This is my first post so I hope you like them!

I just took up sewing a couple of months ago, and I decided to make myself these 2 similar bags. Stylish enough to use everyday, but big enough to hold bibs and wet wipes when taking out my toddler about town!  Grin



Is this not the biggest vintage button you have ever seen? LOL


This 2nd one I made with curtains from my mom's old basement -


and it's inside -


I haven't chosen a button for the 2nd bag closure yet, and I may just go without it. My stitching could be better, I'm working on it!

Thanks for checkin them out! DIY Forever!

WOW - excellent work for only sewing a couple of months.  Did you make your own patterns??  The pleats look great!

Thanks! Yes I did. I used the basics I've learned from other bag tutorials on here and other sites and was able to whip them up.  Smiley The 1st one took me about 4 hrs! LOL!

These are awsome, you said you started sewing recently! They seem pretty tricky! Did you make the pattern up yourself?

I did! I took the basics on smaller things I have made from some tutorials (the Jordy bag, a pleated clutch, zipper pouches, etc) and attempted something bigger using the same techniques. It took me a while to figure it all out, but eventually everything worked.

Yeah, I started sewing maybe 4ish months ago, and started on very small things.. I'm working my way up.  Wink

Thanks!
