I hate taking pics of the stuff I made. The things always look wonky and messy.

I have a couple of purses I have been working on.  First up is a tote bag for my mom for Mothers Day. It has been done for a while but I am slow on posting pictures.

Next up is a small purse.  I am toying with creating patterns and decided to go pleated on this one.  I did not make the ties long enough-but the idea is to be able to tie the fabric part on and off to the handles to be able to switch out purses with the handles.  And not have to buy new handles all the time.  It will also be easier to store the fabric parts just folded on my shelf.

And lastly- i Still need to paint these handles.  But they snap on and off similar idea to the above purse.  And this purse has side ties to expand for extra storage but stay slim when the extra room is not needed.

Great bags! I think the red is my favourite too! Although the ruffled one is also very cute.

Great jobs!  Smiley

Love the details on your last bag...the ruffle on the top is something I have not seen...

I use handles like these all the time...I never thought to take them off to use on another bag or for storage! ha...sometimes it is the little things that escape my brain...

 The ruffled one is absolutely beautiful. Love the colors and all. It looks sweet and feminine.
 I love the fabric on the last one with the black polka dotted background too. I like the idea of it expanding but only when you need it so it's not too bulky.
 Wow! Making your own patterns. I bow down to you. That seems SO intimidating to me! The purses turned out great!

 I made another purse too but forgot to post here. I posted on the purse board though. And I am currently (maybe) working on another one. The Halloween one is still in limbo. See, if it's for me it just never gets done.  Undecided But I still plan on working on it. I am going to cut back on swapping next month so I can get back to it. Here is the one I made for bunny1kenobi for the IYP swap...

 Got this fabric from Spoonflower and we both had it pinned as fabric we loved...
,
 I had to alter the pattern to fit the entire panel and I really stressed over it even though once I did it I realized it wasn't that big of a deal.

Gozer, I love the bag!  It is the perfect pattern for that fabric.  The dip down at the top adds interest but does not take away from the fabric.  I love that fabric.  I am going to have to check out Spoonflower.  The placement of the fabric is perfect.  Did you change the pattern to fit the border in or did it just come together perfectly?

 I enlarged the front (and back) panel piece to 120% if memory serves me right. Then I enlarged the gusset piece the same amount and trimmed it back down to be 3" wide but so it was long enough and I could keep the curve of it. I was worried the handles would look to small but I think they turned out fine without scaling them. The fabric image just so happened to fit the curve perfectly. I fussy cut it but nothing else. It was my first time altering a pattern so I psyched myself out on it.
 The yard of fabric left me only one more completed panel or I would have made one for me too. I am sure there will be another project I can use it for though.
