LOVE 'EM ALL!!  Do you eat, sleep and breathe purses?!  Wow!  How long did you work on each bag?  Are they weekend projects or do you work on them a little each day?

They're all GORGEOUS!!  I just adore the pink flower one with the striped handles.  Did you make that with the "knock-off Coach" tutorial?  It's a fantastic design and even better fabric choices! Smiley

I wrote the tutorial.  hee hee!  So yes...I did use it. 

I sell bags for a living...well...I try to make a living at it.  I also babysit a couple of kids to make ends meet.  I sew for a few hours every day but I did make all of these over the weekend.  My girls were well behaved and managed to entertain themselves for once so I got alot accomplished. Cheesy

They are all my own patterns other than one that is a modified Sha Sha Dream Bag from a tut on here I read years ago.   I'm currently working on a tut for the pleated bag so I'll post it when it's done. 

Umm...time to make a bag...

The Knock off Coach I can put together in under an hour now.
The pleated one is a new pattern so it takes about 1.5 hours since I'm still working out the bugs. 
The bamboo handle one is about an hour or so. 

That is if the pieces are cut and interfaced already.  I have a cutting day once a week where all I do is cut, interface and watch movies. It's soo much easier to sit down and sew when I have all the prep work done. Smiley

I LOVE your knock-off Coach tutorial!!!  I can't wait to try it!  I'll definitely be looking for any other tutes you put up! Smiley

Shoot, you haven't been on a roll, you've been on a ...giant purse train, or something.  Grin  So hard to pick a fave, but I like the big blue flower one and the ribbon one!
