it's been quite a while since i've posted anything, and mostly that's because i didn't have a camera. i sure have been busy though, because i didn't have a job. my mum just got a new camera yesterday, so i've got lots to show. and bear with me, i'm not too much of a pro with this camera yet, but i think the pictures are decent, just a little grainy.


bag no. one: made of shiny lavender-ish upholstery fabric, lined with cadet blue cotton, and four re-purposed brass/metal rings from an old purse. simple, no pockets, but nice and roomy, and very sturdy. (please ignore my fresh-out-of-shower-not-even-finger-combed hair.)



no. two: same style, but only two pleats on a side, and one brass ring. made of thick blue ?cotton? woven fabric, with blue polkadot cotton lining. also no pockets.



bag no. three: an experiment. i took a long leather strap from an old purse, and cut it in two. the purse itself is just a square bag with for loop/tabs on each side, where the straps a threaded through. for now they're just knotted, but i will find a way to permanently fasten them. i'm not too sure how much i like this one. but i guess it turned out pretty nicely.



bag no. four: i love this thing! it's just a little makeup/whatever bag, i made for the convenience of switching purses so frequently. just my way of keeping everything together and semi-organized. it's just a plain zippered pouch, with amazing printed fabric. it's just lined with this stuff my mum calls muslin. i don't know what it's for but i just used it because it was there. i had to hand stitch the zipper in, since my sewing maching was spazzing on me.  i also added a loop so i could use it as a wristlet too.



and bag no. five: a little plaid handbag, with lots of pleats. this one was also a tester/practice bag. that turned out pretty nicely. lined with some purple woven fabric.



and again, i apologize with the photos. the camera itself is amazing quality, but i'm just getting used to all the features.

comments and criticism is, as always, welcomed and greatly appreciated!
thanks for looking!

i LOVE the first one! added to my wists...

if you don't mind me asking, what order do you sew the pieces together? i can't quite figure out how to get the handles to be sewn into the purse so that the ends are hidden while also adding a lining...
