wow i used a lot of exclamation points there...oh well, i am pretty excited. So i was a little nervous about my first post showing my creations because i just like to look around this site for ideas, but i don't think my stuff is as great as the amazing things other people post, but nonetheless, i am posting

i made this one using the tinafish tutorial http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=35575.0 for a slouchy hobo bag, but i made it deeper (actually that was on accident but i liked how it turned out). it was a denim fabric with cherries on it that i got from the remnants rack at joanns for 64 cents a few years ago, i thought it was a great deal =]

this is my new guitar bag that i made using mewyam's tutorial http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=210511.0. mine came out way too small but it fits my wallet and phone and stuff, so i like using it. i made a lot of mistakes on it but i made it from some old capris, pants, karate gi, and purse that i saved from the yard sale stuff in the garage so it cost nothing to make =]


it also has a really cool zippered pocket inside that i forgot to take a picture of...


and last but not least my new gusset bag from this tutorial http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=95787.0...which was very frustrating to make because my sewing machine wouldn't cooperate, but i like the outcome. next time i think i will use some thicker interfacing because it doesn't hold its shape too well...

sorry for the many pictures but i was pretty proud of these three bags...let me know what you think. i'll appreciate some constructive criticism too.

Wow awesome bags. They are all nice, but the homemade giraffe is my favorite! How did you mark his face and spots? Doesn't look like brown felt. Just to let you know I too felt (and still do at times) intimidated when I first found craftster a few months ago, right around the time I started sewing. But then I realized we all have to start somewhere. Can't expect my projects(mostly purses,bags and clothes) to as perfect as some that have been sewing for years. Anyway you really did a great job, give yourself a pat on the back Wink

thank you so much. i made the face by just sewing little lines and somehow it turned out like i wanted it to and the spots were brown felt that handsewed onto the giraffe body

thank you! and for the cherries bag, i just kinda drew out my pattern based on the tinafish tutorial, but i didn't have enough material so i didn't cut it out as wide as it should have been so it came out deeper, but i still like how it came out =]
