All you people here at Craftster have inspired me to start sewing a lot more. I did these two bags using a pattern from Simplicity and really liked the way they turned out. My fave is the orange and green one. I actually made it for my friend but had to go back and get more fabric to make my own.  Cheesy

Let me know if you like them.





I think next time I make one I'll put a pocket inside

This is Simplicity 5499. It's the only purse in the pattern - the rest are clothes.

it's ridiculous that more people haven't commented on your purses, man! 
it's also ridiculous that i can't stop playing with the aboves above the comment box.   Embarrassed

anyway, where do you get your fabric?  i go to fabric stores and nothing appeals to me.  i even see patterns like your lining all the time and never know what goes with it.  hmm.  you have inspired me to whip out all those patterns i bought and didn't don't know how to use.   i should learn by golly!!  i am also in awe at the fact that those are your first two purses you've made.  they're champions--it seriously looks like you've been sewing for years and decades and centuries.   Roll Eyes

Right now I live near a Joann's fabric. I like a lot of their stuff. They have home decorator fabrics that I generally use for the outside of the bags. I like the CHEAP stuff for the lining - I interface everything too.

You said you never know what goes with what - my mom says I have a pretty good eye for coordinating fabrics, but it's just a matter of finding your outer fabric, then taking the bolt over to the regular cheap cotton stuff and looking around. Fabrics kind of jump out at me  Wink

In about a month and a half I'm moving back home and WE HAVE NO FABRIC STORES. OR CRAFT STORES for that matter. Sigh. Walmart is the only place - no joke. For crafts, Michael's is 45 minutes away, and Hobby Lobby is 45 minutes in the other direction. So lame. Sad

any store is already a 25 minute haul for me simply b/c i'm in the middle of the ghetto in cincinnati--so i have to travel to the 'burbs to get anything.   
i suggest you stock up on some fabrics before you go.  i guess purses really do have to be fairly inexpensive to make. if you purchase what... like 24" of each fabric that would be big enough to make a purse, no?  i think the most expensive part are those ridiculously priced bamboo handles.  $6 at jo anne's!  i bought a few burlap bags with those handles attached on sale for $2, same exact handles. i figure i will just throw away the burlap.  they're cute, but i need handles for the purses i am going to pretend to make.  Grin

ok so tell me wise one, what is interfacing? is that the stuff that makes the lining and the outer fabric (or any two fabrics) stick together and help stiffen it before and during sewing?  my mom is 660 miles away and she is trying to teach me how to sew via telephone.  she told me about interfacing.


PS- i made this:



with highlighters, a sharpie, and some mailing labels.  aren't i talented? for shizzle.

Yeah 24" would be more than enough. I usually tend to overbuy, but if you get a pattern it will tell you exactly how much to buy.

There is sew-in interfacing and iron-on interfacing. I like the iron-on kind. You just iron it onto the wrongside of your fabrics and it helps make the fabric more sturdy.

PS- i made this:

Your talent is astonishing. Wink
