This is my first post. Also this is my first time to complete a project that wasn't part of a kit.
The first is a purse that I got the pattern from you can make this.com Its called the  debut purse.




The next bag is one that my local fabric store was having people make. We are to use it so that we don't have to use their paper bags. Each time we use them we also get entered in a drawing. So needless to say I have been to the fabric store alot.


The lining was supposed to be the front but it ended up being too short so I switched them.
Please let me know what you think.  Smiley

Love your bags especially the tote bag. I am designing tote bags to sell. I figure if they do not sell then I can use them as gifts and I'll have them made way before Christmas.

I love that 2nd bag! I really like the patchwork - the fabrics are almost like they are from back in the day.

I love the purse.

I think that is a great idea with the store sponsoring to make a fabric bag to use at their store.  Grocery stores should do this (but you know that won't happen, but they are at least selling their own canvas bags and encouraging reusing bags and incentives for not using plastic, at least some are).

Thank you for the nice comments! I love the tote and my friend and I were very excited when the fabric store started the reusable bag contest. I had been wanting to make one for a while.
