i am in LOVE with your bag.
i especially love the camo with the heart fabric.
so i had to make my own... i'm not totally satisfied with my pleats, but i think after a few tries i should get better. also this was my first purse with a zipper, and i'm happy how it turned out.

i'm glad the tute's being put to good use! i looooove all the bags i see!! the pleats take practice. the first few bags i made with pleats wasn't the best, but eventually you'll get it down.

've found that if you fold it over and pin it like in the pictures it helps. then as you sew over each pleat. hold the pleat perpendicular to the machine so it stands straight up and then wiggle it somehow so it splits in half so that way it's a "real" pleat. i may need pics for this explaination.

anyway....glad to see all these purses!!

I'm proud this turned out...it is my first attempt at using zippers in a bag.  i love the look of this bag.  i think i'll embellish it with some buttons or bows and ribbons or something.  havent decided yet. 





sorry about the poor quality of the pictures...i'm beginning to hate my camera....

An excellent tutorial! I saw it and I had to try it, so I dug up a zipper and some leftover fabric and this is what I got...



Not as big as I usually like, and the shape isn't quite right, but there will be many more to come Cheesy Thanks so much!

This is my first post, I have been lurking for two days and this bag really caught my eye, so here I am!  I thought the directions were really great and I love how it turned out, this was also my first time with a zipper.  The exterior fabric is $1 a yard military surplus that I bleached and sanded to give it a more worn look.

It's fabric I silkscreened myself and the lining is from a shirt I reconstructed. I also used a zipper off a pair of pants I don't wear anymore... my new favorite bag was practically free!

I was inspired by this tutorial. I think everyones bags are just great. I made mine a little differently. I used a magnetic clasp instead of a zipper.
