It feels like AGES since last i posted.. and crafted!!
school leaves you no time to craft...  Tongue
now back to what you've been waiting for...

the FIRST bag is one i made in beggining of july before summer school chem begins.. as a book bag! i love the fabrics and the pink material i bought at goodwill was a perfect match!! one big flaw is that the upholstery fabric i thought to have been stiff enough.. wasnt!

c'est la bag.. :

it holds stuff well but it's a bit to flobby...

2nd story:
so yesterday i decided to go to craftster.org and saw some amazing hobo bags that gave me a craft impulse! i rummaged through some fabric scraps and found some perfect fabrics and zipper.  Unlike the previous bag which was planned through, measured and took about three days to make, i just winged it on this purse and was thought through after each step.  and i *heart* the results!!


Comments and criticism are appreciated!

very nice. I especially like your hobo bag.  I just started sewing yesterday, in fact, and am now hooked on it.  I think I'llmake a hobo bag like yours with a really cute dress taht no longer fits. Thanks for the inspiration!

Ooh, I would so like to have that kind of a book bag - just the thing I've been searching for the last *em..* two or three months. Maybe you could post a tute Wink? (School starts in 20 days here, so I'd have the time to actually make it, egoist me, always thinking about me, myself and I Grin)

I love that book bag! I really like the dimensions and the handles compliment the fabric well. The pink on the other side of the lace is a nice touch  Grin

I made a bag just for my books (because i am a library-whore) and put a piece of cardboard at the bottom between the interfacing and lining.. it works GREAT! just an idea for anyone else making one Smiley
anyway that book bag is really cute.. I love how the handles on your bags don't seem to ever end.

OMG...I love your book bag...its so great...I would love to make a bag like that...but I just can't figure out how to sew the top on with the zipper....would you possibly be able to explain or a little tutorial ...maybe!!! Do you have raw edges on the inside or is it fully lined?

Great job
