Well, I've never actually posted up any of my projects, because my digicam is really old and ... crappy. But I decided that I would use it anyway and post up the different things I've made.

This is the first full sized purse I've ever made. I made the outer using a somewhat thick fabric I bought in the Garment District, and the lining is a soft pink fabric my boyfriend mailed to me. I made it using the slouchy hobo bag tutorial, but the inside isn't made with the pleats (or what ever they are...)


The fabric started out really stiff and hard, but after I used it a few times it's turned out to be very soft.

This purse I made using a sewing kit sent to me by hoxierice for the July Birthday swap. I love the outer fabric, and the bag is so soft.



This is a bookbag I've made for my sister. It's outer is a very heavy fabric I got from Jo-Anns, and I'm not sure what the lining is. She wanted a Tinkerbell applique. There's a pocket under the flap.



The next three pouches I made using the lined zippered bag tutorial, all with a 3" zipper. The last olive striped one has a ribbon loop, and it's my favorite.








These two stuffies were my first and second stuffies I've ever made. The second was my first try at embroidery. I like them.


This is the first dress I've made using a pattern, and I'm really happy with the outcome. I had to alter it a bit, because the dress pattern seems to be made for a woman with a MUCH larger bust than I do.



There now. I started sewing about 6 months ago, and I really enjoy doing it. Thanks for looking!
