I've been sewing for about the past 6 years and only recently have started using pre-made patterns. Most of the sewing I do usually involves my tailoring shirts so they fit me.

My recent conquest involves me making 3 different bags from see & sew pattern B4645. I really enjoy making these because they're very straight forward. The only trouble I've had so far is when I'm sewing the fabric around the bamboo handles it's nearly impossible to sew a straight line so there's just a few stitches that jumped a bit here and there.

Each of the bags are fully lined and have a large pocket on the inside. They are all made out of 100% cotton and also have a layer of heavy weight interfacing in between the layers of fabric.

They're large which is great since I tend to carry everything but the kitchen sink with me at all times. Wink

WHat do you guys think?

These are great!  I love the pink ameoba-ish patterned bag.  Stitching around handles is no fun.  Way to go!

Very pretty bags! I love the geisha one.  I keep meaning to start making bags (I am a purse addict!), but always get caught up in other projects.

Thanks! I'm now trying to experiment with different patterns now and whatnot. I'm going to be making a clutch purse for a friend of mine. Once I create it i'll post that one as well. Smiley
