I'm new to the whole bags/purses thing and I have to sew everything by hand (ugh), but I think I'm kind of proud of these:



I made these three purses out of a children's Christmas Carol book I picked up at a car boot sale last weekend. (My MIL thinks I'm crazy.) I'm kind of worried about how sturdy the ribbons will be, though?

And from the same boot sale: Buzz Lightyear duvet cover turned tote bag:



Front and back. It's lined with the same materials on the inside 'cause I wanted to make it reversable but in the end I couldn't figure out how to do it neatly.
