wow those are really nice!! i like them a lot Smiley
did you use a pattern or make it up yourself?

thanks a lot Smiley
I make all my patterns myself, because I tend to prefer huge bags with lots of pockets, and I don't think there are many patterns like that for sale over here.

Haven't posted in a great while!
I've been trying out more complex bags and here are two I've made for hauling all my school things:

The first one:

It's really quite big, I can fit 4 quite thick A4 folders into it + everything else I need.


the back pocket

the corners

the insides

it also has an over-body strap

The second one:

it's even bigger than the first Cheesy

the insides

back pocket detail

front pockets

(this was x-posted to craftgrrl)

I was pretty bored in August, so I thought I'd make a bag for myself

It measures about 13x21 inches, so I can fit my whole life in there and still have room for other stuff Cheesy It's made of umm.. microfibre, I guess.

The back with a zippered pocket

Flap closure

The top has a zipper under the flap.

The insides are shiny yellow!

I also added a secret pocket in the side of the purse for my mp3 player!

I liked the first bag very much, but the colour is pretty bold, so I made another version with minor alterations in light grey.

This one has a pocket in the front and there's no little flappy thing attached to the big flap.

Top zipper.

The insides- toile lining and a little pocket for my mirror.

There's also this little carabiner thing inside, to which I can attach whatever thing I don't want to go missing in the huge bag.

Yet again, the secret pocket.

I already posted this on Craftgrrl, but I decided to post it here too!
I thought I needed a bag for the new school semester (I think I need a new bag too often  Grin) so I came up with this. It was inspired by a bag I saw on Delia's website, but I altered it a bit.
So here it is!

It's pretty big, because I need to fit my a4 size notebooks and books in it. I have never poked myself so many times with pins as during the making of this bag  Angry

A close-up of the snitch. All hand embroidered.. and as a result my fingers hurt like hell.

one side pocket

the back zippered pocket.

the insides of the bag. The lining fabric is really great, with Gryffindor-like lions on it, but unfortunately you can't see them on this picture  Undecided

I'll try to work on a tutorial this weekend as some people have requested one alreadyl, but I can't promise I'll definitely do it this weekend.

crazyfool- just let me know if you have any problems so I can help you out!

frenchkitty83- I wasn't very fond of embroidering at first but now I'm totally addicted. It's so much fun  Cheesy

they were by me  Smiley I was worried that they had got lost somewhere, because I sent them more than two weeks ago!

Yess!!! I received your package! When my dad brought it home I was like... hmm who is this person and what is she sending me??( I have really bad memory- sorry Tongue) And then I opened it (the envelope had a cool opening system!) and I literally squealed! An Eduardo hat!!! Gosh I love it so and I was just wanting a new hat, but I wasn't really bothered to make one myself so it's perfect! (My mom claimed it when I went to show her Cheesy she said that it goes really well with her cardigan. haha )

I'll post picutres tomorrow!

Thank you so much Smiley and I'm glad you like the scarf!!

thank youu! Smiley

I did use a pattern, but it was an altered version of the rounder roomy bag. I actually just used a couple of tutorials that have been posted here and just threw them together (for the record- I used the rounder roomy bag tutorial, zipper pocket tutorial and took the zippered top tutorial from Tinafish's amazing hobo bag tute).
But if you'd like a full tutorial, then I could most probably do it (like with pictures and things),but I'm not really sure when, because school stuff is taking up so much time  Sad I need to craft gosh darnit!  Grin
