I love em!  I'm totally intimidated by the prospect of sewing naugahyde (don't know how to spell it either), so that you would just jump in and do it with your first bag is totally impressive.  I love the other two as well!  You chose great fabrics.

Oh, and where did you get the handle/strap for the third bag?

Don't know if the second one is crumpled from being crushed after you made it or not, but for smoother seams and hems it's always a good idea to iron them before sewing, reduces the likelyhood of the fabric puckering up as you sew it especially around pinned areas.

But good job on all three, that first one is really cool, love that fabric - was it hard to sew? Did it slip or stick at all as you worked it through the machine?

I really like the first one: love the colour. And good for you for trying something intimidating on your first attempt! They're all very nice: the pear fabric is great as well.

That first bag is so cool, the color is incredible. That is an impressive start for sewing bags.
