Hey everyone Smiley

Here are a few purses I've made for a mini-craft fair this week.

This one was made with pink fabric and denim lining...my said says it's too summerish though, and probably won't sell now.

I made this one with an old sweater! Original plans had been to felt it, but it wasn't made of 100% wool and I wasn't sure it'd work. There is a button closure, and light blue lining.

I got this ice cream fabric from JoAnns (and also got some from a swap as well!) and absolutely adore it! I'm hoping no one buys it because.. I sort of want to keep it.  Roll Eyes


These are both just simple totes. I plan on making a few more of these since they're so simple!

I hope you like them!

Thanks for the encouraging words, guys!

roxy-- I have no pattern .. I just sort of made it up as I went along  Roll Eyes I made 4 large rectangles (front & back, lining front & back), 2 long rectangles (for the bottom) and 4 small ones for the sides. Then I made the ties and handles just as one normally would.

mebsmommy-- Felting is the process of making the fibers tighter on bags, scarves, purses, etc. Here's a helpful website about it if you're interested: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter03/FEATfelthis.html.

wait so i'm putting it together in my head right now

is it kind of like you make the outside and lining seperately
then when you go to put them together you have the lining inside out and the outside right side out
and you put the outside inside the lining and sew around the edges
then some how flip it out....

gah linings always manage to confuse me

Haha that sounds like how I did it. I have a pattern from a really easy tote and even though I don't use the actual pattern to make the purse, the directions help me along when I'm confused.
