I just got a sewing machine and I'm having fun with it.  This is my frist purse and wallet.  I lined the purse, not sure if I did it right, but I'll learn  Cheesy The bag goes around my hips because I hate carrying things.  It has a Velcro closure because I'm not brave enough to try a zipper yet.  My Husband has already claimed the wallet because the duct tape one I made him over a year ago is just about toast.  So here are my creations (no pattern, just sort of winged it)

Cute stuff!  I just got a camo jacket and I'm going to rip it apart and make a bag out of it.  I like the way you did your bag with a little belt.

I'm interested in personal swaps -- I love bracelets & necklaces and I don't know how to make them.

Thanks, The belt has a sports clip so it's adjustable.  I plan on making more, probably as Christmas gifts to get better at sewing.  They will look a little more finished, as I'm learning as I go Smiley
