So I've had a sewing machine for years, always intimidated me a bit. Anyways, I recently got her out and started making some purses (as I'm still terrified of clothes!). So I started with a McCall's pattern (6045)! What was I thinking?! Well the first one came with a ton of issues, and took me a month, but after trying it again I whipped it up in a good two days. This thing called for 3 different types of interfacing, making my own binding tape. Needless to say I learned so much making this bag.





I next chose a Simplicity pattern (2396), it was such a breeze and fun to make.

A photo with my doggy, she has to be the center of everything!


Well thanks for looking, the goal is to get a lot better at sewing, so C&C's welcome!

Beautiful purses, all of them! 
I was trying to pick a favorite and I don't think I can.  My top two are the red/white one with the leaves and the one with your puppy in the picture Smiley

looks like you've been busy. They all look great. I really like the fabric you used on the green/blue/white flower one.

Great bags there. I really like the one second from bottom, fabric wise. And I really like the dog. She looks like she's a very sweet dog  Smiley
