this is my "life is a bowl of cherries" cargo-pocket purse. it came out a little too big, but i am pretty happy with how the pockets came out. they took longer than the actual purse did.
a closeup of one of the pockets on the cherry purse. =)
this is my cute little pink cherry raspberry watermelon purse! i found the ribbon and the rings for the strap at walmart, i dont think that's what they were originally for but i thought it'd be cute. this is a reversible tote that i made for my mom (forgot to edit my boyfriend's tummy out of the picture haha sorry!), the inside is the froggies with the blue bubbles on the pocket. she LOOVES it, and i was quite shocked at how cute it came out.
these were the first 3 purses i made. the outside 2 are from patterns, the middle one is the first one i figured out on my own.
so what do you guys think?? i also made a my little pony tote bag but i've gotta iron it before i post it (accident with raspberry iced tea, washing, and mistake of putting it in the dryer lol). i also made a lady bug wallet that i'll post soon. i think i'm obsessed lol
oh my god... that bag is EXACTLY what i tried to make. i LOVE IT. i spent like 3 days searching online to figure out how to do those cargo pockets and finally i just went to walmart and found a purse there with the pockets that i wanted and studied them and just copied them. they really are a pain in the ***!!!!!! i hated doing them! the pockets took longer than the rest of the purse! and in the end, i accidently made my purse WAAAY too big, so i was mad lol. but i LOVE yours. those are ADORABLE
thanks guys, i tried the hemming and stitching thing, i was afraid it wouldn't work cuz i have interfacing on the fabric and i thought it'd be too thick, but it worked great =) i'm almost done, i'm really happy with it so far, i'll try to post pics (i'm new to this site haha that'll be another fun thing to figure out) soon!! thanks again!!! =D
hey guys, i'm working on my 4th purse (just purchased my first sewing machine about 2 weeks ago - but i've been hand sewing for a million years), and i want it to have a gaZILLION pockets. i wanted these fat square pockets on the front and sides. i cut out a square, and then about a 2inch wide strip of fabric and sewed it around the sides and bottom or the square (to give the pocket depth, like a cargo pocket) but now my problem is, how do i sew it to the handbag without the seams showing? i was going to try sewing the seams inward, so they'd be inside the pocket, but it doesn't seem possible once you've got 2 of the sides sewn down. how can i do this attractively??? this is really baffling me and i would be SOOO thankful for help!!!!
