Too fab!!! Did you make a base purse first and attach the measuring tape? You could really sell that bag!!!

Wow, that's really good.  How did you get the measuring tapes to stay together? 
Haha, that first purse reminds me of the periodic table of elements with all the colors.

I've put part of one under part of another and sewed both together, kept doing it until I had the enough amount of them to make the bags :-) I hope this is understandable, english is not my first language eheh. Thanks!

No, I've just sewed them all together until I had a large surface like a fabric and then used it to make the purse ;-) I hope this is understandable, english is not my first language eheh. I've already sold 2 of that big purse, actually! The first one I made was a custom order and it ended up so good that I put it for sale. Thanks :-)

You've done a fabulous job!  I really like the way you staggered the flap on the first bag.  Show us some more! Smiley

I like the tea "bag" (?) too.  Is it a coin purse or wallet?  Do you have a pic of the inside?  It's very cute, too.

Your English is fine-I teach ESL and Craftster would be a great place for you to practice it-except for all of the typos we sometimes make!!
These are such cool bags, too.

Yes, I've been practising a lot in the crafts communities and websites I'm a member of :-) I have the Certificate of Advanced English from when I had english classes at a private school, but that was like, 3 years ago and now in college in the degree I'm taking we don't learn foreign languages eheh. Thanks!

Thanks for taking the time and posting the inside pics of the tea purse.  It's very adorable, and so simple!  Again, great job.
