Pending Project

So I was cleaning up my apartment, specifically my sewing area and I realized I have too many unfinished projects. I really should get them all done. The problem for most of them is they’re still in the “design”. Most of them are bags that have been cut out already and have the main body ready to go, it’s just the little details that are elusive. Like what I should add to make it pop or give it that “WolfChild” flare. So this week I pulled out a few of them and just started doing the little things that need to be done with them like cutting out linings and sewing tags and pockets. All in the hope that that creative spark will fire and I’ll be able to finish them soon. I was able to finish two of them so far but my goal is to get my whole pending project drawer empty by the end of the year. I’ll keep you posted how it goes. Keep an eye on my store for new products.

Red & White Rising Sun Coin Purse

I made this coin purse originally in Black and Red vinyl with a more gothic look to help raise money for Japan’s Earthquake Diaster this year. I raised over $200 in just about a month and was very please with the positive responce of the online community. I’ve been planning on making one in more tradisional style but it too me awhile to get it finished. Well, here it is, the Red and White Rising Sun coin purse! Hope you like it. I’m still donated money from these Japan themed items.

Pokeball backpack

So here are some progress pictures of the Pokeball Backpack commision I got two weeks ago at the First Friday Art Walk. I just finished the pattern and cutting out the fabric. The way I laid it out is wrong the red is the top so just ignore the layout. The Front that consists of four pieces; the top (red), the bottom (white), the middle (black), and the button (white) in the middle of the black. The there is just the back (white) and the sides (white) then the linging which will be red cotton. I’m planning on using 1 inch wide black nyon webbing for the straps and handle. The straps will be adjustable, per customers request. I’ve never made a round bag this big before so this should be interesting to sew. Plus it’s vinyl so that’ll make it extra tricky. I’ll be sure to post pitures of the finished product before giving it to the customer. I’ll probably have them on etsy as a custom order as well.

Rising Sun iPhone Case & P.O.S.

After making my Rising Sun Coin Purse I got a special request from a friend of mine to make a iPhone case and a P.O.S. (pocket on a string). Its the same design as the Rising Sun coin purse just a little bigger & with a strap. It was a bit tricky getting the the rays of the sun to look right on the larger P.O.S. size bag. All in all they came out great. 50% of the sale of these bags is going to the Japanese Red Cross.

Rising Sun Coin Purse

After being so moved by all the people donating, since I have limited funds myself, I decided to make purses with Japanese themes and sell them to donate 50% of the proceeds. This coin purse is the first of many I’m going to make to contribute to one of the worst disasters in all the world. The Rising Sun insignia was draw freehand to make a pattern piece that was then cut out in this bright red vinyl. Since most of my work is gothic or rock theme, I felt this should be no different. I will also be making them with white backrounds but this was my first idea.

I’ve always loved Japan and have spent the last 5 years of my life studing the language. Most of the music I listen to currently is Japanese rock music. Everything from Gackt and Buck-Tick, to X-Japan and An Cafe. One day I hope to visit Japan and maybe live there.

With that in mind it only seemed fitting for me to venture into making Japanese themed or style bags. I’ve been working on doing some Anime inspired bags, but hadn’t yet gone into making anything else that was Japan specific. It’s unfortunate that I should get inspiration from such tragity. I wanted to donate something to the people of Japan, and since I don’t have money all I can offer is my sewing skills. I don’t really have a number goal in mind but I will be selling these bags and collecting the money to send to Japan. It’s the least this one person can do. It also gives people something tangible to show their support.

*NEW* Pink vinyl coffin clutch!

I designed this coffin clutch a few months ago when i noticed there was only ONE coffin clutch design in all of the Gothic underworld. I worked up the prototype and made it for a friend who test drove it for me. I recently was inspired to revist the clutch this week and prefected the design. I was also inspired to make something bright and punky in this normally dark and morbid shape. I have big plans for this clutch, it will become one of my staple designs like my coin purses and my totes. Without further ado here is my most recently made Coffin Clutch. This clutch is on sale now in my Etsy store!

*this bag looks a hundred times better in person and I tried every which way to make it look good but this fabric is too reflective to take decent pictures of without an professional photographer. 😀

Punk leopard P.O.S.

Okay so here is the latest from WolfChild Designs. Another Pocket On A String (P.O.S.) this time with a punky animal print theme. Main fabric is a grey/black leopard print foax fur. The lining is made with a plan black cotton. A blue leopard pring foax fur fabric was used for the cell/mp3/kay pockets inside. A large pocket is adjsent with a pink vinyl strip for destinction. A zipper at the top keeps your stuff safe. This is the first of my P.O.S.’s to feature a convertable strap design. The strap is connected at two small d-rings with snap hooks at either end of the strap. Dont like accross the shoulder strap? No problem, simply remove the strap and thread your favorite belt though the build in & ever stlyish belt loops.
