I made this one about a year or so ago. My first project with a sewing machine, and my second attempt at making a bag. I used the basic Jordy pattern to go by. This ones kinda small, I found some polka-dot fabric in my bin & then used an old t-shirt for the lining, no interfacing or anything (actually, I didn't even know what interfacing was at the time! lol)






Then one of my old friends was getting married & I've seen some of those wedding day tote bag in stores, you know for the bride to carry around all her goodies while getting ready on her big day! But I though it would be fun to try to make one. I used a pattern that I got at JoAnn's, though I can't remember the name of it now. I later added their wedding date, below the tux & veil, but I didn't get a photo of that. And this is when I discovered interfacing, which I have loved ever since!







The next one was exciting for me, because it was really spur of the moment! I was getting ready to go back to school & wanted a new bag for my books. So I rummaged through my stuff & found this purple leopard bed skirt & some plain black fabric, and then the flowers are just some scrap felt & random buttons.






This is the most recent one I've done. This was my first attempt working with corduroy, first time making an applique, & first time adding a snap.. It took me a little longer, but I like the way it turned out. I finished it just in time to go see DMB =)

Started out good and just got better. Awesome work! I love the applique on the last one ...and I agree, ever since I discovered interfacing, I was hooked!

Keep on craftin'.  Cheesy

I love your latest one especially.  I really like the way the strap and applique are coordinated.  Cute, cute.

Thanks very much  Smiley
The last one is my favorite, I just wish I would have had more fabric to make it larger! I always carry a bunch of crap around with me, so I tend to favor large bags & this one's a bit small for my taste.
