Okay - I have been very inspired by all of you talented Craftsters here, so I have been making bags and wallets like crazy recently. Here are a few, just to see if I can post pics. If it works, I'll have more photo posts to come!
So - here are some small clutches I made as Christmas gifts for several members of my hubby's family . . .
They all have contrasting lining and a little inside pocket, but I forgot to take photos of the inside before we sent them off.
Here is a bag I made for a friend:
And here's a little Christmas-y purse for one of my son's little friends from preschool. (it has blck cat lining fabric - forgot to take pics of the lining . . . )
Love it! I love how there are so many different bag types on here! I am fully and truly addicted to making bags now!!!! Might have to get me that pattern, there, though the link says it's sold out. We'll see!
Cute! I have that tute bookmared, but haven't gotten around to trying it . . . might have to do so soon! I've been too into making the really cute little wallets lately - just bought a bunch of fat quarters to make some more! Maybe a couple of them will turn into that purse instead . . . (I don't have any cool old pillowcases to use! )
Very cute! Congrats on being done! I am almost done with my sewing for the holidays - just finished clutches for the hubby's female family members night before last, and last night and this morning made 5 little zipper pouches for the kids' teachers to put little hershey's kisses and some kiddie-crafted stuff in. Now I'm going to work on a messanger bag for a friend (hoping it turns out well so I can give it to her instead of having to do the mad dash to buy something!), then I THINK I will be done and can sew for me!
I've loved all of your three-part Christmas stuff, BTW. All of it looks great!
With the fusible fleece, does it come out puffy? I'd love a good interfacing or something to use on my bags, but I don't want them to seem like they should be quilted or something. Not the look I generally go for, IYKWIM.
