I started to learn how to operate my mom's old fashioned sewing machine last December, and after I got my stitches straight and neat, I started to go crazy with making bags.
All of the bags are made with tips and instructions from various tutorials around here, so I owe Craftster a great big deal.
(First time posting a topic and totally a beginner in making bags, but I appreciate constructive criticisms
This is the first bag I made. My mom got the fabric in the late 80's when she was at some fabric sale and has kept it until I saw it. I totally love this. I call this bag the Disco bag.
This is a bag I made for my sister. It is also the first time I tried the flat bottom thing.
A bag I made for my friend. I used the same flat bottomed tutorial but I added some patterned fabric.
These two are purses I made for my friends. It was the first time I tried interfacing and uszing zippers. I don't have a zipper foot though, but I didn't know the difference when you have one, so I couldn't really say. but I struggled a little bit.
I botched the second purse - the fabric is a sari material and it was quite slippery and when I was cutting it I stretched it so that it came out crooked and weird. That explains the weird shape
Also a bag for a friend. She likes green and always have her cellphone and keys all over so I added a pocket on the front side using the lining fabric. The bag is square bottomed and reversible, but I kinda botched the lining's side seam, so I prefer to make it only one side haha!
Finally, a simple drawstring bag I made for myself. I used leftover ribbons as straps.
Thanks for taking the time to look everyone
I only hope the next time I'll get even better with making these bags hehe.
