like a card in which you write inside or put an insert in....or some even hold post its....just a couple ideas

[> Re: Three question please:paper purse,picture frame,folders -- crafterwannabe, 10:09:07 03/01/05 Tue [1]

Nancy - Did you see the original posts about the paper purses? Here's one link in archives. There's another on the Valentine's Day Board - someone put gold foiled-cover coins in them. A couple of the poems there would be appropriate for St. Patrick's Day too so long as the author doesn't mind your changing one holiday to another. On the post I'm linking here you'll see several ways in which members are using the paper purses.

I'd also like to suggest that when you have multiple questions you post them separately - believe you'd get better responses that way. Members who are versed on a particular subject will look at the subject question if it's something they can help with but not many of us could help with all 3 and your other questions may get overlooked.

[> [> Re: Three question please:paper purse,picture frame,folders -- nancy, 01:14:01 03/02/05 Wed [1]

ok, i thought this way would had been easier and not take so much space. thanks

[> Re: Three question please:paper purse,picture frame,folders -- sara, 10:19:10 03/01/05 Tue [1]

Nancy,
it depends what size you make the paper purses, as to what you put in it. I gave my daughter the idea and she is making larger ones for her daughters birthday party. She is five and only girls are invited for a princess party.
As suggested you could make small note cards and give to a friend. Like: your special.
As far as making new files, it depends on your computer.
I have had Windows XP for a few months now and love the fact that I can make a new folder so fast and just drag and drop the items. hope this helps too
sara

[> Re: Three question please:paper purse,picture frame,folders -- granniekato2, 12:57:54 03/01/05 Tue [1]

Nancy... On my computer, where your bookmarks are.. if you click on bookmarks and then on manage bookmarks you can make a new folder there and then click and drag the bookmarks into the folder. I hope this is what you are wanting. Kathy


[> Re: Three question please:paper purse,picture frame,folders -- bonniek, 17:13:43 03/02/05 Wed [1]

Hi Nancy, don't give up with your computer! I have windows XP and if you click on your favorite folder then press the right side of your mouse button a little window will open and you can click on NEW FOLDER. it will put one right there in favorites. Then you can point your mouse over that new folder and use the right side mouse button and click to open a little window again and you can select rename folder and it will make a little space to type in the name you want on the folder. I save so many things in my favorite!!!!! It's very nice to seperate things so you can find them later. To put things into each folder just click on the thing you want to move and hold the mouse button down and drag it to the folder you want it in and then let go of the mouse button. Good Luck and have fun with all the great folks here!

[> Re: Three question please:paper purse,picture frame,folders -- jacksmum, 18:08:11 03/02/05 Wed [1]
