I just recently started sewing again. I did a swap where I had to make a bag, and I haven't stopped since. Here's some of what I've done...

Pleated tote bag, the brown is a lightweight velvety fabric.

Inside Brown Bag

I decided the brown bag wasn't good enough for my swap pal, so I made this one to go with it.


And one for me... The inside is bright yellow.

And a mini clutch...It closes with a magnetic snap.

Inside..I so love this pattern. Definately making more of these.

I also made a case for sock knitting needles

Here it is filled with my needles... I still need to make one for myself.

This little bag you wear across your chest. I have a large barrel bag style purse that I always use, but the straps constantly fall down. I needed something small/simple/light that I wouldn't have to worry about losing when I have my hands full of whatever stuff I'm buying.

Inside. I had my cell phone, keys, change purse, pen, and a small credit card sized wallet, and still had room leftover.

Don't mind the various kitty parts in the pictures. I have three cats, who don't move for anybody.

I love the brown one. I've been searching for ideas for a new bag for school (this is my last week of summer, unfortunately Sad) & I really like that design. Simple but different. Great job!

Those rock!!!  I love the spotty/circle fabric (reminds me of some scrapbook paper I had once, lol).  BTW, I'm in the same swap you speak of and it's the same reason the bug bit me, too, LOL.

I really like your bags! And I didn't notice the kitty parts until I read your comment about them...I went back for another look and (tee hee) There are random feet and tails everywhere! How funny! My cats are the same way...Thanks for the inspiration from your lovely bags.
